Personal Growth Coach
I am Anouk, a personal development coach and career consultant. While my husband and I live New Zealand, a beautiful country with stunning landscapes and friendly people, we also love traveling and every year spend some time in Europe or South East Asia. I enjoy a calmer way of life, and my core values include simplicity, personal growth and investing in experiences rather than things.
For the last 15 years I have been teaching English as a second language both in different institutions and to private clients. While still teaching ESL, Academic Writing and exam preparation, I turned to career consulting when my students started approaching me about helping them with their CVs, cover letters, references, interviews and such. It was very fulfilling to witness my students land their dream jobs.
As exciting as expanding into career consulting was, I soon observed that my clients needed more than just advice on job searches and help with interview technique. Many of them struggled with confidence, identifying their values and finding their purpose in life. Some needed tools that would help them become more productive and tips that would allow them to achieve their goals. Others struggled with building a successful career without neglecting other important parts of their life.
This inspired me to do more research on goal setting and living with purpose. After a while it became clear that both personal and professional success goes hand in hand with wellness and self-care. Over the years I have learned many effective techniques and approaches to help create a more productive, yet balanced life. I was also able to develop my own set of tools focusing on growth and meaningful living.
If you are searching for a renewed sense of clarity and purpose, or find yourself in need of energy to finally pursue what matters, if you want to remove the overwhelm and live a fulfilling life, explore my courses that are designed to do just that!
