“That is what learning is…you suddenly understand something you have understood all your life, but in
a new way�
Doris Lessing


I combine the disciplines of psychology and organizational behavior with my personal experience and beliefs about learning and coaching to bring
fresh perspectives and make new actions possible to my clients.

The goal in coaching is to encourage clients to make the best use of their expertise, to understand different facets of the context, and expand the
limitations imposed by their definitions, perceptions and beliefs about themselves and their environment.
