A.I.M. is based on the question:
What happens with the identity of a woman when she becomes a mother?
A.I.M. is a therapeutic approach for women who are mothers. It is open to all forms of mothering and does explicitly not see motherhood as essential, “natural,” or given.
It is a non-pathologizing approach for working with themes of motherhood and identity.
A.I.M. always looks at motherhood as it unfolds in the very specific experience of each individual woman.
A.I.M. offers a space to explore questions of identity, development and orientation as they play into each womans experience of mothering. A.I.M. supports women in allowing and creating their very own mothering practice instead of painfully trying to squeeze themselves into some institution of motherhood.
This work aims to allow for more width, self-determination, creativity, joy, agency and depth.
Kristina Stauffacher is a Gestalt psychotherapist, sociologist and has trained as a NARM therapist. NARM is a therapeutic method for working with developmental and relational trauma. She has been working with women on themes of motherhood and mothering since 2007. Since then, she has faced a surprising lack of therapeutic approaches addressing motherhood AND individuality, subjectivity, personhood, growth, creativity and agency. To change this, she combined her clinical experience, extensive training, and theoretical research to develop A.I.M.
