Individual Coaching - Holistic support with AVGS in Berlin

Since July 2023, the employment agency and job center have supported individual one-on-one coaching. The basis for this is the holistic support according to § 16k SGB II. If you have an AVGS, this coaching can be funded 100 percent as a voucher measure.

What is holistic support according to § 16k SGB II?

Our holistic support is an individual one-to-one coaching, which is funded via § 16k SGB II. The employment agency finances this coaching to strengthen the employability of the unemployed.

The offer is a so-called “voucher measure”, which is supported by an AVGS (activation and placement voucher) from the employment office or job center. We will be happy to help you apply for it!

The goal of our holistic support is that after coaching with us, you will once again look to the future with confidence and have planned the next steps in your private and professional life with a clear head.

For whom is this individual coaching suitable?

The individual coaching within the framework of the holistic support according to § 16k SGB II is a special offer of assistance for the unemployed with an AVGS. It suits you if you have been looking for a job for a long time and want to get a better grip on your life, but have the feeling of many major inner blockages .

For example, because unemployment and the associated professional reorientation are very challenging for you. Or because no one else but you can take care of your family – children or parents in need of care. Or because your everyday life is very stressful at the moment, and the idea of taking on a job on top of all the stress is unrealistic for you at the moment.

What is holistic care all about?

“Holistic” means: it’s not just about helping you find a job. Rather, the main point is to find out what challenges you have in your life right now and how to deal with them well.

  • The holistic support takes place within the framework of individual coaching sessions on site in Berlin.
  • The schedule and topics are specifically tailored to your needs.
  • In doing so, you as a person are at the center. With your very individual problems and challenges, with your experience – and with your strengths and abilities.

Feedback from customers

This is what our customers say about their coaching at SEQUOYA with an activation & placement voucher (AVGS)

Focus on important professional fields
The coaching helped me to focus on the professional fields that are important to me. The various exercises / tasks have contributed to making the, in part, already existing knowledge of one’s own strengths more visible. Although we had to start the coaching digitally, I felt that Heike Sohna had picked me up and understood me very well. She always had my desired goal in mind and still there was enough time to devote herself to the topics that only emerged through the new input.

Inspirational, sorting, with a large number of different techniques
My job coaching at Eleonor Grafenthin was a complete success for me. Inspirational, sorting, with a large number of different techniques and very lovingly, she accompanied me to take on different perspectives and to find and go a new professional path. Thank you very much for accompanying me, dear Eleonor, and many thanks to Sequoyah, a really nice place with very attractive rooms
Christina Gundelwein
Optimal support
My coaching with an AVGS voucher was really a great experience. Matthias Härter knew how to respond to my individual situation and to optimally support me in questions of career reorientation, application training and work-life balance. He also managed to make me think differently about upcoming decisions. He was also very flexible when it came to the topic design.

Fresh look at my work situation
I was with Mrs. Sohna for job coaching with AVGS and had a total of four appointments. This individual and efficient professional coaching at eye level was and is very enriching for my work as a freelancer.
