It is with deep sadness that I am sharing here the news that my dear colleague, Limor Regev-Peretz, passed away on Monday 3rd August, after a brief illness. Limor and I built this website together and have been co-facilitating Identity Constellations workshops for the past two years. I will greatly miss her warmth and friendliness, along with her deep understanding and skill with this work. I am taking a break from facilitating workshops to mourn her passing and adjust to working with out her support. I am not sure when I will resume workshops and in what form – I am sure that will unfold with time. – Daren De Witt, 6 August 2020
Do you ever ask yourself: Why am I This Way; What do I Really Want?
Our childhood attachments are at the heart of who we are and how we live our lives. These early experiences shape our minds and even our bodies.
They can cause us to act in ways that we may not like, such as searching for love in the wrong places, constantly seeking validation, or being destructive and critical towards ourselves or others.
Identity Therapy will enable you to explore your identity as it was formed through your early experiences and traumas in your family. You will gain an understanding of how these experiences are influencing your ability to be in the world, to make relationships, feel good about yourself and understand who you really are.
Identity Therapy normally takes place in the context of group work. You can also engage in this process in a private one to one session. Couples therapy sessions are also possible.
Limor Regev-Perez and Daren De Witt offer monthly group workshops. They also each offer private sessions and they work together with couples.
“Limor & Daren’s facilitation of this IoPT work is extremely professional and sure-footed. And . . . it is always executed with a gentle, tentative hand and an inquisitiveness. Nothing is ever forced. This creates a sense of ever-present safety and holding which I believe is the ground of this profound work.” – Jane S, workshop participant
Identity Therapy (Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Therapy) was developed by Professor Franz Rupert, alongside his trauma theory, from roots in the family constellations work of Bert Hellinger. This significantly revised method also incorporates current scientific and psychological theories of limbic resonance, bonding and attachment.
“Everything you need to know for your own trauma healing is within you. You can access it when you are ready to take the risk.” — Prof. Dr. Franz Ruppert
