Praktijk voor imaginatie


Patricia Deiters- Rahusen (1956) has had her own practice as imagination therapist in Breukelen since 2000.

patricia‘After 15 years as a sworn interpreter-translator for French and Spanish, I wanted to work with language differently: with images behind words. I attended in particular a three-year programme at the School for Imagination in Amsterdam. In discovering active imagination, I discovered my essential being, as it were: who and what I am, and not who and what I had become. This insight had an enormously positive impact on me.
I also attended a variety of workshops on working with voice, systemic work, creative and visual expression, yoga, meditation and relaxation techniques. I like to help other people find new energy and inspiration to improve their lives.
