Congratulations on addressing your therapeutic concerns. Taking this first step often is a powerful journey toward healing. it is my belief the relationship you have with your therapist is crucial to the rapid resolution of issues. I believe therapy should be a rewarding, hopeful and, whenever possible, brief process. A client's motivation to change and willingness to work is crucial to success. My belief is the combination of insight followed by action is the surest pathway to change. My practice is addressing the barriers clients perceive that stop them from living the life they imagine possible.
These issues can be matters of transition from one phase of life to another, the end of a relationship, wrestling one form or another of out of control behavior, such as substance misuse, or coping with feelings of depression, anxiety, or other manifestations of our psyche calling for help.
I am trained in Trauma Resolution through Hypnosis and EMDR and many of the Expressive Therapies. These modalities are effective and gentle methods of dealing with trauma, anxiety and depression as well as addressing addictions and other life issues. Be prepared to be challenged in new and possibly surprising ways.
Psychodrama is a power modality that can be best explained as a "show me" in addition to a "tell me" methodology that links head and heart. Paul is the only certified Trainer of Psychodrama in San Diego County. He offers training for mental health professionals, supervision and ongoing client groups.
The Expressive Therapies offer an opportunity to access unconscious information and bring information into the therapeutic space for transformation. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Hypnotherapy are an adjunct that accelerates the ability to change behavior s and heal from trauma.
