Lifestyle Consultancy

Asking professional, especially a psychologist's help has not got the same tradition in every culture. In recent years in Hungary more and more people who lead a "normal" life approach an expert for psychological support. Many of these people are successful in most areas of their lives but suddenly find themselves in a situation they cannot cope with alone or simply admit that involving a professional significantly cuts down the process of overcoming their problems.

Visits to a psychologist give opportunities to discuss spiritual problems, to release stress, to learn and develop one's personal ways to battle.

Individual and Team Coaching

We start from the principle that on the top of an organizational hierarchy there are successful, skilled managers, who have a significant role in defining the future, the heading and the success of the organization. In order to fit the expectations, they need stern preparations, need to increase their knowledge and to train themselves continuously.

During the prospect of coaching we deal with the managers' professional problems. This is like a raw material and the final product is the new knowledge, new approach, new values, in one word – NOVUM. Involving coaching in the life of an organization offers the possibility of creating invaluable virtue.

  • Before the work starts, there is a so called No. 0 meeting, where we find out whether the chemistry is working, if there is trust between the Coach and Coachee, which is the principle of any further co-operation. The No. 0 meeting is free of charge.
  • The objective of the coaching is to establish a positive change in the Coachee's professional personality, way of thinking and behaviour.
  • During coaching we work with exact examples and related experiences from the Coachee's professional life, completed with the latest knowledge of management of the Coach. (Refreshment of knowledge)
  • Depending on the objectives of the coaching the length of the course can be agreed in advance but it could also be continuous, lasting even for months if necessary.
