WHAT IS INTEGRAL COACHING
INTEGRAL COACHING SEES THE UNIQUENESS IN EVERY PERSON
Every person has a unique constellation of essential qualities, personality structures, and social strategies. That’s why it’s important to get an accurate and complete understanding of your strengths and limitations. Your hopes and fears. What it is you want and why you want it.
That’s exactly what integral coaching does. It allows me to address your topic and how it is related to the various dimensions of your being very effectively. And support sustainable growth where it is most important to you.
“Integral Coaching provides what we believe is the most complete and comprehensive coaching method available.”
HOW IT WORKS
We start with an ‘intake’ conversation. Together we deeply explore your topic and why it is important to you. Based on that information I will design a coach program that is custom-made for you. This we will discuss and adjust where needed in our second ‘offer’ conversation, to make sure that it really fits for you.
Initially being in this program will help you to become aware of the way you currently relate to your topic. Seeing this clearly – it’s qualities and it’s limitations – is crucial. Then, through a step-by-step process you will learn to disengage from what is no longer useful, and start building new competencies. Those that allow you to move forward through ‘cycles-of-development’. While growing into and embodying your ‘new-way-of-being’, you begin to actualize the life you long for.
INTEGRAL COACHING PROVIDES SUSTAINABLE RESULTS
It’s work, not magic. But it’s work that enables you to confidently direct your actions towards the goals you have chosen and start living your deeper purpose.
Being engaged in an integral coach program with me is like a journey that we travel together. In our coaching relationship integrity, trust, and open communication are essential. As your guide it’s my responsibility to have an embodied understanding of the integral approach and commit to an integral lifestyle.
“Martin supported me during an important phase in my life, and without his coaching I’m sure I wouldn’t have passed through so successfully. I’m very grateful for that, it enabled me to really change my way of living and relating.”
Sven Heijdenrijk – ambulatory assistance provider
continueThere was a lot going on at that time and I had no control over my life. I often felt overwhelmed and out of balance. Martin made me aware that in my situation it was very important to ground myself and allow my experience to touch me and own it. Also in a very practical way he helped me to organise my daily life, create moments for processing and self-reflection and physical exercises. And he coached me to clearly communicate my needs to those around me.
What I have found to be enormously valuable in Martin’s coaching is the variety of exercises and practices that touched on all areas of my life and were meant for me to integrate in my daily routine. This integral approach is definitely not just about talking and thinking. In my case attending to my body played a key role. I’m not an expert, but in my experience it was the combination of all the different aspects of the coaching program that brought about a lasting behavioural change. And the practices Martin gave me now are an indispensable part of my life.
Much has changed: circumstances not only determine what I do. I stand at the helm of my ship and choose my own course. I am much more stable and not thrown of balance easily. I notice it in working with my clients; they feel they can rely on me. Before I needed more time to recover from difficult situations, now I can take on a lot more and still have enough energy. And I’m much more aware of my inner life and emotions, which makes my life richer and more intense.”
