Hello Dear Reader, thanks for visiting!
My name is Marleen and I love getting the best out of people, igniting their wish to improve themselves using their own strength as it also helps me keep in touch with my own highest aspirations in life.
In my previous profession as a SLT (Speech and Language Therapist) I have had ample experience with encouraging people of all ages to do work that is actually challenging for them. What I found is that emotional and character growth can be a difficult process at times. It often helps if one doesn’t have set expectations of how things should be.
Another rewarding thing is being constantly challenged to be flexible and creative. Everybody is different, so no working plan is the same and despite such a plan, each time you meet up you will often find a person has changed in a different way than anticipated. This is due to change, growth mood and what is going on in their lives. Adaption is key which is something I thrive on!
On a personal level, some of my pastimes include my love of cooking and exploring different cuisines from around the world. I enjoy gardening and growing my own food where possible, walking, cycling, photography, meeting like-minded people, reading, writing and reflection and meditation.
My journey started when life forced me to wake up -a somewhat uncomfortable reality check that saw me fall into quite a deep depression. Now I am in the process of reshaping myself, my life and finding a whole new person along with the meaning that makes it all worthwhile. Join me and let’s transform!
