The first fifteen years of my professional life I worked as an artist, making paintings and drawings. I then moved on to coaching and counselling. Painting is such a solitary business – I wanted to use my people skills! From 2007 I’ve worked as a Life Coach, first in the Netherlands, and from 2010, in Australia. I’m an Accredited Professional Coach with ANZI Coaching. I have graduated in HR Management – a nationally accredited Diploma – in April 2017. I’m a Professional Member of AHRI. I now combine my Coaching skills with HR and specialise in Performance Consultancy, and Life, Leadership and Performance Coaching. Together we explore ways for improvement, and achieve each person’s best possible life and work outcome. I'm an independent author, too. I've published a self-help book called The Master's Compass - A journey beyond thoughts and feelings into the heart of power, wisdom and love. It is a guide to a fulfilled life and career. I currently work on more titles such as The Smell of Sunshine - Stories about a new life in Australia, and My Beautiful Heart - About human love in divine awareness.
