  • Why is investing in coaching worth it?
    Coaching helps you to find your own solutions to challenges. Often very quickly, before the issues become bigger. It shows you your own strengths and has an encouraging and motivating effect. As it is practical and solution-oriented, the focus is on helpful changes and possible next steps. Typically, you also take away helpful insights and possible courses of action for future challenges. The earlier you work on your issues with a coach, the better - and often they don't become as big as you feared :)
  • Are coachings taking place online or in person?
    It all depends on what you prefer. All our coaches offer online coaching. However, if you are in the same city, the coaching could also take place in person. It's best to discuss this with each other.
  • What is the process of arranging a meeting with a coach?
    After you have registered, you answer a few questions that are important for your coach (e.g. subject area, age, level of experience, etc.). Based on your answers, we will suggest 3-5 coaches who might be a good fit for you.  Now you can take your time to look at the coaches' profiles with their ratings/prices/level of experience, etc. You can then simply contact the coach who appeals to you and arrange a free introductory meeting. The free introductory meeting is offered by each of our coaches. If the vibe is right, you'll make an appointment for your coaching session.
  • When is Coaching not the right thing?
    Coaching cannot replace psychotherapy and is not the right thing to do if you are in an acute emergency situation. If you find yourself in an acute crisis or emergency situation, please call 112 or contact the following (free of charge): German telephone counseling/crisis service: +49 800 - 1110111 or +49 800 - 1110222 ( ) Anonymous help for children and young people: (online counseling) Counseling for people under 25 with suicidal thoughts: (e-mail counseling)
  • What is a chemistry meeting?
    The chemistry meeting is a first, quick & free-of-charge meeting between the Coach and the coachee so both can get to know each other and see if they harmonize well before scheduling the first coaching session. The length of the meeting varies depending on the coach between 10-30 min.  PS: If you don't enjoy the introductory meeting, you can simply contact another coach.
  • How much is a coaching?
    The coach sets the price for coaching himself, so it can vary between coaches (usually 50-150€/h). Payment is handled directly between you and your coach. You will always see the coach's price, level of experience and ratings in their profile.  PS: Many coaches offer reduced prices for students ;)
  • What is a coachee?
    A coachee is the person who is supported by a coach. The coach provides impulses, feedback and strategies to help the coachee achieve his/her goals, overcome challenges and develop his/her individual potential. A coach, on the other hand, provides structure, guidance, and feedback to help the coachee to maximize their potential and achieve desired outcomes.
  • What’s the difference between coaches/psychologists/psychotherapists?
    Psychologists are people who have a Bachelor's or Master's degree in psychology. Psychological psychotherapists have completed 3-5 years of state-recognized additional training in psychotherapy in addition to their Bachelor's and Master's degree in psychology.  The terms psychologist and psychotherapist are legally protected terms.  "Coach" is not a protected term. This means that anyone can call themselves a coach and charge privately. That is why we carefully check that all our coaches have a completed and recognized coaching license.  PS: All coaches on Coach-Wave are psychologists, licensed psychotherapists or have a completed and recognized coaching license.
  • What is coaching?
    A typical coaching session lasts around one to two hours. During this session, you will be supported in finding solutions to your challenges. Sometimes a single coaching session is enough to change your perspective, motivate you to take the next steps and bring about lasting change. The basic attitude in coaching is that we all have the necessary tools within us to lead a fulfilling life. However, we sometimes lack access to our "resources". This is exactly where coaching can help us to open up new perspectives and take the next steps.
  • How is life coaching different from therapy?
    Psychotherapy focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders (psychopathology) and is usually a process that extends over a longer period of time.  Coaching is not used on the basis of a medical diagnosis. It is used to achieve personal goals, solve problems (or master challenges) and thus to develop personal potential and individual development. Coaching is solution-oriented and focuses very strongly on the future.
