Harmen van Dijk


I believe that in life we have countless opportunities to grow and realise our life purpose.


Professional Certified Coach – International Coaching Federation and founder of Dreamtree Coaching, Firemakers and RawMenTrails.

Specialist in:

As a coach I offer life-coaching and personal leadership development to executives and professionals in business and government as well as to management teams. Online and off line. I facilitate transformational processes including when necessary and opportune individual trauma release. I have extensive experience in facilitating open dialogues and masculine leadership development. I am a certified Human Potential Coach and support my clients – both individuals, and teams organisations with realising their fullest potential. I am co-facilitating the upcoming ‘Full Potentia’l Team Trainings and co-facilitate trainings on coaching skills as a leading member of the Being At Full Potential coaching network.


After 13 years of serving the Dutch Government as a diplomat in The Hague, Brussels, Geneva, New York, Bolivia and Berlin, I realised I had sufficiently lived my dream. It was time for a next step and a new dream. I took a ‘sabbatical year’, moved back to Holland, completed the MMS Worldwide Institute Coach Training in 2014 and founded Dreamtree Coaching in early 2015. As a coach I have had the opportunity to support numerous individual clients and teams in the profit and non-profit sector in Self-Leadership, living their purpose and unleashing their Human Potential. I do this mostly by taking clients into nature, for individual sessions, tailor-made Team trails and Raw Men Trails – leadership trails for men into nature.

My approach:

Nature and people are my passion. I live and work outside whenever possible. Since 2014 I have been taking men and women on a journey into nature and by that on a journey to themselves. I believe nature provides us with many opportunities for personal leadership development. Becoming aware of the pure magic in nature and honoring natural transitions such as the changing of seasons brings us back to our essence and opens doors for transformational growth.

Apart from that I am a proud husband and father of two daughters, a firm believer in synchronicity as well as the power of vulnerability. By stretching my comfort zone on a daily basis I strive for mutual growth and a new way of connecting with myself, others and the planet. I am a lover of nature, adventure, travelling new and uncharted places, music and singing and am continuously open to be amazed by life.

Looking forward to meeting you!
