About me

Welcome to Hummingbee Academy!

My name is Esther Grootenboer and I am a Dutch psychiatrist and dialectical behavioral therapist.

I have founded Hummingbee Academy  because I want to spread my knowledge on wellbeing to a larger group of people. I have come to the conclusion that much of what I teach patients with severe mental illness, actually applies to us all. This website is for everyone who wants to improve their mental and physical health and wants to reach their highest potential.

In the upcoming months I will be publishing courses on Mindfulness, stress-reduction and other topics that can help you improve your wellbeing. You can also book a live lecture or workshop, for example as a team at your workplace. And, if needed, I can help you in the form of online 1-on-1 coaching.

In my programs I use techniques from cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectics and Mindfulness. My philosophy is a holistic one: there is a connection between every aspect of our being: body, mind and environment (like work conditions and relationships). As a doctor I can provide advice on aspects of your lifestyle that influence your wellbeing, like medication and eating habits.

Together we can make a difference in your life!
