An integrative approach

My approach is intended to be integrative, mainly based on

humanists & existential and systemic referentials. I use tools from narrative practices and hypnosis.

humanist & existential

The humanist approach appeared in the 1940s in the United States, mainly under the impetus of Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow. The general intention of this approach is to promote (through a positive climate of encounter) the emergence or updating of resources of the person. The latter can thus acquire more autonomy and continue its growth where it had been slowed down or stopped (causing suffering, complaint and demand).

 

This approach is a form of eco-therapy: a search for balance within the framework of the persons' environment (physical, relational, etc.) and which takes into account the evolution their needs and aspirations (Bioy and Maquet, 2015).

Existentialist psychology is rooted in existentialist philosophy as well as European psychology developed by Kierkegaard, Sartre, Camus, and Binswanger. It is about approaching the existential issues at the heart of each individual, whose psychic dynamics revolve around motivations, forces, conscious and unconscious fears, but also and above all creative potential to find meaning.

Thus, the central concept that connects humanists and existentialism is that of become. The underlying philosophy is to recognize the principle of humanity in all beings, through the relationship which is an experience in itself and guides – in its therapeutic principle – towards the self-determination (gain freedom to make choices in conscience and responsibility).

Systémique & narrtive

Narrative practices originated in Australia, from the work of Michael White and David Epston (1990). They are part of the systemic approach, in which the problem is understood by the relations that the person maintains with the different systems in which they evolve. These systems are the family, the professional and social environment as well as the society in which the person lives.

Based on the work of philosophers such as Deleuze, Derrida, Foucault and Ricoeur, it is considered in narrative practices that "every individual organizes his/her experience in a narrative mode, that is to say in the form of stories. And these are these stories that give meaning to the experience".

The narrative approach, stemming from social constructionism, takes us aboard relational and identity stories to other possible destinations. By reconsidering and moving away from suffocating stories, it aims to tame and amplify these other stories, often muted, which honor the person's life preferences.

 

It's about re-opening the possibility of being Narr-Actor (Mori, 2004).

hypnosis

Hypnosis is above all a natural state of dissociation. In practice, hypnosis makes it possible to find this natural state and to deepen it. This state, close to paradoxical sleep, is very interesting since it allows you to open up new paths and bring out resources through a physical, psychic and emotional ​experience.

 

Hypnosis is a tool thatis based on techniques and theoretical knowledge. My practice is nourished by my initial training at the CHTIP (Collège d'Hypnose et de Thérapies Brèves de Paris), additional training at the UTHyL institute, by my experience, but also by my readings of practitioners, theorists and precursors in the field. such as Milton Erickson, Francois Roustang and Ernest Rossi.​

 

hypnosis is a process that is part of the relationship and requires alearning. This learning is not formal, it takes place through experience. I accompany you in this learning to access the capacities and resources that you have within you to gain autonomy and emancipation.
