Coaching & therapy network

Although microdosing psychedelics is certainly not a panacea or solution for all of your problems, we have found that it is a very good tool to support personal growth and transformation. Just like meditation, yoga, healthy food and exercise, microdosing psychedelics can be an efficient tool for maintaining mental and physical balance.

Since the start of our platform 3 years ago we, Jakobien and Hein, guide and coach people during their microdosing processes. In order to be of service to more people, we work with various therapists, coaches and psychologists from the mainstream and alternative sector, who are open to the potential healing effects of psychedelics in micro and macro dosing.

We took our time to experience microdosing ourselves, in order to get a picture which is as realistic as possible and bridge the gap between scientists. We’ve set up a Facebook group which serves as a platform for people who share their microdosing experiences and continued with guiding and coaching individuals in their microdosing journeys. The knowledge and experience we’ve gained, got incorporated into our website which we now share with our network of coaches and you.

Our team works closely with James Fadiman PhD and several other microdosing specialists. They guide and advise our coaching team, so that we can give you the most realistic and thorough guidance.

Our goal is to guide people with questions about microdosing as well as possible. We combine our expertise in microdosing with coaching in which we’re specializing in. We bring together coaches and therapists whose expertise fits into this work and who can guide you through this fascinating journey.

Hein Pijnnaken

Hein Pijnnaken

Microdosing Coach & Transformational Coach (NLP Advanced Master)

My name is Hein, I’m a founder of the Microdosing.nl platform and a microdosing coach. After 30 years of experience with the healing effects of psychedelics as well as guiding many sessions, microdosing with psychedelics came my way. I’ve been intensively studying this subject since 2016. This website originated from my investigation of both, theoretical and practical sides of microdosing. The intensive contact with scientists, such as James Fadiman, and microdosers in our community, has provided me with a balanced picture of how I use microdosing in combination with coaching.

Having a background in Transformational coaching (NLP advanced master) I’m fascinated about how microdosing combined with coaching serves as a great catalyst and self-development tool. Provided you choose to work with microdosing yourself, I facilitate your process to help you get the most of your microdosing adventure! I specialize in counseling people with cluster headaches in their microdosing and minidosing processes.

Jakobien van der Weijden

Microdosing Coach & Holistic Coach

Ever since I remember I’ve been fascinated by traveling and exploring distant cultures. Out of pure curiosity, but also to observe what such encounters do to me. This is how plant medicine came onto my path. I’ve attended dozens of ceremonies, both in Europe and with the local communities in South America. These experiences helped me to gain a lot of knowledge about natural psychedelics and medicinal plants such as ayahuasca, mushrooms, truffles and San Pedro.

I’ve been in service of the psychedelic renaissance for over 10 years through working for smartshops, being involved in OPEN Foundation, the Psychedelic Society and currently I work at the Synthesis Institute that offers professionally guided, medically supervised psilocybin retreats and therapy. I will always be committed to creating close ties with scientists, therapists, facilitators and microdosers from all over the world.

It was a logical step for me to dive into combining microdosing with Holistic Coaching. After all, not everyone benefits from a solid visionary journey. I discovered that microdosing can be way more than a trick for more focus or creativity during your work, although this story remains very popular with the media. When guiding you through the process of microdosing I’ll gladly help you make this journey as useful and meaningful as possible.

Mart Foodsporen

Mart Stoffele

Medicinal Mushrooms Expert

Everyone a little healthier, every day. That is my vision. The fascination for mushrooms started from my own experience, I was stuck in life, not feeling well and unable to concentrate. Despite several visits to a doctor, there was no improvement. Finally, I discovered a mushroom extract, a tincture that did work. Soon I felt better. I could also concentrate better and then I started to study natural medicine. This would have been unthinkable in the past. The extracts gave me more focus and clarity. One book after another was devoured and the passion grew into a business. With Foodsporen, I want to introduce as many people as possible to the power of these vitalising mushroom extracts.

Marijn Schrieken

Marijn Schrieken

Therapist for Trauma Processing and Training

Trauma healing, according to the Somatic Experiencing© methodology of Peter Levine, came my way in 2013. I’ve just read his book ‘Waking The Tiger’ when I had an accident and felt my body is doing exactly what Levine described in his book. I responded like mammals do in nature, literally shaking off the experience. At that point I decided to follow his training. Now I am teaching others how to free their bodies from unnecessary stress and tension and get back to the natural flow of life.

