Passionate to help you live a happier life
A right of every human being
What I aim for…
is to help you see that there are always choices for you to be made. Yes, you cannot always control everything that is happening to you, but you can make a choice in how to respond to these. I belief that perceiving life this way is extremely liberating and empowering, because from this perspective life does not happen to you, but YOU make life happen. Focussing on what you can control instead of what you can’t will help you forward in creating a better and happier life for yourself. Acknowledging the options that are lying in front of you (and doing nothing is a choice as well) makes you start making choices that better fit with what you really want from life. Therefore, in my coaching I always aim to help you see your presented issues from new perspectives so we create options, options you didn’t see before which help you move forward with confidence and a ‘I can do’ attitude.
My major passion and talent is to connect to people. To make them feel truly heard and, if possible, to let them feel a little bit happier than they were before. I have lived and worked in six different countries, became a mum and changed the direction of my own career, so I have gone through some challenges myself. However, these real-life experiences in for example career challenges, transitions and re-defining fulfilment in life makes that I can much easier understand and relate to what is happening in your life. I am an excellent listener, easy to talk to, empathetic, positive minded, solution focused and I love to have a good laugh!
I graduated with distinction (cum laude) for my Masters in Coaching and Mentoring at the Oxford Brookes University (United Kingdom) and won the prize for the Student with the Best Overall Performance. Earlier I already graduated for my Masters in Business Administration. I am a certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), NLP Coach, Time Line Therapy, Hypnosis Practitioner and an authorized user of the Leadership Development Profile (LDP), the latter is inlcuded in the Top 10 Must Reads of the Harvard Business Review. I have participated in several masterclasses like Systemic Coaching & Constellations, Coaching Skills and Coaching & Neuroscience
After having worked for about 10 years in a variety of managerial positions I came to realise that what I enjoyed the most about my work were the moments in which I could focus on personal development. The experience of developing myself and helping people around me grow was hugely fulfilling and I decided to make that my full-time job. My years of experience at both multinationals and SME’s support me now in my daily work as I can easily relate to many business dynamics and leadership challenges people come accross in their careers.
