Dignity and Love Letters
Do you know that Love could solve all the problems in the world? So ... why not write it down? We all have to start from a starting point!
"Love may be a closed letter, but words open those letters to the light. It wasn't when I met you, when I spoke to you or even when I touched you. It was when I dreamed of you and it happened long before I knew if you existed."
This can be the beginning, or the end, of a love letter.
"Having distant children is like having several addresses in different parts of the Planet. Many mothers have children immigrated and mine are no different, nor will I - certainly - be a special Mother. But I am a woman of love and, therefore, I want to write this Love Letter to my children."
If you don't know how to write a love letter, connect with Dignity Therapy.
Here, we speak your tone.
We are your voice.
We give body to your words and soul to eternity.

More than words, your photos speak for your soul.
Some people have representative photographs of the most important moments of their lives: dreams, travels, birth of children, weddings, reunions and projects of their own or their ancestors accomplishments lives.
And so, they prefer to speak less and portray themselves. Is it your case?
Then, you found the right place to write your Life Book photos.
Think of how many words have died in your mouth or your heart because because you didn't have a chance to say them.
Mourning Dignity Support
Application of Dignity Therapy during Mourning Processes
Biographies ou Life Books of those who will never be forgotten.
Grief is the state of loss when someone close to us disappears from our life.
However, Mourning Therapy is not just about a death loss. We can mourn the loss of a relationship, a job, a dream, an empty destination or lost purpose.
A healthy grieving process is fundamental to the growth of the bereaved person as a human being. It is possible to live with the pain of the loss of someone very close, but it is not possible to learn how to live this new life without going through a process of growth and self maturation.
In my Therapy you can find the possibility of carrying out an individual mourning therapy adjusted to mothers and fathers, grandparents, siblings, children and grandchildren, or families.
I apply Dignity Therapy Protocol to someone who has left through his/her family or loved ones .
The family (or a single person) may want to grieve by reporting the life of the person he/she love and who has recently left life as we know it.
The process is identical to Therepy with the elderly or palliative patients: I meet with the person, or with the family, apply the Dignity Therapy Protocol, do a audio record, transcribe the answers and edit them in a paper format.
Biography ou Life Book: what is written will be handed over to the family later.
Go on loving. Go on living. Grow and blossom.
Therefore, mourning process will be supported with a memory process that will dignify the person who left, with all his/her objectives accomplished, stories, remembrances, memories and meanings that he/she assigned to life events.
Everything, reported not in the first person but by the words of the loved ones he/she left away.
Spiritual Support with Elderly or in Chronic Illness or in Palliative Care
A profound spirituality results in a peaceful view of life, aging and terminality.
As Science reveals more and more evidences about connections between mind, soul and body, it becomes clear that spirituality, religion and faith can help some illness persons to live resiliently with their condition.
It is usual for illness persons, their families and friends to call into question existential issues that touch a deep spirituality they had never thought of before. Sometimes it is not about the divinity a person need to know, or about God or religion. However, this person is needed to deeply express about his/her meaning of life.
Reflecting on these and other matters is very important and can help in making decisions about the disease itself and the future.
Spirituality is the patient relationship to his/her transcendent, his/her existential and metaphysical visions and his/her journey beliefs.
Spiritual support - and not necessarily religious one - can add additional positive value to patient's relationship with his/her life, with family and even with the health professionals care.
This allows the patient a new perspective on the deprevition that is happening in his/her life, on his/her most intimate, profound and spiritual decisions he/she needs to undertake, on his/her future and the future of those he/she loves.
