Photography in Coaching Course – Inspire Your Clients to Authenticity, Unblock Thoughts & Emotions

Is your professional GOAL to always become A BETTER COACH?

What creative tools and techniques do you use to make the coaching stand out as memorable? What results are possible when you introduce new stimuli into your work? How do you break the ice, get out of a rut, shift perspective and create aha moments?

Look, PHOTOGRAPHY IS THE LANGUAGE OF TODAY. The human brain is engaged by visuals. Research shows that when our brain detects images, dopamine is produced which increases interest and engagement. And photos make it easier for people to communicate and to express thoughts in a free, non-judgmental way. Simply, because it is easier to say something about what you see than about what you can’t see YET. And because they provide metaphors. Photos catalyze coaching communication. But there is another important fact about photos in coaching: In coaching, clients’ snapshots can serve as records of clients’ resources and as ways to better understand the self. Ever since personal camera became widely available, people used it to create records of themselves and their lives in photographs. Personal photographs mirror, materialize and document the experiences of human life: biography, relationships, dreams, accomplishments.

An OPTION that you have to become a better coach is to use photo-based tools and techniques during the coaching sessions.

I’ve been using photos and clients’ snapshots for a couple of years already and I know that 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.

Photography in Coaching Course - Inspire Your Clients to Authenticity, Unblock Thoughts & Emotions

In 2016, I have designed a 3-day course for coaches and supervisors about using photography in coaching and personal development. I’ve been offering this course since then in Poland, my home country, and there are already hundreds of coaches how benefited learnt from me. Also, in 2019 I published on Amazon my BOOK entitled ‘ONE IMAGE – MANY WORDS. Photography in personal development, healing and education. Notes from a personal journey’. The book is in English and you can get your copy on Amazon.com.

On 18-20 March 2020, I invite you to Warsaw, Poland to join my unique, inspiring, hands-on course “Photography in coaching and personal development”. It is going to be the second edition taught in English! LINK to the course description.

Openning the mind to the ideas -back to childhood, fun, ease, release

“When you have nothing, the imagination works twice. It’s like a muscle. “- Luc Besson. In one of the interviews, Luc Besson, the creator of the Great Blue, Nikita, Leon The Processional, recalled his childhood. He walked around the city and thought up games because he did not have toys. He invented different stories, wandering the streets. This is how the stories were created and the heroes were born. Openness, ease, fun, putting aside both thoughts, one that maybe “I can not”, and second that perhaps “I already know everything”, open the mind to new ideas that lie dormant in our imagination.

photos help to express in words what we feel and experience

Photos help us to express ourselves

Sometimes it is difficult to express in words what we feel and experience. Sometimes it is easier to just show it, saying for example: “I feel now like this woman in the picture” and thanks to that I can unblock a further story.

Photos enable us to express what sometimes is difficult to put into words. They provide a picturesque form of communication.

Seeking beauty through lenses

Sometimes, it may be hard to get up and appreciate the gift of the day. The image which we have of our lives and our day may be unhappy, sometimes. When it happens, I go outside to look for beauty and harmony. Nature around us is very beautiful and to see beauty is a choice.

To seek beauty is a treatment.

With my lenses, I touch the beauty.

making a self-portrait

On Self-Portrait

Self-portraits are a way to look at yourself from the outside in.

The process of making a self-portrait, which includes posing and snapping the picture, is a way of getting to know yourself, to make contact, to express yourself. It’s a pursuit, examination and attempts to understand what we’re made of. It’s the beginning of a continuous internal dialog, a way to uncover your secrets and become a friend to yourself.

The most important meeting in your life – the one with yourself.

photographs speak about us

Photographs speak about us

Each photo we take has a beginning. It is an impulse from inside our minds as we see something. It can be stairs, turning points, curvy lines that cross the straight lines, the borders and the horizons, green grass and rust.

We discover ourselves “out there,” as the images we see around us are the pieces of ourselves we can sense within us.

We can understand our paths step by step, piece by piece, day by day as we take pictures. Photographs are like mirrors that reflect our lives.
