Food will be 1 of the highlights of the retreat. We will customize your menu for the week according to your health and personal preferences. As part of your all-inclusive retreat package, you will enjoy tasty dishes made from local and organic ingredients that are absolutely delicious. The meals are primarily dairy and gluten-free and contain no refined sugars or preservatives. We provide food with passion and care.
Since this is an all-inclusive Bali retreat, you only need to pay for personal items, groceries, and tips. If you want to add optional extra activities to your retreat package or store during your stay in Bali, there are many ATMs and money changers nearby. In addition, most stores and restaurants have credit card facilities.
We have 2 different seasons here in Bali and this is the ‘Dry’ season, April – November, which is beautifully sunny and warm during the day and balmy at night (not less than 25°C). ‘Rain’ season, November – March, welcomes warm sunny days with a daily rain shower in the late afternoon, which keeps Bali beautiful and blooming green!
Be sure to pack clothes that are loose and comfortable – comfort is key! The weather is warm year-round, so there is no need to bring warm clothing. What to bring for Bali include swimwear, flip flops/sandals, running shoes, a hat, sunglasses, a dress or two for a night out, yoga/gym clothes, light pajamas, personal toiletries, chargers for devices, bath and beach towels, sunscreen, etc….
The airport code is DPS – Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia. We provide complimentary airport transfers to and from the retreat on the first and last day of the retreat.
Absolutely!!! This is the perfect choice if you want to travel alone without being alone! I will personally wait for you at the airport and also accompany you in advance for the flight, tickets, and formalities if required.

I highly value the relationship of trust with my client.
Thus, confidentiality is first and foremost!
Generally, most issues and topics can be resolved in one or two sessions. However, some issues require several sessions, and this all depends on the topic.
I strive to work at a safe and responsible pace and with all due respect to my client.
I am trained to guide my client in the best way possible and as few sessions as necessary.
You can address almost anything you struggle with in life.
Anything that inhibits you or limits you from being happy or limits your desires for quality of life.
This can be on an emotional level, on a physical level (physical discomfort), or even on a material level.
Or perhaps in relationships with your partner, relationship with money, parents, siblings, friends.
On the day of your session, we will go through 3 stages during our time together.
During this portion, we will go through the consent form, general questions and then delve into the detail of what you wish to address in the session. We will take some time to explain what you can expect to experience during the hypnosis portion, and we will have time to answer any questions you may have. This portion takes about 30-40 minutes.
This portion usually lasts around 2 hours, where the crux of the therapeutic work will be done.
The third and last portion of the session consists of a *short* discussion. We intentionally do not go into details of the session after the hypnosis potion as you will still be processing, but we will cover key points. This may last up to 15-30 minutes or until you feel ready to leave.
You will be very much conscious and aware of what is happening. The main difference is that you will be deeply relaxed. The state is similar to daydreaming.
You will still be in total control of what you want to share and how you want to respond. You can fully communicate how you feel if you do not want to answer a question if you are too cold/hot, and anything else that may come to mind.
The experience will be the opposite of what you may have seen in some movies, where characters lose all sense of control and are under the power of the hypnotist. In hypnotherapy, you are aware and in control of what you say and do. For example, you will be aware and fully capable of rejecting anything that I may say before the session, during the session, and after the session if you do not want to participate or if you do not feel comfortable.
After the session, I will explain where the key points were during the session.
In this way, you will also get a clear picture of the process we went through.
Note: I will not go into too much detail after the session because you are in full processing mode.
I also pass on what to take into account after the session.
With that, I mean advice and tips for the coming days (nutrition, sleep, emotional well-being, what you can expect both emotionally and physically).
Sessions last 3 hours.
- Write down what topic you want to focus on – this helps the mind to focus.
- Eat before the session so that you have energy for the 3 hours you will be in session.
- Avoid drinking coffee at least 2 hours before the session.
- Avoid drinking alcohol the night before.
- Avoid taking mood-altering drugs or hallucinogenics for at least two nights prior to the date of the session.
- If you have any questions or concerns about hypnotherapy, email or WhatsApp me! Getting answers to these questions will ease your mind.
- Because hypnotherapy is most effective when relaxed, I suggest coming to the session as openly as possible, without any feeling of resistance or doubt. Commit fully to that the session with us. Some clients have relayed that they alleviated pressure and nervousness to overcome the issue by meditating prior to the session.
- A reliable internet connection
- Charged laptop/phone with good sound and camera
- A quiet, comfortable place where you won’t be disturbed, with a bed/ sofa and a blanket
- Headphones with microphones.
- Remember to turn off notifications on your devices and phones
Absolutely, online hypnotherapy is just as effective as working face to face and follows the same structured approach. It’s helpful if you are restricted by time, location, family commitments, or medical conditions, making it accessible to all.
The most crucial thing in an online session is that you are as relaxed as possible. That you trust the hypnotherapist in such a way that you can open up completely, and you are able to dive as deep as possible into the subconscious mind.
I offer a free exploratory session online that gives us the opportunity to trial the process before committing to a session.
De efficiëntie van een hypnotherapie sessie is niet gerelateerd aan het hebben van een therapeut in de kamer bij je of niet.
Met de juiste focus en connectie van de hypnotherapeut, werken online sessies geweldig!
Uit de ervaringen van mijn cliënten en mijzelf, kan ik zeggen dat online sessies net zo efficiënt zijn.
