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 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.

Vision and Mission: ‘When you drop from your mind into your heart, life is clear and purposeful’
My name is Brechje van Geenen and I am Life coach, specialised in coaching individuals in situations of loss, for example relationships through divorce / separation. I bring together personal and professional challenges.
My goal is to support my clients for them to endure the grieving process in a wholesome way, so that they can take back control of their lives and continue working and grow personally.
In my coaching I use my intuition, and am experienced and accredited in tools such as Barrett Values, systemic coaching, Byron Katie, Nonviolent Communication, Iceberg coaching & ‘Succesvol Scheiden method’ to create the opportunity for interactive and transformational sessions.
With more than fifteen years of experience in Professional Development and Operations with McKinsey & Company and as consultant in Malawi, I bring a solid all-round HR background, business knowledge and project management skills. As a divorced mom and employee I bring my own experience.
I am native in Dutch and fluent in English and coach in both languages. I prefer face-to-face coaching, however Skype coaching is possible.
Together with my two sons, I live in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Mijn naam is Brechje van Geenen en ik ben Life coach, gespecialiseerd in het coachen van mensen in verliessituaties zoals scheidingen. Zo breng ik persoonlijke en professionele vraagstukken bij elkaar.
Mijn doel is mijn cliënten ondersteunen, waardoor zij het verliesproces op een goede manier kunnen doorlopen, zodat zij binnen afzienbare tijd weer grip op hun leven krijgen en aan het werk kunnen (blijven) en persoonlijk door blijven groeien.
Ik werk voornamelijk vanuit mijn intuïtie en heb kennis van en ben geaccrediteerd in verscheidene technieken, zoals Barrett Values, systemisch coachen, Byron Katie, Geweldloze Communicatie, IJsberg coaching & de “Succesvol Scheiden” methode, om de coaching interactief te maken en een setting te creëren voor transformatie.
Door ruim 15 jaar werkervaring in Professional Development/ HR en operations bij McKinsey&Company en als consultant in Malawi, Afrika heb ik een allround HR achtergrond, zakelijk inzicht en project management ervaring. Daarnaast ben ik ervaringsdeskundige als gescheiden moeder en werkneemster.
Ik coach zowel in het Nederlands als in het Engels. Het liefst in persoon, maar Skype coaching is ook mogelijk.
Samen met mijn twee zoons woon ik in Amsterdam.
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.
- 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?
Inner Negotiation Workshop Licensee and leader in Holland
Caroline Wamsteker is an MMS trained Coach, facilitator, and leader since 2008. Together with Wendy van Leusen she is Licensed to promote, produce, and present the MMS Inner Negotiation Workshops (INW) in the Netherlands.
She facilitated and led more than 25 INW’s in The Netherlands and is launching internationally. She also leads the MMS Master Class and trains MMS future leaders and facilitators. In the MMS Continuum, Journey to the Next Level, she and Wendy support individuals taking the next step in their personal development.
In her own company she coaches and trains people who want to connect to what they really want in life to find ways to turn that into reality. She works instinctively and purposeful, with both feet on the ground, concretely and effectively. Always with a listening ear and respect for whatever it is that moves her clients.
Before finding her inspiration in coaching she worked as an event manager in a Concert and Congress hall and the Royal Theatre of The Hague. Next to that she is a serial entrepreneur as co-owner of a beach club and a Jazz club.
She lives in Scheveningen (The Hague at sea) with her husband Ed, youngest daughter, dog and cat. She loves reading, walking in nature, connecting with friends, gardening, cooking, and swimming in the sea.
I am 52 years old and the happy father of 3 sons. I live in Paris with my companion Lindsey Taylor the love of my life who is the mother of 2 daughters and is coach as well. I feel blessed and lucky to be in good health surrounded by the love of my loved ones and friends.
After a diversified carrier in sales and management I helped people to build and grow their own company by investing, sharing my network, know how, and experience in an investment structure with my brother in law.
After the mother of my children and I were separated, we stopped working together. I continue to accompany my friends and network; by listening to them, sharing experiences, supporting them in any way in an informal structure.
I am now a certified coach from MMS and work as a professional coach.
My vision and mission:
Building a trusting relationship, I wish to accompany and empowering you to be fully yourself and live your life in truth, finding your own happiness.
Listening to you, helping you to define your objectives, connecting to your feelings, bringing out the right questions and finding your own answers to lead you anywhere you want and to fully reach your Life potential and Love connection.
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 – 220.127.116.11. 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.

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.
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!
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.
Areas of specialization: executive coaching, realising female potential in organisations, international careers, international family life, change management.
From purpose to action, from ideas to reality:
Bringing the best out of people and helping them to turn their individual purpose into reality is my passion. This passion has shaped my own life, too: as a student I worked in political organisations to advance democracy and peace, as a leader in various multi-national companies I embraced and practised the values I believe in. In this moment of my life, I want to bring all my competencies and skills to individuals and organisations who can benefit from someone who is analytical and creative, empathetic and tough, serious and full of humour: that is me.
In coaching, I build on my skills as an MMS graduate at ACC level and on my wealth of experience as a Senior Marketing Executive in various international organisations. I enjoy working with individuals and with teams, and we can talk in German, English and French. Individual coaching I offer in person and remotely.
I am a delighted mother of three (rather grown-up) children, I have lived and worked in Germany, UK, France, Switzerland and the Netherlands. I enjoy cooking (and eating), travels, reading, Yoga, Golf and many other things the universe throws in my path.
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.
On the website you will also find actual references and my code of conduct.
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.”
Specialties: Work/life, relations, ADHD
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?

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.
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
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.

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.
Life is a ride on the waves. The waves of life. I invite you to be the surfer of your life.
As a life & leadership coach I learn people to surf the waves of life by supporting them to find the light beneath the surface.
