Learning makes us happy & drives productivity. Research shows that employees who spend time at work learning are 47% less likely to be stressed, 39% more likely to feel productive and successful, 23% more ready to take on additional responsibilities, and 21% more likely to feel confident and happy.

Josh Bersin, Linkedin, November 2018

IBM’s 'Making Change Work' study shows that change masters succeed 80% of the time, compared to change novices who only succeed 18% of the time.

"Too many organizations crashed from the top of their industries because of their inability to both recognize and manage fundamental change."

Life / Wingwave Coaching for Individuals

 

Profoundly liberating and transformative, Wingwave/Life Coaching enables individuals to make bold and positive life changes and overcome a wide range of challenging/self-sabotaging emotions -anxiety, stress, anger, worry, mental blocks, negative self-limiting beliefs, painful memories and similar scenarios. It establishes inner calm, reinstates hope, sets free mental clarity & energy, un(b)locks your passion, inspiration and dormant potential and enables you to perform at the peak of your ability and identify & reach your personal & professional goals. 

 

Online coaching via Skype (or similar) and one-to-one sessions in Edinburgh. Coaching in German or English.

There has never been a more important time in our personal lives and on a collective/global level for us to be level-headed, emotionally balanced, positive, powerful & proactive thinkers and decision-makers. 

The bold and inspired vision and solutions we so urgently need in our personal lives and on a global level simply cannot be found when we are consumed by difficult emotions - stress, anxiety, anger, when we're reactive, negative or even burying our heads in the sand. It is high time to recognise that these are outdated automatic reactions triggered by our unconscious brains. The fight/flight/freeze responses were designed to keep our distant ancestors living in caves save in case of an animal attack. In today's world, however, these reactions -if triggered over longer periods of time- make us ill and threaten our success if not survival. Deeply self-sabotaging, they take us further away from solutions to our problems. It is high time for a software update! This is what I offer in my workshops and deep coaching sessions.

 

The greater the challenges in our external lives, the clearer & calmer and the more creative, positive, visionary and focussed we actually not only need to but CAN be on the inside. 

I can help you to transform into being an emotionally balanced and more powerful person and face life's challenges and potential from a place of deep inner calm and joy. Working with me you will overcome inner stress & hurdles and gain greater self-knowledge, resilience and creative power. I can enable you to move from being overwhelmed and stressed to being calm and in your power, from not seeing the way forward to connecting to an inspiring & meaningful goal and creating a concrete path towards it. From feeling anxious and small to becoming a bold decision-maker, from feeling stuck to developing and unfolding your full dormant potential. 

 

From fearing that there is no way out to developing a new vision that may even become so powerful that it inspires others to unite around your positive goal. From feeling empty inside -despite being a high achiever- to rekindling your passion and discovering a renewed sense of purpose and direction. I work with people who (want to learn to) lean into the fear that comes from not setting an upper limit for their goals, power and potential / who (want to learn to) show up every day to the limitlessness of their own potential.

Today's unprecedented levels of uncertainty, constant fast-paced change and existential problems set the bar high for our willingness and ability to create a better future for ourselves and for future generations. It is my passion, mission and joy to work with people who want deep personal transformation, growth & expansion and who -in one way or another- initiate positive change in this world

THE MASTERY OF OUR OWN MIND

 

"In a rapidly changing, disrupted & disruptive world BY DEFINITION, 

THERE ARE NO MAPS. 

THERE CAN ONLY BE A COMPASS."

  J. Silva

Removing internal stressors, restoring your Mental Balance & Wellbeing, creating a Foundation for Peak Performance & Success

Wingwave / Life Coaching for Individuals -

Heart Powered Mind Mastery

A key element in my toolbox as a coach is Wingwave®, a ground-breaking neurological deep coaching method which helps you to overcome emotional & mental blockages and internal stress. It creates emotional calm, reinstates hope, increases mental clarity and creative decision-making power and enables you to find your direction, perform at the peak of your ability and manifest your personal & professional goals.

 

I can help you to prevent/address/overcome: 

 

Stress, anger, anxiety, worry, corona anxiety, stage fright, exam/performance/dental anxiety, burnout, self-loathing/lack of confidence, negative self-limiting beliefs, insomnia, overeating, numbness, setbacks on the way to achieving a goal, lack of direction/inspiration, past emotional or physical injuries or memories that still negatively impact on your wellbeing & performance and similar such scenarios. Wingwave Coaching can also help to identify whether emotional stressors underlie a physical illness and remove those stressors. 

 

Wingwave unlocks and sets free hitherto blocked energy and personal potential. Often experienced as profoundly liberating, Wingwave enables individuals not only to overcome emotional and mental stress in their day-to-day lives but also removes underlying emotional/psychological disturbances that may have undermined a person's wellbeing, happiness and success for long periods, if not decades. Wingwave increases resilience and resourcefulness - the ability to be balanced, calm and completely focussed and creative even and especially in the most stressful and demanding situations. Whilst Wingwave coaching method facilitates the release of difficult/negative emotions or memories, it also un(b)locks and reinforces the unique positive qualities and strengths of each individual and enables people to move forward in their lives feeling positive, hopeful, capable, courageous and creative. 

