My name is Irene Drexhage, born in 1986. After a lot of sports I injured my knee and went on a more inward journey. I followed education in healing, massage and to become a horse teacher and coach.
At my practice at home I guide people to come into contact with their body, feelings and energy. And I help them to release tension, pain and energy that is stuck. I find it special to descend to a deeper layer of consciousness. And love to see when people get more in contact with themselves, release what wants to flow through. The energy and your body as a compass.
Be welcome for a healing or at a women's circle.
I am a native Dutch speaker, but I do speak English (not perfect;) and have a english clientele aswell.
As a common thread I see that I have been strongly focused on my environment, in order to meet the expectations of others. To prove that I'm worth it. I've come to believe I had to do something to be good enough. Always a step harder, better and more. A snowboarding accident was a moment when I came to a standstill. This accelerated my process that I started to look inside, to feel, to (re) discover who I was. To connect with who I really am and discover that you don't have to do anything to be worth living.
Already on the "consciousness path" I became over-stimulated in a "burnout" a few years later. This has taught me to listen even better to my body. We don't have to pretend we are different. Allow yourself the freedom to explore what you enjoy and that you can really enjoy doing it and not just focus on the end goal. That is life for me.
Every day I still discover more of my own "gift". My 'high sensitivity' and sensitiveness, which I can use in my healing, women's work and with horses. I believe everyone has their own passions and contribution in this world. Every person also has self-healing ability and sometimes it is nice to be guided in addressing or discovering this.
I followed a 2-year education in healing at the Center for Life and Intuition (2016-2018) I also followed an integral massage training at the massage school Essotera (2019). In addition, I attended and followed various courses and workshops in the field of bodywork, tantra, meditation, breathwork and voice liberation.
After my study Administration and Organizational Sciences, I focused on the people in organizations and change processes. I had a windsurfing school and worked for different local governments (Sports In Amsterdam, Culture in Soest) and later in mental health care where I gained experience in guiding and coaching people.
