Coaching is a professional relationship that enables a client to move forward in his or her life, work or business with greater clarity, focus, momentum, success and happiness. Through partnering with the coach in a thought-provoking and creative process that helps a client to build awareness around oneself and ones’ thoughts and beliefs – which are responsible for the reality we experience – a coach inspires a client to create his or her own answers to maximize their personal and professional potential and implement change toward personal and professional growth.

Coaching is a process. It is a relationship that focuses on coach and coachee as a team. It is a “we are on the same level and together we will figure it out” – approach and not a “I know better than you and tell you what to do” – approach. The coach-coachee relationship functions as a partnership, where planning, decision-making, and evaluation are shared responsibilities

All the answers are inside the client and a coach enables each client to find his or her “right” answers. Only a client truly knows what is best for him or herself.

A coach does not “tell” a client what to do. The client knows already everything they need to know and have the answer inside of them. We as coaches do not need to have all the answers, instead we help to access the knowledge within the client. We help them to come up with their own answers and helping them figure out what they need instead of telling them what to do. Coaching facilitate change and helps a client to be more productive, happier and more effective. It helps others to manage, change and deal with recurring patterns that are holding one back from living ones’ best lives and thus, improve performance and unlock potential.

Coaching is a distinct service and differs greatly from therapy, consulting, mentoring or training. Individuals who engage in a coaching relationship can expect to experience fresh perspectives on personal challenges and opportunities, enhanced thinking and decision making skills, enhanced interpersonal effectiveness, and increased confidence in carrying out their chosen work and life roles.

Through the process and practices a coach brings to the table a client will experience:

  • Awareness: a new way of seeing the situation; a shift in perception
  • Clarity: focused, specific insights, actions and goals
  • Motivation: organically created energy that results from the coaching session, come almost entirely from within the client (energy and excitement for newfound awareness “a-ha”), and which enables the client to reach his or her self-created action for the upcoming agreed-upon timeframe
  • Confidence: power of self-realizing the situation and having the power within and creativity to design one’s own solution. This applies to businesses too. Power of a business executive or team self-realizing the situation and having the power and creativity to design a solution

It is beneficial for everyone because we all have struggles, we all have limiting believes and problems to deal with on a daily basis. And very little of us are aware or even know how to deal with just half of them. Having someone helping you to figure out what is holding you back and developing a strategy to overcome whatever that is can be the solution you’ve been looking for so long.

Mentoring is a relationship where the more experienced mentor may teach or share with a mentee information, knowledge and experiences about his or her own path, as well as provide guidance, motivation, emotional support, and role modelling that will move the mentee further with his or her goals. Mentoring can be one-on-one, distance or group in nature and is based on an open, collaborative, non-judgmental and non-directive approach.

MY COACHING PHILOSOPHY embodies autonomy, compassion, creativity, proximity and sustainability (update)
THE Awareness created in COACHING results in TRANSFORMATIONAL CHANGE. To me the most important thing is to NOT tell you what you should do, but help you find out for yourself. Because only when the solution comes from inside you, it is truly sustainable and effective. I am not thee one to tell you how you should do things or live your life. I am the one guiding and helping you to find the right direction and support you in any way I can.

“To inspire to learn not teaching to do.”

My personal coaching style is greatly based on above definition of coaching. To me it is very important to enable you to live life independently. My approach is a holistic, mentoring coaching style, which means that we trigger all areas of your life and your person, and look for answers inside of you instead of me telling you what to do. You know best what you need, I am only here to guide and help you access the knowledge you have as well as trigger learning, so you can gain new knowledge. My main goal is to give you all the tools and techniques you need to live your best life and master that journey successfully. We are all unique and special and there is no “one size fits all” approach when it comes to moving beyond your limitations and creating and living your DreamLife. That is why it is so important to me that all the answers, solutions and strategies come from within you and not from what I think is best. My opinion doesn’t matter. My job is to help you figure out what works best for you!

Coaching is not a therapy or counselling. Coaching focuses on the present and the future of the client’s life or business, not the past.

A coach is not a therapist, a psychologist, or counsellor delving into the past, diagnosing and/or applying learned techniques for a particular mental or behavioural need.

A coach focuses on the “who” of a person, not the “what”; the client discovers what he or she needs to do versus the coach giving expert advice like a consultant might.

I believe in the power of will. I believe when you want something bad enough anything is possible. I believe when you put your mind to something you can achieve everything.

