Coaching is a popular and respected methodology that is useful both for work, in effective communication and in goal setting of all kinds.

The purpose of coaching is for individuals to experience richer purpose, happiness in life, victory and harmony. Coaching is a forum for wisdom, respect & trust and aims for the coach to support the goal seeker in taking full responsibility and control over their own life and well-being with self-care as a guiding principle.

Coaching is rooted in reputable disciplines, including positive psychology, leadership, policy, sports science, cognitive behavioral therapy (HAM), psychiatry, psychotherapy, existential psychology, pedagogy and NLP.

Coaching is for anyone who has ambitions to get more out of life and flourish - those who, with the support of coaches, want to harness their inner wisdom & strength to turn a dream into reality in any area of life, for example regarding health promotion (health coaching) ), communication, studies & jobs, work-life balance, increased joy of life and increased quality of life.

The subject of coaching mainly revolves around seeking answers to the following questions:

  • Who am I (really)?
  • What do I want (really)?
  • Why do I want this?
  • How do I define success? What is success for me?
  • How do I achieve my goals in a constructive, effective and fun way?
  • What is my purpose in life, play and work? What did I come to learn and what am I going to leave behind?