Somatic Experiencing© is basically a body-oriented method and is therefore also called a ‘bottom-up method’ because the body sensations are being used as an input. Somatic Experiencing© works beautifully to support psychedelic practice to anchor experiences from the journey in your body. That helps the psychedelic encounter to be easier integrated into daily life, especially when old wounds and traumas which deserve extra attention are being touched.

However impressive and insightful inner journeys (large and small) may be, they are not an answer to all the pain suffered. Somatic Experiencing© can contribute very well to deep healing of old pain and/or traumas. If you want to know more about how that works, please feel free to contact me personally. My practice is located in Amsterdam.


Jeanine Souren

Psychologist, Psychotherapist, Relationship and Family Therapist, Sexologist

I am a licensed psychotherapist, systems therapist (family and couples-) and sexologist. I work in my own private practice and for Fieldtriphealth in Amsterdam. 
Clients in my practice often suffer from clinical conditions such as depression, anxiety, burn-out, (C)PTSD, sexuality issues and all kinds of dependencies and addictions. Most people suffer from more than 1 issue at the same time. And sometimes, a person’s character traits play a role in returning (negative) patterns. 

I have been trained in many modalities. I like to combine different forms of therapy and coaching, in which I am certified. Such as, EMDR, Systemic (family) therapy, ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy), Family Constellations, Schema focused therapy, Psychotherapy, Mindfulness, Psychodrama and other experiential approaches. Depending on the person, I apply what works best.

Sessions can take place online, or in my practice in Culemborg. I work with couples, individuals and families.

Hidde Schröder

Microdosing Coach

Founder of Vista+ which examines the benefits of plant medicine for society. Vista+ provides guidance and counseling by helping with intention setting and attaining personal growth in the process of microdosing by means of a 10-week microdosing program.

“I’ve been researching health, nutrition and alternative means of medicine/healing for the past decade. With a fascination for the mind-body connection; how thoughts and emotions influence our physiology in particular. Having a background as a massage therapist and exploring other disciplines such as yoga, meditation, breathwork, martial arts, pranic healing, and energy cultivation.”

Psilocybin can be a beautiful instrument and ‘teacher’ to assist you in attaining a wider perspective and deeper state of consciousness. The experiences and insights felt during and after the microdosing process can help you to restore the balance within yourself.

I am an experienced practitioner with training in “Psychedelic Integration” from the MIND Foundation and have first-hand experience in guiding dozens of ceremonies with psilocybin and other plant medicine.

It is a privilege to contribute and assist others in this process of re-connecting and self-exploration, and to gain more understanding into mental-, emotional- and spiritual growth.

I am Sjanett. I like to make my own plan, both for business and pleasure and the life crafting strategies from the Twelve Waves Protocol make that possible and successful.

Rob ter Keurs

Rob ter Keurs

Physiotherapy and Haptonomy

My name is Rob ter Keurs (1959), I studied physiotherapy at the Tim van der Laan Academy and followed the haptonomy training with Otto Huizinga. Everything from a passion for people.

I use transpersonal psychology (where mystical and spiritual experiences also belong) as a starting point. In addition, in my work I use everything I’ve learned in training, but also the experiences I have gained in practice. If they appeal to me and they help people, I use them. I think that may deviate from the mainstream idea. In order to allow healing to come I use elements from NLP, Reiki, Emotional Freedom Technique, Holotropic Breathing and Shamanistic Techniques. My practice is located in Amstelveen.

Pieter Meurs

Pieter Meurs, MD

Holistic Healthcare

The name my parents gave me is Pieter Meurs. In 2014 I graduated as a medical doctor at the University of Nijmegen. After that I started working in psychiatry in Groningen, first in the clinics, later in the department of Integrative Psychiatry (CIP) department.

After graduating in medicine, a few years ago I started my holistic healthcare practice called Dr. Aquarius. In this time of Aquarius we may go beyond the existing form and everything that serves the whole may come together in one discipline.

In this way I combine my knowledge of regular medicine studies with additional treatments such as yoga, meditation and plant medicine. The latter also includes teacher plants such as cannabis and truffles, which are very powerful medicines if used correctly.

It is possible to schedule an intake for counseling about microdosing with plant medicine, lifestyle and (sound)healing. The consultations take place in a cozy house next to the woods in the Veluwe.
