I no longer believe in luck and coincidences, but in synchronicity. It's no coincidence that we have found all these people in this community. Each person comes from a different path and has a different goal, but I believe that deep down, everything starts from a common dream—vision. Let's first get to know ourselves better, then offer it to others, and let us all reach bliss. So, thank you to all the fantastic people who make up this ongoing dream community. We continue with joy, optimism, inspiration, and creativity to conquer our dream!

I won even more

Eirini Rabaouni, ACC
CSTP 7 Graduate | Life Coach | Educator | MSc Philosophy & Management

I started this program with the goal of becoming a professional coach. Throughout my training, I gained scientifically based knowledge and had meaningful conversations that everyday life often doesn't allow. I also joined a special community, connected with new people, laughed, moved, experienced, and created awareness. I challenged myself, went beyond my limits, and gained tools for self-awareness and dialogue. I completed my first coaching sessions and was evaluated according to the high criteria of the ICF. Obtaining my diploma means much more to me than just becoming a certified professional coach, although that was my initial goal. I am grateful to Barbara for the gifts and support throughout this journey.

Significant chapter the International Educational Team

Ioannis Georgiou
CSTP 6 Graduate | Coach Leader | MSc, CTMP HR Professional | Winnipeg, Canada

After extensive research both in Greece and internationally, I made the deliberate choice to enroll in a Coaching program that uniquely integrates the principles and wisdom of Ancient Greek philosophy. This decision has proven to be justified as I have been able to immerse myself in the art of coaching with a parallel approach to the teachings of the ancient Greek philosophers, who are considered the founders of modern coaching. The program offers a wealth of educational material and is thoughtfully structured to accommodate the needs of working students. Notably, the program's academic staff consists of well-respected scientists who are not only knowledgeable but also approachable and supportive.
