As Empathy Coach and Facilitator I work with individuals, groups and organizations on transformational change, from judgmental thinking and behavior into a creative and empathic awareness that fosters more human and collaborative relationships with ourselves, others and the wider social environment

The work is based on the Nonviolent Communication process, Restorative Circles and Mindfulness.

I have been running NVC based activities (workshops, coaching, mediation) in both the personal and the work place since 2006. My clients very much appreciate the environment of trust that I create, which enables them to work deeply on their personal or organizational transformation. 

I have experience with clients from a multitude of cultures and social backgrounds. He coaches in English, Dutch and Italian, both face-to-face and by telephone/Skype.
