We are sexual beings, sexed and erotics. Would it be for a reproductive objective and/or playfulness, sexual life and affective life are inseparable. As a clinical sexologist I assess and treat the persons who are seeking counseling within their whole dimensions with an added value: the sexual sphere.

Eye Movement Integration
EMI has its place within the sexual counseling sphere. In my practice I used it in different areas such as: sexual abuse, cyber sexual addiction, exhibitionism, compulsive sexual behaviour, miscarriage… Some of the clients were suffering from post-traumatic syndrome and others were under a Posteiori syndrome from a negative event, linked to the presented problem.*
Type of difficulties: “ …any experience that leaves an imprint which generates recurrent and negative effects on one or more levels: cognitive, emotional and sensory”.* Here, the term trauma benefits from a broad definition.
Knowing how to draw is not a prerequisite
Usually I use the structure of the phenomenological method linked to art-therapy. I may, as an example, with scribbles exercises bring you to create a visual phenomenon closed eyes. Then the jump from the known to the unknown has just begun. My main work is to guide you through an intuitive path which enhance receptivity and expression. Sexuality has a special link to body awareness and the use of art in sex-therapy can facilitate the access to it.
Type of difficulties: Inadequate body image, sexual abuse, gender identity trouble, any conflictual situation or problem where the metaphoric language and the communication through images is the privileged tool.
