What is Outdoor Life Coaching?
Life coaching in nature is a refreshing new way of coaching. We walk whilst talking with your question and situation as starting point. Nature will actively be incorporated in each session.
Walking in nature helps you to become quiet in your mind. Nature is restful, therefore you will be able to listen better to your inner voice, there where you can find all the answers to your questions. While walking, your body moves. Everything that is stuck in your mind, will more easily start to clear. A conversation that takes place in the open, offers space for moments of silence and reflection.
Outside in nature, you will literally and figuratively move outside your own world and paths. You will step into a new environment, set foot on new tracks, look over new views, discover new horizons. Therefore you will be more easily receptive for new experiences, views and initiatives.
Nature offers not only a tranquil environment for stillness and reflection, it also offers endless possibilities to work with metaphors and symbols. Working with symbols will deepen the process of awareness instantly and lead invariably to new insights and profound breakthroughs.
Swinging you out of your comfort zone is not my way of coaching. Rather, I believe in a natural course of the process. Exploring boundaries together, creating space and finding tools, so that you can take steps yourself with confidence, no matter how exciting that can be sometimes.
Your coaching question can be about anything. About what’s on your mind right now in your life. No question is too big or too small. It’s about getting your mind to flow again and experiencing new perspective and being able to take steps. About being able to grow and develop again.
Knowing others is intelligence. Knowing yourself is true wisdom.
~ Lao Tzu
After the introduction, which is the intake, you can decide whether nature based coaching is what you may be looking for. A coaching trajectory consists of approximately 5 consecutive walks (of about 2 hours), following a proven and effective method. You will determine the pace. Together, we will embark on a journey of discovery, to find answers and sustainable solutions to your coaching question.
Not everyone is in need of an entire coaching trajectory. It can already provide you with light and space to share your story during a single session with someone who has no judgement about it. Who listens attentively to you and does not want to ‘fix’ anything. But also if you need to list or clarify issues. There are always insights, inspiration and answers arising that you could not have imagined in your head in advance. Providing you clarity and bringing about lasting change.
