Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Using cognitive behavioral therapy, we will first focus on several specific situations, in the present, and we will observe the thoughts, the feelings and the behaviours that you apply to adapt yourself to these situations.
Then we will study how you could change your positioning to rediscover freedom of thought or action and which aspects might need an acceptation or a healing process.
If you are struggling with psychological suffering, you may experience several symptoms personally or with people in your environment. At this point, psychotherapy may help. The duration of a cognitive behavioural therapy varies depending on your needs.
When we solicit the supplemental health insurance, we use various diagnoses (for the communication between different health professionals) to define how to help the person at best. In the list below, I specify several fields in which you may recognise yourself.
I regularly have sessions with people suffering from:
- Anxiety disorders:panic attacks, agoraphobia, specific phobia, social phobia, obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD), post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), generalised anxiety.
- Mood disorders:depressive episodes, recurrent/chronic depression

“Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional. Say you’re running and you think, ‘Man, this hurts, I can’t take it anymore. The ‘hurt’ part is an unavoidable reality, but whether or not you can stand anymore is up to the runner himself.” Haruki Murakami, “What I talk about when I talk about running”
“Even if you managed to escape from one cage, weren’t you just in another, larger one?” Haruki Murakami, 1Q84.
