Team Vlinder

Team Vlinder was founded by Peggy Kraak, counsellor, mentor, coach and mental health executive with more than 25 years of experience in human empowerment.

Peggy says:


"At Team Vlinder, we believe in the power of transformation and the beauty of change. That's why we chose the name Vlinder, which means butterfly in Dutch. Butterflies are a symbol of hope, positivity and strength. They represent the possibility of transformation and the potential for growth"

We would love to meet you and support you with the following:








I feel that I’m being treated as a person and
not as an illness. Team Vlinder has been an invaluable support both to me and my family.