I have always had the mindset of an athlete. That grit and willpower, that resilience and Conscientiousness that it takes to push through your own lack of motivation. That ability to challenge your fears and keep going despite all the stones that get thrown in your way. When I wanted something, I did everting in my power to make it happen. I never gave up. I would go out there and fight no matter the costs and I would do it even if I am scared even when I “don’t feel like it” I would listen to my heart and it would tell me to go.

The one thing that separates a good person in anything from a high achiever is the mindset. That’s all. It’s just the degree of willpower, the degree to which you can trust and have faith and the degree to which you are able to cope with failure, fears and doubts without letting it get in your way.

For most people the reason that’s holding them back from both, achieving their goals and being happy is only their false sense of themselves. They think they want something but they actually not. And you can see that in their ability to commit and continue to show up. Because if they’d really want it they would be able to show up. Or they would at least try everything to get into that mindset that gets them to show up when they’re not naturally gifted with it. 

And you know that’s the beautiful thing with all this, you can learn that success mindset. All you need is someone to show you how.

And that is why I am a coach. I want to help people develop grit, willpower and resilience. I help them overcome their discrepancies and find out what they truly want and then develop the mindset that’ll get them there. Because only when you know what you really want you can set yourself up for success.

If you continue to chase things you don’t want you’ll never be able to follow through and thus feel unaccomplished and frustrated. You might even doubt yourself and your abilities when the only thing that’s not right is your picture of what you think you want.

So, let’s work together shall we. Let’s remove these discrepancies once am for all and get you into the right mindset to achieve whatever it is that you want.

I know you can do it. You just have to want it bad enough.

There are many reasons for people hiring coaches, but the main reason is because they want support in making a change or need help to get unstuck to move forward.

I as a coach hold the potential to create opportunities for happiness, success and change and thus can move you past your current paradigm and closer to your desired result. Whether that is in personal life or in your work.

Amongst the top 5 people who are hiring coaches are:

  • People who have goals or dreams and want to achieve them faster and easier than they ever thought possible.
  • People who have challenges, stress, and pain that they want support in overcoming.
  • People who want to become (better) life coaches themselves, and correctly realize that the only way to improve one’s skills is to have a coach to help them transcend the blind-spots.

My programs and services are for all enthusiastic, high achieving, curious women, creatives and freebirds who seek everyday inner peace, adventure, joy and freedom; who want to be themselves, make a difference, be successful and want to create a life you don’t need a vacation from.

For all aspiring, passionate and dedicated athletes and performers who want to gain momentum, train their mind, their body and their consciousness, find fulfilment and a road to success.

And finally, for all ambitious, enthusiastic, high achieving students and small business owners who want to make a difference, be successful, find fulfilment and create a lifestyle that make them feel happier, healthier and more accomplished.

So, belong to either one or more of those groups, I can help you to chase your dreams, do what you love, design life according to your means and live in a more fulfilled, happy and more successful way.

(money is also just a form of energy)
Investing into yourself can be scary, I know this first-hand (I invested in my dreams ever since I started chasing them. I invested a 6-figure amount into my business and my personal growth over the course of the last 4 years, and I don’t plan to stop any time soon as I know the immense benefits it’s giving me). But it truly makes all the difference between a good and an extraordinary life.
If you feel called to invest into me as your personal mentor and thus, into your DreamLife, be sure of the fact that I treat your goals like my own.

Change always starts when things get moving. Movement requires some form of action. Drastic movement requires massive action. Action you can take right here, right now.

Transformational coaching is the practice of emotional intelligence.
It’s our purpose to learn and adapt. Our brains are made for this, coaching refers to both inspires to learn, forces you to adapt by challenging your world view which in return trigger transformation that helps you grow and expand.

We all have a natural built in learning capability. Coaching triggers that learning capability by mentoring you to find answers within instead of accessing them from the outside. Through learning and personal growth, which coaching triggers, you can establish strategies and techniques that are sustainable and perfectly aligned with you as a person.

Performance is the degree to which a person can show up in a given situation. High performance is the highest degree to which a person can show up, React or act in a situation according to her abilities.

While there are many different forms of performance, the PET Model distinguishes between these kinds of performances:

  • Mental performance (the degree to which a person can keep her mental health, positivity, resilience and toughness)
  • Physical performance (the degree to which a person can increase, use and maintain their physical fitness and well-being)
  • Personal performance (the degree to which a person can make use of their values, strengths and weaknesses to achieve a goal)
  • Spiritual performance (the degree to which a person can stay aligned and balanced in their self and throughout the areas of their life)
  • Social performance (the degree to which a person can show up, serve and grow in a social setting)

Performance is crucial to unleashing one’s potential and achieve dreams and find happiness. To make use of your potential, the unique skill and trait set that only you have, you need to increase your performance, as performance is key to making use of this toolbox. This toolbox in return will take you to your dreams and self-actualization which essential pillars of happiness. In addition, being able to perform at you best generates this magical essence called flow or momentum. Flow or momentum is a state where effort feels effortless, everything comes naturally to you and a high degree of joy is achieved through working in this state. An increased or prolonged flow state is an awesome way to not only boost excitement and ensure contentment, but also to achieve goals in an easy, almost effortless way.

