Benefits of meta coaching
Regular coaching is based on what the client is feels regarding a situation. In meta coaching, we work on what the client thinks about the situation, and the clients reaction to the situation. Which beliefs, values and attitudes are behind it, and what is the meaning of it?

This method is developed by psychology professor, Dr. L. Michael Hall. The method is an expansion of NLP.

All certified meta coaches (ACMC) are certified after their performances to an international standard, in the skills of listening, support, questioning, meta questioning, provoking states-of-mind, giving and receiving feedback. To keep their certificate, their skills need constant maintenance and the competence needs to be renewed regularly.
