  • Leading OUR lives with Inner Consent

    07/13/2021

    In Existential Coaching we speak of Inner Consent. Inner Consent simply put is a personally felt “yes”! Inner Consent is an internal affirmation or experienced “rightness” (not perfection!). “I can stand behind this decision I have made, this direction I have chosen to take in my life". "This activity that I am engaged in corresponds with me, it resonates with me, with my capacities, it resonates with my internal compass". "I am the one behind my decisions and actions". “I am leading my decisions and actions”

  • Existential Coaching - Exercising Our Experiential Muscles

    07/13/2021

    At the heart of existential coaching is a very human desire to feel more fully present and engaged in our lives. We want to feel more alive and vibrant, to feel connected to and part of communities, and to experience healthy, valued relationships. We fear being isolated or set apart in the world. We want to feel less lonely. We want to be better able to weather and ride the waves of life. We want to find ways to tame our worry and anxiety about issues we cannot easily control: our jobs, the economy, the environment, global politics, the state of our world.

The Interview

  • Dr. Alfried Längle, Prof. Dr. med. Dr. Phil

    Dr. Längle and I discuss fulfillment, burnout and the components of good leadership, all from an existential analytic perspective. A common element in all three is what Dr. Längle describes as the necessary “…practice of basic existential connecting”: being engaged in the world around us, being fully present in all that we do and the capacity to feel deeply connected to ourselves and our feelings.
