What is wingwave coaching?
Wingwave® Coaching is an extremely effective technique which originates from Germany. This scientifically proven method is a profound, yet gentle process which involves shifting off stuck emotion, stress, reprogramming negative thoughts, limiting beliefs and unhelpful habits. It also helps to bind in positive emotional resources which are ideal for meeting and exceeding personal goals and ambitions.
Wingwave® incorporates EMDR (REM waving) combined with muscle testing (similar to Kinesiology) to navigate into subconscious stress triggers and beliefs which can then be “waved” away gently, the same as we do in natural REM sleep. Wingwave® creates powerful lasting results in a short space of time, isn’t that what everyone wants or is it just me?
In addition, this scientific method is the perfect accompaniment to any personal or business coaching practice. Wingwave® has international success in business coaching and corporate work, athletic sports and even dentistry. I offer wingwave training to coaches, consultants and therapists, click here for further info.
wingwave® coaching has had profound and life changing results with my clients, it’s very quick and tangible and they will often leave having felt big shifts either in perspective or emotionally. As someone who is passionate about tangible shifts, I use wingwave as my primary change tool in coaching.
If your personal challenges have interfered with you living your life to your fullest, how much longer are you willing to put up with it? There is more to life than pushing problems away, putting up with anxiety and sadness, lack of self belief and self worth or not being able to “over-come” pain.

How wingwave® Coaching Helped Me
I’ve had some amazing personal breakthroughs with wingwave® and the reason I trained in it was because I was so impressed with the quick results.
As an emotional eater for much of my young-ish life, I was always on the hunt to find that “miracle” cure. I had tried many different approaches to include counselling, EFT and hypnotherapy but nothing ever stuck. My belief was that I would be the last person on this planet having failed at every hurdle to kick the habit. I signed up for wingwave coaching sessions and the changes stuck!
My second success was related to physical back pain which turned out to be more emotional than physical. My practitioner was able to navigate to a situation in my past that had caused the aching and by using the power of the myostatik test (see below) my Coach was able to navigate into the exact underlying stress trigger and gently “wave” away the “stuck emotion”. The back pain disappeared. Amazing!
Here’s the science……
The Butterfly Effect – The scientific theory that a single occurrence, no matter how small, can change the course of the universe forever. That even the flutter of a butterfly’s wings can cause a hurricane on the other side of the world. If you change even the smallest of life’s details, you completely change its outcome.
Wingwave® is an effective, yet gentle coaching method which works by dissolving emotional stress and subconscious blocks for uplifting results in just a few (1-3) sessions. Created by two German Psychologists Cora Besser-Siegmund and Harry Siegmund, wingwave coaching has over 20 years scientifically proven research which continues to take place at both the University of Hamburg and University of Cologne. Wingwave is a big success internationally, particularly in Germany, Switzerland, Spain and Mexico. There are collectively around 8000 Coaches practicing across the world.
Wingwave® combines several extremely effective and well-proven coaching techniques to achieve immediate, profound and long-lasting changes. This innovative method is the preferred technique for addressing all areas of life that are connected with stressful memories and stuck emotions regarding past and future events that impact on your sense of well-being and accomplishment.
wingwave® Coaching helps you to:
- Mentally prepare for presentations and public speaking
- Build personal resources
- implement changes in areas you have felt stuck
- Overcome exam stress
- Dissolve mental blocks that sabotage your success
- Overcome personal and professional disappointments and setbacks
- Transform your limiting thought and behavioural patterns
- increase your stress-resilience, creativity, and overall well-being
wingwave® works by combining:
- Bilateral Hemisphere Stimulation – Gently enforced REM (Rapid Eye Movement) naturally stimulating auditory, kinaesthetic and visual through a series of back and forth movements.
- Neuro-Linguistic Coaching – Use of questioning techniques, statements and “buzz words” to enhance sensory experience and navigation.
- The myostatik test is used by the coach for precise navigation into the exact point of stress triggers and blocks. The thumb and finger are gently squeezed together and the coach is able to investigate the effect that certain words and statements have on the body. The accuracy of the muscle test has been tested and proved effective by a series of research projects in Universities.

How Does wingwave® Coaching Work?
Emotions are “energy in motion” and should naturally move through us. But they can sometimes get stuck when we feel overwhelmed, stressed or try to suppress them. Have you ever been in a situation at work where you have felt so stressed and upset but you’ve had to hide it? Your mind will push the stressful experience to the back for processing later as you continue to get on with your day. But you feel hurt, rejected, angry, embarrassed etc. Under normal circumstances these emotions fade and you “get over them”. But if the “negative” emotions do not fade due to sleep disruption or because the stressful event has not been subconsciously processed during REM sleep, you remain“stuck” in this past conflict which can lead to a secondary problem in the form of anxiety, panic, negative thinking.
Sabotaging patterns of behaviour are caused when a person tries to subconsciously move away from pain and into pleasure. This can be related to subconscious fears or habitual and addictive behaviour. An example would be when a person uses a prop such as alcohol, food, smoking and drugs to try to suppress their pain. However the pleasure or numbness does not last and the emotions get stuck.
During moments of intense stress, both brain hemispheres no longer cooperate in an optimal way. The emotions get “stuck.”
When a stressful event is experienced it is normally processed during our sleep as the subconscious mind works to file it all away, however this does not always happen. During the REM phase (Rapid Eye Movements) our eyes move horizontally very quickly, and our stressful and traumatic experiences are processed. Hence it is the perfect self-healing procedure for emotional upheaval i.e “Sleep on it!”.
However, the increasing level of stress many people are exposed to every day keeps them from processing stressful events during their sleep. Restless sleep and sleeping pills can completely impede the important REM phase which leads to a constant pattern of negative thinking. If emotions that are associated with certain events in the past are not properly processed, the situation is like a CD that has a scratch: the processing gets stuck in the nervous system at a certain point.
A wingwave® intervention simulates an REM phase while the client is awake. The client’s eyes follow the coach’s fingers waving in front of his/her face and the “stuck” emotions begin to be processed at a rapid rate. The eye movements allow the brain hemispheres to work together in a coordinated way and the previously “stuck” emotions start to “move” again. During the waving process the client may experience some intense feelings, but they are perfectly endurable and do not last longer than a minute. The mental block that was caused by extreme stress disappears.
As the intervention completely re-activates the formerly blocked mental capacities, it enables the brain to find its own creative solutions, making use of its already existing resources. The client can gain some surprising wisdom and flashes of insight during the intervention. The effects of wingwave® Coaching can be reinforced, if necessary, with the methods of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming).
“Wing” in the word wingwave® comes from the wing beat of a butterfly. According to chaos theory, this tiny force has the power to change the weather, if the beat occurs at exactly the right time and place. In a similar way, in order for your coaching session to make changes possible, we will select an exact starting point for your wingwave® coaching based on your current physical and emotional needs by applying a muscle response test (“O-ring test”).
The wing metaphor also depicts how the brain hemispheres work together to support intellectual flights and to secure successful landings. “Wave” conjures up the term “brainwave” as in “brilliant idea” or “flash of inspiration”. And exactly these kinds of brainwaves are triggered by targeted wingwave coaching.
