Hello! I am of Dutch origin and have lived in UK for over 22 years, I'm married with two children and am a qualified Nurse.
I have been running my award winning Holistic Therapies business since 2012, and recently qualified as an ILM Accredited Wellbeing Coach.
I am also a Chrysalis Effect'Specialist Practitioner for Chronic Exhaustive Conditions (CFS/ME, Fibromyalgia and Post-Viral Fatigue including Long-Covid) - working alongside a Specialists Team to shortcut your journey back from these conditions with specialist support and a proven Recovery Programme.
As a coach, I LOVE working with you if you are committed to creating positive change in your life and looking after your wellbeing, and I have a special interest in working with Nurses and professional women who feel they are on the edge of BURNOUT and/or have lost their motivation, drive and passion. I can help you to dig that little bit deeper, intercept the downward spiral of burnout, finding your own resources and solutions to live the life that you want to create for yourself.
I am home based (currently not mobile any longer), in the Worksop area. Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and occasionally Saturdays or evenings on request.
I also offer moving Meditation classes at "Chakradance with Femke" - classes & workshops usually take place during evenings or at a weekend.
How I work
In everything that I do, I work with the subtle energies that flow through and around us, and my aim is to create a safe and caring space for you to relax and de-stress, and enhance the body's self-healing abilities.
I offer bespoke Wellbeing Coaching Packages tailored to your needs (30 minute free Discovery Call) of which therapies can be a part (reflexology, reiki, massage and acupressure techniques including EFT).
I do also offer therapy block-bookings, as well as stand-alone sessions.
Please feel free to call or email me to ask any questions or to arrange your appointment.

Emotional Freedom Techniques
EFT is a universal healing tool (also known as 'tapping') that can provide impressive results for physical, emotional and performance issues. It operates on the premise that no matter what part of your life needs improvement, there are unresolved emotional issues in the way. This is because, for basically ALL issues, it is common knowledge that any kind of emotional stress can hinder the natural healing potential of the human body. We can use it to clear out old traumas and welcome any new challenges with a healthy, productive attitude.
