As an experienced systemic academic certified coach / counsellor and trainer I, Karen van Hout, am happy to be at your and/or your team service.

About Karen van Hout:

A ‘Human-System Analyst’ with a fascination for our most powerful asset, the Brain. Respectful, inventive and goal oriented with compassion for you and passion for the profession. Founder of OF WOOD SarlS and Co founder of the Systemic Neuroscience Consulting Group for Business and Leadership in Luxembourg.

Through my own experiences, I am convinced that every individual is capable of being the director of his of her own life and can learn ( or continue )  to take and stay in control.

I have ‘been there, done that’. I became the director in my own life story, leaving parts of the scripts untouched when I thought it was good and rewrote it where needed=>  mould it into a form that serves me best. With the result I live the life I aimed for. Both private and carrier-wise.

The words ‘cannot’ and ‘impossible’ are not part of my vocabulary. There is always a way out. If I can do it, that certainly can you. The knowledge I gained during my own journey is my gift to you.

In my professional past I fulfilled operational, therapeutic, coaching and managerial roles in healthcare and the financial sector. I mainly work with Growing companies, Rising female professionals and their teams. ( In-Company and Private)

The Systemic Approach:

After working in healthcare and the financial world I rediscovered coaching, counselling and training in 2011. I started to gaining knowledge and followed training in this area of expertise. Everything I’ve ever done and learned contributes to how I go about my current work. It’s who I am.

Working systemically is my love at first sight and source of direction in the coaching field, which I love to share with you, to give you the opportunity to gain the necessary insight to have or take back your own life as director and to keep it that way.

Systemic work is innovative, focused, effective and solution-oriented. It takes relatively little time to achieve the desired results and perceived as very enjoyable.

Systems-thinking goes beyond the obvious
