I currently have no availability.

My name is Renske, I’m a trained music therapist and meditation teacher. I’ve been working in healthcare for more than 10 years, in various roles and different settings assisting people in various ways. I am supportive, creative and I care about the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of others. Currently my focus is on visual impairment, dementia care and end of life care.

One thing I’ve learned is that, no one person is the same. We all have our own stories, backgrounds, our own likes and dislikes, talents and flaws, our own lives and challenges. And my challenge and passion is to help you to become the best version of yourself. Also to help you fulfil your highest potential and to help as well as inspire you to find happiness in your life.

I am reliable, honest, friendly, hard-working, and passionate about what I do. In the past I’ve worked as a live-in carer assisting adults with spinal cord injuries. I’ve worked as a project manager and care coordinator at a home care company. I’ve worked as a psychiatric nursing assistant in a psychiatric hospital. I’ve done internships as a music therapist, at various day-care centres for adults with severe mental and physical disabilities. I’ve worked as a course manager and kitchen assistant in various meditation centres. I’ve always had a passion for health (whether physical,

mental or spiritual) and for food. Before I became vegan I worked in an organic meat shop and I was co-owner of an organic fish shop. I’ve had the pleasure to work as a vegan pastry chef in an organic juice bar.

In my free time I love to cook, spend time in nature, read, write, meditate, practice yoga and play music. I am 32 years old, originally from the Netherlands but I’ve been working and living in the UK for the last 3 years.
