A heartfelt Welcome to my Page.
~ Claudia van Zuiden, Founder and Executive Director of Solution Ways:
‘A Holistic Solution Focused Therapy/ Coaching/ Consulting/ Training Practice’
To address all aspects mentioned, I offer:
I internationally facilitate workshops in:
- Ethical Solution Focused Based Practice
- Solution Focused Wellness Plans
- Mindful Leadership Training
- Finding your Happy: 16 Guidelines for Life (accredited Worldwide Facilitator of the Foundation for the Foundation of Developing Wisdom and Compassion, FDCW, www.compassionandwisdom.org/facilitator/2018/5/23/claudia-van-zuiden)
I believe that in order to live a healthy and a meaningful life, we have to include, and look after, all the aspects of who we are. To remain as healthy and well as possible, I have been practising Yoga and Meditation for over 35 years and have been teaching Yoga for nearly 20 years. More information about my classes and workshops is available on the Yoga page. The effect of being healthy and feeling well, will greatly influence how we go through our daily lives and how we perform in the workplace.
Over the last 20 years, I have worked across business, not-for-profit organisations, community-based organisations, NHS and the education sector.
Individual Solution Focused Therapy/ Coaching/ Mentoring Sessions:
The support I give in the Solution Focused based sessions with clients, focuses on the client’s strengths and skills that they have already and explores in detail, how the client can apply more of these strengths and skills into their personal and/or professional life to reach their desired goal(s).
Solution Focused Progress Process at workplaces:
The same solution focused process applies to workplaces and in work performances/supervision/ management settings. We will explore what is working already in the team or workplace and we will explore how we can apply more of these personal- and/or team-skills into the workplace. This is positive, solution focused team-management which is highly motivational and inspiring. The progress of the preferred future can be measured in Solution Focused Practice, which is extremely effective.

A bit more about Claudia van Zuiden:
Claudia currently lives in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Her background is in directing a retail business, in professional photography, and in mental health nursing. Claudia is a qualified Yoga teacher since 2001. She also has studied Buddhism for over 25 years and teaches meditation techniques to beginners and advanced meditation practitioners alike.
Claudia has an entrepreneurial background and is the founder of ‘The Hive’ Group (started in 2013) . Claudia prefers the word ‘entre-doneur’, which refers to ‘giver’ or ‘who works between or with others’. This reflects in several community projects of which she is the founder. The Hive is a support network and platform for business women, women entrepreneurs, women in leadership roles, women who are looking for inspiration to continue their creative and productive ideas and/or any other women who feel that they might benefit of actively participating in this group. For more information about other community projects you can follow this link: Solution Ways Community Projects
Naturally Claudia seems to look at solutions in challenging situations, so it is no surprise that she was attracted to the Solution Focused Brief Therapy technique and trained as a SFBT therapist at Robert Gordon’s University, Aberdeen, Scotland,UK.
Claudia found many similarities in the Eastern philosophy and in Solution Focused Brief Therapy and introduced Solution Focused Interventions in Nepal in 2011, where she was invited by the Department of Psychology to teach at Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu.
As part of her philosophy in ‘Paying-it-forward’ she has trained students, counsellors and mental health workers in Nepal in Solution Focused Interventions Skills. She also gave training in the solution focused interventions in November 2012 at the Nepal Mental Health Foundation and had delivered post trauma solution focused supervision training in June 2015 in Nepal. Her aim is to bring this technique more to the awareness in professional and volunteer institutions in developing countries, where there is very little mental health support.
Claudia has been working as therapist, coach and workshop facilitator in the Solution Focused Approach since 2002. She has given training in this technique in her own motivational, inspiring way internationally and is also invited at global events to speak about the 16 Guidelines for Life Programme, Solution Focused Applications in Developing Countries and Compassionate Leadership.
