About Isabel

Originally Dutch, I now live and work in Winchester, Hampshire UK, with my husband and 2 teenagers. I love being in the elements, cooking, playing saxophone, horse riding, gardening, reading, music (playing in several bands) and above all enjoying life!

With a background in Cartography, I’ve been working over 15 years in both commercial and non-profit (IT) industry as an engineer, consultant, salesperson, (project) manager and program manager. In 2003 I was diagnosed with and treated for breast cancer, a major wake-up call and turning point in my life! During this period of big changes life coaching helped me to re-design my life and to find a new life-balance.

End of 2006 I moved with my family to the UK where I retrained as a Life Coach at the prestigious Coaches Training Institute (CTI) for my professional coaching dregree. CTI is the first coach training school to have its programs accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF). Since then it has been a constant curve of development and learning with more training, courses, seminars, supervision and in developing workshops. In 2008 I established my own coaching practise in Winchester.

In 2009 I co-founded LYLAC: Live Your Life After Cancer. It's a unique programme in the UK to help people move forward in life after finishing their cancer treatment, using my personal cancer experience and life coaching skills. The tailor made LYLAC programme has helped already hundreds of cancer survivors to regain zest for life and direction.

My Coaching and Work Experience

With a background in cartography I’ve been working for 15 years in both commercial and non-profit (Geo-IT) industry as an engineer, consultant, salesperson, (project) manager and programme manager. In 2003 I was diagnosed with and treated for breast cancer.
End of 2006 I moved with my family to the UK where I retrained as a Life Coach at the prestigious Coaches Training Institute (CTI) in London for my professional coaching degree. In 2008 I started my own coaching practise.
In 2008 I co-founded LYLAC: Live Your Life After Cancer, an innovative and effective way to help people move forward in life after cancer treatment. This programme is based on life coaching skills and my own cancer experience. Both individual and group support possible. Individual support by phone world-wide.
I used to map the world, now I help people to map their lives.

To keep using both sides of my brain, I founded IsaWebdesign in 2009, using my technical IT-background and interest. It's a small, local web studio to help small businesses in having a personal and attractive web presence. In my spare time I'm a musician, playing saxophone in several local (big) bands, including running my own one: Savoy Affair. Specialties: Good listening, down to earth, open minded, strategic, creative.
