"My clients contact me with quite different concerns: e.g. in an emotional crisis, to promote their professional development, to work on a relationship or for general consultation and reflection. Normally, we first get an orientation on the current situation and the objectives and then we work step by step. In this process, the strengthening of personal resources and the development of concrete problem solutions go hand in hand. After the motto: "There is no elevator to happiness – you have to use the staircase" (Nossrat Peseschkian). In other settings, I advice executives and teams in change processes and conflicts, and I train therapists and coaches in different countries."
