Hamid Homayouni 

Hamid has been offering life coaching services for many years since the founding of InnerChange back in January 2006. Prior to that; and for a few years in parallel; he was engaged in the IT industry, gaining valuable skills and insight into the corporate and high-tech world. He has also been actively involved in volunteer community work. Decades of broad and in-depth experience; ranging from coaching and counselling, to technical, managerial, entrepreneurial, and volunteer work; as well as being attuned to inter-cultural sensitivities, have helped Hamid to become an effective life coach with the ability to work with clients to develop themselves in all facets of life, including work.

Hamid’s qualifications include: Graduate Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy, Master’s Degree in Information Systems, BSc in Mathematics, Graduate Certificate in Media Studies, and ongoing Professional Development. Furthermore, he has been on the path of self-realisation for many years and has received advanced training in The Enneagram system.

More about Hamid in his own words:

For me InnerChange is not a business, it is rather a true expression of my being, of my heart and soul. Once before I thought I had put my heart and soul into another work; a high-tech start-up developing and offering Internet based services back when hardly anyone had heard of “Cloud-Services”. As one of the main founders, I was very attached to that business which I eventually had to let go. As thrilling as the journey was, that whole failed experience was indeed the beginning of a very valuable lesson that I needed to receive. My external gaze towards worldly success, and seeking happiness outside, was shattered. This helped to open a new window to the path of finding my true self; literally the beginning of my own inner change.

To live a fulfilling life means to find and to be one’s true self. It is not about having things such as status, fame, power, control, wealth, health, and so on. It is not about getting somewhere out there or up there. It is rather about discovering that we are complete and fine at our core. To uncover our innate clarity, compassion, and courage to simply be ourselves. Yet, we hardly feel that way. Why? Because we search outside for the answers; whereas the key is to work on the inner barriers that block us from experiencing ourselves as whole and fine. That is the journey of life worth taking. Other journeys might promise success, happiness and power but such achievements are temporary even if they materialise. They are not fluffing in the long run, and do not bring about true happiness and inner peace. (You can read more about this in Values and Ways and in Dear Rumi…Why am I here? Tell me about work and life purpose.)

InnerChange-HamidHomayouni-04

I work in a result oriented yet open, flexible and organic manner. I genuinely love helping people to find themselves and to be themselves; to live a fulfilling and meaningful life. I also recognise that I am probably not able to help everyone. A key lesson I learnt early on in my counselling and coaching days is that the effectiveness of therapy or coaching is not primarily about the mode, style or the techniques deployed. Evidence based research shows that successful outcomes rather depend primarily on the two areas of client strengths and therapeutic alliance (or the quality of client-coach relationship). Hence:

  • Your Strengths: Every client has a range of strengths whether they are aware of them or not. If you were my client, it would be my job to identify those strengths and re-equip you to leverage those in a new area of your life.
  • Our Relationship: Can we establish an effective client-coach relationship? You can start assessing this by getting to know me a little bit better through browsing around this site, check my client testimonials and read my blog posts. Even better, you can contact me to book a free initial consultation session.
