Therapeutic Approach

Chien has practiced extensively with various psychotherapeutic and body-mind healing methods, such as Somatic Experiencing (SE), Gestalt therapy, Jungian psychotherapy, psychodynamics, attachment theory, psychodrama, person-centered psychotherapy, mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR), Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), clinical hypnotherapy, yoga psychology, expressive arts therapy, dance movements therapy and more. She specializes in Somatic Experiencing utilizing hypnotherapeutic skills to access and relieves traumatic memories stuck in the nervous system. It’s effective for stress, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and physical symptoms associated with psychological states. 
 

Her therapeutic style is gentle yet precise, unconditional acceptance with attentive listening and understanding. She believes that the process of therapy is to assist clients to access their innate capacity of healing within their bodies and to help the psyche to return to its balanced state through trauma healing and psyche transformation. This is done by exploring various aspects of the psyche hidden in the unconscious to  discover and heal any unresolved issues, which could in turn facilitate a return to the authentic self within where one feels most like oneself — coming back home to the core of our beings. 
 

Chien offers psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing sessions (trauma healing work), hypnotherapy, as well as expressive arts and body movement workshops. Online sessions are also available globally. Chien is not taking clinets in ReAnkos currently, but serves in other location. Chien specializes in Somatic Experiencing, a body oriented psychothepy aimed to relieve trauma energy blocked in the body, effective for stress, anxiety, PTSD, physical symptoms related to psychological states.
