After 30 years in practice, I recognize that many so called psychological diagnosis are often biological imbalances because of unresolved traumatic experiences from our childhood. This has been verified by research as almost universal. And BTW, this has been known for centuries; children are very delicate and so there are unresolved biological/psychological blocks that need resolution or we find ourselves being 'driven' by behaviors that are our body's attempts to compensate for the unresolved overload we are carrying. This is called Compensation in the stress theory to Dr. Hans Selye; the body's attempt to 'compensate' for the overload that we are carrying around within us. And Decompensation is what happens when the body can no longer compensate when health becomes negatively affected.
These automatic and mechanical compensatory mechanisms are well completely known but honestly not well understood. I was introduced to with from a very practical biological -psychological model presented in 1970 at the Institute of Applied Psychology in Santiago, Chile. These organic compensatory behaviors include, in increasing degrees, panic, phobic tendencies, illness, over-exertion (or called hyperactivity), over-intake on many levels (foods, ideas, material goods, etc) and so on.
By helping your Central Nervous System re-normalize 'itself', since it's very design is to self-heal (or now called neuro-plasticity) MOST biological/psychological imbalances are resolved to a significant degree. But most therapy is still talk based and does not know how to reach the aspects of the brain that can makes the organic changes that are completely possible. So most clients end up having to learn to 'work around' their problem rather than heal it.
When healing happens, it allows you to fully engage in your life rather than having to deal with the suffering which prevents a seen of resilience, what life is all about. Many of my clients find that my work helps them more fully benefit from other therapies they are involved in as well, get more from the therapeutic interaction. Why do have to live with a condition rather than RESOLVE it?
I also recognize that all humans have blind spots in their process which prevent us from seeing ourselves more objectively, as 'others' see us. My training is unique in that I have been trained in an approach to for precisely naming, and then detaching from behaviors that are the result of childhood patterns that began during intense experiences that the child could not deal with at that time. These survival patterns are cyclical, predictable, and can be detached from, once we get some assistance naming and then learning to watch the predictable pattern. Once we get to know these patterns, life does change for the better. I have a very good track record with my clients.
My style is non-aggressive and gentle, as we do not need more aggression than we have already had to deal with. I remember a therapist asking my why I had decided not to work with him and I replied, "Because you acted like you were going to be tough with me, and although I can use honest and direct, aggressive has never made things better for me. It never worked before and so why would it now". I am an advocate for your process; we are in a partnership that focuses on your happiness. You will feel that I am in your corner, not on the other side of the ring ready to pounce on you.
After years of working with clients, I realize that each of us have a natural healing potential within us now called neuorplasticity and called revitailzation in Oriental Medicine. This needs only to be evoked in a loving and kind relationship, which I offer.
Central to my work is the ability to train your Nervous System to recognize that it produces its own suffering states, in physics called perturbation. If you know how to use this information about that the Nervous System is doing, you can evoke a healing potential that is in built in human beings.
