In my work, I provide effective and transformative tools and strategies for personal growth and wellbeing both on a private and a professional level. I love seeing my clients expand their awareness and find more clarity, fulfilment, and balance as complex physical, emotional, mental and spiritual human beings.

I am an expert in designing and delivering experiential workshops, trainings and coaching programmes that meet the specific needs of each client. All programmes can be delivered both in-person and virtually.

Before starting my own business, I gained more than 20 years of international corporate experience in communications, digital media and finance with FIFA and KPMG.

A curious and avid learner with a life-long interest in personal development, I hold numerous internationally recognised certifications for coaching individuals, teams and organisations as well as a master’s degree in Business Administration.

Coaching qualifications: 400+ hours of coaching experience and 600+ hours of coach and leadership development training (Co-Active Coach, Co-Active Leadership Program, ORSC – Organisation & Relationship Systems Coach, CTPC – Certified Team Performance Coach™, Laser-Focused Coaching Program, FMCHC – Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach).

Originally from Norway, I live and thrive in Switzerland since my student years, and I'm fluent in English, German, French and Norwegian.

I love cats and my core values are freedom, integrity, connection, wisdom and wellbeing.

Organisations don't transform. People do!

Norun’s Self Leadership coaching program is a must for anyone who wants to learn more about themselves through powerful self-discovery ideas and techniques. Norun is a kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable coach who is an absolute delight to be around. Her course totally transformed my way of thinking and living for the better. Everything she speaks about is easy to understand and helpful. She has a real gift with her coaching style and course material is top notch! I highly recommend her course and any course she puts out. The insights I gained personally are so valuable and very grateful to Norun for sharing her knowledge and wisdom. Norun is a gem of a coach.

Norun’s Self-Leadership Program is one of a kind and has had a profound impact on how I understand myself and show up in the world. She has masterfully crafted a program that builds upon deep knowledge of human psychology and behavior sciences combined with practical tools and applications to take immediately into daily life. With her program, I was able to connect with my authentic voice and step into my personal power. As a facilitator, Norun has the gift of creating an atmosphere of trust, empathy, and openness. I found her course material rich with content, well-organized, and something I will certainly revisit for reference and guidance. Her signature 6-Step Process for Effective Self-Regulation Technique that she has created is fantastic and I use it now on a regular basis in personal and professional situations. Her extensive experience and deep reflections shine through the program and she brings a unique interdisciplinary understanding to the essence of self-leadership. It has been a journey of deep reflection and transformation. I feel stronger and empowered having completed her program, to which I am very grateful.

Norun is a very professional, open, and empathic coach. After the discovery session she could design a great program that perfectly suite my needs. The coaching has been a great introspective experience, during which I could learn powerful techniques to apply in stressful situations. Norun has been a precious guide throughout the sessions: her interactive way of working allowed me to become more aware of my strengths and weakness and made the whole experience pleasant and enjoyable.
Carolina, Italy
The better we know ourselves, the better we can lead us and as a result the better we can lead other people. It starts from within. Norun offered the theories, tools, and guidance to do exactly that - to focus on our deepest feelings and thoughts to get to know ourselves better. It is a challenging and exhausting process and requires much commitment, but it is worth it. Norun helped to recognize patterns and offered ways to break through them. Her charming nature and passion for self development are very motivating.
Kristina, Germany
I really appreciated Norun’ flexibility; the fact that she was able to adapt to my changing needs; she has given me tools, encouragement and guidance. I really enjoyed working with her; she takes her time and she shares her own experiences which is extremely helpful. This has been a real exchange which was precisely what I was looking for. As a result of the coaching I am must clearer on my own objectives, needs and wishes. This is key for me while moving forward in my professional career as well as in my private life.
