Experience

I discovered few years ago how quickly the application of photography and visualization works in the process of healing. The images we take are actually snapshots of our inner deep. People say ‘you see what you are’.During cognitive sessions I encouraged the clients to take pictures or to make a short documentary in order to understand the past or subjective experience, and to integrate the missing link into their life story. The aesthetic quality of the final work is not important, what it is important is the honest involvement of the client. These visual stories turn out to be the visual anchors that will remind the client of their own goals in therapy.
