As a gifted adult, my excessive curiosity and drive to learn have led me into different professional fields and studies, including a Master’s Degree in International Journalism and two decades of working as a journalist and with international aid agencies in conflict and complex emergencies.
When my son was born, life called for something else. Soon it became clear that he is differently wired and a hard journey of finding support, and advocating and dealing with the school environment began. But synchronously, like a seed that had waited to grow, my own multi-exceptionality finally found space to emerge, be validated and nurtured.
My heartfelt passion now is to accompany and support others who are on that journey too. I embark on my second career with a formal education in crisis- and executive coaching and extensive training as a coach and giftedness assessor with InterGifted.
I offer a trauma-informed base in psychology and I am in the process of becoming a certified Roots Cause Therapist, a trauma healing method that uses regression and progression practices which allow the completion of unprocessed emotions. Additionally, I am training in Internal Family Systems, Energy Psychology and herbalism.
I am currently not offering therapy, but all my coaching offerings are informed by the trainings and mentoring I have received.
My work is based on the holistic model of giftedness developed by InterGifted's founder Jennifer Harvey Sallin, which you can learn more about here.
I currently live in Switzerland, near Zurich. My interests are nature and herbalism, my multi-exceptional family and our animals.
