Mindfulness association
Compassion training

Mindfulness can help you to Focus on those aspects that are really important and healthy for you.
Compassion is also called Heartfulness, and is an elaborartion of Mindfulness, whereby the aim is to make contact with your Heart.
Therefore, my practice is called Focus@Heart.
Besides Mindfulness and Compassion, I also organize meditation and coaching.

Work experience

Through my extensive work experience as a re-integration counselor I came in touch with a lot of different people with different backgrounds. I was able to supervise many clients to a new (volunteer) job. Along the way, I became more interested in what drives people and what obstructs people to live their lives to their full potential. I've worked for various organizations in various projects. One of these organizations was the GGzE in Eindhoven, specialized in mental health, where I also started to work with groups. As a professional trainer at the GGzE. I gave different courses to adults with Autism and their families. One of these courses was Mindfulness.
