About My Friends and Me

About My Friends

The way I coach, which is based on Focusing (Focusing-oriented coaching) as well as the client-centered approach, is very special and requires a separate professional training.
Since I am fortunately not the only one with this approach, I would like to refer here to other experts who use the same approach and with whom I maintain a very close professional exchange.

Dietmar Steinbach

utilizes more than 30 years of extensive management experience at executive level in international corporations and medium-sized companies. Thus, he knows the operational day-to-day business and the associated challenges from his own experience. In addition, he has been using and testing the Focusing method in particular for many years. This, as well as the practice of Zen meditation are an essential pillar not only of his professional path to success.
