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.

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.

Specialties:  Life coaching, executive coaching, mediation (done a lot as notary public) and team coaching

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.

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.

Als Business Coach support ik (management) teams, individuen en organisaties in het behalen van hun doelen.

Als team-coach werk ik vanuit de passie van het combineren van organisatie-doelen met de kracht en energie van mensen.

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.

A food process engineer by training, I have spent over sixteen years in international business leading supply chain up to board level, then to realize my heart was not really in it. Since 2007 I run my own business in coaching, (intercultural) communication, constellation work and team facilitation. I also co-lead leadership journeys to for instance Bhutan. These until now have been the happiest years in my life, having followed my passion for people.

After also sixteen years of living in sin, I happily married Joke in 2013 and still enjoy every moment of it. My other great love is my violin. I work in Dutch, English or German.


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.

Be welcome to find out!
