Why did you choose a yurt?

Because the yurt lends itself very well to focus, depth and reflection. The pace at which we live is getting faster, the world also seems to be changing faster and faster. I notice for myself and for my clients that people need silence and depth. And the yurt is very suitable for that.

Is it warm enough in your yurt or should I wear special winter clothes?

The yurt has an excellent stove which ensures that it is nice and warm. You park your car in the spacious parking lot and from there you walk via a well lit garden path to the yurt. Ordinary shoes and street clothes are totally fine.

Why is fire so important in your story?

Since time immemorial, people all over the globe have met around the fire. Sitting together around the fire means you also have the opportunity to reflect on your own thoughts and to share stories with each other. A fire provides a wonderful opportunity to appreciate yourself while you are together with others.

What should I imagine by body work and do I have to wear special clothing?

Our bodies have their own memories and each one tells its own story. Focus on body language is especially interesting when the body says something different from the spoken word. Focus on body language is sometimes useful in physical symptoms that cannot be explained by medical science alone. Body work is the focus on unconscious gestures that our hands make, the way we breathe, our body posture. This just happens as we sit across from each other. ‘Ordinary’ clothing is completely fine.

How can I best prepare myself for an interview?

Ideally you’ll have clear questions and that’s the best preparation for an interview. If you do not have a specific question yet, and are coming instead with a sense of uncertainity or lack of clarity, you’re also welcome. Then we’ll start by getting clarity on your questions.

Does it get very “spiritual” or “religious” in the yurt?

In my yurt I want to create a place where people can rest, reflect and from there again go ‘on the move’. You’ll not find any symbols that refer to particular religions or beliefs. If people want to talk about religion or spirituality, I certainly don’t avoid these issues.

Can I reach you via Skype?

Yes you certainly can. However, some questions are more suited than others to working with Skype. The fact is that 80% of our communication is non- verbal and unconscious. Much of this communication is lost via Skype. If you want to talk this through with me, we’ll do a strategy discussion (which may possibly be via Skype) to examine exactly what you need.

Where are you different from other therapists ?

Like many therapists I work on a cognitive and emotional level. Where I have something extra to offer, is that I’m trained to listen to the story that the body is telling. As a result there’s a possibility for personal growth on a deeper level, in an easy and natural way. Clients quite often experience this as enriching and healing.

And where are you different as a trainer in Transactional Analysis ?

In my yurt I bring people around the fire, so that the participants can build a professional network in a spontaneous and easy way. During the training weekend, I want to achieve the goal of ‘training’ hand in hand with the ‘enjoyment’ of peace, nature and TA. In addition, I am, as TSTA (Training and Supervising Transactional Analyst recognized by EATA) able to ensure a high quality, accredited and certified TA training.

Where did you train?

My introduction to TA was in Leuven with Nicole Claessens. My (five year!) TA training was in in Australia (the Australian Centre for Integrative Studies ). I completed the CTA exam in 2000 at a conference in New Zealand which was organized by a local professional organisation including many Maoris. I also had a TA training course in Switzerland (Bill Cornell), in the United States (Richard Erskine), France (Bill Cornell), England (the Berne Institute) etc. Because of this I am well placed to understand that wordwide TA frameworks differ significantly. For people who are committed to preparing for a TA exam, this might be an interesting point to consider.
