Are you tired of being tired, feeling unfulfilled, depressed and honestly anything but yourself? Have you exhausted the “do more, try harder and just ignore the ugly stuff mentality” to only feel even more depleted?
In a time where toxic-productivity, toxic-positivity and easier accessibility to everything and everyone is a real thing, I believe that now more than ever it is so important to find your way back to your true self. This so you can create and live a more embodied life and live your life based on your own core values.
Your whole life you have been a hard worker, going from goal to goal. Reaching and achieving higher and higher. Working hard is not strange to you. However, for quite some time now you have been feeling exhausted, questioning if all the hard work of your healing and mental health journey was worth it. You feel stuck and rather lost. “Is this really how it is supposed to be?”…you ask yourself. You start doubting yourself and wonder if you are suffering from what they call ‘expectation hangover’. Where you used to hide behind your hard work and achievements, you now no longer can ignore the disconnect. After years of operating in survival mode, what you did so masterfully, you managed to create a good life. But is it your life?
” I have tried so much already, what now Kaley?”
I for one can tell you, after over 20 years of experience in and out of all sorts of counseling, treatments, psychotherapy and training, that you have been missing out on crucial knowledge. After all those years of mainly focussing on the mental aspect of myself, a whole world opened up for me when I learned about what it means to live a more embodied life. By just focussing on 1 aspect of yourself, the mental aspect. You have been neglecting parts of you that equally need attention when it is true transformation that you want. When you really want to stop feeling exhausted, depressed, unfulfilled and disconnected from yourself, you also need to focus on your spiritual, emotional, energetic and physical self. Your 5 layers of being. And this is why I believe that once you approach yourself, your life and your current challenges in a more embodied way, you will step out of survival and transform into a Thriver.
And live a life where you fully get to choose how to design it based on your values and desires and not your fears or old patterns. Or habits and beliefs that no longer serve you. All while focussing on all 5 layers of your being.
What’s next you ask? “You have come to the right place!”
I will guide you into being more, so you can do and have more of what you truly want. Move away from survival mode and get into creating and living a life of more ease, fulfillment, joy and alignment with your personal core values. And fully showing up unapologetically as your true self.
When it comes to being coached I sincerely believe it is all about you, what you need. At the end of the day it is your life that we are seeking to deepen and transform by uncovering and getting rid of all the layers that no longer serve you. On all aspects that make up you, your 5 layers of being. Your spiritual, mental, emotional, energetic and physical self.
I am here to facilitate that process and guide you to all that is already within you.
In life, falling into patterns and habits that on the surface look like they are good, may not actually be serving you on the long haul. It can lead to waking up to a life that is good, but is it also good for you?
It is time to live a more embodied life and fully reconnect with yourself!
Knowing what makes you tick in the form of identifying your core values is one of the most powerful ways to start any transformational journey. These core values serve as your guideline to keep you aligned to what is true to you and your desires. And for you core values too, taking an embodied approach from all 5 layers for your being takes centre point.
During my training at The Transformational Embodiment Institute I was taught a fun and very effective values elicitation process. When you decide to work with me, we will go through this process together and I will guide you from start to finish.
However if you want to get started now, I provided this very powerful process as a free gift that you can access and start right now!
Work with me
As your Thrive Coach, creating a safe space that works for you and supports your transformation is what I am here for and what is at the centre of us working together.
That being said, nothing works unless you do. Your success and transformation is a combination of finding what works for you, connecting with the right coach and most importantly your attitude towards being coached and doing the work. If you are looking for fixed, guaranteed promises and quick fixes. I am not the coach for you. I believe in doing the work, getting uncomfortable and where necessary digging deep. And at the base believing that there is always a way and giving up is not an option.
You have already come so far!
When you decide you are ready, after our initial acquaintance we will work on defining what it is you want to work on. This however may change during our time together as it sometimes happens that subjects arise that need more attention.
We will work together for a minimum of 12 weeks with the combination of 1:1 coaching calls, practices and supportive content.
As a Transformational Embodiment Coach graduate I am trained and certified in multiple modalities to provide a more holistic approach to your journey. Real transformation is not just a mental facet, through different practices e.g breath work, EFT, you will be able to create lasting embodied changes.
