The individual coaching sessions, courses and retreats at ESSENCE >> coaching are intended to bring you home to your essential inner qualities, and allow you to live and act from this place. In addition, they focus on making unconscious processes visible so they can be seen as teachers rather than shadows that drive your behavior in unguarded moments. To give you a better overview, your current situation will be reflected back to you and placed within a larger context in a way that is playful, practical, and safe. Because by watching your life from the wings, you can learn to play the leading role with greater awareness.
a changing world
The times we live in require more of our inner development. In a changing world full of distractions, increasingly greater demands are being placed on our capabilities at a personal level. Self-knowledge is essential, because we can only take well-founded decisions if we have an intimate sense of who we are. The difficulty is that we usually only understand a very small part of ourselves. Although we think we know who we are, this knowledge is largely based on the logic of cause and effect, on lessons and experiences in the outside world. But what would reveal itself if we had the courage to look at things from a wider perspective, from a place of not knowing? The coaching method that Felice Derkinderen has developed supports you in bringing to light matters that till now have remained in the shadows so that you can feel, understand and integrate them.
from ambiguity to clarity
Often, we are unaware that our reality is also shaped by our own thoughts, and that these thoughts are based on hidden assumptions. The laws of quantum mechanics have shown that both our inner and outer realities are determined not objectively but subjectively by the one experiencing the reality. But how do you become aware of this inner "filter" that colors your experiences? Fortunately, there are tools you can use to explore your inner world and to bring what you find into focus.
Archetypal images support contemplation, and can be used to explore those areas that lie beneath the surface and to identify inner patterns. This allows a more complete picture to develop, and provides you with a powerful instrument for self-development because of the clarity it brings. Although this clarity is sometimes challenging, it is ultimately liberating. Because true change happens from the inside out. Would you like to experience it yourself?
