Who am I?

Who am I?

I’m still trying to find the lasting answer to that question, the great ‘Who am I?’ 😉
But my name is Petra Helbers, born in Rotterdam, Holland in 1965.
I now live in Lunteren, together with my coach dog Jet.
We’ve been coaching together since 2020.
Before that, I was a teacher (special needs), teaching kids with physical challenges, learning problems and behavioral issues.
And before that, a lot of other jobs (see below for a summary) like social work.

I wrote a bestselling children’s book about being yourself, keeping your own colour: ‘Hoe Geel weer geel werd’.
It is about to be published in hard cover again and also in English “How Yellow became yellow again”.
