"My mission is: to make people's daily lives better, easier and more fun in a pleasant and safe way."

Marga Hogenhuis

Hi, my name is Marga Hogenhuis-Flokstra, I am 48 years old, married and the mother of 3 children. After many wanderings and countless jobs, from employee to freelancer, I have a nice backpack filled with lots of experiences that I can use to empathize in many different situations.

From my own growth process I have learned what the price is of wanting to do too much for someone else. Or how insecurity and fears can be paralyzing. What scars a trauma leaves behind and what the impact is on your life then and on adult life now. But also know how you can convert negative events into something positive. And that is personal growth and development. 

It is my mission to help people in a pleasant and safe way to make their everyday life better, easier and more. My approach is warm and based on trust and security. I work intuitively and focussed on your strenghts to move onwards and upwards.  Do you feel addressed, this resonates with you and you are curious about your own power and potency? Then I look forward to meeting you! 

Marga has done a broad coaching / counseling course and the Integrative Psychoterapy education where the following techniques have been discussed: Hypnotherapy, Rational Emotive Therapy (RET), ACT, Gestalt therapy, modern short-term Psychodynamic therapies, Behavioral therapy, Inner Child work, psychosomatic, Solution oriented Therapy, Transactional Analysis (TA), Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Body oriented therapies, working with dreams, visualisations, working with sharing, Regression and coaching.

She has also completed the basic Psychosocial and Medical knowledge course and has developed a basic knowledge in the field of (developmental) psychology and psychopathology.

What others say


Via mijn werk ben ik terecht gekomen bij PIT en Marga. Op het moment dat ik bij Marga kwam had ik dringend behoefte aan begeleiding in de thuis situatie en de werk situatie. Bij beide was de basis weg en ik voelde me nergens meer op mijn plek. Er zat geen vaste grond onder mijn voeten en ik wist niet hoe ik dit verder moest aanpakken. Al bij de eerste afspraak was duidelijk dat er een goede klik was tussen de behandelaar (Marga) en de cliënt (ikzelf). Marga heeft me dan ook erg goed op weg geholpen om de problemen aan te pakken. De initiele focus was eerst op de thuis situatie, om daar weer een stevige basis te creeren. Hier hebben we de eerste helft van de sessies op gefocused en door middel van oefeningen en zelfreflectie. Na een aantal sessies merkte ik al verandering bij mezelf en dat ik anders naar dingen begon te kijken en beter kon rationaliseren.


In de tweede helft van de sessies hebben we ons gefocused op de werksituatie. Ook hier hebben we door oefeningen en zelfreflectie grote stappen gemaakt en heb ik weer wat structuur terug gekregen in mijn dagelijks leven.


Het is fijn om met Marga te werken, ze neemt echt de tijd voor je, staat overal neutraal in en zal nergens over oordelen. Deze fijne aanpak werkte voor mij heel goed en ik heb me dan ook alle sessies goed op mijn gemak gevoeld en het was makkelijk voor me om mijn problemen op tafel te gooien.


Uiteraard heb ik nog wat werk te doen voor mezelf, maar zonder Marga had ik daar zelf niet aan kunnen beginnen. Ik ben dan ook erg blij en dankbaar dat Marga me weer op weg heeft geholpen. Een aanrader voor iedereen die in knoop zit met situaties of met zichzelf. Ik beveel haar van harte aan.


“Via my psychologist I was recommended to Marga to do an Assertiveness Training. Amazing to discover that my insecurities can be challenged and altered by looking at events from the past. And to learn from the events that are happening today. ”

“It gives a real nice and satisfying feeling to look at my questions and challenges together with Marga. It gave me an insight in my emotional world and gave me peace of mind but most importantly it gave me tools for the future."

"I must say that I found it mostly surprising to come to find how the events and experiences from the past have had a decisive impact on how I make the choices in my life today. The sessions gave my lot's of insights on how some events have played such an important role in my believe-system ”

"I found Marga on the internet by searching by feeling for someone where I can feel: This is" right ", here I can make good steps in my processes in a way that feels good and good.

Although I did not know what that way exactly was and with what kind of therapist. I already have some experience with psychologists, therapists, regular and alternative techniques and yet I did not know what I was looking for or what I needed. Marga turned out to be exactly the person I was looking for :-)

Setting limits was the theme I came for, but during the process I came across blind spots and family pieces.

In my opinion, after the first two sessions, I dealt with situations differently, I clearly indicated my limits.

With the start of every session, I experienced that we entered openly and Marga perfectly matched me.

There were also sessions that Marga had prepared, such as a hypnosis, for which I had indicated a certain theme.

The different techniques she proposed to use felt good, fitting and fine.

Marga can set up a session in such a way that I can get everything out of a session.

