"Human nature is not a machine to be built after a model, and set to do exactly the work prescribed for it, but a tree, which requires to grow and develop itself on all sides, according to the tendency of the inward forces which make it a living thing." John Stuart Mill vision >


The documentary maker Linda Blagg has made an interview with me. She captured some of the most crucial moments in my life, experiences that changed my life, and transformed me. My soul's journey guided by God, love and loss - eventually leading me to Australia. 


Spiritual and Grief Counselling, Research and Writing

I am qualified through my degrees, long career, and life experiences to walk with people on their spiritual journey. I offer spiritual and grief counselling to individuals. With a specialization in chronic health conditions, oncology and palliative care (children and adults). 
As a researcher I am currently doing a Phd in innovation of spiritual care by the arts at the Free University in Amsterdam. I am also part of the research team on 'Innovation of Spiritual Care' at the Research Insitute for Health Care Improvement at the Radboud Academical Medical Centre in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. 
My passion for art is expressed in my engagement as a committee member on the Mandorla Art Award. For 2022 the Dutch magazine Volzin has commisioned me to write one article each month about contemporary art and spirituality. Finally, I am learning to play the cello - tuning in to and expressing the sound of my soul.