At the end of our time together you will:
- Have more clarity
- Enjoy more fulfillment and ease
- Have more energy
- Experience more joy
- Gain more trust in yourself
- Be yourself more unapologetically
The coaching provided is virtual, 1:1 and over the course of a minimum of 12 weeks. Within this time period you will have direct access to me through Virtual Video Calls, Voxer voice and text messaging and unlimited email.
The written coaching materials are all in English, however as I am also fluent in Dutch, the actual calls can be in Dutch too if you so desire.

Why choose me as your coach?
I understand you.
I have been where you are now. Stuck in survival mode, getting by and silently in a downward spiral that is slowly draining you from every faith that things could ever be different. You are maintaining habits and beliefs that do not serve you. And you know it. Still you cannot seem to stop. Knowing that you once were a victim of the things that happened to you when you were younger, being a survivor now meaning that you made it, you overcame it.
Yet why doesn't it feel that way?
All the hard work you have put into yourself, with or without professional help and still you wonder, is this it? Is this really it?
From the outside things may seem right or even great to some. However, you know that something just doesn't feel right. Something is amiss, you just can't grasp that what and you feel you cannot work yourself out of it. You think you probably could be worse off, do you really want to wait around and experience that?
What you are feeling is real.
Your exhaustion is real.
Your sense of overwhelm is real.
That empty feeling is real.
Your loss of self is real.
Your longing for ease is real, and so is your longing for more joy, fulfillment, freedom and being you unapologetically!
All the work you have done until now was great. However, it did not give you the change that you could have had.
It took me years to learn that when you want real transformation, just working on the mental aspect of yourself is not enough. This was years of a lot of pain, tears, feeling depressed, deflated and defeated.
To experience true transformation, one must focus on all the areas that make up who you are. Your spiritual, mental, emotional, energetic and physical self. Only then one can experience true and lasting change. Transformation embodied.
The moment I learned this and started to implement the tools and practices, things that I would have never thought possible started to shift. I finally felt understood and really seen and heard. Finally I was literally starting to move in alignment, with my whole self. I learned that life isn't supposed to be a constant fight, a struggle. I learned how to listen to the voice within and trust it. I grew more confident in speaking my truth and asking for what I needed.
My life long mantras were finally coming true "The best is yet to come" and " Something greater awaits you".
It has been many years now since I first experienced what it felt like to no longer be a surviver, and fully feeling like a Thriver! For the first time ever, you would find me whistling on a groceries run, having more patience and love for not only myself, for everyone I crossed paths with. I learned to dream again and believe that anything was possible for me. I no longer was just surviving. I was Thriving!
And so can you!
I truly believe that you are Blessed just the way you are and that something greater awaits you.
You just get to decide when.
And when you are ready, I am here to help you. Just book a complimentary discovery call with me and I would love to chat with you about how I can help you.
Thrive Coach transforming you from survivor to thriver. Guiding you to self reliance with confidence, self-trust and excitement.
With gratitude I use a treasure chest of my own personal history of intense growth work and transformation. I have been through several traumatic and challenging times in my life as well as decades of deep inner work. This through counseling, psychotherapy, training, coaching and life itself. A combination that makes me unique and highly capable of coaching you with dedication and authenticity.
My joy in this work is to see you shine as the bright light that you are! Always meeting you where you are and expanding your awareness from there and beyond.
There is always a way. From a young age I was always described as being optimistic, solution focused and not one to give up easily. Qualities that have enriched my private and professional life tremendously.
For a good 17 years I was a flight attendant at KLM. This year I decided to leave my job as a Purser (chief flight attendant). After nearly two decades of flying around the world, visiting the most amazing and unexpected places, I felt it was time to live a different life, to experience new things. I longed for more freedom, more fulfillment, more autonomy and in a way more structure. It was one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make. Ask anyone in the airline industry, it is not a job, it is a lifestyle.
I am so grateful for all the wonderful years I had up in the skies and foreign places. Learning special skills, meeting new people, eating delicious foods, living out of my suitcase and being jet lagged. I appreciate it all. It all adds to the enrichment of my life and me as a person.
