Anxiety

Occasional feelings of anxiety are a normality in our life. However, people with anxiety disorders often experience intense, excessive, and persistent worries and fears about daily situations. Anxiety disorders often have repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense, unjustified fear or terror that peak in a matter of minutes (panic attacks).

These feelings of anxiety and panic interfere with daily activities, are difficult to control, are disproportionate compared to actual danger, and can last a long time. A common prevention most people choose to adopt is characterised by avoiding certain places or situations. However, this is not the way of healing the issue. Anxiety symptoms can start in childhood or adolescence and persist into adulthood if untreated.

Some examples of anxiety disorder are: generalised anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder (social phobia), specific phobias, and separation anxiety disorder. We can have more than one anxiety disorder. Sometimes anxiety arises from an illness that requires treatment.

Whatever type of anxiety you have, a treatment can be used and I am here to help you overcome it.

Avoidant responses and attitudes are a common trait in people with anxiety. For this reason, it is important to seek and accept therapeutic help to transform the fears into strengths.

Depresion

Depression

According to the WHO, depression is a frequent mental disorder, characterised by the presence of sadness, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt and lack of self-esteem. It can also be manifested through insomnia, eating disorders, feeling tired and lack of concentration.

Depression can become chronic or recurrent and significantly impair one’s performance at work or school and the ability to cope with daily life. Once we notice alterations in our social and personal life, we should seek professional help to explore the cause and root of the problem.

Depression has many causes and it is important to understand where it comes from and to be able to treat it effectively with a professional and integral approach.

trauma

Trauma

The word trauma derives from the Greek language and directly translates as “wound”. We can look at it as a “psychological injury” which can be caused by various situations. For example, when we hear about trauma, we often associate it with problems caused by major natural disasters, wars, accidents, abuse, etc. 

Specialists call them Traumas with “T” for the great magnitude they cause. There is also another category of trauma with “t”, the origin of which is related to apparently minor events. For example: lack of protection, humiliation, change of roles in the family, etc.

However, the importance of the causes of trauma does not determine the quality of the damage it causes. A “Trauma” can be as harmful as a “trauma”, because its effects will depend on each person’s mental structure, personal history and emotional environment as well as the recurrence of the traumatic event (if the case). Trauma, no matter its origins, affects our health, safety and well-being in such a way that may make us develop false, destructive beliefs about ourselves and the world.

PSTD

PTSD

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a trauma and stress-related disorder that may develop after the exposure to an unpleasant event in which death or severe physical harm occurred or was threatened. People who suffer from the disorder could include military troops, rescue workers, and survivors of shootings, bombings, violence, and rape (Sexual Abuse). Family members of victims can develop the disorder as well through vicarious trauma.

When symptoms develop immediately after exposure and persist for up to a month, the condition may be called acute stress disorder. PTSD is diagnosed when the stress symptoms following exposure have persisted for over a month. Delayed expression of PTSD can occur if symptoms arise six months or more following the onset of trauma.

This is one of the most common disorders in people that have been sexually abused. As sexual abuse is a complex matter and has a direct impact on sexuality, I recommend a holistic approach to deal with it. Group Therapy and EMDR Therapy are often a good option.

Couples Therapy & Polyamory Therapy

Couples & Polyamory Counseling

It’s a psychotherapeutic appoach for those in a relationship, wether its marriage, open relationship or a polyamorous relationship any type of romantic relationship we are engaged in. The goal is to improve and strengthen the relationship(s). This type of therapeutic approach can also help decide whether or not partners should continue staying together. Although the focus usually goes onto the couple (or more), there are times when the individual psychological issues of each member of the system need to be addressed separately.

Counseling often includes sessions designed to improve problem solving, build communication skills, and identify life goals and relationship responsibilities. Other common issues include infidelity, financial problems, illness and other life changes, and anger.

Depending on the level of distress in the relationship, the process can be short term or over a period of several months.

Clinical and Sexological Hypnotherapy​

Clinical and Sexological Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis used as a tool to facilitate the treatment of several dysfunctions or disorders, or simply to enhance inner resources:

  • FMS (Fibromyalgia) pain management.
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Vulvodinia
  • Sexual (and non sexual) performance Anxiety
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Dissociation.
  • etc.
Sex Therapy​

Sex Therapy

Sex therapy consists in a therapeutic way aimed to improve the sexual function and treat the sexual dysfunctions. Some of the sexual dysfunctions that can be addressed are premature/ delayed ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, lack of sexual interest or arousal, and painful sex (vaginismus and dyspareunia). It includes dealing with paraphilias, highly overactive libido or hypersexuality, a lack of sexual confidence, recovering from sexual abuse, such as rape, sexual assault, and sexual issues related to aging, illness, or disability. No matter the issue root, it can be treated and overcome.

