Noa Brume and Els Barkema - Sala are fully licensed to give our
Courses of Counselling and Coaching on all levels.
They do so in The Hague - The Netherlands.
Noa Brume is our trainer for the International Counselling and Coaching courses.
She has been teaching in the Academy since 2013 and is one of our most liked and highly respected trainers. It's her positive and dynamic approach which makes her teaching interesting and engaging.
Noa is a highly qualified and greatly experienced trainer, she has been teaching adults since 1993. For many years she taught in the Rothberg International School at the Hebrew university in Jerusalem and later on in the Oriental institute in Oxford University in the England.
Having lived in Israel (where she's originally from), Paris, London and now The Hague, Noa is well travelled and well experienced in being an expat. Since moving to The Netherlands, Noa has been well involved in the International community in The Hague.
This experience has given her an insightful understanding of the diversity in culture and needs of people who come from different backgrounds, which translates into her work as trainer in our courses.
Noa is what we like to call: a "product" of our academy. She trained with us throughout her journey of becoming a professional helper and in her work she combines both Counselling and Coaching.
Although strongly believing in our way of working with the humanistic approach to counselling and coaching, Noa has been interested in many other methods of the profession and is constantly expanding and broadening her professional knowledge.
She'll be sharing all that with you, the students.
Her company NBmove, serves the International community and she's a popular coach and trainer in and amongst the International organisations and companies in and around The Hague.

Els Barkema - Sala
I was born and raised in Holland, but started to explore the world from age 20. Since then I have lived in several European countries, the Middle East and the Far East (including 25 years in Japan). I married, raised two children in Tokyo, divorced, and more recently happily remarried/resettled in my native country.
I have been variously employed in banking, tourism, airline, education, counselling and research; learning several languages and studying extensively, gaining further credentials through the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow (Postgraduate Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling & Master of Philosophy for research in the Department of Educational Studies). In recent years I qualified as Mediator and completed the Specialisation: Existential Psychotherapy.
Having experienced the corporate/ex-pat world both first- and second hand, I frequently managed to adjust to foreign cultures as well as an even more difficult readjustment to my own culture after prolonged absence.
As counsellor/psychotherapist I have worked in Tokyo, Glasgow and Holland in settings such as a public counselling and private practice, student counselling, Social Work and NHS Health Centres - with clients from all walks of life and with diverse problems. Currently too, clients are from many backgrounds/nationalities and present with the great variety of issues that human beings can encounter. As trainer for ACC I have worked in the Hague and more recently started groups in Leiden; I have also provided supervision and counselling to students from other groups or counselling courses in English or Dutch.
The BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy guides me with the highest professional standards possible.
