Corrie van Haasteren

Netherlands Rotterdam

Corrie van Haasteren states: 'I co-counsel for more then 30 years now; so co-counselling has been and still is, very important to me. I learned a lot about myself by being a co-counsellor. My fundamentals meant a major change in my life. For the first time I really felt accepted as the person I was. Because co-counselling was so important to me, I wanted to share my knowledge and my wealth with as much people as possible. And I am a co-counsel teacher now for almost 30 years! One of the aspects of co-counselling is the equality between 'client' and 'therapist' and that to me, is very important in my contact with other human beings. I am a professional rebirther as well, in my opinion two methods of personal growth you can combine very well together'.  @

Netherlands Friesland Donkerbroek

Joke Stassen: co-counselling helps me to be in charge of my life, to be in touch with my feelings and my intuition and to make clear decisions. Teaching CCI co-counselling is passing on a gift, for which I am grateful. I am a psychologist and did my CCI teachers training in 1993-1995 in Birmingham (UK) and later in the Netherlands. Titles of follow-up workshops I have facilitated indicate the wide range of topics in which co-counselling can be a useful tool: e.g. body and spirit, my loveable computer, peace and conflict. I am interested in integrating non-violent communication with co-counselling and developed together with Fred Wallace and Niek Sickenga the workshop Aware communication, which includes co-counselling, non-violent communication, and decision making skills. I am a travelling teacher: I am willing to come to other countries to teach.

Mira Reus is a CCI co-counsellor since 1992 and an accredited trainer since 2007. ' I facilitate fundamentals because I have always been interested in what makes people happy. I think that happiness and personal growth go hand in hand. For me, co-counselling gives a lot of opportunities for growth. It inspires me to live more openly and creatively. What I like in CCI are the equivalence, the clarity, the safety and the warmth. It makes my life rich to be part of a community of people on which I can depend. By teaching I give others the opportunity to experience that too'. @

I obtain skills to handle my emotions and it gives me a possibility to change my life the way I would like to. It is fun to grow among others, who do the same and share, and...lots of fun too..'. @

'I am convinced that the format of CCI contributes tremendously to my continuously transformation from (CCI) co-counselling into co-creating and beyond. Practising CCI means for me: teaching to facilitate the pre-conditions to start this personal process of awareness in discovering whom I am and to create to live my life my way. It is a privilege to assist people in a non hierarchical environment, to find their own way in this ongoing process of an unfolding personal journey. @
