Certified, ICF accredited Life Coach
I'm on a mission to help high achieving professionals align their life plan and goals to their truest, deepest desires.
I'm not one for wasting time, so let's see if you're in the right place first, shall we?
You've come to the right address if you..
.. want to stop questioning what you deserve and start living the life you dream of.
.. feel like you've hit a plateau and aren't sure where to go from here.
.. want to stop hiding away your potential and start accepting your worth.
.. have been working crazy hours, yet not seeing the recognition or reward for any of it.
.. are out of place and disconnected from the outside world completely.
.. are ready to stop wondering "What if?" and to unlock the door to your inevitable success.
.. you crave personal 𝐠𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐭𝐡, but have given into following the beaten path, which doesn't feel right for you at all.
If you can relate to any of these statements, I hear you! And you're in luck, because this is exactly what I help my clients with.
So how did I get here?
I was well on my way with setting a solid foundation to become a Strategic Account Manager when it hit me. I had never felt so unhappy in my entire life/this wasn't what I dreamed of at all.
I had given into following the beaten path and climbing up the linear corporate ladder. I had let my judgement on my personal desires be clouded by outside influences, a result from dating in the workplace.
When things ended and I was thinking for myself again, I felt disconnected, ashamed and alone. I had lost sight of what was important for me to focus on, and what I needed, and I saw no way out!
Unsure of what I really wanted, I felt like I was slowly suffocating. When lockdown 1.0 was introduced in the UK, I felt relieved.. The time away from the office environment turned out to be exactly what I needed, a welcome break from the predicament I found myself in.
I started exploring my options. Interior Design at first, which I quickly decided wasn't for me! I then came across coaching and mentoring, and something about it just felt right. I had been mentoring a few women in my organisation and realised it was giving me so much energy that I had to explore it.
My first investment was a disaster. Waaay to theoretical, not for me. But then.. I found the perfect course and from there on out, I knew for sure that coaching was my calling.
I can help you (re)align to your personal desires, so that you never (again) have to wonder whether you're on the right path and can start living life in full flow.
Working together, we can work on:
- Re-assessing your alignment to your true desires.

- Transforming your future potential and creating a compelling vision.
- Re-igniting your passion and connecting you to your purpose.

What My Clients Are Saying
I have been coached by Kiona for the past year now and have found it a very valuable experience. Not only can we talk about specific career and sales related topics but also about very personal challenges.
For me, speaking with Kiona means releasing in a safe space. I highly appreciate her stimulating questions and positive outlook during our conversations. More than that, Kiona’s continuous encouragement and support were certainly also a crucial factor for my recent promotion!
Gabriela W, London, UK
I am Kiona van Griensven, born and raised in the Netherlands, Londoner since 2015.
I'm 32 years old and have spent over 13 years working in an office. Granted, the last 1,5 years or so have been in a home office, but hey, still an office right? ;)
7 out of those 13 years I spent in 's-Hertogenbosch, the other 6 in London. And let me tell you, I've experienced the good, the great, the bad and the ugly!
(to be honest, I felt like I had gone back in time by 10 years when I arrived in London! Happy to talk more about my point of view on that if you're interested, but let's focus on the facts here first!)
Due to some health issues, my studying plans didn't go exactly as planned and I ended up working full-time from the age of 18. Knowing I had to find a way to get a degree, I decided to take on studying on Saturdays and Mondays. It wasn't easy, but within those first 6 years in the Netherlands I managed to acquire certification for HBO Project Management and I graduated for MBO Event Management through part-time studies. On top of that, I was also promoted to manage a team of two.
Eventually I got bored and started asking myself if this was all there was to life? Quickly realising that this couldn't be the case I decided it was time for a change - A BIG ONE!
I moved to London and started back at the bottom of the corporate ladder, worked my a** off in two different organisation, 6 different roles, loved most of it, until... You guessed it, I got bored again and started questioning whether there was more to life.
With the introduction of Coaching into my life, I've been able to learn why I've been feeling these emotions and how to manage my thoughts, follow my intuition and choose my own path, independent of what anyone else does or thinks of it.
And now, I'm helping others do the same!
