Training, qualifications & experience

Hi, I am Tineke, I am a certified workplace coach, living and working in Scotland, Glasgow. Originally Dutch, I started my career as a Maritime Officer with the Merchant Navy and spent several years at sea. Since my return from the sea many years ago, I stayed involved in many other facets of the industry, both in corporate and academic environments. Working in the wonderful male-dominated multicultural industry of shipping for over 20 years, this industry has taught me a lot about human interaction and the challenges these interactions sometimes bring.

Further information

Coaching is a powerful way to tap into your potential. As a coach, I can support you in finding your full potential and help you to overcome blockages so that you can live the life you were meant to live.


I began working with Tineke at a time when I was very unhappy with my work. My main focus was finding my passion. I have had 5 sessions with Tineke and very happy where we got to, I have learnt a lot about myself from the experience. My favourite exercise was the future pacing. I liked how resourceful and knowledgeable Tineke is. I would recommend her as a coach.

Very professional and friendly coaching that uses emotional intelligence & self-awareness tools to help to achieve your goals and refocus your ambitions into achievable outcomes.

— Kate, Senior Administrator - Glasgow UK

All I needed was a little push toward the right way of thinking and that is exactly what Tineke gave me. I believe in “ Where there’s a will, there’s a way “, but the life I am living blinded me for too long. During our conversations together it became clear to me that there are possibilities and hope to achieve what I always dreamed of. You proved to me that there are many ways to overcome my fears of leaving my current job.

My most useful insight was that there are many opportunities in life waiting to be hunted. You were like a slight light came to my dark room. Your light was more than enough for me to see the door and open it and know my right path.

Normally the person who is under a stress or facing a problem cannot think properly, I think he needs support and help from another person who can see the situation from different perspectives.
