I like to work in nature (outdoor coaching) with a variety of methods for example from systemic coaching, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and hypnotherapy.

Systemic coaching

Every human being is a “system” and at the same time a component of a number of social systems (family, company, organisation, etc.). He/ she is autonomous and self-organised and interacts with other system elements. Systemic coaching reflects the relationships in a system and offers interventions to interrupt detrimental communication patterns and to develop alternatives in thinking, feeling and acting. Thus, a person who changes his or her pattern, as part of the system, can bring about a change in the whole system.

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP)

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) deals with the subjective perception of people and explores the question of how language and communication influence our thoughts and actions. With the help of NLP, the repertoire available for communication can be expanded. New perspectives of perception are conveyed and resources are discovered, activated and anchored.


Hypnotherapeutic techniques help to expand consciousness and activate unconscious solution potentials. Inner images, metaphors, analogies and visions are used. They stimulate creative ideas and bring forth new solutions. Hypnotherapy was shaped in particular by Milton H. Erickson (1901-1980).

Hypnosystemic approach

The hypnosystemic approach combines the basic systemic ideas with hypnotherapy according to Milton H. Erickson. In this way, the client’s “voluntary” and “involuntary” potentials can complement each other and create valuable synergies. This holistic solution-focused approach was developed by Gunther Schmidt, the director of the Milton Erickson Institute in Heidelberg/ Germany.


Embodiment describes the interaction of body and mind. On the one hand, our thinking influences our posture and becomes the stage for our feelings. However, the other way around, our posture can also influence our attitudes and emotions. Thus, in coaching we can involve the body in finding solutions and anchor the activated resources in the body.


Constructivism is based on the assumption that each person interprets and evaluates things according to his or her own world view and thus creates his or her own reality. This world view influences his behaviour. If we have a pre-assumption, we go through the world with corresponding filters and see it become reality (“You see, I knew it would happen like this.”). In coaching, we use this constructively, e.g. to achieve goals.
