A few years ago my life finally fell apart. I couldn’t hold it together anymore. My search started and did not find it in regular care, I knew that for 25 years; I must stay away from there.
Studying abroad (mostly online), taking therapy in the US, everything I learned I applied (and apply) to myself. I learn and experience one thing and that led to new questions and new studies. Books, a lot of books, but I experience everything myself.
Now I help people in my overcrowded practice with the Trauma Informed view of people and therapies and tools that are really effective and ensure everyone’s autonomy. I adapt to my clients, not the other way around. They don’t have to fit into my trick, I’ll make sure I learn what they need.
I am now the one who could have helped me 25 years ago. The knowledge was already there then, but it was not made available. Now it is there (unfortunately still hardly reimbursed), thanks to the Internet. We can find our own way and more and more therapists see the light that the way it is now not only does not work, but often causes more damage.
It revolves around the client and the connection between client and therapist. My person is an essential part of what I do, a person-to-person conversation. This is me, who are you?
