‘Spend time contemplating who you want to be. The mere process of contemplating who you want to be, begins to change your brain’
the power of working in a group
Working with a group can be a powerful experience. The dynamics are different to coaching in the sense that there is more time to process new awareness and the energy of the group plays a part in the process. Multiple days and people gives room to deeper experiential work.
In my workshops, you will be encouraged to reflect, notice, and work in the moment. Combining both academic teaching and experiential practices will help you ‘do’ what you learned cognitively. You will be invited express, practice and focus on yourself in the container of the larger group.
With systemic work, I help make the unconscious conscious, by asking systemic questions and through visualizing with objects. These representations help to shift (unconscious) patterns that have been a part of you for as long as you can remember.
On request, I facilitate family constellation workshops. A constellation is a visual representation that can illuminate hidden structures, patterns and dynamics in your family system(s). I work with imagery, table objects and floor anchors. Working systemically can help you identify unconscious family loyalties and hidden dynamics that we carry on in our words and the way in which we live and lead our lives.
Important questions you can ask yourself
♦ Have you ever given your family or company history any thought?
♦ What are the stories of the past?
♦ What are recurring themes and situations?
♦ How do they influence you or your organisation today?
Systemic work is a powerful method which I have incorporated into my work, and means taking a different perspective. A family constellation is a visual representation that can illuminate hidden structures, patterns and dynamics present in your (family) system. It can help you identify unconscious loyalties and hidden dynamics that we carry on in our words and the way in which we live and lead our lives. Making the unconscious conscious, through the visual representation of the constellation, helps to work through them and shift patterns that have been a part of you for as long as you can remember.
Systemic Work has become mainstream in many professional arena’s and is still developing with new insights. I have translated books by Jan Jacob Stam, Bibi Schreuder (founders of the Bert Hellinger Institute, the leading body in this field) and Barbara Hoogenboom (co-director of the Bert Hellinger Institute).
“I was surprised by the power of her systemic coaching, that allowed me to be vulnerable, to open up and thereby revealed new eye opening insights. She didn’t provide me with solutions for my questions, she didn’t tell me what to do. Instead she helped me find my own answers and solutions from within myself. Barbara has a talent to make underlying thoughts and feelings visible, which catalyzed my thought process and allowed me to find my answers from within myself. ”

The Inner Negotiation Workshop
The Inner Negotiation Workshop (INW) – The Inner Negotiation Workshop was created by Dr. Cherie Carter-Scott, Ph.D, MCC in 1974. Since its inception, her company, The MMS Institute has led these workshops all over the globe.
The INW is about Creating Limitless Possibilities. Break though, Strategise, Grow.
Experience: this 2-day workshop… For those ready to show up in their lives in a grander, more empowered way.
Learn: how to… break through old patterns, master self-defeating tendencies, ritualise, change in a positive way, and formulate, strategies for transitions.
Discover: the power of the INW…
As a participant in the Inner Negotiation Workshop, you are invited to focus on what you want, rather than what you think is possible. You are encouraged to reflect, notice, and speak up for yourself regardless of how unreasonable your wishes. You are urged to express your wants, hopes, and dreams, rather than discounting them as unrealistic or stupid. You are prompted to look within yourself, to trust your deepest instincts, and to determine a way to have your wishes become real. The time capsule environment of the Inner Negotiation Workshop acts as a catalyst for enormous movement in people’s lives.
As a coach and facilitator, I am part of the team that runs the Inner Negotiation workshop for The MMS Institute Northern California, which was started in California by MMS licensees, Carla Morton and Lindsey Taylor.
Send me an email if you are interested or if know someone who would benefit from this workshop and we can plan an intake call.
