Fenneke Tjallingii-Brocken North Vancouver, British Columbia
Career Coach, Health and Fitness Coach, Spirituality Coach
I coach spirited professionals who want to bring more significance to their world and want to feel confident and calm because they live their purpose.
Is life currently too busy and do you feel not satisfied by it? Does your body ache, your mind race on, you don’t eat as healthy as you would like? Do you want to be more YOU, but you don’t know how? Are you disappointed in and secretly mad at yourself that you want to make a profound impact in the world and yet with all your outer success you haven’t been able to create it?
You can live a joyful and fulfilled life but you don’t make yourself and your unique gift a priority. Not listening to your body, mind and soul depletes you, and withholds you from doing what you truly want.
With my Be and Become approach, we start by raising awareness around your habits and beliefs. You’ll learn to be mindful and tune in with your body, mind and soul. We raise curiosity for your true desires and purpose and bring these into creation. You’ll learn to prioritize and overcome roadblocks. We’ll balance being and doing and let you really come alive! All along, I guide you with care and commitment, so you feel safe and inspired to become the best you.
Clients tell me that after working with me, they feel a vitality to move forward in life with strength, joy and serenity. They’ve learned to trust their body, mind and soul’s capacities. They can balance life and focus on making a valuable impact in the world while maintaining vibrancy. Seeing their significance in the world fulfills them.
I’m a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach. I’ve been coaching people around the world for 2 years, and I'm a KRI certified Kundalini Yoga teacher. I draw from 16 years of yoga and meditation experience, and hold a Masters in Marine Biology. I love working with dedicated people like you as your growth stimulates me to keep improving myself so you get the best of me. I offer a free consult. Contact me to see if we are a fit.

Fenneke helped me push through the fear, reconnect to my inner strength and achieve my goal. I have gained greater confidence and trust in myself. My new motto is: I can do it!SR, Certified Life Coach, St. Louis, Missouri
Fenneke helped me connect to my breathing. Using her tricks and methods I was able to relax myself and alleviate fear. She helped me focus and maintain calm in difficult scenarios. With her help and utilising her strategies, I confidently navigated through a telephone interview with a large corporation, netting me a job in Austria with Cirque de Soleil. They saw my potential as I calmly spoke with them, providing sufficient examples and answers to unique PR questions. I look forward to now seeing the world with this uplifting relaxed persona. I will use her advice in the future so I can showcase my skills. I would use Fenneke again in the future and encourage people to seek her relaxed, educated insight. Thanks for your help Fenneke.Nicholas Chalecki, Carpenter foreman, Vancouver
Fenneke is genuine and cares about her clients. We worked on my personal and professional motivation. I have realized two ideas that I have thought of for a long time and they were more of a dream than a real plan. She helped me to remember my strengths, she didn't judge me. Thank you Fenneke.IU, professional certified coach, U.S.A
Fenneke always helped me believe in me when I failed to do so myself. She not only spoke the words; they were sincere and heart felt. She was gentle when I needed comfort and support, direct when I needed to become aware of my patterns. Coaching helped me in a way I had never imagined to be possible.Diane Xuereb, Success Coach
Perfectionism didn’t help me to cover up my feelings of unworthiness and shame. Although I did a lot to become a more balanced person with better self-esteem, I have remained anxious and a “driven” self-damaging perfectionist. My system was stuck in reverse and I just couldn’t stop - until a few months ago. Since the starting of the sessions with the warm- hearted Fenneke as my coach, my self-insights have deepened and it’s changing me. Fenneke offered me several healing tools and ways to help myself.
The best part for me was how much more focused I’m feeling after being able to calm myself down more successfully when feeling lost and distressed. Now, I feel greater objectivity and self-awareness. I don’t take other people’s emotions and moods so personal anymore. I don’t feel so overwhelmed by the number of things I “should” be doing. Sometimes I realize I just don’t want to do a thing. I notice when I’m getting lost and insecure, but I don’t bawl myself out so often. I’m feeling more who I am, and have fewer downs. It seems there’s always something I can do to help myself feel better. And I don’t have to accomplish some worthy task outside of myself to do it! Fenneke has such patience and her warmth is absolutely overwhelming. She spoke to me on Skype from Canada, where she lives, and she made the sun come out in my home here in Austria.Carol Streefkerk, Artist, Gymnastics and Horse Trainer, Austria
I was struggling with indecision and unhappy in a few areas of my life. I was casting about for solutions, but generally just spinning my wheels, making little to no progress for months. I did not know if the investment in working with a coach could be worth it for me, but I was curious and motivated to change. From our first connection, Fenneke provided needed support and perspective, so I decided I had to give it a try. I was provoked into more resourceful states by her caring engagement, consistent creativity and playful energy. Once I started to see things in a novel way, I was better able to make progress. Old thoughts and patterns were called out, questioned and invigorated with new options for living my life; I am still benefiting from sessions we had weeks ago. She met me where I was and, with patient assistance and validation, helped move me closer to where I wanted to be.
I now know that to work with Fenneke, is to invoke a powerful synergy that would be impossible to create by myself and that is well worth the investment of my time, energy and money.Tiffany K. Vancouver, BC
I was struggling with a number of issues – the death of my father, challenges at work and my physical health and was having a hard time shifting my attitude and feeling happiness as I once had. I worked with Fenneke for a six month period and it has shifted my thinking and I am happier than I have been for a long time. I wasn’t expecting to make this much progress and I am so happy Fenneke came into my life because it was through regular coaching sessions that I have found myself again. I have learned a lot about myself but also a number of tools and ways for me to live life with more mindfulness. More “being” and less “doing” have allowed me to enjoy the simple moments and understand what is truly important. I am in a great place and I highly recommend Fenneke as a coach.Anne, COO, North Vancouver
You are an amazing life coach! I liked your stepwise approach and your patience. Your positivity and choice of words made me more receptive and encouraged me to work on challenges more easily. The genuine way you cared is appreciated.NK, Pharmacist, North Vancouver
In the three months that we worked together, I had so much fun being guided by her creative exercises, soothing voice and homework. I found myself laughing and being open and feeling playful while navigating through some pretty serious life changes. Fenneke intuitively knew when to step up as a handrail, when to just sit back and be a soft place to land (listening empathically) and when to be the voice to shoo out negative thought patterns and archetypes that had been sabotaging flow and keeping me stuck.
Fenneke modelled healthy ways of setting boundaries and clearly articulating needs, while always exuding warmth and compassion. I really felt 'seen' and heard by her on a deep level.
She helped me clear blocks and continue moving forward with strength, joy and serenity.Tina, Truth Seeker and Speaker, Los Angeles & Vancouver
Having experienced Fenneke's yoga and meditation practice I felt comfortable having her coach me. Fenneke's coaching helped me transition through a very hard time in my life coming to terms with grief, parenting a child with special needs, moving country and redefining my priorities in life. I will be forever grateful.Sheena, mother of two high-needs kids and biomedical physiologist, North Vancouver
Working with Fenneke as my co-active coach, has brought me closer to my Self. She has given me tools and insight that helps me find my balance in everyday life. She has helped me see the true beauty of my being. I am forever grateful for this gift.Riekje Steinman - Tjallingii, Primary school teacher and creativity coach, Driel, The Netherlands
