About Me


In 2013 trauma healing according to the Somatic Experiencing© method of Peter Levine came on my path. I had just read his book The Tiger Awakens, when I myself had an accident and I felt that my body did exactly what Levine described in his book. I reacted the way mammals do in nature, literally shaking off the experience. At that moment I decided to follow the training at Bodymind Opleidingen. Now I teach others how they can free their bodies from unnecessary stress and tension and pick up the natural flow of a healthy life again. I combine Somatic Experiencing© with other body oriented techniques which I have learnt in the past years, thanks to the training in Body Mediated Coaching at Atma, such as haptonomy, breath coaching, focussing and constellations. I also make use of the Polyvagal theory of Stephen Porges as well as the NARM© (Neuro Affective Relational Model) developed by Larry Heller.
