Through Writing Caen
A Caen (Calvados), Karine Tollemer, hypnotherapist, works on self-confidence and self-esteem with women. Very sensitive to this cause, she wanted to extend her commitment by organizing support groups to women in the grip. In these groups, no hypnotherapy, just women needing to get together to talk about the hold they are under.
The influence of his spouse, but not only
“Control can be acquired in all areas of life, it can be at work, by a colleague, a boss, a child who has become an adult, a parent or a friend,” explains Karine Tollemer. And of course, it can be in couple, it is more the object of my practice ”. To free the voices of these women, Karine extends her hand to them by welcoming them to Mai’be, at 82 Boulevard Dunois.
“I find it to be a form of violence that doesn’t get a lot of consideration and doesn’t get a lot of recognition. This form of emotional abuse leads to a lot of loneliness and can be accompanied by physical abuse. Each story is different, as Karine says:
I am brought to meet women who have no freedom on how they will spend their money or on their outings. Even if this violence is not visible to the naked eye, it is nonetheless important. Often, as they have never received any beatings, they do not understand that they are living, yet it is violence. They feel extremely alone and isolated in this deprivation of liberty.
Support groups are getting organized
This hold is established in particular on a ground of emotional dependence. With her support groups, Karine Tollemer wants to allow her isolated women to create links around them to get them out of this loneliness that gnaws at them. “Support groups are an opportunity to welcome women who do not have the means to come to the office, but who need to feel understood and heard”. These groups appear to be an alternative, a place where they can express their suffering and difficulties without judgment.
“Following a Facebook post, I felt a great demand and a lot of expectation. I am super motivated, and I have lots of ideas to develop this project ”. This professional, trained in hypnosis and NLP (neurolinguistic programming) at the Cassiopée Institute in Paris, hosted the first discussion group on Friday, November 26. The times of the next free gatherings have yet to be defined. The next one is in any case set for Wednesday, December 29 at 5 p.m.
