Me, philosophy and ethics in coaching.
I believe that:
People already have all the resources they need
There is no such thing as failure, only feedback
People always make the best choice available to them at the time.
Behind every behavior is a positive intention
Every behavior is useful in some context
Choice is better than no choice
We are all responsible for creating our own experience
What defines my coaching?
Authenticity, values, mission/purpose are the words that defines my coaching. Because I value individuation, I work differently with every person.
I am fascinated by people; in transitions, I value development and learning, being connected, wisdom and freedom of choice.
How to become more conscious of your motives; that what 'moves' you? What is underneath your 'waterline'?
I have been working as a coach since 2005 in The Netherlands and in the USA. Before that I worked as a HR advisor and HR manager in a technical and metal company.
My study background (BA and MS) is around 'mens en arbeid'; people and work.
I am trained as a Professional Coach in the Netherlands at the School voor Coaching in Leiden.
In the USA at the Coach Academy International in Dallas where I am grateful to be trained by two of the best coaches in the USA!
I am certified as a Global Career Development Facilitator by the National Career Development Association in Denver, Colorado in the USA.
I stimulate others to a value-based life, with awareness and using their talents.
My talents are deep listening (for what is not said), I am a keen observer for other people's strengths, styles and motivation, I am empathetically, I am active and I relate easily to people. I love new ideas (ideation) and love for people to discover and solve their problems (restorative).
For my complete resume email or text me.
As a coach, I have no agenda except to help my clients get what they want.
While there will be times that I suggest new ideas from my intuition, knowledge and experience, I “partner” with you to help implement a plan that we create together.
Coaches do not see anything as a problem, only as an opportunity.
The past is only the focus of coaching as a learning/growing tool. I do not start in the past, nor stay there, but release the energy the past has on you so you can move forward with confidence.
The coaching relationship helps you not only manage, but thrive in the face of change.
Unlike chatting with your friends, coaches are objective and nonjudgemental, and we never tell you what you 'should do', think or be.
Ethics and confidentiality
I follow the codes of Ethics standardized by the ICF; the International Coach federation.
I work with the highest confidentiality and privacy
I will work without any conflict of interest
I will follow up on the agreement signed by coach and client.
