What is coaching?

Coaching is a goal- and process-oriented dialogical process. The clients are seen as experts for their concerns and their individual background, so no ready-made solutions are presented. Rather, clients are supported in developing and implementing their own individual solutions during the coaching session. This happens, for example, through a change of perspective, the recognition of patterns, a deeper understanding of the problem in dialogic exchange or the awareness of one's own resources.

Possible coaching topics

  • Overcoming difficulties in writing the doctoral thesis
  • Constructive handling of conflicts
  • Self-management in everyday doctoral studies
  • Clarification and strengthening of one's own role as a doctoral student
  • Stress management, burn-out prophylaxis
  • Preparation for challenging situations
  • Dealing with biographical transitions: Study/doctorate and preparation for the time after the doctorate
  • Dealing with self-doubts and insecurities
