I’m trained in Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy and Psychology (The Gerda Boyesen Method) and registered with the UKCP. I’m a qualified Yoga Teacher and I’ve been practising Buddhist meditation over 20 years. I’m a member of the Ridhwan School, where the emphasis lies on the combination of spiritual and psychological practices to unfold healing.
I have had plenty of opportunity to study different approaches and collect a variety of tools. I was always most fascinated by models that work deep and show a combination of courage and compassion in the face of the suffering we meet in this profession, to name a few: any type of body oriented method, Mindfulness based therapy, the spiritual path of the Diamond Approach and lately Internal Family Systems therapy.
These models extend beyond the limitations of the mind and offer a direct contact with our essential self. It is here that we can find the truth of who we really are. It is from this core of our being that we can develop the qualities that will support our healing journey: compassion, love, truth, willpower, strength, wisdom and a joyful heart.
Personal experience has shown me that the spoken language is often not enough. Early trauma, depression, anxiety and most personality disorders will profit from an approach that is not afraid of being visible as therapists and even touchable. The use of touch is always handled with care and only in agreement with the client, but if used wisely it can be transformational.
