Experiences and Learnings

I have studied and learned a lot – the pile of diplomas and certificates has grown to a respectable size.

What characterizes my current work in the field of organizational consulting, supervision and coaching most strongly is, on the one hand, my longstanding occupation with the Integrative Method according to Petzold/Orth, which provides a scientific and humanistic framework for therapy, consulting and supervision. On the other hand, it is the innumerable experiences of the past years, which, reflected and worked on, contribute to an ongoing learning process and give me a solid basis.
