MINDBAR® exists to help you move out of your own way and start prospering!
HAPPINESS STARTS IN THE MIND
We know that happiness (and unhappiness) begins in the mind. Our mission is to help you get out of your own way. You can choose which thoughts and feelings you want to pay attention to, and which hold you back from achieving your goals in life. Learn to stay calmer in stressful situations, make better decisions, and simply be happier. We use a variety of techniques: mindfulness-based mental training, coaching, cognitive behavioral techniques, and meditation.
Individual needs analysis in the first sessions through classic coaching and consulting interviews, questionnaires and assessment tools.
Depending on your needs, we use a combination of cognitive-behavioral techniques, practical exercises, homework, and various training sessions to measurably achieve the coaching goal(s).
The techniques and methods include: Mindfulness training, skills training (such as time management, social skills, emotionally focused work, beliefs, and, if necessary, exploring past experiences that might have a direct effect on your current mind-set), mental training, and body awareness exercises
Mindcoach for Companies
MINDCOACH helps managers, employees and even entire teams to avoid being distracted by stress or even their own thoughts. Side effects are: more (sustainable) stress resistance, improved ability to concentrate, better decision-making, higher ability to stay calm and composed, and overall higher productivity and creativity within the company.

WHAT EXACTLY IS "COACHING"?
I am a clinical psychologist (M.Sc.), and in addition to my work at the MINDBAR®, I also work as a therapist/counselor in a clinic for psychotraumatology. My approach there is also mindfulness based. I also have a Master Business Administration, so many years of experience in the “business world”. My coaching approach is therefore not only mindfulness-based, but goal-oriented and pragmatic. My goal as a coach is to send you on your way as soon as possible, equipped with your own tools and skills.
This is important: I believe you already have all the answers within you. My job is to accompany you and help you to find the answers that are already within you. Mindfulness helps by paying less attention to our unhelpful, superfluous thoughts so that you can find the real answers, and start making the right decisions in your job, career, and life.
HOW DOES THE FIRST SESSION GO?
If you then decide to take part in a coaching session, we will discuss how to proceed. There are several options, which depend on various factors: Which topic you bring to coaching, your goals, and much more. Therefore, a first preliminary talk is good to discuss all of this.
If you are interested in a free preliminary talk, you can call me or write an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
CAN I DO COACHING ONLINE?
HOW DOES COACHING WORK?
Goals should be SMART (Specific Measurable Achievable Reasonable Time Bound). For your coaching, we want to define your coaching goal together, so that you actually achieve it!
In the subsequent sessions, we will then work on the goal. However, it is important to know that your goal can change during the coaching process. If this is the case, we will discuss openly and transparently whether your timing for the coaching might need to change (maybe more or less sessions) and how we will proceed.
HOW DOES THE COACHING WORK?
2. MINDGAPS…Only when you have sorted your mind, can you then pay less attention to the harmful and unhelpful beliefs, drivers and thoughts. At this stage we identify any inner stumbling blocks that stand in your way.
3. MINDDRIVERS … It is also important to become aware of where your strengths and motivations are. What drives you? What activities, environments, etc. give you energy? We want MORE OF THIS! Only then can you recognize which goals are meaningful and which thoughts will lead you closer to a fulfilled, happy life.
4. MINDTRAIN… With specific and focused training, you can strengthen and refine your mind to put your new goals into practice.
DO YOU OFFER BUSINESS COACHING IN COMPANIES?
ARE YOU INTERESTED? Schedule an appointment in person or on the phone/video for a (non-binding) interview. Alternatively, I can come to you and give a 30-minute presentation/lecture on the topic of mindfulness and my work as a coach. In this way you (or your employees) can experience me “live” and can also ask questions directly.
MINDBAR SERVICES FOR COMPANIES
Individual coaching for employees. The topics vary according to requirements and are defined after the initial interview. In this case there are two initial meetings: 1) with the client, and 2) with the coachee/client.
Team coaching and workshops. The topics vary according to your needs and are defined after the initial meeting. This can be classical business coaching, but also seminars and workshops for burnout prevention.

ABOUT ME – KERRI CUMMINGS
I started my career as a management consultant (Master Business Administration; M.B.A.), a profession that was very labor-intense but successful. On my way “up” one day I asked myself “Why am I doing this?”. I was successful, but not happy. This was the start of a new adventure to find myself. A long journey followed, on which I found purpose and passion in psychology. When I discovered mindfulness, I knew immediately that on the basis of mindfulness I wanted to help other people to cope with their problems.
Mindfulness helps me to be in the here-and-now, not to cling so much to my many thoughts and not to take my own inner critic so seriously. Mindfulness plays a very important role in my life and in the education of my children, and it forms the foundation for my psychological counselling and coaching practice.
