What is coaching?
Coaching goes back to the English word “coach”. What today is the bus used to be the coach, i.e. a base on wheels whose direction and speed is defined by the coachee, i.e. the coachman. Taking a coach is faster than walking, for example. We see ourselves as clarification agents and enablers who help you advance (faster). You will perceive us as sensitive and challenging, knowledgeable and intuitive with a wealth of experience. When you are looking for the right coach for you, a healthy balance of mutual agreement and friction at a ratio of 80:20 will be more important than the method the coach relies on.
Coaching/therapy/training - what exactly is the difference?
Unlike therapy, which is about working on the past and integrating it into the present, coaching is about activating the client’s potential and optimally using it to achieve future goals. We sometimes use a range of models, for instance from communication psychology, to illustrate certain behavioural patterns or interactions and their impacts. Training content is commonly conveyed through models, explanations and exercises. Yet training is different from coaching mainly in that its structure and content are pre-defined. Participants take home whatever they are able to transfer.
We use the systemic approach in principle. In other words, we assume that clients subconsciously already know the solution that is best for them. Our task is to uncover this knowledge by asking the right questions and harness it. The systemic approach in coaching takes account of a client’s origin, life situation, experiences and environment, in other words the system in which (s) he belongs. It dissolves mental blocks and integrates the themes in a way that changes/improves things in the long run. Our clients are able to transfer and apply their bespoke solutions to similar and future scenarios.
Hypnosis in coaching
Many people are unaware of the power the images in their heads have. This is where hypnosis in coaching comes into play. It starts where conscious thinking stops and accesses the potential of the subconscious mind. Guided relaxation exercises activate other brain areas, which enhances creativity and creates positive experiences. Hypnosis in coaching works at a level other than the cognitive level. Clients who attend hypnosis coaching describe their experiences as more profound, freeing and easier to implement.
Resonance method as it is employed in coaching
People who live their emotions, thoughts and actions and stay true to themselves at the same time live in resonance. In other words, they are one with themselves and their environment, which enables them to enjoy holistic health and live in harmony with others.
We start with helping you discover and free the power and potential within you.
“Everything lies in us” is a major principle of the NLP-Resonanzmethode® (resonance method). Coaches working with this method have a very positive basic attitude towards life. Free of expectations, they encourage and respect the coachee. Together with the coachee, coaches discover, transform and manifest the potential and power within the coachee. Unlike other forms of therapy the NLP resonance method is not confined to thoughts based on language and beliefs, but always incorporates the non-verbal, image level of the subconscious mind as well.
