- Ybe is a seasoned Trauma Therapist and she does a great job of weaving clinical vignettes with Trauma Theory. Highly recommend this book to practitioners and lay people that are interested in healing trauma and building resiliency. It is a must read for anybody that is interested in the healing capacity of the human spirit to overcome adversity.
- An incredibly important book. Whether we know it or not, most of us have experienced some form of trauma at some time in our lives. This book is written mostly for the lay person and is free of professional jargon. This means that anyone can read the stories, possibly find resonance in a similar scenario in his/her lives, and apply the exercises in order to break through the taboo and the pain and to gain new perspectives and--healing for his/her very individual situation.
- A true treasure, enriched with poems and songs (downloadable). A must read for anyone, and especially those who feel stuck in their lives.
- The first book that really helped me, thank you.
About the Author
I have a master degree in philosophy. I studied integrative psychotherapy, was trained as a family mediator, and specialized in constellation work and psychotraumatology. I am a member of BIP (Belgian Institue for Psychotraumatology) and ESTSS (European Society for Traumatic Stress Studies) and have an ECP accreditation (European Certificate Psychotherapy). I worked in many different settings, treating different kinds of people suffering from different types of trauma: people haunted by their past, survivors of child abuse, refugees, asylum seekers, victims of accidents, crimes or natural disasters, and, recently, victims of the terror attacks in Brussels.
With more than 10 years of experience, I carry countless real life stories of people in need with me. Many therapy sessions, interventions, exercises and outcomes – good ones and bad ones – are engraved in my mind. I wrote a beautiful book containing some of these stories, and now I am ready to pass on my expertise to you, to help you help.
