Gerdi with Marina Pearson on the horizon effect and the joy of being

Marina Pearson is a best-selling author and international speaker, who supports individuals and entrepreneurs to transform their stress into effortless living.

She used to work 60 hour weeks and not be able to switch off from her work which took its toll on her relationships. Especially with her son and then-husband

Eventually, Marina ditched the 60-hour workweek and moved to Spain where she runs exclusive retreats for busy mums who want to create a lifestyle that works for them.

Her work now is simple, profound and life-changing and helps her clients create the healthy balance they crave without the guilt so that they can thrive in the areas that matter to them.

About Me

Reaching your goals

My name is Gerdi Verwoert. I help busy managers and executives go from a life taken over by work to a better-balanced life with more time for themselves and the things important to them. A life in which they are the self-leader they are meant to be.

I’m a Dutch former consultant, project and facilities manager — with 20+ years of experience in the corporate and consultancy world — turned certified professional coach and mountain hiking guide while living among the Austrian Alps.

Whether working online or in person, Nature is never far away when we work together. She is my coaching partner, my co-conspirator; offering us a place to rest, regenerate, play and explore.

In my online programs, she joins us in the form of metaphors and stories that relate closely to your situation and speak directly to your unconscious self. As part of those programs, you’re encouraged to venture outside in your own surroundings and spend time with her.

When working in person, I guide you into Nature where you more easily disconnect from your busy life and reconnect with yourself.

You see, I believe that since we are all part of Nature, you can only be connected with yourself when you’re connected with Nature as well. 

  • “Every so often you meet an exceptional human being who blows your mind – Gerdi is that person. She is a high trust leader who operates from her deep commitment to her core values, builds long-term relations ships and is willing to take risks. I always look forward to our conversations as Gerdi is direct, fun, engaging, and intelligent.”
    Tara, USATara, USABusiness and Leadership Coach
  • How Gerdi wove our core values and beliefs into old values that we’ve adopted and would like to leave behind by being in nature was seamless and beautiful. My favourite part of the day was being taken into Richmond Park with Gerdi’s slow instructions as we walked and shed the old, to absorb what was coming into our experience was magic. [...] Gerdi creates the space in nature to step out of the ‘busy’ of life so we can slow down, breathe and let whatever’s been waiting in the wings for our stillness to arrive with clarity. Now I can see how being in the mountains of Austria with Gerdi is the perfect journey to shed the old clutter and step into what we want to create rather than going round and round the hamster wheel of busy. Thank you Gerdi!

  • “It takes guts to spend [time] exploring your life with Gerdi. She won’t settle for easy answers. She will shamelessly yet with a sense of humour confront you with your implicit and explicit excuses for not making the changes in life you so long to make. Yet isn’t that exactly what you want? [...] If more of the same isn’t working for you anymore, than coaching by Gerdi may be your answer. Spend some time in the mountains with her and discover what you want in life.”
