THOUGHTS AND THERAPEUTIC BELIEFS
Regarding the Therapeutic Process
I believe in team work between a therapist and a client. The
therapist is not an expert who has all the solutions, but rather,
somebody who can guide and accompany another person in the discovery
of himself/herself who can then take charge of his/her own life’s
Our body tells our story, and as such, it is a wonderful gateway to
access the psyche and the emotions. When coupled with analysis, body
work enables both client and therapist to do in-depth work and
resolve inner conflicts.
It is not merely the arrival point that counts. The path one takes
to get there can also offer many moments of joyful discovery and
well-being along the way.
of age, regardless of the difficulty we are faced with, change is
always possible, even on a small scale.
We do not have the power to change other people but we can change
ourselves and modify our way of being in relation with others in
order to bring more peace and harmony into our relationships.
Often times, the conflicts we experience with other people in our
environment are but a reflection of conflicts going on inside of
ourselves between two “voices”, one of which is often that of a
parent, while the other is that of the child within striving to be
heard. Opening a dialogue between those voices can bring change and
a better integration of all the aspects of our being.
We do not always have the power to intervene on difficult situations
in order to modify them, but we have the power to modify the way we
experience these situations in order to give them meaning.
One cannot pull on a blade of grass to make it grow. Sometimes, we
have to be patient with ourselves when we decide to commit to an
in-depth process of change.
Regarding the emotions we
is not necessarily destructive. When we learn to own it instead of
being possessed by it, anger is a life force that enables us to
speak up for ourselves, to set our boundaries, to assert ourselves
and to take our place into the world.
Shame can be transcended as soon as we are convinced that every
human being deserves respect and has the right to be who he/she is,
starting with ourselves.
Compassion and openness of the heart towards ourselves and others
are powerful tools for healing the wounds that were inflicted to us
in the past.
