Josine van Vechgel
Master Organisationalpsychology & Mindfulness Specialisation
A hard, confrontational approach does not suit Josine Christie van Vegchel (33). In her One Session coaching, she is gentle, empathic, and involved. But also: solution-oriented. I always give my clients concrete tools that really help them.
- SST – Single Session Coaching
- MBSR – mindfulness based stress reduction
- ACT – Acceptance and Commitment Therapie
- Solution focused Therapy
‘People can come to me if they feel stuck or if they want to learn to be more assertive and take better care of themselves. I also help people with (pre) burn-out problems.
Sometimes it’s not entirely clear yet where the pain sits. In a conversation, we can figure that out together.’
What is your style as a coach?
‘As a coach for One Session, I always try to see through the answers. If, after answering a question, someone mumbles, “But yeah, that’s not a problem” then I keep asking. I know right away: there’s something there.
I am always gentle, empathetic and committed. A hard, confrontational approach does not suit me. I find nothing strange, my clients have nothing to be ashamed of. I am solution oriented. I do not delve endlessly into someone’s past. Together with my clients I look at how they can focus their attention on the now.
People can come to me with burn-out complaints, if they feel they have become stuck – at work, privately or both – or if they want to learn to stand up for themselves more. Sometimes it is not yet entirely clear where the hitch is. That is not a problem. We can find out together during a conversation.’
What is your background?
‘After a double bachelor and a master in Labour and Organisational Psychology at Utrecht University, I specialised in mindfulness. Psychology is very focused on the head, but I like to approach people holistically. That enables me to look at a situation from all sides.
In my work, I have always been interested in the question: why do people do things they don’t want to? And more importantly: how can you change that behaviour?
Besides my work as a psychologist, I work as a trainer and coach in the business world. In this capacity, I deal with diversity and inclusion, among other things, and I guide employees in their professional development.
I enjoy living in Amsterdam, but sometimes I miss nature. In my spare time I like to go out with my husband and young daughter in our Volkswagen T3 California camper. It is our home on wheels. I love other cultures and foreign languages, travelling broadens my perspective.’
What do you like about SST-coaching?
‘I always find it a great honour to get a glimpse into someone’s life. To open myself up to someone’s world and have them allow me in.
A session is successful for me when someone feels heard and understood. I always give my clients concrete tools that they can really use. I believe that’s the strenth of the Single Session Therapy (SST) method’
