The journey in the art of coaching with Barbara was fascinating, the awareness and her organization in a simple and understandable way were one of the greatest gifts of her program. Along with the initiation into Aristotelian virtues and ancient wisdom. Barbara is a Guide. Open, heartfelt, with wisdom and prudence, affectionate, enthusiastic, and incredibly intelligent emotionally, he takes you by the hand and wisely guides you to a very refined form of facilitation, which holistically transforms people. It teaches you that when you become a coach, you are constantly ready to expand, change and grow even in the sharpest turns of your life, transforming vulnerability into inspiration and strength.

The fact that Barbara has incorporated ancient Greek philosophy is an added value. I would like to thank Barbara Asimakopoulou for sharing her knowledge and experience but also to congratulate her because she managed a Greek program to be recognized by the ICF and to be equal to the international programs.
