Specialised in Skype Coaching – Life & Career Coaching from the comfort of your office or home, including but not limited to Lawyers, Managers, (Starting) Entrepreneurs, Expats, Women, Relationships, Parenting, Relocation, etc.

Background: After I finished my masters in law, I joined a leading international law firm where I practiced law at the highest level for seven years. As a senior associate, the firm provided me with a coach. The coaching sessions changed my life and inspired me to also become a coach. After 7 years with the firm, I joined a British multinational. Besides managing the legal department, I was involved in change management and coaching. Currently, I run my own international coaching practice which allows me to combine the things I love and do best.

My vision and mission: When I was 28 years old I was making a nice salary, married to a very nice man, living in a beautiful house in the suburbs of Amsterdam: on the outside my life was perfect but on the inside I was miserable. I realised that I had adjusted myself to the point that I had lost myself and it was time to start living my life according to me. Coaching helped me make this transformation and find myself again. It enabled me to reconnect with myself, express myself truly and create my life the way I want it. We all deserve to be happy and we all have the ability to be happy and reach our full potential at home and at work. This is why I became a coach: to empower you to make positive change, reach your full potential and find fulfilment in every aspect of your life; to guide you through the challenging parts of your journey. Why? Because I care and share your joy when you arrive at your desired destination!

I worked in medical care for 22 years as a nurse and manager. I always had great interest in other people. Currently I work as a manager in an IP law firm and I run my own coaching practice, Coachen naar Kracht, together with Jaap Renkema. With the experience of the MMS program we built our own coaching method. Our approach is based on the 7 steps of personal growth. We use this in our workshops and coaching programs, and we can help people very efficiently in short time. I have a warm personality, I’m easy to talk to and very straightforward; what you see is what you get.

My vision and mission
Sometimes people get stuck in a situation from the past and/or they lose perspective of their current situation. They’re not enjoying their life as it is. I like to help these people by asking them the right questions making them able to get their life back on track or to change it in a way they are happy with it. Making other people happy, seeing them grow and enjoying their lives again gives me a lot of energy.

I worked two decades in multinational firms having various roles in marketing and business development. I travelled around the world and developed businesses. During that time, the moments that gave me most joy were the ones I spent time with other people coaching/mentoring and supporting them in some way. Still I was caught up in conflict – making a career in marketing or changing my path. I started searching and I came across MMS Coaching Training. Through this training I experienced an incredible transformation and discovery. Now I know who I am and what I want and I am doing it. I am starting my own coaching business for individuals and organizations.

My vision and mission
I want to support individuals discover who they are, what they want, unblock their obstacles so they can reach their full potential. I have been in many teams throughout the two decades – some struggling to reach their targets and some reaching greatness. I want to support leaders and teams to discover their purpose and create a path to reach their goals while clearing the blockages they have personally or as a team.

In 2017, I decided to give shape to my professional work in a different way. I worked in business for 34 years, including 20 years as executive R&D manager at Philips and Signify in various standings and business units. In those years I was trained and received certificates to facilitate teams in their change process.

In the spring of 2018, I graduated (Professional Coach level) from the MMS Coaching Training and received the ICF ACC certificate. Since July 2018 I have my own company(Catch the Tide) and coach people or work with teams. My passion is to support people in their development, to help discover the next step and consequently help to take that step. As such “discover/uncover” (ont-dekken in Dutch) is the overarching theme.  I work as a coach and you are invited to contact me to talk about what I could mean to you.

Having experienced myself as an executive and leader to change my own organization several times, I got fascinated by organizational cultures and change management in organizations. I have been trained during my career to professionally facilitate culture change workshops. I conducted multiple culture change workshops per year with various teams.

As a professional coach and team facilitator I use this experience to support and facilitate teams and their leaders. It could be about the effectiveness of the team, collaboration in the team, collaboration with other teams, conflict resolutions, etc. In case of questions about direction of the team, the team purpose or the vision of the team, I use scenario planning to support the team to get more clarity and to define the necessary answers and actions.

I work throughout the country and for certain activities I work in the mountains or on the water. I like to work with other coaches, to develop new programs and continue to learn from each other.

My favourite hobby is (off-shore) sailing, making trips along the European coast and discovering new areas.

  • Divorce-coaching
  • Relationship-coaching and -mediation
  • Mediation in general

After having worked for many years as a legal advisor and registered mediator in divorce- and other familylaw-cases I was – so it seems – automatically pushed in the direction of coaching. Because over time I had come to the conclusion, that the real issue in most divorces is not so much the legal or the financial part, but the emotional part – which is all too often being translated in fights in the legal and/or the financial area. But being a mediator I was not allowed to address the ´emotional divorce´, which interested me more and more.

Apart from that aspect I saw quite a lot of people with great personal potential – especially women – getting stuck in their divorce-related problems – with all sorts of consequences for themselves and their children. Becoming a qualified coach became mandatory for me. So in January 2003 I started my MMS´CT-training and what an eye-opener it was for me. I loved the type of coaching I was taught. After that I extended my education to related areas as grief-counseling. By now my practice has been fully transformed from arranging divorce-arranging to divorce- (and relationship-)coaching.

My vision and mission
My education as a grief-counselor was an important follow-up to my coach-education. Because it made me aware, that people in divorce-situations too often overlook the fact, that divorcing is above all a process of grief and bereavement instead of shame, quilt and fingerpointing. I am convinced, that people going through this difficult period in their lives (or later) need more care and help in tending to their hurt souls and finding a new direction in life than they (want to) know. They think a beauty-therapist can help, hoping it makes them feel better. It does, but shortly and only on the outside. What they really need is an ´emotional beauty-therapist´: the essence of divorce-coaching.