Some key words: tuning, balance, organic, beautiful techniques, intuitive, open, persevering, supporting, trusting, empowering.

In the meantime I now feel tidy inside, calmer, more secure and freer.

Thank you Marga for the nice sessions and the steps I could take with you!"


“What worked very well for me was looking at myself from a distance and asking me what things I missed / needed / wanted to give myself. By "stepping out of myself" (ed .: taking a meta position) I could see that much easier than when I started thinking about it. Then giving a name, a color or a symbol to what I mentioned made it very easy to get it back. The last session where we talked about trust, love and self-assurance and attributing colors to it helped me to feel that more immediately. That really worked amazingly effectively :-) It also gave me the strength to let go of two relationships in which I had lingered for far too long. By believing more in myself again and having the confidence that it will turn out, this suddenly became not so difficult anymore and I felt how liberating it was and those positive feelings also grew exponentially! Very nice, thank you! ”

"I am fine at the moment. The process I am in is still in full swing (probably will never be finished). I feel that I am getting closer to my core and that is very nice. In the meantime I also started thinking about the training I am going to do, it is a training aimed at guiding people through their awareness process, getting to your own core, at the Boswijk institute. In short, in full development! Thank you for your help and support in this process. In any case, it helped me get direction again!”

 "The moment I started to drown in my own way of thinking, I met Marga. Together we searched for the essence. With very nice conversations and exercises I got my life back on track. ”

“I have worked with Marga on RET therapy because my own thoughts make me very insecure / scared about whether I am good enough and belong to social groups. If there is even a small reason, I can worry about it all day long. Hereby my thoughts make it worse and it becomes more and more negative. Somehow you know that many thoughts are not realistic, but at the moments you cannot think about it that way and it is difficult to be aware of reality.

When I discussed and analyzed a situation with Marga about a fear of losing friends, I realized more and more that it was often nonsense what I thought. Especially the question of whether you can say with 100% certainty that the thought is true made me realize, and sometimes even a little laugh, that 9 out of 10 thoughts are not realistic and real.

It is nice to have performed the RET therapy with Marga. It consists of a number of steps with which you can analyze the situation. If I ever come across a similar situation, which is very likely with my uncertainty, then I can later ensure that I can turn my mind into something more positive and realistic. Thank you for giving me these tools! I can use it for the rest of my life! 

“I have learned to 'peal the union to the core' and to really look at the essence of my questions. From looking at it, I could take steps to solve or start processing the essence of my issues.  

It was a very warm and nice way of working on myself! 

Thank you for that."

Dank je wel.”

"What has been especially important is becoming aware of the I-strength. I can bounce off things that do not fit my energy, and protect myself, without my being hurt or myself in unpleasant situations. That is really the biggest thing what I have taken from my time with you. Thank you! "

"Op het moment dat ik begon te verdrinken in mijn eigen denkwijze, ontmoette ik Marga. Samen hebben we gezocht naar de essentie. Met hele fijne gesprekken en oefeningen heb ik mijn leven weer op de rit gekregen.”

Het is fijn om de RET-therapie eens met Marga uitgevoerd te hebben. Het bestaat uit een aantal stappen waarmee je de situatie kunt analyseren. Als ik ooit nog eens een soortgelijke situatie tegenkom, wat erg waarschijnlijk is met mijn onzekerheid, dan kan ik er later zelf voor zorgen dat ik mijn gedachten kan ombuigen tot iets meer positief en realistisch. Bedankt dat je mij deze tools hebt gegeven! Daar heb ik mijn verdere leven nog wat aan!”

"Door weer meer in mezelf te geloven en het vertrouwen te hebben dat het goedkomt was dit ineens niet zo lastig meer en voelde ik hoe bevrijdend het was en groeide ook die positieve gevoelens exponentieel!"

Ik heb Marga benaderd omdat ik mij niet zeker voelde tijdens presentaties voor grote groepen, wetende dat het niet zozeer in mijn techniek school als wel in mijn persoonlijkheid en in mijn verleden.


Ik heb Marga leren kennen als een vrolijke en toegankelijke vrouw die je meeneemt op reis. Via een systemische benadering heeft Marga mij inzicht gegeven in mijn relatie tot anderen en vooral wat dat met mij doet. In het vervolg hierop hebben we hier nog regelmatig hier naar terug gegrepen en heeft Marga mij een aantal instrumenten aangereikt om belemmerende gedachten los te laten en om te zetten in positieve acties. Marga kent een no-nonsense benadering en draagt praktische instrumenten aan die mij hebben geholpen om volgende stappen te maken.


Inmiddels heb ik mijn zelfvertrouwen terug gevonden en maak ik regelmatig gebruik van de handreikingen die Marga heeft aangedragen.


Marga bedankt en heel veel succes!

Peter, 53 jaar
