An unfolding is like the emergence of a tight bud that takes its own time to come into full bloom – it cannot be forced.

I got divorced for the second time while I was in my 40s; it felt as though my world had come crashing down. I went through a midlife unfolding. Unlike a midlife crisis, which is generally resolved in a short space of time, an unfolding is like the emergence of a tight bud that takes its own time to come into full bloom – it cannot be forced. I couldn’t bear my own unhappy, constricted idea of how life should be anymore and so started going for therapy. Therapy made such a huge difference in my life. I decided to learn, study and apply various forms of therapy, first to myself before working with others. 

For 12 years now, I have been holding a healing space for others to go through their own unfolding. I offer Tension and Trauma Release® (TRE®), Family Constellations and The Work of Byron Katie. My main intention as a practitioner is to create a safe environment for individuals to feel deeply and allow their own healing, thereby changing their own biology, family conditioning and thought patterns. This is how we change the world – one person at a time.

I was amazed at how Barbara held the space for the body to heal itself. Her gentle touch together with respect and integrity for the body was very special.

During my TRE session I experienced a tremoring, of something ‘returning’ to me…My skin started feeling completely alive and like a buzzing sensation…followed by a wave of emotion flowing through me. Barbara’s TRE session offered the beautifully held conditions for my body to heal itself.
