Guidelines for my work/my personal mindset:
My consulting/coaching style is influenced by my many years of practical experience in the financial/business worlds, as well as my education and training in a range of humanistic theories (psychology/communication). The focus of my working relationship with you is a respectful, reliable and open exchange that does not shy away from confrontation, with a clear focus on targets, and with humour spread throughout.
In my experience, I believe that coaching supports:
–Identifying of inhibitory practices
–Identifying, strengthening and competently utilising available resources
–Achieving/regaining independence/autonomy in actions and behaviour, and (further) developing authenticity

Methods and principles:

  • Detection of subconscious thinking/behavioural patterns, allowing the conscious implementation of change 
  • Development of questions relating to the observation of personal behaviour, with the aim of strengthening self-perception and opening up different courses of action 
  • Applying role play, supportive methodological/theoretical input and feedback
