coaching creative minds
in science, education & arts
Are you broadly thinking? Are you creative, for example as a scientist, teacher, artist or otherwise? Would you like to explore or better use your talents? Do you like a sparring partner about choices to make? Is your work or life insufficiently energizing? Do you lack the time to dwell on your restlessness? Sometimes it`s hard to realise its origin, and you need a sparring partner. Sometimes you just want get loose from everything, to clarify your questions that really matter.
I have been working as a scientist, teacher and team leader. I have plenty experience with creative people. After many years in higher education, I am now a coach since 2020. The people I coach are mostly broadly thinking, creative minds, scientists, teachers, artists or musicians. Core values in my coaching are authenticity and creativity.
Questions that matter
Coaching by me is a common quest, for your questions and the answers that suit you.
Questions that people often explore with me:
- What is my strength? How can I deploy this optimally, for a more energetic way of living?
- How do I make choices? How do I develop myself, authentically, in a direction that suits me?
- How do I obtain a better balance between ratio and feeling? Between knowledge and intuition?
- How can I utilize my creativity? How can I both structure and stimulate this?

As a coach I guide people in their journey, considering questions on energy balance, authenticity, and creativity. This concerns both personal as well as professional development. I offer individual coaching sessions, workshops (online and live) and intervisie-coaching. I am experienced in coaching in English. Language of the workshops depends on the participants, either English or Dutch.
What people say
“Ineke is a very energetic, creative, empathetic and intelligent person. She dares to ask all sorts of questions, to experiment with different techniques and approaches. At the end of each session, she was capable to bring all the input back to the initial question. Ineke loves coaching and this is evident in each moment. And it was fun.”
Ineke about illustra
It is my belief that everybody can grow optimally when you can do this close to your own talents, identity and mission. To strengthen this, the quick pace and everyday rush are not very suitable.
To search in coaching sessions for what stimulates you, for your intrinsic values, many people can grow with more focus.
“I know which door I need to open, even if there were thousands of ways in and out around me. A little silence is the only thing I need.”
