"Being embodied and in connection with your environment, so that you participate consciously and fully in your life."

 

In therapy I focus on health, quality of life and meaning. It is important that someone can feel at home in his- or herself and his/her own body. Especially after adversity, challenging relationships, difficult events, loss, illness and stress. Within therapy we work on discovering and connecting with our own possibilities for change and recovery. I would like to help you find your individual way within this process

.

As a dance therapist and body-oriented therapist (Registered Somatic Movement Therapist) I mainly work non-verbally. The sessions are therefore mainly experience-oriented and working with the body is central. The body does not lie and tells more than 1000 words ...

 

In the current period of social distancing, individual sessions can take place online via ZOOM, and also face to face (subject to a distance of 1.5 meters and other security measures) in the Tridance space. Click here for address.

Method

In an intake interview (introductory session) I tune in to personal needs, and then come up with a proposal for a tailor-made process. The duration of a process and the chosen interventions depend entirely on the person and the question. What does keep coming back is the attention for the body.

Your body and your movements are both a source of information and an entry point for the therapy: how you move and what you experience in your body tells a lot about how you are, feel and think. Your patterns and problems become visible in how you move, which is the starting point for the (change) process. Through the body and in movement you (re) connect with yourself and your environment, you learn to feel and become aware of what is / is not good for you. There is more balance in the body, thinking and feeling.

You don't have to be able to dance or be good at any kind of movement. In the therapy sessions I always tune in to you as a person, what is present in the moment and what becomes visible in the (expression) movement. Which methods and interventions I choose depend on your personality and (help) question. It also looks at what is really important to you in your life and what can support you in this.
