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, or longing.  What does life look like?  Does it get better, stay the same or does it get worse?

 Could it be time to listen to your heart’s desires?

If you are ready, I’m here to help you bring that voice out from your heart and into the WORLD. The only question left for you to answer is;  Are you ready? 


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 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 :-))

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.

Why do we need to REtreat?

Every now and again it is an amazing gift to give yourself to get away and retreat.  And there are some really great people, ladies, out there who make it happen by hosting them! Who doesn't need a retreat every once in a while? I mean, TREAT is built...
