“Mirjam has helped me enormously to accept my feelings and thoughts more. Her warm and unconditional attention gave me a lot of safety to explore myself. I feel seen.” – Fabian, coaching client

 

“I feel welcome with Mirjam with all that I am. I dare to express all that’s alive in me, even when it is not at all ‘socially acceptable’. No judgements, only complete acceptance and space for whatever I feel. I therefore can freely discover my inner world. That is how I experience Mirjam again and again. With her, I feel safe.” – Nancy, coaching client

 

“When I first attended her workshop, I was filled with guilt, shame and nerves. I didn’t know how to process the flooding of emotions and Mirjam could sense that and she gave me the extra time and attention it took to feel comfortable. It’s hard to open up to others about feelings that you don’t understand, but Mirjam created an environment that was safe for participants to talk openly. In the process I learned that we as human beings share the same feelings of confusion and anxiety. And the more we talk about it, the stronger we become. Today I feel much more confident in myself and I am working towards being my most authentic self. And whenever I face a scary situation, I think back on how scary that day of the workshop was and how I made it through. I have Mirjam to thank for making it possible. She is truly inspirational to me.”Pedro, participant workshop ‘From shame and guilt towards self-acceptance’ 

 

“Her passion, love, warmth, professionalism, knowledge and, most of all, her way of transferring this knowledge to us have inspired me positively and gave me the trust to start working as a counselor ” – Jorgos, participant counselor training 

 

“From my first moments of meeting Mirjam, I had a sense of warmth and trust. This has only grown over the past years, particularly as we collaborate as trainers of NVC-based courses. In my experience of her, Mirjam inspires me by modeling NVC throughout her various roles (as mother, partner, friend, colleague) by connecting to and speaking from her authenticity as well as listening with great compassion.” – Cara Crisler, NVC-based coach & trainer
