Hi, I am Catherine, former international arbitration lawyer at one of The Netherlands’ Top Law Firms, now Energy Healer, Yogi & Mindfulness Trainer.
At 31, my deep longing for a relationship with a true soul mate, set me on the transformational path. Little did I know then, that it was about getting to know myself first.
Now at 41, after many adventures, I have transformed from being a controlled corporate lawyer to a creative soul-connected woman. I feel centred within myself and at ease around attractive men, where before I would just run away and hide.
I now work with professional women who suffer from stress and low self-esteem. Women, who, just as I, lost some parts of themselves in the masculine corporate training. I help them connect back to their feminine essence and fill themselves up from the inside out. Thus I am creating a tribe of Flourishing Women.
MORE ABOUT MY ADVENTURES
At 31, eager to solve the unknown inner issue that stood in between me and my ‘longed for soul mate’, I plunged into the unknown. I enrolled in a 4-year training at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing. A school with a mind-body approach and an emphasis on in-depth personal process.
It was fascinating! For the first time in my life, I learned how to drop into my body, feel and express my emotions, and to connect with people on a much deeper level. As a bonus, I learned how to clear out and balance people’s energy fields. Ready for a new life!
Though my journey did not end there. I was thrown into even deeper inner process by attracting chronic Lyme disease. To heal myself, I lived for 3 years in Asia and learned everything about yoga & meditation. In Indian ashrams and Thai monasteries, I learned how to center myself and be patient & compassionate with all that would come up.
Attending a tantric yoga school, I learned more about the differences between masculine and feminine energies. I started to discover the beautiful feminine qualities of flow and creativity, in contrast to my corporate training in focus and discipline.
The combination of all my adventures, completely changed my life. That nagging insecurity, that I had always had, that hole inside of me, where I felt so unloved and unseen, has filled itself. Today, underneath the daily changes, I feel happy & joyful inside for no reason, every day.
I have been extensively trained both as a Lawyer and as an Energy Healer, Yoga & Mindfulness Trainer. Here a summary, please see my LinkedIn-page for more.
