Tilke Platteel-Deur

The Art of Integrative Breathwork Therapy


“The Spirit of Breath has the power to contact our inner strength and connect us with an energy that is bigger than we are. It is an energy that supports us in our every day life.”


Working with the connected breath as a bridge between thinking and feeling, as well as integrating spirituality into daily life are essential in Tilke’s work, which is based on acceptance, respect and love. In this atmosphere, clients become aware of their true self, their essence, and thus of the deeper meaning of life.

Tilke is therapist, trainer, coach and supervisor. In 2009, she published a book about her work, “The Art of Integrative Therapy“. Together with Hans Mensink, she leads the Institute for Integrative Breathwork Therapy.
