Meet the NY therapist who solves patients’ problems by stripping off!

London, Mar 3 (ANI): A 24-year-old New York woman, with an interest in psychology, conducts therapy sessions during which she removes her clothing.

By slowly peeling away the layers of her clothes during the session, Sarah White believes it will allow her to peel away the layers of her clients’ subconscious, reports the Daily Mail.

She believes she is using the “power of arousal” to let the clients gain more control over their life.

White told the New York Daily News: “The goal is to use nakedness so you can understand yourself and your world better, so you can feel great and powerful, and so the excitement you feel during the sessions can lead to more excitement outside the sessions.”

“For men especially, who are less likely than women to go to therapy, it is more interesting, more enticing, more exciting. It’s a more inspiring approach to therapy.

“I felt early on that something was missing from classical therapy, it seemed to encourage repression as opposed to encouraging people to open up.”

She said of her approach: “Naked therapy has been very eye opening and worldly for my clients.

“The goal is to show patients I have nothing to hide, and encourage them to be more honest.

“For men in particular, seeing a naked woman can really help them focus, look deeply into themselves and speak their minds openly.

“Freud used free association. I use nakedness.”

Not surprisingly, professional psychologists are not sold on her idea.

Diana Kirschner, a New York-based clinical psychologist, said: “She’s using the word therapy here, but I don’t consider this therapy. I consider this interactive soft-core Internet porn.” (ANI)
