” The primary nature of every human being is to be open to life and love” – Alexander Lowen
Somesh Valentino Curti (NIP and EuroPsy Psychologist) and Tessa Nagtegaal (Psychologist and Relaxation Therapist) are two English speaking Psychologists offering therapy sessions of Emotional Release in Amsterdam and abroad. We help you to express emotions and boost empowerment and growth, using a method that we developed over many years of experience in the field of body-oriented psychology.
During these sessions we guide you to become more aware of the sensations and emotions at the core of your issue, to open up to these feelings and to express them in a dynamic and direct way. The goal is to help you to fully meet your deep emotions and experience a possible release, in order to move from a position of feeling stuck and suffering to a position of freedom.
These sessions are ideal if you feel…
- Closed, unhappy or depressed and are looking for feeling open and light again
- Anxious, afraid and stressed and are looking to feel relaxed and more peaceful
- Alone and isolated and are looking to feel connected with yourself and others
- Confused and unsatisfied with yourself and/or your relationships and are looking for a way to feel fulfilled
- Angry or enraged and would like to find a healthy outlet for these feelings
- Ashamed and inhibited and are looking to be really yourself
Maybe you already feel good and happy but are looking for new experiences that can enrich your life and open you up even more: we offer you tools like in an emotional gym, in which you can exercise your capacity to feel and enlarge that capacity to appreciate yourself and your life even more!
How does it work?
At the beginning of the session we will have a conversation in which you can explain us about the emotional, physical, situational or psychological issue you want to work on. Then, we focus on creating a “tailor made” process (about one hour) in which we integrate various body-oriented exercises according to your needs. For example : Voice-liberation, Screaming, Body-shaking, Bioenergetics, Focusing, Relaxation and Breathing Exercises, Guided Meditations. Our work is to support you in your process of free expression in a safe environment.

How are individual sessions different from Group sessions?
During individual sessions you can focus more precisely on your own emotion, situation or sensation that you need help for than during a group session. We will be there to guide you step-by-step in order for you to have new understandings and emotional opening about the topic which you want to work on and, ultimately, to free yourself from what blocks you.
