I am Renate, a trilingual (French, English, Dutch) Coach (Life Coach for Adults and for Adolescents & Professional/Career Coach) and Psychologist (Psychological Counselor, Relationship Counselor, EMDR Therapist). With my independent enterprise “Coppet Coaching & Counseling” I work with both individuals and companies.
My professional background
After obtaining my Master’s degree in Psychology in 2005 (MSc), I knew that helping people and making a difference in their lives is what I want to do.
I first started working in human resources in international, corporate environments for 8 years. Managing relationships, interviewing people and “profiling” were always part of my role, as well as Coaching Professionals. I certified in the use of Psychometric tools to help professionals understand their social type and improve their interactions with co-workers. After working in the corporate sector, I certified in Life Coaching (ICF) and continued my education in Relationship Counseling (Couple’s, FTSP and EFT), ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy) and EMDR Therapy. Most recently I finished a bachelor course in Adolescent Psychology.
My personal background
I am from The Netherlands and have been living in Switzerland since 2007. I have two daughters with my Dutch husband, so I understand very well the struggles (and beauty) that Expat Life, Married Life, Cultural Differences and Parenting may bring. I am truly fascinated by the uniqueness of every person I meet and I am passionate about helping them get where they want to be.
Everybody must deal with adversities at times in their lives. And often we think we are unable to get ourselves out of our downward spiral and feel completely stuck. However low you feel today and however impossible it seems to you now to get yourself un-stuck, there is always one step forward that you can think of. Perhaps that step forward for you is me.
I look forward to hearing from you and organize an exploratory talk about you.
