The unique 
3 Brains (Head, Heart and Gut) Coach Certification Training ©

Everyone is unique, and we all have 3 Brains guiding us through life. 

We have all the qualities we need inside ourselves, which are activated, depending on our decisions.

Happiness, wellness, and success result from how we respond to situations. As it is said: "We can't change the wind, but we can adjust our sails."  

The only question is:

How can we help our clients to make their best decisions and implement the actions that support their desired long-lasting change

3 Brains - Head, Heart, and Gut - Coaching Certification Training © is a gentle and still a powerful coaching methodology for letting your client:

  • Achieve long lasting change/development by connecting with themselves and their inner wisdom

  • Overcome the inner discussion of: my Head says "go left"  but my Heart or Gut are saying "go right"

  • Overcome limiting beliefs that stops them to integrate the action plan they decided

  • Create aligned actions that produces results from their a-ha’ moments. 

  • Go deeper and unleashing more potential in their personal development

  • Make decisions that lead to achievements and wellness

  • Overcome procrastination

  • Unpack complex unspoken thoughts, feelings and behaviours to arrive at solutions with greater clarity and confidence

  • Without the need to go deep into the root cause of your clients’ topics at hand, let them find the path to solve them powerfully and with ease

  • Enabling wellbeing 

  • Overcome stress and anxiety 

  • Overcome the burnout feelings

It almost seems too good to be true, but both my clients and students have reported experiencing the same results. The coaches who use these methodologies to coach their clients have also provided these results.

Why is this?


Imagine you would ask yourself: "what is stopping me from following up my decision to do or be .... ?

You can probably think of some reasons, and I assume you can even think of some solutions.
So, if you know all of this, then: "What is then truly stopping you from implementing it?"


Sometimes, your Heart and Gut Brain may not fully support a change, even if you believe it is the most logical and beneficial decision to make..

It is essential to know that this is not because they want to sabotage us - as all decisions of our 3 Brains are based on positive intentions, their only objective is to help us - and they have, based on their different responsibilities, and learned lessons, different strategies to do so. 


Why don’t they not speak up when we make that decision? 


It's possible that they did, but .... the two Brains in question don't excel at verbal communication. Instead, they communicate through sensations, which are also known as feelings. Unfortunately, many of us aren't accustomed to recognizing or paying attention to these sensations, and some may struggle with interpreting them.

Therefore understanding and speaking the language of the Heart and Gut Brain provides critical information that will enable us to coach our clients to bypass these subconscious protective mechanisms.  


What are the consequences of ignoring the signals from our Head, Heart, and Gut?

We miss the opportunity to be aware that multiple choices are available.

When that happens and we don’t listen to their perspective and align their different answers to a joint decision:

we stay reflexively loyal to old behaviour, beliefs, or philosophies

of the most dominant Brain

even when that work against us and

could cause us failure or pain!

I believe in YOU so that you can become the best.

"Initially, I was skeptical about the course but I needed coaching education hours and signed up.


Insights gained from my participation in 3 brain coaching refined my executive coaching. 

The training was unique.

The 3 brain method simplified my coaching approach and allowed me to help my clients efficiently identify challenges resulting from disconnects between the heart, head, and gut.

Since the training, I have deployed this approach to clients and have found that identifying core issues is unearthed more expediently when the head, heart, and gut discussion is infused.


Christoffel Sneijders did a fantastic job of keeping a class of internationally based; experienced coaches focused on adding essential tools to their coaching experiences.

An unexpected benefit to the course was that it helped me better understand my own issues.  

I would highly recommend the training."

"I have taken a number of courses throughout my career and must say this was one of my favourites.


I was in a class of very experienced peers, all whom had a MCC or PCC designation.

We found this was remarkably simple language that could take coaching conversations much deeper and broader than expected.


It was really quite remarkable. 

I have studied Mindfulness, EQI, Leadership theory and I am certified in multiple leadership and personality tools. I was pleasantly surprised at how complex yet simple the Three Brains theory was. 

I would highly recommend it to anyone"

 “Thank you Christoffel

 I can honestly say that this was one of the most enjoyable, interactive and genuine training programmes that I have experienced.


The combination of your style and the subject matter created a very safe space, for me at least, and I have taken a great deal from this training.


In fact, after the first day, I recommended that my three closest colleagues (covering UK, Israel and South America) read your book and have a look at your work. 

All the very best,.

For a coach, it's a WIN/WIN training and a beautiful learning journey



Strong but rather simple processes to use with most of our clients.

It's a fantastic approach to structure intuition and dare to follow it.


Super tool to prepare yourself prior to a session and be aware of your alignment (or not) Head/Heart/Gut 


During the session, use meta position, check which brain you are using and adjust if needed

....And it's amazing to see our clients discover their 3 brains, and understand the power of alignment through experimentations. 

And then explore situations following their gut intuition with an open mind an an open  heart.

Marie de Beaufort

Executive coach and Head of Operation & Marketing at 3R Consultants Europe

I enjoyed the class immensely.

I really appreciate your authority on the subject and methods of coaching. Your teaching style was engaging, and you also made the class fun.

Further, you did not shy away from any questions; though they may have been generally challenging, or even critical in some way of Three Brains, you addressed them thoroughly and to the satisfaction of the one who asked.


I really appreciate that intellectual purity and emotional vulnerability on your part!

Finally, the practicum sessions were really valuable. It’s one thing to learn from the book and lecture notes; but putting things to practice was most valuable.

Your class was money well spent, and I can personally recommend Three Brains Leadership Coaching.

"It was truly an experiential experience rooted in science, and a clear game changer personally and professionally.’


I appreciate that the learning was both knowledge base and experiential. So we learn the work. We practice the work. We reap the benefits of the work.


The manual, the techniques and the book provide a sustainable way to revisit the work to consider the coaching conversation and how I might integrate it and use it in helping my clients reach the highest outcome."

"Thank you so much, Christoffel.

I enjoyed the course and content. You created a wonderful space that encouraged learning. It was just the right number of participants for discussion and questions. I appreciated the mixture of international students.


There is a lot to absorb in the course. Having the sessions two days in a row and a week apart was helpful in sustaining interest and retention. There was a nice balance between practice and didactic learning."
