Hannah (Betty) Idarius

Betty IdariusHannah is the director of Process Coaching Center. She lives in Ukiah, CA, where she practices as a classical homeopath, process coach and teacher, and constellation facilitator.

Her background includes 30 years working with pregnant women and their families as a homebirth midwife, counselor, and educator. With a focus on empowering women to trust in their innate abilities to birth and parent wisely, Hannah dedicated herself to fostering an experience of birth that was gentle, supportive, and honoring of the sacred. She was one of the pioneers of waterbirth in the U.S. and is featured in the documentary Waterbabies.


In 1983, following her desire to understand the fundamentals of effective healing communication she co-founded with her husband The Oregon Center of Neuro-Linguistic Programming in Eugene, Oregon. Together, they worked with John Grinder, one of the originators of NLP, and his trainers, offering certification trainings in NLP, hypnosis using NLP, and modeling. She is certified as a Master Practitioner of the Art of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and a Practitioner of Hypnosis using Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

Homeopathic medicine presented itself as an ally in her quest of natural health and healing. Hannah graduated from the Pacific Academy of Homeopathic Medicine in 1995, and continued her studies with homeopathic masters worldwide. Her special interest has been women and children's health. She is the author of The Homeopathic Childbirth Manual: A Practical Guide for Labor, Birth, and the Immediate Postpartum Period.

Hannah also has extensive training and experience in rebirthing, gestalt therapy, bodywork synthesizing Feldenkreis, Alexander bodywork and Gestalt Therapy, Constellation Work and indigenous wisdom and shamanic practices.

In order to heal deeper parts of herself, she began working with John Pateros in 2001. In Process Coaching she found the tools needed to Heal to Wholeness. She was certified as a Process Coach in 2003, and in 2007 was certified as a Process Coaching teacher. Her passion is bringing unconditional loving acceptance to the deepest feeling parts of self, and helping others do the same. She offers individual process coaching sessions and relationship coaching for couples, as well as classes in becoming your own healing practitioner. 


"I came to Process Coaching during a spiritual crisis where it felt like the entire foundation of my life was crumbling. This was an all too familiar occurrence, and I knew I had to get to the bottom of it, or there wouldn’t be any will to continue with my life, and certainly not with any possibility of pleasure or meaning. In other words, I was lost in hell without a lifeline.

As the child of survivors of the holocaust, it has been my life’s purpose to find my way through and bring healing to that trauma. Process Coaching has given me the venue for bringing resources to the most lost parts in creation, those parts that have experienced intense suffering. The depth of the work touches those deep transpersonal wounds like nothing else I’ve ever experienced. Finally real transformation is happening not just for me at the personal level, but at the level of the larger universe that we are all channeling.

I am an adventurer who loves to explore and discover new territory of generating a world from the inside out where there is no longer any suffering, a world that feels wonderful to be a part of, where real love exists, and where we are each free to follow and manifest our deepest dreams, our deepest desire."
