Spark Mindfulness Activity

Yellow Wood

Debby Poort arrived in the Netherlands in the year 2000, trained in psychotherapy in Amsterdam, and has been working in the expat community since 2007. As an integrative therapist, her private psychotherapy practice, Yellow Wood, focuses on expat couples and individuals here in the Netherlands and on-line throughout the world.

Her journey into the field of mindfulness began out of a personal interest in learning strategies to reduce stress and anxiety, while improving emotional resilience. In 2010, after discovering the benefits for herself, Debby became a certified instructor. She founded Mindfulness International in 2011 and since then, she has taught Mindfulness to expats as well as to teachers and staff at various International Schools in Holland.
