Narrative therapy

This approach developed in Australia and New Zealand by Michael White and David Epston, seeks to be a respectful non- blaming approach, which centers people as the experts in their own lives. It views problems as separate from people and assumes people have many competencies, skills and abilities that, when connected with their values, commitments and beliefs, will assist them in reducing the influence of problems and re- becoming authors of their own lives.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

This powerful therapeutic and self-development methodology was created in the early 1970’s by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. It is the science of subjective experience (“no one perceives the world objectively, but through the filters of their personal experiences and learnings, coded in their brains”) . Some of those “learned programs” (behavioral patterns, beliefs) are enhancing, others are limiting. Decoding verbal and non verbal “language” helps to achieve maximum results in minimum time. Unlike most therapeutic approaches, NLP was not born from studying pathology but from modeling the “excellence” of well known psychotherapists, namely Fritz Pearls, Milton Erickson, Virginia Satir. NLP can help you clear the past, break old patterns, reframe inner resistances, transform your dreams into specific achievable outcomes, enhance your relational skills and communication (with others and self). The “echology check” takes care of balance and consequences before any important change. NLP
