I would like to coach

Coaching consists of supporting students and / or staff in their personal growth and professional development during their studies or their work (for instance as a teaching assistant). The basic principle is to help the coachee obtain new insights, based on which (s)he can make new/different choices, experiences less stress and can perform well in his / her studies or work.

Coaching course

Would you like to get started as a coach? In the Dutch Master “Work- Organization and Personnel Psychology” you are able to follow the course “Coaching”. The course is taught in Dutch. The course focuses on the application of psychological theories in coaching practices see study-guide

Coach Workshop

Would you like to gain more experience as a coach after the course "Coaching"? Then you can sign up at the Coach Workshop. The Coach Workshop offers you the possibility to coach on a voluntary basis. Even after your graduation, you will have two more years to gain more work experience as a coach.


If a student/employee wants to be coached, you will be given the contact details of the prospective coachee and the coachee will receive your contact details. Coach and coachee then make appointments for the coaching sessions.


When you both agree to work together, you and the coachee will compose a coaching agreement. You will evaluate during the coaching sessions whether there is a trusting work relationship. Moreover, you will actively participate in professional development activities such as peer review / supervision. When the coaching services are completed, you write a self-evaluation: As a coach you will have to adhere to the professional code of the NIP (Dutch Psychology Association). You could also be approached to participate in research projects.
