Manage stress and reduce burnout risk at the same time

"Rene is a fantastic coach. He took time to listen and understand the confusion I was going through, and then asked questions which helped me get clarity on my doubts. I admire his coaching style, of asking the right questions, rather than immediately jumping to answers. The sessions were very helpful to me. I would highly recommend Rene as a coach! Thanks"

About Rene

"If we want to live in peace, peace must come from within ourselves." - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Hello, I am Rene, author, husband and stress and burnout coach from Einhausen, on the beautiful Bergstrasse.
I have a very clear goal for my clients: managing directors, executives and self-employed people should be able to minimize their stress level by structured and simple methods so that they can recognize the causes and avoid illnesses through preventive measures. That was not always the case with me:
A few years ago I was constantly stressed, always had too little time. Headaches, stomach aches, insomnia and listlessness were the result.
Today I rest deep within myself, am a mental coach as well as a stress and burnout coach and start exactly there so that others do not get into this vicious circle.
What’s your biggest bottleneck right now? What robs you of strength and energy?

If that doesn’t apply to you, a coach can be a way for you to shortcut pain and suffering and get right to the techniques that can work for you.

Yes, this is normal. The coaching process can be nerve-wracking. However, remember that this is a process that is outside of your normal and daily experience and therefore will feel foreign.

what didn’t work so you don’t repeat the same mistakes.

We can also explore strategies for dealing with stress and decide if we are a good fit for each other.

If your coach knows his or her stuff, you should take as few sessions as possible without forgetting the importance of developing and maintaining new, positive habits.

An authentic coach has your best interests in mind, not his own.And a truly qualified coach has the techniques and strategies to get you out of stress and into calm as quickly as possible. A 90-day plan is a good time frame for the best results.

The goal and responsibility of an ethical stress coach is to give you the tools that lead to self-empowerment to ensure that you are able to self-manage your mental, emotional and physical health.
A coach can always be supportive, either passively or actively, as needed.

Your goal and that of your coach should be to develop your metacognition. (Developing an awareness of one’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and the patterns that underlie them).

Suppose you are experiencing stress:

Making resilient to stress

A stress mentor can help you implement a stress prevention plan so that when you run into a normally stressful situation or day at work, your mind and body simply don’t react to the stressful situation.

You become resilient to stress.

An effective stress management professional will educate you on the following:

* How stress works,
* How it affects your physical and mental health.
and most importantly: what you can do every day to prevent, manage and treat stress….

…so that you build your resilience to stress and avoid its harmful effects.

You learn how to deal with stress.
Learning how to manage stress is just as important as learning the job you’re in or the business you have.
Because if you can’t do your job or your business because of stress, you increase the risk of being fired or that you won’t go full throttle in your business because you feel bad at work.

You’ll learn how to manage stress more effectively.
Remember that it is impossible to eliminate stress because there are literally thousands of different types of stressors.
Therefore, the goal is to learn how you can manage stress through accurate information and the application of effective and natural techniques, strategies, activities and exercises to reduce stress in your daily life.

The goal of working with a stress coach is positive change.
Your thoughts and feelings may change within a few minutes of using one or more stress management techniques, some may take a little longer.
As a result of stress coaching, you should feel calmer, more relaxed, more at ease, with more self-compassion, better emotion regulation, more rational, clearer, lighter, happier, more purposeful, able to accomplish your life goals, more in control, smiling more…. and enjoy life more in general.
