Klaus Johansen ~ Coaching for Change
I have had more than 25 years of experience working with people, improving sexual and mental health. Today I am Coaching for change and resilience by creating a safe, fun and caring environment for you to tackle the challenges of your life and work.
Through my life I have lived experience as an expat, as a member of the LGBTQ community, as a health care worker and as a family member of individuals with mental health issues. I have lived in different countries and have worked in charities, businesses, government and public health organisations in three different countries in Europe. This has given me the knowledge and experience to talk about very intimate and sometimes difficult issues, with a wide range of people.
Together we can create an environment where you will find courage, resilience and inspiration to tackle the issues that are holding you back from reaching your potential and contentment.

Photos & videos
Introductory session: 60 minutes, no charge. This is to get to know each other and to see if we can work together towards your goals.
Coaching via video call (Zoom or Skype): 60 minutes - £40. This is very handy as you can be anywhere in the world with a good internet connection and get your coaching from me.
Coaching while walking in the Victoria park: 60 minutes - £60. Some people find it easier to talk while walking. This can be particularly helpful for those who find it difficult to or are not used to talking about or expressing their feelings and more profound, personal issues.
Face to face Coaching in Brighter spaces in Islington (or in an agreed venue of your choice): 60 minutes - £80. This session is held in a welcoming, warm, beautiful room in Islington at Brighter Spaces, 2A Prebend St, London N1 8PT, London.
If, after the first session, we agree to continue working together, I will ask you to commit to a minimum number of sessions (usually 4 or 6). You do not have to pay for all the sessions in advance, however, advance payment of six or more will entitle you to one of those sessions free of charge. You can stop at any time should you not be happy with the coaching. You can, of course, decide to continue on after these sessions as well, either straight away or after a break.
I ask clients to commit in advance as this often helps give both stability and drive to the sessions. We both have clarity around each others intentions to continue and it avoids any unnecessary pressure to cram too much in each session, so this often feels like a more generous and gentle session. Equally, we are both clear of the intended timescale and this helps create some positive impact in the sessions.
