I currently provide workshops and training courses in French and Dutch.
If you’re a therapist, health/care professional or spa/wellness professionals, check out the training courses on scent experience, essential oils and aromatherapy applications at aroma.news, the Aromatherapy Learning Platform (French – Dutch).
Teaching is definitely my passion. I love working through research and literature, turning what we know and what science hasn’t figured out yet into meaningful practice for everyday life and work conditions: at the office, retail outlet and in the public space; at a wellness or spa center or in a therapist setting.
Feel free to get in touch,
