Over the past 20 years I became interested in how to live in a way that is enjoyable and healthy for me and my environment. The deep realization the effect of persistent stress has on ourselves and our environment has moved me to start working in this area. What ways of survival do you develop and what do you really need from it here and now?  How these persistent patterns still can play out with all the painful consequences.

Out of this this interest I became a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and NARM Practioner and work with knowledge from Transactional Analysis, NLP and Systemic work. Furthermore, I am a dedicated practitioner of  Ashtanga yoga and pranayama and have a deep interest in Advaita Vedanta.
I am available to anyone with an interest in healing themselves, living in connection and living from full potential.

I live and work in Amsterdam, online and face to face.

By regularly attending courses, workshops and retreats with various (international) teachers, I keep my level up to date and continue to deepen my knowledge. SE (Somatic Experiencing) teachers were and are: Larry Heller (Phd.), Sonia Gomez (Phd.), Steve Hoskinson (Phd.) and Doris Rothbauer. NARM teachers are: Larry Heller (Phd.), Arne and Tove Mejdahl and Elisabeth Schneider-Kaiser.
My teachers at Phoenix Opleidingen were Wiebe Veenbaas, Anca Poll and Alex Lagas and
Conny ten Klooster.

Over the years I have learned (and still do) to take things step by step and learn from them and integrate slowly into increasing maturity, gentleness, strength, vibrance and presence.
