in work and private life
Originally from the Netherlands, I have 25 years of international corporate experience as an HR professional (UK, Netherlands, Taiwan, Japan). As an HR Director for a global professional services firm I provided business coaching to professionals at all levels. As an independent coach I have given life coaching to individuals at a point in their lives where they had lost focus and needed to rethink the direction in which they were going. I have worked with many women who wanted to overcome their anxieties and find the confidence to follow their dreams and aspirations. I have also helped working parents to find the right work/life balance and I have supported ’empty nesters’ and expat wives find a new purpose in life.
Anxiety and Depression
If you struggle with anxiety and depression, I highly recommend reading Russ Harris’ book, The Happiness Trap. This book is down to earth and gives simple tools to help you deal with your problems. I use these tools in my coaching sessions and my coachees have found them very helpful.
