There are two parts to lasting peace and joy. The first is what you can do, and the second is what God can do with you, for you, and within you. If you were a cup filled with soiled water, you could do your work cleaning the water, but it is He that could fill the cup.
Some of the tools below can help with you cleaning your water, but only being with God will keep it filled.
Coaching – Self Development Tools – Financial Services – Healing – Spiritual Guidance
In 2012, I helped some friends heal and deal with the things they were going through, mentally, emotionally and physically, at the time using a combination of Reiki and informal coaching. I then took a 7-week trip to Nepal, Tibet and India. Whilst there, I realized I was passionate about assisting others in this way. I decided to enhance my skills in these areas.
I looked to the International Coaching Federation (‘ICF’)¹, the largest global organization of professional coaches. I selected Consciousness Coaching² as my program of choice. I completed the Master Levels I, II, III part 1, and III part 2, all in 2013. An additional step could be to take the exam and register with Consciousness Coaching and/or ICF, although I have not felt that calling.
Benefits of Coaching
If you are facing issues such as a sense of discomfort, unpleasantness, problems, resistance, anxiety, sadness, depression, a sense of “stuckness”, an overactive imagination, or overthinking, you may benefit from coaching. That will support you to identify the issue, be with it, see it for what it truly is, and allow you to actively deal with it. It may provide relief, acceptance, dissolution of the issue at hand, or other benefits. It does not matter whether these circumstances arise in your work, or personal life, or spiritual development. All are well-suited to be addressed in that way.
Clients have dealt successfully with, among others, the following:
- Unexpected relationship breakup and financial struggles
- Fear of lack of money learned in the childhood home
- Not feeling good enough and staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship
- Placing almost all attention on extreme tail-end likelihood events as a result of desiring to avoid such scenarios or being afraid of them
- Letting the desire of the ego determine the course of a career rather than doing what is right for the person
- Feelings of loneliness and separation as a result of Corona measures
- Feeling overwhelmed with the struggles of balancing home and work life
How do I coach?
I coach by guiding you in whatever is appropriate for you, whether that be getting clarity on what your goals are, understanding how to achieve them, and/or achieving them. In doing so, I trust whatever guidance of the Holy Spirit is given to guide us.
This approach can be very different to how most people coach. My experience is however that this best supports the clients I coach in the long term, even though the learning process may be more intense than through another approach.
Self Development Tools
Over time, I have gratefully used many tools kindly provided by others to support my growth. As my learning progressed, I was able to share some of that with others. More recently, I find myself called to make more of what I have learned available. I have decided to publish books and other e-learning tools and content to support their learning and growth. In effect, all the items described above can be done by you too, if you commit yourself to learning how.
In my 25-year career in investment management, I have been involved in many of the aspects of running and governing investment management businesses. I studied Econometrics with a specialization in Quantitative Finance; received my CFA-charter; was President of CFA Society Netherlands; worked in the investment management department of a public pension fund; was a co-founder of a private equity fund of funds business, developing, marketing, selling, investing, and managing products and services; ran a management company managing publicly traded equity and fixed income funds; and have been Chairman of several alternative investment funds.

Healing & addressing the cause(s) of being unwell
Healing takes place when the discomfort is addressed at its source. When the source is not just something physical, but with for example an underlying emotional or mental unresolved issue, it pays off to address those things also. There are many approaches to this, and I have found that working in the name of Jesus Christ with the Holy Spirit works best for addressing both the symptoms that are experienced, as well as the spiritual cause behind it. I am happy to do so on your behalf.
If you are facing physical discomfort, or strong emotional or mental trauma, then healing, oftentimes preceded by driving out the spiritual cause, may be appropriate. First, I/we sense what the trauma is, and then deal with in the appropriate manner by calling on those things to be addressed in the right way in His name.
Some items that have been dealt with:
- lower back and leg pain as a result of herniated discs
- acid reflux burning the throat and diminishing taste
- strong fear of heights and driving
- inability to sleep after stroke
- persistent headaches
- kidney failure as a result of intense auto-immune response
I am happy to share what I have learned with those willing to listen.
