Other people saw me as a go-getter, marathon runner, ambitious, but in this process a whole different side of me surfaced, my vulnerable side. Underneath my perfectionism and pleasing, there is a shortage in self appreciation. From the first moment, the group felt so safe. If I would go back 12 weeks ago to the decision moment, then I would tell myself: Why are you still doubting?

I would describe myself as highly sensitive, including a sensitivity to addictive behavior. Someone with humor and also a shadow side. My hope was that my ups and downs would become more stabile. Now I can tell that this program has been the best investment I have ever made in myself. A feeling of happiness remains. This has really made me blossom. In the meanwhile I am recommending this program to everyone.

After 16 years I had resigned my job, without knowing what the future would bring. Something that for me as an “over thinker” gave me quite some uncertainty and discomfort. I gave myself a sabbatical year, but when it came it was really hard to simply enjoy it, my overthinking took over…


After a short intake call my feeling was clear. This was it. 


In the meanwhile I have so much more insight in who I am, what I need (or not), what make happy (or happier). To summarize, I’m living life so much more consciously, I overthink much less and live much more from my intuition. Their style resonated with me so much that aside from this week in Sweden I added their coaching program. Life changing.

& Sweden Canoe Retreat

As a highly sensitive person it is hard for me to take in 'space'. Throughout my life I have always put other people before myself. So when I encountered Unleashing of Potential, their concept immediately resonated. 


During both the program as well as the retreat, there was always a safe environment where anything could be spoken out loud or be listened to deeply. By pinpointing the behavior underneath the emotion, it allowed for deeper layers to be touched.

The week in Sweden was an incredible experience that put a lot for me in motion. The nature surrounds you 24/7, which had a healing and inspiring effect, and the interaction with the other participants taught me a lot about myself.

The whole process allowed me to know myself on such a deeper level.

I signed up because I wanted personal development and an adventure. It is amazing to reflect on the entire experience. One of my highlights was hiking up for sunset. Watching the colors on the snowcapped mountains with a light wind. I felt so alive and present. I ran down because I had so much energy.


One of the biggest personal insights is self kindness. There has been a voice in my head that has been very judgmental. A bully towards myself. And what I want to create in the world. This experience gave me the chance to look at that and move to a deeper level. To a kinder relation to myself. Better then a life where I let inner judgement get to me.

This coaching program has been the most beautiful gift that I could give myself. It is being brave enough to dare and to choose to go on a journey with me, myself and I.

You become deeply aware of who you are, in every aspect. You become a better version of yourself. Who does not want that?

During this process I realized that I an good enough. That I am who I am. And that I am a sensitive being. Now the time has come to show this to everyone around me.

"Sanne & Joris are (next to genuine, warm & nice people) excellent facilitators who can quickly create a warm, inviting atmosphere, where one can feel confident and empowered.
The workshop parts were diverse, surprising, with humor and I felt challenged to explore my own thoughts and comfort zone. 
Their icebreaker still baffles me: I’ve never seen a group of strangers come together in such a personal way so quickly!"

"Joris and Sanne are such incredible inspirators as workshop facilitators. The insights I gained after visiting their weekends and workshops are ones I treasure! There’s a reason I decided to fly across the globe to attend their retreat in Costa Rica and it’s these two. Sanne and Joris, the driving force that helped unleash my potential for sure!"

"I had a wonderful time during Sanne and Joris's unleashing of potential workshop. They are both really inspiring and I felt really safe in the environment they created during the workshop. They really helped me put into perspectives and visualize emotions and feeling I had to begin with but that I could not really see clearly. I also just enjoyed talking to them as they are wonderful people! I hope their aura of positivity will spread and embrace other lost or confused souls :)"

A year ago I could feel I was slowly loosing myself, despite it looked like I had everything under control. It was hard to put my thoughts in order. I could feel I was becoming less pleasant towards others.


Once we started talking about joining Nepal, I decided to add individual coaching sessions. Step by step everything became clearer. With Nepal as the absolute highlight. The physical challenge of a mountain of 5000m. A trekking towards myself. I refound myself. I felt the power of nature. Now, I trust myself again, dare to listen to my intuition and realize everything does not need to be perfect.

"If you want to find your inner creative potential and challenge your self to become a better version there is no better place to start than being with like minded people at Unleashing of Potential! It was a unique and unforgettable experience to be in their retreat. Joris and Sanne are such amazing giving souls and I learned so much about myself in such a short period of time. I can't recommend it enough!"

Attended Costa Rica Retreat

Elien Descan

"The retreat gave me the space and time to reconnect with myself, nature and life. All this was possible because of the supportive setting that Sanne and Joris created. In this safe space we were invited to go on self-exploration and really get into the present. The retreat offered an alternation between discovering, enjoying, integrating, connecting, nature, peace and action. It revolves around truly experiencing. Joris and Sanne were not only present as passionate coaches but also as authentic individuals who did not shy away from showing themselves vulnerable.

The retreat was certainly an enriching experience!"

"I would describe this weekend as time for yourself. Taking time for your true self, your inner thoughts and reflections of who you are and where you want to be in the world."

"It has brought me great comfort that there are still people left in this world that care about the individual. I got the chance to spend a full day in their wonderful, eye-opening workshops, and it was at a time, I really needed to wake up and focus on ME and MY POTENTIAL. Thank you for answering my questions, before I even asked them! It was productive, safe and a moving experience. Don't miss out on this opportunity, where you truly find yourself; UNLEASHING YOUR POTENTIAL."

Attended Connection Workshop Day

"Wonderful, genuine people, engaging in all the conversations that are going to make this world a more grounded, mindful and loving place.


Gave me many things to reflect on and the session was truly productive."

"I’ve had the pleasure to attend a full-day workshop by unleashing of potential in Amsterdam. You can tell Sanne & Joris are very experienced facilitators, with very complementary styles, bringing a good energy throughout the day. They created a safe and conducive environment in which we could take time to reflect, share experiences and purely enjoy connecting with ourselves and each other. The day sparked a light in my heart that I would wish for any one to carry with them. Go unleash your potential!"
