I teach coaches & photographers to inspire their clients to authenticity, courage & change with images & personal photos.

I invite you to discover the power of photography in coaching. There is something very unique about photography in our lives nowadays. We all take photos and communicate through them every day. Every important moment or relationship or reflection is in a photo. Our biographies are illustrated in our personal snapshots and family albums. We can use these photos in coaching in order to help our clients to re-focus their attention from lack to abundance, replace negative narratives with positive ones, and plan the future from a perspective of growth and lasting. I help my clients to discover their strengths in their personal snapshots and once they can see them in their own photos, they become inspired and powerful. I also invite them, to take photos between the sessions to help them learn new habits of a healthy life and positive mind.

Today we are all under the constant influence of information, pressure and inspiration from social media. A sense of scarcity is often built which lowers the sense of one’s own competence, personal power and readiness to realize one’s vision of life. What’s more, negative habits are formed that lower the quality of life, such as over-reading social media, constantly listening or watching something, lack of regular practice of movement and inner silence, contact with one’s thoughts, emptiness and silence.

To learn to live your life you need to do a lot of work of discovering yourself, understanding what you want, but also what we already have. What are our natural character strengths and the personal gift that we use to shape our lives. I think it is worth answering the question of what I already have, what is strong and valuable in me and found our life on it.

And personal photos are very helpful in this. I have developed a coaching practice in which personal photos help people discover their powers, what they already have, appreciate it and, plan their next steps from the perspective of wealth. Moreover, I invite my clients to practice photography as a technique that changes their habits and self-perception between sessions. A similar way to the 21-days challenges.

My vision is to teach other coaches around the world how to use photos in their coaching practice so that everyone can do it.

What important is 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.

This course is an opportunity to grow in the international, multicultural environment. It is taught in English. It is open to people from all over the world. It was my dream and vision since a long time to create space for learning that connects people from various cultures, mindsets, religions, countries, climates and continents.

Selected feedback from the Participants:

“High quality, variety of topics, profound, authentic, practical. It enlarged and deepened my insights on the personal and professional level. Powerful. Very good balance between theory and practice. Training location like home. Food very healthy, made with love. I would absolutely recommend to anyone who wants to expand their perspectives and deepen their insights. This training is a gift, personally and professionally. Dorota is a very special woman – warm, creative, intelligent, so much in contact with herself. I’m inspired by her as a person.” Nicole Woltmann, Germany

The Photography in Coaching workshop is a powerful and transforming encounter with oneself, one’s life, past and important relationships. It is also looking at what’s next. It is finding answers to important questions that are inside us and thanks to Dorota they go outside, call, and sometimes even pull and demand to be noticed. I experienced tangibly what a powerful material for reflection, and insight are provided by my own photos and the shooting process. On the one hand, I went through my own deep process, on the other – I got a lot of inspiration and tools.” Joana Fabisiak, Poland
