Make impact by being yourself
enjoy success and fulfilment


Awake Leadership
VIP Mentor Program

Exclusive attention just for you

Would you like to experience more success and fulfilment?
Are you not quite able to achieve what you want or do you not know what your next step is?
Would you like to have more peace of mind, be able to regulate your emotions better & strengthen your leadership? 

On your own it can be quite complicated to use your time, attention and energy optimally and to take the right steps at the right time. Together you see much more than alone and to see your blind spots you just need someone else. In addition, I have a very sharp sensitivity, high intuition and a lot of knowledge and experience, which means I can help you quickly.

In a VIP Mentor Program, I am happy to guide you in Awake Leadership. We look at your life from a spiritual perspective and ensure that you live more consciously as a person. From connection with your own, deep core you will develop your ‘quality of being’ and involve your head, body and soul in your goals and actions. From a higher level of consciousness, your life gets more meaning and purpose. As a result, you will experience more energy and zest for life and enjoy everything much more.

Do you recognize yourself in this?

  •   You want to make a positive contribution to the bigger picture without people finding you vague.
    The split between your feelings and your mind is sometimes difficult. You want to make spirituality (although you may not call it that) understandable and practical, so that you can use it concretely and effectively..
  • You know that there is more in you than is coming out now and you want to get to work on this..
    You do not get your own vision and strategy completely clear, you have difficulty realizing it or you are unable to get others to join in. You are not using your time, attention and energy optimally. You either outrun yourself or hold yourself back. You want to break free from certain patterns and develop your ‘quality of being’.
  • You feel a general pressure and this hinders your performance and relationships. 
    With all your different tasks and roles, it’s quite difficult to do everything right and keep everyone
    (including yourself!) happy. Despite success, you regularly have a restless or even empty feeling or you just don’t know exactly what you want as the next step.
  • You are sometimes too much in your head and analysis (IQ) and you want more balance with the human side (EQ).
    You seek deepening in authenticity, connection and the essential human factors that contribute in all kinds of ways to your leadership, successful collaborations and meaningful results.
  • You want to realize your potential, ambitions and dreams and thereby contribute to the bigger picture.
    You want to make an impact by being yourself; powerful, vulnerable and confident. You believe in a new reality and want to be an inspiring example. You wish yourself (and your team) success and fulfilment.

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom

Mijn name is Simone
Ik support you in Awake Leadership

Inner work. Outer impact.

After a successful business career in 2011, I experienced a serious burnout and personal crisis. I had given too much of myself, hadn’t considered my own deepest dreams and ambitions and placed others before myself.

This made me delve into what it means to be human, how to take good care of yourself and really enjoy who you are and what you do with a zest for life. I learned enormously effective perspectives, strategies and actions that not only ensure health and well-being but also optimal pleasure, success and results.

Working with me is about:

  • Sustainable transformation from within
  • More conscious choices in thoughts, emotions and behavior and more confidence in your self-wisdom and intuition
  • Fairer relationships and more effective partnerships

My own base is about:
practical spirituality< /strong>
mindfulness &
emotional intelligence
These are also the basic ingredients of the VIP Mentor Process
that will ensure your success and satisfaction.

Now is just the right time for action
This is a really big gift to yourself. I work 1 on 1 with programs from 1 to 6 months. We are guaranteed to achieve very concrete results in this.

Simone has been more than a facilitator. She has been the guiding light taking the group through the incredible journey  of understanding what mindfulness is and how practicing could have an extremely positive impact in our lives. We felt grateful to have the opportunity to learn from her experience. She has demonstrated such a professional and, at the same time, such a human approach, that we forgot we were in a training session. It has been really a life changing moment for most of the people in the room and we will be always thankful for having the opportunity to meet her.”

Simone has conducted a series of online workshops 'Three Strategies for a Strong Mind'. The workshops were extremely well received. The format was very engaging and informative. Simone has a quiet strength that simultaneously puts people at ease and draws them into the story, which can be difficult virtually. Participants have reported that the workshop has given them very practical strategies to increase their resilience, that they have been able to put this into practice and experience clear benefits.

The Search Inside Yourself leadership training offers valuable practical ways to develop leadership by working with mindfulness. With the practices offered in the training you can work from the inside out; learn to improve the connection with yourself and with others by using mindfulness and emotional intelligence at the workplace. Simone has the ability to let you experience mindfulness in a gentle, inspiring and very accessible way. ,

The Search Inside Yourself training I took with Simone gave me great tools, both work and private related. This is a must for everyone that is looking for a more balanced life or is struggling. SIY provides a mindset that makes you resilient in many situations and phases in your life. A very good basis to  step back, adjust and move forward. Simone is a very clear communicator and engages you step-by-step.

Mark de Weerd

Leader of Change


In a modern company culture, mindfulness has an important role to play in associates health and company achievements. Simone has helped us to roll-out the Search Inside Yourself program and supported us in the success we have seen with the sessions. The program is packed with scientific findings to illustrate the benefits of mindfulness and emotional intelligence. It has been exciting to work with Simone to realize how powerful mindfulness can be in a work environment. Simone always comes with great positivity, ready to improve the processes and fresh ideas to ensure the best outcome. We have educated more than 500 participants in PVH and heard a lot of positive feedback from associates, many seeing the program as a gift.

Simone is a modern spiritual guide with a tailor-made approach. She provides a comfortable safe space for her clients to share their challenges. The way she explains sometimes difficult concepts in simple, easy-to-understand terms has been very insightful. Simone brings relevant advice and ‘food for thought’ on how to live life in the way that we want.

The Awake Leadership training contributes to both the personal and professional developments of our employees and leaders. They received new tools to listen consciously and to connect with their surroundings in an attentive way. Also really being heard. This stimulates the emotional side of leadership and generates a part of increasing awareness. Thank you for the very valuable training Simone!

Lynn de Veen

Simone gave an Effective Teaming workshop to my team. She helped us rethink our ways of working. We build a common agreement together on how to build more trust. We all learned a lot form it and very much appreciated the discussions raised. Thank you, Simone!


Strategy & Business Development


In times of hybrid work models, team efficiency in regards on how to engage and build trust is ever more important. Simone's approach of marrying strong concepts with awareness works great. This training made a real difference for the team!

Hannes Leukhardt

VP Group Business Development


Simone is very strong in looking at the individual and to know what this person really needs, She is capable of going into the depths with you to shine light on the underlying issues to transform them. I can honestly say that all private sessions with her have been worth every euro. Her personal approach and corporate background make Simone the ideal coach in these times in which we all look for a new balance.
