2020-03-02 08:09

Katrien was my teacher during my study of rituals and mourning guidance. It has a neuropsychic and sensitive value that is innovative and suits people who are confronted with death and sorrow. This has given me a different and positive perspective on the way I work, so that I am even more convinced that I can make a difference for others in their lives.I achieve better results and the grieving can experience happiness again.

Katrien is a unique personality with the heart on the right place. She dares to do the work many others fear doing. I have a deep respect for her and her work. I wish I had known someone like her when I lost my brother at the age of 15. She really does an amazing job. She also has the art of storytelling as a second nature.