The same can be said about relationship-coaching: here it is the relationship, that is ailing – while the partners lose sight of each other, struggle in the fog and start contemplating divorce. Here the emotional beauty-therapist is also needed, but in this area coaching is necessarily often mixed with mediation.

Though the topic in itself is often regarded as sad, I love to do this work – especially when I see my clients slowly discovering life and sunshine again… Can I help you?

The search for a balanced life has never been as difficult as today. Responsibilities, daily life, the abundance of choices, expectations – of others and ourselves, sometimes make us forget who we really are, what our dreams are and what makes us happy.

My purpose as a coach is to help you achieve your dreams and goals. Not by telling you what to do, but by letting you (re)discover your inner self. I am convinced that, in their core, people know what they want and what is best for them. As a coach, it is my role to bring your own answers to your questions to the surface.

I will help you to focus on you: to find your dreams, break through barriers and explore your potential and talents. So you will discover your own answers to questions such as “What do I really want to achieve?” and “What do I need to get there?” and “How do I get there?”.

Als gecertificeerd Personal Life Coach help ik mensen bij gewenste veranderingen in privé of werksfeer en bij stress of onrust passende keuzes te maken. Na de coaching weet je wat je wilt, ben je dicht bij jezelf en kun je met energie en zelfvertrouwen verder gaan.

Mijn specialiteit is jou begeleiden bij het maken van die keuzes. Passende keuzes geven richting en rust in alle denkbare situaties.
De sessies zorgen er voor dat je jouw eigen antwoorden gaat vinden en je waarheid gaat beleven.

Ik help je met:
– Je verlangen in beeld te brengen;
– keuzes te maken en stappen te zetten;
– plannen concreet te verwoorden en te verbeelden;
– durven en in actie te komen;
– leven en werken op de manier die bij je past.

Dit is mogelijk in 1 op 1 sessies via e-Coaching, Skype of in persoon, dus waar je je het meest prettig bij voelt.

Angst kan in het leven een enorme drijfveer zijn om dingen niet te (durven) doen. 25 jaar lang heb ik in loondienst in de pas gelopen. De zekerheid van een vast salaris weerhield mij ervan om andere keuzes en verlangens die ik had te overwegen. Totdat ik mijzelf de vraag stelde; leeft het leven mij of leef ik het leven? Ik heb geleerd dat loslaten van wat ik eigenlijk diep in mijn hart niet wil, veel ruimte kan geven. Als je loslaat, durft te vertrouwen op je intuïtie en durft te kiezen met je hart, gaat het immers meestal wel goed. Het verstand wil daarentegen vaak controleren, beheersen en
(be-)grijpen, maar niet loslaten. Mijn ervaring is dat als ik vertrouw op het leven, dat het leven naar mij toe komt. Dan reikt het,  juist door het loslaten van krampachtig gemaakte besluiten,  die zaken aan die op dat moment bij mij passen en nodig zijn.

Ik ben biologisch dynamisch agrariër geweest, ik heb als teamleider met kinderen en jongeren gewerkt en ik heb 25 jaar lang ervaring binnen profit- en non-profit organisaties als personeelsmanager en adviseur. Ik heb afscheid genomen van mijn werk als personeelsmanager. Mijn missie is om mensen, teams en organisaties tot authenticiteit te brengen, juist door keuzes te maken die bij hen passen. Dit doe ik als onafhankelijk en zelfstandig coach en trainer.

Als klant kun je rekenen op mijn betrokkenheid, discretie, duidelijkheid, een warm hart en resultaat.

Je kunt me altijd een e-mail sturen of kijken of ik beschikbaar ben op telefoonnummer
06 – Maar houd er a.j.b. rekening mee dat door de aard van mijn werk ik niet altijd in staat ben direct de telefoon op te nemen of terug te mailen. Maar ik beantwoord altijd je voicemail of e-mail binnen twee dagen.

Bezoek in ieder geval mijn website voor informatie en voor aanmelding.

I started my working career as a trainee at a bank after several years as a law student in Leiden. After several jobs in and out of this bank, I started as a pension and insurance specialist. Later I switched over to a small private bank and became manager at their insurance company. During my period in the financial industry I found out that my real passion is working together with people. I was really interested in what drives people and what makes them successful. I also learned from my colleagues that I was good at coaching and energizing them. I realize that I had to do something with that passion, so I started the MMS Coach training.

Since a few years now I have been active as a Career coach, an Executive coach and as a Team coach. With my long time experience, both as an employee, an entrepreneur and a manager, I hope that I can help people to find their passion and purpose in life and let them realize that we all have talents.

My vision and mission
After I got out of service at the bank I learned that it is very difficult for people who are fifty plus and lose their job to find a new one. Also a lot of people who have this age lose their motivation to do their work.

I can help those people by vitalizing them. Important is find out what your strengths are and not emphasize what your weaknesses are. Focus on your talents and get them even better. Believe in yourself, don’t always compare with others. You are unique and show it. Age is an advantage, not a disadvantage! Also when you are 50+ there are a lot of things you can achieve and I will help and support you to reach those goals.

For 26 years I worked in the legal business. More than 15 years I was civil notary and entrepeneur from a reputable firm. In 2015 I decided to follow my heart, to quit my job and to become a coach. I want to inspire people to get the best out of themselves and to make their dreams come true.

