OUR APPROACH / ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Our Approach:

Theories and methodologies are being utilized that support and work well with the theme of our trainings. Through Ms. Koumidou's extensive experience interweaving traditional approaches with psycho-spiritual disciplines, the following theories and modalities serve as the foundation for our programs: the theory of the Psychology of Selves and the Voice Dialogue Method created by Drs. Hal and Sidra Stone, the teachings of Meher Baba, Quantum Physics theory, and the use of dream work and energetics.

All programs are led by Yolanda Koumidou and her multi-disciplinary team of highly experienced trainers.
