As an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner, I specialise in preventative and lifestyle medicine, trained to provide individual coaching and counseling sessions. Not only do I focus on preventative Ayurvedic medicine but also on Clinical Medicine assisting those who are sick with mild, moderate, or serious disease. I help my clients to manage physical and emotional imbalance in a holistic way, using different ayurvedic therapies, dietary and lifestyle recommendations. I integrate yoga, meditation, bija mantras, pranayama, ayurvedic herbs, colour and aroma therapy in my treatments and recommendations. 

My holistic approach  to health will help you understand how all areas of your life are connected. I coach clients to understand their Ayurvedic constitution and what causes their imbalance or current state of health and how they can heal their life. We explore together  what lifestyle is best  and then look at  basic improvements and implement gradual changes during our work together. As these pieces accumulate, my clients find the changes collectively create a much larger impact than they originally expected. I not only work on what you want to improve, but also take into account the circumstances of your unique situation and Ayurvedic constitution. Most of all I will empower you to understand yourself. Enabling you to navigate through life with love and compassion and so to serve your highest self. 

After a couple of years living abroad, I now live in the Hague again since 2019 with my husband Dennis and two kids, Gaia and Diego. I worked in corporate world for more than 17 years en managed my own yoga studio from 2010 to 2017. Since 2015 I work as Holistic Health Coach next to teaching yoga classes. My own imbalance in body and mind has led to the ancient Vedic knowledge of Ayurveda and Yoga. I am so grateful for this.
