What is important in it for you?
As a coach, you probably want to make the coaching you do stand out as memorable, inspire your clients to authenticity, unblock thoughts and emotions. Photographs make it easier and faster. I’ve been using photos and clients’ snapshots for a couple of years already and I’m always amazed how they are very helpful in enhancing self-reflection and deeper insight, finding new perspectives, giving the voice to intuition, the raise of emotions and lead to engagement, ‘aha’ moments. They also help to break the ice and get out of a rut.
Description of the course:
The course designed for coaches, therapists, and art therapists, social workers, counsellors. It is a 3-day fully experiential course in using photos and photo-taking in Coaching and Personal Development in order to deepen insights, catalyze communication, and increase motivation to change.
