Your working life has a major influence on your happiness in life. Work provides income, but also identity and meaning. To know what you really want, it is necessary to know your true nature or identity. What do you stand for? What is really important to you? Conversely, knowing what you want, also helps to have a clearer picture about ‘who am I?’. When you know yourself, you can make choices that really suit you.
Research into who you are, what you need in work, what inspires you and what gives you ‘meaning’ in work, makes it clear which path you should look for or create. That requires research, sometimes also of impeding forces or patterns in yourself, and ‘looking in the mirror’.
Thinking, feeling and acting make your identity visible. In the right circumstances. However, under the influence of all kinds of events and thoughts about it, these three can sometimes not be congruent with each other.
Head, heart and hands. In my coaching sessions I use all three. I therefore combine cognitive coaching techniques with doing (acting) & experiencing. By stimulating your intuition. I encourage you to be really open and honest with yourself. And to your environment. To ensure that thinking, feeling and acting are aligned again.
We then translate your insights into practical tools, into small or sometimes major adjustments in your life, directed by you. But we mainly translate your insights into more satisfaction, happiness and the feeling that you can live your fullest potential! Both professionally and privately. Because, of course, these two go hand in hand.

Life coaching focuses on three core questions: Who am I? What do I want? and What can I do?
To find answers to this, it is important to clarify and become aware of your talents, wishes and motivations. But also awareness of your ‘shadow sides’; your limiting thoughts or patterns. The same as with career coaching, applies to life coaching: if you know yourself, you can make choices that really suit you.
Self-knowledge is the basis for happiness. And self-observation is the beginning of self-compassion: being mild and less critical towards yourself. By self-observation I mean: learning to look at yourself from a distance, to observe what you think, feel and how you act. This is an important part of my coaching. By learning to look at yourself honestly and without judgment, you can recognize habits and patterns in yourself. And let go of what no longer suits you. This creates more space for relaxation and balance. For new insights and possibilities. What you can immediately get started with.
This way you get clarity again about who you are. What you truly want. And what you stand for.
“Janneke is a positive, energetic and enthusiastic coach. She works in a structured way and has a well thought-out coaching plan, which she also communicates well during the session. She is genuinely interested and makes connections between the sessions, which helps to form a sharper more complete picture of what I’m working on. I felt comfortable during the sessions, which makes it easier for me to tell things. She has clearly stated a number of things that were not clear to me, which I can really move on with. So also goal-oriented/tangible, I think that’s important too.”
“Janneke has a very nice way of coaching. The exercises give you insight into your patterns and ways of thinking in a completely different way. I also really enjoyed doing the coaching (sometimes forced by Corona) outside. We have come together a number of times in the forest and have worked with / around products from nature. Walking has a positive effect on coaching.”
“Janneke is a really nice coach. She is very patient and free of judgment and thinks along well about the coaching question, the themes in which you want to develop yourself.”
“You really feel understood. She works with very nice exercises. The most important thing for me is that I have started to look at my own thought patterns in a much nicer way. In terms of friendships, love and career. I have learned to recognize my thoughts and, above all, to let them be”
