About Lionel


Lionel Gougne is the founder of Emotional Gates Therapy™- a new alternative therapy and healing system that enables people to heal and fulfill themselves. He is also a craniosacral therapist and osteopath in practice for 14 years ("With the lightest touch, the most powerful healing" - Japan Times, 27/5/2006).

His activity started with a successful professional shift from law to healing after graduating from Yale Law School and being an attorney-at-law in a top international law firm in New York. One day, after reading the book Somato-Emotional Release by Dr. John Upledger, D.O., he decided to let go of everything to help others heal themselves physically, emotionally and get rid of "that which is not them and theirs". He studied craniosacral therapy and osteopathy at top institutions in the U.S., France and Japan and opened his own clinic in Tokyo in 2003 and then Berlin in 2010 where he successfully treated many patients, including children and babies.

Thanks to his clear-sightedness and ability to feel people's emotions in his own body, Lionel discovered, 11 years of practice later, how to heal people better by using emotions as gates to access and release subconscious blockages at the root of problems and by teaching clients how to plug directly into the dimension of oneness within them to disengage from imprints, blockages and limitations. His research also led him to discover a place in the body - a gate - through which one can access and experience the vibration of the True Self. 

This led him to develop Emotional Gates Therapy™ in 2014, which he practices and teaches today in London, Hampshire (U.K.), Geneva, Berlin, Brussels, Belgrade, Singapore and on Skype. You can watch an 8-minute interview of Lionel (Serbian/English) by clicking here (starts at 0'38 s).
