A lot of people are contacting me, and it is not possible for me to reply to everyone on a one-on-one basis.
I am the administrator of the Facebook group Mold Avoiders - Europe. This is a forum and support group for people committed to practicing Effective Mold Avoidance, and you are welcome to join the discussion.
I try to personally answer people's questions in the group as much as possible.
Mold Avoidance Mentoring
I can provide personalised mentoring on Effective Mold Avoidance and healing from mold poisoning. I would work with you and your particular situation to find the best possible strategies to maximize your healing.
I follow a natural, gentle approach for healing, focussing on avoiding environmental toxins and toxicants that interfere with our body's natural processes and supporting the natural healing of the body with good nutrition and a few supplements.
I am also available to offer you emotional support for dealing with the challenges of chronic illness and the difficulties it poses to interpersonal relationships and to living a full and meaningful life. I have studied extensively about the brain and the body-mind connection, both in my academic training as well as my personal life, because these topics are of great interest to me.
I use the principles of the Hakomi method of body-mind therapy as guidelines in my personal life as well as in interaction with students and have devoted myself to studying this method, which I believe is an incredible tool for supporting healing of any kind and a healthy, integrated life.
Here is a short introduction to the Hakomi principles (quoted from the Hakomi Institute)
"MINDFULNESS is a powerful tool for helping persons study the organization of their experience. It is an exploratory, relaxed and alert, meditative (though non-hypnotic), state of consciousness, which allows us to move beyond our normal, habitual thoughts and actions to the often richly non-verbal intuitions of our deeper states. The process also supports the mobilization of our essential or core selves, which have a presence, centeredness, compassion, and wisdom that transcends the limitations of our historical experience.
NON-VIOLENCE is a principle that promotes safe, non-forceful, cooperative exploration through honoring the signs and signals of our organic processes, especially those that manifest as “resistance.” In contrast to confronting or overpowering such “defenses,” the Hakomi methodology respects and literally supports such occurrences, which then allows them to be befriended for the wisdom they contain, and willingly yielded when appropriate.
The principle of MIND-BODY INTEGRATION affirms that mind and body jointly manifest and reflect the beliefs we hold about ourselves and the world, which in turn organize how we creatively experience and express ourselves in life. Hakomi has many ways of exploring the mind-body connection to help bring to awareness this somatic material, and the core beliefs and experiences that generate it.
The UNITY principle assumes that, as people, we are living, organic systems that are integral wholes, composed of parts, which also participate in larger systems. The interdependency of all levels of the system, including the physical/metabolic, intrapsychic, interpersonal, family, cultural, and spiritual are taken seriously in Hakomi.
ORGANICITY assumes that when all the parts are communicating within the whole, the system is self-directing and self-correcting, and has an inner wisdom of its own. In Hakomi, we support our clients’ organic unfolding toward wholeness, and trust that this is the direction that their system will naturally seek. Rather than imposing their own agenda, the therapist works cooperatively with the client’s system."
