Coaching and awareness

Hi there! I'm so happy that you found my website. This might just be the first day of the rest of your life as you are about to discover the most empowering tool you will ever find to help you live your life to the fullest, being fully present in the here and now. This wonderful tool is called: Past Reality Integration, PRI in short.

Past Reality Integration is developed by the Dutch psychologist Ingeborg Bosch and is based on the premise that we, as adults, often perceive the world through the defense mechanisms that we have developed as children. These defense mechanisms see to it that we do not have to feel the pain which was inflicted upon us as children. However these defense mechanisms are exactly what makes us, as adults, suffer the most as they give us a distorted perception of our perceptions of the present reality. Fear, depression, anger, stress and lack of true contact with ourselves and other people are the root cause of our problems in the present.

Read more about PRI on the PRI website:

PRI can really change your life fundamentally. As a PRI therapist I can help you to learn this method for yourself, so you will be able to help yourself with the PRI tools the rest of your life.

I wrote a book about my own personal PRI journey and how I was able to reconnect with my mother, who left me when I was only 5 years old. We had almost no contact all my life. At a certain point in my life, I really wanted to understand what had happened all those years ago, why she had left our famliy and why she never came back. I asked her in a letter if she would tell me 'her side of the story'. This was the start of a correspondence between us, that lasted over three years, in which we exchanged more than a hundred letters. Eventually we saw each other again, in June of 2018. It felt like coming home. I'm deeply grateful that we were able to reconnect. This would not have been possible f I had not known about PRI.

I wrote a book about how I found myself and my mother, the book will be published in Holland in April 2020.
