David Démann

Founder of the AEMD Method

David Démann created and developed an innovative method that allows patients to go beyond their own instinctual and emotional blockages, to be free from their emotion- masks. From intellectual postures to deception, we often fool ourselves.

Using innovating verbal tools, the AEMD Method is centered on the search of the harmony between our desires and our unconscious behaviours. Once our subterfuges are uncovered, a new psychological field opens up and where patients can reconnect and adjust their behaviours.

To do so,  the practitioner enlists a variety of tools and themes, as well as verbal and metaphorical models, enabling the patient to reflect and perceive which can translate quickly into new behaviours.

Thanks to the Démann Method, “feel”

becomes a tool to progress

 

The patient identifies his/her own trauma by comprehending the emotion that develops in his/her own words. The practitioner’s responsibility is to guide the “swing” between the inner movement created by the emotion and the external movement translated into behaviors. Once the patient has deciphered his/her own emotional mechanics, he/she can start to adjust consciously the hindering neurotic systems that were blocking him/her.

Everything is based on observation: it is the emotion, more than the comprehension, that triggers an inner revelation. Such revelation then commands an external movement: the behaviour. This impulsion is key to regain one’s emotional autonomy and to feel better. This Method, is designed for individuals who have suffered a trauma, blocking situations or disturbing patterns.

Distancing oneself from a trauma can be difficult. Some people, even after undertaking “conventional” therapies, continue to feel embarrassed, uncomfortable, or blocked. Others develop addictions, phobias, somatisations, amongst others… The Démann Method is neither medical, nor psychiatric, nor esoteric; it is truly efficient for anyone who is unable to cope with his/her neurosis.

It is an analytical method, based on words, built around an open and sustained conversation, where the practitioner and the patient are both involved during sessions lasting approximately an hour and thirty minutes sessions.

Developed since the beginning of the 90’s, the Emotion and Behaviour Analysis – Démann Method was founded in 2000. The original AEMD Association was created in Switzerland in 2010 and then became a Foundation in 2017. As for the French AEMD Association (Nonprofit Organizations Law of 1901), it was created in January 2016. Their mission is to develop and introduce the Method and train new practitioners.
