What is it I really want? What am I good at? Why does that one colleague bother me so much? How come I didn’t get promoted? How do I interact with my Dutch boss and colleagues? These are situations in life which we encounter over and over again.

Does that sound impossible? Only a deep dive and taking yourself seriously allows that possibility to reveal itself. Answering different questions and completing a talent test – you will discover what drives you. A wish to change becomes tangible when it gets grounded. Create time to find out what your true ambition is, what it is you want to achieve.

Using your talents as a starting point and more insight in the Dutch approach, combined with systemic coaching techniques you will gain a different perspective on your professional life. Taking time and space for contemplation, you will discover a new approach.

Why am I still angry at that person? What causes the nagging feeling I cannot shake off? I am definitely not going to forgive that person!

Forgiving quickly feels as a loaded statement. We have been taught that forgiveness is something you may be given or receive after injustice. That apologies of the ‘perpetrator’ are a necessity. That forgiveness is something you ‘grant’ someone. It is such a pity that these ideas remain so prominent. Forgiving is one of the most precious and liberating gifts we can give ourselves.

The method of forgiveness I use is based on the work of Willem Glaudemans and A Course in Miracles. You are at the heart of all this. Forgiving starts with you and what it is you would have wanted. There is no need for the presence of the other person in this process. Just you. Free yourself of spite and feelings that enclose you. Clear up your past and make room for your future Life.
