Systemic Coaching

Systemic coaching deals with the way you feel and act in certain situations. By looking at these feelings and reactions, and how to accept or change them, we can help you improve your situation.

 

I offer down-to-earth, reflective coaching, whereby the main idea aim is the result and the coaching methods are used to support the process. It is my goal that my clients, whether private people, managers or employees, find clarity for their situation. In this I am a neutral partner who is interested in your future and who listens


Possible topics are:

  • Finding new solutions for what feels like a standstill
  • Examining your own leadership role
  • Conflict between your role at work and home
  • Analysing your professional situation, when you doubt if you are the right person for this job

What you can expect:

  • Clarity about where you are now and what is causing your dissatisfaction.
  • Together we develop a concrete plan so that you can start into a new future.

Acceptance and Commitment Coaching

To support and complement Systemic coaching, I use methods from ACT Coaching.

 

ACT Coaching is a way to look at your values and how to harmonise these with the way you work and live. It also helps you to accept that bad things happen and so it is better to live with them, rather than fight or ignore them.

 

Running away from a problem only increases the distance to the solution. The easiest way to escape a problem is to solve it.

My Coaching Style

I moved into coaching, because I am convinced it is a method of helping clients to improve their lives in some way; be this by making decisions, changing their habits, or accepting the way things are.

 

During my coach training it became clear there is no one solution or method for all problems. The coaching sessions since then have taught me to be prepared to change my “plan” to the needs of the client during a coaching.

 

Coaching cannot guarantee success. Both the coach and the coachee have their limits, so should either have the feeling that things aren’t working, alternative methods or a change of coach should be discussed.

 

My coaching methods move between systemic-analysis and the creative-association. Deciding which method to use depends on the client and the subject to be discussed. Some people prefer to talk things through, some like an impulse through pictures or text; others can work better with lists. Which is best for the client is the one we feel is bringing results.

 

Coaching isn’t a cosy chat over coffee. It is important to realise that in most coaching forms, there is a risk of provocation. Nobody likes to admit that they may be the one who is at fault. Coaching is there to hold a mirror for the client, to detail the problem and look for a solution. This may mean looking in corners that the client has been avoiding, but this can be done in a sensitive and careful way.

 

My life-philosophy is to accept that each of us is responsible for our own destiny in as far as we can control it. Not everything can be changed, in coaching I help to find how to change something, or how to live with it. Both let the client move forward.

 

The length and methods in a coaching series can only be estimated after the initial talk, therefore to give both sides a fixed framework, a contract with running-time, costs etc. will be signed by both parties before starting a coaching.

If you are not sure what to expect, contact me for a goal-defining initial meeting.

Coaching Rooms

For coaching, I use rooms in Buxtehude, e.g. Flethraum, and Hamburg, e.g. in collaboration with Lilienhof Coworking.
