The Training

If you ever have desired to learn… – or wondered if there are 😉

  • Ways to “become the change you wish to see in the world” (you love this one?)
  • Methods to regulate your personal level of empathy,
  • Gain in emotional stability in challenging situations – on duty and elsewhere,
  • Ability to constructively handle relationships – with colleagues and personally,
  • Methods to tap into your superficial and deep resources,
  • Strategies to implement your progress in your work and personal life,
  • Ways to effectively help others to achieve all of the above…

… this is Your chance!

Every true opportunity for transformation involves both the professional and the personal “You” (which can and should not be separated, after all). Hence there are group sessions and individual sessions, as well as rich audiovisual materials:

  • up to 12 x 1.5hrs group sessions (webcam), once every two weeks, scheduled during weekends
  • 3-5 0.5 hr individual sessions (webcam)
  • up to 12 hours audio material (for stream/download)
  • several online presentations

All sessions will be held personally by founder M.B.


Upon successful completion of the training you will be certified with an EmotionCoaching Basic License which enables you to run EC coaching groups at EMSA events under supervision by an EC senior coach.

How many seats are available?

As Matthias’ capacity is limited – and a group of 9 trainees already needs a great deal of attention – we have to limit this first round to one batch. Additionally, Google Hangout (our video platform of choice) has a limit of 9+1 participants, this will be the limit we have to get along with this time.

What happens if I don’t get a seat?

No one misses out. If you don’t get a seat this time you will be added to a closed list that receives periodical exclusive or early-preview contents from the “Doctors With Passion” Program by This alone makes your application worthwhile.

What happens if I cannot make it to a scheduled online session?

We know you’re busy, too! Online meetings will be scheduled during weekends approx. bi-weekly, 1.5hrs each, and well in advance, so you can plan accordingly. It is mandatory to attend 8 of 12 sessions for certification. As these sessions will focus on exchanging your experiences with Matthias and within the group, it is not a problem if you miss even a few sessions in a row.

Further questions?

Please get back to me at in case of any further inquiries. I will be happy to help!
