What Our Clients Say

“The Ontological Coaching program is built on a solid theoretical foundation and the combined approach of working with language, emotions & the body has transformed my approach to coaching. The experience will change your life and open up an enriching opportunity of exploration and development. Not only is it helping my business by bringing in some original ideas …. It’s changing my way of being and its opening up new long-term career development options.”           

Andrew O'Shea, Ireland

“This is undoubtedly the best investment I have ever made in my career and life generally. The Ontological Coaching and Leadership Program has supported me end-to-end through a massive transition in my life circumstances and way of being, and I am very grateful for the opportunity to have participated in such a profoundly meaningful program. It is extremely gratifying to see the positive impact that the ontological approach has had on my clients in the relatively short time that I have been applying it.”

Chyonne Kreltszheim, Australia

“The Ontological Coaching and Leadership Program is one of the best and most intense programs I have done so far. It is valuable for every coach and trainer and provides helpful concepts, methods and techniques. Especially the concept of our way of being, helped me to develop myself and my way of coaching. I can’t imagine to not work on all three levels (language, body and emotions) anymore. The program will change your life and it will help you to become more successful in whatever you want to achieve.”

Stefanie Thies, Germany
