Photography in Coaching Course
Dates of the upcoming edition: 4 January – 22 February, 2024
Discover the benefits of how we can create stories that inspire us to live our lives.
Photography in Coaching is a powerful approach to transforming your beliefs and becoming visible to yourself.
There is something very unique about Photography in our lives nowadays. We all take photos and communicate through them every day. Every vital moment or relationship is in a snap.
We can use these photos in Coaching to integrate continuity of our biographies, connect to our wisdom, strengths, intuition. Pictures from life give us access to inner information that is stored in the unconscious or forgotten. We can use active Photography to inspire and learn new habits. Photography creates transformative moments.
