Professional, personal & warm ♡
Hello, I'm Lindsy. Thank you for being here.
I would love to help and support you, individually/as a couple/as a family, through the loss of your child. Through the struggle, the grief, the pain and the trauma. This is my mission.♡
Your loss matters, your child matters, you matter. Feel seen, heard and validated. You don't have to do this alone....not anymore. I am here for you. ♡ We can do this together.
It's my mission to lovingly
help and support you.
My experience in service of others
People see me as a mom to one child, my firstborn. After my firstborn, I was pregnant multiple times and, very sadly, experienced multiple child losses. This changed me profoundly.
For a long time I tried to be strong and I pushed the feelings of grief and sadness away. Until I couldn't anymore and I was caught up by grief.
In my search for emotional healing I found methods that helped me to integrate my losses, to weave them into my life. These brought me the peace and connection I needed. And then this helped me to be there, functioning in a better way for myself and also for my firstborn and for my partner. They experienced the same losses, in a different way then I had, but they lost too.
From the very first time I experienced loss and felt the indescribable emotional pain, something new emerged. A deep desire within me to help others with the same difficult, complicated emotions. I immersed myself professionally in the methods that brought powerful results in a short time. This is my specialisation.
Now I'm grateful and honoured that I get to help and support parents through the grief and the trauma. A cause that's very close to my heart. From all I have learned and experienced I bring with me a deep understanding in my coaching, in a way that is professional, personal and warm. I am here for you. ♡
I bring with me
a deep understanding.

My background in coaching, guidance & support
My experience in coaching, guidance, support and mentoring goes back for over more than 20 years. As a student I started with voluntary work, providing coaching and guidance to kids from primary to secondary school. Later in my work in education I was a coach to adolescents and a trainer to teacher-trainees. Besides that, I did various and continuous coaching work during the years, with different voluntary organisations. These concerned supporting people in informal care, mental health care, exchange students and host families.
I've always known I want to help people. At a very young age I knew I wanted to be a medical doctor specialised in working with pregnant people and infants. And being a psychologist had my interest as well. Sometimes you plan things and then life happens.
Close to me
If you'd ask people very close to me what my best characteristics are (and I really did ask them), they would say I'm loving, caring, steadfast and trustworthy.
Tu me manques... tu manques à moi
You are the part of me that is missing.
