mr. drs. Caroline Kloppers

Caroline Kloppers is both a psychologist and former-lawyer. This background offers an ideal framework for her mediation style which involves a practical solution-oriented approach, always focusing on the people and organisations involved.

Conflicts offer opportunities. Caroline Kloppers helps her clients to discover their underlying wishes and needs in the conflict. The solutions often turn out to be positive for all parties involved and protracted and expensive court proceedings can be avoided. Moreover, the solutions are sustainable because it is the parties involved who come up with the solutions. Time to move on!

Caroline Kloppers studied Dutch law and psychology at the Radboud University Nijmegen and has been a MfN-registermediator since 2005. She is also IMI certified.  Caroline has been helping to find conflict solutions for 25 years, initially as a lawyer and since 2005 also as a (business) mediator.
