My life mission is to support people in stress management and inspire them to create a happy life!
Besides my own life experiences and studying I have a background in working as a manager in corporate and cultural organizations (musea, theatre, orchestra). Through yoga, meditation and NLP I have finally learned how to manage and reduce stress so that I am able to really enjoy my life! I love cooking, writing recipes, arts, playing the piano and organizing cultural events. I have been traveling a lot around the world and have visited the most beautiful locations what made it a logical step towards organizing retreats around the world. My healing practice is based in Utrecht in the Netherlands.
