About me

About me

My name is Anne and with Momentum Coaching I coach and accompany people in their search towards the realisation of their dreams. 

I have been happily married to Mark for more than 30 years now and together we have 3 beautiful grown-up children: Niko, Nina and Benjamin and 3 grandsons: Delano, Livio and Fons.

I am the living example of the saying 'you are never too old to learn'. Indeed, coaching was not my first calling. After an interesting career at the Catholic University of Leuven, I started my own company as Professional Conference Organiser, which fitted some of my talents well, and I discovered a fascinating world of science and innovation.

However, after 18 successful years, the work could no longer offer me the fulfillment I was looking for and I became keenly aware of other themes that were closer to my heart in this phase of my life. This brought me to the fruitful path of coaching. I also discovered that these themes had already been present for quite some time:

  • I have always had a clear preference for the natural course of things. As a person and as a coach I firmly believe in the natural creativity and resourcefulness of my clients to take their lives in their own hands and to solve their own problems. By extension Mother Nature is a powerful source of inspiration to me. 'Lessons taught by wild geese'' and Winter’s life lessonare blogs that I wrote about this. This is also linked to  my work around ritual elements.
  • Another theme that emerged is empathy. I easily sense the emotions of people around me, as if they were my own. It takes me little effort to see the world from someone else’s point of view. As a coach this strength is essential. In addition, I learned to be very present and to listen without judgment.
  • I have also always been very enterprising and creative.  I was an entrepreneur for 18 years, with my own company in conference organisation, employing 4 persons at its peak. When this no longer offered me the fulfillment I sought, I promptly changed course. As a coach I also want for my clients to take the steps and actions required that lead to a greater fulfillment in life.
  • Last but not least, there is the theme of service-mindedness towards others. The link to coaching strikes me now as well. To make a difference, to help others make their dreams come true and reach their potential, is what attracts me in this work.

In my coaching journeys with clients we also look for their own themes. If you want to know how I do this, read more HERE.
