693. A French Chef's Recipe for Emotional Control
“When you look at the state of the world, the way I see it, all the problems we see — the racism, the wars — it’s only a big mirror of what’s going on inside each one of us, inside of every single human being.”
Cedric Bertelli is an expert in emotional regulation and the first and only person certified to teach the revolutionary emotional healing technique — Tipi — in the United States. Tipi uses the body’s sensory memory to permanently heal deeply rooted traumas and emotional conditions such as depression, PTSD, anxiety, anger, and grief. As Director of Tipi U.S.A, Cedric has been instrumental in its growth as an emotional healing technique in the United States and Canada. In addition to the hundreds of individual sessions he has conducted, he has trained over 100 therapists, educators, and psychologists to use Tipi in their work.
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
“I come from a tiny little village of 80 people in the south of France, between the woods and the vineyards. The first turning point for me was very early on. I was very attached to my mom and my grandmother, and I developed very quickly a passion for cooking and being in the kitchen. That was really something that made me happy very early on. Later, when my first year in high school did not go well, that’s when I decided to change completely and go to culinary school. I loved it! It was finally tapping into what I loved. It was life-changing.”
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
“I started looking into psychotherapy and other avenues, trying to feel better in my own skin. I found a program called Tipi, founded in France by Luc Nicon, who told me that anybody could completely resolve any kind of emotional pattern in 30 minutes using the technique. Of course, I was very skeptical, but curious. I contacted Luc and did a session with him on the phone. After only one session, an issue that had been coming into my life on a daily basis did not come back anymore! I quit my job with Ritz-Carlton in 2009, and went back to France to study the Tipi program.”
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“Forget about what may have happened within the last few years and realize that, once you decide you really want to do something, you can do it. Today can be a new beginning if you just put your mind to it.”
