Are you in a life transition, or considering making changes to enjoy a more fulfilling life?

The journey towards a more meaningful life can be overwhelming. You might be daunted by the possibility of making mistakes, concerned with what others will think of you, feel numb and isolated, or you might have no idea where to start.

I feel you! I’ve been through quite a few transitions myself, and every single one of them helped me to live a life that’s more aligned with what’s true and meaningful for me. But that doesn’t mean it was easy.

I’ve learned from experience that while going through big transitions alone can be scary, having a coach to guide you on the journey makes it a rich and energizing experience.

I’d love to guide you on the journey to a more fulfilling life!


What I can help you with

The coaching journey is different for everyone, and I invite you to do a free discovery session with me to see what your journey could look like. Typically, a coaching engagement lasts 3-6 months during which we can:

  • Gain clarity on what a fulfilling life looks like for you
  • Empower you to achieve your short and long-term goals
  • Leverage your values, strengths and leadership style
  • Boost your confidence and break free from limiting beliefs
  • Build skills and mindsets to thrive in times of transition and challenge

Walking coaching

I hike in California’s beautiful hills every weekend, because being in nature helps me to relax and open up. Sounds like the ideal state for a coaching session? It is! If you have a subject that you’d like some deep coaching on, let’s go for a ~2 hour walk in nature together!

If you would like to work with me but don’t have the funds to pay the full price, or if you would like to work with me in a different way than described here, feel free to contact me and we can explore how we can best collaborate!

About me

Coaching has always been part of my professional life, both in group settings and individuals. In the past 10 years, I’ve coached many consultants and researchers, as well as startup teams and students.

I’m trainedarjanna van der plas pic as a co-active coach by CTI, the largest in-person coach training school in the world. Moreover, I’m a yoga and meditation teacher (Yoga Tree, RYT200), which inspires me to incorporate mindfulness and somatic exercises in my coaching practice.
I intentionally combine my work as a coach with social impact related projects with among others OpenIDEO and Stories Behind The Fog so that my coaching is grounded in practical experience.


What others say about me

Arjanna is incredibly present, intelligent, intuitive, warmhearted and passionate.
She provides a safe, nonjudgemental and compassionate environment to work through every kind of life challenge. With Arjanna’s guidance, I was able to drill down to the very core of a challenging work-related issue. The session didn’t only provide great tools for immediate implementation, it also gave me a new way of looking at things, a new framework with which I am now able to make wiser choices in many areas of my life – N.H.


My coaching sessions with Arjanna were open and frank conversations, based on mutual trust. She helped me analyze and solve my personal challenges with practical solutions. As a result, I’ve regained focus and confidence in my everyday life. – M.D.


Arjanna is a stupendous coach who has a deep understanding of the culture, strengths and challenges of her clients. Her holistic and strategic questions are really supportive when facing life-changing decisions and her professionalism and skill set will bring you confidence and results. – D.G.
