Anne-Marije from 'The Inner Harmony Project' has a passion for helping women cultivate authentic and harmonious relationships in their lives through the practical skills of the 'Be Your Best' communication program. She has over 15 years of experience in teaching children and adults of all ages in group settings as well as in a 1:1 setting. From 2013 onwards, as a holistic counsellor and communication facilitator, Anne-Marije has organised and facilitated workshops, retreats and training programs in a variety of self-development topics such as meditation, wholehearted living and effective communication. Originally from The Netherlands; living in Australia Anne-Marije discovered just how ‘lost in translation’ she could be with the ‘slang-speaking’ Aussies. This led her to become fascinated by language and what makes people tick. So after she completed her theatre studies in 2006 she added qualifications in holistic counselling, family constellation work and effective communication whilst working in a variety of corporate and not-for-profit companies.
