Coaching is an effective method of personal and professional development aimed at enabling the client to fulfil their potential, increase personal satisfaction and acquire skills to improve performance. In this process, the coach plays the role of a facilitator and assistant in realizing this potential and activating it. The specific focus of the coaching is adapted to the needs and goals of the client in accordance with the intents of the order party and takes place in the mutual interaction and active cooperation between the coach and the coachee. The relationship between coach and coachee is based on partnership and joint efforts to achieve the set goals. Coaching therefore assumes that the client is willing to take responsibility in achieving their goals.
Coaching can help you with personal goals that you would like to fulfil, with problematic situations that need to be addressed. It works with the awareness of the barriers that limit us and the search for partial steps that will lead to the goal. Coaching will also be useful for you when you are on the threshold of changes that you want to think through, clarify your priorities and prepare well before you embark on your journey. Coaching will help you discover, clarify, and evaluate your goals and opportunities both professionally and personally, as well as create the steps that will lead to their fulfilment. It brings the confidence that change is possible, the energy and inner satisfaction that emerges every time we succeed in transforming visions into reality.
All our coaches are well educated and participate in regular supervision and further development. You have the opportunity to choose a coach based on their profile with whom you will have a free zero session of about 30 minutes, and only then you decide whether you wish to continue with coaching.
I have been actively involved in coaching for 20 years. As I combine effective elements of various psychological directions, and use psychological knowledge and skills to appropriately individualise my practice, I am a representative of psychological coaching. I am also involved in coaching didactically - I lecture coaching at the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Arts of Charles University, Prague, and I conduct coaching training. I am accredited within the Czech Association of Coaches as a Level III coach - Accredited Professional Senior Coach (ASC).
I wrote a book about the psychology of self-coaching called The Tale of the Lost Landscape. In addition to coaching, I have completed a variety of psychotherapy training and have a psychotherapy practice, mainly focused on crisis intervention. One of my greatest strengths is my ability to inspire people for personal growth.
My professional career started in the field of economics and business, later I focused more on the study of psychology and communication. I moved into a corporate environment, gaining experience in retail and then into HR and education, as a facilitator and coach. I also visited the IT start-up space and have been developing people through coaching for almost a decade.
My goal in coaching is to find the energy together, to discover the hidden motivation while enjoying the moments when new practices and ideas are born.
I embrace the idea that the coach holds the process, the coachee creates the content, and we both work together to achieve a set goal.
Sharing my clients joy and satisfaction with overcoming their goals and obstacles is what I love about coaching the most. Having experienced what coaching can do first hand, I truly believe that what seemed impossible yesterday can tomorrow be reality for anyone. I prefer to work with the clients who have enough courage to admit to themselves their areas for development. The rest is in the process. Using psychological coaching, working with body, emotions, motivation and synectics, I help my clients overcome their fears and focus on the things that they feel are truly important for them. Happiness is the art of being satisfied. Together we will set on a journey to rediscover this art.
I firmly believe in the ability of each individual to take responsibility for their life and their decisions, which I also consider to be the fundamental pillars of coaching. What I like about coaching is the freedom, openness and the ability to choose your own path. In practice, I benefit from my psychological training and natural curiosity. I like to continue to develop and educate myself, and I learned coaching through, among other things, a career coaching course at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver.
I am also involved in coaching from an academic perspective. As part of my doctoral studies in the Department of Managerial Psychology and Sociology at the University of Economics and Business, I have worked on several grants and research projects focused on coaching. Among other things, I have collaborated on European-wide research on coaching, I actively participate in international conferences in the field of coaching and I am writing my dissertation on coaching.
Coaching is an upward glance for me. Sometimes our routine journeys to work, to the shops, for a Sunday walk, can become so familiar that they become stale, and we stop seeing what we first found fascinating about them.
Coaching allows us to find the uniqueness in our routines, just as it teaches us to look up, or down the side alleys, which may be deadlocks but also can have the most precious treasures waiting for us inside them.
In the coaching process, these treasures materialise for us in the form of "aha moments." As a coach, I am most excited to share these moments with my clients when I see the glow of determination, courage and confidence in their eyes. Often, we look to others for answers, yet the best answers lie within ourselves. I look forward to journeying together in search of your treasures.
