Assistance in and with nature

Learn how to feel
good again

"99% of all people have a common goal: to feel good in life! The challenge now is to find out what that means for each individual. This is exactly where a coaching helps me with."

(Dirk Stegner)

Reasons for nature-based coaching

Everyone already has the solution to his problems within himselve, but sometimes needs a little help to be able to recognize and use them. The coaching actively supports you in developing your own resources and skills. For more courage, strength and joie de vivre. Reasons for a coaching can be, for example:

reduce fears and anxieties

The psychological “problem dimmer effect”, which occurs automatically in most people when being outdoors, can be further strengthened in a targeted manner through coaching in order to more easily build up the strength to take the first step out of the incipient cycle of fear.

self-discovery and personal development

Nature-based coaching can help to explore one's own strengths, values and goals, strengthen personal resources and promote individual development.

stress management and burnout prevention

A natural environment mostly promotes inner peace and clarity. Easy-to-learn techniques for reducing stress and strategies for "emergency" help to deal with stressful situations.

intuition and decision-making

Nature can serve as a source of inspiration to gain clarity when making decisions. Nature-based coaching helps to look at different perspectives, to use intuition sensibly in everyday life and to be able to make authentic decisions.

work-life balance

Nature-based coaching can help to find a balance between work and personal life. Nature offers space for reflection and supports setting priorities and drawing healthy boundaries.

mindfulness and presence

Mother nature invites you to be in the moment and to sharpen your senses. Mindfulness exercises can be carried out to strengthen awareness of the environment and one's own experience.

How does it work?

The exact course of the coaching can vary depending on the clients needs. Basically, nature-based coaching follows the following structure:

Change of perspective: A changed perspective helps to recognize facts better.

Quite naturally: coaching in a trusting and safe environment.
  • Trust is the beginning of everything. Therefore, we get to know each other better at the beginning of the coaching and talk about your goals, expectations and possible topics. Here it can also be clarified whether nature coaching is basically the right method for you.

  • During the initial consultation, we also deal in detail with your current situation, the desired target situation and determine the further steps resulting from this.

  • The actual coaching sessions then take place at selected locations. Targeted awareness and relaxation exercises, the detection and elimination of mental blockages as well as the practice of stress and anxiety-relieving methods are the focus of our joint sessions.

  • Then it's up to you to implement it. In addition to the individual coaching sessions, you continue to 'work' on your topics at home (or better outside in nature). You implement the exercises and individual steps discussed together on your own and with the support of the techniques you have learned.

  • We also regularly check the progress you have made during the coaching sessions. This not only supports the positive experience of one's own development, but also helps to overcome any phases of doubt or frustration that may arise.

Offer overview

How long and in which rhythm?

The individual coaching appointments usually take between 1 1/2 and 2 hours. How many appointments are 'necessary' varies from case to case. You always decide for yourself when and whether you want to make another appointment.

Experience has shown that weekly or 14-day rhythms are recommended at the beginning. After about 3-5 appointments, it is usually sufficient to only resort to appropriate coaching 'sessions' if necessary.

nature-based coaching online

The home coaching

use modern technology usefully

Due to physical distances or other reasons, it is sometimes not possible for us to meet in person for a coaching. Thanks to modern telecommunications technology, however, this is not an obstacle. You can also use my offers in this way. A useful combination of technology and nature makes this possible.

Perfectly combined: online coaching session, nature on your doorstep.

How does online coaching work?

For the first consultation, we 'meet' via online meeting and discuss your concerns in a relaxed matter. Then I will create individual exercises and coaching units for you, which you can simply load onto your mobile phone or MP3 player and take with you into the forest. Even if I am not traveling with you personally, you can rely on my support. In this way we combine our online appointments with the necessary deepening outside in nature.

Frequent questions and answers

Do I need special software for this?

The free Zoom software is used for the online meetings. You can easily download these for all common PC, tablet or mobile operating systems from

Is there a non-binding opportunity to get to know each other?

Yes. Basically, after the first 20 minutes of the call, you have the option of ending the session at no additional cost. So you can be sure that you don't have to buy 'a pig in a poke'.

How long does an individual sessions last?

Depending on the topic, between 1 and 1.5 hours.

Is this form of coaching suitable for everyone?

Basically yes, but I reserve the right to reject the online coaching format in individual cases. Personal support on site can be a more usefull choice, especially for anxious people.

How do I get the audio files? Is there personal online access?

As a client, you receive individual access to my online platform and can download the required individual audio files in MP3 format from your password-protected area.

Are our conversations / my data safe too?

Our conversations are in no way digitally recorded or electronically stored. Only your personal data will be processed and stored strictly in accordance with the specifications of the General Data Protection Regulation.

The individual audio files are also protected accordingly and can only be accessed with a user name and password.

Is online coaching cheaper?

In principle, the same prices apply to this form of coaching as to normal coaching. Due to the fact that there are no travel costs, for example, the total effort is of course somewhat lower here.

Is it also possible that I am in the forest during the online session?

Basically yes, but you should definitely check before the appointment whether there is a stable connection for your mobile phone or tablet.
