ZekerJezelf [Pron.: 'zekər ' jəˈzəlf'] is a combination of the two dutch words “zeker” and “jezelf”.
I offer talks and training in building and sustaining a healthy level of self-confidence.
My name is Anette Schäfer and I believe in the immense power of positive thought, self-compassion and unconditional acceptance of ourselves. By combining these energies, I truly am convinced that we can step out of our comfort zone, exceed the limits that have been holding us back and achieve true freedom and fulfillment.
I am a teacher/trainer of English, psychology and mental empowerment at the Dutch School of Police Studies in The Hague. I have run self empowerment and assertiveness trainings since 1997, when I was still living and working as a secondary teacher in Great Britain.
My personal journey of self-discovery began prior to this when I discovered a malignant tumour in my throat during a relaxation exercise at a workshop entitled, significantly, “Love yourself, Heal your life”. Both grateful and intrigued by what might have happened had I not attended, I decided to train as a “Heal your life” teacher myself following my recovery. The training is based on the philosophy of Louise Hay, whom I still regard as one of the pioneers in the field of self-development.
Our thinking determines our emotions, our emotions determine our action, and our action determines our life-experiences and how we deal with them. You need to watch your thinking!
For practical reasons, this website was designed in Dutch. I do however offer my workshops and all materials in English as well as German.
