I am a dedicated and resilient practitioner who has undergone a journey of self-discovery and growth. After facing challenges in my personal life, I realized that my past childhood traumas were affecting my relationships and overall sense of self. Through a combination of therapy, art, living in nature, and martial arts, I was able to awaken my authentic self and begin to understand my patterns and coping mechanisms.
I have since trained in Dr. Gabor Mate's intensive psychotherapeutic approach, Compassionate Inquiry, and now work as a CI practitioner in trauma-informed care through my organization, EODV.
In addition, I am a proud father of three sons and run a UKF Close Combat Kenpo school, as well as part-time work in homeless care in Utrecht.
I approach each day with curiosity, knowing that self-discovery and growth is a lifetime journey.
