Jan Jacob Stam

I am Jan Jacob Stam. Being the founder of the Bert Hellinger Instituut the Netherlands I am more than grateful and excited about the fact that I found a field to work in that is both fascinating and fostering and that might be of great value for society.

At the institute I am the trainer of various workshops and training programs. At the moment I am gaining most of my important new insights from working with organisations and social issues. Currently I am working in more than thirty countries, my courses are either in Dutch or English.

As a former biologist I love living systems. I observe them without judgment and without aiming to improve them. I have been a teacher for over ten years at high schools, I have been a manager at a telecom company and I have been a partner in a consultancy firm. It feels like everything merged into my current job as a systemic constellator. The passion of exploring…

I still feel that excitement which I used to feel when I was a little boy playing on the beach – discovering beautiful shells from the giant ocean of knowledge.

Bibi Schreuder

I am Bibi Schreuder, co-owner and trainer at the Bert Hellinger Institute the Netherlands. From an intrinsic passion for learning I aim to provide people their own experience of learning by facilitating the process. In order to help people getting a grasp on the systemic approach I developed a numerous amount of exercises. I appear to be a precise observer with a good sense of humour and a great love for the profession.

My expertise in systemic pedagogy is a result of my background in education. I think it is very interesting to systemicly investigate theme’s like ‘bullying’, ‘learning difficulties’, ‘autism’, but also to look deeper into concerns centred around health and illness. By doing constellations and systemic coaching I am able to support people in their movement in life or work. Moreover, I teach in several countries (in English).
I completed the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and from 1976 to 2001 I worked as an Art teacher, being a trainee coach and coordinator as well.

I am married to Jan Jacob Stam and mother of a daughter and son (who are adults already). I have always been fascinated by the forces of nature, like the beauty of a tree healing its branches after a heavy period of glazed frost. I perceive systemic work in the same way as the undeniable power of nature – you can only go with the flow , never against it.

Barbara Hoogenboom

I am Barbara Hoogenboom, co-owner and trainer at the Bert Hellinger Institute the Netherlands. What I love to do is spread this beautiful, logical and practical work through trainings, workshops and coaching. The moments I realize that participants of workshops and training programs pass the systemic principles on in their own way in their families, organisations and society fill me with great joy. I am still surprised by how the systemic work supports a deep realization of how you can look at life, systems and organizations. It is such a logical principle and yet so undefined at the same time.

I studied Business Administration at Nyenrode University and the University of Oregon and graduated in 1993. After my graduation I worked as an account- and team manager and as a trainer/consultant, primarily in the financial sector of which some years abroad. After this I became a mediator and entrepreneur for a period of twelve years, in which I supported parties in many conflicts to reach a solution.

I am married, mother of three young children and I am living in Amsterdam. Furthermore I love (making) healthy and pure food, running and pilates.

Anton de Kroon

At the first sight something may look as being a problem – and therefore usually not being welcomed – but at a deeper, systemic level it could be a beautiful solution.

To me it is crucial that people showing an interest in exploring this phenomenon discover how to make the move from the excluding ‘no’, to the including ‘yes’.

Contributing to this via teaching and training, gives me great satisfaction in my work. In exchange for this I also travel with pleasure through Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.

After having worked as a management consultant for fifteen years, I work since 2008 in liaison with the Bert Hellinger Institute. In close cooperation with Siebke Kaat I translated constellation work into a ‘normal’ conversation in consulting- and coaching processes. I published books and articles on this subject. In combination with giving trainings and workshops I contribute to making the systemic-phenomenological approach more accessible and applicable.

For some thirty-five years I was a keen mountaineer. Nowadays I enjoy long-distance hiking, in order to relax and to get charged up again.

Siebke Kaat

I am Siebe Kaat and almost ten year connected to the Bert Hellinger Institute the Netherlands. Together with Anton de Kroon I am the inventor of the training ‘to intervene in a systemic way’, which I am still facilitating with a lot of enthusiasm.

I am currently an organisation consultant and coach. This is way I love to give people the means to integrate systemic work in their profession, without actually doing constellations physically. The particular interest of capturing the effect of a constellation without doing the constellation resulted in the book ‘To intervene in a systemic way – perceiving the organisation as a living organism’ that I wrote together with Anton de Kroon. The book focusses on the practical translation and implementation of systemic insights.

I am interested in improving the resilience of people, teams and organisation. I believe that when people are in the right place, where they belong, they will benefit and develop themselves, the team and the organisation.

 

 

Yvonne Lonis

For more than twenty years now I work as a trainer and coach. Until 2003 I was working for several organisations, including the Department of Justice. From 2004 I have my own coaching and training company and I am primarily focusing on leadership development, teambuilding, personal development, communication training and methods, coaching, intervision and process support.

From the moment I worked with constellations and completed different systemic training programs, my systemic perception travels everywhere with me. I am aiming to integrate the systemic perspective as much as possible in my profession. I facilitate workshops with both family- and organisational constellations. I am a trainer in several trainings and a systemic coach. I love teaching and spreading systemic work and tapping in on the systemic awareness that is already there, in students, companies and society. I am known for my pragmatic, connecting and thorough way of working.

I am married, I live in the centre of the country and I am a mother of two (adult) children.

Marion Latour

My name is Marion Latour and I am working at the Bert Hellinger Institute as a trainer and coach. Providing training and workshops in the field of systemic work in organizations is my specialization and passion. How can you awaken systemic consciousness and intelligence in organizations?

I also enjoy working with the systemic wisdom of horses, therefore I provide the systemic workshops with horses on both personal and organizational issues of individuals and teams.

I give courses and workshops in both Dutch and English.

In the past 19 years I have had several leadership positions within the fire brigade and the police. Since 2013 I combine systemic knowledge with my work at the fire brigade. Each organization has systemic intelligence, but every organization has its own ways to discover it. I find it a challenge to unravel that puzzle.

Together with my partner and his children, we enjoy nature, our horses and other animals on our farm at an inspiring place in Drenthe.

René Wijngaard

After a business degree in accountancy and having worked for many years as a consultant in the field of asset management for individuals, associations and foundations, I’m finding out more about the human behavior behind the business decisions. After giving many subject-specific training, and later attending a post-graduate degree in coaching and counseling, NLP and stress and burnout treatment, I developed as trainer / coach and facilitator of transformation processes. I have coached many (senior) managers and their teams in leadership programs. Since I came into contact for the first time in 2011 with systemic work, there is a fascination with this way of seeing and guiding.Trained as both organizational- and familyconstellator, I’d like to focus on increasing the systemic intelligence on the leaders of today and providing systemic training and coaching.

I was born and raised in the Groningen country, now live in Assen and I am father of a reconstituted family with three children.

Désirée van de Hoef

I am a trainer in heart and soul.

My mission is to contribute to the welfare and happiness of people by contributing to their development, their gaining of insights and their growth processes.

Before I started as a trainer and coach I worked as an HR consultant, project manager and supervisor in several different companies. I take all those lessons and experiences from previous jobs with me in the trainings, workshops and coaching processes I facilitate.

My main area of interest lies in what is grounded in the deepest unconscious processes of people and organisations and what expresses itself in their behaviours. Putting it differently: what makes you behave and act the way you do?

I am a great fan of one-liners. Powerful sentences that use no more words than necessary to get straight to essence of life.
Two of my favourites:

– ‘I never did it, so I think I can do this’ – Pippi Longstocking

– ‘Instead of falling down and getting up, we can also get up and stand out’ – Loesje
