Coaching for Women

Yara Thomale

Psychological Counselor, Holistic Coach, Nutritionist

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.

― Carl R. Rogers

Welcome to the ‘Spirit in Body’ Practice. My aim is to make our work together collaborative and enjoyable. I invite women to meet their emotional challenges as opportunities for growth. I believe compassionate acceptance and understanding of one’s present situation paves the way for change. I fully support Roger’s humanistic view that people get hurt but are basically healthy. We all possess innate strengths waiting to be uncovered. My therapeutic approach supports you in understanding the relationship between your emotions, thoughts, physical experiences and spirituality. You will gain deeper insight, work through your issues, and develop helpful coping skills ranging from psychological tools, wellness practices and nutritional adjustments. Together we will tailor sessions to best suit your individual needs and wishes. By moving towards self- empowerment, my clients will discover a greater capacity for joy.

About Me

I am a US trained integral psychotherapist with a mind, body and spirit approach to healing. Drawing from psychodynamic, somatic, systemic and transpersonal approaches and the major spiritual traditions, I view psychological healing and growth within the larger context of spiritual unfolding. Since 2000, I have provided psychological coaching for diverse clients in the US and in Germany in both inpatient and outpatient settings. My nutritionist training has contributed to a more holistic approach and has further emphasized the key role of the body in our psychological well-being.For the treatment of trauma I offer EMDR ( eye movement desensitization & reprocessing ). EMDR is an effective psychological technique to release the emotional attachments and memories triggered by trauma from the cellular memory and energy field of the emotional body.
