Life Coaching at Tint

Sometimes it can be a relief to talk with someone about what’s on your mind. If there is anything you’re struggling with, you’re welcome at TINT for a private conversation. It can be about anything: making choices, troubled relationships, study motivation, loss, faith, spirituality... Talking with a life coach at TINT can help you to structure your thoughts and to find your path again. Everything you share in the life coaching sessions will be kept confidentially. Feel free to contact us!


Life coaching at TINT is available and free for both Dutch and International students, PhD, PDEng and Postdocs at TU/e, Fontys Eindhoven and the Design Academy. Nevertheless, every donation is appreciated.


To sustain the work of TINT donations are welcome at: NL93TRIO0338499652 Stichting TINT eindhoven.


Have you finished your life coaching sessions at TINT, but could you use more coaching? Maybe you are not a student, but you would like to follow some coaching. Or you are looking for someone with a specific expertise? You can also find more info here about coaches outside of TINT that we endorse and/or that have worked with/for TINT in the past.


‘I felt very comfortable during life coaching. The meetings gave me insight into how I felt about myself at that moment. The peace and tranquility, with the fact that I did not feel interrupted and that I could finish, created an overview for me. It is nice to be heard sincerely, this was the feeling Margit gave me and she remained professional in the form of “remain objective”. Something in which I can develop myself is being open-minded and not judging the situation of another. If I eventually want to become a coach, I have to put this judgment aside and sit in an open conversation. It was inspiring to see Margit do this!’

'It was nice to talk with someone outside my own network. My friends usually have the tendency to give me the advice that I want to hear to comfort me. A life coach has more distance and can reflect on my problems in a sharper way. I learned a lot from this coaching.'

‘I feel like the life coaching helped me to remember things I had forgotten, especially things that made me happy. In a busy life, it is easy to lose control of what’s important or to lose things that make you feel good from within. Talking to a person about remembering the importance in my life and what path I want to follow gave some structure to my mind. We did some techniques that helped to seek happiness and direction. Those techniques definitely can be of help for the future too. Overall, I think the life coaching is a good program for students that are struggling, and gives peace to the ones that have too much on their plate. I think you do a good job and transmit peace when having a conversation.’

'Margit is a great listener, I could tell my story without any reservations. She shows empathy, so I felt it's alright to express my feelings.'

Margit van Tuijl

As I was at the age of 16 I started asking questions like: What’s the meaning of my life? Why am I here? How can I live a happy life? Because of this passion for life questions I decided to study theology and follow courses in philosophy, psychology and spiritual care in Amsterdam, Heidelberg and Leiden. Since 2007 I’ve coached many people on topics like: dealing with changes, making choices, developing relationships, facing illness and death, discovering purpose in life and finding sources of inspiration, spirituality or religion. To guide people on their life path is a great source of inspiration to me!


In 2013 I moved to Eindhoven to start working at TINT as a life coach for students. I love to help young people coming from all over the world to find their own sources of inspiration and happiness in life. So if you’re struggling with personal issues and you feel like talking about it with someone in confidence, you’re welcome to contact me. I can coach you in Dutch, English or German.


Rachelle van Andel


Hi! My name is Rachelle and I’m happy to be part of the TINT team as a life coach! One day a week you can find me at the TU/e. You are very welcome for a chat, a cup of coffee, a song, a poem, sharing ideas and, most important: for coaching. I’m passionate about social justice and sustainability. In my free time I dance, you can find me in the cinema, you can find me in a book or I’m gone for a long walk and…. sometimes I’ll come up with Dutch songs I’ll play on my guitar. So, watch out ;-). I do believe that we are all connected in a web of relationships. Fostering these relationships is important for our well-being but can be quite challenging nowadays. It’s like a dance.


I’m a skilled counselor, specialized in burn-out, study/life balance, trauma & grief and discovering your personal core values. I’m a remonstrant minister and next to my work for TINT I work as a student chaplain in Maastricht. I can coach you in Dutch or English.


I’m looking forward to meeting you!
