Experiences with online self help

Experiences about online counselling

Participants in the program will discover in a few weeks time which solution will help them to enjoy life again. For each participant the solution looks completely different, but mostly they are about the little things in life.

Frans V., founder and manager of his own company:

Through these exercises I have learned to reflect on myself. When I feel stress coming up now, I breathe in deeply, pause for half a minute and repackage again by doing one of these exercises. In the meantime I have discussed the principles with my employees and some of them are already applying them. And I am amazed at how well the customers react to them. They feel more attention and time and their customer satisfaction has increased, where before I was afraid I would neglect them, by listening more to my body.

Marianne K., an exam stress student, did not believe she would pass her exams. After this program, she testifies:

These techniques have helped me. I resigned myself to the fact that not everything could be perfect, and with the time I had finished the most important things. I passed my exams. So this certainly helped!

Dora V., mother of Thomas:

I was looking for a program to change my behaviour and my habits ... A few weeks after starting this program, I had a very difficult time at school with my son, because he was bullied, making me think I was going to explode because normally my reaction would be to get very angry and react very impulsive ... I was able to have a conversation in a very quiet way, so they also gave me a reaction ... the behaviour of the teacher and the director was very different because my behaviour was different, and it has actually become a very successful conversation, so I went home with a super good feeling ...

Maria B., housewife:

I clearly feel an evolution because I am very supported by this program. It is a real learning program in which you gradually make progress through the commitment you enter into and your willingness to learn. This cannot be done without the techniques and the structure that are offered.

Anita F., executive secretary:

This session has given me insight about what happens in my body during stress (peaks). If I can recognize and want to see the signals of my body, I can also understand where the fear comes from. In this way I can tackle the cause and reduce my stress. The realization that this will bring a lot of effect, is there. It will be a whole process, of which I am aware. Sincere thanks for this opportunity!

This explains why sentences are not grammatically correct. You notice that some participants focus more on private goals, others more on professional goals. Most of the choices or solutions that participants mention here are solutions that were not suggested by the program but that they discovered themselves through the process of self-reflection that we initiate. You will find that solutions that work for one person are totally unattractive for someone else. that is why we help participants to identify their own solutions and choices themselves.
