The potential for ongoing learning and finetuning our craft is endless in psychotherapy. In the more than 20 years that I have been practicing I have continuously trained and studied. Today it brings me tremendous joy to be able to pass on the knowledge and expertise I have accumulated to other inspired psychotherapists.

“This training offers a new angle to look at clients. For me, IPNB is a valuable support in the therapy room; it gives me extra tools to recognize patterns such as fixation or chaos in which clients appear, and to get to work on them.
Liesbet is a passionate, inspiring trainer, she adapts herself to the participants and makes sure there is enough variation between clarifying the theory, experiencing the practice, and feeling.”

"Liesbet has the ability to present formal theoretical issues related to the real, practical cases and this makes it clearer and more understandable. I got good understanding of how to use presented material while working with people. The training subject itself is truly integrative, it makes links between neurobiology and psychotherapy and creates a broader understanding of human behavior and its transformation mechanisms."
Maia Begashvili, Director of International Integrative Academy, Tbilisi, Georgia
"We chose Liesbet as a trainer based on strict criteria: high professionalism, abilities of presenting materials, theory that would be enriched with practical experience, humanistic and sensitive approach to the participants. Liesbet deserves to be called one of the best trainers in integrative psychotherapy and I recommend her as trainer for every training institute specializing in psychotherapy training.
Despite distance between us, she is a part of our team, and we love her.
