In this 6 months program you will learn through our 5 steps method 

  • how to monitor your energy level at work and at home
  • to respectfully express your boundaries, without harming your relationships
  • how to ‘stand strong’ in conflict situations so you can work together towards the solution
  • how to walk your own path while maintaining genuine contact with others

We made a conscious choice to alternate physical and mental exercises. Simply because it makes learning more fun and because it has been scientifically proven to be a much more powerful learning process, with life changing effect.

OXYGEN is specifically aimed at those who just keep going and tend to sell themselves short. Who always put their clients, partner and/or children first. Even  at their own expense and that of their personal energy level. Until one day they are too tired, worn out, short fused and lost in their own wants for their life.

Time to create space for yourself AND others

Start by allowing yourself these 6 months to grow. Then open up to new tools and skills that are offered to you and put them into practice. In a safe environment and with personal support.

For the implementation of the 6 months program we have a divers team of instructors/trainers available within the ‘met Peper graag’ network. Each with their own expertise. The final composition of this team depends on the personal target of the participants.

In this 6 months training we alternate  1-on-1 interaction, groep activities, E-learning and individual moments. The variations in this program make it highly effective in gaining valuable insights, practical tools and breaking persistent patterns.

In these 6 months we will work on:

  • identifying your needs
  • accepting these needs
  • identification of your talents
  • your needs and talents in relation to others
  • the influence of power and manipulation
  • your posture, your breathing, your voice and your core
  • setting boundaries, saying ‘No’ at the right time
  • keeping up your energy level
  • the impact of your own communication
  • active listening and how to make genuine contact with others
  • intercultural communication at home and at work
  • dealing with emotions, feelings and resistance in contact with others
  • dealing with conflict and how to prevent it
  • staying in the moment and how ‘to stand strong’
  • how to build on your relationships, without loosing yourself in them

After these 6 months you have gained insight into what you want, what you need, how you communicate this to others and how you can channel this to reach your goals in life. You are recharged and loaded with knowledge and tools to structurally be ‘yourself’ in daily life. And how to maintain this authenticity and strength in relation to others.


“Your own personal situation is taken into account in the training. Also there are no black and white statements on what is right or wrong. (…) Everyone’s process is valued equally, knowing that you do not have to (can’t) be perfect.”


“Linda shows her own vulnerability. That made me feel secure enough to do the same.”

“OXYGEN centers around genuine attention and ownership”

Learned heaps! (…) That to actively listen is really valuable for the one who’s listened to. And that actively listening is much better then offering solutions that were never requested in the first place.

I was sceptical in the beginning but I lost that quite quickly when I started reading and saw the psychological foundation, related to the exercises and the atmosphere in the group. Linda really did it. I love that she was able to offer me that much (…) I respect her a lot as a trainer.

Trainingsactor, mother of 2

I Found the excercises and feedback very useful. It offers so much more than to merely read a book and try it out yourself.