Consciously Move
I support you to be (more) aware of enjoying your life, to honor your precious time and find the balance between work and private life. I want to make you aware, so that you realise that there is more than just working, taking care and lots of “needs”. You only live once, so make sure you’re enjoying the things you are doing.
As a coach, a human and expert I support you to take matters in your own hands! You yourself know exactly what is good for you. Many times you have tucked it away unconsciously and you are acting in your way now, because some one else wants, or to get compliments or for any other reason.
In my coaching sessions I will ask you the question: what do you want? Muddling or change? This asks for courage, effort, money and energy, but…it will bring you so much: freedom, a smile on your face, a nice body, balance…You are the only one who can make the choice to do something about your own situation. You’re in control, consciously move!

My life
I have a lovely husband and three wonderful children. Besides my family and work I like to make time for running, ice speedscating, yoga, meditation, making music as a violist in a great symphony orchestra, to read, to cook, gardening and be with my friends.
If you like to know more about my approach, please contact me.

I have always followed my own path: a treasure hunt to discover my purpose, building bridges between people, exploring new things every day and using my talents to contribute as much as possible.

This has brought me a really big family, friends in 80 countries around the world and a house in the countryside where I grow my own vegetables (talent there is still under construction…).

After exploring my creative and adventurous side in professional ballet and diving, I have worked as a lawyer, in a law firm and for the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs. As a Chief Compliance & Risk Officer in a big telco I have managed and transformed big teams and advised and closely worked with the Board of Management and Supervisory Board. As a management consultant for McKinsey I advised and coached companies on strategy, change management and big transformations.

From pure management consulting I then made the transition into coaching, management support, and team facilitation. Together with my partners, I support individuals and teams in processes of transformation, taking them into nature and giving them the experience of true communication.

I hold a double masters in law and an INSEAD MBA.

I get my inspiration from travelling, nature, books, music and arts. I love dancing, yoga and (healthy) food.

Gabrielle” vision and mission
My dream is to create a shared awareness of how we, as people, can grow – individually and together. When we make true connections, we access incredible potential and boost our creativity. This makes it possible for us to realize great things. In other words, I believe in magic…especially in making magic together.

Han de Ronde (1951) is coach and loves to sail. “I enjoy speeding in my boat with large white sails continuously adapting to small changes in wind and water to make the boat glide seemingly effortless through the waves. That is also how I envision the coaching process: To support a coachee in his search to find the optimal route through the obstacles people find on their way. To ensure that they continue their career and life fully re-energized and with pleasure.”

“My role as coach is to listen and to ask questions; easy solutions I cannot provide. The answers to all your questions are within you, my role is to make you conscious of these answers. My style is personal and empathetic, but sometimes also clear and confrontational. I have developed this style as a manager at  director level in an international environment, both in large multinationals as well as in small organizations. Additional study has given me the theoretical knowledge of coaching, and I have used and sharpened this knowledge while practicing during my 30-year career.”

“I belief that people can develop the talents they have. Every person is capable of more than he believes himself. The role of the coach is to ensure that all the potential of an individual blossoms.”

For sports coaching I have developed an interest for the application of the “Inner Game of Golf”.

For working with the Lumina Spark  and Lumina Leader personal portrait I have been accredited by Lumina Learning.

My vision and mission
“I have been fascinated during my whole life by talent development. To see the opportunity and grasp it to develop yourself further, to learn from a situation en to be able to make a next step. I practise this myself. That is why I have become a coach.”

In my life I always have been interested in the combination of what people drive and the business they do. I studied business economics and worked almost 20 years in business and management consulting, working on assignments where people make the difference: personally, in teams, in organizations and in network systems. In other words, when people are doing business, they bring their own. I consulted business-wise assignments as well as I coached people.

In my personal life I had to face themes on life and death of children and young adults, family and personal relationships.

Since 2012 I started a coach practice and I organize retreats on personal and career questions together with my wife Marielle and specialized people on body- and energy work. We organize the retreats in a relaxing and inspiring environment.

My vision and mission
A human being is only able to live her or his life when she or he is aware of what she or he has been given: mentally, physical, emotional and spiritual. When a human is able to listen to what these areas tell him, he can live and work more effective, loving, relaxed, spirited and vital.

Some of us are listening to these areas very naturally, but most of us have not learned where to listen and how to listen.

With our retreats we aim to support people in listening deeper, in order to answer their questions on life and work. After a retreat our clients feel their contribution in life more meaningful.

In the “Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy” the answer is 42 but nobody knows what the question is. In real life it’s often the other way round. Sometimes we don’t even know what the question is either, because we are afraid to dream or so estranged from our true self that we cannot find our own questions anymore. That’s where I come in. I love to help you find your questions and answers.

You’re questions may be:

  • Where to go with work or business?
  • How to balance work and home?
  • Why are we always getting in to fights?
  • How to get rid of this vaguely unhappy feeling?

My name is Hester, mother, friend, wife and searcher for happiness.I have a university degree in law and government studies, have worked for the government and in a hospital for many years and am now building my own business.

After a study in chemistry I started working as a project manager at DSM. Later on I switched to the patent department and became a patent attorney. In 2004 I started my own patent company and in addition I started a coaching company, Coachen naar Kracht, in 2009, together with Anneke Ouwerkerk-Renkema. The methods we use here are based on our experience from the MMS course. We created our own 7-step pathway of personal growth. This approach helps people to grow, make changes, and live the life they want. I wrote a book about this theory: “The personal growth accelerator”. I always see the goodness and talents of people, which I use to help them find their own power. I have a well-developed rational and analytical side, I’m open-minded and I have a strong intuition.

