Who Am I?
A Few Words About Me
As a therapist and artist, I look at the emotional and expressive content behind non-verbal interaction. Emotion is felt and expressed in motion. One connects with the other. At the core of any therapeutic process there is also an artistic and creative outcome. While in therapy with me you are invited to gently explore your sense of self and your identity experienced when feeling/thinking/moving and watching the reality we all share. Creativity in therapy is for me intended as an encounter with our world in connection with the influences we get from our surroundings.
The body in movement or stillness carries meaning and tells us a story. Whatever sitting, walking, standing, awake or asleep, our body is the medium to our life journey and our daily self expression. Understanding the body and mind connection can give us access to a deep understanding of who we are. Movement is for me the greatest manifestation of the body and mind connection of the inner and intimate creativity that resides in our bodies.
What I am busy with
I am currently working in my private practice in the Hague two days per week. Meanwhile, I teach movement improvisation to amateur dancers in the Hague and Utrecht. In case you are interested in my dance classes, you can read more about them on my website Scaringella Dance.
I also worked as a performer and educator, coordinator, and coach for an inclusive dance company for dancers with and without disabilities in Rotterdam: Misiconidance.
