My name is Miriam van Keulen. I am Dutch by birth and Australian by choice. After much travel, I feel I have come home in Canberra. I live near the beautiful Pinnacle Nature Reserve (see picture) together with my awesome husband.
I have graduated in HR Management – a nationally accredited Diploma – in April 2017. I combine my Life Coaching skills with HR and specialise in Performance Management. I can lead those difficult conversations with employees who are under performing. I explore ways for improvement and achieve each person’s best possible life and work outcome.
If you want to have me on board, please contact me. My creativity and my ability to quickly understand and support people from all walks of life, combined with my passion for learning and being of service, may make me a great addition to your HR team.
Here’s some information about my history:
‘Miriam was awarded a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, The Netherlands in 1992. Whilst working solo in her studio as a painter, Miriam had various jobs on the side in which supporting other people always played a central role. She built a wealth of work experience in the artistic field, in education and healthcare.
In 1998 Miriam began the move from Fine Arts to Life Coaching with the commencement of studies in Art Therapy.
It was a natural step for Miriam to apply for the Dutch Academy for Counselling and Coaching. She received the Diploma Academic Counsellor and Coach in 2008 and the Diploma Specialist Counsellor and Coach in 2010. Miriam completed Coach Level 1 of The Sedona Method® in 2009 and Coach Level 2 of The Sedona Method® in 2011.
