The Next Step – Voice Dialogue Intensive

July 12 – 18, 2015 at Lago di Varese in Italy – all levels

A lot has happened since our first conference in 1983. Voice Dialogue and the Psychology of Selves have become increasingly popular in the world. It is gratifying to see the work spreading into many areas, such as business coaching and training, systems of body work, spiritual disciplines, and a variety of approaches to therapy and counselling. Inner Critics, the Inner Child, Pushers, Pleasers and many other similar terms have become household words.

As wonderful as this is, the downside is that the work can become superficial, and that it loses the connection with the Psychology of Selves and Transformational Psychology from which it derives.

The Next Step in Voice Dialogue for me means working creatively with the underlying principles of the work and deepening the connection with its roots, the Psychology of Selves and transformational psychology. See here the experiences of participants of last years program. We have a strong international staff, led by Robert Stamboliev. more

Voice Dialogue and Transformational Psychology Training program

“Tuning of yourself as an instrument”



With Robert Stamboliev MA, Maria Daniels, Elmer Goudsmit Ph.D., Ruud Zuurman

Voice Dialogue is a unique, elegant and highly effective method in coaching and therapy. It results in more insight, a better communication, more vitality and the ability to make better and more fitting choices.

Voice Dialogue is a dialogue with our inner voices. These voices belong to the various parts of our personality: our selves or sub-personalities. Each of these selves has its own way of thinking, feeling, behaviour and observation. Often we identify with one or more Subpersonalities, with which we have learnt to survive, our so-called “primary selves”, while other parts of us try to let themselves be heard in vain. Once they are able to express themselves they each have a lot to say in their own specific way. more

Voice Dialogue Intensive

‘The deeper you go, the more real it gets’

Voice Dialogue Intensives are intensely exciting trainings that provide unparalleled opportunities for intensive learning and real growth – a time to explore one’s inner world as well as to learn the Voice Dialogue process. The trainings come in different formats. The all levels intensives are open to participants with different levels of familiarity with the work. Whereas the Level II and advancedintensives are open to participants with enough working experience with Voice Dialogue.

The intensive character of the work is mirrored by its number of trainers. There will be at least 1 trainer on every 4 participants. This way of working gives abundant opportunity for personal work and indepth coaching. It also guarantees that each participant can work on his or her level. The intensives will be held in our comfortable ITP residence, nicely situated in the lovely village Bergen, in a beautiful coastal region in the Netherlands. The advanced intensives are residential and will be held on various locations throughout Europe. more

Linkage training, what connects people and drives them apart

“Connection, that’s the question”


Weekend training about what connects people and what drives them apart

Led by Robert Stamboliev and Maria Daniels

“He and I really click”.

“She seems to radiate negativity”

“It feels like we’ve known each other for years”

“She is such a warm person”

You hear yourself say it. You hear people around you say it. And we’re all talking about the same thing: what contact with another person feels like. It’s usually an unconscious feeling and it happens on every level; in love, family life, friendship and at work. In this context it’s popularly called energy. Energy that can be felt and recognised in many different ways. Especially if you pay more and careful attention to it. more

Heart matters

Dear friends,

The recent period was a special period for me. As some of you already know I had a heart attack beginning of November. This was a forceful but also extraordinary experience. Of course I was shocked, but the support afterwards was heartwarming.

In the meantime I am doing fine again, in fact better than before. What was special was that in the weeks before the heart attack I was feeling quite strange. I had no physical complaints, but felt emotional and had difficulty concentrating on daily routines  such as doing errands. I also had the feeling for a while to have a medical examination, in fact I spoke about this with some friends and searched the internet for possibilities. Good lesson: listen to your intuition!


Personal coaching

In personal coaching you receive intensive personal support for a limited period of time. The nature and duration of this support will be tailored to your specific personal and professional situation. In the first session you will be offered a diagnosis on the basis of transformational psychology. It will become clear which vital theme is topical for you at this moment. You will acquire insight into the ongoing process and be given advice about number of sessions needed and the right attitude and position.

Generally speaking, three to six sessions will suffice to obtain lasting results. The following topics may be a reason to look for personal coaching support: more

Voice Dialogue Day – Freedom from the known

With a little help from your Voice Dialogue friends

I would like to invite you to the Voice Dialogue Day on 21 June. This day for our network will take place in Blooming in Bergen NH, Netherlands; from 2 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. 21 June is also solstice. This is a time of creativity, of abundant energy, while we simultaneously experience the roundness and fullness of midsummer.

The theme is: FREEDOM.

This theme is topical for many. For me personally, the theme of Freedom was the start of my awareness process and a leitmotiv in my life. At the age of 16, I was given a book by Krishnamurti, titled: Freedom from the known. I was completely gripped by it and it led to entire study weekends in bed, where I observed my thought process, determined to fathom the mystery. Although this was sometimes hard to combine with my daily life – they seemed like two different worlds, which I only learned to connect later on through VD – it eventually resulted in a breakthrough that formed the basis for my later work as a trainer and therapist. more

On the transformation of the Inner Critic

How to turn a bully into an ally.

Would it not be perfect if we, as human beings, would not hesitate to demonstrate our strength, and say wholeheartedly what we stand for in life, and would not be embarrassed either to show our sensitivities and vulnerabilities? Would it not be wonderful to just be in the world with open-mindedness and without prejudice, in order to simply let in ‘that which is’, feel it, think about it and discuss it with each other?

Teaching facilitation: a framework

transformational psychology and language as the grounding for methods

by Anneloes Welling-Maassen


Many methods for coaching, mentoring and therapy can be understood and taught effectively using the framework “teaching facilitation”, which I have developed during the years that I have been working as a doctor, coach and trainer in communication skills. In this article I will describe how the framework is built. The concept of transformational psychology, in which the body takes an important place, is connected to a specific way of working with language by means of the “theatre of consciousness”. Based on this connection the framework consists of three layers:

- language
- model of consciousness of transformational psychology
- body

The insights and skills belonging to each layer can be taught and trained. This combination gives a solid base for learning diverse methods of coaching, mentoring and therapy, several of which are discussed below.

Sustainability or quick-fix?

The broad social discussion on sustainability, which is being held in many segments of society (sources of energy, banks, food), also applies to the world of coaching, training and therapy. Here, we also ask ourselves: is it about sustainability or a quick-fix, a path with a heart or a methodology, your own inspiration or certification, creativity or protocol? more
