"Born out of love and growing towards love" is the essence of life for me. In my work, I want to lead people to their own truth. This means for me to bring them in contact with their own life task, with the life lesson they - as souls - are searching for.

To do this, you need to express what holds you back and face your own negativity. By transforming this negative material again and again and by going into the world with your love, you come in contact with what you truly want and become able to give shape to it.

Since 1982, I have a therapy practice in Nijmegen. I came from feminist therapy, working with women's issues and exclusively female clients. After a while I started with a bodywork training. From then on, my practice became more and more body oriented and psychotherapeutic. First I was trained in Bio Energetic Analysis at the N.I.B.A. - where I was a trainer for many years. Later, I was trained as a Core Energetics therapist in Berlin and completed the Post Graduate study in New York.
