In my practice, I use various therapeutic tools in order to adapt my intervention to the needs or evolution of psychotherapy.

Certain methods are more comprehensive and have a positive effect on a person’s way of thinking and their capacity to cope. Other tools, taken from traumatology, enable the desensitization of highly-charged emotional situations, including trauma and bereavement.

For those who encounter problems in the professional world and in their studies, I also have tools that can be adjusted to individual needs, enabling a high degree of efficacy, while at the same time preserving and protecting your mental and physical health.

According to the UK Royal College of Psychiatry, CBT is recommended for treating anxiety, depression, panic attacks/phobias, stress, addictions, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress and psychosis. It can also help coping with anger, low self-esteem or physical problems, such as pain or fatigue.

CBT looks at the way we think and behave in problematic situations, and encourages us to question our “automatic thinking”, and try out new behaviours.

People who have benefited from CBT usually report greater self confidence. They demonstrate a healthier approach to coping with situations and people, and are more optimistic about the future.

Positive psychology helps to develop “what works well” by focusing on our rich inner resources and competencies. It encourages us to explore various perspectives and choices at our disposal, which allows us to lead our lives in a more empowered way.

For those interested in this approach, Xenia Heinze and I propose a positive psychology therapy group. To ask more information

Ericksonian hypnosis uses a modified state of consciousness to reach and tap into the internal resources we all have, and bring about change.

EMDR uses bilateral eye movements (or tone/taps) to disactivate disturbing thoughts, sensations and feelings emerging in certain situations, or linked to traumas.

Lifespan Integration is a very gentle method which works on a deep neural level to help people who have suffered from traumas and/or neglect during childhood. After several sessions of LI, patients usually feel better about life, feel more secure emotionally, and report a more peaceful and accepting view of their past.

ImTT is a gentle therapy that releases painful feelings linked to traumas or difficult experiences without having to relive those feelings. It also helps reduce dissociation or sensations of shock.

ImTT takes place in three stages. The first stage consists of releasing the emotional charge associated with an image; the second stage involves deconstructing this image; the final stage comprises placing the image in a new time context.
In this way, the image becomes definitely something of the past, losing its emotional content in the present.

Brainspotting is a brainbased psychotherapy approach that uses the field of vision to find where a person is holding any negative experience or trauma in her brain. If a person is looking at a problem, there are fields of vision where she’d feel more activated and others where she’d feel less activated. So brainspotting consists of holding the exact pinpoint area where one feels more activated, and unwinding it until it gets to a point of resolution.

Induced After Death Communication (IADC) is a brief therapy for dealing with grief and trauma. It helps grieving people come to terms with their loss by allowing them to experience an inner communication with their departed ones.

IADC uses EMDR, but in a quite different way from standard EMDR. Typically it involves two to three 90 min. sessions within a 2-5 days interval in between sessions.

In addition, for those interested in this approach, a session in mediumship is also possible. Further information can be found on the website 2 Worlds, medium Geneva.

I teach working methods which allow the person to cope with the pressures of the professional and academic world.

Perfectionism can lead to burnout. The tools I use identify efficient working methods and protect the person from becoming overloaded.

I also use techniques which help those who perform better under stress and those who suffer from performance anxiety.
