Processing experiences of abuse
Have you experienced emotional, physical or sexual abuse and are you looking for ways to get back to being yourself and regain the ability to lead a self-determined life?
When someone experiences abuse, they often split off parts of their sensations and disappear within themselves, in order to avoid being fully exposed to what is happening from the outside. Nonetheless, these experiences become deeply engrained in a person and continue to affect their life.
I can accompany you in processing your experience of abuse and finding ways to recover your full self – to trust your emotions again and regain access to your full strength.
We cannot undo your history, but we can change how it affects your life today: I can support you as you learn to accept what has happened and to use what you have learnt from it as a source of strength. In doing so you will be able to look towards the future and lead the life you want, despite and by building on your past.
Teacher, age 59.
I came to Stella's Grinberg center through a recommendation while staying for a week in Berlin. I immediately experienced a full sense of trust, I felt safe, could talk about my issues, and could fully go into the treatment.
A wealth of empathy, attention, care and competence guided me through my inner and outer process.
Through repeated, severe abuse and assault during my childhood, more and more psychological blockages have been showing up in my daily life over the past 10 years, which have been a great burden for me. Many years ago I already did a 6 year psychoanalysis to try to work through these issues.
Stella works on a totally different level with the Grinberg Method: the mind and body were activated, and through her trustworthy and secure guidance I could finally again feel and let go of my old anger, my pain, my mourning, my shame…
She guided me to take dignity from the everything that I tolerated, endured, and carried through all of those years.
In this one week in Berlin, I did sessions on 4 days with Stella. I experienced the closeness of the sessions as very positive. I was totally into the process and could pick up right where we left off in the next appointment.
I experienced an extremely intensive, effective and sustainable set of treatments. I can still feel the freeing feeling – now 13 months after the treatment – and have it still close in my memory. Thank you, Stella!
