what is coaching & for who?

Coaching is all about creating awareness around who you are, what you want and how to take steps towards living the life you want to lead. Coaching empowers choice and leads to change. In the safe space of our one-on-one conversations, I will challenge you by asking questions about all aspects of your life and encourage you to experiment and think out of the box. Together, we work towards achieving your desired goals 

If you are ready for more focus on your personal development, make a sustainable change in your life and/or want to commit to making your dream a reality, take action towards it, then coaching may be beneficial for you. We will focus on your goals and on how you progress towards them.  

what can i expect? 

My coachees often report back to me that my coaching helped them drop into their hearts’ desire and that calming and organizing their mind together, helped them get clear about what’s next. Helped them find balance and feel empowered & confident to take the actions needed to get the results they are looking for.  As an International, ICF credentialed coach, I am trained to create positive change and help you achieve extraordinary results.

I had the great opportunity of being coached by Barbara.

Barbara is intelligent, doesn’t get distracted and is enjoyable to talk to. I highly recommend her.

Barbara is my guide within this maze of paths. Not in a way that she tells me what to do or where to go. No, she instead let me believe in my own ability to choose. During a session it is like she dives into my mind, understanding and feeling my situation and making me see strengths I simply never saw before or I forgot about. She let me look at the bigger picture instead of the ‘negative detail’ that I tend to focus on.

What Coachees say

Barbara’s coaching help was crucial in my journey to figure out the next step in my career. She helped analyze and highlight my thoughts, which were all over the place when I first saw her. By asking great questions and pointing out things that stood out to her in what I said, she helped me see things clearly again, thus paving the way for a coherent path forward. Barbara looks at the entire human being (both things you say and things you don’t say) and takes it all in to be a good coach. She is a delight to work with. If I ever get stuck in a situation where I could use a coach, I would not hesitate for a second to call Barbara again.

Floor Koudijs, executive director at Joint Venture Silicon Valley  

When I was hitting a crossroad in my life, I had the pleasure to take part in a walking coaching session guided by Barbara. She has an intuitive approach, with the amazing ability to connect and tune-in to my unspoken thoughts and feelings. Barbara is highly focused and very compassionate. I was surprised by the power of her systemic coaching, that allowed me to be vulnerable, to open up and thereby revealed new eye opening insights. She didn’t provide me with solutions for my questions, she didn’t tell me what to do. Instead, she helped me find my own answers and solutions from within myself. Barbara has a talent to make underlying thoughts and feelings visible, which catalyzed my thought process and allowed me to find my answers from within myself. 

 

Joke van Bemmel

Communication Specialist

During my sessions with Barbara, I began to untangle the emotions from the reality of what I was experiencing 

Barbara’s coaching methods really helped open me up to the potential things that I might like to pursue and she also, through mirroring my words helped me see that I could find other ways of expressing myself. After our sessions, I felt I could engage more honestly with my emotions and problem solve more creativity.  

I am so grateful for the sessions and so excited to have made such great headway; no longer feeling that old sense of stuckness.
