Hi, thanks for connecting
I’m Irene Anggreeni, a global citizen from Indonesia.
Authentic human-to-human connecting is what drives me, and it colours everything I do. Having lived in both east and west cultures – and travelled the spaces in between – I love combining my analytical and intuitive minds.
My mission is to create wellbeing wherever it’s needed and to break taboos on mental health.
I believe we collectively grow as humanity when each person can truly live, and each individual’s wellbeing is the foundation for that.
I have overcome culture shock, existential crisis, and depression during my ex-pat journey. As a licensed creative arts therapist, wellbeing coach and consultant, I can help you.
My approach is creative, embodied (not just talk), and experience-based.
I combine practical knowledge on body psychotherapy and behaviour/mindset change so that you can develop and apply your life skills successfully.
Expat Wellbeing won Operation Launch 2018 at the Cambridge Innovation Centre in Rotterdam.
I also work with companies to prevent burnouts and (mental) ill health before they happen. Having fixed thousands of software bugs and design reworks, I value prevention way over cure!
I’m an outgoing introvert, well-regulated HSP and looking forward to connecting with you!
Irene is a very gentle coach, who made me feel safe. The physical exercises we did were very well chosen in relation to the things I wanted to learn and research. They were very insightful for me to go through and made me realize things that I would not have come to by just talking.
An ideal place for me to challenge my social anxieties, to know I am not alone, to connect, to heal and develop. It empowers me to be who I am, I don't have to be perfect.
Irene is a thoughtful leader who creates a safe environment for participants to connect with their own body, mind, and emotions. All you need to do is show up and you are guided the whole way through.
After having several years of psycho-therapy treatment, I was surprised how fast the main issues in my behaviour came to the surface and how clear things became. It’s a very practical approach to changing certain aspects in my thinking and doing.
From my initial talk with Irene, I felt immediately safe, respected and gained the courage to take the first step. I've learned to release tension and stress, and the tools to better combat these stressors through self-compassion.
Irene invited us to be ourselves and have fun! I was never able to meditate but I really like to dance, so I felt the combination of both activities really helped me.
I feel a sense of community and acceptance. As an expat this is very important to me. Highly recommended for everyone even if dancing isn’t your thing!
Having personally been going through CBT and EMDR therapy, this was my first experience of physical, embodied movement therapy. Simple, beautiful, gentle exercises produced deep shifts and movement of emotions up and out of me.
Through this individual coaching, I’ve grown more mindful and balanced.
I experience it liberating to talk about things in life that bother me within a group and combine it with movement to express these feelings. It has definitely helped me to be more verbal and to reflect on my movement too.
I love the group feeling and the sharing, and I'm glad it’s encouraged through creative exercises.
