at your service

de Courten Solutions assists its clients in Switzerland, in person or remotely (by video conference if necessary), in English, French and Hebrew.

“Peace does not mean an absence of conflicts; differences will always be there. Peace means solving these differences through peaceful means; through dialogue, education, knowledge; and through humane ways”.
