Writer, designer, blogger, instigator and inspirator
I am a driven bilingual author, blogger, dream creator, earth warrior writer and roots healer (not necessarily in that order). In normal people language: I am a writer, story teller, (life) artist and coach. I wholeheartedly inspire and instigate. I was born over forty years ago in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, but since then I have experienced a lot of countries from the inside out. Most of time where English speaking countries. At the moment I live in Ireland, but given my nomadic nature you never know how long this will last. I am a widely educated person, ferocious when it comes to expanding my horizons. Blessed with an imagination without boundaries, I love to wander along unknown paths.
Wholehearted and fair
I follow my intuition and that has taken me to many places. I studied Language and Literature, Medical Basic Training, Orthomolecular Medicine, cPNI, art therapy, permaculture design, got my full teacher’s qualification, learned how to medicate, play music, draw and paint, listen to animals and the earth and much, much more. When determining in which direction I should head, I always asks herself two important questions: will I do this with all my heart and will it help creating a fairer world? That’s is quite something, but also very okay. I likes challenging myself.
They might seem random, my passions and knowledge, but they aren’t. You can read more about what drives me over here…
Words, words and more words… and everything that is left unspoken
Back to the red thread on this site: words, both written and spoken. I love language and know how to use it, but at the same realise it has its limits. Obviously, language is crucial when trying to confer a message. The most important of messages can get muddled by using the wrong words, especially when its content is hard to grasp by means of intellect alone. I use my way with words to translate instinct and intuition into information that is useful to others. It is also the very reason I started writing fiction. Fiction speaks to your imagination and thus to your subconscious. As a result, it can transfer more that the sum of its sentences.
I am a versatile writer, who, as said, refuses to stick to one particular genre. Through time a lot of my work has been published. At the moment I am working on several projects, amongst which a new childrens book, an historical novel and a non-fiction book. My focus lies with the non-fiction book. In it I describe how I managed to firmly take charge of my life, in spite of all the limiting beliefs I had inherited and learned. With this book I give you the tools to regain control over your life.
Blogs, columns and articles
Apart from all these fictional projects I also write non-fiction texts, blogs and columns on many different subjects, which have one thing in common, to wit that I care about them. Many of them are written just because I think they should to be, but I also write in commission. Looking for a blog, column, article or any other text in an area that I am knowledgeable about? Please get in touch to find out about the possibilities.
And last but not least, I regularly combine my skills and experience to inform other people. I do this by lecturing, teaching masterclasses and workshops and by offering retreats for small groups and individuals. For those of you who want information my speeches, masterclasses, workshops and retreats, please get in touch.
