Body-mind connection fascinates me and evoke my curiosity since my youth.
In the last 15 years I follow this curiosity and study conventional and non-conventional therapies.
My education started with psychology studies. I was always curious about different therapy modalities and was naturally pulled to experience and explore; I did many additional trainings in things like Family constellation, group processes & psychodrama, Non-violence communication, Bach flowers, Theta Healing. I studied with Dr. Arnold Holtzman the creator of Psycho-diagnostic Chirology (PDC). Later enrolled in Transpersonal Psychotherapy.
But in 2012 I reached a breaking point, Psychology studies and transpersonal psychotherapy didn’t satisfy my curiosity.
It all felt very mental for me and I missed the body.
Movement and the body was always a big part of my life,
I was gymnastic as a child, a daughter to a Feldenkrize® teacher, and later in my youth Yoga and Partner-Acrobatic came into my life, and naturally I became a teacher.
Between 2012-2015 I was working as a pedagogic leader, part of my role was to bring movement arts and art into the work with the children.
In 2014 I formed groups for children and their parents for playful movement together, with the intention of strengthening their bond and connection what later became 'Family Playground'.
In 2013 chronic pain I carried since I was 15, erupted and completely changed my life.
I tried literally EVERYTHING to “fix it” but nothing lasted more than a few days.
Then I got an insight, My body doesn’t need not be fixed - it needs to Re-learn something.
It ended up being a life-changing process for me and brought me back to my psychotherapy training.
Since 2014 I offer bodywork therapy in my practice, the first certification as a Rebalancing therapist (Structural integration), and later, MER (Myofascial Energetic Release).
Since 2016 I'm a student for Somatic Developmental Psychology,
at the Bodynamic International.
EABP member. (European association for body psychotherapy)
I believe pain, like many other physical & emotional reactions, is a symptom, a sign, a call, a messenger, a way of the body to ask for our attention. But it was only a belief until it happened in my body.
I believe our bodies speak to us,
they are storytellers,
they hold the memories of what we have forgotten,
they hold what we were afraid to express.
In our posture,
In the way we hold ourselves,
In the way we integrate stress,
In our sensory integration,
and also in our pains.
Looking forward to meet you,
