Frequently Asked Questions
The Zensitively method is fundamentally different from other approaches to counselling and therapy, since it is not primarily based on conventional psychotherapy, but on existential philosophy, sociology, and awareness-based methods of self-development.
At its heart lies the fundamental idea of radical self-acceptance. Our practise is informed by direct perception, by learning to attune one’s consciousness to phenomena, instead of relying on psychological theory and dogma. This makes for a very peaceful way of working and allows both clients and counsellors to verify the truth of everything that they communicate to each other.
What makes our approach most exceptional is that our top priority is real, authentic dialogue, dialogue that is not merely intellectual debate, but involves one's whole being and makes transformational experiences possible through communication.
The lead instructor of the program is the founder and CEO of Zensitively, Nazım Kılıç MSc Psy.
Kılıç is a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist, philosopher, consciousness development teacher and composer. He adapted and extended the existential philosophy and consciousness development methods of the philosopher Gabriel Raam into the therapeutic self-development.
Gabriel Raam is a philosopher, former lecturer and expert for non-verbal communication. He studied theatre, education, and behavioural sciences and has been involved in the research, participation, and study of internal workgroups as well as in learning methods for expanding and developing the field of consciousness for many decades.
He has published over 10 books internationally (mostly in Hebrew) on inner work, consciousness, body language and communication.
Unknown to the large population, his radical, existential philosophy is one of the most important influences on human life in the 21st century.
HSP counsellors trained in the Zensitively approach draw on both a connection with their own inner selves and a profound, precise knowledge of the human psyche. While they maintain a professional distance and utilise well-grounded methods, these complementary strengths allow them to support their clients from a place of deep, authentic, human empathy.
Our training differs from other counselling courses: not only in its content and approach, but also in how it is structured and in the personal guidance we offer. During the course, we will provide all participants with support to help them become independent practitioners, including advice on running a practice, managing finances and maintaining a work-life balance.
Another unique advantage of the course is that participants will gain first-hand experience of the transformative effects of the Zensitively method.
The training is designed for anyone who is seriously interested in working with highly sensitive people in an empathetic, professional and well-grounded way.
People from the healing professions (such as medicine and psychology) and interested laypeople are equally welcome to join us. It does not matter whether the participant is already involved in professional practice and regards the training as a supplemental professional qualification or views the course as the first step towards a career in counselling.
