RMD Trainingen is an organization based on learning by experience: Trainingen Coaching Counseling Consultancy

Learning by experience:

  • Experience the action
  • Reflect
  • Make the link to reality
  • Implement
  • Experience again

Participants are given the opportunity to have experiences on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level.

Human Behaviour is determined by many influences. Consciously but especially on a subconscious level. This is the main reason why behaviour is so complex. Through experience, knowledge, insight and practice of skills you will have the opportunity to have more freedom of choice in how you want to behave in different situations in your life. You can develop on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level and increase opportunities in your personal and professional life.


“Tell me and I will forget, Show me and I may remember, Involve me and I will understand...” -Confucius

What can you experience?

All our experience based programmes are based on the following structure:

  • Basis: Discover your frame of reference and become challenged to step out of it.
  • Contemplation: Reflect and become aware.
  • Building: Act, practice, experience.
  • Movement: Becoming aware of the connection between body and mind.
  • Rewarding: What works for you?




“Practical and experience-based”

Learning by doing: By experiencing how you behave and learning what your mechanisms or behavioural systems are, you will get more insight in why you behave in such a manner and get a better grip on your life.

RMD Training is focussing on experience, awareness, feeling, thinking, learning and acting. Our core values on how we work are connection, trust and safety. Through the years RMD Trainingen has worked with many powerful metaphors which have been a very valuable asset for the participants. A safe and trustful manner will give participants an in-depth feeling of self awareness. The added value of a metaphor stands or falls with how the participant is able to make the link to his or her personal and professional life. This is the reason why there is a lot of emphasis on making this link. Think of metaphors like: travelling, drive horses, aikido, outdoor activities, organizational constellations and more.

A tailor made programme is a standard procedure at RMD Trainingen. Although RMD Trainingen is offering standard programs, none of the programs are the same. No person and no organisation are equal.


Therefore the locations, of training, coaching, consultancy & counseling will differ each time.

For locations and accommodations, RMD Trainingen makes use of natural environments with creative atmospheres.

All our tailor made programmes offer you the opportunity to:

  • Become aware of your behaviour and performance.
  • Gain insight in your behaviour and performance.
  • Take responsibility for your actions.
  • Make new and better choices.
  • Make optimal use of your qualities, internal resources and possibilities.
  • Experience more joy in your work, study or sports.
  • Optimize your management and leadership skills.
  • Work more efficient and goal minded.




Richard Dijkstra has been working with “learning by experience” based programs for many years. He studied International Marketing and Management in Groningen and worked for some years abroad.

His interest for the human psyche has grown during the years. Not only personal but also professionally. He has followed diverse courses such as; Enneagram model, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Psycho physical training (Richard is a Rock and Water trainer) and Transpersonal therapy. Transpersonal therapy is based on bio-energetic, Gestalt therapy, and the in-depth psychology of Jung.

Richard practices the art of Aikido since 1998 and uses this art, among other tools, in his work as a powerful metaphor. His key qualities are; making contact, being a good listener, a sharp observer and distinguishing the main points from secondary matters.
