Tunde holds an Ashridge Master’s Degree in Executive Relational Coaching backed up by EMCC’s accreditation at Senior Practitioner level, ICF Credentialing at MCC level, and 10+ years of experience as a Coach. Currently she is a PhD candidate with Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (NL), Ashridge Centre for Coaching (UK), and Case Western Reserve University (US). She offers conversations with a psycho-dynamic approach, which focuses on the ‘players on stage’ in what seems to be a mature model in addressing tasks and goals. Tünde investigates personal and organisational issues which remain unspoken, forgotten, left out, denied, or repressed towards overcoming conscious and unconscious resistance. This emphasis on the self and all the positive and negative responses that other players on the stage might trigger in the self and in each other has proven to be fruitful for all parties involved, grew out of the requirement in her coaching work that “You can take a horse to the water but you can’t make it drink.”
