What is IBP?
IBP is a non-invasive somatic form of therapy that treats the whole person, integrating body, mind, emotions, and spirit, that can facilitate deep and meaningful work with lasting results. IBP integrates the best approaches from Eastern and Western psychological, physiological and spiritual body-mind theories and practices into a highly efficient and effective somatic implementation model for therapeutic work and personal growth. Combining the techniques of boundary work, inner child work, creating your family scenario, mindfulness practises, and breath work makes this approach unique and takes the client way beyond talking. IBP experiential practices help to break through old, somatically maintained dysfunctional behaviour patterns by reawakening and establishing fully integrated states of well-being, constancy and a sense of self in the body that can lead to a transformation of consciousness at the core of one’s being.
Since 2013, I have been working as an IBP practitioner in my private practise in Duncan. I have been practising Buddhist Meditation since I was 19, and Kundalini Dance for the past 10 years. My interest in Psychology has led me to study this unique approach that addresses body, mind and spirit equally. IBP combines Eastern Wisdom with Western Science and appealed to me immediately. Learning to understand the loud but unheard messages of our bodies is a direct way to healing life long traumas and suffering. Using breath as a catalyst to liberate us from old and limiting belief systems that prevent us from being the person we want to be, is ancient and powerful.
IBP has opened my eyes and changed my life to an ongoing journey of awakening, that I would not have thought possible. Feeling more and more alive as I grow older is a priceless gift.

Body, Self & Soul
How accessing our body wisdom can change the life of our children...
Why is it so hard for human beings to change?
According to the latest research in Neuroscience, our subconscious controls about 95% of our behaviour. It has been programmed since conception by our mother and father (or any primary caregiver). Since subconscious means, we are not aware of it, we don’t experience ourselves playing out these behaviours. As a result, we often sabotage our own life, and don't understand why...
Finding out what our unconscious belief systems are and how our behaviour has been shaped by our family of origin, is the starting point for change and the basis of a therapeutic system, called IBP (Integrative Body Psychotherapy). Tracking back relationships and interruptions in our family of origin offers keys to understand our behaviour in the present. Once a pattern is conscious, we have a choice. It changes our perception from being a victim, to being in charge of our life. Or in CG Jung's words: “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will control you and you will call it fate.”
How do we change?
At this time of year you might be acutely aware that resolutions and the best of intentions don't necessarily bring the change we so badly want. In IBP we work with the intelligence of the body. While the conscious mind does not have access to memories before the age of 3, our body remembers everything! How? Through breath and acute body-awareness. Breath heightens body awareness and helps accessing memories in the safety of the presence of a skilled practitioner. Once the old shadow is released, it will be replaced by a new, healthy message, in IBP known as the “Good Parent Messages”.
Learning how to access my body's wisdom with the help of IBP has been a life changing path of Self empowerment for me. I now feel that I am in charge of my life and create my own reality day by day. I have the freedom to chose how I show up in relationships. It helps me in relationships, had me make peace with my parents and be a better mother, because I do not have to pass on those old patterns any longer.
I feel blessed to be able to share this precious work with my community.

Conscious Uncoupling Coaching
During the past 3 years, I have been tending to my own healing after the end of my marriage. I took the "Conscious Uncoupling Coach" training with Katherine Woodward Thomas, to help others through the massive crisis of breakup, but mainly because I needed the help myself. Now, after 3 years, I am feeling so grateful for these teachings. I have come out the other side with peace in my heart.
If you, or someone you know, is going through, or trying to recover from a breakup (no matter how long ago), and needs support, please reach out, and make an appointment. A breakup of a long term relationship is often a massive crisis. With the right support it can be a unique chance for personal growth and transformation. Without any support it can be a nightmare with no end in sight.
Healing takes time. Yet, it is not time that heals our wounds, if we don't tend to them. In the words of Katherine Woodward Thomas, "Time does not heal all wounds, we do".
Feeling the grief, the anger, the loss, the betrayal, and learning to love oursleves through it, takes time. Peace comes through forgiveness. Forgiving is not about letting the other off the hook, or excuse what happened. Forgiving is about finding peace in our own heart, despite what happened. As long as I blame the other for my unhappiness, I am the victim and give them power over me. If I dare to look at my own contributions to the failure of a relationship, I can learn and grow from those insights and become a stronger person through the crisis. "A relationship that doesn't end peacefully, doesn't end. It turns into war." We can find peace in our hearts, with or without the other person. It is our choice.
It would be in my joy to be by your side and guide you through the crisis that comes with a breakup, so you too, can find peace and thrive again.
