Love, live and parent beyond borders.

Experience HARMONY AND CONNECTION in ALL your relationships.

in both countries and within yourself.

Hey, I am Mireille.
Do you feel overwhelmed or stressed out about your life abroad?

(in English or Dutch)

Let me accompany you in your life abroad

Whether you feel frustrated about a decision you are postponing, ashamed about one you already made, nervous about approaching your partner after an argument, overwhelmed how to get clear on both your own or their needs, or you don’t understand why your partner doesn’t receive you with empathy when you speak about your relationship challenges in the work – the clarity you need to navigate this uncomfortable situation, is closer than you imagined.

As a conflict coach and mediator, I help cross-border couples, parents, families and families of former times, deal with communication and relationships challenges and navigate (inner) conflicts through empathy and accompaniment.

I help you help yourself, back into connection and (inner) peace with yourself and others, when you are triggered and feel upset, stressed out, and overwhelmed.

Don’t wait until your wellbeing is compromised.

Your needs matter now. 

(in English or Dutch)

Through the series of coaching sessions with Mireille, I have gained new insights on aspects that I could never see because I was stuck in old patterns. Mireille has helped me clearly see and resolve these blind spots. I started realizing how it helps to respond differently and see the perspective of the other person in order to resolve/prevent problems and conflicts. I became aware of a pattern where I had unrealistic expectations and was filling in thoughts and feelings for the other person. Because of all this, I now experience more inner peace and am able to cope with situations that, before, were very hard for me.

Mireille’s analytical ability and the clear ways of explaining the bottlenecks, allowed me to see and understand what is happening in my relations to others. With her calm way of talking, Mireille made me feel comfortable sharing what is going on in my life.

Are you ready to experience harmony and connection in all your relationships, 

close home or miles away?

At the heart of every conflict we find unmet universal needs. As long as the needs from everyone involved aren’t clarified, the conflict lingers. Hot or cold. Internal or external. Close home or miles away. Your (inner) peace is compromised, until you decide you are no longer willing to experience the stress and choose to resolve the matter. 

The first steps of the path are simple:

Listen long enough to hear the feelings and unmet needs,

create or co-create strategies that take what matters into account,

and follow up on these strategies for a sustainable resolution.

“Trust is accepting the invitation of the other, to explore the unfamiliar inside ourselves.”


Building trust and connection

The four coaching sessions I had with Mireille helped me look at an aspect I felt tensed about. My hope was that my relation to that would change, as well as the way I felt about it. By giving it space and time in these sessions, the deep process empowered me to go deeper and explore more. My perception about all the aspects of my topic changed. Mireille applied Non-violent communication principles, a wonderful approach that we can all benefit from.

Thank you for your empathy and authenticity, Mireille!

With her history as the Head of Design in a Slovenian Advertising Agency and thorough training in Nonviolent Communication, Mireille van Bremen stepped in for me as the ideal coach. By gentle guidance and giving me the space for my own process, our work in four sessions over a period of two months, supported me in making an important step in my career.

I appreciate her understanding of my work within the creative industry, while being able to hear me totally judgement-free. She guided me through a process with concrete steps and action-plans, far beyond standardized “business-coaching” models. This helped me, to follow through a change process and to set free resources, that I could not access enough before being coached by her.

What supported the biggest shift for me in working with Mireille, is her companionship and patience. She offered a compassionate holding of the space, with a continuity of awareness, even if I lost my thread – Not only during the session, where she could hold an incredible amount and still reflect it back accurately, but also week to week, where she was able to hear, retain and offer back information I had shared. She was also skilled in making links and offering perspectives from different angles. I feel excited that she tried things out with me, often offering me a choice around which I would like to try. I experienced an energy of joy, a flow, a fluidity in the way Mireille guided me. Her energy and excitement to explore was infectious, and I experienced her channelling the direction, the flow, of the session to make it even more meaningful.

I value the sense of shared excitement we felt around her seeing the potential in me and helping me to explore it.

About your conflict coach & mediator

Mireille van Bremen

Challenges in life, work and relationships, conflicts and upsetting conversations, are a major source of stress, frustration and pain and too often lead to separation, burn out and an unsatisfying career. 

Though I speak from experience, I feel sad knowing that so, so many people face these hardships in life. Often by themselves or without the accompaniment of an empathic person or support network.

Back in 2006 I emigrated from The Netherlands to Slovenia for love. Some years later I faced post natal depressions, an identity crisis and the start of a burn out while I was leading the design department of an advertising agency. Because of it, I immersed myself deeply in studying all the ins and outs of empathy and Nonviolent Communication, conflict coaching and mediation. I became resourceful in navigating the challenges in my life abroad, resolving conflicts, whether they were internal and related to my decisions, or external and relating to others. While I understand myself a lot better through empathy, I keep making new choices in anticipation on the needs that ask for my attention.

After I separated from my son’s father, I stayed in Slovenia out of love for our son. That separation meant we needed to resolve many issues – and we did, without one conflict.

A year later I left work with a large burn out and needed almost a year to recover, while also slowly building up a visual empathy training and graphic recording business, The Visual Mediator. I am now maintaining a healthier relationship with myself and with others, regardless of where we live and what our cultural background is.
