My name is Tali van Eesteren - Ben Weiss, I live in Ouderkerk aan de Amstel, The Netherlands, with my partner and my daughters.
Life has given me great opportunities and taught me some valuable lessons. After a fulfilling career in sales and marketing in the pharmaceutical industry, I realized that working with people in challenging situations is what brings me the most satisfaction.
A degree in coaching in 2012 was the first step in my journey towards helping people and later on, I got my Mediation and Family Mediation diploma from Gome Gevim, the Center of Mediation & Coaching..
I am a registered mediator, specializing in Divorce Mediation at NMv - the Dutch Mediators Association. I am also a certified coach from the Academy of Counseling and Coaching in the Netherlands.
Why mediation and counseling?
The beauty of mediation and counseling is that it focuses on trust and cooperation, even in situations that seem hopeless. People have the ability to solve their conflicts themselves, and mediation and counseling is a tool to support them during this rough patch. As a mediator and a counselor I handle the process, and the parties are responsible for the outcome. I wish I had known about mediation and counseling when my first marriage ended in divorce, over 20 years ago. It would have allowed us both to get a clearer understanding of how we lost ourselves and each other, and find solutions for all the practical, emotional and organizational aspects of the divorce.
What makes me different?
Because of my own multicultural background and international experience, I am able to create a climate in which both partners can be productive, comfortable and involved. I believe that cultural diversity awareness is a key in helping parties trust the process, and work towards resolution.
