Answers to your questions
What is Soul-based Coaching?
Soul-based Coaching is a coaching method that was developed by Annemiek van Helsdingen. It is based on Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling (read more about it here), additionally, Annemiek has integrated a gentle way of holding space. The coach only asks questions, "clean questions", which contain no intention, judgement or validation. Only then, the client can open themselves for their inner being and find their own answers.
Because you will find your answers yourself, I will not offer any advice or suggestions. Unless of course, you explicitly ask for them at the end of a session. I trust that you carry everything you need already inside yourself.
Soul-based Coaching focusses very much on your resources and your desired outcome. As your coach, I make sure that your journey always serves the goal that you defined initially. Problems and hurdles will be addressed on the way (but not analysed , diagnosed or treated). You will come out of each session feeling good.
Is gentle coaching not too weak for me to overcome my resistance?
Gentle is not weak. Quite the opposite in fact. In my sessions, I see again and again how a new way of being can show itself only because of this extremely sensitive approach. From the outside, it sometimes seems as if nothing is happening in these moments. For a short while things go completely quiet. But for you as the client, a lot is happening: an inner knot is opening, you take the first steps in a new direction, you reconcile with an unloved part of yourself, you build (or find) the bridge across a ravine and finally arrive at the other side...
An internal process like this takes a little time without interference from outside. At the same time, I hold a safe space for you where this change can take place right here and now. I know nothing more powerful.
What does a typical session look like?
Once you share with me the topic that you want to examine and ideally solve for yourself, I ask you the questions that gently guide you into your inner world. You simply answer whatever comes up for you at that moment. There is no right or wrong. Also, an "I don't know" is perfectly OK. Very often, we arrive at inner pictures (metaphors). They are very welcome and especially powerful in this work.
Sometimes, a session (or parts of it) can feel trance-like. This is because you don't gather the information from your thinking mind, but from your body, or somewhere else.
Very often, the first session already brings new insights and noticeable change on a deep level. This change automatically has ripple effects on your reality.
If you want to begin right now, I invite you to ponder the following question:
"And what would you like to have happen?"
How does online Coaching work?
It is very simple. All you need is a computer, laptop or tablet with a camera and a stable internet connection. A smartphone works too, but it's a lot easier on a larger screen.
At our arranged time, you find a cosy place for yourself where you are completely undisturbed for at least one hour. It's also best to reserve some extra time after the session, so that you can integrate the work without time pressure.
In due time, before our meeting, I will send you a link that leads you directly into our private Zoom room. You can enter via your web browser, or you can download the Zoom app onto your device. It is your choice, both are very easy to use.
How many sessions will I need before I notice some change?
It frequently happens that the client needs just one session to find a solution that is both tangible and effective. This tends to occur when the issue is very present and there is that one seemingly insoluble/invisible knot to untangle.
Often, it takes more sessions, 3 to 5 maybe, in order to give your system the necessary time to integrate single steps.
And sometimes, clients want me to accompany them over a longer period of time.
I promise you one thing, though: we start immediately in the first session with focussed work and you will already experience noticeable change.
What does a Soul-based Coaching session cost?
One session with me (about 60 minutes) costs €130.
When can I get the earliest possible appointment?
Usually within one or two weeks. Simply send me an email, and I will get back to you very soon!
