« When you do something from your soul,
you feel a river moving in you, joy »
Core Energetics is a powerful form of body
psychotherapy oriented to personal growth and takes into account all
aspects of being: body, mind, spirit, emotions, will.
Core Energetics uses breathing techniques, body
movement and interpersonal relationships, as well as the use of the
voice to create consciousness of the true self.
It allows to heal old wounds, to express the best of
their potential, to enjoy life, to become aware of the ways in which
one is prevented from living a deeply fulfilling life; for example,
blocking energy and emotions in some parts of the body. By learning
how to move the energy into the body, you learn to free emotions and
get in touch with all feelings, becoming more alive, powerful,
Core Energetics is an efficient, playful, creative
and fun way that, by supporting those involved, is able to cope with
life situations and fully bring to light its qualities, dynamism and
the joy of its vital energy!
As children, we've all bared a piece of us. We have
hidden or repressed certain feelings - such as hatred or love,
anger, badness - because we realized that by expressing them we
would end up in trouble: we felt that we would not get the needed
love, care or protection expressing ourselves completely. We have
therefore chosen to limit our being in order to preserve
relationships with the people we loved and depend upon. Probably at
the moment it was the right decision. But today, if we continue to
suppress parts of us as we did as children, we limit our strength
and vitality to our present life. We compromise the intense
pleasure, the natural wishes, and the joy that we could live by
adults. So the first step in the Core Energetics process is to
confront the wounds of childhood and learn to make new choices,
according to our real needs. Now that we no longer depend on our
parents or those who took care of us, we no longer have to live only
with compromises: we can learn to be fully ourselves, to express
ourselves, to listen and to let our impulses flow, provided that
this is our choice.
Core Energetics is a creative act that transforms the
body, emotions and spirit, allowing the energy to flow and the
consciousness to evolve. It brings every person into contact with
the beauty and dignity of the true self. It allows living deeper,
honest, and courageous relationships with all the people around us
(family, friends, lovers).
John Pierrakos created Core Energetics in the
'40s. Pierrakos graduated in New York as a psychiatrist and
studied with Wilhelm Reich. With another Reich’s student,
Alexander Lowen, he developed Bio-Energetics using the concept
of energy and the defensive character structures of Reich. In
1964, he met Eva Broch, leader of the "Path". With her
influence, Pierrakos created Core Energetics, shifting his
attention from the analysis of defenses, to the development of
creativity and spiritual self (the Core, or nucleus). This
change is also the main difference between Core Energetics and
other psychological methods of personal growth: while psychology
focuses on the diseased parts of the self, Core Energetics does
not refer to the pathology, but to the healthy and vital core of
Why I chose this job:
I love people. I like to welcome them, help them in
personal growth, follows their steps, and rejoice with their
I love from the heart, with care and love.
My name is Silvia Rissone Gatti, and I was born and
raised in Lugano. I started a path of personal growth in 2005. In
2010 I came across Core Energetics and I felt this was my way, so in
2013 I enrolled at
of Core Energetics
and I graduated as "Core Energetics Body
Psychotherapist" on June 10, 2017.
The following year I took the “Post Graduate Training”, again in
Holland, and at the same time I started as assistant in the Italian
Core Energetics Institute.
I work with clients since June 2015.
Since I met Core I feel alive, strong, beautiful. In
my heart there is enthusiasm, joy, trust and faith. I have recovered
a lot of pieces of myself. I'm free to express all my colours. I'm
authentic, in my integrity.
Of course I'm aware that I still have a lot of work
to do. Sometimes I fall back into the same dynamics, but every time
I am able to evolve and observing my changes is wonderful.
I can deal with indulgence, ask for help if I need it
and stay on my legs. I gave voice to my wild side, to passion, to
I do not feel alone anymore (I've never been alone,
just I did not know) and I'm going to fully enjoy life that I love
To whom I address myself:
I work mainly with young people and adults who want
to overcome their fears, improve interpersonal relationships, family
life and free their creativity, but feel alone, insecure, and
experience conflicting relationships.
I offer private sessions where they can experience
different techniques to find stability, confidence and independence,
without any judgment.
Where I work:
- in 6962 Viganello-Lugano, Via alla Roggia 6, and
- in 8001 Zürich , Schoffelgasse 3
