Welcome to one of my workshops or retreats.
‘Your essence in one word is honesty,’ a friend of mine once said. Living in an honest way from a place of deep self-knowledge, that is real freedom to me. It takes courage, but it is so rewarding. My honesty, towards myself and others, is gentle and opening, and at the same time confronting and transforming. It is my biggest power, in life and in my way of working.
Your way of coaching is very direct, to the core. It goes deep. It moved me in many levels of my life, it is not ‘only’ about writing. Because you capture the essence with very little words.
As a coach I combine technical writing knowledge with a strong intuition and a deep love and curiosity for humanness. Participants especially appreciate the warm, accepting attention I offer to each one of them. This way I create a safe and inviting space in which talents and inner beauty can be fully expressed, and I encourage people to create this safe and accepting space within themselves.
Recently I discovered the powerful effect of dance, movement and Taoist practices on the creative process. This discovery led me to the development of my own method: earth-body writing. Earth-body writing is a grounded, practical method to make the creative energy flow freely by activating the body, connecting to the nurturing energy of the earth and writing from there.
I believe in the creating power of writing. Writing can change your life on many levels. You create your own reality and you discover yourself. Or better, you uncover yourself. As soon as I learned how to write, I wrote every day. I had a diary and invented stories full of fantasy. Now, I am so happy to be a professional writer. I wrote more than 40 children’s books (all written in Dutch, under my Belgian name Aag Vernelen)
Currently I am working on my first book for adults, based on my relationship experiences with a narcissistic man and how this was the start for me to heal old inner wounds and to journey into deep self-love.
Already as a child, I was creative, caring and very sensitive. Living in Belgium was hard for me, because of the noise and the fast rhythm of life. In 2015 I decided to go and live in Spain, in search for silence, space and sunshine. Away from the rat race, closer to myself. I fell deeply in love with Spain, and with the Spanish language.
I offer workshops and retreats in Spain, Belgium and other beautiful places in Europe.

Wat zeggen de deelnemers?
Ik voel mij nu meer in contact met mijn innerlijke schrijver.
Een aantal blokkades die er waren, zijn ‘opgelost’, heel bevrijdend.
De mist die nog over mijn schrijfdroom hing, is opgetrokken.
Ik schrijf nu elke dag!
Ik ben Aag vooral dankbaar voor de manier waarop zij de schrijfopdrachten afstemde op iedereen individueel.
Dit was een absolute meerwaarde, omdat er zo heel veel diepgang mogelijk werd. Daarenboven was de combinatie met de praktische coaching voor mij de ideale mix. Ik heb dingen geschreven waarvan ik niet wist dat ze in mij zaten.

I feel now more connected to my inner writer. Some blockages are solved, I feel very liberated. The mist that was hanging over my writing dream dissolved. I write now every day! I am especially grateful to Agatha for the way she customized the assignments for every individual. This was of great value, because it made a lot of depth possible. The combination with the practical coaching was the perfect mix for me. I have written things I didn’t know I had in me! Thanks, Agatha!
