What others experience

“As each day passes after the retreat, I am feeling clearer on what alignment feels like for me. It’s easier to feel things that are out of alignment, and I returned with a sense of more motivation even for small things. It’s time for big changes though and I think the session gave me a sense of ‘I’ll be ok’.

The whole retreat setup was ideal for anyone needing time out and a way to stop the outside world from drowning out your inner voice and would recommend it to anyone. I would say leave expectations at the door and go with it. I will be back!”
Alex Smith, 39, United Kingdom

” I got in connection with my inner “voice”. It was an incredible experience. The peaceful environment and the sessions during the retreat was just what I needed. You were always flexible to go with what was best for me at the moment. The support you offered was really helpful and insightful. You just did what felt right at that particular moment.”
Janine, 32, Germany. 

” There is no doubt, that I would not have experienced the breakthroughs I did if you had not been in the experience too – you being ‘in it’ allowed me to break through my inhibitions and go with it.
There was quite an unbelievable flow to everything. I describe it as a very intense therapy session with myself over the course of 3 days and I’m not quite sure how that could be replicated – I think it was quite a unique and valuable experience and journey
Einhim, 44, Ireland.

The From Thinking To Being method.

The “From Thinking To Being – Beyond the Mind” method will be applied during the various program components. It combines energetic transformation with increasing your awareness to support the deprogramming and reset of your conditioned mind and thought patterns. This is a natural process, but it is greatly enhanced by my presence in the energetic field. Energetic blockages that contribute to restlessness, limiting thoughts, overthinking, doubt, and self-criticism are gradually broken down layer by layer.

During a retreat under my guidance, you fully immerse yourself in this field where old patterns, thoughts, etc., can be cleared away. The energetic transformation and purification will take place throughout the entire retreat.

The power of a multi-day retreat lies in progressing through the various steps of the process at your pace and to much deeper levels than we can reach in a single day. From arriving and settling in at the location to feeling energetically safe to open up, to experiencing energetic transformations, and integrating the process.

If you would like support to integrate the new version of yourself on all levels of your life, I offer you an additional package where I support you for 1 year according to the From Thinking To Being method.


“The private retreat with Hélène changed my life. It was truly a magical experience! The location is beautiful, surrounded by greenery and animals, which immediately creates a sense of tranquility. The food is prepared with love and mostly comes from Hélène’s own organic garden. Hélène is an excellent host who makes sure everything is perfect. She listens without judgment and flawlessly senses what you are going through. She supports where necessary, but also gives you the space to go through your own processes. I am extremely grateful for this experience and highly recommend Hélène!” – Annemarie

“I recently did a long weekend individual retreat with Hélène and it was fantastic to relax there. The program was completely tailored to my personal needs. The location was a wonderful place where I just could be me,  do absolutely nothing for a while and just be in the moment. Hélène is a great energetic coach and we had very nice conversations that led to valuable insights. At the end of the day, I could relax in the sauna, which was wonderful. Hélène is a loving hostess and made me feel at home. I look back on the weekend with a warm feeling.” – Natascha

“Several times I came to @Hélène and every time it feels like coming home. All this thanks to the relaxing environment, the homemade food, the sauna, and of course Hélène herself. The last time during my private retreat I received an energetic head massage where Hélène guided me on a journey deep within. This has unleashed something so that the way for me as an artist is now clearer than ever. With more self-confidence I now continue my path more purposefully than ever, stating my boundaries firmly and stepping over fears every time. My heart is more open than ever, thanks to Hélène and the home she has to offer.” – Sander

“When I arrived at Hélène’s, my head was full of stories and thoughts that kept haunting me. But after just three days of retreat, I felt completely different. My head was calmer and I no longer had the tendency to keep thinking back to old stories and problems that I couldn’t distance myself from before. The conversations and treatments I had with Hélène all contributed to this. I felt safe and supported throughout the experience, and it was just what I needed to recover and recharge. Thanks!” – Sanne.

Frequently asked questions

What does a private retreat look like?

At the agreed time, you will be welcomed into your private retreat cottage. After you have settled in, we will discuss the schedule of sessions. Included in the retreat are all sessions as mentioned and explained in our introductory conversation. We will discuss which sessions are most suitable for you and when during your stay. There is no fixed program; instead, we will choose together what best fits your situation. All meals are provided during the retreat, and snacks will be available. Additionally, prior to your private retreat, you will receive an online energetic session for introduction and alignment, and a concluding exit call afterward.

Each retreat begins with an online introductory conversation, where we discuss your current situation and your needs. If desired, a guided psychedelic plant medicine journey is available as an expansion option.

You can complement your private retreat with an extensive year-long program, providing powerful support for integrating your insights and transformations in all areas of your life.

Where will I stay during my private retreat?

At the retreat center @Hélène (near Utrecht), you’ll stay fully catered in your own private retreat cottage with a living room offering fantastic views of the countryside. Additionally, you’ll have a bedroom with a double bed, a workspace/dining area, private bathroom facilities, and a kitchen. You can enjoy the garden in the summer and cozy up by the fireplace in the winter. The cottage is located at the back of the @Hélène retreat center in De Bilt, Netherlands. Easily accessible by public transport with on-site parking available.

If you’d like to receive a guided private retreat at a location of your choice, please contact me to discuss the possibilities.

How does the registration process work/how far in advance should I book?

Booking is based on the availability of the private retreat house and myself. Sometimes there is availability at short notice (mainly during the week), but you can also book further in advance (if you prefer a weekend). Feel free to contact me to coordinate when your retreat can take place.

If you’re interested, request a free introductory call with me, where I can explain my approach and we can determine together if my offering aligns with your needs.

Common reasons for not choosing a (private) retreat

1. I’m not ready yet.
Are you waiting until the pain becomes so unbearable that you hit rock bottom? Many people do, before realizing that they may need to look at life differently. But I don’t wish that upon anyone. How big is your pain (and your desire) now? Then ask yourself if it will change on its own.

2. I can do it alone or online.
Of course, you can do it alone and you’re allowed to do it alone. However, doing it alone takes much longer, you won’t see your own blind spots, and it takes much more pain and effort. So why would you? While you can find plenty of resources online, the most powerful transformations still occur when you physically immerse yourself in high frequencies, such as here at my location in my presence.

3. I’m abandoning others/my family if I choose myself.
What’s best for you is also best for everyone around you. Sometimes you need a different perspective to see that. You don’t have to drastically give up and leave everything behind to live in alignment with your true self. As they say on the airplane: put on your own oxygen mask before helping someone else!

4. I don’t have the money (for it).
How much is more peace, more confidence, and living in alignment worth to you? If you feel that my offering resonates with you and is exactly what you need, you can trust that a financial solution will come. From my side, I offer you (i) more value than can be expressed in money, (ii) the option to pay in installments, and (iii) the possibility of other forms of exchange, if you are serious about your interest in my offering but the financial means are truly insufficient. (iv) Sometimes there is the possibility to finance such an investment in your own personal and professional development from a training budget through your employer. You need to inquire about this yourself, and I can tailor an offer with a coaching trajectory and/or training

5. I don’t have time for it (now).
When you choose yourself, you’re already making a choice to invest time in yourself. Many people experience after a retreat that the energy that was stuck starts flowing, so they get on a fast track. This always gives you more time than the investment, because you start living more in alignment. For practical planning, we always look together at the most suitable dates and times, so that we also take into account, for example, your family situation.
