Join me at the second annual Rise and Lead Summit on 19 and 20 September 2019 @ the NH Hotel – WTC, The Hague!

“Barbara is an amazing listener- her coaching style empowered me to be more conscious in tough work situations. Specifically, to be able to stay present and make intention-based decisions. She also helped me bring more mindfulness-based brainstorming techniques to my team, which have increased creativity and productivity.”

Breana, Fortune 500 Executive

Feel empowered & focused

When you feel empowered and focused, it is easier to make big life decisions. Are you looking to get clear and focused on the next steps? Do you want more harmony between the different parts of your life? Then you have come to the right place.

My clients often come to me feeling overwhelmed around making impactful decisions in their lives. People who are looking to feel clear and empowered about where to head next. My mentoring and coaching can help you work towards feeling calm and ready to move forward with more focus.

Become clear about your life

As a coach and mentor, I can support you to find your calm and get clear around your situation, I can help you get ‘unstuck’ and consciously choose the next direction of your life.

My approach is open and intuitive. We can work face-to-face at my office, or we can walk & talk. Because of the international nature of my work, my coach sessions are usually online. Depending on the time of year, we can meet face-to-face in either San Francisco or The Netherlands.

Barbara gave the WBII a presentation on managing change which was both highly concise and professional, yet also warm and humorous with visuals and stories which conveyed her message perfectly. She left us with a new awareness and a desire to learnmore. I thoroughly recommend her.

Systemic Work | Inner Negotiation Workshop | MMS Coach Training

Working with a group can be a powerful experience.The dynamics are different to coaching in the sense that there is more time to process new awareness and the energy of the group plays a part in the process. Multiple days and people give room to deeper experiential work.

How can I help you?

My year career started in Corporate Communications and later moved into Health Care Management. During these years I could always be found in personal development or organizational training hub, either learning about management development or learning about different ancient wisdom traditions, meditation, systemic work and compassion.

Today, I work as a personal coach and workshop leader and support professionals who are looking for to feel empowered and develop more personal leadership; professionals who are looking to find more harmony in the different parts of their lives.

Barbara has this innate intuition that gives her this edge in coaching. She has her way of asking the right questions which generate all these answers within you that didn’t find their way out earlier. It’s been a pleasure working with Barbara, always leaving lighter and ready to take on new challenges
