I am passionate about seeing people around me reaching their full potential and to living life with all they are and have.  This is why I work as a coach, to empower you to discover your dreams, to set and reach your goals, and to live a fulfilling life.

I am a mother of four boys and happily married to my husband of 20 years. I am Norwegian and have for most of my adult life lived and worked abroad.

Since 2004 I have lived in Romania, and work with the international organisation “Youth with a Mission”. Together with my husband we have built up an organisation with about 25 full-time staff who work in many different domains. We have transitioned the leadership to a new generation of leaders, making it possible to focus more of my time on coaching and mentoring.

I have a bachelors degree in nursing and I am currently working on my Masters in Intercultural Communication.

I have a two year coaching course with Coaching Academy in Oslo, Norway. I am working towards my ACC credential with ICF- International Coach Federation, and I am committed to their  ethical standard in my coaching practice.

Today I live and work partly in Norway and Romania.

What is Coaching

What is coaching?

Coaching is a great tool for life and leadership that will help you to bring out the best in your day-to-day life.  It is a time for you to share what kind of things you want to achieve for your life and together we will work to define your goals and the steps required for reaching them.  Coaching can be used for your work or your private life.  Most of my sessions are via Skype, FaceTime or Messenger, so you won’t loose valuable time coming to see me or traveling. 

Areas of Coaching

Areas of Coaching

Life Coaching

In life coaching I coach you in areas of your life that are important to you.  We look at what your values are and how your life reflects these. It can be areas of health, time management, family, relationship, desires and dreams for the future.

Transformational coaching is dealing with your personal inner being. Who are you and who do you want to be? We explore your values, your identity and where you want to go. Transformational coaching is an excellent tool in any transition in life.

Leadership Coaching

Do you want to improve your leadership skills? Then leadership coaching can help you grow and develop as a leader.
