The coach and therapist behind Praktijk Engel

I'll introduce myself

My name is Simone Engel

I was born in Rotterdam in 1970. In my free time, I love nature and everything it has to offer The peace and space to reconnect with yourself.


Welcome to my page. I hope that by reading this, you’ll get a clear picture of who I am and how I can assist you. As someone deeply dedicated to helping others, I’m always looking for ways to assist as many people as possible. However, I understand that there are limits to what I can do.

On the other hand, if you have questions or doubts, I encourage you to reach out to me as well so that we can have an open and honest conversation. My goal is to assist you in achieving your goals. I am dedicated to providing you with the support and guidance you need to be successful.

It all began with the realization of my dream.

When I was 23 years old, I decided to fulfill my dream of living and studying in America. I pursued my studies at the University of Leiden upon my return to the Netherlands After returning to the Netherlands, I earned my degree in my field of study at the University of Leiden, as well as certifications as an orthomolecular therapist/naturopathic practitioner and as an external Confidential Advisor for Unwanted Behavior and Integrity.

But I wasn’t done learning, and to this day, I am still pursuing further studies. I have since undertaken many more courses, including Applied Psychology at the HBO level, for health insurance purposes. I am always seeking new challenges and ways to further develop myself.

After my time in Leiden, I moved to Drenthe, where I created a home for my horse and other animals. Unfortunately, my horse, dogs, and cats have since passed away, but I cherish the beautiful memories I shared with them. I currently reside in Drenthe and continue to relish the peace, space, and nature while pursuing my passions for music, creativity, and out-of-the-box thinking.

I have a life motto.

I believe that everybody is good the way they are at any given point in their life. From that point, we can choose every day to become an even better version of ourselves.

Whether it’s couples therapy, life coaching, grief and loss counseling, Integrity Confidential Advisor (VPI), or executive coaching, I can assist in this process.

How can I assist you?

As a psychologist, counselor, and coach, I have conducted thousands of consultations over the past fifteen years. I don’t just rely on the knowledge I gained during my education; I also draw from my own life experiences and the expertise I’ve acquired from running my own practice. Together, we embark on the journey and learn from each other in everything we do.

My strengths include my ability to connect dots, my empathy, authenticity, and integrity. I am passionate about helping people on their own life journey, both in their personal and professional lives. I have no biases and am here to assist you in achieving your goals.

“We all walk our own path.”

My key strengths are:

Unique at Praktijk Engel: collaboration with Praktijk Rode Roos

At Praktijk Engel, I frequently collaborate with Praktijk Rode Roos. This means that in couples therapy, it sometimes happens that couples prefer a male therapist. In such cases, I refer them to Maarten from Praktijk Rode Roos. We are each other’s backup in case something happens, but also for business presentations and workshops. Additionally, we share the practice spaces in which we work.

Benefits of couples therapy
