Coaching, Organizational development & Workshops.

How I work

 My work is grounded in systems theory. Therefore, problems as well as possible solutions are considered within a larger framework of interactions.

 Every human being has incredible potential, which can be used in consctructive or destructive ways (towards oneself and others). I am interested in strengthening positive developments.

 Asking questions, listening and facilitating discussions are important tools of my work. And the midst of difficulties and hardship, I love to laugh with my clients!

 If needed, I work with other colleagues or recommend other professionals.
