Born in 1959, working as an anesthesiologist, and as trainer and coach of (future) medical doctors and MMS coach since spring 2014.
As a medical student I directed a musical. My greatest joy came from helping the actors (who were peer students) to find their inner strength and realise their maximum potential on stage.
Many years later, working as a pain doctor, I discovered that the most satisfying part of my work was not so much the medical part, but to accompany the patients on their intimate and personal journey to cope with their pain. I realized than (remembering the musical) that I would really enjoy to accompany healthy people on their journey to cope with life and the choices life brings.
It took me another twenty years of wandering to actually full this and make it a part of my work. The MMS coach training was the cherry on the cake of my personal journey. In my own coach process during the training I experienced the beneficence that the careful attention given by an MMS coach brings and how that attention helped me to find and solve obstacles and to come into action.
My vision and mission
Everybody arrives at crossing points in their life wondering: am I on the right path? These crossing points are connected to life issues such as relationships, work, family, friendships. You can be confused, you don’t know any more what it is that you really want, which road to take? At such a crossing point I can help you:
- to unravel, provide insight in and sort out the ‘confusion’ in your head
- to focus your attention on what really matters to you and to find out what you really want with your head and your heart
- to come into action and take concrete steps to go there where you really want to be.
I believe and I know that you yourself have the answers and the possibilities. I would be happy and honoured to accompany you on your journey.
