Exploring the Field of Internal Resources

Certified Naturotherapist. Member of AQTN (Province of Quebec) and IAHP (International) professional associations
Craniosacral Therapy and Integrative Bodywork

Craniosacral Therapy and Integrative Bodywork

Gentle hands-on approaches focused on the ability of the body to stabilize itself, to ensure it's own resilience. Facilitation of the healing process is done through minor adjustments with clear intention to level and balance.

Systemic and Family Constellations

Systemic and Family Constellations

We carry more from our ancestors and previous generations, than we usually expect. Acknowledging and therefore releasing the burden or the influences of own traumatic experience or the inherited family/ancestral patterns is in the center of the classical version of the approach.

The Path: In-Person Workshop in Montreal

Overcoming difficult circumstances is a common occurrence in many people's lives. Sometimes the transition goes relatively smoothly, in other situations we pay a high price for experiences that we would otherwise prefer to avoid.

In This Time of Change

Some of us encounter challenges that we would not even imagine recently. Others have not yet been directly exposed to major shocks, though high degree of uncertainty leads to the increase of habitual, everyday stress. 

While looking for answers we may discover that what we are seeking is not available on the level of the mind: more and more we find cues in our body. In its rapidly shifting states, involuntary reactions, sense of absence or inability to feel anything even in a seemingly usual context. Subtle body responses as well as major somatic reactions are the keys for our understanding of ourselves. We may bring the desperately needed relief through working on the level of the body, too. Ignoring it, on the other hand, brings us back to where we don’t feel, can’t enjoy life, are unable to find simple pleasures in the day-to-day life.

Internal Resources

Over the years, I focused on the theme of internal resources. Feeling supported, feeling capable of containing of what life is bringing, even if it sometimes seems overly intense or demanding. Being able to stay calm and feel safe.

With clients we work on processing the consequences of traumatic events. My practice is focused at helping to maintain internal balance, letting go of survival-based patterns that might dictate our behaviour. To assist the clients in return to a state of stability. Feeling safe in our own body – that is what brings us calm and presence. When it is missing, there’s little space left for development, and even extreme situations only give a sense of true living for short periods of time.

Therapeutic Work

Big changes affect our lives heavily. Some of the events involve us and influence the quality of our lives on profound fundamental levels. Emotional blockages. Internal states related to loss and grief. Physical and non-physical symptoms. We gradually start to see that regaining resources is vital. Therapy can serve as a support tool to regain wholeness, internal stability and resilience, and to return to the state of openness to the world and to the other people.

About the Practice

Lectures, Workshops and Programs

Lectures, Workshops and Programs

In different periods I gave lectures, facilitated workshops and lengthy programs in open groups and for organizations on three continents - in Canada, Latin America and Russia.

Long-term internal resources management programs were my major project for several years.

From time to time I offer open workshops and seminars, study groups. .

The best way to know about the upcoming open events is to follow the corresponding section of this website.

Group Facilitation and Business Story

Group Facilitation and Business Story

Before starting private therapeutic practice, I ran my own business. I led projects in the field of human resources, consulting in city development and creation of territorial strategies. My biography includes both work on enterprise reorganization projects and holding major events with international participation.



Now I again work with organizations: I conduct seminars, lectures and training programs on work with internal resources for corporate managers and specialists.

In Russia, I created and facilitated several lengthy (up to two and a half months) training programs on work with internal resources for professionals in education sector, managers in banking, petrochemical, and energy sectors. In Latin America (Colombia), I led an internal resources management event for teachers and managers in education sector.



I am interested in working on corporate projects, partly because I am quite familiar with its features, the light and dark sides. Also, I am fully aware of the contribution thats resourceful states management and working with internal resources can provide for teams and specialists.

Sound and Voice in Therapy

Sound and Voice in Therapy

Use of voice in therapy derives to the early ability of the infant or baby to return to calm, secure state, while hearing mother's lullaby. Sound therapy is used in trauma healing and in work with severe mental disabilities, besides applications focused on regaining the energy and balancing of the internal state.

Training program of Iegor Reznikoff (France), a magnificent visionary in sound therapy. Overtone singing and work with the voice, its influences in healing of mental disabilities.

Work with the voice in trainings and workshops of Sergey Krinitsyn (various workshops between 2016 and 2019).

Practical Elements of Systemic Ritual

Practical Elements of Systemic Ritual

The immaterial world. How does it affect us? Can it be of help to us?

This therapeutic modality, introduced by Daan Van Kampenhout, combines Systemic Constellation worldview with the means of work and ways of addressing the ancestral knowledge and experience, the realm of the soul, forces of nature, and the world of non-material, deriving from the worldview of Shamanism.

Trainings with Daan Van Kampenhout (founder of the approach): Systemic Ritual in Individual Sessions (continuous training,Mexico City, 2018), Systemic Ritual (Saint Petersburg, 2019). 9-month training program with Daan Van Kampenhout: The Wheel of Four Directions as an element of healing and growth in personal and professional aspects (2022)

Work with the Medicine Wheel training (2017, Moscow) by Elena Veselago.

NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming

NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming

Helping practitioners in different parts of the world begin their acquaintance with the profession from this area of work. It really provides effective tools to improve the quality of human life through work with a system of beliefs.

Passed the full certification course of Licensed NLP Practitioner in 2016 that consisted of over 100 hours of training plus 30 hours of supervised practice (WinVision training center, Montreal, Canada, trainer - Darren Miller, certified issued and signed by Dr. Richard Bandler, one of the founding fathers of Neuro Linguistic Programming).

Self Development

Self Development

Looking deep into my “I”, peering into the contexts of my clients, I clearly understand that we all bear traces of the past, traumatic or favorable environment, events, situations.

In order to be able to help others, we need to have access to our own inner universe, at least to the possible extent.

For this reason, I have continued my own individual therapy for years.

Every day I pay attention to the practices of mindfulness, for more than 10 years I have been practicing yoga daily.

In addition to “professional” seminars and training programs to enhance skills in the application of specific therapeutic modalities, I attend events related to my own non-professional, personal development. In addition to satisfying obvious professional curiosity, these activities often complement my own therapeutic work.
