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