My work as therapist
De-stress and rediscover your equilibrium
We all need help but not just any kind of help: we need help that is suited to our specific needs. How can we know that we are in need of help? When worry, stress, guilt, anger, shame, jealousy or fear become harmful for our health, when they persist over a long period, we know we are in need of help. We also know we are in need of help when we feel alone, abandoned, disliked or unloved.
We can then lose our internal tranquility, self confidence and sometimes even feel that we never possessed these qualities.There are many forms of therapy and to tell yourself that you have not gained anything from a therapy that you underwent is to confirm that you don’t like all fruits because you tasted one alone! Good therapy is one which is adapted to the patient and it is the only therapy that can be successful with that patient.
It is for this reason that study and practical experiences are fundamental and they let us know that there is no one exclusive therapy that is suited for everyone. There are people who like to speak, those who like to listen, those who like to be touched and those who hate it. There are thus a large number of techniques and not less than a hundred practised in the United States alone. Psychodynamic therapies can follow the principles and practices of Freud, Jung, Horney, or Adler. Cognitive-behavioral therapists are sometimes cognitive and sometimes behavioral and can lean on a palette of techniques that are the result of their training and personal experience. But, there is also EMDR which integrates the aspects of other therapies and offers a completely different kind of therapy to patients.
My role as a therapist here is to act as a guide for the body and spirit, helping my patients recover their health, equilibrium, well-being and harmony through different therapies.Sessions last between 30 minutes and an hour depending on the needs and are preceded by a complete diagnosis.In fact, EMDR helps in reaching the emotions of the patient which are stored in the implicit memory and not the explicit or narrative one.
Through a light beam directed by the therapist in a continual come and go manner, moving in direction from left to right and right to left, guiding and controlling thus the ocular movements, one has access to physical sensations which are part of the initial event causing trauma.
There is no need to speak, to recount in the finest detail, your life at that moment. This technique just allows your body to eliminate trauma by the sensation of physical emotions provoked by repetitive ocular movements.In just a few sessions, the patient completely eliminates traumas which are associated with “any event that has a long lasting negative effect.”Intelligence, spiritual level and instruction have nothing to do with the process of recovery.Learning to live with hurt is not at all equivalent to digesting it completely and eliminating it permanently…
The results are effective and measurable session after session.Through the course of one session, it is possible that I may use different kinds of therapies depending on the deciphered physical or psychological pain that needs to be eliminated.Stress brought about by general conditions of living and certain specific stages of life remain today, the most common carriers of risk.
Through the course of my professional experience I have been able to treat certain forms of multiple sclerosis, anorexia, bulimia, back pain, physical traumas, divorce related stress, failure at studies, physical abuse, facial paralysis, repetitive migraines, somnambulism, vertigo, extreme nervousness, aggressiveness, lack of desire and sexual libido, depression, various neuroses…
Before treating, I question, interrogate, listen, understand, and only after that I prepare a cycle that is organized as an individual or group therapy, specific work, and time management of work done together. All this is organized quickly as fortnightly sessions and sometimes even daily sessions or monthly ones, so that a first step can be taken towards recovery, in a spirit of commitment and tranquility (around 10 to 20 sessions depending on the pain diagnosis).