My vision and mission
Each person is unique and lives on earth with a certain goal: to discover who you are and what your qualities are, and to use these qualities to contribute to the world and find your own happiness and satisfaction in doing this. The road to this goal differs for each person. Everybody knows his/her own pathway the best, but the journey is not always easy. Sometimes you need a little support. Then I, as a coach, can help you to get back on track by asking the right questions. My passion is to support people on their journey and contribute to their personal growth.

Being an expatriate for over 15 years, I have extensive experience with individuals from diverse personal and professional background and cross-cultural environments. My cultural awareness, holistic approach, and passion for human growth and development form the basis of my service as a global coach.

Teaching meditation for several years, after attending spiritual retreats in Dubai, India, Malaysia and Thailand, deepened my sense of wholehearted service to others. Guiding, coaching, mentoring and inspiring people became my second nature. My wish is to empower others to reveal their authenticity, find their integrity and enter the world of multi-possibilities.  My strength and charisma come from a visionary attitude, yogic focus, emotional intelligence and intuitive approach. Inner voice, nature’s wisdom and sense of humour are my ultimate teachers in life.

Today, as a MMS coach, yoga teacher and subtle activist, I share my knowledge and experience by offering yogic lifestyle coaching and holistic mentoring. In my sessions I put emphasis on establishing an action plan that honors the process of self-discovery and on gaining a sense of control and flow by moving from the judgment mentality of right and wrong and into self-awareness. Moreover, I observe that the most inspiring and enriching for my clients is learning to appreciate the journey – as much as arriving at a destination.

Joanna’s vision and mission
Thanks to my extensive travels and previous career as a flight attendant, I look at coaching session as a journey. A client who chooses coaching with me will reach from where he is to where he wants to be. Assisting people to comfortably and safely get to their final destination was my role as a stewardess, and is a new one as a coach.

Using this metaphor I would like to invite you to see coaching as a way of exploring and discovering new places, especially the ones hidden deep inside your heart. Everybody loves traveling and knows that it broadens the mind. Working with me is like having a ticket to your inner world. Together, we will explore what your inner landscape looks like and how you want to journey though it. Knowing your inner world will impact how you travel though your outer world.

Clients often tell me that they appreciate going off the beaten path to find their inner map and hidden treasures. The inner journey coaching isn’t about fixing yourself but rather discovering your natural strengths and talents and accepting true purpose of your life. It is about learning to navigate through mental turbulences and avoiding emotional crash landing J

I’d like to sum ​​up the power of coaching by quoting M. Benanov: ‘ you travel faster alone, but farther together ‘.

After about 30 years work experience at ABN-Amro Bank I have chosen to leave the bank and focus on coaching people. Since 2008 I am an MMS certified coach. I started my own business in 2014. My specialty is to accommodate clients in changing processes, especially at financial and work related issues. Both are very close to my own experience and feelings.

The most important part of making choices is the right feeling. My passion is helping my clients to become aware what really is important for them.

I am able to coach in English, however, my preference is coaching in Dutch.


Mijn specialiteit: het begeleiden van mensen in veranderingsprocessen bij het maken van de juiste keuze bij financiële vraagstukken en werkgerelateerde problemen.

Financieel vraagstuk:

  • overdracht van familievermogen
  • testamenten en schenkingsconstructies
  • echtscheiding
  • gevolgen in privé bij een familiebedrijf
  • bedrijfsopvolging, bedrijfsoverdracht of bedrijfsovername
  • budgettering en beleid

Werkgerelateerd probleem:

  • probleem met de manager/het management
  • probleem met de afdeling
  • terugkomst na een periode van afwezigheid
  • problemen vóór, tijdens of na een burn-out
  • reorganisatie en dreigend ontslag
  • pensionering

Ik zet mijn eigenschappen en ervaring in om mijn cliënt bij te staan met het in gang zetten van veranderingsprocessen. Daarbij houd ik altijd de menselijke waarden in het oog, zonder te oordelen of ‘het beter te weten’. Wel met alle feiten op tafel, hoe complex deze ook zijn. Altijd doe ik een beroep op het gevoel van mijn cliënt.

Mijn cliënt moet zich goed voelen bij de gemaakte keuze!

Bijna 30 jaar was ik in dienst bij ABN Amro en deed daar veel ervaring op in bestuurlijke, strategische en uitvoerende functies. Ik werkte op verschillende commerciële (zakelijk en particulier) en organisatorische afdelingen. Ook vervulde ik diverse managementfuncties.

2003: burn-out. Dankzij mijn burn-out ben ik geconfronteerd met de discrepantie tussen mijn werk en mijn kernwaarden en kwaliteiten. Dit leidde tot een wending in mijn loopbaan, met als doel: de mens meer centraal stellen in mijn werk.

Na een professionele opleiding tot MMS gecertificeerd coach verliet ik de bank. Mijn persoonlijke eigenschappen (luisteren zonder te oordelen, de juiste vragen stellen, open houding, empathisch vermogen en vertrouwelijke uitstraling) sluiten goed aan en blijken zeer waardevol te zijn.

Mijn visie en leidend principe is: evenwicht tussen verstand en gevoel en fysieke conditie is bepalend voor het welbevinden van ieder mens.

Vanuit die visie is de inbreng van feiten en afwegingen van grote betekenis. Ook heel belangrijk is dat mijn cliënt weet en voelt van welke keuze hij meer of minder gelukkig wordt. Mijn rol is om mijn cliënt in staat te stellen de verbinding tussen ‘feiten en afwegingen’ en de ‘gevoelsmatige gevolgen’ hiervan zichtbaar te maken. Het uiteindelijke resultaat is dat mijn cliënt dan zelf de bij hem passende keuze kan maken.

