Amsterdam Vondelpark, and globally online


I am an integrative coach, counselor and psychologist, who really enjoys creating a trusting environment where you can grow. I am specialized in special people, helping them to find balance in their lives, better relationships and inner peace.


As beautiful as life can be sometimes, being human means being confronted with doubts, uncertainty and sometimes feeling all alone in this world. My clients come to me after years of giving their all; and suddenly find that they want to make essential changes.


Instead of the traditional office session, we meet outside and take a walk. In a natural way, we create a safe space where anything can be said and everything is possible, where you change fundamentally and then choose how to move forward.

  • In Vondelpark Amsterdam, we walk and talk in English, German or Dutch
  • “Bad” weather can be tackled with a heavy jacket or umbrella…
  • But I do have an office at Weteringschans, so that’s always an option
  • For people from all over the world, I offer Zoom sessions
  • I also have some availability for Westerpark


Integrative therapy is tailor made to suit your individual needs. I draw from my skills, tools and experience in various areas of coaching, counseling and psychology. Additionally, some clients appreciate my insights based on being a father or my years of experience working as a country manager and business analyst for a multinational.

First walk & talk (chemistry session) is for free.


True feelings

Because of Matti’s approach, I managed to get back in touch with my true feelings without shame or guilt; and that is very important to me.

Inner peace

After a session with Matti, I feel more inner peace and a certain lightness. I then take it with me in my daily life.

Enjoying life

Being used to a 80+ hour work week all my life, I thought I was depressed and predisposed never to experience pleasure in my life. I proofed myself wrong in that area. Thank you Matti.

Family bliss

As a workalholic I neglected my son and felt unable to deal with his anger. Now the relation is restored and my son and I go for walks.

Finding yourself

Being succesfull as a female VP of a large company, I felt something essential was missing and experienced deep sorrow and hopelesness. The coaching liberated me and now I travel the world following my true passions.


Matti Groot hat mir durch eine depressive Zeit mit vielen Problemen geholfen. Durch sein intensives Zuhören und den Willen das Problem auch bis ins kleinste Detail zu verstehen, gab er mir das Gefühl von Sicherheit. Er gibt Umständen neue Betrachtungsweisen und regt so zum Nachdenken an. Ich bin dankbar, dass ich durch seine Hilfe begann an mir selbst zu arbeiten, um so meine Probleme zu bewältigen.


Matti heeft mij begeleid als supervisor én als coach-counselor. Ik ervaar zijn begeleiding als erg inlevend en helpvol. Matti staat telkens stil bij wat ik nodig heb op dít moment. De vragen die Matti stelt maken dat ik echt bij de essentie van mijn ´probleem´ uitkom, waardoor ik nieuwe inzichten opdoe waar ik echt mee verder kan. Ik voel me bij hem op mijn gemak en ik heb het vertrouwen dat ik alles mág zeggen en dat vind ik erg waardevol.
