Counselling, Coaching and Consultancy for grief, loss and transformations in life.


I’m Karin Enfield-de Vries,

I’m Karin Enfield-de Vries, the face and force behind Pure Transformations. I’m glad you’re here. Keep reading to find out more about me, or scroll to the sections on 1:1 Counselling, Coaching or Consultancy if you prefer.

After building my career in International Business Transformation and Organisational Change Management, I gained over twenty years experience developing people and teams. Through this work and my own lived experience of change and adversity, I recognise the need for therapeutic intervention and support. I made the switch from the corporate world to a global not-for-profit organisation supporting women who are childless not by choice and trained in grief and loss counselling.

Pure Transformations began in July 2022 and gives me the opportunity to work as a self-employed grief and loss counsellor, a wellbeing coach and a change management consultant. I offer support (online and in person) in both English and Dutch.

The name of my practice, Pure Transformations holds a special meaning for me;

Pure is linked to my name Karin, a name of Swedish origin, meaning “pure”. Transformations are a constant in our lives and change is inevitable. When we are faced with loss and need to heal from grief, we transform as human beings and we move from A to B, no matter how short or long that journey is.

"Transformation is an ongoing process that tends to appear ordinary, when, in fact, something extraordinary is taking place"

– Suzy Ross

I studied Grief and Loss Counselling at the Dutch Post-Graduate Institute ‘Land van Rouw’ and I’m qualified in systemic transition management and coaching. Central to my work are the concepts of truth and choice, and I help enable people to live the life they want, rather than the life they think they should or have somehow ended up living.

Clients have described me as honest, inspirational, insightful, caring, challenging and supportive. Grief and loss shows up everywhere in life and I work with a wide range of issues; involuntary childlessness, illness, bereavement and career or life stage issues (my own experience is that of being childless since 2012 as a consequence of Stage IIIB cervical cancer).

I’m based in Overpelt, Belgium and work with clients in person and online all over the world. My services are available in Dutch and English.
