for the woman who wants to relate intimately to her skin


Do you recognize this?

* you feel uncomfortable with societal beauty standards
* you feel you need to use make-up before you go onto the streets
* you were told to take good care of your skin, but nobody taught you how
* you question the beauty industry 
* you feel insecure about your skin, looks and appearance
* you feel lost in all the products you can choose from
* you were told there are tricks against aging
* you think about your skin a lot 

what if you can see beyond the appearance and looks of your skin....

and find deep intimacy with you skin?



1. Outer Beauty
what have you been taught about your skin? the shadows, our skin in the culture, the beauty myths, and internalization, outer beauty rituals,  relating to beauty and cultivating intimacy with our exterior

2. Inner Beauty 
our thoughts and beliefs around skin, psycho-dermatology, inner beauty rituals, radiance, natural glow, 

3. The Secret of Uniting 
uniting our inner beauty to our outer beauty to cultivate the secret of intimately relating to our skin, the polarity between inner and outer and practices to look beyond and deeper at our skin

4. Embodiment & Care
cultivating daily practices to embody a nourishing relationship to our skin, seasonal adjustments to balance the state of your skin to the outside environments, special needs to skin


why skintimacy matters so much to me...

hi love,

I want to alter the way you look at your skin. because oh, your skin is so much more than the look of it. 

your skin is that which connects your inner to your outer world, your skin is that which holds everything within.

your skin protects you ánd shows you to the world. 

and I see we can relate to our skin much deeper than we are taught to do; the relationship to your skin is deep, so profound...

I have been confused...

by all the products to choose from, 

conflicting messages of what is good, how to take best care of her...

navigating the many messages of skin conditions, conditioning and what society tells us about our skin

confused by what I should look like, what I should cover her with, how to hide her...

confused by aging, by the concepts of beauty, 

confused by the feelings in relation to my skin

my skin acting differently in different times of the months, responding to different substances, foods...


so I questioned, deeply...
and found my answers



I will support you in finding your answers...

for a long time I have been consciously concerned with holistic ways to take care of the skin that I am in

I've been conscious about beauty standards and cultural notions around the looks of skin

I find my skin one of the most interesting and intriguing parts of my human body

I have cultivated an intimate relationship with my skin; physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually

yes, your skin is unique..
and deserves unique attention, approaches and applications...

are you ready for skintimacy?




How much time will I spend on this journey?

each coaching sessions is 1,5 and each week you get to explore some practices and journaling that can take up to an hour to explore and fifteen minutes to integratively practice each day.

Will I be able to receive offline sessions?

I am based in Amsterdam most of the year where I have a private practice from which I guide and give healing sessions. All sessions can take place offline if you prefer that <3

What does a healing facial or marma session include

it is possible to have one of your sessions offline as a facial healing session or add an additionally healing session to connect deeply to your skin. I use the technique of Access Consciousness and Ayurvedic marma therapy. you can find out about it more here:

How do I start with this journey?

This is a 1 to 1 mentorship journey. With every new client I first do a 30 minute exploration session to see where you are at and to get to know each other and for me to feel you. After that we will embark on the Skintimacy journey with five sessions over the course of six weeks. We will work privately online or offline on cultivating the relationship to your skin. In five sessions we will work on inner beauty, outer beauty, the secret of uniting the two, and the embodiment to make the relationship with your skin a daily lived experience.
