Who is Maaike?
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 had a MA in Psychology, I used all my knowledge to try to get rid of my anxiety. It did not work.
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.
This is why I created MindStrength.
Not to help you get rid of unwanted feelings or thoughts, but to give you the knowledge and resources to stop fighting and find freedom in where you are. MindStrength will help you get back your power in all aspects of life, and the Be Fearless programme is a critical element of that. All techniques in the MindStrength programmes are backed by extensive research and have been proven to be effective.
You don’t have to do this alone. And even when it is hard, know that you got this. I am with you every step of the way.
