Career coaching and burnout coaching in Eindhoven

How would your life look like, when you would do what you like most, using your capabilities and strengths? Wouldn’t you like to be in charge of your own life and career?
As a career and burnout coach I will guide and support you towards a life full of energy and fulfilment. I can help you with personal development, in finding your dream job, with leadership themes or the recovery of a (near) burnout.
If you have any questions or if you would like to see if career coaching could also help you further, please feel free to contact me.

Topics and questions I might help you with

– Your current job does not make you happy. Which job will suit you better?
– How to survive in the academic world (PhD, postdoc)?
– What should be the next step in your career?
– How can you improve your work-life balance?
– You (almost) completed your PhD. What to do next? Industry, university, or something else…?
– You suffer from a (near) burnout. How to recover and regain strength and energy?
– How to better handle the stress (at work or in general)?
– What do you need to do to transform from a specialist into a manager/team leader/project leader?
– How to become more visible at work and show more leadership?

For whom?

My clients often have a bachelor, masters or PhD degree (Bachelor, BA/BSc, MA/MSc, PhD). They are for example active as designer or engineer, researcher or scientist, project leader, policy advisor or manager and work within high-tech, R&D, ICT, (semi-)governmental organisations, academia or are self-employed. Testimonials of former clients (both Dutch and international/expat) can be found here.

Career coaching

As career coach I guide you in a professional way in your personal development, and growth in your career path. Although every person is different, questions often fit in these categories:
• What personal growth is needed to get the most out of my current job, or to be ready for my next step?
• I know I want to get a new position. However, what do I really like and how do I get there?
• I don’t know what I like to do for work. What job or career path fits my personality and strengths?

Burnout coaching

When you suffer from a (near) burnout, I can help you to get in charge of your life again, step by step. Topics:
– Acceptance of the situation
– Regain energy
– Reflection on the process of getting burnt out. What was your share in it, and what was your organisation’s share?
– Working on the things you can influence yourself
– Dealing with your emotions and recognizing your physical warning signals
– Getting back to work

In addition, I help people to better handle stress and take care of their energy balance.

Way of working

Your questions and goals will always be the starting point of our meetings. Therefore I often work via two parallel paths. Deepening your self-insight and facilitating personal growth on the one hand, and learning new skills for strengthening your personal efficacy on the other.

I use techniques and methods from coaching, management as well as leadership theories.

We will meet face to face in my office in Eindhoven or via Skype.


A coaching card fits a variety of coaching topics, ranging from personal development to career coaching and burnout. Depending on your questions, you choose an amount of sessions. A session takes 75 minutes, costs € 95,-, and tea, coffee, water and a small snack are included. Skype sessions are possible as well. Payment in advance.

“Sagitta has a unique style of coaching with particular emphasis on understanding the underlying thought process behind our accepted behavioral patterns and trying to bring a change at that level, so as to have a more lasting influence. She acted as mirror to my personality, making me realize my pitfalls and strengths. Such an approach coupled with her excellent training techniques have helped me enormously to have an impact in my work environment. It was a pleasure to work with Sagitta and thank you for your insights!”

“I chose Sagitta as my job coach because online aptitude tests didn’t help me. I found Sagitta to be very effective and flexible in her approach to the client. Everybody is different, has a different lifestyle and needs but Sagitta just gets you! She is a pro! She genuinely cares about well-being of her clients and went beyond the measure to help me reach my goal. It’s a hard work but it’s worth it.
Sagitta’s office is cosy and welcoming. You don’t feel like walking into another corporate-like place. It is a perfect environment to get inspired and make progress.
I highly recommend Sagitta as a job coach.”

Triggered by a burnout, I decided to check out from this path characterized more and more by organizing processes.

To bring my strengths, previous experience and even more important my mission in life together, I created my own dream job. Today I am active as a career and burnout coach for highly educated professionals and academics (both Dutch and expats).

I believe that everyone deservesa career which makes truly happy. Working from the inside out is my method to help you to define and achieve yours.
