Astoja mission statement:

What is coaching?
Coaching is one of many ways to support people in their personal development. Coaching is a process that aims to improve performance and focuses on the ‘here and now’. Coaching helps individuals by finding their talents and refining their skills, so that they will achieve their goals.
A Coach helps individuals to improve their own performance by helping them to learn. Astoja Coaching believes that individuals always have the answer to their own problems but understands that they may need help to find the answer. Therefore the focus in a coaching process will be on creating awareness and stimulating self insight and autonomy. Personal development can be focused on dysfunctional behavior and patterns, but also on internal aspects like, for example: anxiety, low self-confidence and lack of motivation.
Personal coaching is not only effective in achieving ones personal goals in life, it is also effective in improving work performance. Therefore employers are also interested in hiring coaches to adress workrelated issues. It is already very common for employers to support employees to seek help from a coach and improve an employees work performance.
Coaching helps healthy and functioning people, who wish to develop themselves, but do not know how to handle a situation or how to break through a behavioral pattern by themselves. Sometimes there is reason to believe that a more serious condition can be the cause of these problems. In that case other professional help will be advised.
