‘Self-discovery, mental clarity and stimulating learning skills'
Further boost your meaning-making abilities, critical thinking and gain more insight into your capacities. The concept of creativity is not strictly and simply about art, it is a shape of thought and approach to external and internal circumstance that steers adaptability in life. This means it is also applicable and so useful during hardship as part of resilience and courage. Develop further strength, self-awareness, self-confidence and feel in more control of your unfolding process to who you are: a human being with multi-faceted and layered potential. Let go of static and fixed states, attachments and concepts. Let's get moving, creating and philosophizing by building a stronger body to support the creative mind!
If perception is a conscious construct that shapes the way we see, feel and experience our life, we have to go inward and assert ourselves towards our fears, shame and conditioned response patterns. This way we create space for emotional clarity to embody open-mindedness, become more resourceful, exercise mental flexibility and get a greater sense of intuition. Creativity can be expressed in multiple forms and it often is a mirror to teach you about yourself.
We build self-awareness, self-regulation, confidence to implement healthy boundaries. When life feels more like a continuous process we are then equipped to move and adapt within different states and identities to playfully interact with our abilities and the exterior world.
Identities, narratives and core beliefs shape the lens through which we interpret information: not only what we have in our mind but even what we process (un)consciously through our physical senses. By reflecting on their origins and experimenting with different ideas we can take steps in embracing uncertainty and build something new.

With a background in psychology, coaching and personal training, I am motivated to make people more comfortable exploring their internal world and navigating external possibilities. With a philosophical, creative and mindful approach, I enjoy lifting blockages and look at creativity as both a means and an end; combining physical strength with an artistic mental approach to give a flexible and meaningful structure to life.
I am a reflective and playful being that has deep love for curiosity itself and challenging myself to learn: from practicing skills within the arts engaging in different sports, to slowly learning more from different fields of study. I paint portraits and abstract art, write poetry and short stories, and you may likely find me lifting weights, jogging and swimming.
Having lived with chronic depression for fifteen years, a lot of my outlets and forms of expression have been born out of personal survival and continuous seeking for meaning and purpose. Taking care of my body through exercise and nutrition in order to make sure there is a stronger foundation to heal deep wounds, reflecting, becoming more compassionate and learning more about the mind and world to explain the past that can stabilize an inner strength to steer into the future.
As a Zambian-Peruvian Dutchie that has lived in different countries and has moved around a lot in the Netherlands, I embrace the adaptability I am able to develop and try to apply to embracing the uniqueness of others. I believe everything in life should be seen within a context, in a relational dynamic rather than in isolation and segregated from other elements, including our inner world and interactions with our environments. Especially, for those who feel unseen and misunderstood I hope to instill a safe space where inner tools can be used and asserted; for better clarity, structure, stimulating new ways of giving meaning and being creative in the approach to obstacles. We move together, flow together and grow together through sports and arts.
Hope to hear from you soon!
