Integrative Body Psychotherapy
Integrative Body Psychotherapy (IBP) embraces the human experience in all its dimensions: psychologically, physically, emotionally, interpersonally, energetically and spiritually.
It was created by Dr Jack Lee Rosenberg in California in the 1960’s and is today practiced across the world. It is taught in eleven IBP Institutes across the USA, Switzerland, Germany and Canada. In Belgium, it is taught by André Duchesne, MPs, from the Montreal Institute of IBP along with Ginette Lépine and the teachers of the Belgian Institute of IBP.
This approach integrates aspects of several approaches such as Gestalt, Reichian therapy, Psychoanalysis, Transpersonal Psychology, Focussing, Self Psychology, as well as several gentle physical approaches. It is inspired by the teachings of Freud, Jung, Perls, Reich, Lowen, Rodgers, Winnicott and Kohut, as well as by eastern philosophy.
One of the special features of IBP is that it works simultaneously on psychological issues and their physical roots. In that way, it helps you gain an experience of yourself differentiated from the past and creates new imprints, new cellular memories and alternative reflexes when interacting with others.
