I get energy from people, brain teasers and results. My communication style is open, clear and direct. Both in coaching and in supervision, my working method is characterized by humor, customer focus, independence and sensitivity.

As a career coach and placement coordinator for all students at the Faculty of Arts in Groningen I connect and bring people together. Every day I learn from students, colleagues and contacts and I love my work for that. My goal is to help young people to find their drives, to discover their talents and to live their dreams.

I believe in sport, traveling and learning languages to improve self-development. Especially sports have helped me a lot in my younger years and I'm very sure it can help others to find their own answers. With my own experiences and beliefs I will help others to form and live their own dream.
Go back to what you enjoyed when you were young. What do you love to do? What are your values? What makes your heart jump? Do you want to learn and grow or do you want to know .. ? There is no wrong choice. Do you allow yourself to 'make mistakes' and learn?

As a life and vitality coach I support you in investigating the question: Who am I really? If you know yourself, you can make choices that really suit you. When thinking, feeling and doing form one line, you feel capable, energetic and you feel like doing things. With my genuine interest in you, life experience and coaching skills I coach you from where you are to where you want to be. I teach you to become aware of which knob you have to turn to let the energy flow (again).