Ik ben een coach voor jou als “walk your talk” resoneert. Wanneer jij stappen wilt zetten en je datgene kunt veranderen wat je daadwerkelijk wilt veranderen. Het (her)vinden van dat wat je drijft, vanuit je eigen (veer)kracht, zodat je kunt varen op je eigen koers. Alles wat zich aandient is waardevolle informatie om mee te werken. Ik richt me op het werken vanuit jouw intrinsieke motivatie, potentie en kansen die in jouw situatie opgesloten liggen.

Ik ben als coach en trainer opgeleid bij het Amerikaanse The MMS Worldwide Institute, onder leiding van dr. Cherie Carter-Scott. De opleiding is geaccrediteerd door de European Mentoring & Coaching Council (EMCC) en de Nederlandse Orde van Beroepscoaches (NOBCO) en heeft een European Quality Award (EQA).

Een verdiepende coachtraining en supervisie programma volgde ik bij de Amerikaanse Alan Seale – Transformational Presence voor leiders & coaches. Door Transformational Presence Coaching zal je als coachee jouw eigen potentieel ontdekken en ontwikkelen, op een ogenschijnlijke simpele manier. Door het zien van kansen kun je keuzes maken die jou echt vooruit doen gaan.

Naast persoonlijke aspecten spelen er vaak ook andere factoren. Ik ben opgeleid bij het Bert Hellinger Instituut als begeleider van organisatieopstellingen en mijn interventies hebben vaak een systemische aanpak teneinde inzicht te verkrijgen in onderliggende patronen en dynamieken.


  • professionals
  • bestuurders
  • managers
  • leidinggevenden

In alle rust jouw situatie waarnemen, overzien en verkennen. Bewust worden van patronen, verlangen, behoeften en/of krachten. En wat je ervan weerhoudt. Vanuit daar zien wie je bent en wat er naar je toe wilt komen. Zelf die beweging creëren.

Ik werk met je. Ik moedig je aan. Ik stel je vragen. Ik spiegel. Ik geef je steun, slechts waar dat nodig is. En ik laat je.

Na mijn studie Rechten ben ik met Groningse nuchterheid de inhoud ingedoken en ben ik vooral op mijn kracht en zakelijkheid gevaren. Ik deed meer dan 25 jaar ervaring op in zorg en onderwijs, van advocaat tot leidinggevende. Ik ken de sectoren door en door vanuit meerdere perspectieven. In 2009 is er iets wezenlijks veranderd. Zoals vaker gebeurt deden persoonlijke gebeurtenissen mij beseffen dat er een andere kant is. Gebeurtenissen die leidden tot inzichten en die mij tot op de dag van vandaag verrijken. Mijn kracht werd veerkracht en mijn zakelijkheid kreeg er “een ziel naast”.

Mijn stijl van werken laat zich het beste omschrijven als scherp, eerlijk, creatief en intuïtief. Of ik nou werk als organisatieadviseur, interim-leidinggevende, coach of trainer: ik hou er van om samen naar de plek der moeite te kijken en te blijven bewegen wanneer lastige situaties zich voordoen in jezelf, team of organisatie. Dan samen werken om vervolgens beter te worden.

I recently graduated MMS Institute in The Netherlands and I am now a certified coach. My main goal in becoming certified is to simply better people’s lives. I feel that my life experiences have given me broad and challenging lessons which make me a good coach. I have seen amazing transformations, breakthroughs and positive changes in my client’s lives.

I want to help others find their true voice by first feeling grounded and secure. I want to support my clients to be present, in-tune, authentic, intuitive, energetic, do what they love, be with who they choose, communicate clearly, move smoothly through transitions, let go of what they cannot change, make difficult decisions, ask for the raise that they deserve, and so much more. Through my coach training, I have learned valuable tools that have taught me how to actively listen to my clients.  By using opened ended questions, I support my clients in arriving at a place where they know what they want and what they need to do to achieve it. Together we devise a plan of action and bridge the gap between where my client is now and where they want to be. I want to help foster my client’s ability to HAVE IT ALL!

Currently, I am living with my French companion just outside of Paris. We love traveling, working out, mountain bike riding, listening to live music, and experiencing wonderful restaurants. I am still trying to learn French, but I certainly enjoy the European lifestyle. Charles has 3 sons who live nearby, and I am a proud mother of twin daughters who are living in San Francisco together.

My name is Lonny de Schrijver-Verbrugge (1974). I’m married and proud mum to a daughter (2000) and two sons (2003 and 2006). Both the boys have been diagnosed with ADD and the oldest has also severe dyslexia. They are my triggers to do what I’m doing today. Before this I was the owner of a children’s daycare center. This gave me the experience of helping children and supporting parents. When I faced some changes in my work at the daycare center I had to make a choice: keep on doing this ór start something new. Starting something new was quiet scary, but working with children and their parents is truly a passion to me. So I took the opportunity to start working as a coach for parents and children.

Ever since I’ve done a lot of learning. Not only am I a certified MMS-coach (that’s where it all started!), I also specialized in helping children with troubles in learning, behavior and development and helping parents to raise their children in the way they’ve always dreamt of.
To me helping children and their parents is not just looking at the problems surfacing, but looking at the root of the problem and solving it there! That way it’s gone!

My vision and mission

Another strategy
Ever since things got clear about the ADD my oldest son has, and later with our youngest, my interest in children who did have troubles at school, at home and developing, which was there all along, grew. I saw he was a boy with qualities that didn’t blossom at school. When I helped him to make progression at school and at home I decided that it shouldn’t be just for my kid, but that I wanted to help other children and parents as well.

