Nine years ago I decided to leave my job. As a single mother of two young children, many people thought I was crazy to do so right after the outbreak of the credit crisis. But I never doubted. In 2010, I co-founded The Academy of Understanding with my colleague Ewald Theunisse. We have one clear mission: helping to improve mutual understanding whereever we can. With that mission in mind we developed The Code of Understanding.

There are now thousands of people who have completed our trainings and workshops. People in many organizations have read our book, or downloaded the Code of U app and are now happily and successfully implementing The Code of Understanding in their lives and work. This number continues to steadily grow, just like our great team of talented and inspired trainers, coaches, and ambassadors. I happily look at the future because the passion and energy to further develop the Code of Understanding is as great as ever. Why not join us?

I have always enjoyed my jobs, but nothing has compared to what I am doing with The Academy of Understanding – it is great to work on something that is so impactful. Working with teams and seeing trenches become walkways, and the sounds of conflict becoming sounds of laughter is wonderful. Seeing people rediscover themselves and other is sometimes truly unforgettable. These are experiences that give color to my work and life.

We started this adventure with just two of us. In the meantime we have gained travel companions. I look forward to every step that we take together in the pursuit of mutual understanding. Hopefully you will join us.

Variety has been a recurring theme in my life which is why it took me some time to find my place. I studied French, Communication, Public Relation, Marketing, and have worked in a diverse range of organizations as a consultant but I ended up as an independent professional coach. This is where I felt much more at home. I facilitated in the MMS coach training for 4 years, and it is through MMS that I am certified as a Professional Certified Coach. I am also active as a ICF Mentor Coach. Next to my own coaching practice, I work intensively with The Academy of Understanding.

Working as a Life Coach and Trainer variety is key: no team, no individual or any organization is the same, due to the human factor. That’s exactly where the potential and the pleasure lies for me. I now use the variety of my work experiences and extensive knowledge of coaching and personal development for the benefit of my clients and partners. People value the safe space I create for discovery and growth. It helps them to find the courage to overcome obstacles and take the next steps towards the desired results.

I believe that the Code of Understanding is easily applicable, interactive and playful, with a solid foundation of deep-felt understanding. It brings lightness and depth, the same way I like to work. The Academy of Understanding is a great and diverse team of people who make valuable contributions to understanding and tolerance! Clearly, that is where I belong.
