De auteur

Paul Koeck, MD followed his youth dream and passion to discover how you can help people to change so they can reach their goal: building up a happy and successful life, both privately and professionally. That is why he first studied medicine, philosophy, and sports medicine at the Catholic University Louvain, followed by an MBA at the Vlerick School for Management and several completed courses in, among others, cognitive solution focused therapy, systematic therapy and coaching, and Ericksonian hypnotherapy.

With this, he started to help people in his private practice as a doctor and therapist on the one hand, and on the other hand by founding Coachteam where he helps corporate leaders to reach their professional goals.

He gave seminars and workshops at international congresses and at universities on 4 continents all over the world: from the United States and Argentina to Lithuania and India.
With the founding of ’15Minutes4Me.com’ he wanted to share his experience and knowledge by writing books and developing self-help programs.
