About Mieke

I’m Mieke Haveman, a Dutch coach/counselor specializing in online work. I’ve studied English for a few years and always had a love for the language, that is why I work internationally. This website is aimed at English speakers [and of course Dutch speakers who don’t mind an English language course]. My Dutch work is a collaboration with Debbie van den Berg and can be found here


Why marketing? 

Marketing is something I really missed when I was studying to become a coach and a counselor. I already knew I wanted my own practice and after all those years of learning I was totally unprepared for the marketing side of things. I was lucky enough to find a good coach who taught me the basics. After that I kept up the learning through books and various online courses and webinars. When I started as a tutor in how to counsel online, I found out I was not the only one ill prepared for business. Many of my students felt the same way. Especially when it came to online marketing. I started teaching more about online marketing in our classes. And I enjoy that so much that I want to help more people.



Mieke & Nina

I remember how lost I felt when I first started out online.

All that jargon flying around that I did not understand. The simplest task took me ages. It doesn’t have to be that way. With a little help you can manage your website and do your online marketing as well. Contact me to find out how I can help you get started.

My hobbies

Next to my various work online I love to relax with a good book or watch a movie. As you can see in the photo, I am a big dog lover. When I am on holiday I love to explore old castles and churches.

If you are not sure if I can help you, you are very welcome to talk to me. When people work together it is important that there is trust. I am happy to provide solutions for your problems and help you have a great start online. As I remember how hard it was for me to get started and how many hours it took me to get the knowledge I now have, I really want to share that knowledge with you. My courses and workshops are available through OLT. [online training for counsellors] They have been offering courses to counsellors for over ten years now. So please don’t hesitate to chat with me. I love to hear from you. If you would like more free tips please follow me on Facebook and Twitter.
You may ask what I have to offer you that other website builders and social media managers don’t. I can assure you that I speak your language. I am a qualified counsellor and coach. Also qualified as an online counsellor and tutor. So I know your world. I know how little marketing and websites are part of your training.

What does this mean for you?

  • I have been where you are. You know you should have a website and do something with Social Media, but you are not sure how to go about it.
  • Counselling is just not a highly paid job and you don’t have the budget to spend a fortune on getting that website and your social media. I get that.
  • Geek talk drives me crazy as well. Worse it makes me feel insecure. So I will not use it with you.
  • I will first talk with you through Skype or email about what you expect and need. So we are both sure that we are right for each other.
  • Not only will I make a website for you, I will make sure that you can add new pages and events yourself.
  • I also offer courses that will teach you how to make your own website and how to get started with Social Media.
