Why Marjan?

The Work came into my life about 15 years ago, when my two children were young, my husband and I had our own business, and we both worked from home. It was a very busy and stressful time with little privacy. Forcing my family to "give me space" was not the way to go. It only caused me more stress, made me angry and impatient all the time. And even when everyone did what I wanted them to do (not often ...), it still didn't make me happy.

Doing The Work helped me find a lighter way of living, softer, more connected, with more understanding for my family and for myself and with more freedom for everyone. Still today, every worksheet I do is a return to that same truth and understanding. It never ceases to amaze me that looking inward is the only way out. Whether I have big or small problems: turmoil is turmoil.

Having worked in marketing and communications for over 20 years, I began working full-time as a coach and trainer in the field of personal development in 2007. Currently, I facilitate The Work, give group trainings in the Philippines and in the Netherlands and co-organize workshops in the Catalan Pyrenees.

My greatest wish for you is to experience the peace, power and possibilities that doing The Work has always brought me. I am happy to do The Work with you on any topic that causes you turmoil or frustration, makes you sad or makes you want to run away.

Together with my husband Ruud and our two sons Tim and Loek I live in the north of Spain.
