What is life coaching?

Life coaching is an empowering and transformative form of coaching aimed at helping individuals achieve their goals and overcome challenges, both in their professional and personal lives. It serves as a platform for exploring various life questions and unlocking one’s full potential.

A life coach guides clients through a journey of self-discovery, assisting them in identifying their talents, passions, and aspirations. Additionally, they aid in setting and attaining health, fitness, and lifestyle goals. Life coaches also provide support in navigating conflicts, setbacks, and criticism, as well as transforming disruptive feelings and negative emotions into positive outcomes.

Certified international meta-coach, with a lot of extra knowledge and experience. Also see my biography.

This video is part of DashNDem’s artwork at the Athens Biennale 2013. 11 top life coaches from around the world were asked to collaborate on a video artwork. The art installation had the intention to coach the Greeks “out” of the 2008 crisis. In “Reaching Re-birth” the coaches coach visitors to the Biennale by means of video messages. 150,000 visitors have seen the installation.

Wassili talks in this video about pessimism, hopelessness and feelings of victimisation. He guides the viewer on how to turn these feelings into optimism.

A life coaching pathway

  • The coaching process starts with an intake interview of one hour. The intake provides more clarity about your coaching question and the goals to be achieved. During the follow-up sessions, we will work on solving the obstacles that stand in your way to achieve your outcomes. Step by step you will move closer to your goals.  Every step closer to the goal can reveal new challenges that need to be resolved. The purpose of life coaching is to achieve your goals and change limiting barriers.
  • The duration of a coaching process is on average between 3 to 8 sessions (1 to 1.5 hours at a time). Transformation of the deeper issues and efficiency are important in this proces.
  • Participating in one of my training courses enables you to receive 5 coaching sessions with a discount.
  • The location is IJburg, Amsterdam. Appointments can also be on your location, at companies and governments institutions for an additional fee.
  • Coaching can also take plane  online via Skype, Teams, Zoom or FaceTime. The results are excellent.
  • The costs of a personal life coach are often deductible. Ask your own advisor about the options. Unfortunately, this method is not yet reimbursed by insurers.

“Coaching with Wassili is 1000 times more effective, more positive, more liberating than listening to a Freudian psychotherapist entangled with himself.

- Stephan Pröppertalking to a friend who's wife is a psychotherapist
