What is Therapeutic Photography?
It is using photography to heal the soul. Photography is an amazing therapeutic tool. First, seeing yourself through the eyes of someone else allows you to see yourself differently. The photographic session also offers the opportunity to see and discuss “reality”. As everything in your life is related to how you perceive, and as therapy first and foremost relies on understanding your problematic perception to allow you to make a change, photography offers a variety of ways to help you understand yourself and release fault beliefs that blurs your perception.
How is your therapeutic photography different from other therapies through photography?
The use of photography in therapy exists worldwide. One kind of therapy (the most known) is the use of pictures in the therapeutic process. Meaning, opening discussions around images (family pictures, old pictures, ...). The other kind of therapy through photography that can also be seen, is by inspiring the patient to create a photographic project.
My Therapeutic Photography is based on the photographic session itself, using the photographic session as a playground to analyze, understand, perceive and change reality.
