Individual counseling and life coaching

Ready to step into your power and write your own story?

When you decide to start a 1to1 counseling or life coaching process, you effectively decide to take your life into your own hands. You will not any longer follow what has been prescribed to you by your circumstances but will rather take control and responsibility. With deciding to invest your time and money into a counseling process, you decide to actively pursue the life that you want to be living. To not only dream, but also start taking the steps. To own your potential and keep going, as long as it takes to reach your goals. To finally believe that everything is possible as long as you keep working for it. To start owning your story.


Common topics in counseling and life coaching

Generally speaking, in 1to1 counseling and life coaching, we work with challenges that are mostly related to your personal life and relationships. Common topics include:

  • Relationship- and family challenges

  • Loneliness, the feeling of isolation

  • LGBTQ+ challenges

  • Academic pressures and challenges

  • Major life transitions, midlife crisis

  • Dealing with conflicts (internal, interpersonal, intercultural, etc.)

  • Stress and anxiety (future, finance, climate, politics, etc.)

  • Feeling stuck or powerless, lack of self-esteem and self-confidence

  • Self-actualization

  • Purpose, future- and vision planning

  • Decision making

  • Spirituality

  • Expat challenges, etc.


Benefits of counseling

If you’re feeling stuck, or are going through a difficult phase, or you simply want to grow and improve an aspect of your life in order to be able to live life to the fullest, counseling and coaching can be beneficial to you.

During your process, you will be able to

  • Relook at your challenge from new perspectives, enabling you to start finding effective solutions

  • Establish goals and create corresponding plans

  • Discover the competencies and resources that are already available to you, which will help you get closer and closer to your goals

  • Discover the real barriers to your growth and start overcoming them

  • Feel heard, understood, accepted and encouraged

  • Start feeling more empowered, confident and optimistic

  • Start implementing all of this into your life and noticing positive changes!


My approach

I’m a counselor as well as a coach, and I combine the best of both disciplines to facilitate your process: I am future-and goal-focused, with the objective of helping you find your solutions as fast and as efficiently as possible. At the same time, when I feel it serves your purpose to go into a topic a bit deeper, then I recommend the use of methods that enable you to do so. And everything I do, I do it within a frame of genuine care and empathy, with understanding and respect for your process. You can read more about my framework and approach here.


I strongly believe that every crisis is, at the core of it, also an opportunity to grow and that you have the potential to, with proper facilitation, efficiently turn your situation around and start experiencing positive change. I also believe that you already have all the resources needed to find your solutions. Discovering and activating those resources is an important part of the process – as is working out potential solutions and testing them, implementing them in real life.

Depending on your topic, sometimes 2-3 sessions are already helpful, and sometimes a longer process is more recommended. Based on your objectives, needs and possibilities, we can discuss what would be the best approach for you.

Take that first step today.
