what students say:

student UM (20)

“The coaching process showed me the importance of taking care of myself and care about myself. It made me grow in my self-awareness and create a space where the most important aspect was “me’. I was surprised about the feedback of other students about my development and growth. It has been very important for me and I would also recommend that this coaching process should be something which is offered regularly at university because it can reveal important struggles and ways out of them, without being set in an uncomfortable and forced setting.”

“In my experience Bavo masters the art of being with people in an attentive and loving way. Moreover he gets to the very root of the issue without beating about the bush. For me that was very enlightening!  The power of his coaching comes from that specific combination of qualities. It supported me in recovering my balance. And the result for me was that I got a brilliant succes!”

“I got so many insights about myself. I am grown up, I am not stupid, I can protect myself and of that I am proud. People around me see and confirm that the progress is real. The conversations were mostly all intense and not always something to really look forward to. Nevertheless, they helped me accept things from the past en present, and made me be more honest with myself, there was no denying. When letting go of the pretend and coming closer to myself I feel more balanced. I have more confidence in myself, the knowledge I can overcome things and understand myself more than I thought I could, will help me when encountering new challenges and to continue to work on myself.”

“The coaching process with Bavo has supported me with growing into a more confident, more self-aware adult. Things like taking time for myself, for exercise, for sleep, are just as important and help me deal with stress and still improve academically. What helped me in this respect is that the coach never tried to convince to study less or to dismiss my ambition, but instead helped me how to deal with it in a healthy manner. What is useful is the ‘reality check’ that I can do now, and that I am more comfortable with sharing, put to use in most situations. It has helped me understand my needs and has given me tools for dealing with stress and personal problems. I am now a confident adult and a better teamplayer.”

“I did overcome my fear of discussing my personal issues with another person. This was something I did not think I could ever do. I did grow significantly through being more aware of my own issues, concerns and qualities. I gained several tools, like breathing exercises, personal reflection and self-awareness tools. Although it was an emotional and difficult process, I think I did benefit enormously from the coaching process.”
