You work hard and you are dedicated to your job. This probably means that you move through your career smoothly. New opportunities find their way to you and your development occurs ‘naturally’.

It is great if your career evolves this way! But what if something essential changes within your company or your personal life? Or what if you are ready for the next step, but there are no opportunities for that right now?

You want control over your own career. You don’t want circumstances to determine your next step, you want to make a choice yourself. You want to create your own opportunities. And I can help in doing just that, by supporting you in:

  • making choices that align with who you are and what is important to you.
  • taking a step back, so you can re-evaluate your work, your career and the balance with your personal life.
  • translating insights into tangible actions, that you are able and willing to take

I offer individual programs and in-company solutions.


My name is Tessa Jansen – van Schoonhoven. I started out as a chemical engineer once. I pursued a career in communications and consultation to explore what better suited me as a profession. And since discovering that 6 years ago, I work with other engineers to help them get the most out of themselves.

I guess you can still recognize my engineering background in the way I work: analytical, practical and down-to-earth. I have also learned – sometimes the hard way  – to make room for my intuition and listening to my gut. I value the insights that that gives, but in the end I am always focussed on one question: What can you do to translate your insights into your daily practice, so that you know what to do about it.