So by showing children and parents what qualities they have in them instead of focusing on the problems and by making them grow that way, that’s where my passion grew, too. Focusing on qualities not only works at school, but also at home, where children are learning all the time as well. And if you are aware of you strengths, you can use that, always. Not only as a child, but certainly as a parent, too.

  • individual coaching within business context (managers and leaders) and outside (personal choices, personal development, discovering your strengths)
  • coaching of (management)teams

I started my career in the late 80’s in external communication (advertising) and moved on toward brand development and organizational identity assignments. I grew more and more interested in the organization itself and the people behind the brand promise . From 2003 I am focused on organizational, personal and leadership development. Mainly in service organizations, from financials to health care. And in personal coaching.

Attending to the CT was very special and important to me because besides enhancing en developing my coaching skills it encouraged me to fully trust my intuition. Which has never let me down.

My vision and mission
I am known as a warm and at the same time goal oriented coach and management consultant. I respect and honor what you feel and experience right now and what may hold you back and I will invite you to discover how strong and free you really are. I believe we all should be in charge of our own life and choices.

My sources of inspiration are the MMS CT (participant and facilitator in 2005) as well as other psychological studies (degree in Jungian psychology, familiar with character structures). For whom of you may be interested in a more spiritual approach: I am trained in astrology and tarot. I relax with art, literature, music, good food and wine.

My business oriented coaching sessions often take place in the working environment of the client, but all individual coachees (private or business oriented) are more than welcome in my home office in Amsterdam Oud-Zuid near the Museumplein and the Vondelpark.



Ik ben mijn loopbaan eind jaren ’80 begonnen in de externe communicatie (reclame) en ging van daaruit verder met merkontwikkeling en vraagstukken rond de identiteit van organisaties.

Ik ging me steeds meer interesseren voor de organisatie en de mensen achter het ‘verhaal naar buiten’. Vanaf 2003 richt ik me volledig op organisatie-, persoonlijke- en leiderschapsontwikkeling. Ik werk vooral voor dienstverlenende organisaties, van financiële instellingen tot zorg. Daarnaast coach ik particulieren.

Deelnemen aan de CT was voor mij een bijzondere en belangrijke ervaring, omdat ik daar niet alleen mijn coaching vaardigheden verder heb kunnen ontwikkelen, maar vooral omdat het mij gestimuleerd heeft om volledig op mijn intuïtie te vertrouwen. Die laat me nooit in de steek.

Mijn visie en missie
Ik sta bekend als een warme en tegelijk doelgerichte coach en adviseur. Ik heb respect en een open oor voor wat de cliënt voelt en ervaart en waar hij /zij mogelijk door tegengehouden wordt en nodig van daaruit de cliënt uit om te ontdekken dat hij in essentie sterk en vrij is. Ik geloof dat we zelf de leiding moeten nemen over ons leven en verantwoordelijk zijn voor de keuzes die we maken.

Mijn inspiratiebronnen zijn de MMS CT (ik was deelnemer en facilitator in 2005) evenals andere psychologische opleidingen (Jungiaanse psychologie, karakterstructuren)

Voor degenen die geïnteresseerd zijn in een meer spirituele benadering: ik ben vertrouwd met en getraind in astrologie en tarot. Ontspanning vind ik in kunst, muziek, literatuur, goed eten en goede wijn.

Business gerelateerde coaching sessies vinden vaak plaats bij de cliënt in de werkomgeving. Maar alle individuele coachees, zowel zakelijk als particulier, zijn ook van harte welkom in mijn kantoor aan huis in Amsterdam Oud-Zuid, vlakbij het Museumplein en het Vondelpark.

Als Business Coach support ik (management) teams, individuen en organisaties in het behalen van hun doelen. Ik ben een expert in het coachen naar een heldere visie en dit te koppelen aan het gedrag van de mensen in de organisatie. Als team-coach werk ik vanuit de passie van het combineren van organisatie-doelen met de kracht en energie van mensen.

In 1999 volgde ik mijn passie en startte mijn eigen bedrijf in coaching en training. Daarvoor had ik leidende posities in management teams in internationale organisaties. Mijn laatste functie was marketing manager bij Sara Lee.

Aan de Erasmus Universiteit heb ik een MBA bedrijfskunde behaald en daarnaast ben ik afgestudeerd in de Nederlandse Taal – en letterkunde. Ik ben geaccrediteerd voor Real Drives. Ik ben verbonden aan de MMS coach training als team-lid en ben spreker voor de Avicenna Leadership Academy voor de onderwerpen visie ontwikkeling en cultuur verandering.

Mijn visie en missie:
Tijdens mijn werk als marketing manager in internationale bedrijven, ontdekte ik veel angst en negativiteit onder medewerkers. Dit blokkeerde samenwerking, innovatie, energie en creativiteit.

Organisaties kunnen alleen succesvol zijn als de mensen in de organisatie hun volle potentieel kunnen inzetten. Vertrouwen is een belangrijke succesfactor om flow en het volle potentieel te bereiken.

Mijn missie is om menselijkheid, vertrouwen en het volle potentieel van mensen terug te brengen in teams en organisaties. Zodat ze daarmee hun doelen bereiken en duurzaam succesvol zijn.

Typische klantvragen zijn:

  • We willen een andere koers gaan varen, maar hoe krijgen we de mensen daarin mee?
  • Hoe kunnen we de samenwerking, onderlinge communicatie of effectiviteit van ons team of onze organisatie verbeteren?
  • Hoe kan ik vanuit mijn eigen kracht aansluiten bij de doelen en wensen van deze organisatie ?
  • Wie kan ik zijn als leider in deze organisatie of verandering?

