Individual and Team Profiles
Thank you for visiting my website. Here you will get an impression of what my work is all about in education and high performance sport.
I am a registered BKR career counsellor since 1996. A registered
counsellor in the Netherlands distinguishes him or herself from other counsellors or advisers because of their expertise in psycho diagnostics: working with professional tests,
assessments and questionnaires. Understanding, analysing and coaching behaviour with the help of psychodiagnostic tools.
A specific expertise I bring into the field is analysing aptitudes, learning strategies and motor behaviour and connecting the results in an individual career - or talent profile.
Sometimes I work for clubs where I am seen as an expert member of the trainer
staff. I will provide the staff with personal (motor) profiles after individual one-on-one psycho diagnostic assessments.
Most of the time I work for and with talented athletes on an individual basis. Many of them struggle finding balance in their dual career - In a dual career student-athletes combine a high level school - or study program with an elite or topsport program.
While working with junior and senior athletes in helping them achieve the next level in their career I explored the possibilities of using physical assessments besides the verbal aptitude testing, questionnaires and in depth interviews. I allready have a degree in psycho diagnostics and now I also have an international license in testing and profiling the body.
Working with athletes, who are trying to find balance in their dual careers, raised awareness for other struggling talented young people for example in the performing arts.
On team level
Sportscoaches and trainers ask me to profile their talented athletes. A personal profile is used to make athletes more aware of their potential but also their weaknesses (by the way as a result or an antagonistic effect
caused by talent). These profiles help to improve the quality of communication between athlete and trainer/coach. AND .. with teamprofiles it is easier to understand the strength of the team or of different team setups. Different gamestrategies will emerge because of the insights in teamstrenght.
Getting to the top, make the right careersteps, get through school and study and be valued for who you are. Find your passion, be in your element as a high achiever in study, work, arts, sport or what ever gets your attention.
