Heike works in private practice as a psychotherapist, teaches a number of Process Oriented Psychology subjects at Metavision Institute and works as a coach and community facilitator. She is constantly astounded and amazed by the magic and deep transformation that happens when people’s processes are lovingly and attentively followed, and the depth of wisdom each of us has, is accessed.
She graduated from the Process Work Institute in Portland Oregon with two Masters, in 2008 and in 2010. Her Master’s theses were “What is Organisational Change from a Process Work Perspective?” and “Dealing with Fear in Paragliding”. Heike has been on the IAPOP (International Association of Process Oriented Psychology) Board for 8 years, and was the Chairperson for the Ecovillage at Currumbin Body Corporate for 7 years, supporting and guiding that community in its formative stages.
Before working in private practice and teaching she worked for a number of decades as a Management Consultant all over Australia and the world, with small and large organisations including small businesses and multinationals, and has experience working in the private and public sectors. Her work included Organisational Development Consulting and she has extensive experience as a Senior Project Manager and Change Manager, with a track record of successfully delivering complex business and transformation projects. She ended this part of her career with a deeply fulfilling 6 month contract in Zambia, back on the continent of her birth.
Connection is important to Heike. Connection to the Divine, to Herself and herself, to Nature, to her partner, friends and family and to community. These days she loves having spaciousness in her life, which facilitates this Connection. She also enjoys surfing, dancing, bike riding, cooking and loves sailing with hump back whales.
