Hey! I am Jellis Vaes, a licensed trauma therapist, adventurer, and CEO/founder of The IPS Project, an educational platform on life.
The platform was formed out of my struggles with my own demons—loneliness and suicidal thoughts. In essence, I have created a platform I wish had existed when I was struggling with my problems.
On The IPS Project, you can find practical articles, online courses, events, a regular podcast, and other sources of knowledge about life topics such as mental health, relationships, the workings of the mind, etc.—topics most of us learn little to nothing about while growing up.
If you’d like to read the more in-depth story of why I created The IPS Project, have a look at the ABOUT page.
When I am not holding therapy sessions or working on The IPS Project, you’ll likely find me out in the mountains or traveling somewhere with my camera in hand. I am an avid adventurer firmly into alpinism, and a passionate travel & adventure photographer/videographer.
I am a licensed trauma therapist trained in CBT and somatic experiencing. Currently, I am not accepting new clients. The moment I do, you will read about it here. However, so as not to keep you hanging, do have a look first at the courses I have created on The IPS Academy; there are also courses from our other professional instructors. You will very likely find an excellent course that will help you with what you are currently facing.
