Dr. Achim Goeres

Process facilitator – Astrophysicist – Musician

Having grown up in a small village in most-easterly Hesse, in the shadow of the inner-German wall, Achim moved to Berlin to study physics. Following the award of his PhD in theoretical astrophysics, until 1999 he conducted research at the Technical University of Berlin into complex systems and chemical processes at the edge of the beginning of life in the universe.

Achim has frequently attended training workshops in process oriented psychology based on the work of Arnold and Amy Mindell, and since 1992 has also studied Improvisation Theatre with Keith Johnstone and Creative African Dance with Elsa Wolliaston. He concluded his training in Processwork in 1998 with a ProcessFacilitator Certificate.

Shortly afterwards he began his freelance career as a coach. His teaching at different universities and colleges, jointly with his partner Tanja Hetzer, focuses primarily on intercultural and interdisciplinary workshops in conflict training, teamwork, and the art of leadership. Together they facilitate group processes, supervise teams and organisational projects, and coach people in management positions. Their collaboration further specialises in relationship coaching.

In the academic year 1996/97 Achim initiated the project ‘Interdisciplinary Communication’ at the TU Berlin and has since led this course, now jointly with Tanja. Together, in 2010, they established a 3-year long training in N-Process Facilitation and teach the course ‘Inner Competencies’ at the World Peace Academy Basel for Masters students.

Achim Goeres regularly gives concerts as a musician (organ and piano), is father to four grown-up children, lives in Berlin, and works in Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Austria and the UK.
