About me

About me

Renate Wassenberg

I am Renate, a trilingual (French, English, Dutch) Psychologist (MSc), Life Coach (ICF certified), Relationship Counselor, Career Consultant and EMDR therapist. With my independent enterprise "Coppet Coaching & Counseling" I work with both individuals and companies.

Since 2006 I have worked in international, corporate environments where interpersonal relationships and “profiling” played a key role. When working in Human Resources, interviewing people about their Career and Coaching Professionals were always part of my objectives. I certified in the use of Psychometric tools to help professionals understand their social type and improve their interactions with co-workers. After obtaining my Master’s degree in Psychology, I realized that helping people and making a difference in their lives is where my passion lies. After working in the corporate sector, I certified in Life Coaching and continued my training in Relationship Counseling (Couple’s and EFT) and EMDR Therapy.

From a personal perspective, I am from The Netherlands and have been living in Switzerland since 2007. I have two daughters with my Dutch husband, so I understand very well the struggles (and beauty) that Expat Life, Married Life, Cultural Differences and Parenting may bring. I am truly fascinated by the uniqueness of every person I meet and I am passionate about helping them get where they want to be.

Everybody must deal with adversities at times in their lives. And often we think we are unable to get ourselves out of our downward spiral and feel completely stuck. However low you feel today and however impossible it seems to you now to get yourself un-stuck, there is always one step forward that you can think of. Perhaps that step forward for you is me.

I look forward to hearing from you and organize an exploratory talk about you.
