More About Me

About Me

I have always been interested in how and why people change or not change. When i first discovered Motivational Interviewing, I felt that the spirit of MI fitted with my own attitude. Using the skills of MI, I saw that my clients changed their behaviour more easily and they became more confident. It also gave me more satisfaction and trust in other's possibilities.
These results made me want to learn more about MI, so i did the TNT in Barcelona in 2009.

I love sharing the good things in life, so i decided to become an MI trainer. I have giving trainings to people from various backgrounds and professions. People in the criminal justice setting, health care professionals, vicars, voluntary workers and high school teachers.
I also have been coaching people in life style changes in the corporate world. During the coaching i focussed on quitting smoking, losing weight and having a more active life.
During the coaching i have also been working with the organization as a whole. I have been working with the management to create a good environment to hold on the new insights and habits.

Trainer Statement

I believe that when we truly want to meet the other, there is an opportunity to learn from eachother and to develop the MI spirit and to learn the skills. Using people's skills and everyday practice in my trainings makes me develop myself as well. Seeing people growing during the training gives a lot of satisfaction.
