Who we are

We have started In Touch Amsterdam to devote more time and active work (beyond the individual effort) on the topics of migration and integration.
Dora Djamila Mester

As a personal coach / counselor for more than ten years I help my clients to heal issues in their sexual life or relationships. As a trainer I do in-service training, personal coaching and group sessions for teachers, trainers and professionals from various fields.

As a migrant woman myself, I also work on migration and life transitions with my clients.

My work with people taught me that physical space has a crucial role in creating security and intimacy for the emotional work to be done. I have a long-term project plan about creating a green place, a Garden, a ´European garden´. This garden would not belong to a particular country but would be interconnected; floating above cultures but also embedded into the culture of its physical location. This would be a safe place for integration, arrival.

In Touch Amsterdam is supposed to be one further step towards the idea of the ´European Floating Garden´ could come true.

Hello, my name is Balazs. I’m a social scientist by training, a humanist by happenstance, a migrant by choice.

I consider myself a child of the Enlightenment. I believe that shared intimacy is the most powerful source of good on Earth.  I make jewelry from the detritus of life, and I like getting lost in unknown places. InTouch is the latest of such places.
