About Christie Linley

I am Christie Linley Jonge Poerink, founder of Christie Linley, practice for life coaching in Amsterdam. I am a mother of two sons, a sister to four siblings, a daughter, a friend, an International and a cross cultural coach. As an internationally qualified NLP Life and Health coach, I am very fortunate and privileged because I live my passion. I believe that we all have the right to know and learn how to achieve fulfillment and happiness in our lives and careers. Get well. Be well. Live well.


Understanding the importance of going within and developing a relationship with our intrinsic self is the key to finding our element, comprehending our narrative and walking our own path in life. It is Christie Linley’s mission to create a safe, inspiring, sounding board for you to reach such an understanding, and help you find your inner resources and own truths to joyfully live the life that feels right for you.

The inspiration you seek is already within you. Be silent and listen.  Rumi


Christie Linley takes a holistic approach aligning and harmonizing our three minds the thinking, somatic, and field mind. In other words connecting your inner and outer world to create a harmonious single whole. We believe that there are different ways of achieving this: each individual needs his or her unique approach and attention. There can be no growth if we do not remain open and vulnerable to what is new and different.

Perhaps the art of harvesting the secret riches of our lives is best achieved when we place profound trust in the act of beginning.  John O’Donohue


To give you a more personal feel for our coaching, we offer you a free 30 minutes intake session. During this session we can become better acquainted and you will be able to ask any questions you might have. Should you decide that you would like to move forward with us, we will make a proposal and set up a contract. Using a blend of methodologies drawing from NLP, guided journeys, mindfulness, time-line, hypnotherapy and life coaching, your sessions will be highly personalized and experiential. It is all about creating awareness how you do what you do. Typically, depending on the nature of your challenge and goal, a coaching trajectory involves weekly sessions of 90-120 minutes for a period of 5-9 weeks.

As you start to walk on the way, the way appears.  Rumi

I have been interested in people for as long as I can remember. People, and particularly people with backgrounds different to mine, have always intrigued and inspired me. I have always been driven to know them, to share and exchange experiences with them, and to connect and embrace our differences.

Over the years, I developed a talent for listening and helping people resolve their challenges and explore their possibilities. I know that this was further reinforced by the fact that I have lived a roaming, multi-cultural life that has been played out in five countries on three continents, in seven schools and in three languages. This way I can coach people from Amsterdam to New York and from Brasil to Rotterdam.

In my early forties I decided to fully pursue my passion and became a certified internationally accredited life coach and health coach. Grateful for this marvellous opportunity, I now work with individuals and groups of young adults. I am strongly motivated by the belief that there is tremendous potential in every human being.

I am a member of three associations regarding personal development and growth. Gezond Denken & Doen ( Healthy Thinking and Doing ), a center for knowledge regarding health, wellness and vitality issues for professionals working in this field. NVNLP, association for NLP, stimulation the exchange of knowledge and experience. ETIMY, the platform for coaching in the Netherlands.


I am a certified NLP practitioner, master practitioner, master coach and health coach in accordance with the criteria of the NVNLP (Nederlandse Vereniging NLP), VIV (Vereniging Integrale Vitaliteitskunde), ABNLP (The American Board of Neuro-linguistic Programming) internationally recognized.
Christie Linley is affiliated with NVNLP and NOBCO.
