Welcome to Dayspring Lifecoaching
My name is Nicky van Tol-Williams and I'm an accredited life coach. I'm originally from England but have lived in the Netherlands for years. Maybe you are an expat living in the Netherlands and would prefer to discuss personal issues in English. My job as coach is to listen to you with empathy, patience and without judgement. You are the expert on your own life but it is sometimes hard to work things out on your own. There are many areas in which I can help you, such as:
- You are feeling the challenging impact of settling in a foreign country;
You would like to look for a new job, or make new friends but you feel unable to take the step;
Communication with family, friends, or colleagues is not as you would like it to be;
- You would like to be more assertive in your daily life.
You are very welcome for a 60-minute intake session free of charge. For more information on what to expect, and my fees, please click the buttons below.
I was born in the UK and have lived in the Netherlands for years. I have a husband, three children and five granddaughters. I spent many years working for organisations as a translator and language teacher in the Netherlands and Germany. A few years ago I decided to begin fulfilling a long-standing dream of a coaching/counseling practice. Psychology courses at university and a solid, accredited training as Coach Practitioner have allowed me bring this to fruition. I continue to study, follow workshops and take part in intervision and supervision as I believe ongoing professional and personal development to be essential.
Here is part of the poem which inspired the name I chose for my practice Dayspring Lifecoaching.
To his own dayspring,
He unpacks the loaded pern
Of all 'twas pain or joy to learn,
Of all that he had made".
From the Shepherd and Goatherd by
W.B. Yeats (1865-1939)
