Over / Bio
Psychedelic therapy Amsterdam
I am located in Amsterdam and offer Spiritual Coaching, also with use of (legal) psychedelics. I work with people who want to get to know themselves at a deeper level, connect to emotions and get extra insights. I bridge spiritual and practical, combining work on intuition and subconscious with practical goals and intentions setting. Sessions are customized to each individual’s goals, needs, and journey. Flexible hours, sometimes also weekends; also online sessions.
Being professionally trained as a Spiritual Coach, and studying Psychedelics and expanded states of consciousness, I am combining the art of using my intuition, listening, empathy and caring.
These are fruits of a journey that started years ago, when I faced quite a few challenges in my life. When certainties turned into question marks, I understood that I had to search, surrender and trust. What helped me and saved me were trips to India, Bali, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Mexico, Peru and Egypt, where I attended spiritual retreats, practiced yoga and meditation, took part in rituals and learnt from wonderful teachers. I have also taken part in plant ceremonies, experiencing incredible journeys within my inner self and reaching out to beautiful and fascinating dimensions.
Since I have developed my knowledge and passion towards healing potentials of psychedelics, I truly believe that within the right set and settings, with a proper preparation and integration, those substances can help us understand ourselves better and open possibilities of inner growth and creativity.
My private Practice - 'Hero’s Journey' offers different modalities of working with these substances (exploration talks, macrodosing, mini doses or journeying 1-2 days retreats). If you book your free intake call, you will be able to further explore and ask questions to best choose the method that seems suitable for you and will make you feel comfortable.
Psychedelics are not the only method of my work - you are most welcome to join me for "regular" spiritual coaching sessions.

Meer over werkwijze
The mission of my work is to help you to connect with who you truly are, plant a seed of transformation, uncover desires, and work towards goals by identifying dreams, breaking down old patterns and limiting beliefs, and removing blockages.
Reach out to a dimension of love, compassion, responsibility and actions. Find your Purpose – in terms of doing what you love, surrounding yourself with the right people and making conscious responsible choices. By transforming yourself, you will inspire others and create a better world in the future.
In an atmosphere of safety and trust, I will be your listener, guide and messenger. I will be there to support, inspire, provide feedback and keep you accountable.
We will mainly use intuition but reasoning and strategy will be valuable tools as well. Exercises and methods will be implemented, and we will work with your own beliefs, decision-making and actions, and I will never try to tell you what to do or convert you to a different religious or spiritual belief.
To help you transition into new mindful thinking and changed behaviour, techniques such as manifestation, visualisation and energy work will be used.
If you are curious and open to it, use of legal psychedelics can be implemented to the coaching process. We will first do evaluate your readiness and talk about benefits and contraindications.
When embarking on your Hero’s Journey Coaching with Psychedelics:
- You will learn important facts about various types of psychedelics so that you can understand differences in modalities and legality of use, and explore your options.
- I will guide you through the benefits, implications and contraindications with you so that you can choose a safe, legal and most suitable way of doing it.
- During a consultation you will be able to ask questions so that you will know better how to prepare and what to expect during your psychedelic journey.
- You will receive coaching on your struggles and desires and explore how psychedelics can help you.
In full confidentiality, you will have an opportunity to decide on the right method for you and explore places and solutions that will be suitable for you with your coach.
- With Hero’s Journey, you will stay in a controlled environment where you will know you are not alone, feel safe and supported.
Knowing that you are not alone will make it easier to let go, trust and surrender. Your guide will be there for you to reassure you that “you are OK” and nothing bad will happen, support you with what is needed during the journey.
You will not only deep dive to get to know yourself better, but also have fun, listen to beautiful music and, if you are open to it, include other elements such as oracle cards, herbs and oils, chakras work, meditative preparations and more.
After the session, you will integrate your experience and address anything that comes up, be able to implement the learnings into practical life, and receive further support and guidance.

"Magda is one of the most deeply intuitive people I’ve ever known. Her coaching comes from the heart as she gently guides you into deeper levels of self-realization. She has a rare, mystical connection with the tarot that enriches more traditional coaching methods, and guides the client toward new perspectives. She has mastered the skills of standard coaching and successfully integrated them with her own gifts and talents. Magda facilitates change and progress in a unique and beautiful way. I would recommend anyone wishing to move forward in their lives to seek her out."

For the journey I entered a beautiful and comfortable place, set up with cozy lights, flowers, and music. I felt that Magda was really there to support, and after the journey she prepared a beautiful plate with different fruits and chocolate. I am grateful for the journey. Anonymous, The Netherlands
'I’ve been having sessions with Magda for some months now and really enjoy going to see her. I wasn’t sure exactly what a spiritual coach would do in the sessions but was open to try something. After finishing a mindfulness course, which i found very beneficial, I wanted to carry on searching for calm. Magda uses many techniques and we often decided on the day what would be best suited to an issue i was having at that moment. From calming energy balancing meditations to discussing and helping with issues about work, family, relationships and aspirations. Magda helped look at things from another perspective and I always left feeling a little lighter and a bit more confident about plans and decisions."
David, Hairstylist, The Netherlands
'I really enjoyed working with Magda. She has the ability to make me see things from a different perspective. With the tools she used, I was able to manoeuvre through a difficult period of my life. I am truly grateful for her guidance, encouragement and wisdom and would recommend Magda to anyone who seek in finding their life purpose in an empowered way." Herlina, Entrepreneur, Singapore
'I enjoyed Magda being my coach because of her ability to see me. Her kindhearted presence and gentle spirit made me feel incredibly comfortable during our sessions together. She also kept me on track and made the process flow easier. I would recommend Magda as a spiritual coach because she epitomizes inner peace and wisdom. Thank you Magda for supporting me and creating an unforgettable experience that I will hold dear to my heart.' Kompani, Nurse transitioned into Spiritual Calling, The United States
'With Magda’s guidance I have recognised what my life goals are and how to achieve them. I have found the resources within me to overcome mental barriers and doubts. I have reconnected with my spiritual side, which has provided inner strength. I highly recommend Magda to anyone who is feeling doubts and fears or who is struggling to find their path in life." Rachel, Psychotherapist, United Kingdom
"I am thankful to Magda for finding my mission. Things have not been that easy, but I finally found something that I like spending my time on. I understood that dogs make me happy and I feel they need me, they are my pill against all my difficulties, my antidote. This is what I want for the rest of my life. I even found my way to everyday meditation with dogs and feel more relaxed." Pavlo, Dog Breeder, Belgium
