My strength is in helping you find a greater connection - with yourself, in your relationships and with the natural world around you.

A little bit of my story

I was born and raised in the Netherlands. I´m deeply grateful for my childhood and for the life I have been given. Off course it´s impossible to summarize my upbringing in one sentence, but I can say that from my mother I received an enormous strength to cope in any kind of situation, and from my father I received a great sensitivity and empathy.
I became independent from my parents when I was 16 years old. At 18, after finishing high school, I didn't know much, but I knew that I didn't want to continue in the school system that was offered to me. In other words, go to college like everyone else, and continue sitting in chairs, with my head in the books.
So I decided to go traveling. I went to Australia the first year. It was the beginning of 10 years of nomadic travels, with my backpack on my back, and doing all kinds of different jobs. I learnt a lot, about myself, about different cultures, about the natural world, and about the great human heart. To this day, I still have a very optimistic view of humanity, despite the mess we can cause as well.

At 28 I decided I needed to calm down a bit from so much movement. And I started studying Herbal Medicine.
And in 2010, when I was 30 years old, my daughter was born. My second was born in 2016. Being a mother is a full time job, which I honour deeply. My children are a priority in my life. They are my greatest teachers.

I live with my two children in the beautiful mountains of the Alpujarras, nestled at the foot of the Sierra Nevada, in southern Spain. We are blessed by the sound of the river and the views of the mountains.
I have lived in these mountains for almost 10 years now and I enjoy more and more the privilege of living in this beautiful place and being part of an incredible international community.

​​My spiritual life has always been very important to me. I keep learning, and I'm very curious. As long as I can remember I have been developing myself spiritually. I have also had wonderful teachers, and life itself continues to teach me.
In 2005 I came across Vipassana Buddhist meditation, and it opened a path of much focus and dedication. 7 years later in a time of personal transformation, I left this path, to be able to free myself even more. And to find the answers from deep within myself.
Through my personal spiritual journey, different teachers, my studies and my work experience, I have trained quite rigorously in trusting and deepening my intuition, in my capacity to receive my higher guidance and also in opening the doors of my perception.
I have learned to "listen" through my energy field and to "feel" other people's body and energy field, especially from a therapeutic point of view. I have trained my sensitivity and empathy to be able to connect with others on deep levels. This helps me personally, and also helps in my profession. It is what I can offer you.
I feel very blessed to be able to offer work that I do from my heart. And to be able to connect with my clients from empathy, and from my deep trust in the Light of each person.

Education

I have trained and specialized in Ayurvedic Massage, in Reiki, Coaching and Emotional Intelligence. I have done different courses on intuitive plant communication, and I´m a doula. I have studied at the Scottish School of Herbal Medicine and at Lincoln University.
