Not feeling well lately? Experiencing stress? Inuka Coaching can help.
Inuka's coaches are rated 4.8 / 5.
In today's society, most people are facing more and more challenges.
Those challenges can be relatively mild, such as a troubled relationship with your manager, or not having the discipline to exercise. But also more intense... Think of severe sleeping problems, a loss of someone close to you, or extreme stress.
Fortunately, something actually can be done about this!
And it's easier than you might think.
We have developed a simple but scientifically proven method that helps people to quickly reduce stress, cope better with challenges in life, or help you find the time to change something you've been wanting to change.
Step 2: Talk to your personal coach anytime and anywhere.
Our warm-hearted coaches help you feel better step by step. The sessions are anonymous and online - via chat or video call. Maybe you want to share a lot, or rather take action right away. That is up to you. Together with your coach, you map out what is going on and make a concrete plan to tackle the situation.

Frequently asked questions (and answers!)
In the first session your coach will start by listening to your story. Then you map out what is going on in your life: in your private life and work situation. The goal of each session is to create an action plan together with your coach that you can implement. Your coach will follow these steps:
1. Understand and structure the challenges in your life
At the beginning of each session, the coach listens to what you are going through in your daily life. What challenges do you encounter and how do you feel about them? The goal is to make an overview of the issues you encounter, whether it concerns work, emotions, relationships, finances, your body or spirituality. Together you come up with a list of things you want to tackle.
2. Focus on one specific problem and goal
Your coach will then help you choose the most urgent challenge on the list and set a goal for it. Sometimes it takes a while to figure out what this is. Which is totally fine and part of the process.
3. Together you make a plan
Based on your chosen goal, together you brainstorm about different solutions, choose a solution and make a SMART action plan. The session ends with a short planning of the next session. Now comes the hardest part: actually executing the plan you agreed upon. That means really going to the gym, not opening your laptop in the evening or having that dreaded conversation with your manager. But don’t worry, whether you succeed or not, your coach is on your side to support you and find a way to make it work together!
Each follow-up session starts with going through your action plan.
On the registration page you can enter an anonymous name and e-mail address (if you wish). That way we at Inuka Coaching don’t know who you are. By the way, our coaches never see your email address. They will see your chosen username (which you can choose to make anonymous).
If you do coaching sessions with us through your work, your employer will only see aggregated anonymous data, from which they cannot find out who participates, what answers someone gives to the self-scan questions, or what has been discussed in the coaching sessions. It’s important to share this anonymous data, because it encourages your employer to make the work environment healthier and not just put the responsibility on the employees.

Standard counselling and therapy
Counselling and psychotherapy are provided by medical experts. Counsellors and psychotherapists undergo extensive training to understand human psychology and learn different types of therapies. As a result, these experts can treat people in a medical way with for example addiction problems, inability to sleep or psychological disorders. They often dive deep into your history, family situation, and personality.
Our coaches on the other hand are trained in one specific method that is based on ‘problem-solving therapy’. This scientifically proven method is called the Inuka Method and has been developed by leading psychiatrists. This method uses the most commonly used coaching and therapy tools, such as ‘cognitive behavioral therapy’. In the Inuka Method these tools are only used to teach you how to deal with challenges but not to solve deeper underlying problems. Thus, this method is very effective for dealing with challenges better but not for solving bigger underlying problems, such as a medical addiction, a serious mental disorder or a trauma.
If you are not feeling well, you want to be sure that your coach can help you. We do everything we can to offer you a good coach. Below you can read some of our methods:
200+ hours of training
All coaches have undergone thorough training on the scientifically proven Inuka Method. Only after they have completed an exam they can start coaching. The training and exam are given by our team of experienced coaches, certified therapists and psychiatrists.
Strict quality control
Our quality checks do not stop after the exam. With the help of technology and regular feedback from our team of therapists, we ensure that all our coaches continue to provide good support. Do you have the misfortune that you and your coach are not a match? Don’t worry, you can switch coaches at any time!
Careful selection of coaches
Our coaches are carefully screened and selected by us. They must have a history of social engagement, be highly motivated and compassionate, and of course pass our exam.
The Inuka Method
The Inuka coaches all use the scientifically proven Inuka Method. They help you to cope better with challenges or stressful events. Unlike the offerings of many therapists or counsellors, all coaches at the Inuka service work with the same methodology to ensure you receive a comparable, high-quality service every session.
Solid research and development
In the past 10+ years a lot of research has been done into the Inuka Method. The most current research showed that 2 out of 3 employees – who were at risk of burnout or dropout – became resilient within 4 coaching sessions. They were therefore no longer at risk. In addition, we saw that 96% of all people who followed coaching sessions were better able to deal with problems. These results were published in the Cambridge Global Mental Health Journal (2021).
Our Inuka coaches can help you with different types of problems or challenges. So whether you sleep badly, are under a lot of stress, have an argument with your partner, are having problems with your manager or colleagues or are often feeling depressed, with Inuka Coaching you will feel better in simple, but powerful steps.
Inuka Coaching can help you set and achieve goals that you find important. Exercizing more often or getting out of bed earlier is easier with a coach by your side. In addition, we help you to better deal with stressful situations at work or privately. Think of a bad relationship with your manager, a high workload, a negative atmosphere at the office, but also private events such as a broken relationship, bereavement or moving to a new city.
Disclaimer: Inuka Coaching is not a medical service. If you have bigger problems such as addiction, a serious mental disorder, depression or trauma, we advise you to seek medical help.
