Life is okay.  But you have this little niggle, an inkling, an intuition to get started on that thing that you always wanted to do.  That thing haunts you from time to time with words like,

“Write a book”

“Start a non-profit organization, or business”

“Build an afterschool program for kids”

“Support a movement on that cause you care about”

“Make a career change that compliments your values and supports your ambitions”


The voice echoes in your head and pulls on your heartstrings.

Maybe you think you don’t have any time, or that you don’t have the right credentials or the resources, or that you can’t do it because you are needed at home?

Imagine what it would be like 5, 10, even 20 years from now if you don’t follow that intuition, niggle, itch or longing.  What does life look like?  Does it get better, stay the same or does it get worse?

 Could it be time to take a step towards that intuition?

It’s my personal mission to help you, if you are ready, to bring that voice out from your heart and into the WORLD.


Hi there,

I am Susan de Vriend.

Several years ago, I moved to the Netherlands for LOVE. The journey of being an expat, looking for employment, getting married, and finally, becoming a mother that made for a lot of resilience, flexibility and change that stirred so much up in me that most days I didn’t know who I was, or even, how to be ME.

I wanted to reconnect with myself. Find a way to make things feel more like ME while still living in this culture raising my family and strengthening my relationship with my husband. I knew deep down the answer could be found inside but…

Where would I start?


A few lovely words about working with me.

Susan helped me focus on barriers related to starting my own business. She helped to identify ways to overcome these barriers and what to do to avoid them in the future. What I discovered about myself in my session is that I can do this! I have the ability and if I dig deep enough I have the confidence. At the end of my coaching session with Susan, I felt open, confident and more positive. I had direction and focus.

Susan has a warm and loving personality and helps you unclutter the stuff you’re dealing with. She offers you a new perspective that resonates with you.At the beginning (of our session), I felt like I didn’t want to talk about money (resistance), and at the end, it felt more spacious and flowing. And I remembered that I am already on the right track, I just need to embed it more. Susan helped me to see the bigger picture in a sparkling and down-to-earth way, and she had good suggestions (and English words :-))

Do I have Permission?!

  Where do we get permission on things as we become adults? In this vlog, the topic is about how my body is giving me signals to slow down and rest which challenges my perceptions of how I see myself if I allow it.  If I allowed the rest then I would see myself...

Loneliness is part of a spiritual journey.

  Last post I spoke about Lonely and what it tells us about ourselves.  Where we may need to love our selves more. Today, I write about another side to lonely (loneliness rather) that often accompanies any in-depth inner work or spiritual...

What is Self-Love?

Everyone has their own definition of self-love.  The one I use is about BEING who you were always meant to be.  Only YOU have the answer to that question and rarely can we find the answer on our own. This is where my coaching can support and guide you back to loving yourself to freedom!

When you get in touch with that part of you that has been begging to be expressed, your life will be more powerful, more soulful, more creative, and more confident with little to no effort.  You will attract more into your life because when you love who you are then life has more value and meaning.  In these times, it is what is most needed.  We are all individuals who have special gifts to express in this world.  Now, it is time for you to step in, clear away the conditioning that you underwent from childhood, and begin from this beautiful place of self-love.  You can learn more about self-love by visiting my blog series here:
