I am Eva, founder of Eva Authentic Living, a holistic international coaching and consultancy practice.
I am interested in diversity, female leadership and vitality and I help both companies as female leaders. I guide them to become authentic and create a purposeful life and career.
In the past 5 years I have specialized in guiding 1-1 female business leaders and managers to take care of themselves and help them focus on what they find important in their lives to embody an authentic leadership style to inspire others to do the same.
Our business world is in a crisis, our society is in a crisis. Currently 1.200.000 people are suffering from burn-out complaints and it has an epidemic form. With my experience I wish to reduce that number by changing our mindset and connect again with ourselves and create a life from within. To become really authentic and unhook ourselves from praise and acceptance of others. When trust is our fundament instead of fear we see abundance and collaboration. That is a fundamental shift in ourselves and from that we can change a deep rooted narrative based on fear that does not work anymore as more and more people are getting sick and wish to run away from the current systems.
It is time for change and that's why I wish to bring my experience, knowledge, skills and qualities to this current challenge: To create authentic wellbeing through female business leaders to change the world and specifically the workplace where people are being invited to be authentic and are not pushed to over perform to prove that they are good enough.
I work from a holistic body-mind alignment to create deep transformation and awareness. I have translated this holistic approach into my following specialities
- Authentic Leadership Coaching for female leaders
- Burn-out and stress prevention and recovery coaching
- Authentic career path design

What has led me to to do this work? My personal story...
During several moments in my life I felt challenged and needed to step our of my comfort zone. I have lived and worked abroad in my twenties. I faced a burn-out after my first child in my thirties and when I was 39, I was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer. These life events have been the most powerful learning experiences that invited me to reevaluate my life and go to the core and essence of myself and build up my life from a different base. A base of trust instead of fear.
The burn-out in 2010 was an invitation to transform my attitude and shift to another way of thinking, feeling and being. To shift to a place where I resonate with my body. To be able to heal from burn-out, I followed the three year training of becoming a Rebalancing Bodywork Therapist to create a more heart-centered and authentic life and career. For me the skills and knowledge I learned during this training, have helped me to hold space in my work for my clients and for the most challenging event during my life so far: my journey through cancer in 2015.
April 2015, I started my journey in healing from cancer. I experienced deeply how everything that I learned so far in my profession as a Coach and Rebalancer helped me to navigate from fear to trust.
Cancer is an incredible learning experience as I felt that it gave me the opportunity to go beyond everything that I was living.
I was aligned with my body and this experience invited me to connect with my soul. I was able to enhance my skills, qualities and experience in this journey and I healed from it until today. The journey through cancer gave me the inner strength and resilience to be able to deal with the uncertainty that life is offering us every day again.
This experience has helped me realize that my ultimate contribution is to guide ambitious, high achieving women who are putting themselves at risk by overworking themselves and show them a different way of approaching things. To enjoy life, to focus on what is really important for them.
cancer has taught me one big lesson and that is that there is one certainty: We will all die once, hoe we live our life and what we do with it is our choice. Let's make it a conscious one.
Life is there to be lived in all it's colours and shades and we decide how we react upon it. With fear or trust.
