I would be happy to help you with these kinds of issues.
We will explore what is causing your sense of stagnation. We will investigate, whereby I will guide you to find answers so you will be able to take control again. Curiosity is the key here. Together, we will look at exactly what is troubling you, in order to empower you to make the most of your life. We will be non-judgmental and action-oriented.
Everything is welcome!
We will create an optimal environment for you to explore, to experience and to talk freely. In order to find out what’s at the heart of your desire for change. I will listen to you and ask you questions in order to make what’s going on for you as clear and as specific as possible. I will mirror and help you reflect. I will guide you, so that you can discover what wants to be seen. Together, we will ensure that you get the clarity and insight you are longing for. It’s truly a cooperation. And I will adjust my guidance exactly to fit your specific needs.
“Everything starts with desire”
is my conviction
In other words: find out what makes you tick, what immediately energises you when you think about it. For only when you feel that, do you really know which direction you wish to take. And will you be able to give yourself permission to fully pursue it. I am happy to help you find your way.
I know how it feels to be stuck, to be governed by day-to-day life, and to somehow be aware that things have to change. I also understand how hard it is to tackle this on your own. To adjust your course, to change direction, to transform your life, that’s not easy. Certainly not having to do that all by yourself. In my experience, it is very empowering to be supported, so that thesw changes, be they small or large, suddenly become achievable.

What clients say about Marjolein
Wendy (35), Netherlands
"I would describe Marjolein as: present, aware, honest, patient, insightful. I enjoyed the sessions. There was a really welcoming vibe. I always felt that I could talk about what was presently bothering me, but we were also able to pin it back to where it came from.
Most valuable to me was when she mirrored me and allowed me to see my thoughts through her. That really opened my eyes to the things I always say but was unaware of. So I gained a lot of awareness throughout our sessions. And was able to make changes in my life accordingly.
Combining online sessions with in-person sessions worked really well for me. This option allowed me to fit it into my busy schedule, since I live a bit far from her.
I want to especially thank Marjolein for thinking of my background, being a black woman from an African country. Together we discussed where I come from and what society raised me. This was really great because she was able to understand where my trauma stems from. So we took that knowledge and incorporated it into our sessions."
Willemijn (36), Netherlands
"Marjolein has a very welcoming personality that provides a very safe space. Next to that she provided very helpful feedback and exercises. I really loved the sessions together!
She connects the dots very easily: statements that I make to feelings I expressed and vice versa. She is able to very clearly extract the core of what I’m trying to explain. Marjolein keeps the story line of each session clear and helps me not to divert too much from the subject that we are discussing. That helps a lot with focus and clarification on my part as well. I gained many insights during our sessions.
What I enjoyed is that we set goals together on what (and not) to talk about during the session. Also valuable was starting each session with a summary of what we had talked about previously. This kept us on track, and led to results."
Susan (59), United Kingdom
“Marjolein is respectful, collaborative, calming and supportive. She’s very good at being able to guide me into a safe space, to move out of my cognitive into a more feeling, emotional body place. I find her voice pace and intonation very soothing. And Marjolein’s style of communication during the session is absolutely right, setting the tone – calm, measured without being overly ‘therapist’! We worked online, and it may take some time to communicatie emotions over Zoom, but the screen did not seem like a barrier.
I feel heard by Marjolein. And also sometimes challenged without any defensive response – which would usually be an unconscious reaction from me. I experienced dropping into a trusting place quite quickly. The sessions are very useful, enjoyable and satisfying. I have very much benefitted from working with her and I would definitely recommend her coaching to others as she has a natural skill.”
Rob (58), The Netherlands
"I experienced Marjolein as a coach who really observed me, saw my whole being and was able to work with this. I felt completely seen and heard. She very pleasantly took charge during the sessions and made sure that my story that was in my head could be narrated with my body and my heart. That was especially beneficial at times when my emotions were running high and I was less able to think clearly.
Marjolein invited me to use the entire coaching room and to put my body in motion. I found that to be very nice because my body knows what is going on much more quickly than my mind does. I felt her engagement with my story. I noticed how her questions gave me increasingly deeper insight into what was going on within me. She uses different methods to achieve this. For me, visualising my feelings helped a lot. It allowed me to make better contact with them. Not only during the sessions, but also afterwards. I could look at them and this helped me enormously to achieve significant progress regarding my issue."
Lena (57), Denmark
"I appreciate Marjolein’s calm approach, it feels very good and safe. She is great at noticing and observing what is important to me, and the fact that she reflects back along the way makes me feel both seen and heard.
The chemistry between us is really good. There’s a relaxed atmosphere and it’s wonderfully liberating to be able to laugh along the way. Marjolein is so adept at summarizing and keeping the conversation on track. That’s a great balance. Also, her ability to visualize is a great help to me as it forms images that can help me maintain important insights. I feel helped well throughout our sessions."
Bob (36), The Netherlands
"Marjolein created space and safety during our sessions. During our conversations, I was given the opportunity to look for answers and solutions that I felt were close to me, but which I would not have been able to reach without Marjolein's attentive feedback.
In addition, I received excellent and helpful exercises to not only engage cognitively, but also to place more emphasis on the physical aspects."
Caja (48), The Netherlands
“Marjolein is very observant. She uses all her senses, notices changes in my body language and my speech and provides feedback or intervenes when necessary, to make me more aware of myself. I feel safe showing my feelings, since she is able to help me prevent getting overwhelmed. She always gives me time to process what’s happening. And she helps me to stay connected to my body instead of getting lost in my head.
I’m learning how to slow down, give space to my emotions, and to process everything that comes up in a grounded way. I like the suggestions and tools Marjolein provides for me to practice and to continue my thought process in between sessions. That’s very valuable and helpful. The online format works surprisingly well.
Overall, Marjolein communicates clearly, gives structure to our conversations, is empathetic, professional and makes me feel very much at ease. I feel safe in the ‘coaching hands’ of Marjolein. I feel that everything that will or will not happen is welcome.”
