I first got in touch with Loes because I struggled with confidence, especially in a work context. I was a 30 year old woman who felt very lost — I was looking to move forward in my career, but wasn’t too sure where to start or what I could do.
The first big learning from my time with Loes is that there isn’t ‘work’ confidence and ‘home’ confidence. This journey was about building up confidence in myself, which would then be evident in any situation. We had many conversations that were hard to have, but that needed to be had. It probably sounds a little odd, but it almost felt like after each session I could feel myself grow!
Loes is one of the kindest people I have met (well, virtually!): warm, funny, empathic, yet knows what she is talking about and is so knowledgable. I look back on my time working with Loes so fondly, not only because we had a great time, but because I can see and feel the difference in myself. My personal and work life have really improved, not just internally, but managers and peers noticed a difference in me too. I still use the techniques I learnt.
Loes has a special way of being challenging yet supportive, I cannot recommend working with her enough. For anyone who is considering working with her, I would say go for it! Throw yourself into it and be open and honest. If you gain half as much as I did, you will not regret it. My time with Loes was invaluable to me — in some ways I didn’t quite realise how much I needed our sessions until looking back.
