Franz Ruppert

Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Therapy (IoPT) is founded on the theories and practice developed by Professor Dr Franz Ruppert over the past 25 years, and is articulated in his books, seven of which are currently available in English, with another due in 2020.

IoPT Theory is based on a specific understanding of what trauma is, and an understanding of how early traumatic experiences fracture our identity, our sense of who we really are, and have a profound effect on our life.

Surviving trauma is a matter of psychological splitting, suppressing the feelings, and the development of distractive and avoidant strategies so as to keep the unresolved trauma experience out of conscious awareness.

There are three unspoken questions that dominate the life of the unborn, newly created child:

Am I wanted?

Am I loved?

Am I safe?

If the answer to any one of these is ‘no’, this constitutes a trauma for the helpless and utterly dependent baby.

The Intention Method is the development of Franz Ruppert as a means of accessing unconscious, split off information. The ‘constellation’ process is taken from Family Constellations, but the theory is quite different. The process that we set up is an intra-psychic process. It starts with a stated intention of the person, and allows for an exploration of the psyche.

Vivian Broughton is a psychotherapist since 1989, and has been a continuing student of Ruppert’s work since 2004. She works in London at The Centre for Healthy Autonomy, and runs an annual education course, supervision, and advanced practitioner seminars.

Vivian has edited all of the English translations of Ruppert’s books, and has written three books of her own. She works regularly in several other countries, including Singapore, Turkey, The Netherlands and Germany, and regularly visits other countries.
