About me

“Through the mix of different workforms something unexpected and beautiful can come into being. Something that transcends the mind. A true synthesis of being human. I’m passionate about what I can offer. And find ‘Joie de vivre’ and purpose in the moments of surrender and insight.”
– Hester Hudig –

Psychosynthesis and Open Floor are the basis of my work. They make a great mix of psychology and embodied movement practice that integrates all aspects of being human; your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies.

I have a practical and intuitive approach.  I enjoy looking at life with a bit of humor too. Sometimes it’s ok not to take life so serious. Sometimes we need to play… and play is serious business.
I work with whatever presents itself in the moment. That means that every sessions can look and feel different. In our interaction and with consent, depending on what’s needed.
