CÉCILIA COMMO 

Couple Therapist

  Sex Therapist   

Psychoanalyst 

In parallel with my university training in Psychology (University of Paris Descartes, Paris V), I undertook psychoanalytical training in 1995, with Dr Jean Begoin (neuropsychiatrist and psychoanalyst, member of the Société Psychanalytique de Paris, known for having contributed to the introduction of Kleinian thought in France).

Apart from the classical psychoanalytic cure, I trained in the United States in shorter therapeutic treatments of psychoanalytic orientation such as brief psychoanalytic psychotherapy and so-called focal psychotherapy (designed by Michael Balint, a student of Sandor Ferenczi.)

I am certified sexologist in Functional Clinical Sexology but I am also inspired by sexoanalysis (therapy applied to sexual disorders, forged by Claude Crépault) which constitutes a psychoanalytical approach in clinical sexology.

This study of the sexual unconscious (and its clinical applications) allows us to discover the sexual conflicts and unconscious anxieties that the sexual disorder carries.

 

Psychoanalytic theory is one of the natural sources of knowledge in sexology and it has made the Western world aware of the reality of a sexual world: "Psychoanalysis can be considered as a model of sexological knowledge" (Georges Abraham - "Psychoanalysis and sexological therapies" 1978).

I was also interested in the Rogerian method (by Carl Rogers), also called "Person Centred Approach" and its impact on Self-esteem, an inner attitude at the core of interpersonal relationships on which I have worked a lot.

As a couple-oriented psychoanalyst and sexologist, I work more widely on sexual desire, eroticism in " long-term " relationships but also on dysfunctional behaviours within a couple relationship (manipulation, humiliation, aggressiveness of one of the spouses, etc...) and on sexual dependencies (addiction to cybersex, addiction to prostitution, etc...).

I also focus on the major upheavals faced by couples (stepfamilies, infidelities, gradual decline of the conjugal bond, loss of erotic desire or absence of sexual libido,...) but also on issues linked to the difficulty that some people encounter in establishing an emotional relationship with others.



After living and working in the USA (Seattle), I set up an online consultation service (by video) for expatriates or people living far from my office in Paris.

 

Whether in my office or through video, it is with empathy and a lot of benevolence that I handle the therapeutic relationship that is established with the person who entrusts me his difficulties and wounds, because, as Serge Tisseron evokes, "the therapist who shows an empathic attitude allows a situation to be set up in which his patient begins to give himself representations of his past traumas without fear of finding himself there alone".

 

My clinical priority? Support the human being in search of change or suffering and tell him that by joining his humanity with mine, he is no longer alone.
