Bogdana Bursuc Landry - Clinical Psychologist, Psychotherapist. 

I have been practicing psychotherapy for the last 22 years in my private practice in Bucharest, Romania. I am a NARM psychotherapist since 2017. Over the years I have attended several psychotherapy schools and trainings, DGfS Family Constellations, Neuro-Affective Touch, SE, EMDR, MBSR, CBT - ACT, DBT. One of my master's degrees is Master of Health Psychology at Universidad de Minho, Braga and I still understand Portuguese and can speak a little. I continue my own individual and supervision sessions with my teachers, and for me this is undoubtedly one of the most powerful tools for personal and professional development. I can offer my support in English, French, Romanian and, I hope, soon in Portuguese. And I look forward meeting you.

Ola Myszka - I am a psychologist with almost 20 years of therapeutic experience and a PhD in clinical psychology. I specialize in an individual work with adults suffering from early traumas. In my background I have a Gestalt school of therapy, systemic therapy and practice in dynamic meditation . I am a certified practitioner of NARM™ , Somatic Experiencing®, and SOMA®. These therapeutic approaches provide modern, neurophysiologically based methods for working with trauma.

While working with a person it is very important for me to work in the perspective of the "here and now". In my opinion such perspective serves to integrate all levels of human functioning - cognitive, emotional, physical and spiritual. For many years I have been a member of the teaching faculty - conducting classes, workshops and coaching groups in the field of psychology of stress and trauma, self-regulation and sport psychology for the University of Wroclaw and other private postgraduate schools.

Since 2017 I have been assisting   NARM ™ courses in Poland and abroad (Romania, Greece, Belgium).

I regularly deepen my understanding of NARM by participating in coaching triads and group supervisions.

I can provide accredited sessions and supervision (individual and group) for NARM ™ course participants.

Sabine Sonika Husfeld-Suethoff - My name is Sonika, and I am assisting NARM since many years. I finished my own training in 2011 and assisted Larry, Michael and Beate ever since. Originally, I trained to become a physiotherapist, then a naturopath. After many years of training, I felt that without incorporating the nervous system and developmental trauma, healing and change would not have a lasting effect.

Luckily, I met Larry and with him the missing link in my work.

My passion lies in NARM, after so many years I still feel very inspired by it and at ore about this method and its attitude. I am living in Hamburg and work in my own clinic.
