Body Psychotherapy

Body Psychotherapy

I have a bachelor degree and masters in Clinical Psychology and special training in body psychotherapy and trauma work. As a Psychotherapist I have been working with Core Energetics, an analytic body perspective, since 2007. During the sessions we will talk and bring awareness to relevant aspects of your life focusing on the issues you want to work on. However, different from other perspectives in psychotherapy, we will not limit ourselves just to the speech.

The session

During the sessions I’m interested in talking with you and I’m also very interested in what is happening to your body. In some sessions I’ll invite you to connect with your body and bring more depth to the subject we are discussing. It could be through body awareness, conscious breathing, stretching, touch, body movement and others. As a Core Energetics therapist, and based on new findings in neuroscience, I understand that there is a strong and important connection between body and the emotional/psychological aspects and that by working with both together we can achieve better and faster results.

What is Core Energetics?

Core Energetics is an integrative body psychotherapy that aims to help people express and live their full potential. Through integrating all aspects of life: body, emotions, thoughts and spirituality, Core Energetics is a powerful way to have a better life and to establish a more honest and meaningful relationships within yourself and others.

Fernando"I was very resistant to online therapy, I didn't believe it would work. So I decided to try it and check for myself. What really convinced me was when I became a client.

  • I had very low self-esteem and I was suffering with feelings of inadequacy. I enjoyed the grounding work we did, it helped me to come back into my body. It was interesting to notice that I could be carrying things in my body from years ago and I didn't realize. I feel like a different person now, I don't feel inadequate anymore. I feel much more connected with myself.

  • I was struck by who Fernando is as a person, I felt very safe. I just mentioned a few different things and he took all that and guided me through the process. It was really powerful to recognize that a lot of problems that I have had to do with this neglect with the pelvis. It was much more than I expected, I wasn't expecting any major healing.

T.R.E (Trauma and Tension Releasing Exercises)


According to Dr. David Berceli, TRE is a simple technique that uses exercises to release stress or tension from the body that accumulate from every day circumstances of life such as:

  immediate or prolonged stressful situations;

  traumatic life experiences (i.e., natural disasters, social or domestic violence, surgeries, accidents, etc).

TRE reactivates the body's innate ability to heal itself. After seven simple exercises we will activate self-controlled natural muscular shaking in the body that will release deep tensions associated to stress and several symptoms.

People who have practiced the technique regularly achieved significant improvements in symptoms associated with stress and PTSD such as headaches, tension, anxiety, panic attacks, difficulty to fall asleep and others.


Learn T.R.E today!

TRE was developed to allow people to use it without being with a therapist. Although it is not a substitute to therapy, it can promote great changes in your life improving your life quality and relationships. You can start learning as soon as possible through online coaching sessions.

In my experience, four sessions are enough for you to learn and feel confident to practice TRE by yourself. Once you have learned it, you can always write to me with questions and doubts about your practice. Contact me now!
