Full Counseling Programme
Growing Your Self-confidence At Full sail
Your daily life feels like a minefield sometimes. All around you, people navigate the society’s expectations with ease, but it feels like any time you move a single muscle, everything explodes. Out of the blue, people get angry or disappointed, and apparently that’s your fault somehow. They keep telling you that “you should never do that” or “you should always do this”. You constantly bend over backwards to meet their expectations, but you just can’t seem to win… and it’s just so exhausting.
“Why can I just get it right?” you wonder, while you yet again put in all your effort to:
No human being can keep that up for long! No wonder you have all these aches and issues. Some days they bother you more than at others, but they keep coming back without ever having truly left. You probably recognise a few of them:
- Doom thinking
- Intrusive thoughts
- (Social) Anxiety
- Panic attacks
- Concentration problems
- Mental exhaustion
- Low self-esteem
- Lacking energy, even for things you normally enjoy
- Depressive thoughts
- Head aches and sore neck
- Trouble sleeping
- Feeling like you can’t breathe
- Physical pain with no medical cause
- Weariness that doesn’t improve after sleep
So, how many did you count? Quiet a few, yes?
And how long have you been suffering from these issues? How long have you been trying to get rid of them? I can imagine you spent quite a bit of time and effort trying to find a solution. Of course you did. No one likes feeling like crap! Oh yes, I understand completely: I’ve dealt with a fair share of these myself for years.
But enough’s enough, right? You want rid of these issues, sooner rather than later! And that is exactly what I help you achieve in this counseling programme.
These issues are common symptoms of prolonged stress.
Prolonged stress can be caused by a host of different things, like workload, performance pressure in school, perfectionism, life events, health worries, money worries, oppressive family, rude neighbours, peer pressure on social media, relationship issues or the loss of a loved one.
When you experience the world differently than most people do – and therefore don’t fit standard expectations by default – that, too, can be a source of prolongued stress. You don’t need an officially confirmed diagnosis of ADHD, autism, HSP, high-IQ or post-traumatic stress disorder to notice the influence of aspects thereof on how you think, feel and act.
And your sexuality, gender identity, skin colour, religion of disability can also be the reason why you are expected to comply with other people’s expectations of who you are.
But when you continuously turn yourself inside out trying to adjust yourself to appease others, you eventually lose yourself.
Being Yourself with self-confidence
“I just want to be myself!” So many people say this and mean it, but how will you know that you are being yourself when you don’t truly know who you are yet?
Who are you at heart? What drives you truly? These are some of the questions that turn your dream of being yourself into reality. Just imagine that:
- you make decisions that you fully support without a doubt,
- you voice your opinion with faith in yourself and in the other,
- you can be honest about how you feel, even when it’s not going so great,
- you have a firm grip and clear overview of your work, your home and your life,
- you say out loud and wholeheartedly: “What I do is good enough.”
What would your life look like? What would have changed? What would be better in your life?
That image may seem far away for now, but that kind of self-confidence is within your reach!
The great thing about self-confidence is that you feel better because you have confidence, and because you feel better, your self-confidence grows. Once you have made that first step and put that process in motion, the rest follows suit.

Frequently Asked Questions
Maybe you already know what causes your problems and maybe that cause has a diagnosable name. Or perhaps you don’t know what is what beyond that you don’t want to feel like this anymore.
In both cases, “At Full Sail” helps you get a handle on your problem and find a solution. The aim of the counseling is to (re)discover your internal mental resillience, so you are once more able to cope with the challenges you face – now and in future. Ultimately, that is what self-confidence really is!
If you want to know more about how working with me can help you in your specific situation, booking a free Navigation Call is the easiest way to receive the answer to your questions.
Since the Covid crisis, video calls have proved to be an effective alternative to face-to-face sessions. The methods I use don’t require us to be in the same physical room and all exercises can be done across a video screen. Having gained extensive experience working with clients unable to travel or living at least half a continent away, I can confidently state that online counseling is as effective as face-to-face sessions.
Yes, it’s possible to pay in 3 monthly instalments of € 272 (including € 15 administration fee). The first instalment is due before the first session. The other two instalments are due one resp. two months after the invoice date of the first instalment. Don’t worry: you will receive an overview of what is due when well in advance.
If you’d like to make use of this option, just let me know during our Navigation Call.
Indeed I also offer a 6-session programme: “Through the Storm”. This short programme is designed to tackle practical issues and to help get a first handle on more complex problems.
When you book your free Navigation Call, we will discuss which programme would be best suited for you and what the short programme can offer you.
