Personally: Worth knowing about me.
What coaching means to me.
As a graduate in business information technology, I worked for almost 20 years in the internet, IT and consulting business. During this time, I observed how much we have distanced ourselves from who we really are. Maybe it sounds a little bit pathetic, but what I’m thinking of is quite pragmatic. Instead of listening to our inner voice (intuition), using one’s brain is the only accepted method in today's economic and social life. We like to hide our feelings, because we can’t digitize them in apps or evaluated and measure them in ratings or rankings. Humanity will sooner or later get lost, if we go on this way.
The nature-based coaching, in my understanding, offers a very valuable service here, to feel better again and to learn something really important about one’s self. Those who know themselves, will be able to find their own way through the jungle of everyday’s struggle much easier. They will have less fear, stress or pressure in dealing with any difficult situation.
From the beginning.
During a long period in the 1990s I was suffering from panic and anxiety. Since these days the forest was one of a few places where I felt much better. Out there I could recover at least a few hours or a day.
At that time I didn’t really realize the connection between this positive influence and staying outside in nature in its whole depth. From there, it took about 10 years to get the puzzles peaces more and more merged into a complete picture. That was the beginning of my own approach of nature-based coaching.
