You are unique, as is your situation and the way you experience the situation. We do not work with standard programs at Thamba Coaching. Each route is tailor-made to make it fit your situation and your needs and wishes. In this way, you spend your time and energy in development on the areas you wish to develop instead of wasting energy on themes that you already have under control or that do not apply to you at all.
The themes from which a coaching program can be built are:
With the term burnout is meant the feeling of being literally burnt out and that there is no energy left to work, to do nice things or to solve problems. Characteristic is that the balance between effort and relaxation is gone or disturbed. The situations plays a role in the burnout, but it is also important how you deal with this situation. By discovering what your needs and your limits are and to act accordingly, you can reduce the complaints and recognize and avert a new burnout early on. Burnout is often only related to overload on the work floor, but a burnout can also occur due to a disturbed private situation.
In case of a first burnout or light complaints, online coaching can be recommended. With a (very) complicated burnout it is recommended to seek more intensive help. Do you doubt whether online coaching is suitable for you? Sign up for the free and noncommittal intake, so we can explore together whether this form of help fits your situation.

This check or these checks can be added in a coaching program. In this check you will be asked how you are doing at the moment, it will be checked whether something has happened or changed in your situation, but also how you experience the coaching program until then. If you have the check moments as part of a longer program, you will also evaluate what has already been learned to see if you are able to apply the new skills. Finally, the interim check is used to see if progress has been made.
Everyone who follows a coaching program.
- Check moment.
The check moment sessions are highly recommended after every +/- 10 sessions of each coaching program.
Once you have completed your coaching program, you will be given the opportunity to evaluate the program. This includes checking whether you have had enough information and whether you have experienced sufficient support. Of course we will look at your results. Are the complaints or problems reduced or perhaps even disappeared or are you still experiencing the problems? You can also rate the program with a grade. Finally, you can write a review for the website.
For anyone who has followed a coaching program.
Your opinion is highly appreciated, so obviously the evaluation is free of charge.
Fear has a useful function, but if you experience anxiety without a case, it can be a significant hindrance. Characteristic of a phobia is that there is a fear of something specific and the fear is unreasonable and not useful. If this fear influences and limits you in daily life, it is called a phobia.

If you experience a problem, it can disrupt your life. It can cause stress and eventually it can cause physical and mental complaints. Not all problems are equally easy to solve and some problems can not be solved. In the latter case acceptance is a way to deal with the permanent problem. In this theme you will make a distinction between the problems you can not change and the problems you can do something about. The focus is on the problems in which you can play a role.

What do you take from the past period with you and continue to perform? The reflection is highly recommended, because it can be a nice completion of the process and helps you on your way for the time when you will not receive guidance any more.

If you recover from a mental health issue, you want to prevent it from ever coming back. Characteristic of psychological problems is that it does not arise over night. Often it goes gradually and in such a way that you only notice it when you had a relapse. This theme fits in this situation. By making a relapse prevention plan you describe four different phases, where green stands for everything is fine, yellow for feeling slightly less good, orange for significantly less good and red for the actual relapse. You will go through each phase for yourself and note down what you, or your environment, can do for you if you are in a particular phase. This way it is possible to intervene early and prevent a relapse. If you nevertheless have a relapse, you can use the advice on how to pick up the thread again.

The current society requires a lot of people and people also ask a lot of themselves. Instead of making a decision, people tend to go for all the options at once. That has its advantages, but a big disadvantage is that less time is left to relax. As a result, the body becomes accustomed to the tension, after a while it is difficult to notice whether you experience tension or not. If the pressure is not compensated with relaxation, it will have both physical and mental consequences in the long run. For a healthy lifestyle it is essential to relax sufficiently. This can be done by performing relaxation and breathing exercises or by performing activities that relax you.

Sometimes there are no direct complaints, but if you experience situations, feelings or thoughts in your life that you would like to discuss with a professional for advice or a professional opinion it is possible with the sounding board. Even if you simply want to blow of steam, the soundboard is very suitable. There are no pre-planned sessions linked to the sounding board. You are free to discuss what you want. The pace at which the conversations take place can also be determined entirely at your own discretion. Some people find it pleasant to know that they have contact with the psychologist once a month, while other people like it better to have the conversations in quick succession so they can continue on their own.
For anyone who would like to talk to a psychologist.
A message from your side with a response from the psychologist is seen as one session. The content of the sessions is completely free.
The sounding board sessions can be used on their own or in combination with sessions from other themes.
These tools are aimed at identifying and testing thoughts, feelings and behavior. Characteristic of cognitive behavioral therapy, the method on which the coaching is based, is that it makes people look at a situation differently, as a result the situation is experienced differently. This sounds simple, but remember that how you think, feel and act in a situation is not for nothing. If it did not bring anything positive, you would not do it. Nevertheless, the behavior can work negatively for you. With these tools you will learn how to discover what is realistic and what your actual needs are, so that you can act accordingly.
The tools can be offered separately for people who just need a helping hand, but the tools can also be offered in combination with other themes for a full-fledged coaching program.
