“I hold a compassionate, open-hearted presence with a strong spiritual consciousness component with the work. We are spiritual beings learning how to become more embodied and present in the 'now 'of our bodies.  For me, it is not about transcending the body, but learning how to let go of the mind and listen to the deep wisdom of the body. Learning how to live with greater balance by integrating the body with mind and soul is the objective of healing. The body is central to being alive and without a body, there is no life possible.

I listen intuitively to the words underneath your words.  I actively observe and assist you to engage with your body, its movements, your breath and teach you how to listen to the deeper truths hidden within.  At times we may express sound, use touch in various respectful ways or mirror your authentic, truer self, through cognitive awareness. Or we might use transpersonal visualizations, or dream work analysis to explore the unconscious further. You will learn how to be more present, discover the felt sense of your body, and how to gently let go of your dysfunctional parts that may hold you back from living your life with more vitality, aliveness and joy."


Ingrid is trained to observe the micro-movements in body language and expression with deep listening to the words as well as the content behind the words. She does deep therapeutic work that integrates consciousness with the body, with over 20 years of experience in dream analysis,  positive life coaching and so much more. Ingrid can help you to uncover unconscious blocks that prevent the free expression of your soul being, giving you new hope and support to grow and thrive to your most optimal and vital self!”

My Background Experience

The Path of the Mystic

Ingrid walks the path of the Mystic, and is Spiritual Guide into the 'Unknown'.  She accepts the mystery of the universe and is equally fascinated and constantly curious about it, all the time.  She is a deep explorer of 'Alternate Realities'.  She holds space well for others who are searching for their deeper, soul self including sense of a larger experience of how we are all inter-connected.
