Process Psychology, Narrative, Art, Biographical Work, Music, Movement, NLP, Mindfulness, Theme & Scheme, TouchPro, RET, TA, Motherpeace, Human Development are some of the elements which shape my process facilitation,
be it in coaching, project management or professional supervision.
Over the course of my working life as manager, coordinator, gardener, instigator, motivator, strategist, tutor & trainer, mediator, caterer & cook, facilitator, director, certified life-and-business coach and wellness consultant together with continuing education and ongoing personal & professional development, I have become a specialist in facilitating solutions for anxiety and stress in life, career and business. I also provide viable options for organisations.
It is possible to find the balance of living well and working well. Many organisations and people have to learn how to do this. I can guide you in the transition to another focus, ensuring better results and a more relaxed and happier life.
My style is inclusive and centres on what you as a person, as a pair, group, business or organisation need. After an initial chat to decide how and if we can work together, my aim is to assist you to clearly define your questions and your goals so you can find your answers and change your hurdles into stepping stones to a successful outcome.

I feel inspired by the account of Thomas Graboys' life.
His book: 'Life in the Balance' A physician's Memoir of Life, Love
and Loss with Parkinson's Disease and Dementia. This book
encourages me to live and develop my dream: providing respite and opportunity for you to find your inner space with your own answers.
In general I feel energized meeting people, younger, older and the
very young and witness their unique way of living and thinking.
Maria Montessori and Rudoph Steiner have been my guiding
lights in learning and education. Their complimentary philosophies
enhance all the work I do.
I admire Elisabeth Kubler Ross for her commitment to self
development and for her pioneering in the support of humanity
in the last phase of our lives.
The Homo Ludens ( 'man' who plays ) of Leonard Huizinga
inspired me for my first thesis (psychology) and has always
played a part in my life.
Tim Galwey, the founder of coaching as we know it today, has
provided me with many an insight in the art of professional coaching. I feel hugely inspired by the ultimate simplicity of 'the Inner Game'.
I first learnt about this in 1986 and am forever grateful to Bryce
who taught me.
Deep Field Relaxation deepened my understanding of the healing process. Learning from a Kiwi while in Europe made this extra special. With many thanks to Cliff.
And last but not least the inspiration that comes from sound or the
absence of it, the vibrations, music, the all permeating quality of it.
Silence, Quiet, Stillness...
In the stilte
In the stilte kiemt het leven
In the stilte zwelt de vrucht
Wordt het kleurenkleed geweven van de zomeravondlucht
In de stilte
O als wij maar konden wachten
Samen zwijgen lang en stil
Zal 't Heelal aan ons ontvouwen de geheimen van Haar Wil
In the stilte
In silence life enfolds; the fruit grows and the colourful mantle
of the summer evening sky is woven
In silence, oh if only we could wait; wait together long and still;
then the Universe will unfold the secrets of Her will.
