My Approach

‘Being open and vulnerable creates the foundation for a healthy relationship.’

The Gottman Institute, a research based approach to relationships

My approach is based on three fundamental pillars: individual coaching, relationship development and mental health.

My Education

With a Masters of Science in Business Administration I started my career in marketing&sales in the FMCG business. During my first leadership position I discovered that I loved most working with people and supporting human growth. My interest in personal development had me take many different programs in a variety of countries, as we lived abroad as a family. It lead me to professional coaching in 2007 and ever since I have been a challenging reflection partner for many people and relationships, holding you accountable for living your dreams. After more than 15 years of coaching and personal and professional development I offer you an integrated and lived experience.

My Journey

Individual coaching

As a personal coach, I am committed to helping you explore and achieve your personal and professional goals. I offer a safe, encouraging environment where we can examine anything that’s currently going on in your life – good or bad. Learn more about my approach to coaching.

Peer coaching

Team coaching

As well as life, executive and team coaching, I also provide group training in leadership and team development. In a challenging, fun and dynamic way, I train executives to develop people’s leadership skills and teach coaches how to maximise team performance. Here is what I can do for you.


If you’re working overseas, how do you deal with cultural differences? How do you avoid misunderstandings that can arise? And how do you meet different expectations? A lot of cultural training doesn’t go beyond the dos and don’ts. To help people from different cultures work together effectively, I take a two-step approach. Read more.