The effect of Wingwave is

a profound & long-lasting positive reprogramming of thought patterns and beliefs on an unconscious level which restores mental and emotional balance and wellbeing, increases mental clarity, agility and creative power and enables you to perform at the peak of your ability.

Wingwave® is a powerful yet gentle cutting edge neurological and transformational coaching technique which combines EMDR (bilateral brain hemisphere stimulation by mimicking rapid eye movement during sleep), NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and myostatic testing (a simple muscle test).

 

This unique method allows the unconscious mind and the body to take the lead in the coaching process (instead of the conscious mind or the coach) which reveals the unconscious mind's own 'map' and pinpoints with unparalleled precision specific unconscious mental stressors that disrupt, irritate or block the coachee's mental/emotional balance and ability to perform - which otherwise could not be identified and accessed. It then releases/removes those stressors. 

 

Performance-inhibiting and self-sabotaging unconscious thought patterns, habits and/or self-beliefs, such as 'I am worthless/powerless', 'I am not enough', 'I can't do it'/'I am incapable' etc. are transformed into powerful resource beliefs: 'I can do this', 'I am capable', 'I am...',

Overcome difficulties & transform anxieties and mental/emotional blockages into positive & creative decision-making power.

I can help you to transform anxieties into new positive inner resources and power - replace fear with curiosity, open your mind to new potential, enbale you to define your goals and direction in life and take concrete steps towards them.

A difficult situation or personal crisis is always full of potential for positive change & growth - when embraced as a part of your journey of self-discovery, it is an opportunity to discover potential you did not know you had.

Discover, tap into & unfold your dormant potential.

Wingwave® is an internationally recognised breakthrough technique. It has been scientifically tested and approved by the University of Hamburg, the Hannover Medical School and German Sport University Cologne. I am a certified Wingwave coach and member of the Wingwave Quality Circle of the Besser-Siegmund-Institute Ltd. in Hamburg, Germany.

Wingwave is certified as a Continuing Coach Education by the ICF/International Coaching Federation, considered the gold standard in coaching. It has been used for over fifteen years in businesses, high-performance sports, education, creative professions etc., enabling individuals to perform at their optimum ability and reach their personal & professional goals.

 

It is a paradox -and exciting- 'side effect' of the 4th Industrial Revolution that it increases the demand for our uniquely human abilities and powers: empathy, value-based decision-making, creativity and autonomous, critical & visionary thinking.

4TH Solution Coaching & Workshops build & nourish these skills.

SPONSOR A PERSON 

PEOPLE WITH MEANS SUPPORT PEOPLE IN NEED

Covid Appeal 

 

The number of people struggling with mental health issues -anxiety, panic attacks and depression- who are overwhelmed by a sense of fear and hopelessness has risen to crisis levels over the last few months. More often than not a lack of financial means and a lack of support by our overburdened health system mean that most people do not receive the help they so urgently need.

 

Sponsoring anxiety coaching sessions is a powerful way to support people who are struggling at this difficult time. If you and/or your company would like to sponsor others please do get in touch.

Even just one or two Wingwave® coaching session(s) can fundamentally shift a person's perspective, calm their emotions, reinstate a sense of hope and increase their wellbeing, resilience, energy levels and effectiveness.

If you would like to support a friend or family member who struggles with difficult emotions at this challenging time then this could be a powerful way to help them move forward.

 

I believe that social solidarity will be absolutely crucial over these next few months as we face a long and uncertain winter. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to make a meaningful difference to somebody else's life.

 

Traditional education does not equip people with the skills that are crucial for wellbeing & success in the 4th Industrial Revolution.

It is high time for a new education focussed on heart-driven & resilience-building mind mastery skills and on the autonomy, self-determination & creativity of individuals.

"Creativity is the new capital."

Joseph Beuys

 

Key competencies & strategies for an agile, resilient and creative 

mindset - increasing the wellbeing success

of individuals & teams

4THSolution Workshops for Corporations

In 4thSolution workshops, individuals & teams learn to develop meta-cognition, mind mastery and new change capabilities which increase their wellbeing, resilience, creativity and productivity in today's highly dynamic and often stressful work environments.


Individuals and teams learn to anticipate and embrace disruption and look for & discover the potential for innovation in unforeseen circumstances. Metacognition and mind mastery enable people to recognise, substantially reduce and avoid unconscious, negative, self-sabotaging and productivity-decreasing responses (such as stress, anxiety, worry, anger, exhaustion, conflict) as well as change-resistant thoughts and habits* - and learn to replace these with new positive and resilience-building competencies and strategies. 

