FinaFina Vyverfinavyver-gar@hotmail.com, I am a Dutch Coach for the Gupta Amygdala Retraining Programme (G.A.R.) in Spain and the Netherlands. I speak fluent English and enough German and French to support your process and I am practising my Spanish. I am a Body Oriented Psychotherapist since 1988 with my own private practice. Next to working with clients I can also supervise other ‘G.A.R.’ Coaches (Gupta Amygdala Retraining) in working through their own patterns and problems they meet in working with clients and the G.A.R.-Programme at a professional level. I have ample experience with being a supervisor.

I can work with skype, e-mail, telephone or ‘live’ sessions in the Netherlands or Spain (Vinaros, 200 km south of Barcelona).

Dutch Introduction /Nederlandse introductie:

Fina Vyver, Nederlandse Coach voor het Amygdala Retraining Programma (G.A.R.)

Mijn naam is Fina Vyver en ik woon in Spanje en Nederland. Ik ben sinds 1988 lichaamsgericht Psychotherapeut en heb een eigen praktijk. Ik ben opgeleid op de Vrije Universiteit van Amsterdam (faculteit van Bewegingswetenschappen). Ik ben Coach voor het Gupta Amygdala Retraining Programma (G.A.R.) en Supervisor voor andere Coaches voor dit programma. Ik spreek Engels, Duits , Frans en bijna genoeg Spaans om processen te ondersteunen in die talen.

Ik heb 15 jaar een Chronisch Vermoeidheids Syndroom (CVS) gehad. Totdat ik in 2009 over het Gupta Amygdala Retraining Programme (G.A.R.) las. Ik was meteen enthousiast want ik begreep dat Ashok Gupta een bijzondere combinatie had gevonden met zijn programma. In dit programma vond ik de combinatie van het meest recente neuropsychologische onderzoek, de kracht van visualisatie en heldere kennisoverdracht, meditatie technieken en NLP. Ashok Gupta’s ontembaar enthousiasme en motiverende ondersteuning hebben voor mijn genezing een belangrijke rol gespeeld. Door gebruik te maken van de begeleidende DVD’s en CD’s kun je je eigen ritme volgen en daardoor binnen je eigen grenzen blijven. Het programma geeft een duidelijk beeld van de samenhang van lichaam en geest en de functie van de amygdala hierin.

Door een half jaar lang zeer intensief en nauwgezet de opdrachten te volgen werd ik voor 75 % beter. Ik ben daarna nog een half jaar met het programma doorgegaan en voel mij nu gewoon gezond. Wat een wonderlijk gevoel! En wat een dankbaarheid!! Door deze ervaring ben ik gemotiveerd geraakt om een deel van mijn psychotherapie-praktijk te wijden aan het ondersteunen van mensen met CVS/fibromyalgie en andere aandoeningen die in verband worden gebracht met een ontregelde Amygdala.

Als officiële Coach voor dit programma geef ik ondersteuning in praktische zin: hulp bij het vinden van voldoende motivatie om het programma vol te houden en verheldering over de technieken of thema’s die aan bod komen. Daarnaast is vaak een ondersteuning van de diepe patronen die je energieniveau beïnvloeden nodig, omdat juist die patronen een doorbraak naar gezond worden kunnen verhinderen.

Wellicht grijp je deze gelegenheid aan om het proces van beter worden met behulp van dit programma een kans te geven! Als je coaching nodig hebt bij het volgen van het programma of je hebt vragen dan kan je mij een e-mail sturen: mailto:finavyver-garprogramme@hotmail.com

Tarieven zijn gezins-inkomen afhankelijk en varieren van € 66,– tot € 110,– per uur. Je betaalt in eenheden van tien minuten. Wij kunnen per Skype/e-mail contact hebben of per telefoon en geregeld ook ‘live’ in Naarden (NH) of Utrecht.

Group Coaching Occasionally, Ashok Gupta and some of the private coaches offer 3-month group coaching via telephone/Skype conference calls. Check here for updates.

Reverend Wright’s Be in Health Program
A Christian program being used by some with chemical sensitivity and other conditions with success, based on the belief that many diseases are the result of separation between God, yourself and others. The program helps you identify and resolve spiritual roots of disease. Some of the issues they help you deal with are fear, stress, guilt, self-hatred and rejection. They claim that these feelings negatively impact the body, soul and spirit, thus causing disease. It has been theorized by some in the brain retraining community familiar with the program that although spiritual in nature, the Be In Health approach may work through similar mechanisms – by calming the amygdala and retraining the brain to function via healthier neuronal pathways. For this reason, we include this program here, as a more spiritual approach may resonate for some people and we have heard many anecdotal testimonies of recovery from chemical sensitivity through this program.

ADJUNCT THERAPIES
Modalities that people with environmentally based illnesses like chemical sensitivity, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia are using in conjunction with brain retraining programs to assist with their healing:

Buteyko Breathing Method
A natural approach to healing respiratory and other ailments based on the premise that many people in the western world breathe too much (chronic hyperventilation) due to our modern lifestyles. Typical characteristics of an over-breather include mouth breathing, regular sighing, large breaths prior to talking, breathing loud during rest, etc. Overbreathing creates disturbances in the ratio of oxygen to carbon dioxide and other gases that are distributed to organs and tissues in the body, and can cause a variety of health symptoms including asthma, fatigue, anxiety, and depression. The Buteyko breathing exercises focus on reducing breath volume over time. Some people with chemical sensitivity are sharing that these breathing exercises have helped them with sleep problems, fatigue, food intolerances, chemical sensitivity, OCD thought patterns, and an overall calming of brain activity. You can purchase a variety of mp3 downloads, DVDs, CDs, and/or books from the below links or work with a private coach to learn the process.
