"Therapy is designed to release the soul's inborn brilliance and beauty." John Pierrakos
Body-psychotherapy is based on the integration of the present body, mind and emotion in a context of relational co-regulation. My somatic work is based on the perspective of J.Bowlby's attachment theory, body mindfulness, neuropsychology, Stephen Porges' polyvagal theory, Laurence Heller's Neuro-Affective Relational Model (NARM) approach, Interpersonal Neuro-Biology (IPNB) by PhD Daniel Siegel and Core Energetics by John Pierrakos.
When we are born, we have all the vital energy flowing freely in our organism. Throughout our growth, we live painful experiences that generate reactions in our physical, emotional and mental bodies, blocking the natural flow of vital energy. These defense mechanisms were crucial in our childhood to survive at the time to be able to maintain the most primary attachment relationship. However, when we keep repeating them throughout our lives in our present, they no longer serve us because they limit our full expression and satisfaction as adults. Body-oriented psychotherapy explores the obstacles that disconnect us from the vital flow and that prevent us from connecting with ourselves, and invites us to take new actions in the present that help us emotionally complete the traumatic experiences of the past.
In the sessions, I accompany you in a space of trust and security to allow the physical and emotional expression of your life experiences in a two-way cognitive-bodily approach. I use curiosity, listening to your bodily emotions, neutrality, and presence to allow experiences to emerge in order to integrate an embodied awareness of the internal conflict that was previously perceived as irreconcilable. In a therapeutic process you learn to increase your ability to authentically feel your negative and positive emotions, to integrate internal conflicts leaving room for the vital energy that you learned to retain in the past, and to experience new possibilities of acting in the present in the face of situations that previously generated an automatic reaction.
A therapeutic process requires a commitment to your own growth in order to come into contact with the hidden parts of yourself and incorporate the qualities that make you a unique and more complete being..
Sessions can be in Spanish, Catalan, English, French and Portuguese.
REBIRTHING BREATHWORK THERAPY
"We breathe as we live, and we live as we breathe"
WHAT IS REBIRTHING
Rebirthing Breathwork is a profound and effective personal development and healing therapy based on conscious and connected breathing of vital energy. Connected breathing means breathing without pauses between inhalation and exhalation in a circular motion similar to a baby's spontaneous breathing. The circularity of the breath allows us to breathe not only oxygen, but also Energy, Prana or Qi.
Rebirthing therapy also studies the trauma of birth and its effects on your life.
HOW IS A SESSION?
By increasing the amount of vital energy in your body in a smooth and safe way, you begin to release physical tension, sometimes come into contact with limiting mental beliefs, or experience blocked emotions in your system that have been unconscious in your life history. Normally the process brings to consciousness the unconscious experiences that you are ready to process and give new meaning to your life.
The releasing process is naturally followed by an integration process. It is usually experienced as a state of deep peace, relaxation, and connection with oneself. Your consciousness is then expanded and you have the ability to integrate new experiences giving them a new meaning, different from what it used to be for you.
The objective of breathing therapy is to give a sense to the present, resignifying what prevented us from evolving in the past, looking from the attention and full awareness of the current healthy adult.
Throughout the therapeutic process, you learn about your breathing patterns and how to modify them in order to regulate your emotional states, expand your ability to feel, and broaden your self-awareness. My work with breathing is subtle and full of presence, paying special attention and care to create a safe and trusting space to deepen in your process.
- Breathing sessions are individual so that you can work deeply on your personal issues. In long-term treatments, I combine the breathing technique with other body-psychotherapy tools to better adapt to your process.
- I accompany breathing sessions to work deeply into your own Birth Script. I use exercises to inquire about how yo were bornt, identify how it is expressed in your current behaviour, and find ways to transform it in the present.
- The group sessions with the support of music are carried out giving individualized attention to each participant. I work with small groups and only with prior request.
I attend in Spanish, Catalan, English, Portuguese and French.
The benefits of breathing vary greatly for each person and session. Although the main benefits are best obtained in long-term treatments, a single session can also bring profound positive changes in your life. Throughout a Rebirthing treatment:
- You release chemical toxins and heavy metals from your body by oxygenating your cells and organs
- You calm your nervous system and decrease anxiety
- You increase immunity and feel more vitality
- You relax and open your diaphragm
- You balance the metabolic system
- You regulate your moods and
- You improve concentration and mental clarity.
Breathing is such a natural and effective tool for our system that in a few sessions you can perceive great changes in your life.
Somatic Relational Therapist
Rebirthing Breathwork Therapist
I live in Ibiza, where I offer individual Therapy sessions from a Somatic and Relational approach, and Rebirthing Breathing Therapy. I began my journey as a therapist in search of my well-being from a very young age. I inquired into my self-knowledge through meditation, process work, and nonviolent communication.
My interest in understanding the human psyche led me to train as a Transpersonal Therapist (Madrid 2011-2012), Rebirthing Breathwork Therapist (Barcelona/Brazil 2013-2015) and as a Body-oriented Psychotherapist in Core Energetics (Holland 2016-2020).
I am currently training in the Neuro-Affective Relational Model (NARM), Attachment Theory and Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB D.Siegel) in search of a neuroscientific therapeutic approach that responds to my concerns to learn to self-regulate the nervous system and feel safe in the body in a world that sometimes felt emotionally overwhelming. Interpersonal approaches to emotion regulation have radically reoriented my therapeutic work to address the psychosomatic dynamics of attachment in a relational context.
I offer clients a safe and trusting space to explore themselves and find a compassionate, non-judgmental look at the internal dynamics we have built to survive to this day. I accompany you to become aware of the mechanisms that hide the true desire to live and I invite you to experience in the body the possibilities of making new decisions that complete us emotionally in the present. Having a new lived bodily experience is key to anchoring emotional self-regulation, and thus beginning to create a new neural path that repairs in the present old emotional experiences that were incomplete in the past.
