My working method.
I consider ” the psychological work ” as a journey and as such it can have different routes, all viable, leading to different discoveries, all equally interesting. Each one of us is as it is because there is a reason.
Travelling to discover ourselves we can meet and know our personal “reason of being” thus understanding our sufferings, our truths, our needs … ourselves. The journey can be accomplished at all ages and for various reasons. For each person will open specific travel routes both for age (childhood, adolescence, adulthood) and for the reason that leads us to ” start ” (anxiety, school difficulties, relational difficulties, difficulties in the relationship with children and / or partner, separations, losses, etc..) and for the type of trip (alone, in pairs, with the family, or with a small group).
Step by step, in the opportunity of meeting and confrontation that this journey can offer, it can be realized “the wonder” of meeting themselves without veils and we can learn to name our pain, we can learn to accept and accept who we are and we can understand how to change, learning to accept even what can not be changed.
How can I help you?
Help certainly begins with the therapeutic relationship as a contact between two human beings, the therapeutic relationship is based on listening, openness and trust, but this, although essential, is not enough: even experience and professionalism are necessary to the therapeutic relationship. In an absolutely non-judgmental listening climate of maximum empathy I use in a personalized way the methods of Bioenergetic Analysis, and of Neoericksonian Psychotherapy, applied in synergy with the techniques of relaxation of the autogenic Training with the Imaginative Therapies, and for more than thirty years I have been practising meditation and studying the ancient teachings of Buddhist philosophy and psychology and this has allowed me to experiment with ways of help, such as the mindfulness that effectively integrate the therapeutic practice.
Bioenergetic Analysis: Lowen, the Body, the Grounding
“Without love – for ourselves, for others, for nature and for the universe, the individual is cold, detached and inhuman. From our heart flows the heat that unites us to the world in which we live”(A.Lowen)
Bioenergetic Analysis is a therapeutic method that has its roots in Psychoanalysis and combines – in addition to traditional analytical work – work on the body and observation of its language. developed by Alexander Lowen, it has its roots in the character analysis of W. Reich, who discovered that the patient’s symptoms represent a psychic defence that is structured in the body in the form of chronic muscle tension.
The principle on which Bioenergetic analysis is based is the functional identity between muscle tension and emotional blockage, between body and mind, and between body and mind. the functional identity between muscle tension and emotional blockage, between body and mind, and between body and mind, is the basis of Bioenergetic Analysis. It is based on the assumption that mind and body are an indivisible unit and that the body is able to manifest our most hidden emotions, our thoughts, our mind. According to this approach, therefore, the rigid body postures, muscle tensions etc. are often the mirror of energy blocks and emotional knots, so it becomes necessary to work both on the psyche (mind, soul) and on the body.
“Hypnosis does not exist, everything is Hypnosis”(Milton Erickson)
Hypnosis is a particular psychophysiological condition, a way of functioning of the nervous system, different from both sleep and wakefulness, but in any case physiological, which belongs to us every time we automatically perform repetitive activities, or when we are following an inner activity, imagined or remembered, to the point of being so absorbed by it as to completely dissociate ourselves from the surrounding reality. As demonstrated by Milton Erickson during his lifelong work, states of trance are natural manifestations, which belong to the natural human potential and which are experienced daily in the ordinary changes of consciousness and systems that regulate our organism (nervous, circulatory, endocrine, etc..).
Clinical hypnosis can be defined as the set of procedures to develop and use trance states in order to promote the harmonization of brain functions, the integration of thought and intuition, reason and emotion: a progressive training to make the right hemisphere work to activate resources and abilities in order to promote change.
Mindfulness, Meditation and Ericksonian Hypnosis
The practices of meditation and hypnosis constitute a fascinating and significant meeting area between psychology, neuroscience and philosophy, in terms of both psychotherapeutic and evolutionary aspects. Meditation and hypnosis appear to be completely different and independent subjects in terms of history, culture, definitions and use, but they are actually more intimately connected than you can imagine.
Meditation and contemplative traditions have for centuries refined practices useful to pacify the mind, relax the psycho-corporeal system and cultivate transpersonal qualities and achieve increasingly advanced levels of integration between compassion and wisdom.
Hypnosis and self-hypnosis can become powerful allies to support meditation, they can help us develop the ability to observe everything that happens while remaining at the center of ourselves, preserving our inner peace.
Self-hypnosis can be at the service of meditation and support the journey to our center everything that takes us away from ourselves, from our truth, can be defined as negative hypnosis, everything that brings us back to ourselves, to the center of our interiority, meditation.
Only when we are really in the present moment we can get out of the trance, in the present, the role of the mind is reduced to that of a simple servant and awareness can guide us.
EMDR: how it works
EMDR is the acronym for “Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing” which means: Desensitization and Re-processing through eye movements.
This is a therapeutic technique developed from the intuition of the researcher Francine Shapiro (1987).
The American Psychologist noticed that – when very negative thoughts crossed her mind – her eyes started to move faster in a rhythmic way and in a diagonal direction.
She then assumed that there was a link between thought and eye movement.
She then began to observe how the thoughts that disturbed her appeared and under what conditions they lost their negative charge.
As she studied the use of eye movements, she realized that – thanks to particular movements – it was possible to reduce the negative emotions associated with a thought or a memory.
He later began to experiment with victims of severe traumatic experiences, such as survivors of fatal accidents or natural disasters.
T.R.E.®(Tension & Trauma Releasing Exercises )
• T.R.E. is an innovative psychocorporeal technique designed by American researcher and psychotherapist David Berceli.
• T.R.E. is a set of simple and effective exercises guided by the therapist, specifically designed to facilitate the emergence of neurogenic tremor to release tension, stress and trauma.
• Neurogenic tremor is a natural and spontaneous manifestation of muscle tremors that allow you to release the tensions and stresses accumulated to bring the body back into balance and recover a full psychophysical well-being.
