"Share your worries,
and we'll tackle them together"

My coaching philosophy is that I truly believe that facing problems together can be rewarding, no matter the outcome.

Even when surrounded by people we tend to try and solve our problems alone.

We don't even realize that it is an option to share these worries, for they are ours and ours alone. 

Let me help you as a coach with issues such as procrastination, fear of failure, lack of confidence, work-life balance and upcoming career changes.

Coaching with Theo Hordijk in the Algarve


Theo Hordijk

It’s virtually impossible to summarize ones life in a few paragraphs, so let's try to avoid that. Here are few terms that define me in the present and let's take it from there: 


I am a hiker and I am living a sober lifestyle, I have a calm personality and a curious mind, and I love new challenges.

Answering your questions

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by, a Dutch platform for mental resilience and growth, where we delved into my work as a life coach.
What do you hope to achieve for others as a mental health professional?

I hope to help others navigate through the complexity of their emotions and fears. My goal is to give them the tools to deal with their current mental state and then work together to understand the causes of their challenges. It's not just about addressing problems, but also about learning to appreciate the journey and finding joy in the 'ordinary' daily life.

What does mental resilience mean to you?

To me, mental resilience means the ability to face the challenges and difficulties of life without being overwhelmed. It is the ability to pick yourself up after a setback and keep going. In addition, it's also about the ability to seek achievable goals here and now, even when things are tough.

What topics do you often see in your sessions?

I often see themes such as procrastination, fear of failure, lack of self-confidence, work-life balance, and upcoming career switches. Another recurring topic is the difficulty of sharing concerns and problems, which is something we can work on together.

What advice would you give to other people?

My advice would be not to hesitate to seek help if you need it. We often try to solve our problems alone, but there is power in sharing your worries. Look for small things you can do right now to improve your life, even if you're struggling with bigger problems.

What is a quote/life motto that suits you?

My motto is 'Share your worries, and we'll tackle them together'. It is actually a modern version of the old saying 'A problem shared is a problem halved' which I fully believe in. It reflects my belief in the power of collective problem-solving and shows the dedication to my clients.
