As a Health Coach, I create a supportive environment that will enable you to achieve all of your health goals. I have studied all the major dietary theories and use practical lifestyle coaching methods to guide you in discovering which approach works best for you.
My mission is to work with moms who want to improve their families diet & health, while taking good care of themselves too. I help them to find ways to cook healthy, tasty meals, without spending hours in the kitchen. My program is not just about healthy eating, it is about finding balance in life! Most approaches to nutrition dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, I coach my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline.
I have two children, and like all moms I am faced with the challenge to help them to grow up healthy in a world that is offering so many easy, unhealthy options. My eldest daughter suffered from reflux from just 6 months old and I was worried after several years with incessant need to increase her prescription medication. Finally I was relieved to discover a natural remedy that helped heal her. When my younger daughter had atopic dermatitis I used natural remedies and a change in diet so we could avoid using cortison cream. In changing our diet, I also noticed clear health improvements for myself. I had less colds in winter, lost weight and noticed that I had much more energy. I am originally from the Netherlands and came to Basel, Switzerland in 1996 to pursue a PhD in Biology. However, after starting a family and traveling our 'road to health', I decided to change my career as I would like to help others on this road too.
After comparing several options, I chose to receive my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on this knowledge, I will help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals. I speak fluent English, German and Dutch, and can offer my coaching services in each of these languages
