During an individual online session we look at your qualities and we aim to bring healing to that which prevents you from being yourself and feeling good. Always from the heart.
You and your experience are the core of this client-centered and compassionate therapy.
We walk the path together.
Everything you need is already within you; sometimes it is helpful to have a counselor, a coach, a guide, by your side.
By (re)discovering and accentuating your inherent qualities and talents you become more and more yourself. By remembering your self-worth, your natural state of worthiness you reconnect with yourself.
We open our hearts to ourselves and start to feel again who we are, where our stability lies and what we bring to this world.
“A 1:1 online session is like a loving mirror into which we look to see those parts of ourselves that need attention.
In this way we reconnect with our natural state of being."
When we connect deeply with our inner world, we are vulnerable. That is why it is important that we experience safety; the ground under our feet. In order to create a sense of safety, we connect with each other in an atmosphere of respect and equality.
Compassion is our foundation from which we can safely explore, experience, feel, meet, love and integrate ourselves and our environment.
During our session we activate the medicine in ourselves to bring healing to those parts of ourselves that got hurt. We learn to accept them as messengers, love them as precious aspects of us, and allow them to show us the way.
We use several tools to help us on our way. The pillars here are creative therapy and emotional freedom technique (EFT).
In addition, we also rely on reflection exercises, guided meditation and healing, and inspiring home assignments. Each session is shaped by what you bring to our encounter in at that moment and the direction you want the process to take.
An important starting point for this trajectory is the drive, the desire you feel to grow, to get closer to yourself or to adjust your course. I stand by your side guiding you as you walk your path.
In the case of child counseling, it is essential that both parents or all educators support the guidance, and are also able and willing to look at themselves.

I thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
Why online sessions?
The most obvious reason is that I live in Peru, specifically in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, located in the Andes Mountains at almost 3000 meters of altitude.
I really enjoy working with people from all around the globe. I have traveled a lot myself and have opened my mind and heart in many ways towards a whole spectrum of ways of being, cultures, backgrounds, habits, perspectives, etc.
Over time I have come to appreciate online sessions more. Especially since the beginning of 2021 - when it couldn't be any other way - after 5.5 years of live sessions and workshops in various private practices (Jaspis in Dilbeek, Vitruvius in Steenokkerzeel and Monimo in Erps-Kwerps; all in Belgium).
I have followed my heart here and am more attuned to myself and abundance than ever before. That empowers me enormously in my sessions, allowing me to be a solid anchor for you.
Does an online session have the same effect as a live session?
An online session has the potential to be as powerful as a live session. It depends on what you feel good about and resonate with. The safe space we create together transcends time and distance. Acceptance, compassion, courage and all other inner qualities can be felt wherever you are.
Moreover, you will also (indirectly) connect with the place where I am, the womb of the Andes Mountains. This place breathes grounding, nature, relaxation, beauty and abundance, just to name a few qualities.
I personally experience that this contributes greatly to the success of my sessions with clients because they absorb a part of the atmosphere.
What if I try an online session and I don't like it?
That's okay. We are always allowed to experience something before deciding whether it feels right or not. That is why I offer a 20 minute discovery session if you prefer to try it out and wish for us to get to know each other first.
If you decide after our session that it is not quite what you want or need, we will close our process together in positivity.
An overview of the courses and trainings that shaped me:
Master in Psychology (VUB, Brussels, Belgium)
Clinical psychology internship with children in vulnerable situations (Fundación Alalay - La Paz, Bolivia)
Mindfulness training (Edel Maex)
Volunteering in Egypt with the local community (Bouworde vzw) and Zambia with children with visual impairment or blindness
Duplo methodology (Figuring Futures)
One year course in creative child therapy (Educatieve Academie)
Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT academy)

Parental guidance (In Bloei)
Live the connection (Core module)
Therapeutic Art Life Coaching (Udemy)
Emotional freedom technique (In Bloei)

In addition to these consciously chosen training courses, I was taught in an organic way through many experiences, such as my solo journey through Latin America and Africa, my twelve years as a ballerina, my introduction to the Native American sweat lodges and my musical training in singing and flute.
They helped me develop qualities that still help me guide people.
What, in my opinion, weighs in all
my sessions is the inner journey I undertake to heal myself.

Over the years I became more and more connected to my own experienced hurts and challenges, which invited me to dive deep within myself. This allowed the compassion in my heart to deepen and for me to become more and more myself, more free and grounded.
In that sense I also see myself as an expert by experience, but above all, as an eternal student of life.
