My name is Sophie Zeestraten and I have my own PRI practice in The Hague. Before I became a PRI therapist, I worked in the corporate world (lawyer) and then worked for many years as a government policy advisor. Because PRI has helped me so much personally, I wanted to pass this on to others.
I also wrote a book – Mother Soul – about my personal experiences and what PRI has meant in them.
The problems we experience in daily life are often caused by our – without realizing it – looking at the world through the lens of our past and by subconsciously continuing to use the survival strategies we had as children when we once grown up. This can manifest itself in various complaints (for example, stress complaints, fears, anger, sadness, relationship problems or problems in parenting).
What still fascinates me is how things are passed on unconsciously from parent to child, what the effect is and also how you can stop this process. And also what the effect is of our ‘backpack’ on our (partner) relationships. Everyone has a unique life story and I guide anyone who experiences complaints in his or her daily life and would like to get started.
