My name is Rik Vermeulen, born in The Netherlands, age 48.

I am trained at Bodymind Opleidingen at Integrated Psychotherapy and am registered at professional association SBLP.
I work with both individuals and groups.

Individual Therapy

Integrated Psychotherapy addresses the body, emotions and mind, and supports clients in their personal search for health, relaxation, authenticity and emotional maturity. For more information about Integrated Psychotherapy, continue reading below.

Group Training and Workshops

I developed a program called Waking Up To Imagination that is open to creative professionals with a project. The year training starts October 2018. Dates and costs will be announced soon. The year training consists of 10 full days (10-18 hour) working in a group, including two individual sessions. Applied methods are Bio-Energetics, Bodydrama, Insightful Communication, Character Styles, Group Dynamics, Reichian Breathing, Systemic Work and Dreamwork. For more information, click Flyer.

Two to five-day workshops will also be on offering and can be designed according the wishes of your event or institute.

Then, in October 2018 a 10-evening course Leven in je Lijf (Aliveness in your Body) will also start. Each course evening contains breathing, body-oriented exercises and contact exercises. The course will be given in the city of Delft and is part of a national network netwerk Leven in je lijf.

Individual Therapy, an Introduction

It is in early childhood we create a variety of coping mechanisms, most often with reason. As we grow up these mechanisms often turn redundant, yet remain operational even when life’s situation may have changed. It is in these moments the aged coping mechanisms end up causing physical and psychological pains. In therapy we bring awareness to your body and pay close attention to your mental thoughts. We explore the mechanisms, give expression to repressed pains and desires, and bring hidden qualities back into your life. Eventually, when connecting with your original desires, truth and perception, health, joy and creativity returns in your life.
