Stories Live In Our Bodies
When we experience traumatic life events, we tell ourselves stories to survive. But unfortunately the stories our minds create often cast us in the victim's role, making us helpless bystanders in the narratives of our lives. The stories then get stuck in our bodies and we are held hostage by a multitude of draining emotions such as sadness, anger, shame, guilt, resentment and so much more.
This low-vibrational state of being can lead to a lifelong detachment from our authentic nature, making it difficult for us to experience happiness and an overall lasting sense of life satisfaction.
Hello! I'm Susan and I work with people who find themselves stuck in the above situation.
I help people to reduce stress and increase feelings of well-being, through a holistic process that helps them to free themselves from the prison of limiting thoughts and beliefs about their experiences, inspiring a change in their personal narratives and perceptions.
I'm a writer and a highly experienced trainer in the fields of writing for wellness, stress management, and meditation and mindfulness. And my heartfelt intention is to help you make peace with your past and connect with your heart's intuitive guidance, which already knows where you want to be and how to get there.
If you're keen to have less stress and more bliss in your life, take a look around and when you're ready let's dive in.
Through working with me, you can begin to heal from any life challenges and access your true vitality, authenticity, and deep life purpose.
Because ultimately... "No valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now."
Work With Me
Work With Me
My work is based on recognized areas of practice in the stress management field, and on scientifically-backed research and practice in the fields of writing for wellness, and meditation and mindfulness.
If you're feeling lost, stuck, overwhelmed, or simply want to wake up and start living a conscious and connected life you've come to the right place.
I can help you cultivate your innate power to break through limiting blocks and access your inner healing resources and true potential, through a dynamic blend of writing meditation, conscious conversation, visualization, breathwork, and the cultivation of life-enhancing practices such as, Mindfulness, Gratitude, and Compassion.
Contact me to discuss how we can work together. I offer consultations in person in the Amsterdam area, and via phone, Skype and Zoom for people across the Netherlands and around the world.
No writing or meditation experience is necessary to work with me. All you need is an open mind and a willingness to journey deeply inward.
Reach beyond the ordinary - Live the extraordinary
The Writing for Wellness workshop truly transformed my life. Not only was I looking for something to help heal the trauma from a health scare, but I was also yearning for something to help me unleash my inner writer. This workshop introduced me not only to incredible tools for healing through writing, it has also helped me find the confidence to share my work with others. This workshop has lit a spark in me that I truly believe will help me achieve my dreams of writing something meaningful, to share my story with the world. Thank you Susan for the incredible guidance!
Joining the Writing for Wellness workshop was so beneficial for me. I was especially pleased with the confidentiality of the group which helped me to open up and get the full benefit of the workshop. You were very professional and organized and you certainly knew your stuff. Your feedback on my writing was very encouraging, especially as I am embarking on a new journey in my life. I feel I now have the confidence to stand in front of a group and speak confidently, something I couldn't do previously. Thank you!
