online coaching and workshops
We all have experienced that feeling of being unhappy after a conversation: that we haven’t communicated the way we wanted to, we didn’t know quite what to say, we were too direct or too awkward, or found urselves just repeating old formulas and getting nowhere.
In the heat of the moment tension or old patterns often take over, because most of us have never learned to be fully present when things get uncomfortable.
It’s only afterwards that we realize how we could have acted better, and got the result we wanted.
“What I should have said is…!”
My trainings will give you tools that enable you to always communicate from your personal ‘Window of Presence’, so that in the heat of the moment you can maintain a relaxed state-of-awareness and respond adequately.
How I work?
Using a case-study, we take a closer look at your communication patterns. Either in a one-on-one session, or in a small workshop group. A bit like in a laboratory, we look at what happens to you when you interact with others.
First we explore what you want to achieve and ways to prepare for it.
Then, in a safe environment, we go through the situation several times, and closely observe your inner dynamics while you experiment with different communication styles, and experience different outcomes.
We’ll discover the style that best suits you, and allows you to fully express yourself, to share your truth, and so achieve what you want.
You’ll know how to use a set of tools that will enable you to stay in contact with yourself and your goals. You’ll know how to stay aware of those signals in your body that want to drag you out of the situation. You’ll have expanded your bounderies, and enlarged your window of presence. You’ll have had the experience of doing things differently, and posess the tools to do it.
You’ll feel more confident and empowered.

In only two hours, and online (!) Alexandra has taught me how to deliver a good pitch.
She’s given me a step-by-step plan which enables me to easily make different pitches for different target groups.
It was great working with her. She is relaxed, easy to get on with, and an expert at what she does.

My self-presentation improved by exploring with Alexandra how to be more present in a situation,
and discovering how that makes communication more effective.
Alexandra asks probing questions; in my experience she’s a powerful, wise and gentle woman expert at helping others grow.

I experienced the way you worked as very enjoyable.
In my daily life I am almost always in the role of leading or guiding others.
It was a breath of fresh air for me to get guidance myself.
It’s a pleasure to experience your dedication and commitment;
you were a hundred percent there for me, and that’s a special talent you have.
I rarely feel connected to someone so quickly. That’s special and beautiful.
