INSIGHT, School of Conseling BreathWork Mindfulness .
Web site: http://www.insightformazione.it
Born from the experience of Milena Screm, Counselor Supervisor and Trainer, for four decades the Insight School has been engaged in the research, design and promotion of qualified services concerning the development of the individual. We move on the basis of a holistic vision in order to integrate the bodily-emotional and cognitive-psychological resources.
An innovative synergy between the methods of traditional Counseling, based on the dynamics of relationship and communication, the approach that emphasizes the body-emotional skills, the BreathWork, and the scientific principles of modern Mindfulness.
Thus was born the Insight Body Mediation Counseling which differs from other types of Counseling, because it uses, in addition to verbal communication, also perceptive resources. Words, speech, have the mind as their main source; emotions and feelings are instead connected to corporeality.
The Insight Body Mediation Counseling therefore has as support the knowledge of the body and emotional dynamics; uses, in addition to words, other tools, such as breathing and body movement. The basis of the work is the knowledge of body language, emotional dynamics and authentic empathic listening, as well as knowledge of communication.
At Insight we train Counseling professionals who appreciate and teach the evolutionary power of mindful breathing.
