Who am I?
I have a strong interest in everything that moves a human being. My life has been set out for personal development, that of myself and the people that I have been able of working with.
My career has unfolded as a triptych. As a young female adult, I worked as a speech therapist in an academic hospital. I discovered that I seamlessly fitted in with the feelings of the parents and the children that I worked with. By staying close to myself, I managed to get close to the feelings of my clients, and with that, I enabled their personal development.
Thereafter and for 30 years, I have worked as a trainer and coach for companies. In this phase of my career, I was able to strengthen myself by enabling the personal development of others. As a behavioural trainer, I taught becoming trainers in the Netherlands, Russia and China.
By now I am an advanced practitioner in the fields of therapy and coaching and I now have my own therapy practice. Together with my clients, I explore active patterns and the underlying desires that they withhold. More specifically, we discover together which mechanisms are at work that supress their core desires. I create security and challenge my clients to empower themselves to access their inner core, through which they will be able to find answers. With coaching, I increase one’s ability to activate access to all the sources of potential within oneself. The basic purpose is thus to enable one to act through one’s own strength.
