Career coach - My Future Works
Meer dan 17 jaar heb ik me als bio-ingenieur met hart en ziel ingezet voor milieu & klimaat. Een burn-out heeft me echter doen ervaren dat die job me geen energie (meer) gaf en in mijn zoektocht naar wie ik dan ben en wat mij wél energie geeft, ben ik op een heel ander pad gekomen: dat van stress- en loopbaancoach.
Ik stel vast dat veel mensen de antwoorden op vragen als 'wie ben ik?' en 'wat wil ik?' buiten zichzelf gaan zoeken. Jij bent echter de enige die het juiste antwoord kent voor al jouw vragen. Ik begeleid je graag om die antwoorden in jezelf te vinden door je bewust te laten worden van jouw wérkelijke talenten en van de patronen die jou - vaak onbewust - sturen. Zodat je opnieuw bewust wordt van jouw potentieel en van de manier waarop je dat in de wereld kan neerzetten.
Talenten: groeimotor, zinzoeker, vertrouweling, ontrafelaar, buikdenker, sterkte-architect (cfr. Talententoolbox L. Dewulf en P. Beschuyt)

Who do I want to be as a coach? I expect the best of the future and I trust in it to make it happen. That is why I want to be wise. I want to gain this wisdom by being mindful of the good things that happen to me, by expressing gratitude, by taking care of others, by presenting people with opportunity , by being truthful, by living an authentic and honest life, by loving, by always keeping an eye open for beauty.
My talents: engaged listener, mood reader, solid rock, growth engine, beliefs actor. (cfr. Talententoolbox L. Dewulf en P. Beschuyt).

Career coach and Keuzekompas ® coach - My Future Works
For over 17 years I have set my mind to help (young) adults with tilting moments in their lives. First as a caregiver, now as a career coach and Keuzekompascoach®. The driving force for me is that every (young)adult has the right to at least once during their interesting life, get into contact with their own strengths, values, talents and drives, in order to gain self-knowledge to make the best decisions for growth.
My talents: growth nurturer, intuitive thinker, ignition key, fair play promotor and selective perfectionist (cfr. Talententoolbox L. Dewulf en P. Beschuyt).
