3 brains coach certification training

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

Victor Frankl: “They who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.”

"In the concentration camps, for example, in this living laboratory and on this testing ground, we watched and witnessed some of our comrades behave like swine while others behaved like saints.

We all have both potentialities within ourselves; which one is actualized depends on decisions but not on conditions.

Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except one thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation. 

Fundamentally, therefore, any person can, even under such circumstances, decide what shall become of them—mentally and spiritually."

This is what I call 3 Brains alignment: listening and be in control to all your 3 inner wisdom centers to guide you in your decisions and actions

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 to live in alignment

  • 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

  • To go deep into the root cause of your clients’ topics at hand and let them find the path to solve them so powerfully and with ease

  • Enabling wellbeing 

  • Overcome stress and anxiety 

  • Overcome the burnout feelings

  • Release the Decision Paralysis

  • To uncover & work through the underlying beliefs

I know it sounds almost too good to be true and I received feedback from my clients and students that this has been happening to them, just like I heard it back from the coaches who use these methodologies when coaching their clients.


Why is this?


Just imagine, you would ask yourself: "what is stopping you from making the decision to succeed?

Probably you can think of some reasons, and I assume you can even think of some solutions for those.

So, if you know all of this.  What is then truly stopping you from implementing it?

This is where your Heart and Gut Brain step in - as in many situations they are not supporting the change even if you think it is the logical and best thing to do.

They learned - a long time ago - that is much more beneficial for you to do behave as you did back then, as you learned in that period of time that those behaviours were the best to stay connected or safe. 

The “issue” is that our Heart and Gut Brain do NOT have the qualities of doing cause and effect analysis - projecting the result of a new behaviour or belief in the future -  as past and future is a quality that is privileged to our Head.


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 happens when we don’t listen to the response of our Head, our Heart, and our Gut?


We miss the opportunity to have the awareness that there are multiple choices available.

When that happens and we don’t listen to their perspective and align there different answers to a common 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!

My passion is to provide you with knowledge and insights on how you can assist your clients and yourself to achieve truly long-lasting change, and thrive and excel!

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

"If you compare these sessions to some of the advance courses that I've taken at ICF, they're saying the same thing. 

There's nothing new about, there's nothing that I think that would be helpful to help me further penetrate my client and help them with their needs. 

The advantage of 3 Brains coaching is that it takes you to a whole different level. 

So you're actually thinking about where these emotions and thinking comes from. But you're only looking - and this is beauty of it -  you're only looking at 3 Brains, not trying to for a million things. 

It is in your head, it is in your heart or in your gut. 

There is nothing else. 

So let's forget about all these other books, these bookshelves. 

This is it! 

It is enough to get it and maybe you think: Oh, that can't be the case. Right? With every doggone time in our coaching in these 3 days, it gets out there, every time. 

That's why I'd recommend anybody have this course"

“I was truly delighted with this programme, in particular the quality of the content, materials and research complemented by Christoffel’s abundance of knowledge and expertise which he shares with generosity and humility.


The 3-brains concept really lands with my clients, supporting them to unpack complex unspoken thoughts, feelings and behaviours to arrive at solutions with greater clarity and confidence. “

"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"

"Great choice!

I followed this program in April 2020 and it is a great one for self-awareness and self-development, besides, it provides a toolset to coach and help others to move forward.

The ICF CCEUs were a plus and guarantee of quality.

Christoffel provides his best knowledge and experience in the field of business, coaching and therapy, and the virtual experience of the online training worked out very good!"


Maria Alonso Jaén, PPC Executive Coach and Leadership Trainer

 “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,.

The 3 brains certification training blends cutting edge neuroscience knowledge with very effective coaching skills building.  


The concepts and the tools are easy to integrate into your coaching practice and they add another dimension to the work we do as coaches.


It takes coaching conversations much deeper and broader. It encourages and supports a shift in thinking and behaviour, taking it off automatic pilot and putting it into manual operation.


The 3-brains concept really lands with clients, supporting them to reveal complex unspoken thoughts, feelings and behaviours to arrive at solutions with greater clarity and confidence. 


Chris is a great facilitator and thought-provoking, energising coach he has very deep knowledge on the subject. 


Many thanks Christoffle, wonderful training and I highly recommend it to other coaches.

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."

As soon as the 3 brains coaching course announcement came into my mailbox I knew I had to submit.

Now I really understand why it can be so difficult for myself to set boundaries. Now I know I have to teach my gut brain that everything is okay. And not let the other brains take over.

This is a pattern I often see in my coachees as well; a big head- and heart-brain and less self care and self-esteem.

This course gave me practical tools and language to work around it!

I am so happy that I did Christoffel's Three Brains Coaching Training!

The tools and techniques taught were POWERFUL and the whole process connected me with a love of coaching.

In the course, I cleared many blocks to success in relationships, health and career and helped others to do so too.

I connected to my inner child and cried in every coaching practice I received. which has been life changing. 

It was wonderful making new friends from around the world and Christoffel was an excellent teacher and guide, remaining calm and friendly, loving, funny and professional, no matter what question or situation arose. I

loved being led and found the information, learning about the head, heart and gut brains, fascinating as well. 

The whole experience was excellent and I highly recommend this course!

Highly recommend Christoffel’s 3 Brains certification course 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻


Christoffel is one of the rare instructors who gives genuine care and attention to every participant.


When you are in Christoffel’s course, you feel ’seen’ and supported. He remembers vital details about every single person and tailors his feedback and approach accordingly.


Christoffel cares about his students’ outcomes and spares no effort to address every question or concern. I don’t think there was anyone (in the course) who wasn’t touched by Christoffel’s awesome heart ❤️, which does absolute wonders in combination with his great skills.


There is a lightness of spirit about him and ego-free confidence, which attracts a similarly amazing group of people (to the course).


Christoffel is a truly great coach with whom it is a blessing to meet, difficult to part (you don't want the course to end) and impossible to forget.

Kamila Shakirova, MAcc, US CPA, Local CPA, Auditor of RoK, Certified Professional Coach in training

I consider my application in the 3 Brains Coach Training as one of the best investments.


Christoffel is an amazing professional and trainer, able to create a great atmosphere of trust, humour and support in the class, sharing his deep and profound knowledge of the topic, giving very concrete techniques I can use in ma coaching practice.


I appreciate his energy during all lessons, sparkling through the screens.


I honestly recommend this training to everybody who is interested in his or her own development as a coach as well as to everybody who wants to broad his/her coaching portfolio.
