I have worked as a coach nationally and internationally, in German or in English, in person, over the telephone, or via Skype since 2002.

I draw on extensive qualifications and a wealth of experience to provide a combinative, complementary approach uniquely appropriate for you.

Ashridge Executive Education, Hult International Business School Postgraduate Diploma in Organizational Supervision, Executive Coaching & Supervision

2019 – 2021

This qualification is designed for experienced organizational development coaches, to help them build their status as senior practitioners and supervisors of coaches and consultants. This program takes a broadly humanistic relational perspective. It develops theoretical knowledge of the psychological underpinnings of supervision as well as critical evaluation of supervision models and theories. The program is a natural follow-on from the Masters in Executive Coaching and the Masters in Organizational Change.
