Helga Odendahl

Dipl. Psychologist


Behind a behavior are values and motives. What are they? I see the first stage of a coaching session as finding out. The starting point: our jointly agreed goals …

Entrepreneur, business coach and supervisor, depth psychological psychotherapist, group therapist and coach trainer – that is me, your coach Helga Odendahl. Therefore you can expect a diagnostically valuable view and a deep-lying source to help people in their development in our common coaching process.

Your coach, your sparring partner: practitioner, with a suitcase full of tools

A high level of practical relevance, numerous proven methods and my professional training as a psychotherapist make me a successful sparring partner, critic and provider of impulses and feedback. In this way you can effectively tackle changes in your daily business.

Via depth psychology: uncover motives, solve conflicts, tap into energy sources

Unconscious influences in your person can block intentional changes. My depth-psychologically oriented approach enables you to tackle inner conflicts. For example, when your gut says something different than your head when making decisions.

My feedback: open, honest and involved

We work with you in an open and honest atmosphere to answer your questions, fulfill your professional wishes and develop your strengths and personal motives. My psychotherapeutic background offers you comprehensive emotional competence for all your coaching needs.

“Ms. Odendahl’s coaching helped me to further develop my leadership qualities as a manager. The contact to my employees has improved immensely”.

Peter G. – Head of Department
