Anything can be brought to the coaching space; perhaps issues around self-confidence and self-esteem, questions around career development and life choices, or curiosity about who you are and what it means for you to live a fulfilled life. Whatever the issue is, we will look at it with the lens of bringing your authentic Self forward. Perhaps letting it be freed from habitual behaviours and habits, and seeing where it is blocked from coming forward.
I believe that your Self is the deepest essence of you - the center of your being. Your Self is a place which holds many of your most beautiful qualities, such as acceptance, confidence, calmness, wisdom, compassion, connectedness, leadership and perspective.
Once this awareness emerges, I will work with you to support the development and growth of this Self - and as this happens more and more, you will experience greater freedom, fulfilment and possibility. For me as a coach, this is the magic of this method - to call your authentic Self forward.
As you will be noticing here, this type of coaching requires your input, and the courage to go on a journey together - one which can sometimes be uncomfortable as we pursue honesty and authenticity. The journey is always creative - and my work includes poetry, music, art, as well as somatic practices, conversation, with a strong focus on the Internal Family Systems methodology. As part of the work, you will be taking on new practices and self-reflection exercises in order for you to bring awareness to your way of living, and to nurture deeper connection to your Self.
Before starting the coaching we would meet to get a shared understanding of the coaching issue you are wanting to explore, and how we might go about working with it within integral coaching methodology. If we agree to embark on a coaching journey together, I will then design a coaching program specifically for you, fitted to your needs, interests and lifestyle.
I am based in Amsterdam and provide coaching by video conference to clients all over the world in both English and Dutch. If you're based in the Amsterdam area we can have our sessions in person as well of course.
I look forward to working with you!
