Theoretical part defines psycho-physical health, correlated with work environment, introduces guidelines of health promotion and places coaching as a contributor with elements that effect one’s health. Theory part of this thesis defines psycho-physical health in correlation with working environment, introduces ways of promoting health at work place and placed couching as a big support and contribution towards one’s wellbeing and health.

It was monitored with collected meeting materials, meeting evaluations and based on the entire process. Questionnaire analysis about psycho-physical being and circle of balance before and after the process ended was conducted and evaluated. After the meetings were over a focused interview with each individual participant was implemented. Gathered data enable following answers to research questions: based on clients self-evaluations couching process contributes to support good health as all of them noticed changes in their psycho-physical being. In addition to that they reported to be more confident, they handled work pressure easier and were more effective. Based on their self-evaluation all this made a positive impact on their health.
