My name is Ingrid Bijl. I was born and raised in The Netherlands and now living in Spain. I am mother of 2 daughters and grandmother of two boys. After being divorced twice I now live a life of celibacy, sharing my life with Ingrid (Bo), with whom I organized Individual Business Retreats since 2016.
For over 20 years I have been supporting individuals, teams and organizations as a coach, counselor and consultant. Communication, personal growth and organizational development have always been my main professional focal points.
I started working as Freelance Trainer in 1998 and received education as Project Manager in 2003. In 2007 I was certified as Academic Intercultural Coach & Counselor. In 2008 I became Genuine Contact Professional and later I received a certification in Kirkpatrick Evaluation (2013) and Organizational Behavior Management (2014).
I have been working in profit and non-profit organizations in (amongst others) health, education and government. I worked in an international environment for years and I’m fluent in Dutch and English.
2019 ….. A new Page ……
A big portion of my professional practice as a coach, counselor and consultant was based on a secular, humanistic, esoteric or New Age approach. After I became a new-born Christian I realized I had to change my practice.
I understood that God wanted me to use my life experiences for His glory. I still do counseling, but now based on His Word.
I’m in the process of becoming a Certified Biblical Counselor (ACBC)
If you want to read more about how God changed my life, I invite you to read my testimony: Walking with God.
New Page Ministries
Next to my work as a Biblical Counselor I started New Page Ministries.
Through this ministry I serve God in His Church not only as a Biblical and reconciliation counselor, but also as a speaker & writer.
In my articles and presentations I share my experiences in a world and a life without God. I share with Christians what New Age thinking exactly is, how to prevent false teachings to enter in your life and your church and how to minister to spiritual seekers and New Agers.
Most of all, I share in both my articles and presentations my overwhelming joy of finding the Truth in His Word, which changed EVERY part of my life!
