The first session is always your personal assessment and contrating time, lasting 1 or 1,5 hours. It is very important we start your therapeutic process with assessment. We focus on your history and I help you to develop an insight into your behaviour patterns in your sexual-life history and how these limiting patterns affect your present situation. We also establish your expected outcome, what would you like to achieve, based on your chosen purpose of your therapeutic work.
How PST therapy help you achieve your goal we established together in your assessment sesison?
In PST work with clients I use a combination of psychotherapeutic and embodiment techniques, to facilitate the release of restrictive and uncomfortable memories and body experience
Talk therapy you will be part of to acknowledge cognitive awareness is the first step to your empowerment. By understanding how and why you avoid intimacy we can begin to make different choices that support greater connection, intimacy and pleasure.
Breath Techniques to help you to connect with yourself – most people struggling in life, especially sex and intimacy are partly dissociated from their body. Breathing is one of the keys to reconnecting with your body, to developing embodied presence and to generating sexual energy. I help you to learn and use different breath-work techniques to cultivate, move and direct awareness and feeling of sexual energy, creating connections in the body.
Mindfulness experience that can help you to increase your awareness is another step towards empowerment. PST applies somatic mindfulness and erotic mindfulness to help increase your awareness of limiting beliefs and how they manifest in the body. When we are connected with our thoughts, feelings and physical sensations we can remain present in intimacy and not enter dissociated states or familiar patterns of avoidant behavior. Mindfulness also contributes to creating a positive neurological state.
Neuro Regulation important skills to learn is down-regulation of your the autonomic nervous system. PST works safely with trauma and helps to create new neural pathways. You learn how to manage feeling, emotions you may be scared (anger, grief, shame…) How to deal when you feel anxiety, or experiencing any limiting body reactions.
Embodiment Techniques we – focus on your awareness of the felt experience in the moment. By helping you becoming aware of physical sensations and any associated emotional responses we can begin to integrate body and mind into a more cohesive whole which creates a stronger sense of selfhood.
Integration – important part of each session to bring few minutes before we end your session is to give you time to integrate and bring awareness of resources and your gain experience and informations.
