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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
