• Mental coaching

    - Focus action on what is important to you -

Do you recognise this?

Worrying at night, sleeping badly, fear of the future. Struggle with work-life balance. Often being tired, not indicating boundaries in time. Difficulty taking decisions. Being entangled in difficult thoughts or memories. A hunted feeling. Stress at work. Insufficient focus, not achieving what you want. Reduced concentration, less self-confidence and willpower. Doing things that limit or make life worse in the long run.

It is not the things themselves that are frightening, but our thoughts about them.

The Greek philosopher Epictetus

Epictetus already recognised in 60 AD that our feelings and behaviour are largely determined by our thoughts - and we can change them. People have a much greater influence on their thoughts, emotional reactions and behaviour than we usually want to believe. Our (sub-)consciousness and our way of thinking strongly influences our feelings, our actions and our behaviour. And we can very well change this way of thinking into constructive thoughts and convictions.

For whom?

The questions for mental coaching can be very diverse. The following goals are common:

Improving work-life balance
Facing Corona
Stress related complaints
Sustainable employability coaching
Vitality issues

What does a coaching process look like?

  • Intake
    With an intake interview and (physical) test you gain insight into your fitness, beliefs, functioning and motives. We use tests such as Disk, a model that maps out human behaviour and motives, and The Positive Health model (spider's web) This is an individual conversation tool, a moment of reflection. What is my situation now and what would I like to change?
  • Obtaining informed consent
  • Formulate tasks and a realistic goal.
    If this is not clear, you will rarely achieve it.
  • Sparring on the themes you encounter
    To realise your goals
  • Motivating and inspiring you
    What steps have you taken? Or not? Both are interesting.
  • Body-oriented exercises and exercise
    Focused on regulating stress, creativity and trusting your feelings

Which coaching techniques are used?

There are various coaching techniques that we use during a coaching process. Substantiated, goal-oriented and methodical:

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
    You learn to deal with the obstacles you encounter in your life in a flexible way, so that you can focus your attention on valuable things.
  • Rational Effectiveness Training
    You learn to recognise irrational, negative thoughts and to replace them with rational, supportive thoughts.
  • Motivational Interviewing
    This method increases the intrinsic motivation for change.
  • Exercise therapy and (outdoor) movement
    Exercise therapy and movement make a crucial contribution to recovery, for example in the case of overburdening and burn-out complaints.

The result

  • Personal leadership. The ability to lead and direct yourself. 
  • Inadequate, damaging feelings and behaviour can be recognised in time and converted into adequate, helpful and constructive reactions.
  • You focus your energy on things that really make a difference to you.
  • You can deal more effectively with difficult situations and emotions.
  • More peace in your body, a better condition.

Duration of the coaching

Duration of the coaching: 1.5 hours per meeting. Average number of meetings: 3 - 5 The frequency of the appointments is attuned to the coaching question and is determined in mutual consultation. Extension of the number of sessions is possible.

Thanks to the Mental Coaching, I have learned to let go, to allow things. It gives me peace of mind to know that I always have a choice, whatever that choice may be. I have become a more balanced person and happy with myself.
