At the core of my therapeutic practice lie speech and listening, two fundamental pillars that guide my sessions towards a deep understanding of your experiences, emotions, and needs. This empathetic approach creates a space of trust and openness where you can progress at your own pace.
I integrate other therapeutic methods into this foundation that I believe align with your situation:
I am wholeheartedly committed to providing you with a space of trust and a warm environment to enable you to open up at your own pace.
I am fully aware of the sacred and vulnerable nature of a therapeutic relationship, and I pledge to uphold this trust by maintaining the quality of my presence and strictly adhering to professional confidentiality.
My practice is guided by a holistic view of psychology, which involves considering the individual as a whole. Thus, my approach to human beings takes into account their physical, mental, emotional, familial, social, cultural, and spiritual dimensions. I firmly believe that we all possess an extraordinary potential for healing and personal growth, and my mission is to gently accompany you on your own path while respecting your pace.
Driven by my passion for therapy and its practice, I continually update my knowledge through training and by nurturing my personal practice to provide you with quality therapeutic support. The maturity, wisdom, and experience that result from self-work cannot be compared to knowledge acquired from books. Therefore, my guidance is greatly inspired and guided by what I have gained through my own journey.
Initially driven by a passion for child, adolescent psychology, and family dynamics, my experiences have gradually led me to specialize in various areas of support:
What Is Trauma?
Trauma occurs when the emotions associated with an event or situation overwhelm a person and leave lasting imprints on their psyche. When traumas occur, the brain may sometimes struggle to fully integrate them, resulting in memories that can be reactivated by everyday events. Therapy becomes a crucial support for understanding, coping with, and overcoming the suffering related to post-traumatic stress, including intrusive images, persistent thoughts, persistent anxiety, uncomfortable physical reactions, and associated emotional imbalances.
Support for Issues Related to Sexuality
In the realm of sexuality, I pay special attention to facilitating a gentle exploration of past traumas, your personal journey, and the impact of these experiences on the challenges you face. Sexual disorders can take various forms, including pain during intercourse, a lack of interest or sexual desire, difficulties related to arousal or orgasm, or challenges in establishing intimate relationships, among others.
Regardless of the origins of your difficulties, whether known or buried, we embark on a sensitive and compassionate exploration of your history, addressing the psychological and psychosomatic dimensions of the issues you experience. My deep interest in the delicate exploration of sexuality, often surrounded by taboos and mysteries, inspires me profoundly. In the family, educational, and social context, it is undeniable that there is a significant lack of education and transmission regarding sexuality.
My desire is to guide each individual on a journey of reconnection with this fundamental aspect of their existence. My specialization lies in supporting survivors of sexual traumas such as rape, incest, and abuse. I am here to provide support in exploring the psychological consequences of these experiences. After working on trauma resolution, it becomes possible to rediscover pleasure through mindfulness and sexuality psychology approaches. My profound commitment is to create a path to emotional healing and personal fulfilment for every individual I accompany.
Anxiety, Stress, and Phobias
I am here to support you with compassion and expertise through the challenges of anxiety, stress, and phobias that can sometimes feel overwhelming.
These are natural states that we all encounter at some point in our lives. I believe in the importance of deeply understanding the origins and patterns that fuel them. By exploring your thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, we will work hand in hand to identify the triggers and underlying mechanisms behind these states.
We will explore mindfulness and relaxation-based techniques to support you in your daily life. In addition, I integrate a deep exploration of traumas. Together, we will gradually address the situations that trigger your phobias. The goal is to help you feel more control and confidence in situations that were once sources of anxiety.
The psychotherapeutic work we undertake together is not just aimed at alleviating symptoms but also at helping you develop a profound understanding of yourself and your emotions.
