| FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions
What is life coaching?
Coaching is quickly becoming one of the leading
tools that successful people use to live extraordinary lives. Through
weekly coaching sessions, my clients identify what is most important
to them and choose to take actions that help them to live the very
best life they can come up with. I believe all my clients are infinitely
creative and resourceful, but that they sometimes feel stuck, or
overwhelmed by their circumstances. When that happens, a coach can
help you see your situation from a different perspective, which
opens up a whole new area of opportunities and possibilities for
a life that truly supports your life purpose.
Coaching will help you take more, better and smarter
action, because you set the goals you really want. During our coaching
sessions, you will find out how you are currently balancing your
life: your work, family and spare time. Many times, that balance
is one that has evolved over the years and suddenly you may realize
certain habits or processes 'just don't fit you' anymore. Finding
out exactly what you really want for yourself is our first task
together. Once you create the ideal goal(s), you are much more likely
to naturally and consistently take actions to reach it.
Your commitment to yourself through coaching offers
a means for more balance, joy, intimacy, energy, financial abundance,
focus, and action in every area of your life. As your coach I will
help you reach for much more than you can currently imagine for
yourself. I will support you to become the best you that you can
be and help you live the greatest life you can imagine for yourself.

your greatest life!

How is coaching different
from therapy or consulting?
Coaching is not therapy, which goes into depth
about various issues, usually dealing with the past, nor is it consulting
which generally results in giving the client answers. Coaching goes
further than the goal: it is more action- oriented and focuses primarily
on the present and future. Through coaching I will support you to
determine your own 'answers' to help you move towards your goals.
What is your coaching
I hold a Dutch bachelor's degree in Health
Science, with a special interest in Health Promotion and Education.
My professional background ranges from weight-loss consulting to
high-tech recruiting to coordinating and managing programs for non-profit
organizations. My decision to take a year long sabbatical to travel
with my young family through Central and South America finally brought
me to coaching. I am a personal and professional coach, committed
to support you in living the greatest life possible for you!