Performance can be inhibited by many factors including lack of awareness, self-doubts, limiting beliefs, lack of physical fitness, lack of strategies and techniques to make use of the given abilities, lack of mindfulness, lack of alignment, lack of knowledge or practice.

However, through coaching you can work actively on improving your performance, no matter what kind and get a huge step closer to unleashing your potential.

A persons’ potential is the collective package or toolbox of unique skills, traits, beliefs, strengths and weaknesses, talents and experiences collected throughout their lives. Using ones’ potential means to make full use of your collective package of potential without any barriers or limitations in any given situation, to achieve your dreams and show up in the best way possible. Potential can be expanded through awareness, self-development and exposure to the unknown. It can be unleashed through increased awareness and performance and strategic goal setting. Making use of one’s potential is a huge booster of happiness as it triggers self-actualization and opens infinite possibilities for a person to shine and find meaning and purpose.

Mindfulness is the art of living and approach an individual has to itself and life. It is about consciousness, slowness, contentment, love and kindness and enjoying the present moment.

You need to be mindful and take care of your mind and body to be able to have the best experiences of life as it manifests all around you. Living and enjoying life happens in the present moment and to be able to really find happiness you have to allow yourself to be present and mindful to prevent missing out on living life and grateful for this life you get to experience. Mindfulness happens on two levels:

On a mental level:

Mentally speaking mindfulness is about choosing the present moment as your focus. It’s about drawing the focus of your life and thoughts away from past and future and giving up waiting as a state of mind as well as worrying about what has happened or what will happen. Being mentally more mindful allows you to find happiness and peace within the present, within where you are. You stop wanting something back that you had and you stop looking for happiness within things you hope to get on the future. It also allows you to accept the path you are going down and embrace what has happened, is happening or will happen – good and bad – as part of the progress you make on this journey. And lastly it helps you to trust and have faith in everything working out the way it’s supposed to be and on you being able to deal with what is coming your way. The mental part of mindfulness is very interceded with the Mindset work. Like a positive, growth oriented Mindset a mindful Mindset gives you the strength, confidence and trust you need to manifest your dream life as you deserve it.

And a physical level:

On a physical level mindfulness refers to how you act and live life. A mindful approach to living allows you to slow down – even in busy times – and take in this awesome life that is happening right in front of you. It is all about living healthy, taking care of your body and your environment. Treating yourself and others in a loving and Kind way and also allowing yourself to feel what you feel, to do what you need and give to others so you can receive. It’s about listening to your body and giving it what it asks, pushing when it’s time to push and taking breaks when it’s time to take breaks. Mindfulness is key to enjoying life and you need to enjoy life fully to experience and feel this happiness that you are seeking. Living mindful – against what many people think – does not collude with hustling and achieving your goals. In contrary, hustling in a mindful way should be everyone’s goal as this is the only, sustainable way to achieve your goals without losing your mind or suffering a burnout. Choosing to achieve your goals in a mindful way is surrounding to this journey, giving yourself permission to chase your dreams but also to take breaks from hustling when you need them so you can come back more motivated and focused than before. It is being patient with yourself while you are working hard to make your dreams come true and it is forgiving yourself for mistakes you made along this path and for not always living up to your expectations. It is allowing yourself to be happy while you work for more happiness. And here you learn how!

Awareness is the mental state and consciousness an individual hast towards itself, its body, its behaviour, emotions and thoughts, towards life and towards others. Building awareness is how we can initiate transformation. Once we become aware of something we have the power to change it. Awareness helps us to choose our responds instead of reacting out of impulse. Through awareness we can connect deeper with our purpose and meaning (our fulfilment) of life. And we can explore our values and align them with how we live life.
We need to know a) our struggles, to overcome what is holding you back and b) our dreams and what we want, to go for it. Building awareness is very much referring to reflecting on life and yourself as well as your body to get to know yourself better, to figure out what you want and also what is holding you back and needs to be changed, improved or included within yourself and your life so you can create it like you imagine it for yourself and achieve your goals. To create that DreamLife and choose happiness you need to a) know your struggles, to overcome what is holding you back and b) know what you want, to go for it. When it comes to building awareness, reflecting is key. You need to constantly ask yourself why!  Why am I doing this? Why am I thinking this? Why am I feeling this? Why is this happening? Take the awareness that you’ve gained about life and yourself and put it into action trough Self Development. Ask yourself what can I take from it. What needs to be changed? What needs to be included? What needs to be improved? Set goals to overcome those limiting beliefs and habits and also set goals to include more of those things that make you happy and keep you sane. But don’t worry, I teach you how to reflect on your thoughts, feelings and actions and learn from them. I help you discover and craft a better version of yourself. Only by building awareness we can choose ways to transform our lives.
Awareness is to get to know yourself better and learn to reflect on yourself and life so you can take the right decisions and take the right choices that lead you to happiness and personal and professional success.

