My Professional Background
I’m a graduate of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (HvA), where I studied Physical Therapy. I’ve facilitated thousands of treatment sessions with patients in various sectors of the Dutch healthcare industry, including private practices, rehabilitation centers, a hospice and the VU University Medical Center Amsterdam.
As a teacher, I’ve facilitated courses and workshops for students of universities in Amsterdam (UvA), Utrecht (UU) and Eindhoven (TU). In addition, I’ve provided individual coaching for clients employed by Accenture, Amsterdam University (VU) and the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture & Science (OCW).
I have a keen interest in holistic approaches to health and well-being and I’ve studied systemic therapy (constellation work) in the lineage of Bert Hellinger. I also created the Integral Flourishing courses (Part 1 & Part 2) for the international online education platform Ubiquity University, as well as The Essence of Integral Flourishing course for Integral Life.
Together with Nomali Perera, I founded Practical Integral. Nomali and I regularly host live online sessions for Integral Life.
Together with Jeff Salzman, podcast host of The Daily Evolver, Nomali and I have also produced a series of videos about human development.
Below are three videos in which Nomali and I discuss how to optimize our physical, mental and spiritual health.
