TAKE coaching AMSTERDAM
Career - Business - Life Coaching
Welcome! I'm Hannah Ray - a therapeutic coach offering career, business + life coaching in Amsterdam.
If you want to develop more understanding, trust and belief in yourself, so that you can explore + create your own version of success, I'm here.
I support with things like career change + development, recovering from burnout, starting or running a small business, relationships, identity, balance, and communication.
My approach is both holistic and practical - allowing space for you to move at your own pace and express yourself freely.
I hold safe + judgement-free space for you to have an honest chat, get unstuck, and get moving.
Because you want to explore some kind of transition, change, or improvement in your life.
Because you want to change careers or re-evaluate the way you do your current one.
Because you have (or want) your own business, and want support managing it in the way that's best for you.
I also offer...
Because you want to focus your mind, lower stress, or find greater fulfilment in your day-to-day.
Because you want someone to help you create a brand that reflects you + guides your success.
Because you want specific life + business coaching for being a small business owner.
Because you want to explore what's going on for you in a more integrated + body-based way.
Workshops and group or 1-1 coaching for corporate companies and creative companies.
To facilitate you being more you, & being more successful, content + healthy in your work and life because of it.
Everyone deserves space to freely explore ways of thinking, expressing and being, so that they can drop the 'shoulds' and live + work in a more enjoyable and fulfilling way.
We don't all have access to people or places where it feels safe, confidential + non-judgemental enough to do so.
My job is to hold space for you to become more familiar + trusting that everything you need is already inside you.
Our work together is about finding it, exploring it and bringing it out, so that you can unstick, create space + move.
Space To Think + Explore
Tailored Structure + Direction
When was the last time someone really gave you time + space to think deeply, process, and explore ways of and edges to your thinking? You will get lots of this from me.
The first 2hr session gets us really clear on your goals + challenges - both for yourself + our work together. What are they and why? I'm not the type of coach to offer a universal roadmap. Instead, I tailor each session to your unique situation.
Have you experienced how different it feels, how seen you feel, when someone really, deeply listens? This is space for YOU. So, I listen.
Judgement-Free Thinking Partner
It's nice when someone gives you ideas, but even more satisfying (and long lasting) when you figure out your own solutions, right? I've got a whole box of tools + exercises we can use. And I am also human with some very weird thoughts, so there is no judgement on whatever comes out of your mouth!
What is happening in the rest of your world? What shaped you? How does this affect other things in your life? We look at all the parts that are involved, and approach change in an integrated, holistic and sustainable way.
I am a qualified Life + Business Coach. My training is approved by ICF, Barefoot Coaching + University of Chester - internationally recognised as a hallmark of quality; delivered by experienced and practicing psychotherapists + coaches.
I am undertaking a 3 year therapy training with Human Givens Institute (PSA), UK.
Some theories I have been trained in, and draw on a lot in my coaching approach are: Nancy Klein's 'Time To Think' theory, Gestalt techniques, person-centred, journaling, yoga therapy, somatic/embodied exploration, neuro-linguistic programming, and CBT-informed coaching.
Additionally, I've worked as a brand strategist in the advertising industry for 10+ years, developing strategies, developing creativity and facilitating workshops.
I am also qualified as an 400hr advanced certified yoga therapist via Stretch London. I am trained by senior teachers + thought-leaders in the yoga world and an integrative counsellor. I teach at yoga studios White Door and Bluebirds in Amsterdam.
How cOULD coaching work for you?
Start trusting yourself, your opinions and your decisions more, instead of living by the 'shoulds' in your life
Explore how you approach your work so that it becomes more satisfying, you feel more confident, and can make it what you want
Make the journey to actually, properly believing in yourself and what you do. Your clients, friends, colleagues or customers will feel it too
Become more aware of how you deal with things and experiment with new ways, so that you can respond rather than react
Explore new processes and systems that make you more confident, creative and productive
Take space to figure out what's really important to you, what you value, and how your life can better align with this

“Hannah and I did 5 sessions of Life + Career Coaching. We worked on my values and goals to improve my productivity at work (at Booking.com) & focus my personal projects.
It was a great pleasure to share my ideas and thoughts with Hannah. She helped me to look at things from different angles and see things I wouldn't notice myself before.
Hannah is an attentive listener and created a very safe space for me to be honest. She prepared me some practices that made my thoughts & ideas feel easier and more structured.
After our cooperation, I will move forward with a clear vision of what I want and a loving attitude towards myself to enjoy the journey."