Self-development is the act of moving past your current paradigm and overcoming limiting beliefs, habits and patterns that keep you away from living the life you imagine for yourself, being the best version of yourself and showing up in your most unique, most authentic way. Self-Development happens on an inter and an intra personal level. It manly happens inside of you, through yourself, through awareness that you gained about your current or past state and which you want to move past through conscious action and goal setting, effort and dedication. But it also happens in an interpersonal level as you get inspired by what to work on through other people, through admiring, looking up to someone and detecting traits you want to implement yourself, or through becoming more aware of your behaviour around or with other people or maybe even through them helping you get this awareness. No matter the reason that implemented self-development or helps you to practice it in a more intentional, it is crucial for you to work on yourself not because you need to be more perfect, but to unleash that magic that is inside of you.

Mindset is inner performance, inner health, mental resilience. It is the foundation for transformation, for happiness and for better performance in life. If your mind is in the right place, anything can happen and you can still enjoy it to the fullest. You learn to deal with struggles and challenges, you learn to appreciate, you learn to stay positive and accept everything that is coming your way as part of the journey towards your dream life. What you think is influencing how you act so the wrong thoughts can lead to the wrong actions which then lead away from the desired outcome. When it comes to using Mindset as a tool to boost success and happiness in your life you need to address two particular changes within it.

Well-being is effective functioning of an individual and effective functioning for a community.  There are three forms of well-being, physical, mentally and socially. Mental well-being can be divided in Hedonic well-being: Feeling of happiness, satisfaction and interest in life, also called emotional well-being, Evaluations of life in general and Eudemonic well-being: Realization of one’s own potential, Psychological well-being. Optimal lifestyle development, Optimal functioning and self-actualisation. Both refer to positive mental health: Self-acceptance, Purpose in life, Autonomy, Positive relationships with others, Environmental mastery (ability to master your environment according to your needs), Personal growth, strive to become a better person and to realize one’s potential. Social well-being: Person is functioning optimally in society, Social coherence: being able to make meaning of what is happening in society, Social acceptance: a positive attribute towards others while acknowledging their difficulties, Social actualisation: the belief that the community has potential and can evolve positively, Social contribution: feeling that one’s activities contribute to and are valued by society (serving to others), Social integration: a sense of belonging to a community.

Self-esteem or self-belief is crucial for self-actualisation and unleashed potential. You need a healthy sense of trust and faith in yourself and your abilities to make use of your resources and manifest your goals and dreams. I you constantly depend on others for self-worth and acknowledgement nothing will ever be enough. Coaching helps you to create self-belief by challenging you to think further and grow out of your past experiences. The connection to others is only important in the sense of getting support and guidance. Only then can connections really be nurturing.

Ps: I believe in potential. I believe we all have what it takes, we just have to start. So, if you’ve ever thought I don’t have time for this... Now is the time to start doing it.

I truly believe that the foundation of a life well lived is to live in balance and happiness.

I love the thought of being able to make someone’s life better. I want to change people’s lives. I want to make them happy and bring joy and positivity into their lives, making them smile and inspire them to create the life they are imagining for themselves. There is so much more out there than what you can see and touch right in front of you. I want to show you that there is so much love and beauty in ever thing. In every moment. My motivation, the why of this blog and coaching is to make the world a happier and healthier place by bringing more joy and calm into people’s lives so we can together take care of each other and this planet. There is so much more that counts in life than money, work or a huge number of friends. Life should be fun. Life should be about loving yourself and enjoying every moment of every second no matter the circumstances. Life is there to be lived!

That is why I help people be part of an adventure, build a life based on dreams, inspired by growth and lived with passion, a life full of happiness – from within and without.

And this is an invitation for you to join this tribe of highly ambitious, freedom seeking females and learn to master your mind, nature your spirit and live life beyond limitations.
