A Body-Mind Approach to Depth Work & Process Facilitation Since 2004.
What Is PsychoEnergetics?
PSEN combines a study of the ‘psyche’ and its depths, with a study of the body’s ‘energy’ and intelligence.
Practicing depth work and process facilitation, we use the practitioner’s enlivened and engaged body and mind to assist the client with their own growth and development.
Our training programs in the US and Europe create a dynamic and empowering support environment that values true wisdom, authenticity as human beings, and makes learning together genuine, worthwhile and fun.
The Value of Depth Work.
One of the more complex and challenging dilemmas of being human is that we cannot solve our current problems from the same level of conscious that created them in the first place. But this doesn’t stop us from trying. Depth work is intended to shift one’s point of view and level of awareness beyond the current lens we typically use to perceive our lives. It requires a more ‘non-linear’ approach, one where we drop further into our interior spaces, using the felt sense of our bodies to open our minds to places we have yet to see clearly, or at all.
PSEN PROCESS TEACHINGS
These teachings are at the center of our PSEN Depth Work. They show us how to facilitate the process of awakening, and to become more aware of ourselves and our world.
THE NINE PSEN CORE VALUES
Our core values reflect the aspects which deepen our capacity to become more functional and more compassionate human beings.
The Art of Process Facilitation.
As process facilitators, we track and follow a process that is unfolding over time, before we make any attempts to intervene upon it. We do not direct or take over another’s experience, but instead, we profoundly accompany another to where they are, especially where they cannot accept themselves or their reality.
We also help to guide people to go where they have not yet gone, to where they have been unable or unwilling to go, without forcing them to do so, and without allowing them to remain the same – that is the art of facilitation.

Why People Pursue Learning in Training Groups
MOST PEOPLE LEARN BEST IN GROUPS. They can learn to see themselves better through the eyes and care of attentive others, people who are active witnesses, willing to accompany a person where ever they need to go, without being attached to any particular outcomes.
Most people will initially find groups to feel rather threatening to one’s sense of self. However, in the end, it is through the very presence of the group that one can learn to shape their identity and strengthen their sense of self, in new and larger ways – that are simply not possible in one-to one settings.
Once trainees in groups begin to form attachments with one another, they become better able to learn and better able to love, because of the collective care that comes towards them, from the embodied presence of the group.
In our group trainings, we are always asking the question, “What can happen here, that is unlikely to happen anywhere else in your life right now?” This becomes a guiding and highly informative question to uphold in each of our training days.

This training helped me to grow bit by bit own my authentic power, becoming more of my true self in the softest and kindest way I could imagine. Being held in compassion and kindness in PSEN depth work was especially what I needed, and it is the reason why I could allow my self to learn and grow the way I did. I am extremely grateful to the team, to the work and my wonderful friends. We did it all together.

“PSEN has enriched my daily life as well my professional life! The feedback from the peers in my group touches my heart supports me in what I´m doing. I´m still feeling much more potential inside of me that is waiting for being discovered.
This change would not have been happened alone at home – the support and challenges of such an incredible group of people, of which I am part of, with all these cultural influences from different countries, has allowed my changes to happen! My heart is full of gratitude.

“Becoming an Embodied & Active Presence.”
- One of the key features of our clinical development is the ability to become enlivened and active witnesses to another person’s lived experiences.
- Our ability to hold another person with our bodies and in our minds provides a very potent resource, one that can meet someone right where they are (Attunement), and also help guide them towards where they have yet to go (Differentiation).
- We practice felt exchanges with our clients (Present Moment Experiences), something more than just words – that opens a person up to new ways of seeing the world (Accepting What Is), and creates new possibilities for encounters that would simply not occur to them otherwise, on their own.
