to de-stress."


How I Can Help You

I started my company, a start-up, and developing a product that helps people to de-stress. Stress is everywhere and a major problem in our society. Only in The Netherlands more than 1,3 million people suffer from a burn-out. Covid-19 creates an even bigger pressure on mental wellbeing. A serious issue to act up on.


The breath is the key to relaxation and I offer that through my product in such a way that relaxation is created immediately without any effort. It is a solution free of stigma and medication. More about the product in specific will follow when I am further in my product and business development.

However, if you want to work with me, I would like to hear from you. The product proved itself already during the first user research and the reviews of several experts.


I am looking for a partner that experiences the issues around stress within his / her company and is looking for ways to address this. Are you working on stress prevention or are you looking for ways that help employees with their return to

the work floor? Then let's have a talk. The creation of a better world requests

for collaboration.


Looking forward to meet you.
