The only possibile way to be in the world is to interact with it; this is a complex process which involves body and mind in a constant balance between “yourself” and “the other”. I work in the “in between”, trying to create the best way for my client to feel complete and happy.
As a psychologist, I was trained how to help people priveleging the mind. When I first started working with clients, I soon discovered how mind and body are inextricably linked. By striving to better understand this connection, I have become expert in how mind and body affect each other.
Look at things in a new perspective
Try thinking for a moment that what you experience with food is not just a symptom, but the only creative way your body has found to deal with a problem it is struggling with. What your system is attempting to do is to create a form of relationship between your “inside" and the world outside in order to guarantee your survival.
I can help you to discover your strength, to find a satisfying relationship with food and to take a lead in your own life.
Sometimes, to reconnect ourself to our bodies and become aware of the signals it is giving us, we just need to breath
Through an array of Gestalt therapy techniques, we can explore together in a non-judgmental setting all the positive possibilities you have for being in contact with your world. Our aim will be to find the ones that better suit you and your needs in the present, with a goal of developing better self-support.
In this way, we can build a positive more relationship with food and eating. Does it seem easier to think about changing your behaviours around food, when you look at them in this way?
The Gestalt approach is a hopeful point of view on human experience because it recognises the possibility to change in the present and learn effective strategies to start again, developing a better relationship with food, eating and the world around us. As part of the WeightMatters team I will guide and support you in this process, exploring with you the best way to become aware of yourself and your possibilities. Starting with your body, we will work to create a truer connection between you and your real needs, making a deep change on the way you perceive and live your life.
