An explorer of life would best describe me. I have always been searching for a deeper truth behind my experiences in this lifetime and the reason why I am here. That journey hasn’t always been easy and is still ongoing, but has gradually brought me closer to a sense of alignment with myself; to be able to express myself more authentically and vulnerably, rather than through all the filters of internal distortion and conditioning. When my explorations led me to the shores of the Openhand website, there was immediately a deep resonance and sense of coming home.
My personal journey has led to a passion for the connection between body, mind and soul, particularly all the subconscious pain, trauma and patterns that are hidden within our bodies and that are getting in the way of the natural flow of our soul. I am also fascinated by the crucial difference between approaching challenges in our lives by merely thinking about and analyzing them with our mind (which I used to be and still am very good at!) versus feeling into and working through them within our bodies. In my experience the former can easily keep us stuck spinning around in circles, whereas the latter is more likely to penetrate and break through the heart of the problem.
Unraveling my own authentic self is still work in progress and I never stop learning, but drawing upon my personal experiences and training, I now available to hold a space for others to explore their own authentic embodiment by unraveling any blockages that disrupt the natural flow of their soul, to eventually unleash the magical essence of who they truly are. Typically, I like to ‘keep things real’ and am know for my down-to-earth, no-nonsense approach to life, which includes a high level of (self-)honesty and modesty.
My facilitation sessions are based on my personal approach that I have named ‘inner growth facilitation’, which is about uncovering the natural flow of your soul, the essence of your being, through a guided and intuitive exploration, in order to establish a greater sense of authentic embodiment. It is inspired by a blend of my intuition and different techniques that I have gained over the years through different teachings and trainings. The two most influential ones being the Openhand approach and the Amanae training programme. Amanae is a type of bodywork that helps in releasing stuck emotions and incorporates intuitive touch with conscious breathing to bring the stuck emotional energy back into our consciousness so that you can work through it and let it go.
During a session, we explore and unravel internal blockages that disrupt your natural flow and break through these limiting patterns, in order to realign you with the essence of who you really are. I am also experienced in assisting clients to deal with energetic entities and implants should they emerge during a session. The emphasis during a session is on feeling into the body and what it has to tell or reveal, and less on what the mind might have to say about it. The sessions are intuitive, which means that the direction in which a session will go or where it will end is not known beforehand and thus there is no predefined outcome to work towards. It is usually not an easy ride, because diving into these blockages tends to bring up unpleasant feelings to be worked through, but is eventually very rewarding.
If my profile resonates with you, then do feel free to get in touch! I offer facilitation sessions either face-to-face in Malawi or over Skype, in both Dutch or English. Check my website for more information:

My suggested contribution per session is €60/h, but I am able to offer concessions where needed and offer significantly lower rates for those in Malawi and the rest of Africa.