I got into coaching through sports coaching in 2005 where I worked with professional athletes and sports teams. Since 2011, I have also been coaching "non-sports" clients. I enjoy working with people who are eager to find pathways to a happy life, which requires making changes to oneself, and I enjoy every success we have together. I love connecting body, mind and spirit and helping my clients find what they really want and enjoy. I also like to combine coaching with other supportive methods to help speed up the coaching process. I love to help you find your own truth, which frees you from fear, allowing you to make free choices and therefore live a happy life.
My first experience with coaching was when I studied Psychology at Charles University and then at Middlesex University in London, when we practically learned how to coach. I believe that coaching is an effective method of personal development. I see it as a wonderful process of support in achieving goals in a safe environment. Coaching as questions that inspire both reflection and self-reflection. Coaching as deep listening. Coaching as contact and work with energy. Coaching as a moment in the here and now. I enjoy combining coaching techniques with mindfulness and I think that people enjoy doing what they see as meaningful. For me, the purpose of coaching is to help clients find their own ways of solving things. I will be happy to explore this important meaningfulness of your own goals with you.
I like to marvel at how quickly well-crafted plans can come to fruition. So what is there really to wish for? For me, coaching is a deeply human encounter in partnership where I support the client in their self-realization, performance in alignment with self and most importantly, in taking meaningful life steps. I help to bring to consciousness the true motives, one's own dormant abilities and increase their utilization. I combine my psychological training and elements of different directions (finding meaningfulness and inner consent, imagery, body work, etc.) according to the needs of the client. Self-awareness, joy, fulfilment and growth are important to me - yours as much as my own. I will listen to you, support you, bring suggestions and insights from psychology and other related disciplines into the coaching. And also rejoice with you.
Coaching appealed to me as an energising form of developing potential and I have been involved in it for over 12 years. I extend my practice over 650 hours as an internal and external coach. I work with individual clients and small teams. I also provide psychological intervention, personal and professional consultation and therapeutic interviewing.
In coaching, I work with clients to rediscover their own resources, their path to self. I believe that we can all lead happy and fulfilled lives, we just need to have the courage to ask questions. During this process, I guide clients and with the support of coaching techniques, help them uncover their answers and solutions. Coaching is a great tool to achieve your goals, continuously improve and deepen the quality of your life. I deal with topics according to the client's wishes and needs. Most often personal effectiveness, decision making, harmony in work and personal life, stress management and more.
I first encountered coaching in the role of a client and also as part of my studies at the Faculty of Arts at Charles University. This experience led me to complete my own psychological training in coaching under the guidance of doc. MUDr. Mgr. PhDr. Radvan Bahbouh Ph.D. Currently, I use coaching not only when I am working with my clients but also in my managerial role, where I complement different leadership styles with a coaching approach that deepens self-reflection and is a great tool for empowering people.
I believe that everyone is an expert on themselves, and the only one who really knows you is you. Psychological coaching only helps you uncover your potential and sources of energy, and supports your desire to meet your personal and professional goals. I see the role of a coach as a guide, your fan and supporter on your journey of (self)development.
I first encountered coaching from the position of a client who needed support in finding the best solutions in organizing work. I had such a great opportunity to experience the process for myself and was amazed at how far coaching has taken me. My own experience was the biggest impetus that made me decide to join the coaching training with Radvan Bahbouh.
What I like most about the coaching itself is that it is a seemingly simple yet very sophisticated method. I enjoy the constant exploration of new questions and creative techniques that help the client find previously undiscovered possibilities. In addition, coaching helps us to develop our mindfulness of our surroundings and also of ourselves, allowing us to become our own coaches. I believe that coaching is a kind of "fandom" where the coach becomes a fan of their client. I like to be a fan of people who want to work on themselves, and who I can help shift their issues in the same way that coaching has shifted me.
I've been doing psychological coaching for ten years and my experience is that each of us knows exactly what we don't want, but sometimes it's hard for us to express what we really want, what we would really like. Being able to articulate and express our goals and desires is the first step towards achieving them.
I see coaching as a way for us to find the energy and desire to fulfil our professional and personal goals, as an opportunity to start working on ourselves and to realize ourselves in what brings us joy and satisfaction. I then see the role of a coach as a guide on your journey of culminating the ability to become a successful coach to yourself.
