Tipi is a French research program developed by Luc Nicon, a pedagogy researcher and expert in behavioral communication.
This process for emotional regulation is very efficient to resolve conditions such as depression, PTSD, fear, anxiety, anger and grief, among others (see a list of emotional difficulties).

Luc’s studies and his last two books revolutionized our knowledge of the origin of our disruptive emotional patterns and long lasting traumas, especially regarding the importance of the pre-natal and birth periods, and the consequences of loss of consciousness during those times (and after).

Luc Nicon is recognized all across Europe for having been able to isolate through research a natural ability present in all of us, that allows re-experiencing through sensations (using the sensory memory) the origin of our emotional difficulties to regulate them permanently.
Basically a natural ability for Self Emotional regulation.

Based on this discovery, he designed the “Tipi technique” that brings permanent resolution to traumas and disruptive emotional patterns; the technique can be used anytime — at the moment they are happening or afterward during a therapy or coaching session for example.

 

We all possess a natural ability to self-regulate our emotions…

Hi everyone
I'm so thankful to have met and worked with all of you.
I did my first tipi session with a client this morning, It went incredibly well.
She was successful immediately.
I'm following up with her next week.
I did my SECOND SESSION THIS AFTERNOON!!!! with a member of the SFPD!
He was also successful immediately! He told me that his anger issues felt like they subsided right away. I'm following up with him next week too.
He was "floored" (his words) and said that this could be useful in police work. Duh! Hahahaha

I did 2 Tipi sessions today!!
Yesterday helped so much! I felt totally prepared to move my first client through the process. And the second session with a different client was too easy!!
THANK YOU!! It feels so good to help my clients so quickly. I'm so excited about this work.

As a psychotherapist I am always looking for tools to assist my clients in self-care. Tipi is a wonderful way clients can use their own inner resources to address the issues that block them from enjoying their lives. Immediately following the Tipi training I was able to apply Tipi in my practice. My clients have been amazed with the positive results. And, personally I have been able to enjoy the benefits of tipi in relieving stress in my life. I am an avid advocate for the healing Tipi provides.

Thank you sooo much for making time for Mike yesterday at such short notice. His first comment today: “I think Tipi worked because Paul was saying something about me and I just said sure, and I didn’t think much more about it.” ?
Usually that lingers in him and escalates to no end!
So THANK YOU!

My experience with Tipi was amazing, life changing.
I considered trying out Tipi to work through a fear that had been affecting my life and causing anxiety for years and years. I had my first session over two weeks ago, and in one session, the fear has gone away and I have not had anxiety for something in relation to that situation since the session. I am blown away by the technique and it gave me a lot of insight about how emotions can be worked through.

Giovanna    13 March 2016    San Francisco, USA   

The Tipi Professional Training was intense, effective and very applicable to the work I do professionally and in the community. My clients and program participants have benefitted from the engagement with this technique. I recommend this training to all mental health and addiction clinicians and peer professionals. I am looking forward to my advanced training.

"I've had a bridge phobia for over 7 years. One session of Tipi with Cedric made it so that I was able to drive over the bridge for the first time in years, without panic. I'm very grateful and believe Tipi is a quick and effective way to treat debilitating anxiety and other things. Thank you, Cedric!"

When I first heard about Tipi and the possibility of directly addressing my unconscious fears, I immediately thought of one of my big ones—fear of drowning. I could swim, but I never felt comfortable in water whether it was shallow or deep, in a warm pool or a placid river. I had always loved beaches and boat trips but could never fully enjoy them because of a deep feeling of unease that dampened my enjoyment. I had also had many experiences where I just froze up and forgot to use my swimming skill. So I did my first Tipi on my fear of drowning. I was surprised at how simple the process was. We didn’t go over my history with this fear or analyze my feelings. I simply went along with the process and allowed myself to release my fearful emotions. Immediately after doing the process, I knew deep down that it had worked. I told everyone that I had dissolved my fear in water and would now be able to engage in swimming, snorkeling and boating and be able to fully enjoy it. This I truly believed even though I would not have an opportunity to confirm it for two months when I had a trip planned for Hawaii where I would swim and snorkel in the ocean. I went on the trip with full confidence that I would find a new experience in the ocean. Needless to say, I had a great vacation, spent time swimming and snorkeling everyday, and fully enjoyed water activities without fear.

As if that wasn’t enough, I have also found that several other fears had been dissolved—fear of heights, dark close spaces, etc. I went on to learn how to do self-Tipi and have addressed other unconscious fears on my own. Over the course of my life, I have learned many helpful self-help skills. Practicing Tipi has given me something quite different from my other skills and has changed my life.

"I've explored and experienced a range of therapies and therapeutic modalities over the decades. Some analytical, some somatic based. While at first enquiry Tipi may similar to other certain methods, upon experience with it, I discovered it to be quite distinct, as a technique. And, furthermore, outstandingly effective for the specific 'issues' I have applied the Tipi technique to. What has also impressed me tremendously is the fact that one is not left dependent upon visiting a Tipi Specialist time and time again, but can be taught to use the technique 'autonomously'... it is a powerful tool for personal development and wellbeing. I wish I had been able to learn it while in my youth... it is incredibly empowering." –

I had one tipi session with Cedric for an issue that had been bothering me for several months. He was clear in his explanations of the process, I felt totally comfortable working with him, and i found immediate relief from the work we did. The issue, and the accompanying anxiety, feel totally resolved to this day. I have recommended the work to several people since my session and will absolutely continue to.

Thanks!

After attending the free Tipi workshop I started to use it in my day to day life and have been happily surprised by the results. I have been able to get rid of stress and triggers when interacting with my family which before the Tipi training was usually a painful ordeal. I strongly believe that everyone should learn the Tipi method and use it as a valuable tool part of their coping mechanisms.

Dmitry Zotman    11 March 2014   

"TIPI was my last resort. I felt imprisoned by my fear until I met Cedric and his knowledge of TIPI.
Even though it was not easy to make these kinds of confessions as they are really private, I told him about my fear and some details about it.
He certainly listened to me and I congratulate him for his sensitivity.
Since our meeting, Cedric gave me back the freedom I lost 20 years ago.
The only regret I have today is that I wish I knew TIPI and Cedric before.
I would highly recommend Cedric as he is a very understanding therapist, and he basically just changed my life in a better way.
You can trust me, it’s worth it. "

"Simply put, Tipi has changed my life...
Because of its simple yet effective sensory evoking techniques, I was able to awake to my true self through my physical body, and live my life at the very present moment.
Difficult initially, yet by my desire of growing and by the powerful and gentle teaching from a Tipi specialist, and by working with the Tipi community, I am able to resolve my past conditioning, and enjoy a much fulfilled life."
