A special note for people with anxiety, stress and burn-out problems: I collaborate with Tessa Nagtegaal, Psychologist and Relaxation Therapist. She gives Relaxation training in individual or group sessions in Amsterdam.
Relaxation training is a form of therapy primarily focus on establishing more and complete relaxation in the body-mind through body-awareness exercises, progressive and autogenic training. These tools help you to have an experience of loosening and releasing tensions and emotions. You will feel more able to understand how you accumulate stress and to release it.
Tessa is a Dutch and English speaking psychologist, relaxation specialist, masseuse and meditation facilitator.
She has lived the expat-life 10 years ago in New Delhi, India and since her return to Amsterdam, the Netherlands has always found herself naturally surrounded by an international group of people.
Tessa is also an Emotional Release Therapist and a member of the Dutch professional association BATC, through which her alternative healthcare sessions can partially be refunded by Dutch health insurance companies.

Testimonials about Relaxation Therapy:
Where shall I start? All classes were special in their own way. I still use some of the excercises that we did on my way to work, very relaxing. I've had a few intense personal experiences during deep relaxation which was very special for me. Your soft voice and guidance is very pleasant.
Thank you for everything I've learned during the meditation sessions. I especially loved the meditation based on the senses and the muscle relaxation exercises.
I liked the meditation about breathing the most. I found it easier to be focused on something, while usually for me it is difficult (or almost impossible) to be concentrated. Overall, I really like the sessions and how they were organized. I enjoyed the experience.
I really enjoyed the energy the class brought. Also the songs at the end of the class were wonderful. The way you managed the class really brought me closer to myself and really touched me deeply.
To decide to do something about my stress, headaches and body-aches and to make time for this was the first big step. During the first sessions I saw how bad it had actually become and later I could start making some small changes and gradually started being able to relax during the sessions. Especially the relaxation exercises were very helpful and I'm still using them. The people around me have seen me change and I'm really happy to have made this decision.
