I have a strong analytic, associative mind in balance with sensitivity and intuition. Used with reconnecting communication this ensures the right dose of empathy and care for building constructive relations. If people are connected with their soul, they can fulfil themselves on the workfloor, this way getting access to greater sources of creativity and realisation. Growing in synergie, people and company, to the next level by working in their potential and eliminating restricting patterns. Besides the mindset and structure, getting sensitivity and intuition nested in organisations is a goal towards which I like to strive and I am able to sense organisation's structures, gaps and bottlenecks. Coaching sensitive people and HSPs to create themselves in essence and realise their potential. Also coaching people with fear to fail, with perfectionism and with burn-out.


Current Experience

  • CoachIng & TrainIng
    Since January 2013
    Empowerment by harmonization of body, mind, sensitivity by re-strengthing the role of feeling and intuition. Making room for sensitivity within one persoon, a group, a structure, a company. This way, enhancing communication and connection within persons, groups, companies. Many HSP develop fear to fail, perfectionism and burn-out. Training and coaching will help them keeping the balance so they can valorise it to a great asset in regulated and goal oriented structures. As an aid to the coaching proces, I also use NeurOptimal neurofeedback which can be seen as yoga for the mind. NeurOptimal innovative hightech system with scientifically advanced software will provide feedback to the brains which neural paths are actually being used, while maybe ready to leave. Thanks to the brain's plasticity new neural bonds can be created giving birth to new neural paths. As our central nervous system is embedded in our whole human being, these new created paths will be reflected in new behaviour, other ways of thinking, more emotional balance, different sensation of energy. Throughout the coaching, multiple tools which can help the proces are being explored in a creative way, and methods are being combined and applied depending from the input of coachee or the team.

    Since April 2007
    Senior Clinical Research Professional: Project Manager lead CRA, senior CRA, Site Optimisation & Patient Recruitment specialist Coach & Trainer in Clinical Research With a Master of Industrial science and a Pedagogic Degree, I started my career at Procter & Gamble, working as a Medical Delguee.

My job experience ranges from Clinical Project Manager to Trainer in Clinical Research as well as Patient Recruitment Specialist, Senior CRA, Lead CRA in CROs, pharmaceutical companies and medical device companies. The clinical trials I managed and monitored were national and international phase I to IV studies as well as observational studies in a wide range of therapeutic areas. Next to science and research, education is a pillar in my professional activities. Since 2011, I provide training and coaching in the field of clinical research. Both professional education and personal development are important: I coach people with fear to fail and perfectionism as prevention of burn-out and I train highly sensitive persons to valorise their talents.
