Intake Life Coaching


In a telephone or online intake interview of about 30 minutes, we investigate whether we can be there for each other. The click also determines our success. We determine the purpose of the process and I explain the approach - the number of sessions to be expected, the frequency, the rate, and other practical matters.

In the event that the client is different from the Coachee himself / herself, a manager or HR employee may be present at the intake interview.




I can use the locations of the Coachhuis, which makes coaching possible in Amsterdam, Amstelveen, Bussum, Hilversum and Utrecht.

Coaching on location or walking coaching is also possible, inquire about this.


It is always possible to coach online, I prefer to use Zoom, where I can use a fully secured connection as the host.




The intake interview is free for those with serious interest. 


My rates start from EUR 85 (incl. VAT) per hour for private individuals and from EUR 130 (excl. VAT) for employers / organizations.

For business travel time I charge EUR 12.50 per 15 minutes and for travel costs EUR 0.35 per kilometer (excl. VAT).



A session lasts 1 to 1.5 hours depending on how the session goes and a process consists of an average of 5 sessions. Canceling coaching is free of charge up to 48 hours in advance, after which a charge of 50% for a 1.5 hour session will incur.
