About Karina

It is my mission to support others and organisations to become happier and more successful.

No guts, no glory. But for courage, you need confidence. Many people fail to reach their potential because they are too afraid or lack confidence. How incredible would it be, if you would not let your (lack of) confidence hold you back? If you would feel ‘good enough’.

How I can help you

I have been through a lot and I mostly did what was expected of me, not what I wanted. I was insecure. did not dare to do many things, and I often worried about what other people thought about me. But there was one area I was not insecure about: my clothing style. The compliments helped me to increase my self-confidence in many other areas. It took a while to discover my pattern of doing what was expected of me, before I started to do what I wanted. When I finally let go of my fears, step by step, my self-esteem started to grow, and I felt less anxious. By combining education, experience and intuition I hope to help you gain more confidence and become happier.

My background

I love connecting people and helping them achieve their full potential. I have worked in the corporate world for years and was often automatically coaching other people. It is incredible to see how people flourish and find their strength when they become more confident and self-aware. 


On several occasions, I stepped out of my comfort zone: In 2003, I quit my job at Unilever and moved to England with my family. Here I started studying again. Later, I left my well-paying job to become an entrepreneur and set-up my own clothing line. My self-esteem increased with some ups and downs in between. At some moments, it was fragile, but at other moments I found increased strength. This made me realize how makeable confidence is. After years in the corporate world at multinationals, I experience the importance of confidence. The more powerful I felt, the more opportunities I got or created and the easier I could fulfil tasks.  

Not everything I did was successful, but I learned so much from it. By doing things that got my out of my comfortzone, my confidence grew. I am less strict and much kinder to myself. I accept myself for who I am with all the positive and negatives. And how great is it, that I can share this with you to help you achieve the same.

In all the (life) lessons that I may share with you, the most important one is that the closer you are to yourself, the more powerful and relaxed you are. And that is precisely what I want to support others with. I will let you rediscover what it is like to be in touch with yourself. How to live from complete confidence and from there on, explore all the possibilities.

Because one thing is for sure, the possibilities are endless.


What customers say about me

"Your added value derives from your unique combination between your business savviness and your very female soft side, while remaining grounded. You dare to ask the right questions and are not afraid to continue asking if you sense that there is a deeper unspoken layer. You look at people with compassion and openness and have a very unique and special appearance.


"During the coaching session I said that at some point I would like to become a business woman. Look at me now!"


Let me help you increase your self-esteem and reduce stress.
