You can offer listening time?

We want to thank you and would like to give you some pointers:   The initiative is always non-profit, society-oriented and free for everyone. It was founded by four practicing life coaches from Hamburg and does not pursue any economic, political or religious goals. We want to send a signal of hope and support in difficult times.   Certified and professional coaches who enjoy people and want to do something useful can offer listening time. The conversations/talks are always free of charge and are arranged between those who need to speak and the coach.   You can ask our compliancy rules here. All coaches who join REDEZEIT and dedicate themselves in the service of people who need to talk, commit/comply to these rules.

Our Mindset as a Listener

As trained coaches, we know what we are doing. Nevertheless, here are our recommendations for a helpful and meaningful approach /mindset.  

  • For the duration of the conversation, we give our undivided attention our undivided attention.

  • We respond, but do not judge. We are aware that every person lives their life individually and faces their own personal challenges.

  • We listen regardless of the topic raised, origin, background, identity, sexuality, religious or political views.

  • We try not to interrupt.

  • We give the other person space to open up and discover/explore.

  • Of course, your own personal limits also apply in this context.

  • Let the other person know when the time is up.

  • Let the other person know if you feel uncomfortable with a topic.

  • Refer to psychotherapeutic or medical services if you see the need.

  • Take care of yourself. Think carefully about how much time and space you can give.

How to get started?

 The easiest way is to advertise your participation in REDEZEIT in your social networks. You are much more likely to get people in need of talk through referral. For this purpose, we have created a logo and a text which you can request from us by email. You can use them on Instagram, Facebook, other networks or your website to inform your followers. Of course, you can also get creative yourself and design your own logo and texts. Please continue to refer to Redezeit für Dich and use the hashtag #virtualsupporttalks - this will increase the chance that the initiative will grow and become better known. 

If you would like to be listed on this website, please write an email to hallo@virtualsupporttalks.de. Include your name, your professional coaching focus (maximum 3 points), a picture and the URL to your website or an email address which we are allowed to integrate on our page. We would also like to ask you to sign our compliancy rules and to send us the signed document via email. You can sign the PDF or sign a printout. 

We wish you wonderful, profound, funny, sad and above all honest conversations. 

Your REDEZEIT team
