The Australian former AZ Alkmaar midfielder believes there is a significant difference to the lifestyle in Holland.
And Holman reckons it has been beneficial for Villa players to let each other know what they feel of performances.
The 28-year-old was himself dropped after his poor debut against West Ham United but he was then a star performer in last weekend's win over Swansea City.
"In England, what I've seen a lot is that everybody's willing to have a go at each other," said Holman in the Birmingham Mail ahead of Saturday's trip to Southampton.
"Whereas in Holland it's not really accepted and it's frowned upon when people have a go.
"Here people are trying to have a go at you but they're trying to help you as well and that's what I see a lot and that helps.
"I think in England it's more accepted, whereas in Holland people would feel more criticised and feel like they were virtually getting picked on."
