Denis CASARSA, author, hypnotherapist, neurolinguistic psychotherapist
Following a very serious traffic accident and the resulting intense physical pain, I began a deep introspection through a Jungian analytic psychotherapy. The near-death experiences and psychic phenomena which I experienced, led me to become extensively interested in the human psyche and psychology. In 1995, I began my professional training with a certification in Clinical Hypnosis and Ericksonian Hypnotherapy at the Esalen Institute in California, along with the general psychology courses I took at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland.
During 1996 and 1997, driven by a broad and inclusive vision of the psyche, I was certified in Transpersonal Studies at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (Sofia University) in Palo Alto. I then continued my professional training through a new training, in Brief Therapies and Clinical Hypnosis, at the Institute of Psychosomatic Medicine of Lilles, in France, while gradually starting my professional practice as a therapist in Switzerland.
The introspection initiated by Jungian psychotherapy and expanding interests also led me to become interested and to practice Eastern meditation techniques, Transcendental Meditation and Vipassana Meditation of the Buddha’s teachings, while enriching my theoretical and practical understanding with a study of the inner science of the mind and phenomena of the Indo-Tibetan traditions, over ten years.
