About Green Balloon

Green Balloon is a partnership founded by John Mitchell and Vivian Broughton initially to publish the English language translations of the books of Professor Franz Ruppert and Vivian.


Green Balloon is currently known for publishing books on the approach to working with psychological trauma developed by Professor Franz Ruppert, Identity-oriented Psychotrauma Therapy (IoPT). So far we are proud to have published eight books by Professor Ruppert translated from German into English, and four books by Vivian Broughton.


Professor Ruppert's books chart the development of his theoretical thinking on the topic of psychological trauma over the past 25 years. They also chart his development of an appropriate method to working with psychological trauma, The Intention Method. 


Ruppert’s last book, My Body My Trauma My I  looks at the long term effects of early (even pre-birth) traumatisation on physical development. The proposition of this book is that all physical ailments, illnesses and structural problems are likely to have their origins in the physical adaptations required in order to survive emotional and psychological trauma. 


Our three titles by Vivian Broughton acknowledge the influence of Ruppert’s thinking on her work, giving clear and informative accounts of the origins and development of the approach, and her practical application of its methodology, including within the context of the individual session. Her latest book, due out in June 2021, attempts to be a text book on IOPT Theory and Practice.

Each full-length text is supported by a comprehensive references section.
