Hi, I'm

Writer and coach.

Let's find your love for life again!

Yeah, I know the dark side.

I did the booze and the drugs and the cigarettes.

I suffered through years and years of depression, anxiety, self-pity, anger and other devastating crap.

And one day while the pain seemed unbearable, I realised I wanted to quit, you know, really QUIT, getting out of existence.

But I didn’t.

And it’s all old news, my friend.

For over six years now, I’ve been more free and happy and creative and loving than ever before. Without ‘positive thinking’, without constantly working on myself.

It’s all truly effortless, relaxed, natural.

And I’d love to show you how it’s done.

Although my books are Dutch only (at least at this point in time), my transformative coaching is available in English.


Some clarity.

  • I work with people who feel lost, depressed, anxious, stressed out, bored, spiritually exhausted, hungry for awesomeness, addicted, ánd
  • I help clients ‘Find a cure for their success’ (real fulfilment instead of the endless quest for shallow, superficial, expensive stuff)
  • I show people the way to their inner source of wellbeing, growth, creativity, tenderness, enthusiasm and resilience
  • It’s like finally waking up to your true potential, exploring the space within and connection to the real magic in you
  • It’s fucking awesome


There’s nothing wrong with you. You’re not broken, and you never were.

I had a really cool, unashamedly human conversation with Jacquie Forde, a well-known Scottish coach and amazing human being. We had fun!

Oooooh, this was SUCH a pleasure! Having a chat with my favorite Amy: Dr. Amy Johnson. We talked about waking up, non-duality and feeling really scared. And much more!

Amanda O’Shea is a friend and an excellent coach (specialized in addiction), living in Spain. You couldn’t wipe the smile from her face in a million years! Listen to our bright and sunny conversation, that was the start of Amanda’s ’90 in 90′-project.

I had a really cool conversation with Christian McNeill, a great coach living in Glasgow. Together we explored the topic of ‘being addicted to bliss’, and the trap of working very hard to be a ‘spiritually perfect’ person. Christian, like me, has a personal experience with addiction, and we talked about how we can always find new ways to numb ourselves.

A conversation I really cherish, ‘Live Life Aligned With Jachym Jerie & Natasha Koo’. A sweet and bright couple that has a unique flavor when it comes to podcasts!

This is a really cool conversation I had with Dave Knight. About addictions and willpower (what is that anyway?), and the ‘risk’ of making complicated situations simple (which is the best thing we can do for suffering people, if you ask me). You’re gonna like it!

Now this was a pretty special and inspired conversation, while being on the podcast of Dennis Tardan. We talked about love, addiction, healing, consciousness and what it means to be a man in 2020.

Make some space, relax and surrender to this talk.

How do you sell yourself without selling yourself? How do you find your voice and learn to trust it? How do you get to a place where you genuinely feel real and inspired and authentic and powerful? In this conversation with the amazing Stephanie Benedetto Padovani we talk about all this stuff that can seem so daunting and complicated… and make it simple again.

No methods, no steps, no tricks. What’s left? Just find out for yourself!
