Hot off the press… the latest book from Professor Ruppert – My Body, My Trauma, My I: Setting Up Intentions, Exiting our Traumabiography. Published by Green Balloon Publishing, UK. To purchase click here.

In this book Professor Ruppert expands on his theories of psychotrauma to include the physical impact in many common ailments and ‘diseases’. Ruppert’s theoretical chapter is then supported by a chapter by Dr Harald Banzhaf, a medical doctor and researcher, and 23 subsequent chapters by practitioners of IoPT theories and the Intention Method in support of the notion that physical disturbance in all their forms are indeed initiated by very early issues of trauma.

Welcome to my website, which covers my work with Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Therapy (IoPT), a new therapeutic development that looks in depth at emotional and psychological trauma, and its impact on our identity, our sense of who we are, our physical health and wellbeing.

Feel free to browse the blog articles listed on the right, other information on the menu, and if you have any questions do get in touch with me.

Front coversm This is the professional text book I wrote in 2013. It is also available through Amazon and the Book Depository.

“I believe that real love and integrity are at the heart of things. Our desire for truth, reality and wholeness, to be fulfilled, social, dignified and loving beings fires in us the will to carry on, to survive traumatic events, and also the will to risk change.

“Facing unresolved trauma requires courage, determination and steadfastness, and I believe that these qualities, along with the potential for a real love of ourselves and our integrity, also lie, often dormant, at the heart of all humans. Such belief in ourselves, that we can transcend our difficulties, is the force of life that is at the heart of us, side by side with unconscious trauma. As much as we may be the victim of trauma, we are also the hero of our life, the rescuer of ourselves; we are our own knight in shining armour fighting our own dragons for the lost and imprisoned parts of ourselves.” (The Heart of Things)
