Nicoline Douwes Isema is a Dutch sleep enthousiast and dream expert. She’s on a mission to show everyone that sleep is an active state of productive thinking.

For over 15 years Nicoline has helped people from all walks of life find ways to process their own dreams. She wrote a book on this (“Wat Heb Jij Gedroomd Vannacht”, 2011) with journalist Cathelijne Esser.

Since then, Nicoline has gradually shifted focus to helping entrepreneurs use their dreams as a creative resource to solve problems, find inspiration, and drive innovation. You see, the thinking brain is much more active than you think, and behaves much in the same way that a brainstorm session might.

These days, Nicoline is often found on radio, podcasts, in print, and on television (in both Dutch and English) promoting the power of intentional dreaming.


As a member of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD), Nicoline follows their ethical guidelines.
