ESTI Newsletter 1 of 2022


Greetings Ego State Therapy colleagues and friends,

I am delighted to finally be getting this edition of the ESTI newsletter out to you.  The passing of Maggie Phillips left a huge void in our Ego State Therapy community, including the need for a new ESTI newsletter editor, and I have assumed that role.  For those who don’t know me, Maggie did an interview with me a few years ago for the newsletter which can be found here: ESTI Newsletter Interview with Wendy, 2020.  Or, you can read my biography listed on my website (which is always a work in progress and in need of updates) at

Thank you to all who have assisted with this edition. I couldn’t have done it without you, and please know that I will need your assistance and contributions for future issues.  Please send contributions for future issues to me:  Wendy Lemke at

So much has gone on in the last few years and we continue to have turmoil around the globe.  If only our world leaders could know, understand, and implement the ego state therapy principles that help so many of our clients with their own internal warfare.  This edition’s bonus box includes a link to an iMovie I made a few years ago given the divisive situation of our country at the time.  Sadly, not much has changed, and we still need assistance in ending internal as well as external warfare.  I hope you enjoy the clip and this issue of our ESTI newsletter. There is much to read about what has been happening in our EST community around the globe.  As Helen Keller states, “Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.”

Greetings once again Ego State Therapy colleagues and friends,

Please view this brief addendum to the newsletter.  

Unfortunately, I missed Germany’s report of their news and wanted you to receive it before the next newsletter issue will be sent out. My apologies to Susanne Leutner for missing her submission. 

I am also hoping someone would be willing to write a review of Elfie Cronauer and Susanne Leutner’ s book Traumatherapie-Kompass for the next issue which I hope to get out in December.  The book is written in German. Please let me know if you are interested. Whoever agrees will get a free e-copy. 

For all future newsletter submissions please email me at and please cc my assistant at as she will be helping gather and organize information for future newsletters.  Hopefully, this will prevent me from missing any submissions in the future! 

Thank you for reading this addition and I hope to see many of you soon in South Africa.

Wendy Lemke, MS LP,  ESTI Newsletter editor
