My name is Jochem van der Linden. I believe that the body and our thoughts are our most beautiful possession. My passion is to help myself and others to bring the body and mind in balance and stimulate our personal development.
I am a certified Hypnotherapist, Regression therapist, Jin Shin Jyutsu therapist, Reiki therapist, Dance / movement therapist and Voice Dialogue facilitator. I am a food, herbal and plant medicine expert. I also have experience as a teacher in many of these fields.
In my own development I dedicate a lot of my time to the way of life of the jin shin jyutsu. This is the physio philosophy in which you get to know yourself completely. I have also been inspired a lot by the work of Esther Hicks and Bentinho Massaro. As a therapist I focus mainly on the good and pleasant sides and the “now”. I prefer to let my clients wrestle as little as possible through their traumas because I believe that we attract what we focus on. Good feelings will get us much more done than a rotten feelings. In this way, therapeutic sessions also work much more efficiently.
The use of Ayahuasca has also done a lot for me in accelerating my development. it has made me very strong in the way I live. Because of the large amount of journeys that I have made with this plant, I live in a state of unconditional love full of self-confidence and certainty.
As a hypnotherapist I have done a lot of research in the field of “progression” in contrast to the much applied “regression”. I use this method primarily, not do to turn my back to the past, but to completely free myself in my therapeutic possibilities. I am also inclined to let my clients fully realize their goals so that they know what we are doing and can therefore accelerate the climbing of the therapeutic ladder.
I obtained my degree in Hypnosis and Regression Therapist at the Trance-Art-Academie in The Hague, where I also worked as a teacher for 2 years.
I have had a practice in massage therapy for 7 years in Amsterdam.
Here I have experienced that the physical body is often a mirror image of how someone feels mentally. The the body responds to the mind and vice versa. In my treatments I worked on a (re)awareness of the body, which caused the forgotten traumas could come forward and, after treatment, the body could function optimally again.
I obtained my diploma in sports massage and Shiatsu massage and foot reflexology at the Veerman College in Amsterdam.
Actually I have been working on the development of my body and mind from a very early age. Through sport, yoga, meditation, conscious nutrition, dance and singing (and a good balance between relaxation and exercise) I reduce stress in my life, making me healthy and feel fit. I continually expand my knowledge by following courses and training in Western and non-Western philosophies and methods.
