Stefano Massa

Psychoanalyst

I follow the Jungian analysis method and I use EMDR for anxiety, depression, PTSD and psycho-somatic symptoms. I analyze dreams and your unconscious to help you become the best version of yourself

About

I trained in Italy in the Jungian institute ATANOR and in the psychiatric hospital San Salvatore in L'Aquila. I traveled in many different countries before coming to Halle and I can understand very well the expat challenges and the various mindset of different cultures. I've worked in my private practice in Halle and Leipzig for 2 years doing online and one on one therapy. I have also trained in EMDR therapy in Italy following Shapiro's original method.

My Approach

My practice of psychoanalysis focuses on the individuation of the person, following Jung words, what we seek inside may reveal to us the "shadow" and is not yet known to us. Through this analysis we can elaborate together the archetypical symbols that we find along the way in unexpected places such as in our dreams, and discover the connection between the symbol and the so called "complex" which is rooted into the symbols. I also use the association test, to uncover more history of the complex and I promote the expression of the self through art, dance and music. I also analyze videos to underline micro facial expressions that are coming up during the sessions, that are associated with particular words. Recently I also became certified in EMDR, which is a psychotherapy approach that enables people to heal from the symptoms of severe emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of a psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.
