About BuitengewoonZIJN
I'm Joeban Machiel Bergs Berning (1976) and I am a breakthrough coach. Since 2007 I do this as self-employed under the name; BuitengewoonZIJN, which means being extraordinary.

My vision:
"You are the best in, being you. Your highest good and talent will fully flourish in an extraordinary

I remember when I was a young kid I lived my life without any problems. Problems just did not exist. Then suddenly I had t
hem. And a lot. The older I got, the more serious the problems appeared. It took me some years of training to recreate living my life without problems. If I could back then, why not now?
I discovered that there are no problems in life. I mean that quite literally. But "there are no problems in life" doesn't mean that there are no problems for human beings. This distinction made me curious of how we as human beings create life it self. Later in my life I realized that I could break through the routine of life, could break through the time-is-money sense. I realized: I AM FREE! What does it mean to be free? Free to choose, free to be myself, free to create a life worth living it!

To give the above discovery some direction, I started a training at Landmark Education in 2002, this was also the start of my coaching curriculum. There I completed all Core Programs, Communication and the Leaders Program. In 2006 I started the almost two-year Life and Personal Performance Coaching course at the Coaching Academy in London. Completed with a diploma and an accreditation from the ICF (International Coaching Federation), as well as an NLP Master Practitioner certification.
In the meantime, I had to work and I did that as a photographer and creative director at a renowned advertising agency. Other experiences I have gained as a Head Coach at an advanced training agency, where I was at the heart of the development of new courses and also had the opportunity to deliver them to large groups of people, the many training courses and workshops that I have gone through, as well as in my sport as a mountaineer, make that I'm an expert in empowering people.

Since the foundation of BuitengewoonZIJN, thousands of people have participated and increased their extraordinary capacities. Including my work for other training agencies, I have had the extraordinary privilege to work and interact with more than ten thousand people.
