  • “Talking with my partner, how do I do it?”

    What I want

    I don’t want to be good, cool,
    strong, brave,
    nice, cheerful, funny,
    honest nor sensible,
    and also not the wisest, the best, the first or last –
    just a little bit, a touch of unfindable,
    (except for you).

  • “From divorce battle to worthy parenthood”

    When parents divorce, their children divorce as well. All that used to be familiar, is going to change. Children struggle with questions and feelings which they keep to themselves for different reasons (of which fear is one). It is in these nasty times that children can use some support.

    Your world is upside down as well and, although you want to be available for your child(ren), you probably won’t be able to spend all the attention the child(ren) need(s).

    Depending on the phase of the divorce you are in, depending on the fact whether or not it was your choice to split up, depending on how you have come to the decision, depending on many more aspects and reasons you may make the right choices together or reach important decisions with less harmony.

    In order to provide you with some ‘handles’ in this period of your life, we have developed a program that focuses on you as a parent and on your child(ren).

    This joint program shows similarities for both parents and children and both ‘branches’ are held simultaneously on the same location. You, parents, will work together and you child(ren) will work (individually/together). In the course of the sessions moments are scheduled at which parents and children share with each other what they have been doing.

    • For parents with their children
    • 5 sessions (2,5 hours)
    • Date and location are to be defined depending on subscription and expressed interest.
    • Price (per family): to be confirmed
  • “Introduction into Mindfulness”

    During this workshop you will get acquainted with a specific meditation technique. We’ll focus on your breathing, mindfulness and posture. You will experience how to get away from your thoughts and yet be completely alert and available. We will practice a lot in order for you to apply also at your home the experience gained. For those who want, the opportunity to share experience with others is offered as well.

    • 1 evening (19h30 – 22h00)
    • Date and location are to be defined depending on subscriptions and expressed interest.
    • € 50,- / person
  • “Please hold me tight”

    Did you expect more of your relationship or isn’t it running smoothly?
    Do you want to improve or deepen your relationship?

    Then, the “Hold me tight” program (no therapy) awaits you.

    “Hold me tight” is a light version of EFT (emotionally focused therapy).
    Just like EFT, “Hold me tight” start from emotions.

    The “Hold me tight” program has a fixed structure and is based on the book with the same title by Sue Johnson.
    Topics covered:

    • Emotions in love and connecting / bonding;
    • Discover (destructive) patterns in relationships;
    • Finding and exploring old sore from the past;
    • Building a safe basis allowing discussion of difficult topics.

    During the training sessions we’ll work with video material, exercises and homework.

    You’ll mainly be practicing with your partner!
