PSYCHOLOGICAL AND LIFE COACHING
are methods of working with personal (development) topics. The coach acts as a colleague, guide and partner to the client. Using the right questions, the coach shows and offers the clients new points of view and helps to deepen their understanding of things and situations (what I want, what do I care for, what is it that I really do not want…). The coach also supports clients in identifying their resources that are needed in order to execute their goals and wishes. The main goal of a coach is to boost clients’ thinking and inspire them so they can maximise their individual potential.
Coaching is not a psychotherapy, yet it can have very similar effects. The coaching goals are not reached by applying psychological or psychotherapeutic theories, but the clients achieve them through utilising their own existing potential.
