Who I am
My name is Ewald Berkers, and I'm here to help you dealing with your emotions, by processing them.
In the course of my life, I have gained a lot of psychological insight into how situations from your past influence how you are now.
My way of helping to process feelings is primarily based on what I learned as a student of the Ridhwan School. In this spiritual school, processing is called "Inquiry." Here, every emotion, feeling or thought that you could have, is "inquired into." Students do that in exercises with other students, in sessions with teachers, and on their own.
In the past 11 years, I have found this to make numerous changes in me. It has made me much calmer, more myself, and more aware. It has made me more open, where I used to be unnecesarily cautious and aloof. It has made me more kind and compassionate, as I learned to understand people's pain much better.
Because of the many good things this has brought me, I want to help others too, to become more aware of their feelings and emotions, and thus process them.
A dear friend of mine, who is an experienced psychotherapist (Elisabeth Klug), and is also a Ridhwan student, has stimulated and helped me to develop myself, to help people process their emotions.
I'd like to thank all other Ridhwan students and psychotherapists too, who have supported me developing myself for this, and this website.
