about yourself as a creative force


to train for success

I get it, it can be tough out there

Perhaps you:

  • have poken to coahes before but feel overwhelmed by all the possibilities.
  • know there is something you want to change to produce better results, better clients, better focus, better presentation skills or make a better living, but don’t know where to start
  • feel you don’t have time to work on this because regular life already feels like too much
  • Are already successful in food and design but you just want more.
  • know food and design is what makes your heart sing but you don’t know how to turn it into a profitable occupation.

but it doesn’t have to be that way

Private coaching is the best way to get personal results, fast. It's the best choice if you…

  • want a huge increase in workflow, inspiration and productivity
  • want to improve your work life balance
  • want to level up your creative skills
  • want to get expert feedback on specific projects
  • want to gain more visibility with your work
  • want to increase your income due to more creative confidence, better focus and increased communication skills.

Even though there are schools now where you can train to become a food designer,

It’s still a very new and undiscovered territory. You might not want to go to school, you might have already been to school. Whatever your personal situation is, it’s not always easy to find the right advice for your project or career.

Consulting with someone who has been there, from the beginning, building up the discipline when it was non-existent can feel like coming home. With over two decades of experience in food design, having owned two restaurants, published three books, and teaching food design, Marije has a wealth of sources to pull from. Whether you are a starter, just entering the game, or a large business wanting feedback on a project, the creative journey is a personal one. Marije knows the struggles and challenges and knows how to ask the right questions to get you to flourish.

Here’s what you can achieve in private coaching:



Struggling with procrastination is one of he main reasons why food creatives fail. It’s important to realise that behind any successful work there’s a human being with all the challenges that come with that state.

Looking at how you function behind the work can bring tremendous insights and help you to successfully perform creatively.



To stand out in the world of food and design it is important to do more than just copy what’s already there. How do you develop your creative vision? How do you give shape to the act of eating in a way that’s authentic and real?

How do you make a difference in this field? Let’s get to the bottom of artistic excellence.



When you are already making amazing work, it can feel like a dread to work on communicating your genius to the outside world. How do you practically melt and combine communication and artistic development?

Learn how to naturally power up your communication skills without extra effort and with extra returns.



Many people enthusiastically jump into the realm of food and design and slowly drown in a life of long working hours, ungrateful clients and ever lasting production without much creative satisfaction. If you read this and feel this is you, know that you are not alone.

Also know, it doesn’t have to be this way and this is the moment to turn this around for the better.



You might be working on a project and just need to get some honest, professional feedback. You might need this to convince your client of your case or you need this to feel secure about the next steps.

Wether you are a start-up, a large company or a self employed food creative, getting spot on feedback on your work is priceless.



As a mother of 3 children with an international career, balancing work and life is key to Marije’s work. What stands in the way of having a successful (fulfilling, joyful, balanced, wealthy) work life is most of the time: yourself.

You’ll get tools from meditation practice and hypnotherapy combined with mindset tools to get out of your own way and flourish.

More reasons you should book a private coaching call NOW

Is it only for food creatives?

It is made for food creatives, but if you are not a professional creative and feel this suits your needs you are welcome to book.


It will cost you less time than it will cost you to do nothing and deal with your challenges. Private coaching goes by the hour or by two half hours (on separate days) ocasionally you’ll get homework.

Do I need to show myself on zoom?

It is not mandatory to show yourself on zoom, so if you feel more safe without your camera on, that’s completely fine. However, you will notice it’s more fun to engage and communicate while showing yourself.

How do the meditation- and hypnotherapy strategies relate to eating design?

These strategies are underlying strategies that can be used as a solid base for any kind of creative profession. I believe that by nurturing your core, making sure you are able to think freely from a place of calm, powerful wellbeing you will become better at what you do. It’s like nurturing the soil. Any farmer knows that a healthy soil provides a higher yield. That’s how I see private coahing for food creatives. A healthy core will provide a better professional result.

What if these strategies don’t work for me?

If you have joined 5 coaching sessions and did the homework and see no results you will get a full refund. No problem.
