Being and Becoming 

Personal guidance

Explore a one-on-one session or a series of 5 sessions with Katrien. A time in which you'll have all the space to dive deep into the core of your being, and discover what is seeking your attention for growth and healing. 

Katrien has a honest approach to reveal your blind spots in a way that gives acces to discover new insights that can immediately shift the way you think and feel.


She guides business leaders in becoming empowered embodied leaders by dedicated support to responsibly open their inner world, in the outer reality. The sessions have proven to awaken people's inner listening which contributes to hearing the essential needs, and capacity and process to create the change.  

A session can also assist to resolve issues such as anxiety, pain, trauma, anger, mental problems, self-worth issues, depression, relationship issues, eating disorders, negative patterns & beliefs, addictions, blockages in moving forward, and many other problems. 

Katrien's intention is to work with the whole person; the body, intelligence and intuition. Through a systemic approach, and therapeutic set and setting she offers strong guidance and support to re-align yourself with your life's purpose. A session or series is a relational process of self-discovery.

Part of our process will be dedicated to the power of your own breathing, that many have experienced as a doorway into freedom that no talking therapy was able to offer them.

In a full diaphragmatic and circular way, breathwork influences the chemistry in the the organism in such a way, that blocked energy associated to traumatic memories, can be released and can become available for discharge and processing. This sense-making process highly involves systems learning. Your own - and the system in society, your role, purpose, goals, expectation, and life's negotiations. 


We will breathe at an ‘edge’ in a circular way, allowing the unconscious limited breath patterns to be surrendered. This will allow you to experience a deep emotional and physical joy, relaxation and rejuvenation. It also can bring an explosion of insights, clarity and creativity. Even after one session.


Breathwork: A Psychology of Awakening

Breath work is about real participation and gives us an opportunity to drop our masks – and be in real connection with ourselves and others. The not-knowing becomes the beginning of your adventure.


As we will work with the breath, we will automatically work with the body, essentially updating the nervous system, and reconnecting that with the brain. They are not separate. As you breathe and relax into what’s arising, you have an opportunity to embrace all aspects of Self. It is through surrendering resistance (ego) that we make space for the heart. True feelings and emotions will receive space to be expressed, and the closed shadow areas in the body (subconscious), will open up.

We will consciously activate these mechanisms and slowly open up to a supported and safe environment where you can attentively feel in what is presenting itself and wants to balance itself. What was unexpressed and held in the body comes into conscious awareness where you can face it with wisdom. Hidden aspects of self, both positive and negative will be revealed.


When old tensions find their expression, you will have access to the natural joy that arises. It is a total reset for the body and mind, and can be a profound healing and empowering experience.

As we investigate the underlying patterns and needs that will reveal itself, we will learn how it affects your well-being. What is the ground you stand on? Where are you in life? and where do you need to go when you open up? We welcome opportunities to face anxiety and the lack of grounded solidity.

powerful and unique experiences of my life.
