Therapist and location
|I am a qualified emotion and
body therapist. I practice in particular
deep tissue massage therapy and breath therapy.
Unlike psychologists who work mainly with stories and thoughts of a client,
I investigate together with the client his/her body experiences and feelings.
Feelings and how they are handled determine - often unconsciously -
the stories, thoughts and well-being. The conscious thoughts are
the top of the iceberg.
If the client has little contact with its body and feelings,
then most of the iceberg is submerged,
unconscious, and talking will yield limited results.
The first step forward is to restore contact with the body,
after which feelings and emotions and how they are handled can be investigated.
In addition, I am a certified integrative masseur, and
I guide meditations.
I am connected to Inpulsing and a member of the Network
Integrative Massage. For recognizing medical problems that require
referring I have a medical certificate.
From 1999 onward I started giving much more attention to my emotional side.
Years of dedication to emotional bodywork, meditation,
breath work and essence work have contributed a lot to my personal development
and knowledge and experience as a therapist.
In the summer of 2005 I was engaged in an introductory week of Integrative Massage.
I was struck by the deep effect and the experience that giving a relaxation massage
can be so beautiful. I then decided to do the Integrative Massage course with
the founder, Geert van Coillie. After completing this course, I started
the massage practice. In addition to learning through experience,
I regularly follow new massage courses.
The next step was the deep tissue massage course with Geert van Coillie in 2011,
and especially the therapeutic follow-up course with Walter Geubels (Inpulsing).
Here, all relevant aspects of feelings, emotions and techniques came
together in a beautiful form of therapy, the deep tissue massage therapy.

At the next traffic lights you go straight ahead.
Then turn left at the junction 'de Hovenring' to the Heerbaan
in the direction of Veldhoven / Wintelre.
The junction 'de Hovenring' is recognizable by a huge ring floating
