Julie J. Brousseau

THÉRAPEUTE ET FONDATRICE DU CTCFO

Elle a fondé le centre de thérapie pour couples et familles de l’Outaouais pour répondre aux divers besoins cliniques des couples et familles de la région. Elle est membre de l’Ordre des travailleurs sociaux et thérapeutes conjugaux et familiaux du Québec, à titre de Thérapeute conjugale et familiale. Elle détient aussi le permis de psychothérapeute émis par l’Ordre des psychologues du Québec. Elle œuvre depuis plus de 25 ans dans divers milieux reliés à la psychothérapie. Elle travaille en bureau privé depuis 2000, où 75% de sa clientèle sont des couples. Elle a offert des services de supervision au Service de counselling de l’Université d’Ottawa, ainsi qu’à l’Université St-Paul à Ottawa, puis au CTCFO.

« Dans ma pratique, l’approche Emotionally Focused Therapy – Approche centrée sur les émotions (EFT -Sue Johnson et Leslie Greenberg) et la théorie de l’attachement (Bowlby) s’articulent en avant-plan, particulièrement auprès des couples et familles. En toile de fond, je pratique selon l’approche humaniste/existentielle (Carl Rogers), centrée sur le client, qui détient en lui les ressources nécessaires au changement. Mon travail de psychothérapie vise à aider le client à accéder à son potentiel, à ses ressources et à découvrir les liens significatifs afin de procéder au changement souhaité. J’adhère indéniablement à une orientation phénoménologique (Edmund Husserl) dans ma pratique de la psychothérapie – base de la thérapie expérientielle, car elle permet de prendre en considération ce qui se présente à la conscience du client, à son vécu intérieur, à l’intentionnalité du client et de comprendre le phénomène vécu du client (pensées, émotions, sensations, réactions, tendances d’actions) sans jugement, dans sa pure expérience et d’en découvrir la signification, d’y donner un sens. Dans les relations interpersonnelles, cette orientation permet un échange respectueux du vécu des partenaires dénudé de conceptualisations ou d’idées préconçues, chacun dans le respect des caractéristiques de l’autre. »