(*In the context of change processes these negative responses can amount to a loss of productivity of over 50%). 

Consequently, the mental & emotional energy and the time previously absorbed by negative re-actions become available for the proactive development of positive solutions & creative new ideas.

Individuals & teams are enabled to think, plan & act at the peak of their abilities, beyond the limits of convention, past experiences, conditionings, habits and routines. 

Mental agility & space is created for the clear, critical, creative and innovative thinking, that is needed to not only master today's challenges but also tap into & unfold each individual's and the 4th Revolution's full potential.

Increased wellbeing, performance & productivity - without any increase in your time or energy investment. 

Productivity & efficiency increase 

and targets are reached more easily as improved stress resilience, inner calm and mental agility enable participants to stay solution-focused and creative even in challenging, stressful and highly pressured situations. Greater stress resilience helps to prevent burnout.

 

4ThSolution competencies ensure that your workforce has the mental and emotional capacity to not only cope with but thrive in and drive the change process

Improved empathy, communication and negotiation skills in turn inspire a positive team spirit and positive collaboration

across departments.

 

4thSolution competencies help to create positive & vibrant workplace culture, increasing 

your company's attractiveness and employee retention rate. 4thSolution 

change capabilities help to keep your teams at the forefront of developments and your company ahead of your competitors.

Our innovative & 

interactive workshops are designed to evoke light-bulb moments that enable participants to instantly experience positive effects.

 

Because

learning goes deeper when it is enjoyable,

all 4THSolution Workshops are inspiring, engaging and fun.

 

 4th Solution Workshops facilitate deep learning that has a long-lasting positive impact on the participants' professional and personal lives. 

 

Making sure your people and your business do not just survive but THRIVE.

Coaching for Individual Team Members / Leaders

Stress, anxiety, anger and similar emotions dramatically reduce the effectiveness of individuals and can hold back their personal and your company's potential and success. Peak performance Wingwave Coaching reduces these productivity-inhibiting emotions by pinpointing and removing specific psychological/emotional stressors that may block or disturb a person and restores their mental and emotional balance by anchoring positive resources in the unconscious mind. Wingwave® Coaching helps to address and prevent burnout and makes peak performance, high productivity and success not only achievable but sustainable.  

THE COST OF POOR MENTAL HEALTH

A recent analysis by Deloitte in conjunction with mental health charity Mind (Feb. 2020) has calculated the annual cost to business of poor mental health. The findings are staggering:

  • £42bn to £45bn – annual cost of poor mental health for UK employers each year

  • £6bn or 16% – increase in cost of poor mental health since 2017

  • £7bn – cost of absences due to mental health issues

  • £27bn to £29bn – cost of presenteeism

  • £9bn – cost of staff turnover due to mental health issues

  • 9% – those who disclosed a mental health problem who were dismissed, demoted or disciplined

  • one in six workers will experience a mental health problem at any one time

  • stress is now thought to be responsible for almost half of working days lost in Britain due to health issues. 

  • the report makes a positive case for employers investing in mental health, with an average return of £5 for every £1 spent.

Behind these statistics are the untold stories of the suffering of hundreds of thousands of people - families, partners, children. This exhaustion and depletion of human resources reflect the depletion of our resources in the natural world - of the very foundation of our existence. 

 

Our world of work is not working - neither for businesses nor the people behind them nor for our natural world. It's a situation in which nobody wins. 

We need a fundamental paradigm shift away from the depletion of people and the natural world towards a deep care for and protection & nourishment of our inner and our natural resources.

For a rebalanced world in which our internal and external -natural- resources are nourished, protected & restored.

We are passionate about inspiring and enabling people to not only tap into the 4th Revolution's but also their own full HUMAN POTENTIAL.

It is our mission to support people and companies in building a positive (work) environment which invites and fosters the highly autonomous, critical, creative and visionary thinking which is today not only essential for business success but also for the development of solutions to today's urgent and existential environmental problems. For a wholesome world and an economy that has the autonomy, creativity and wellbeing of individuals and the restoration of nature at its heart - because "we [simply] cannot solve today's problems with the same mindset that created them."

Wellbeing and Success depend on Mastering Change. 

IBM’s 'Making Change Work' study shows that change-resistance is one of the top inhibitors of project/business & personal success. People with highly developed change 

capabilities succeed 80% of the time, compared to change novices who only succeed 18% of the time.

Learning new competencies itself increases wellbeing and success. Employees who spend time at work learning are 47% less likely to be stressed, 39% more likely to feel productive and successful, 23% more ready to take on additional responsibilities, and 21% more likely to feel confident and happy (Josh Bersin, Linkedin, November 2018).

The wellbeing of people is the foundation for sustained and sustainable success. 

An investment in 4THSolution Workshops & Coaching pays off.

Unlock your full potential.
