What clients say and experience

"Working with Iris changed my life! A friend recommended Iris to me during a time in my life when I was facing multiple challenges and transition simultaneously. From the first intense connection, I felt like she had a magic key to unlock my burdens, pain, and fears so that I could reconnect with my true center. Through subsequent sessions she guided me to sort through the fear, fog and chaos to find clarity, heal my soul, regain confidence, and reignite my spark! Iris has a deep understanding of what it feels like to be human in a world of pressure, high expectations, and uncertainty. Thanks to Iris, I'm a better leader, mother, wife, and friend. Her coaching gave me the tools I need to think differently about situations that arise and how I can respond - or not! I could not give a higher recommendation to those seeking to work on their personal-professional development. With grace and compassion, Iris will carefully guide you to unlock the truest, most open you."

Lori G., Sustainability Driver / Creative Strategist, France

"I highly recommended working with Iris to gain clarity about life goals and priorities -- both personal and professional!! She helped me to develop very practical tools to utilize on a daily basis. We also did very deep work aimed at understanding more clearly the impact of a lifetime's worth of experiences on both personal and professional choices. Most important, Iris's guidance is tailored to the individual. She does not employ a cookie-cutter approach (!) but considers the unique backgrounds of her clients and tailors the work, exercises, and tool-kit development accordingly. She is a counsellor full of compassion and grace!"

"All sustainable success is built on personal performance.

I have got to know Iris as the catalyst to help me build this sound and stable basis for performing at my personal best, and in line with my best self.

Her unique talent in helping people dig as deep as needed into any issues or perceived barriers, and resurface same yet different, at the “next level”, helping people to access, unfold and live their personal potential is something that I greatly appreciate and admire."


Petra S., Head of Global Marketing, Switzerland

I highly recommend Iris as a coach. Key benefits I have experienced are:

  • Working through barriers that have built up over time and in a period of transition have needed to be addressed both personally and professionally
  • Feeling stronger and re-empowered to take new steps personally and professionally
  • Inspired to look at my professional life differently and relieved to be honest about it being a new phase.

"I am truly grateful for Iris's assistance and support with the Balance Report Analysis, and I have no hesitation in recommending her to others who may benefit from her expertise. She is a highly knowledgeable and caring individual who is dedicated to helping others succeed."


Mahmood A.R., Environmenteal Exposure  Assessment Expert, Germany

"Iris is heel betekenisvol voor me geweest als coach en gids op een delicaat kruispunt van mijn leven. Iris heeft me met haar heldere en liefdevolle stijl & aanwezigheid precies daar gebracht waar ik te zijn had. Met goed getimede interventies en creatieve oefeningen heeft ze me weten te raken en doen openen op thema’s waar ik van te leren had. De stijl van Iris is voorwaardenscheppend voor diepe transformatie: ze gaat voor, leeft voor en ze brengt zichzelf in daar waar gewenst voor mijn proces als client en handelt vanuit een duidelijk voelbaar innerlijk kompas.

"Iris has a gift of reaching our deeper selves. Her method is surprising. However, given recent learning on neuroscience and how the brain actually works, one can appreciate why this transformative approach is so impactful.

She's helped me with a big life change, applying for leadership roles, and braving a new path in an uncertain time.

Even after working with Iris for a couple of months, I’d catch myself carrying on ahead of something and thinking: I don’t need a coaching session, ‘I’m good’. Then I’d think again and schedule one because working with Iris makes me ‘great’."

Elizabeth, Policy and Public Affairs Executive, France and Canada

"Iris Patricia Furer has an extraordinary gift and talent which she brings to the table during her transformational coaching work.

What specifically attracted me when we first met was what I would describe as her “Global Citizen” attitude. She looks beyond borders, barriers and limitations, inside and outside of people. This adds a lot of value to people’s wellbeing and to their own personal contribution in this world. 

Her coaching style is discrete, respectful, compassionate and in a weird way fun, too."

EdK - Independent Entrepreneur & Talent Scout, The Netherlands

"Iris gives clear guidance in the process. This allowed me to look at my challenges from another angle, she guided me to another perspective, another state of mind even, in which personal barriers can be overcome. The session with Iris helped me to get to the insight what my family's problems were, and which were mine, that they have their own way to walk, and I have mine. In this ‘unblocked space’ all kinds of possibilities reveal themselves because I am free! My inner qualities emerge because nothing blocks it except my thoughts of disbelief that the abundance can be so great. Getting rid of burdens that aren't mine has so much to do with that. It is now so easy for me to gently push the pile of other people's problems back to where they belong. I have learned that this can be done lovingly, with respect.”
