After I finished my Bachelors degree and then education as a drama teacher, I was lucky enough to have my first coaching client in 1999, so I split my workweek between working for individuals and companies such as VUMC, Ortec, Belastingdienst and OLVG hospital. I have also worked for large corporations as Horizon College, Nationale Nederlanden, Allianz as Coach and Trainer.

The early years saw me working with clients who had encountered life situations they wanted to overcome such as divorce, health or loss. I am a trusted source of preventive methods by both individuals and corporate clients.

Today I am an integral part of Change Management, advising all important stakeholders of the organisation, and coaching talent in teams on one-to-one basis.


I developed a holistic way of guiding coachees to learn what their personal values are, to live out their values. I teach my clients to deal with uncomfortable emotions and thoughts which are part of living out their values, rather than choosing aversion. This provides flexibility in daily interactions.

For me, the Deep Democracy method provides tools to assist decision-making by focusing on other views, without avoiding the conflicts. Contradictions and conflicts of opinion are examined respectfully through dialogue and discussion.

Using my Theatrical background, corporate experience and education, I provide experiential learning through creative exercises, theatrical methods, meditation, drawing, writing, singing which provides clients with a fun way to begin their transition.


My thoughts

In the process of Coaching, I created methods to develop managers, enabling them to be more effective and efficient whilst motivating their team. As this leadership coaching grew I developed Team Coaching programmes which involved working on the team as a whole in an inclusive environment.

Today I am an integral part of Change Management, advising all important stakeholders of the organisation, and coaching talent in teams on one-to-one basis.

Your future

I work on a experiential learning base. What this means is that I offer creative exercises which provide learning experiences. These exercises depending on the individual could be theatrical, meditation, drawing, writing and singing. In each instance there is something to learn, about work pressure or life challenges with a positive impact for higher promotions, achieving life goals or becoming more efficient with the family/work life.