The focus that I give to my work doesn’t rest only on dealing  with and solving the issue. It rather aims to help one be able to flourish, learn to connect while enjoying in a healthier and pleasurable way.

Sex Therapy is also a form of therapy suitable for everyone going through a sex change or dealing with their sexual orientation, sex, gender, etc.

Bioenergetics consciousintimacycenter

Bioenergetics

A body-focused psychotherapy that  integrally treats the mind and body as one. The two are each affecting the other, and so the technique is based in seeing people not as having a body, but as being the body. Bioenergetic practices explore the inexorable link between them, understanding that the energetic processes of the body influence what happens both in the mind and the body. 

With Bioenergetics one can ease and release chronic muscular tensions fixated or structured in the body as a result of our means to survival in our own environment. Whether its our home, or your society that tends to deny and repress body-values such as pleasure, joy, and compassion, we assimilate these tensions at a body level. Same principle also works for people that have been repressed their own frustrations as they weren’t allowed to express their pain, repressing it mentally, emotionally, and physically. 

Bioenergetics have 3 main principles: Grounding, Breathing and Vibration.
All of them break down into other phases aimed allow us to feel what we need, be grounded in the present moment, be able to release the tension reflected in our body and allow  free self-expression.

The goal of this therapeutic approach is to help us live a joyful life, without the constriction experienced in the body. To be able to enjoy pleasure and love with a vibrant health. 

HYPNOTHERAPY

FAQS & DEFINITION

Hypnosis a state of focalised concentration and deep relaxation which allows a more efficient connection to your subconscious mind, and thus, helping you create the desired changes. 

Hypnosis is the technique that allows us to enter a trance state, a state which is natural for all of us, as we go into that state daily while doing things like: watching TV, daydreaming, or doing something on “autopilot”. 

The DIFFERENCE between this and Hypnotherapy, is that the last one is used for therapeutic purposes and must be done exclusively by trained therapists.
The Hypnotist uses hypnosis mostly for show purposes (Ex: Making someone bark), while the Hypnotherapist uses it for therapy and healing.

The hypnotherapy is usually practiced by psychotherapists and in most of the cases uses a psychotherapeutic school with it (Ex: managing pain or going to the root of a trauma and operate in it.) 

In a hypnotic state there is a part of your conscious mind that remains in control. 

People under hypnosis can reach different levels or depth of trance states: 

-Hypnoidal: This is the one that most people experience, it is so light that some people feel like they aren’t even hypnotised. 

-Medium trance: you may experience some light paresthesia or anesthesia. This is a great level to work with most people. 

-Deep State/ Sonambulic: The deeper the level, the more things that can be done and changed for the benefit of the person. 

Movies have given us an idea that anyone can be hypnotised for mischievous deeds. As we all have an ethical compas, the person will stick to it under hypnosis. So no, you can’t do anything that you don’t want. 

No, if the hypnotherapist were to go away or disappear, the person under hypnosis would wake up naturally. 

Hypnosis produces a great number of benefits, as it helps people get more focused, relaxed as it also regulates tension, cardiac and respiratory rhythms. However, it should be performed by a trained professional. There are many different ways to get someone into a hypnotic state, one of these is the use of focused attention into lights or blinking lights, which is an approach that wouldn’t be recommended for people with epilepsia. And is usually not advised for people with schizophrenia

As long as they want to yes, you can’t be hypnotized against your own free will. 

Yes, and that is actually the point. To teach people how to do it by themselves, sometimes sound recording may play an important role.

No, it is a technique. The therapist brings its own therapeutic school of knowledge into the practice and uses it together with hypnosis. 

Hypnotherapy and Sexual Issues

Hypnosis has proven to facilitate and accelerate therapies, as well as helping people create better ways to deal with difficult sexual situations. 

Hypnotherapy can help with: 

Hypnotherapy combined with clinical psychology, clinical sexology, body therapy and sexual education can help you connect with a more enjoyable intimacy and sexual life from an integral approach.

Pain Management and Trauma

When talking about pain management, this is being used in a wide range of treatments, from tattoo sessions, to dentistry, surgeries and even hypnotic births without any form of anesthesia. 

It has also been used (and I do also use it) for the management of pain in Fibromyalgia (FMS) which is a chronic form of muscle esqueletal pain. 

More, it can be used for affections as dyspaurenia and vaginismus- which usually lead to painful sexual experiences. 

The use of hypnosis for trauma has been widely practiced, as it facilitates the attention and the ability to remember events (including also traumatic events). With the right therapeutic approach, it can be used to help operate on those events, helping to solve them.
Pain management is also effective in treating anxiety, PTSD and addiction that may have developed after a traumatic event.
