PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Od roku 2015 vyvíjím „Voitopi Free Expression PhotoTherapy Method (VOFRE PhotoTherapy)“ — metodu svobodného vyjádření foceného obsahující prvky hry, meditace, práce s tělem, svobodného projevu, představovosti a vědomé opravdovosti. V procesu Free Expression získává každý člověk odvahu a sílu být tím, kým skutečně je. Přístup je nehodnotící, neposuzující a podporující. Přínosem VOFRE PhotoTherapy je pro foceného (dospělého) podpora sebedůvěry-víry v sebe a svůj spontánní projev, regenerace, psychická relaxace, potvrzení jedinečnosti, prostor a čas pro sebevyjádření, možnost nalezení vlastní podstaty, bezpodmínečného sebepřijetí. U dětí metoda podporuje svobodný projev, sebedůvěru, fantazii a soustředění. Výsledkem každého jednotlivého procesu na míru jedinci jsou fotografie přinášející do života snovost, pozitivní energii a lásku.
