Gijs Leeksma is relationship expert and the founder of WHMS, because that career as a professional soccer player was unfortunately only in his dreams. Born in Heemstede and grown up in the capital. In the meantime, he has gained a lot of insight into relationships, how it can be done and how it should not be done. Hel also finsihed his training as datingcoach.  

"I have quite some experience yes. But I look back on every relationship with a smile. Love is so nice, whether it is short or long duration. Ultimately, we strive for that long happy relationship, but for that you have to have that perfect match. Not the perfect person but the perfect match.

At one point I realized that this was not easy, because I had too high demands or often let myself be carried away again is simple love at first sight. This was the reason why I started reading a lot and talking to people about why people fit together and why not. A world opened up to me and I knew immediately that I wanted to do more with it. I started doing a dating coach study and together with our WHMS psychologists we created our own matchmaking theory.

This is how WHMS personal matching came about. Nothing is more beautiful than love and it is very nice to be able to realize this for others by means of this concept ".

What I love: Chocolate, Ajax, Spain, whiskey, my fish Harry and Sally, the song 'Diep in mijn hart' from Tante Leen and Christmas

Her background in advertising has taught her a lot about the human psyche. Experience expert in the field of relationships, followed various courses in dating coaching & relationship psychology.

“Love is beautiful. Not always easy, certainly not obvious, but if you find it it is so special. In my relationships I have had very nice experiences, but just as many disappointments. After my first meeting with Gijs, I started to delve into the dynamics of relationships. That was a very eye-opening. And I immediately felt a huge motivation to pass this knowledge on to others. I am now a bookcase richer, I've completed two courses and acquired a wealth of knowledge. And a strong urge to show others that that relationship is really there! ”

Zayra 2Zayra Muller

Zayra Muller is coach en ervaringsdeskundige op het gebied van persoonlijke en professionele ontwikkeling. Haar brandstof voor positieve energie is om de drijfveren van de mens te onderzoeken en te ontdekken wat jou als persoon echt beweegt.

"The verb 'connecting' is central in my life. Matching people in love but also in my work as a coach: connecting body and mind.

The Royal Wedding by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex was a historic moment because history was written. Not just for the bi-cultural gathering but especially for the ode to romantic love. I was particularly touched by the impressive speech by Bishop Michael Curry, who spoke about the fiery and passionate power of love. Words that make love and the world more beautiful for me. This ceremony made my romantic heart beat extra hard and made me realize again that love is the highest good. My interest and enthusiasm were strengthened after this moment and so I came in contact with Gijs a year later.

I love to have nice conversations with (diverse) people, looking for the unknown and similarities that always seem to be there. It is precisely the similarities that binds people. By listening carefully and by asking you come together to the most beautiful discoveries.

My approach as a coach is motivating, empathetic and positive with an open mind. As a Master coach I have gained in-depth knowledge from various courses and I use NLP, systemic work and attention training, among other things. More information about my method: www.zayramuller.nl."

What i love: my feet in the sand, the sunrise and sunset, a beach walk, cooking, evening parties, dancing, Ah from George Michael and traveling for inspiration and reflection.

Titia Roovers

Titia is sinds 2004 eigenaar van een goedlopende psychologenpraktijk. (www.sterktrainingencoaching.nlZij begeleidt ambitieuze dertigers om een stevige en eerlijke relatie met zichzelf en met anderen aan te gaan. Zij is nog net voor haar veertigste getrouwd met Niels en is moeder van Louisa en Philip en stiefzoon Nika.

Titia is sinds de oprichting van WHMS op de achtergrond betrokken als psycholoog voor cliënten van WHMS die hun patronen in de liefde willen kennen.

“Toen Gijs mij vroeg mijn kennis van de psychologie van liefde en relaties in te zetten voor zijn missie om leuke mensen samen te brengen vond ik dat direct een goed idee! Ik weet zelf uit ervaring hoe een verlangen naar liefde zo groot kan zijn dat je het soms bijna liever niet voelt. Ik ken de weerstand om na elke date die ‘mislukte’ weer monter opnieuw een ontmoeting aan te gaan. Na veel vallen en opstaan ervaar ik de liefde nu als verbindend maar ook bevrijdend, vooral omdat ik steviger op m’n eigen poten sta dan ooit. Je bent welkom om jouw patronen rondom de liefde te onderzoeken. Hoe meer je kunt ontspannen in jezelf doordat je weet wie je bent, hoe makkelijker je een ander kunt toelaten. Ontdek wat belangrijk is voor jou in een relatie. Bewaak jij jouw autonomie of is loyaliteit juist van belang voor jou? Ben je bereid de moed op te brengen om tijdens het daten naast je kracht ook je kwetsbaarheid te tonen? Ik spreek je er graag over!”

What I love: the smell of the canals (a bit dirty but still nice), my daughter who imitates an adult, Ronald Goedemondt, dancing to a good beat.
