Nynke Bruinsma, Life and Career Coach 


Nynke BruinsmaIn everything Nynke does in her life, her interest in people is always guiding her. She’s curious about where someone came from and where someone is heading to. Literally she experienced this during her work on an international airport.

As a manager in health care she motivated her team to adjust to the organizational changes taking place. And now in her work as expat coach she’s thrilled about the opportunity to meet people on a one-to-one base and work on what’s important to them.

During her stays abroad she got impressed by the strength starting something new and leaving everything that’s familiar to you can bring. Her drive is to bring out peoples dreams and talents to the surface. She enjoys helping others see things more clearly and to search for the motivation to reach that final goal.

Nynke was born in the Netherlands and studied, worked and lived in Amsterdam and London. She has a Master’s degree in Sociology from the University of Amsterdam. During her studies she specialized in cultures of organizations and intercultural differences in multinational companies.

Nynke is a bilingual (English/Dutch) Life and career coach and was trained to coach by CoachU. She’s now living in the UK with her husband and three children. Nynke founded The Expat Coaches with Sabina, because she would have liked to have had a great coach herself when she became an expat spouse.
