Philosophical counselling

 

This process of coaching distinguishes itself from a (psychological) therapy as it is it focuses on the speech and the reasoning of the client, rather than on the personality. This program consists of series of sessions of 1 hour each. You can organize this yourself according to your own possibilities, both offline and online (via Skype). In this process Kristof Van Rossem will be coaching you to reach the objectives you set yourself. You will have Socratic and other conversations with him and you will do exercises in decision making skills, logical thinking, argumentation and reasoning, sharpness in formulation, convincing your conversation partner etc. In between the sessions, you will get some ‘homework’ : exercises to improve your thinking competencies.

The style of the training is Socratic. This means that there is a focus on consciousness of one’s own judgments, arguments and assumptions and on the ability to make other people conscious of them as well. The training starts with one free session in which you will determine together with Kristof the objectives to be reached.

Practical aspects 

The cost of this coaching process depends on the intensity, the income, the frequency of the sessions etc. The minimum price for a session is 70 euro per hour. If you engage yourself for a series of (2X) 5 sessions, the price is 60 euro per session.

You can also choose to do a ‘marathon’ in which you engage yourself to do a session (and homework) every day. The marathon-price is only 30 euros per session. The minimum amount of sessions (days) for a marathon is 10. There are two programs for a ‘marathon’ that you might want to combine. The first program focuses on ‘critical thinking’ and makes a better thinker of you in min. 10 sessions. The second program is called ‘philosophical knowledge’. In this program, your questions and interest are nourished with the insights of important Eastern and Western philosophers that will be given to you through readable text fragments and video’s. During a marathon, you receive an exercise through mail/Whatsapp/Skype every day that will be given feedback to. During this process, there will as well be conversations with Kristof about the results.
