I am passionate about coaching and training and self-improvement in all areas. The tools that I use and the experience I bring to the table are suitable for all levels of coaching and training.
Self-development and the development of others has been a serious interest of mine for many years. I have trained extensively in a constant effort to improve and and give many courses and workshops to keep the practice going.
I have an Advanced Diploma in Personal, Leadership and Executive Coaching and also an Advanced Diploma in Corporate Wellbeing that are recognised by both the ICF and EMCC. I am a member of and accredited with both EMCC and ICF (PCC)
I am based halfway between Brussels and Leuven and love travelling when I get the chance.
I am a member of the EMCC Belgium board and can be found on the EMCC website here
I have reinvented myself many times over the years and thus have a far greater understanding of the struggles we all go through.
Among my values are: Open-mindedness | Servicing | Counselling | Adapting | Consideration for others | Fairness

"A conversation with Andy is a delight and an opening into many insights on a very personal level."
What else do I do?
I am also a very experienced Trainer, Facilitator, and Event organiser and Host.
I am co-host/owner of:
The Brussels Imagination Club, A space for trainers, facilitators and other coaches to run practice workshops to hone their skills. They can focus on skills, techniques, ideas or simply keep their hand in at running a workshop. We don't allow sales pitches or really polished workshop, it is a place to practice and learn as a group.
Cooperativa Kreativa, which is a co-creative space, run by 5 people so we they can host others, have our own supportive community, and have a space we can call our own. We hold our own events, events for others and I often hold coaching sessions there it is so comfy.
I work with the Charity PTPI, We work to improve peoples lives, again we organise events that you can join, have a look at our Meetup page.
Often I work for Talent Interlock running workshops to help people find a job (they like). And also by helping them write their CV, Cover letter, improve their LinkedIn profile etc.
I am currently running a series of Wellbeing workshops for the Union Syndicale Fédérale
I am available for;
Public speaking opportunities, interviews, TV/radio/podcasts, voice-overs, facilitation, team-building, 1-to-1 mentoring, group work, and project advice (idea bouncing).
I also organise well-being retreats/weekends. These are for anyone interested in health and wellbeing in general. They are generally populated by people I know and by like-minded people.
send me an e-mail if you wish to arrange a chat or give me call on +32 496 27 39 05
I talk about and run workshops on the topic of Happiness. I believe it is worth finding out what makes us happiest and then doing more of it.
Cooperativa Kreativa is a creative, co-creation space where I work with a group of 4 other people, each running their own projects and we also collaborate on a regular basis..
Here I am pictured outside our office space where we welcome people to our workshops and events.
Workshops and Events
For more than 14 years, we've been hosting facilitators and trainers to try out new ideas in short, interactive workshops on all kinds of topics. It is a unique opportunity to try out new content, new techniques and new ideas with a receptive, international audience.
For participants, it is a chance to learn something new in the context of a 90 minute workshop. Moreover, because of the nature of our workshops, participants can look forward to a very low cost learning experience without sales pitches.
This is where I write about anything that means something to me.
It is not updated on a regular basis, just whenever I feel like writing.
