Janice Brieva, CBT
Certified Bioenergetics Therapist
Bogota, Colombia

I believe in using the powerful mind-body connection to effectively identify and heal shame and trauma using the integrated approach of Bioenergetics Psychology and Therapy.  Combining linguistic and somatic approaches with knowledge of how they reside in the body’s nervous system, shame and trauma can be identified, located and more gently released. By addressing disturbances in breathing and chronic muscular tension I can help people to become aware of their emotional issues on a somatic level. By addressing shame and trauma at a cognitive, emotional, physical and spiritual level,  we can enhance the ability to experience pleasure. This results in an improved connection with oneself and with others.

Creo en el uso de la poderosa conexión mente-cuerpo para identificar y curar de manera efectiva la vergüenza y el trauma utilizando el enfoque integrado de la psicología y la terapia bioenergética. Combinando enfoques lingüísticos y somáticos con el conocimiento de cómo residen en el sistema nervioso del cuerpo, la vergüenza y el trauma pueden identificarse, ubicarse y liberarse con mayor suavidad. Al abordar las alteraciones en la respiración y la tensión muscular crónica, puedo ayudar a las personas a tomar conciencia de sus problemas emocionales a nivel somático. Al abordar la vergüenza y el trauma a nivel cognitivo, emocional, físico y espiritual, podemos mejorar la capacidad de experimentar placer. Esto se traduce en una mejor conexión con uno mismo y con los demás
