Spreading inner peace, one person at a time.
I am a psychologist, counsellor, and coach in private practice in the center of Amsterdam.
For me it's a calling to empower people to awaken their potential for healing and personal development.
I tailor make sessions to suit the individual using everything from Western evidence-based methods to Eastern healing techniques.
I also offer groups including Stillness Retreats, Mantras & More gathering, and Tri-Energetic Trainings.
The guiding vision for all this is Tri-Energetics, a holistic system of self-discovery and and personal development.
I developed it with Rickie Moore, my beloved life partner and colleague, inspiration and friend.
My passion is leading mantra chanting groups. It's a delight to help people sing out these powerful vibrations and go deep into meditative stillness or expressive free dance.
I'm humbled and overjoyed that the mantra CDs I've recorded with the Playshop Family musicians continue to open hearts and calm minds all around the world. It's a dream come true.
