This insideout coaching was suggested by my boss when I told her about the difficulties I had in managing the situation of my husband being out of work and myself not having more evolution possibilities in my job. The Profilingvalues analysis at the beginning of the coaching reinforced my self-confidence and gave me new hope that I can succeed even if it is a difficult period in my life. Through the coaching process I started being more open and I could apply internally for another job. I could as well support my husband in handling his difficulties. I would recommend Iris Patricia Furer. She is a very insightful person and passionate in what she is doing.

All sustainable success is built on personal performance. I have got to know Iris as the catalyst to help me build this sound and stable basis for performing at my personal best, and in line with my best self. Her unique talent in 1) helping people dig as deep as needed into any issues or perceived barriers, and resurface same yet different, at the “next level”, and 2) supporting people to access, unfold and live their personal potential is something that I greatly appreciate and admire. Her rare capacity of doing this in a warm, very personal, safe and welcoming environment, always makes me feel appreciated and valued just the way I am. Guiding me through my personal journey as if it was her own, yet not being intrusive at all, is what I really want to recommend to everyone in search for personal development in order to thrive in the best possible way. And the results are sustainable – for me personally, which then also shows professionally, socially, or just simply in touch with friends and family.

“The profilingvalues online-test resulted partly in a confirmation of what I already knew about myself, as well as new insights, in particular in current experience that I wasn’t consciously aware of. Very useful to recognize both strengths, and issues that I currently have. I was also impressed by the fact that it took me less than a half hour to answer the questions that led to this amazingly useful report.
Maarten Botterman, Chairman of the Board, Public Interest Registry
"Was ich am meisten am Coaching von Iris Furer schätzte sind die folgenden Punkte: Sie holt mich zu Beginn auf natürliche Art ab (ohne grosses „Drumherum“) und wir können direkt in die Themen einsteigen. Die Prozessführung empfinde ich als extrem gekonnt, da sie ihr Tempo sofort an das meinige anpasst (mal bin ich sehr schnell, mal brauche ich mehr Zeit), bei Themenwechsel schnell mitgehen kann, aus gedanklichen Sackgassen herausführt und vielfach kreative Lösungsansätze findet.
U.R., Leadership Assessment Consultant, Switzerland
"Frau Furer wurde mir als Coach empfohlen, da ich in einer Phase der beruflichen Neuorientierung in einer Sackgasse gelandet war und mir herkömmliche Coachings nicht mehr weiterhelfen konnten. Die Coachings bei Frau Furer haben mir geholfen, andere Perspektiven für Entscheidungen zu finden und losgelöst vom reinen Kopfentscheid auch den Bauch als gewichtige Stimme mit einzubeziehen und ernst zu nehmen
E.B., Consultant, Switzerland
"Iris is a talented and empathetic conscious coach who has a huge range of skills and insights to facilitate quick and lasting transformations with her clients. She is a focussed, no-nonsense coach, with a depth of experience in personal and professional change. If you get a chance to work with her, take it - you will be doing yourself a huge favour!"
Kevin Billett, CEO Conscious Company, UK
Der unmittelbare Anlass, in ein Coaching zu gehen, waren einerseits die Vermutung, dass meine Probleme mit dem Rücken etwas mit meiner Einstellung dem Leben / Beruf gegenüber zu tun haben könnten und andererseits die Erfahrung, dass ich mir mit eingeschliffenen Verhaltensmustern das Leben schwer mache und mich damit in meiner persönlichen Entwicklung selbst bremse. [...] Inzwischen gehe ich seit gut einem Jahr regelmässig zu ihr ins Coaching. Die Art, wie Frau Furer die Gespräche führt, schätze ich sehr, besonders die Mischung aus Wertschätzung und Konfrontation. Frau Furer führt und doch bleibt die Verantwortung bei mir. Der Weg führt in die Tiefe / zu alten Erfahrungen und doch geschieht jedes Mal der Transfer in den konkreten Alltag.
L.M., Senior Profession Counselor, Switzerland
Due to a professional re-orientation I wanted more clarity as to whether the new direction that I wanted to take would suit me at all. A friend recommended me to get in touch with Iris. I have never regretted to do so, although the sessions were not always easy for me and for sure very deep. Iris Patricia Furer has a sensitive, respectful and appreciative way to guide through the depths of the soul and so I could face my fears and insecurities, and I felt after each session to have been rewarded for my future life and bit by bit I came to myself and my true identity. [...] I appreciate her as Transformation Specialist also particularly because she is very authentic and clear and has a rich methodological fundus, with which she creatively and flexibly addresses the current needs and handles any issues in coaching. And laughter and tears, peace and vigor, strength and weakness, letting go, preserve, cherish ... everything has its place in her coaching. As in real life. Because that's the point.
