I changed countries, built a successful career, but I didn't feel happy
Life in a wonderful country, prestigious job, stability. What else could I dream of?
One day I realized I wasn't happy with my job anymore. I would sit for hours staring at the screen and waiting for the day to end. I knew I needed to change something, but I wasn't sure what. I was also afraid to leave a secure job and exchange financial freedom for nothing.
I didn't realize what truly excites me for two years
I was confused and frustrated because I didn't know what to do with my life and career. However, I wanted change and decided to take action.
I've read books, followed courses to become a Scrum Master, a UI/UX designer, talked to people in various industries, asked for help…But actually, I didn't have to look for my true passion that far!
All fell into place when I saw what I loved the most: empowering others
Once I understood I wanted to help people, I quit my Head of Recruitment position and started as a Coach. I started reading more and more about coaching, neuroscience and completed Professional Coaching Skills Program Certification.
I've helped more than 100 people feel happier and fulfilled I helped people gain confidence when they were doubting themselves. I steered them in the right direction when they needed clarity. I gave them tools to cope with life challenges and uncertainties.
I know the fears you face when thinking of a life or career change - I've been there
I've gone through burnout, encountered challenges when fitting in as an expat in The Netherlands, changed careers, and opened my own coaching business. Being afraid to get out of your comfort zone, dream about a better life, quit your job because of financial security because society says: "it's impossible to get what you want" or "it's a prestigious job"...
Don't listen to anyone but yourself. I'll show you how to find joy and fulfillment in your life and career.
I build a successful career in talent acquisition
I started my career in recruitment and talent development in 2012. During my corporate career, I had the opportunity to lead teams 3 times.
I have been fortunate to work with international and local tech companies, from startups to large organizations.
Working in a corporate and consulting environment helped me to build excellent communication, listening and people management skills.
I've helped 150+ professionals solve complex career puzzles
My experience includes coaching
mid-senior level professionals working at ASML, ABN AMRO, Pandora, Rabobank, Nextview, Bloomon, Avery Dennison, Raben, and others.
I helped them gain confidence when they were doubting themselves. I steered them in the right direction when they needed clarity. I gave them tools to cope with professional challenges and uncertainties.
I show people how to change their mindset to make better choices. I help them uncover, articulate their strengths and skills to succeed in their work.
My mission is to help employees realize their potential through coaching
Everyone needs a little guidance at some point in their professional life. When we feel stuck and so deeply immersed in our problem, we lack the ability to find a new perspective and appropriate solution.
Whether it's struggling to decide on your next career move, feeling unmotivated at work, losing confidence in a new challenge, or not being able to inspire others to achieve your business goals.
Coaching helps people reflect on what they know and don't know, want and don't want, and can and can't. It is a learning process aimed at increasing self-awareness and responsibility for achieving desired goals. Coaching gives people the answers you couldn't find on your own.
What truly excites me is empowering others
When I was a Recruitment Lead, I loved coming up with ways to make people thrive at what they did. I used coaching to motivate my team, help them develop their key skills and reach their peak performance. I advised other people managers on how they could develop their employees.
One day I understood I wanted to help people even more. I quit my Head of Recruitment position and started as a Coach.
I completed Professional Coaching Skills Program and obtained a Coaching Certification from the International Coaching Federation.
