We offer a solution also so if an earlier therapy or coaching proved insufficiently successful

We are experts in the quick detection of the deeper cause of symptoms and problems and offer tailor-made solutions.

We regularly welcome guests who felt that previous therapy or coaching lacked perception and understanding or where the approach was insufficiently successful. In that case, in particular, we can often offer an "out of the box" solution.

After all, a permanent change takes place in your head, heart and soul. For this reason we make holistic and creative use of our wide range of therapeutic and coaching techniques

We have worked for 30 years with people who have hit a temporary wall in their life or their work. It is our aim to help you live your life freely, authentically and fully.
And in this respect we are driven to achieve the maximum result of our mutual effort.We will not settle for less. Even in the case of complex definitions of a problem.
Our strength is the quick detection of the deeper cause of a query or problem and to offer the solution.
For this reason we combine exclusive therapy and coaching with the inspiration and depth of a retreat
Which is a unique and innovative concept.
As highly experienced system therapists, we are aware that a permanent change takes place in your head, heart and soul.

Our Retreats with Exclusive Therapy & Coaching are what we consider to be our Grand Crus or Super Tuscans.

In doing so, we offer a unique 4D total concept,
that understands that your whole is more than the sum of its parts

Through these we offer a unique 4D total concept

In 30 years our knowledge and experience have matured just like good wine.

This is why we, since 2008 and as the first and only one in the Netherlands, combine our unique 4D-System Coaching with Tailor-made Retreats at our own inspirational and beautiful rural location.

You will spend a number of days in the embracing atmosphere of our centre as a welcome guest. This atmosphere is a very important element for experiencing space, stillness, comfort and privacy.

The therapy and coaching will help reduce any symptoms and do away with problems. The retreat as a whole, will give you a sense of depth, meaning and vitality.

The combination of all the above results in a special approach that actually helps you perceive the appropriate solution and experience the change you are going through.

We do our work with humour, moxie, compassion and confidence in your unlimited possibilities for growth. And gladly commit to this, using our personality, expertise and experience.

Complex matters will be reduced to their essence and simplicity in a language and with images that will touch one's heart and soul.
