About Serge Prengel


Serge Prengel's approach is experiential and integrative. He aims for
deep insights that are action-oriented.


"It takes a sense of comfort and safety to explore unresolved challenges, to get in touch with difficult feelings, and to find the motivation and inner strength that foster lasting change.

"My goal is to create the kind of atmosphere that makes this possible. I am emotionally present with you. I use my creativity, and I appeal to your creativity.

"This work is interactive: Both you and I are actively involved in the creative process of making change happen.

"Even dealing with difficult situations can come to feel like a very satisfying process when it is done with emotional honesty and creativity."

Serge Prengel, LMHC, is a graduate of France's Sorbonne University and HEC Business School. He is certified in Focusing, in Core Energetics and in Somatic Experiencing.

He started and operated an ad agency in New York for many years. In the early 1990's, his focus shifted to exploring creativity as a tool for personal growth and healing.
