How I Work

I work with NARM Principles

What is NARM® Therapy?

NARM is an effective therapeutic modality developed by Dr. Lawrence Heller for treatment of developmental trauma.

The NARM approach integrates both top-down and bottom-up principles, meaning that it takes into account both the physiology and psychology of the client. NARM Therapy is a phenomenological model that supports reconnection between heart and mind, eliminating or reducing incongruences. This cultivates ease, vitality, decreases dysregulation and the need to disconnect from others.

Who benefits from NARM Therapy?

If you're tired of repeating the same patterns, feeling stuck in relationships, troubled by mood swings, angry at the world every day, distracted by endless tasks and commitments, anxiety of different kinds, or suffering from non-ending self-destructive patterns. If you answer to one or more of these ‘yes,’ then NARM® Therapy is for you.

What happens in NARM® Therapy?

NARM is a unique approach to treating childhood trauma that addresses both the biological dysregulation that occurs as a result of an overactive stress response system, and the distortions in our sense of self that develop in response to trauma. By addressing both of these areas, NARM provides a comprehensive approach to healing that can help people reclaim their lives after experiencing trauma.

NARM is NOT a goal-orinted model focused on fixing symptoms.

NARM is an inquiry-based model that supports connection to one self. The way it is done is to help clients to re-own the disowned, rejected and split-off parts of themselves that they don´t want to own. These disowned parts are often reffered to "Child Consiousness".

Healing occurs in recruiting the executive & resiliency brain systems to integrate with and balance the regulatory brain systems. This integrated brain process can be referred to as our “Embodied Adult Consciousness".

Moreover, in NARM® therapy, you can expect consent, curiosity, participation, psychoeducation, acceptance, structure, and transparency. All these principles combined will help to create a solid therapeutic foundation giving you the possibility of deepening relationship with yourself.
What can you expect from me?
I use the NARM approach, where I work simultaneously with the physiology and the psychology of my clients who have experienced developmental trauma, and focus on the interplay between issues of identity and the capacity for connection and self regulation.

I will always start the therapy with a clarifying question about “what you want for yourself”? From there, exploration begins. Exploration of things in the way and things in support of what you want.

In my practice, I use the following principles to build a safe environment for my client as well as focus on the progress.

My Organizing Principles

7 Pillars Of My Practice

You are in control, and we will not explore anything before you are ready. I may gently encourage you outside your comfort zone, but I will always respect your decision to proceed or not.

In my experience, curiosity is key to unlocking personal growth. I will ask questions and explore with you, while always respecting your boundaries.

Therapy is a process that requires both parties to be fully engaged. I will encourage you to be an active participant in your own healing. While I am there to support you, ultimately its´s you who has to take steps forward.

Every session will be focused on the present moment. While stories from your past may come up, it is how those stories are impacting you now that matters the most. We will be working with the past through the vehicle of the here-and-now to help you resolve them.

I will share psychological and/or neuroscientific information with you when it is relevant. This can help you gain a better understanding of your experiences and feel less alone.

I understand and respect that you developed certain coping mechanisms for a good reason. Even though they may not be helpful anymore, they have served you in the past. Understanding why you developed these coping strategies and how they served can help you develop more effective coping strategies for the future.

I will always be transparent with you about my process, and honest with you. If you want to know about my life, I am an open book. If you ask me for honest answer, direct feedback, I will provide it.
