Maria Teresa Capasso
There are challenging moments in our lives when we need guidance to make sense of what is happening to us. Therapy can help promoting self-awareness, which leads to the capacity for better relationships, both personally and professionally. You'll find alternative perspectives, new possibilities and an enhanced sense of strength and wellbeing.
Most important for me is a good therapeutic relationship, which is the necessary basis for the process to be successful
My training ranges from dance, acting and body languages.
My education includes psychology seen as a means to study the interweaving of problems, and the search for Their solutions, Analyzed in the light of the phenomenologist of psychology and neurosciences.
I feel the need to create a common space, a bridge connecting the theoretical level with the putting on stage of the "living" body, That is the body experienced as "voice", "thought" and "emotion" .
Through dance-theater as a means of rehabilitation and self awareness, the opportunity is created to have a variety of experiences made possible through a space Which is emotional and physical at the same time.
My experience in this connection comprises putting on stage, creating short films, conducting experiential groups in the field of autogenic training, self-awareness and body perception. I enriched my education through in course for Yoga teachers and practical for several years Hatha yoga as exercise of balance and stability of body.
