The therapeutic approach is inspired by the transpersonal psychotherapy, understanding the individual as a whole: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. The environment should be informal, stimulating for the creativity and open to new findings.
My therapeutic approach can include hypnosis, relaxing, regression and active imagination techniques, as well as conscious breathing, energy therapy and body conscience.
The appointments can take place once every two weeks or once every month, according to the patient's situation and availability.
Between each appointment some activities can be recommended in order to increase the conscience level on the process as well as acquire specific competences. They might include meditation, specific body movements, spending time in the nature, artistic or writing expression, amongst other.
