Dealing with emotions
Intense emotions and feelings: often you want to get rid of them as soon as possible. Even if it works counterproductive and it only worsens the struggle you’re in. It costs a lot of energy to struggle with emotions and feelings. It can induce fretting, sleeping problems, feeling increasingly frightened or depressed, or not feeling comfortable in your own skin in general. In the long term being stuck in emotions can even lead to physical complaints. Therefore, it is important to deal with awkward emotions and feelings in a constructive way. Wondering how you can learn to do so? I’m happy to tell you all about it during the online training course ‘Dealing with emotions’.
During the online training course Dealing with emotions you gain more insight into emotions and feelings. You learn how they’re naturally connected to other aspects of your human nature, like needs and longings, instincts, thoughts and inspiration. You learn what is needed in order to experience peace in contact with emotions and feelings. And what influence you can exert on it yourself.
Combined with the online training course, you can receive additional guidance during the Individual track or the Group track. You then receive individual feedback and/or tailor-made feedback as a group during the course of 14 weeks. You can find more information on the guidance tracks in the price table further down.
This is what you need
Would you also like to find peace and balance in dealing with emotions? Are you looking for a training course that supports you in building a firm basis? Then you’ll definitely benefit from the online course ‘Dealing with emotions’, with or without additional guidance. The Dealing with emotions training course helps you with what you truly need in order to create peace and balance in your daily life:
1. A clear view on who you are: you need to get to know yourself. Who are you and what you do truly need? What keeps you awake at night? How do you deal with intense emotions? What are the underlying motives of your daily actions? Getting to know the ‘real life’ version of yourself, including all the bad habits, tricks and procrastination, gives you direction.
2. The embracement of unwanted visitors: it is necessary for you to (learn to) deal with ‘unwanted visitors’. They are the unexpected physical sensations, pain, emotions, feelings, thoughts or behavioral patters that arise as soon as you relax or sense emotions.
During the Dealing with emotions training course you not only learn why it is important to welcome them, you also learn how to do this yourself, step by step. However, there’s no need for you to start liking the unwanted visitors. In the end, the goal is to no longer chase them away. You learn to develop a mindset and behavioral patterns that help you to endure the visitors.
Whenever you’d like to know more about this: in my book The wisdom behind emotion and feeling I explain, on a deeper level, how to naturally deal with emotions and pain.
3. A smart, well-thought-out structure: once you’ve started your inner journey, you sometimes need to be able to hold on to something that guides you through the fog or difficult moments. A structure that you trust. That helps you to move on, without hurrying or skipping steps on the way. An experience-based structure that is composed based on your needs and the experiences of hundreds of people before you.
The Dealing with emotions online training course offers you such a structure. It is not always possible to maintain a clear view and simultaneously get to know yourself better. Therefore, it is often pleasant to (partially) let go of control in order to experience. This way you can gain new experiences that support you to grow from the inside out. That’s how you gradually change the way you experience your daily life.
4. Interaction with your teacher and co-students: whenever you run into questions during the online course, it would be useful to be able to ask your teacher. You can do so during the Individual track or the Group track. During these guidance tracks there is plenty of room for individual alignment, connecting to your unique personal and professional background and answering your questions.
It can also be useful to share your experiences with other students. The Group track is especially designed for this purpose. Since everyone has a different background, you can learn a lot from each other. Whenever you go through a process of change and inner growth, it is important to (continue to) express what lives inside of you. Sharing experiences is enriching for yourself but also for your co-students and teacher.
5. A notebook to write it all down: whatever it is that you’ve experienced when you deal with emotions, you need to write down your experiences. By doing so, you’re invited to observe what happens. Writing helps to let go of emotions and fears, by acknowledging them and giving them the right to exist. Writing also helps you to move beyond control issues. From the moment that you’ve written down how things have been for you, you’re able to surrender to the next moment without worrying or clinging to it.
Your notebook is your external memory. It enables you to live through processes of inner growth and to experience all sorts of unexpected feelings with it. In due time you can re-read your notes and discover patterns that you were previously unaware of.

Once you have decided that you want to deepen your insight and skills in dealing with emotions via me, you may want to opt for a guidanceÂ track during the purchase. You can choose between an Individual track or a Group track.
A guidance track offers you all the advantages of live contact: during the course of 14 weeks I tune in on who you are and what you need to develop yourself fully with help of the online training course.

In consultation, you can decide in which way you’d like to use this time: for example 30 minutes every week or 1 hour every 2 weeks. We have contact through Skype, phone or you can visit my office in the Netherlands.

Exercise twice a week in order to gain enough experiences. This way you enable yourself to actually acquire the insights and skills that you long for.
Of course, you can spend more time going through each lesson before you move on to the next. Attune to what you need and learn at your own pace.
