My approach is characterised by the idea that an organisation’s full potential can be reached through partnership (relations). I operate according to this vision: “We are useful to people when we see the potential that they don’t notice.” (Cooperrider)

I create an environment where people feel encouraged to learn and to pursue personal growth. This way, people will improve their skills and be activated to take own responsibility for their development. Staff members learn how to work with the most complicated cases and how to achieve the best results for the children and families they are involved in.

I adjust every trajectory to the needs of my clients and the knowledge available in your organisation. My involvement may vary from one individual workshop to a complete implementation process.


Besides training and coaching there are other ways of working that might be of use, for instance:

  • Doing a ‘Good Practice’ interview with clients, partners, staff members and/or teams
  • Giving lectures (link experience) about Signs of Safety, in relation to child abuse and (for example) child abuse reporting code
  • Lead a Signs of Safety evaluation/meeting on jammed or complex cases
  • Organise Signs of Safety events, such as the first Dutch Signs of Safety Gathering that took place in February 2016
