Life Coach Munich | About me


My name is Timo ten Barge and I have been working with people for more than 20 years. First as a language teacher and for about 10 years as a life coach.

Since my student days – during which I studied psychology and philosophy – I have been interested in what needs and motivations people have and what goals they pursue.

Among the questions that fascinate me are how people communicate, what motivates people, how they spend (or pass) their time. Whether they are more self-directed or more other-directed, how they seek their place in life, what goals they have, how they give meaning to their lives.
