About. ROM


I am passionate about seeing people around me reaching their full potential in life- and to live 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 a happily married to my husband for 20 years. I am Norwegian and have for most of my adult life lived and worked abroad.

I live in Romania (since 2004) 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 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 am also working on my certification for coaching with ICF (International Coaching Federation).

What is Coaching

What is coaching?

I can help you define your goals and walk with you as you reach them. Coaching is a great leadership and life tool that will bring out the best in you and in your day to day life. That means at work or in 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 are your values 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.

Cross cultural and transition coaching

Are you part of a cross cultural team? Do you work in a intercultural setting?



What I offer

I offer individual coaching through Skype (or any other video and audio medium), or in person if it is possible.

One coaching session is 45-60 minutes, and I offer the first introductory session pro bono. To achieve a goal or to bring a change I recommend you at least 4-6 sessions. These can take place weekly or every other week.

I also do a free follow up session about 3 month after the initially agreed sessions finishes.

I am coaching in 3 languages, English, Norwegian and Romanian.

Please contact me for prices on the different types of coaching.

I also offer team coaching. Do you desire for your team to grow and flourish?  I can help you with coaching both individuals and you as a whole team to a better dynamic.

Please contact us for more information.



 Some feedback from people I have been coaching and mentoring

“Irene has been an amazing mentor of mine for 13 years. She speaks wisdom and lives out what she believes caring for her family and people around her. I highly recommend Irene as a coach.


I’ve been inspired by Irene in many ways..she is a genuine person, caring and honest in her friendship. I trust her for advice and I believe she has the wisdom and life experience to guide people with questions of a wide range.


I came to know Irene as a very wise woman. Her personality makes it very easy to talk openly.
I felt at home and safe immedia
tely. She is very kind and patient and has a depth of life experience in area s of leadership, motherhood and relating cross culturally. She lifted me up to find strength in God during a crisis period in my life. I’ve been truely blessed. Thank you Irene.”
