“Out beyond the ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there”
Rumi

Charlotte has an inquisitive and open mind, a useful quality in her work as a mindfulness trainer and psychosocial therapist. She doesn’t pretend to have the monopoly on wisdom. It’s ok to be at your wit’s end and learn from life. During the sessions she explores how you experience life. What is your truth, experience, force, grieve, talent, pain, confusion or desire? Together you’ll find out how you can create space and shape for the different aspects of your life.

‘I have an inquiring character. Always had it. I do not easily take something for granted. I prefer to look at it myself and experience, investigate so I can define my own path. I haven’t been a therapist for all my life. My career started of in the commercial sector and my final job was manager at ‘Joop van den Ende’. Instructive, dynamic and very nice but at a certain point I noticed that I wasn’t inspired by the business part of it. On the other hand, coaching and supporting my colleagues gave me a burst of energy and satisfaction. This was what I really wanted to do! I changed my course being 29th years old and re-skilled myself in being a psychosocial therapist and mindfulness trainer. In my work I bring a lot of life experience, attention & time and I’m always present with an open heart.
