Event host & therapist
Ans created Amani House Hout Bay, in a suburb of Cape Town, South Africa. Ans’s vision was to build a sustainable retreat, respecting the landscape, culture, and climate of its surroundings where people can come to recharge from their busy lives. The property consists of a main house with a “living roof,” a natural swimming pool, a vegetable garden, fruit orchard, green house, a chakra garden, labyrinth, and medicine wheel.
Passionate about helping people overcoming their limitations and fears, Ans uses EMDR, Regression Therapy, NLP, EFT, and energy work. Ans combines these healing modalities to create a custom treatment plan for her clients. Ans received her degree in “Poly-energetische” therapy from the Academie voor Poly-Energetische Therapie (now known as Vermeulen Opleiding and Vorming) in Amersfoort, The Netherlands. Poly-Energetische therapy a is multidisciplinary approach to alternative ways to healing one’s spirit.
Qualified as an art teacher, Ans used her degree to teach adults how to turn items found in nature into decorations for their home. She designed stencils for a craft company and lead interactive demonstrations on how to use their products. Ans is a published author, has written ten books on DIY decorations and was a monthly contributor for several Dutch magazines including Seasons.
Having faced her fair share of obstacles in life, Ans is passionate about helping others find their purpose and happiness.
