I started out as a secondary school English teacher in The Netherlands. It was great first, but then I started feeling unchallenged, bored and pretty unhappy. I decided to follow my dream: move to Florence to teach English to Italians. When I felt ready for another challenge, I entered the blogging world and discovered the joy of writing. I missed working with people though and this provided me with the - now looking back - immensely valuable moment to consider what I really, really wanted to do in life: work with, help and inspire people. I followed a course to become an ACT-professional in Holland and then proceeded my studies in Rome. I studied with Giovanna Giuffredi of Life Coach Italy and got my International Coach Federation certificate. I'm an ACTP Life Coach and I combine coaching, with ACT and mindfulness in order to help my clients find their values, live their dreams and discover their mission in life. I've found mine, let's find yours!
