The AHAVA approach
How does Ina work?
Respect and integrity will be the framework of an open and dynamic working relationship.
Respect for your identity, for your background -
Integrity will show in an open mind and no discrimination against race, gender, sexual preference, ethnicity or wealth. Ina won’t do anything that goes against her values and integrity and she will be clear about this.
Ina will be your ‘neutral outsider on the inside’ available to talk with you about the pros and cons of the choices you want to make, to make sure to cover all bases before you commit; Ina will try to read between the lines and hear between the words.
Ina feels as responsible for a good outcome as you are; she will try her utmost to avoid regrets afterwards!
Together with you she wants to get it right, for you and those near and dear to you.
