About Maaike

I am an entrepreneur, psychologist, mindfulness teacher… and in more ways than one, I am just like you.

I used to struggle a lot with anxiety. I tried to push it away, ignore it, get angry or change it. I was fighting anxiety with all my might. As I have a MA in Psychology, I used all my knowledge to try to get rid of my anxiety. It did not work.

I lived a full and exciting life, but anxiety was always there with me.

Until I started with mindfulness and meditation. With these techniques I learned that I could stop fighting. When I realised this, not only did my anxiety shift (and yes, I still have anxious thoughts, but they hold little power over me anymore), but everything in my life became easier, happier, more satisfying. Not that my life is without challenge now, but I’m able to face difficulties from a place of more steadiness and calm. It is a practice, of course, and I meditate daily, but I no longer fight my thoughts, I just don’t take them so seriously anymore.

Now I am here to say that this is possible for you, too.

Are you ready to get more control of your happiness, calm and wellbeing?

Are you ready to get real about yourself, the role that you play in creating and perpetuating anxiety and get out of your own way?

Are you ready to stand calm, strong and happy in life?

After all, isn’t being happy what life is supposed to be about?

Just so that you know, I am 110% for your success, I am no-nonsense and will provide you with accountability and tough-love when needed. I am driven by compassion and results.

Here’s how we can work together
