Frequently Asked QuestionsPersonal Coaching
What is Coaching?
Coaching is a relationship in which the Coach gives you the inspiration needed to create the life you want, through honest and purposeful conversations. The Coach helps you break the self-limiting patterns and establish motivating and challenging aspirations. You bring the need: the Coach brings the methodology to help you make it happen.
What is NLP Coaching?
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is the art and science of human excellence. It takes coaching to a whole new level, allowing for faster and more effective change. It is a pragmatic school of thought, with the main purpose of making explicit models of human excellence by understanding the mental and cognitive processes behind behavior.
Your NLP Coach will be able to help you change in all levels of human experience, more effectively and faster than a conventional coach or therapist. You can learn more about NLP Coaching here.

What are some typical reasons someone might work with a Coach?
You might choose to work with a coach for many reasons, including but not limited to the following:
- Something urgent, compelling or exciting is at stake (a challenge, stretch goal or opportunity)
- A gap exists in knowledge, skills, confidence or resources
- A desire to accelerate results
- A lack of clarity with choices to be made
- Success has started to become problematic
- Work and life are out of balance, creating unwanted consequences
- Negative emotions burden you
Another way to put is that Coaching is for those who:
- Are not clear about what they want in life,
- Although knowing what they want, they don’t know how to get it,
- Although knowing how to get it, they are either paralized or procrastinate,
- Although they have tried, they can’t get it,
- Even after getting what they want, it does not seem to bring them peace and happiness.
How long does a Coach work with a person?
The length of a coaching relatioship varies depending on the individual’s needs and preferences. For certain types of focused coaching, 1 to 3 sessions could be enough. Usually, and depending on the topic, a 4 to 10 session program would allow for outstanding change and achieving difficult goals. However, you might want to extend the coaching relationship for several months, if there is significant inbalance in the different life areas, such as health, work/life balance, relationships, finances or recreation; or if the goal is a long term goal.
Factors that may impact the length of time include: the types of goals, the ways individuals or teams prefer to work, the frequency of coaching meetings and financial resources available to support coaching.
Where does the coaching take place?
If you live in Amsterdam, or happen to be here, Coaching sessions take place in one of our four locations:
How can we coach you if you don't live in Amsterdam?
That’s not a problem. Coaching can also take place via online video-conference. You just need to have a good reliable internet connection. We can also do it on the phone, although it is more difficult for the coach to get a good idea of how you’re thinking at any given moment. So that is our last resort.
