The magic of coaching in nature

How would it be to have your coach sessions outside, in a natural environment?  What difference would it make to be away from office and walk and talk in the open? Can you imagine how much more space it would give you and your client? And how it could benefit the proces of finding the right answers to your clients questions.?

Nature is the ultimate place to connect people to their inner selves. We have experienced this time and time again, during the 15 years we practice nature based coaching. Nature offers both the coach and the clients the right environment to slow down and give space to what wants to be seen and unfold. With the right ground attitude the coaching happens effortless, in a complete natural flow.


Leader in nature based coaching

Innersteps has grown to be a leader and expert in nature based coaching, offering inspiring and profound courses in Holland (for Dutch students) and Portugal (for International students). We teach  many different nature based work forms, each related to a different fase of the coaching proces. But most of all we teach to follow the natural movements of nature. This is the base of all programs. This means that we put a lot of attention in ‘being with what is’. We take time to stand still, to be mindfull and connect with our feelings, before we move on. We first make space in our head and our body, before we take steps into new directions.


Nature based coaching course in Portugal

This inspiring course is designed for coaches and therapists who like to take their clients into nature and want to deepen their work with individuals. The course is unlike any other coaching training. Participants will learn unique nature based work forms, and experience how they create profound results in only a few sessions.

Mindfulness is the ground attitude from which we work. Mindfulness is based on ancient Buddhist principles. In short it means: focusing your awareness, without any judgments, in the here and now. This means, that you consciously accept reality as it is. Whether this reality is desirable or not.

You practice to work from this non-judgmental attitude and you guide your client in looking at his or her dilemma, with that same attitude. We believe that change is only possible by observing your thoughts and actions carefully, and by embracing all your emotions lovingly, without any judgment. What has been unconscious will become conscious and this will automatically alter old patterns.


Working with symbols

Nature offers not only a tranquil environment for stillness and reflection, it also offers endless possibilities to work with metaphors and symbols. Working with symbols will deepen the process of awareness instantly and lead invariably to new insights and profound breakthroughs.


We follow the natural movement

When somebody is seeking personal guidance, you can assume that change is already happening. Otherwise one would not seek help. In this course you will learn how to follow the natural movement of this change. We do not want to go faster, neither slow down the process. We want to fully match the natural pace of our clients inner drive. We follow the soul, not the mind. You will see that in this way coaching will become an effortless act, with profound results.
