"Speakeasy"  - is how I named my new private office.


Traditionally „Speakeasies“ were secret small establishments where alcohol was served during the American Prohibition. Bars where people from different background, with different ideas could mingle behind closed doors.  A place where cultural, socioeconomic and racial barriers were broken down.


Although this Speakeasy only sits 2 and is not selling liquor, it is a confidential space, hidden in nature, where you can express yourself freely and experiment with new ideas. A place where brave futures can be imagined and shaped.

Curious what that is like? Then let's meet!

One-on-One coaching sessions with Dr. Nicole Van Hoeck

Experiential Coaching

"Life is not about finding yourself. It's about creating yourself." 


Experiential Coaching is a creative partnership that seeks to:

  • Ignite curiosity & passion – Experience the energy that arises through exploration and discovery.
  • Gain clarity – Identify, clarify and create a vision for what YOU want.
  • Reconnect with your intuition – Nurture the wisdom that moves at the edge of rational thinking and the felt experience throughout our body (our brain and body are connected).
  • Prepare for hurdles – Tap into your courage and strength to overcome the challenges that life throws at you.

(Experiential coaching is not psychotherapy! If you're suffering from a serious and/or diagnosed mental health problem that needs treatment  (e.g., suicidal thoughts, addictions, psychoses etc), I urge you to contact a specialised psychotherapist.)


Business Coaching

"Wisdom is knowing what matters, why it matters and how to achieve it." 


Business Coaching is for you when:

  • you're looking for a personal sparring partner and confidant.

Someone with whom you can exchange thoughts openly and explore different approaches, in an confidential environment. Depending on your wishes we focus on:

- clarifying and designing your goals, important ideas and/or long-term vision

- being better prepared for an important negotiation or decision

- balancing life and work

- improving your overall mental agility to increase your overall readiness to achieve your goals

- ...

  • you're ready to go beyond "the box" to find new possibilities.

A certain willingness to rethink is needed to discover new opportunities. Our meetings give you the freedom to explore and experiment with new ideas and methods.


Our meetings are tailored to you. This means that we can adapt the location -- online, at my private office "A Special Speakeasy" or another unique location -- and the time.  If you like,  we can also combine it with an outdoor activity (e.g., hiking or sailing) or an another exciting event. The sky is the limit.

Sounds Interesting?

Let's Meet!
