Jeroen Zweerts (1969) owns the agency ‘Word wie je bent’, and as a freelancer affiliated with ‘De Vertrouwenspersoon’.
Jeroen has been trained as an external confidant by the office of ‘De vertrouwenspersoon’ for undesirable behaviour. After completing the course, he is now affiliated with and certified by the National Association of Confidential Advisors (LVvV).
Based on his HR background, Jeroen is regularly deployed to improve sustainable employability and job satisfaction within profit and non-profit organisations. This experience fits in well with his work as an external confidant.
As a trainer/teacher, Jeroen has been a member of the knowledge centre and training institution “Hoog gevoelig heel gewoon” (“Highly sensitive, very common”) since 2016. This institute helps education and healthcare professionals to recognise and acknowledge high-sensitivity and to utilise it as a quality.
In addition, Jeroen has had his own practice as a haptotherapist in Zwolle since 2004. He offers people a personal learning trajectory from a haptonomic approach. Life and career issues can be discussed here. In addition, he guides people in dealing with radical changes and he provides workshops and training courses to help people become more balanced. His guidance is aimed at getting people to know themselves better and making choices that suit them. In other words: give space to what is natural. Committed, empathetic, good listener and patient are words that describe him.
