Psychologist, Holistic Breathwork coach, Reiki master

I am fascinated by the power of the breath as a way to unlock the self healing potential that is inside all of us. From my acedemic background in psychology I am used to working with a mental-emotional approach on how to deal with symptoms and changing certain patterns. My own journey however, also taught me the value of additional interventions that not always involve talking. Simply by letting go of the story we can experiencing what wants to be experienced and tap into the wisdom of our body. I hereby assume that body and mind are inextricably connected. That is why I opt for a holistic approach by involving body-oriented techniques in the treatment of psychological symptoms and vice versa.

My passion is to built the bridge between my scientific background in psychology and more holistic approaches such as breathwork. That is why I have founded the first practice in Amsterdam that combines both modalities (NAP | De Nieuwe Amsterdamse Psychologenpraktijk | By reconnecting to ourselves through conscious breathing, we can take steps towards living a meaningful life.

In my work at Arkin (Mental Health Care Amsterdam) I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment based Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness and EMDR to assist people who are familiar with burn-out, anxiety, depression, addiction and trauma. This knowledge offers me a wide range of interventions to deploy during breathwork coaching, depending on what suits your personal needs.

I am convinced that every person has the power to restore the balance in themselves. At certain points in life it is helpful to ask for support. I am happy to offer you this help. You are very welcome to experience what breathwork can do for you!
