    Boy In The Bubble

    Climate change. Like a repetitive drum-roll, we’ve heard the apocalyptic refrain before. As ancient glaciers disappear, polar bears drown, rivers run dry and dust bowls fill deforested wastelands, impotent politicians sit around conference tables in expensive hotels, unwilling or unable to do what needs to be done. Not everyone ...

    This Love Again

    We talk glibly of Love as if it can be bought like a bag of pastel-coloured macaroons. Or conjured up by a psychic who says, deftly spreading a well-worn deck of cards: “now let’s look at the love-life!” We talk flippantly of Love as if Love can be compartmentalised into a neat life.  As if Love is a play-thing, to put asid...

    Fiery Heart, Fiery Mind

    “All grown-ups were once children… but only few of them remember it,” wrote Antoine de Saint-Exupery.  Feeling good about ourselves despite our age, the girth of our waist, the wrinkles on our skin and owning the right to be joy-filled, whether we’re single or coupled, is something the self-help movement has focused u...

Our Stories

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light ~ Brené Brown

Ingrid Hoffman ~ Astrology, Imago Therapy, Relationships, Counselling

Meet Ingrid

I bring my lifelong interest in relationships and my own experience as wife, lover, friend, daughter and mother into my vocation. I believe that it is in our relationships with friends, family members, work colleagues and of course the ones we all invest most highly in, our intimate relationships, that we hear the song of our soul.

Our relationships are mirrors for our own growing up and the discovery of the essence of who we truly are. Over the years, I’ve explored and personally experienced many different relationship theories.

For me the very best in current thinking and authenticity is found in Imago Relationship Work and the new paradigms of sexuality and heart-to-heart connection presented in the work of Esther Perel and Hedy and Yumi Schleifer. I combine astrology and new paradigms of psychological theory.

Evolutionary astrology is my passion: how we evolve in our relationship space and how we adapt and grow in the face of challenging situations.

Ingrid Hoffman is TrueHeartWork

Experiencing empathy, the freedom to explore, trust, and insight can reset your default reactions to a more curious, tolerant, and confident stance. Because our brains are plastic, consistently positive experiences do stimulate existing neurons to adapt and connect in different pathways. Nurturing relationships help us grow psychologically and neurally in ways that are not possible in non-nurturing relationships. As adults, our most important opportunity for a nurturing relationship comes through committed partnership. It’s a breakthrough to realize that the purpose of committed relationship is not to be happy, but to heal. And then you will be happy! ~ Harville Hendricks

Understand Why

Shame, blame, disrespect, betrayal, and the withholding of affection damage the roots from which love grows. Love can only survive these injuries if they are acknowledged, healed and rare. ― Brené Brown

Why do I shut down when we feel criticised? Why have I lost my confidence in my own intuition? What happened to my inner light? Neurobiology helps make sense of this. TrueHeartWork will help you to restore the balance in your own life and rebalance the power within your relationships.

Reconnect With Yourself

In the words of Wordsworth, we come into the world ``trailing clouds of glory``, but the fire is soon extinguished, and we lose sight of the fact that we are whole, spiritual beings. We live impoverished, repetitious, unrewarding lives and blame our partners for our unhappiness. ― Harville Hendricks

We are never alone. Connect through TrueHeartWork with partners, children or work colleagues. Move past unspoken assumptions, understand their world. Be seen for who you are.

Forgive, Restore Trust And Reignite Passion

Romantic Love delivers us into the passionate arms of someone who will ultimately trigger the same frustrations we had with our parents, but for the best possible reason! Doing so brings our childhood wounds to the surface so they can be healed ― Harville Hendricks

Is your relationship in crisis, needing energy, inspiration and focus? TrueHeartWork offers you hope and the Imago tools and techniques to mend the rupture.

Cross The Threshold

Our blessing for all of us is to be able to experience the fullness and the generosity of life, and grow our capacity to hold the “glad” and the “sad” together ― Hedy and Yumi Schleifer

Your birth chart contains a blueprint of all your potential. It’s a map at threshold times in your life journey and offers a holistic approach to understanding the necessary challenges we all must face in our human experience.

Client Reflections

What I Offer

We live in a relational world and are always in relationship with one another, whether married or divorced, with siblings, friends, children or work colleagues.

I invite you to begin the work of opening your heart to true healing as you re-claim your authenticity and learn how to love yourself tenderly and consistently. I offer guidance on your life journey, based on the ancient art of astrology and the modern map offered by current psychological thinking.

But more importantly, your personal experience of who you are is heard and validated. It is my pleasure and honour to be of service to you in your journey to wholeness.

Love is a vessel that contains both security and adventure, and commitment offers one of the great luxuries of life: time. Marriage is not the end of romance, it is the beginning ~ Esther Perel