Als business coach breng ik vertrouwen, ben mensgericht, resultaat gedreven en helder.

Specialties: Transformational Coaching, Life Coaching, Team Coaching, Systemic Approach

After a study business administration at Nyenrode University I enjoyed working in the branches of architecture and industrial design. Early 1994 I finished the MMS Coach Training. Following this period, until 2001, I managed my own company from London and Amsterdam in coaching, communication advice and text & editing.

Coaching and training has been my main professional activity since 2001. For corporate and for private clients, both inside and outside of The Netherlands. Until 2008 I have facilitated many of the Inner Negotiation Workshops (INW) of MMS in The Netherlands. I enrolled in the masters course Conflict Management at Maastricht University and participated in many different workshops on (systemic) family constellations (Bert Hellinger). In 2008 I finished a course in systemic thinking and working, between 2009 and 2015 ‘Living and Working from the soul’. Since March 2009 I am a certified facilitator of the Inner Links Transformation Game.

Married, mother of a studying son, enjoying dachshund Hansje, city trips, arts, walking, watching movies, reading, cooking healthy meals and the silence.

Vision and mission
‘I’m standing still for a moment, which is good progress.’ (Bertolt Brecht)

I’d love to help you to get the most out of yourself. Not by giving you directions but by encouraging you to find your own direction and to walk your personal path. You are leading. My approach is intuitive, reflective and result driven. I will ask clear questions and provide you with useful feedback. In holding the mirror and by putting on my systemic glasses I will support you when needed.

After completing my degree in electrical engineering I joined a well-known Dutch electronics company. While moving through the ranks from engineer to manager I was inevitably confronted with the limitations of my engineering-centric view of the world. Thankfully I had managers over time that enabled me to follow many trainings and workshops culminating in the Coach Training. It made me a more complete person, manager and engineer and I enjoy the fruits of it in my private and professional life. Although I am not a professional coach, but still work as engineer, manager and entrepreneur in the technical field, I am happy to pass on everything I learned so that others can enjoy the same benefits that I did.

Peter’s vision and mission
The potential of most people goes way beyond their own beliefs and those of their manager or boss at work. We are all very good at coming up with reasons why we cannot or should not overcome obstacles and set the next step. Blaming our manager is one of the favorite excuses when it comes to work related challenges. As a manager, we might feel trapped by “the system”.

My mission is to help you move ahead by confronting your obstacles and excuses and finding positive ways to deal with them.

Specialties: Executive – Management coaching, Personal coaching, Career coaching & Counselling

After my graduation (MSc in Psychology, University of Amsterdam) I have been working for more than 12 years at different (psychological) consulting firms, including Hudson and GITP. I have gained experience as a trainer, coach and assessment psychologist. In 2010
I started as a self-employed psychologist and specialised as a coach by following the MMS Coach Training.

Currently I run my own coaching practice in Amsterdam. I coach people with their personal and professional development and help them to get the best out of themselves.

My clients are primarily in the financial services (RBS, ABN Amro, ING), consulting (Accenture) and IT (IBM).

My vision and mission:
Since I can remember I am fascinated by understanding and managing (personal) change. How come we always get stuck in old patterns? Why do we find it so hard to change effectively? Deep down we know what to do, but we find it hard to take the necessary steps to get there. During my coaching sessions I will help you find your authentic self by focussing on your talents and developing your potential. You will be able to connect with what you feel inside. This will help you to find the answers to the questions you have. By removing limiting beliefs and by breaking old patterns new possibilities evolve and you can actually start to change.

In my coaching I include aspects of MMS coaching, motivational interviewing, solution focused coaching, and transactional analysis. I help you increase your personal effectiveness when things get ‘political’. By developing your social antennae and strengthening your communication skills, you will increase your personal impact in (multidisciplinary) project teams.


Specialties: Executive – Management coaching, Personal coaching, Loopbaancoaching & Counseling

Na mijn wetenschappelijke studie Psychologie ben ik ruim 12 jaar werkzaam geweest bij verschillende (psychologische) adviesbureaus, waaronder Hudson en GITP. Ik heb daar ervaring opgedaan als trainer, assessment psycholoog en coach. In 2010 heb ik de stap gezet naar zelfstandig ondernemerschap en ben ik mij verder gaan specialiseren in (Executive) coaching.

Op dit moment werk ik vanuit mijn eigen praktijk in Amsterdam en begeleid ik mensen bij hun persoonlijke en professionele ontwikkeling.

Mijn opdrachtgevers bevinden zich met name in de financiële dienstverlening (RBS, ABN Amro, ING), zakelijke dienstverlening (Accenture) en IT (IBM).

Mijn visie en missie:
Sinds ik me kan herinneren ben ik gefascineerd door mensen en (gedrags-) verandering. Hoe komt het dat we steeds vastlopen in oude patronen? Waarom vinden we het zo moeilijk om te veranderen? Vaak weten we diep van binnen wat goed voor ons is, maar ondernemen we niet de stappen die nodig zijn om dit te bereiken. Tijdens mijn coach gesprekken gaan we samen op zoek naar jouw authentieke zelf, jouw talenten en kwaliteiten. Ik breng je in contact met je gevoel en met je innerlijke kracht en ik help je om zelf de antwoorden te vinden op de vragen die je hebt. Door belemmerende gedachten te overwinnen en oude patronen te doorbreken komt er ruimte vrij voor nieuwe mogelijkheden en kom je in beweging.

