|Dr Menis Yousry|
Dr Yousry is the founder and lead facilitator of the Essence Foundation. He worked as a Family & Systemic Psychotherapist and Psychologist and a supervisor for the British National Health Service for fifteen years. Over the last 20 years he has designed and facilitated personal development courses in 16 locations in Europe, USA, Latin America and the Middle East.
He used his professional experience and academic research to develop the Essence Process, a simple, sensitive and unique approach that transforms intellectual and emotional understanding into practical application to the day-to-day living experience.
The Essence process illuminates our way of being in the world. It reveals the negative, invisible and subconscious family of origin structures and patterns that changed our perception of seeing the world as it is. Consequently we have developed ineffective behaviour patterns to deal with our unrealistic misperception of our world. Dr Yousry takes participants on a magical journey to embrace the past without resistance, with compassion and acceptance instead of trying very hard to create an unachievable ideal world to compensate for our unresolved, unaccepted past hurts. This journey starts a process that deepens our lives by growing through the realisation that our behaviours are based on conclusions we arrived at as a result of our past experiences because Real life cannot be experienced
Dr Yousry works with people with an extraordinary clarity, compassion and humour without a ‘method’ by simply guiding people to a deep observation of their inner being. While methods are cognitive operational strategies to change our behaviour, Dr Yousry sees all human behaviour as a manifestation of the meaning we put on our past experience of our world . Therefore, changing our behaviour cannot work unless we transform our view of how we see our world. His approach to self-development is extraordinarily simple and self-revealing, leading to lasting transformation in our consciousness.
