- Feeling limited by your own negative thoughts and feelings (mostly about yourself).
- Stuck in a pattern or way of thinking from your past
- Stress and burn-out related complaints at work
- In need for more clarity and structure when facing difficult choices
- A sense of restlessness, dissatisfaction, powerlessness or fear because you do not seem able to change a difficult situation by yourself.
It's only a small list of reasons why people choose coaching.
In whatever situation you find yourself, the starting point-is that you are open to change. Coaching can help to define your goals and impact, to develop yourself and to develop better interpersonal skills and find more peace throughout your life.
"Because Maarten listens well, is honest and does not form an opinion, I could discuss my fears and thoughts without shame, he asked the right questions and gave an overview, he showed how tension works in the body and made my 'problem' concrete."
The working method
From awareness to sustainable change
Conversations are the foundation of your coaching. I support this with practical exercises and targeted home assignments to bring you step by step, closer to your goals. My coaching is radically empathetic and pragmatic, which means that my intuitive method employs a number of different methods, such as Voice Dialogue, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), NLP and transactional analysis (TA). The content of your coaching program we adapt to your situation and goals.
No mather the situation, sustainability in results are the foundation. A process therefore does not always stop when an end goal is reached. It can also stop when you have the fertile ground and are ready to independently reach the goal.
To achieve sustainable impact, we first investigate what the goal (change) should be like. A clear goal consists of 4 elements. It is attractive, urgent, measurable and achievable.
We research the following: What makes that you have not yet succeeded? What is it that's obstructing you?
- From awareness you will explore the choice. A choice always consists of 3 options:
is my situation changeable | 2. is my situation acceptable? 3. what if I leave?
What actions do you take based on your choice? Celebrate the successes, big and small, that you make in the process of change and movement.
A trajectory ends when you have the foundation from which you can reach your goal yourself.
