A very warm and heartfelt welcome to my website.
My name is Claudia van Zuiden and I am the director of Solution Ways, Bussum, The Netherlands.
My work involves:
- Coaching and Mentoring
- Yoga, Mindfulness and Stress Management
- Team and Progress Building Workshops
To live a healthy and a meaningful life, we have to include, and look after, all the aspects of who we are. Besides being a therapist, coach and trainer, I have been practising Yoga and Meditation for over 40 years and have been teaching Yoga and meditation for over 20 years. This helped me to balance the busy lifestyle I lead and to live a healthy and meaningful life.
Some examples of the Masterclasses/ workshops I facilitate are the following:
- Developing Compassion and Inner Values
- Solution Focused Wellness Plans
- Mindful and Compassionate Leadership Training
- Building Inner Strength: 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)
- Unlocking your Potential Training
- Masterclass Solution Focused Teamwork
Over the last 20 years, I have worked internationally across business, not-for-profit organisations, community-based organisations, NHS and the education sector delivering workshops in:
- Personal Leadership, Conscious Development, Conscious Coaching and Therapy
- Team Development and Leadership Training
A bit more about Claudia van Zuiden:
Claudia currently lives in Bussum, 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 likes to help people to become more empowered and to find their Life’s purpose. She is the founder of several Community Projects
Claudia trained as a Solution Focused Brief Therapist at Robert Gordon’s University, Aberdeen, Scotland, UK. She 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 in many countries. She also gets invited to speak about the 16 Guidelines for Life: Building Inner Strength Programme, about her work in Solution Focused Applications in developing countries and about Developing Compassionate Leadership.
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 after the earthquake disasters. One of her aims 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 speaks both fluent English and Dutch
