Margarete van den Brink grew up in the Netherlands where she trained as a counsellor. Her counselling of individuals later evolved into the coaching of managers and leaders. She believes that all forms of counselling require a spiritual basis for them to be effective, and her own practice is particularly influenced by Anthroposophy, developed by Rudolf Steiner.
Passionate about communication, she has written extensively on leadership, personal development and religion. She has published numerous books, in German, Dutch and English, and some of her articles are available to read on-line.
She is author of More Precious than Light: How dialogue can transform relationships and build community.
