Natascha Speets

The Forward Focused Conversations Arc was designed by Natascha Speets (PCC) who came to the realization that most modern coaching styles and frameworks promote the same wish for their clients: Positive change, sustained learning, and deep awareness of self. 

Natascha is a certified Solutions Focused practitioner, but also uses her knowledge of systemic coaching, the GROW model, non-violent communication, and appreciative inquiry when engaging with her clients in coaching conversations.