Daarnaast ondersteun ik professionals bij het vergroten van hun persoonlijke effectiviteit binnen een politiek krachtenveld. Door het ontwikkelen van je sociale voelsprieten en het versterken van je communicatieve vaardigheden help ik jou je impact te vergroten binnen (multidisciplinaire) projectteams.
Mijn aanpak is no-nonsense en doelgericht, met weinig informatie weet ik de vinger op de zere plek te leggen. Ik geef concrete adviezen waar je meteen mee aan de slag kunt. Op deze manier krijg jij weer de regie over je eigen loopbaan, verandertraject of (persoonlijke) ontwikkeling. In mijn coaching pas ik o.a. aspecten toe van MMS coaching, Motiverende Gespreksvoering, Oplossingsgericht coachen, en Transactionele Analyse. Door verschillende methoden te combineren sluit ik aan bij jouw vraagstelling en stem ik zoveel mogelijk af op jouw specifieke situatie.

Reinier’s vision and mission:

As a process engineer, I believe in clarity and structure to support understanding and effectiveness and the power of the left brain.

As a Buddhist, I believe in wisdom and compassion to enhance connection to self and others.

Both serve to improve effectiveness, deepen consciousness and create more happiness.

In this way, I love to be of service. I truly believe there is more to every single one of us.

Specialties: life coaching, (work) coaching of (future) medical doctors

Born in 1959, working as an anesthesiologist, and as trainer and coach of (future) medical doctors and MMS coach since spring 2014.

As a medical student I directed a musical. My greatest joy came from helping the actors (who were peer students) to find their inner strength and realise their maximum potential on stage.

Many years later, working as a pain doctor, I discovered that the most satisfying part of my work was not so much the medical part, but to accompany the patients on their intimate and personal journey to cope with their pain. I realized than (remembering the musical) that I would really enjoy to accompany healthy people on their journey to cope with life and the choices life brings.

It took me another twenty years of wandering to actually full this and make it a part of my work. The MMS coach training was the cherry on the cake of my personal journey. In my own coach process during the training I experienced the beneficence that the careful attention given by an MMS coach brings and how that attention helped me to find and solve obstacles and to come into action.

My vision and mission
Everybody arrives at crossing points in their life wondering: am I on the right path? These crossing points are connected to life issues such as relationships, work, family, friendships. You can be confused, you don’t know any more what it is that you really want, which road to take? At such a crossing point I can help you:

  • to unravel, provide insight in and sort out the ‘confusion’ in your head
  • to focus your attention on what really matters to you and to find out what you really want with your head and your heart
  • to come into action and take concrete steps to go there where you really want to be.

I believe and I know that you yourself have the answers and the possibilities. I would be happy and honoured to accompany you on your journey.

Specialties: Life coaching, Relatie Coaching en relatietherapie (EFT), Houd Me Vast trainer, Psycholoog (EMDR, ACT, REBT), Healing

After my Psychology Studies, I worked for 5 years as an account manager within the ICT. Since I realized that I couldn’t fulfill my potential and couldn’t help the organization the way they deserved, I changed my course and started working in my own practice as a Psychologist and coach in 1993. At about the same time, I started living together with my partner and we began the process of creating a family. Since we’re with 2 women, that took a little more effort and planning than in the more usual families.

In 2003 I did the CT (Coaches Training) and the lady founders of the MMS and I immediately “recognized” each other. After finishing my own training I was involved as coordinator of the CT for 4 times.

From 2008-2013 I took a training to become a Non-Dual Kabbalistic Healer and participated in the team to facilitate the next training group.

The people who find me come from a diverse background and with a multitude of questions and/or objectives. You can learn more about that via my website

As you can see there, the values that guide my life are Safety, Freedom and Connection

My vision and mission
Helping people to become as flexible as possible in dealing with life, so that they can fulfill their dreams and contribute to the best of their ability.


Specialiteiten: Life coaching, Relatie Coaching en relatietherapie (EFT), Houd Me Vast trainer, Psycholoog (EMDR, ACT, REBT), Healing

Na mijn psychologie studie, heb ik 5 jaar als account manager in de ICT gewerkt. Toen duidelijk werd dat ik de organisatie niet meer kon bieden wat er nodig was én zij mij niet konden bieden wat ik graag wilde, veranderde ik van koers. In 1993 ben ik een praktijk gestart als zelfstandig psycholoog en coach.

Rond die tijd ging ik ook samenwonen met mijn partner en begonnen wij met de start van onze familie. Aangezien we met 2 vrouwen zijn, vroeg dat iets meer inspanning en planning dan bij een meer gebruikelijke gezinsvorm.

In 2003 heb ik de CT (Coaches Training) gevolgd en er was een onmiddellijke herkenning tussen Lynn, Chérie and mij. Nadat ik mijn eigen training had afgerond, be ik betrokken geweest als coordinator van 4 volgende Coaches Trainingen.

Tussen 2008-2013, heb ik een training gevolgd en gegeven in Non-Dual Kabbalistic Healing

De mensen die mij vinden als coach en/of therapeut, komen van veel verschillende achtergronden en met een veelheid aan vragen en/of doelstellingen. Meer hierover kun je vinden via mijn website:

Daar vind je ook welke waarden belangrijk zijn voor mij in mijn persoonlijke en professionele leven:

Veiligheid, Verbinding en Vrijheid.

Mijn visie en missie
Mensen helpen zo flexible mogelijk te worden in hun leven, zodanig dat zij hun dromen kunnen verwerkelijken en naar vermogen kunnen bijdragen aan deze Maatschappij.

Ik zie er naar uit je te ontmoeten!
