Paul Koeck, MD followed his childhood dream and passion of discovering how you can help people to change in order for them to reach their goals: building up a happy and successful life, both privately and professionally. That is why he started to study medicine, philosophy and sports medicine at the Catholic University Louvain, followed by an MBA at the Vlerick School for Management. He also completed several courses in, among others, cognitive solution based therapy, systematic therapy and coaching, and Ericksonian hypnotherapy.
With this baggage he started to help people in his private practice as a doctor and therapist on the one hand, and on the other hand by the creation of Coachteam where he helps business managers to realize their professional goals.
He gave seminars and workshop on international congresses and at universities on 4 continents all over the world: from the United States and Argentina to Lithuania and India.
With the development of '15Minutes4Me.com' he wants to share this experience and knowledge by writing books and developing self-help programs.
