Investing in the next generation

Carico Coaching offers young adults a platform to realize their dreams and goals. We support them in recognizing their personal strengths and using them effectively. Our aim is not only to support them in realizing their projects and ideas, but also to promote their personal growth.

We believe that financial restrictions should not hinder their growth. That is why we are looking for sponsors who are willing to invest in coaching teenagers and young adults.

Making a difference in the lives of young people

Who do we coach?

Who can I sponsor?

You can sponsor young people who have applied for a scholarship or support a specific person. You can also sponsor a specific coach.

What are the conditions for the scholarship?

The young people apply to us and we look to see whether they and their topics suit us and whether we could be the right people for them. We pay particular attention to their motivation. They do not have to provide any proof of income or similar, but they do have to make a personal contribution according to their means.

Will I receive an invoice?

We are independent contractors and will issue you with an invoice. We are still in the process of becoming a non-profit organization, which will then also be able to issue donation receipts.

What information do I get?

We do not pass on any content from the coaching sessions. If you are supporting a specific person, you will be told the date of a meeting, otherwise the date and the general topic, e.g. “time management”.

The coaches


Laura Großhennig
Laura Pohl

“Relieving, enlightening, motivating, bringing about change” is how Laura wants people to experience coaching sessions with her. She loves it when people have “aha” experiences that lead to them being able to shape their lives and their vocation with greater satisfaction and inner joy.
She studied Psychosocial Counseling and Mediation (conflict mediation) in the Master’s program and Social Work in the Bachelor’s program and completed several additional courses. Other people describe her as loving, compassionate, warm-hearted, helpful and friendly as well as good-humored and energetic.
In coaching sessions, she likes to use methods that support you in recognizing what you have within you and how you can confidently realize your potential (resource orientation and activation), that help to get to the bottom of behaviors, to find, practice and implement new ways of acting (cognitive behavioral therapy) and methods that provide information about stress factors and problem origins (systemic therapy).
It is important to her to approach you in an empathetic, authentic and appreciative manner, to help you to help yourself and to ensure sustainable progress.

How our coaching works

What does the scholarship cost?

The Carico Coaching scholarship includes a symbolic personal contribution of 5 euros per coaching session. This contribution underlines the personal commitment and appreciation of the coachees for the process and the professional support they receive.

In the case of on-site coaching, you may also incur travel and accommodation costs.

How does the application process work?

There are four steps to your application:

You send us your written application.

We conduct a free introductory meeting. We will clarify whether we are a good fit, whether your topic can be addressed through coaching with us and what the framework conditions are.

We start the coaching.

Every three meetings, we discuss together whether it still makes sense to continue the coaching.

How long does the coaching last?

You decide the duration and frequency of the coaching sessions at Carico Coaching. Individual meetings last between 60 and 90 minutes. You should feel positive effects after about three conversations. Most coaching sessions end after 6 to 9 meetings. Initially, the sessions usually take place every two weeks, later less frequently. The coaching sessions can also be paused for months or years as required. There is no minimum number of calls that you are obliged to book and no notice period.

Is there a guarantee for the coaching?

There is no guarantee for coaching, as success depends on many factors. In addition to the active participation and commitment of the coachee, individual circumstances and the specific situation also play a role. The process and effectiveness of coaching can be influenced by these external and personal factors.

How does online coaching work?

Online coaching at Carico Coaching works via Zoom, Teams or WhatsApp. This method allows you to take part in meetings regardless of your location. The coaching is designed to be just as personal and effective as an on-site meeting. The online platforms offer a safe space for conversations and care is taken to ensure that privacy and confidentiality are maintained at all times.

Can I first get to know a coach without obligation?

Yes, at Carico Coaching you have the opportunity to get to know a coach without obligation. This introductory meeting serves to establish a basis for trust and understanding and to find out whether the chemistry between you and the coach is right. Such an initial conversation can be crucial to ensure that the coaching relationship is appropriate and purposeful for both parties.

What role does the Christian faith play in your coaching?

The Christian faith has deeply shaped our personalities, our world view and our image of humanity. That is why we are convinced that there is something special in every person and that they have what it takes – even if it may not be so visible at the moment.

In our coaching you can be who you are and believe what you want. We even like it when you come to me with lots of questions and doubts and express them in front of us. Especially in the phase of growing up (and not only there), it is harmful to be pressed into a prefabricated mold.

What are the limits of coaching?

Coaching at Carico has certain limits. It is not a substitute for therapeutic or medical treatment for mental illness. Coaches are not qualified to make such diagnoses or carry out such treatments. In addition, coaching is solution-oriented and focuses on personal and professional development, but it does not intervene in deeper psychological problems. The effectiveness of coaching also depends on the active participation and openness of the coachee.

Is there a duty of confidentiality?

Yes, Carico Coaching has a duty of confidentiality. The contents of the discussions remain confidential and are not passed on.

However, there is one exception: the supervision group, in which conversations are discussed anonymously to improve the quality of the coaching.

If the interviews are paid for by third parties on your behalf (e.g. your parents), they will only receive proof of the date of the interview, not its content or topic. Example: “We held a 90-minute coaching session with Alexandra Müller on 27.03.2024”

If a sponsor pays for your coaching as part of a scholarship, they will only receive a message that an interview has taken place, but will not learn your name or the content of the coaching. Example: “On 27.03.2024, we held a 90-minute coaching session on the topic of time management.”

In addition, notes are taken during the interviews, which you will receive afterwards.
