The Next Step has been renamed and is now called Els Goossens. Welcome!


As to finding my true professional calling I would say that I’m a late bloomer. After finishing a master of arts’ degree in Germanic languages in my twenties, it took me well into my thirties before I discovered that personal growth was what I was truly passionate about. In 2005 I got the opportunity to start as a career coach, which was the first step in becoming a professional and independent psychotherapist and (life)coach today. In 2014 I successfully finished a 4 year postgraduate psychotherapy programme in integrative psychotherapy (recognized by the European Association of Psychotherapy –the EAP). Later that year I started with my private practice aiming at helping adults to take better care of themselves and guiding them towards a more balanced and fulfilling life.
