See & Be

No standard coaching programs.
You are the 'material' with which I work devotedly. Each coaching session is a unique experience, tailor made in the moment. You speak, I listen like no one ever listened to you before. Together we create the seemingly impossible into reality. 

I'll show you what thinking lead to your unwanted results. More importantly, then I help you see the thinking and actions that will lead to creating lasting results. 

Your life will never be the same. 

My work is suited for driven human being, (solo) entrepreneurs, sales teams and board members. 


Elsbeth helps me communicate from my core again. I dare to think bigger and communicate on a bigger level. I do that now more from my heart. In this way I can really convey what I want. I am not a product saleswoman, I have a mission. And I work towards that mission. - Laura Hommes

Elsbeth has helped me to focus and structure my work so that I can work more effectively and thus create a higher number of billable hours. With a clear and straightforward approach that you have to be able to appreciate, you quickly get to the core and learn what to do and what not to do. The sessions end with homework which you definitely will do. In short, coaching as coaching should be. - Jack de Bruijn

Elsbeth is decisive and quickly puts her finger on the sore spot. She knows where things are going 'wrong' and where she can give you a helping hand. Both privately and professionally she still helps me tremendously and I notice growth in all aspects. My thinking pattern is changing and I am much more aware of my actions. I can really recommend coaching via The Pink Walnut. It gives you so many new insights, I grant that to everyone! Thank you Elsbeth, for the tailor-made package. - Anne Eline den Harder

I typically work with clients between 6 to 24 months. All coaching is done live in The Netherlands, however since Covid online sessions have been introduced as well. Group coaching is done online. I work with people whose word is far more powerful than any contract can ever be. 

All investments need to be paid in lump sum prior to the first coaching session. I don't do refunds and in case you decide to quit the coaching, the proportional part will be transferred to a charity of my choosing. 

In case you don't have the resources at hand, I'll show you how your being great will find the means.

Working with me requires being an adult and responsible. You don't need me.

Each time it is fantastic to experience what happens when two or more people come together from a supported commitment, from the desire for change, the will to see what you do not yet see and the willingness to take the actions necessary to achieve lasting desired results. It is miraculous, integrative and direct yet loving. 

I enjoy working with a variety of people; I can get along with anyone, 'from upper to lower', each person is unique and is a source of unlimited potential. I like to tap into that. You can leave your ego at home.

This works requires showing up like you probably didn't before. This is not for everyone. It is for those who are willing to re-create themselves. 

"Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal." You are this ideal, success is the result.
