What were the times that you felt most happy? What were you doing?
What prospect makes you get out of bed with energy and zest?
What activities give you a feeling of purpose, connectedness or joy?
What was your initial attraction to OT?
We as OTs seem to be driven by a natural desire to help others, to maximise their participation, connectedness & purpose in life. We help people to recover, discover, develop and thrive. But what about ourselves…?

Somehow, many of us get stranded or lost along our career path. Our vision, passions, feeling of purpose can be squeezed and pushed into a small corner of our hearts. Maybe you recognise some of the triggers that can keep us from thriving in our work: increased work pressure, lack of progression, a poor work-life balance, confusion about our career path, illness, job insecurity or loss, changes in yourself or your environment, conflicts at work, private practice & entrepreneurial challenges, feeling inadequate and not up for the job…..

Being coached by an open-minded, open-hearted OT and qualified coach who has worked in different settings, organisations and countries might help you to shine a light into that corner of your heart, to figure out what really matters to you and how you can move towards a more fulfilling personal and professional life.
You don’t need to tolerate a life that is not a true expression of YOU; your passions, your values, your strengths, your purpose here on earth! I can help you to explore what it is you need to thrive and find meaning in life.

‘What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make’.

I am a Senior OT, hold an MA in Adult Learning and Development and am an accredited coach with the European Mentoring and Coaching Council.

I’m Dutch, I live & work in Ireland and can be reached online from anywhere in the world for a ‘chemistry meeting’ to find out if we both feel we can work in a powerful partnership to make things happen for you! In as little as 4 sessions there is the potential to achieve a lot!
You can find out more about my background on LinkedIn.
