Christina SchönHigh Blood Pressure – extreme pressure starting from the earliest time of life

Already pre-birth the child has to adopt the trauma feelings of his mother to be able to get into contact with her. Usually the mother also traumatizes the child if she does not deal with her traumas. So both, the adopted as well as the experienced traumas have an impact on the child's body. The own mourning, powerlessness, anger, shame, fear of death are split off to survive. From the start, the body and the cells store all sensations and feelings. Therefore, from the very beginning of life an extreme pressure has evolved, an enormous continuous tension, which may for example result in high blood pressure in the middle of lifetime. In my workshop, I want to discuss this topic based on my own experiences as well as examples of my clients. There will be the opportunity of an IoPT-constellation on the issue of „High Blood Pressure“.

Astrid Ersland SandvikThe great joy of finding my ”I”

Many of my clients are feeling lonely, not belonging, not good enough even if they have work, family, and friends. Could early trauma have such consequences? Not knowing who they really are, not knowing what they want, and having bodies sabotaging the owners? Giving them autoimmune problems, inflammations, the need to calm down with alcohol or drugs etc. Some goes into relationships in order to get away from the pain of being alone, no matter if the partner is an alcoholic, much traumatized etc.

I want to have a short talk about what we get into when the healthy ”I” and healthy ”will” is split off from early age. And give some “golden” insights from clients in their search for themselves. IoPT theory explains what happens to us when we make early traumatizing experiences. IoPT therapy gives a way to reclaim ourselves, including body, psyche and trauma biography.

There is time for one constellation, with a topic connected to health problems or problems in relationships.
