My special interest is to work with people who want to be the healthiest and happiest version of themselves, despite the challenges that life has to throw at them. If you feel anxious and stuck and find it difficult to make sense and cope with whatever is challenging you. I would love to help you.
I know it is difficult to maintain a healthy balance or be in a content space with clarity when life is tough with many balls in the air. We lose ourselves amongst so many priorities and responsibilities that we forget what is really important to us. Maybe your life did not turn out the way you wanted it to be, or you lost your identity somewhere down the line or happiness stays a moving target for you. I get it. I left my corporate job at the age of 40 to pursue my dream to establish my own business and to become the manager of my time and destiny. It is now 19 years later, and my journey was filled with challenges, massive personal growth, successes and failures. I have learned that if you don’t change something, nothing will change. If your current life does not reflect your values, you will suffer. The only constant thing in life is the reality of change. If you can’t manage through change with a growth mind set, you will stay stuck and always feel like a failure.
I am an experienced businessperson who is also fully trained in the science of nutrition and lifestyle factors that affect health (mental and physical). I am also trained in the psychology of changing perceptions and behavior; to manage anxiety, low self-esteem and confidence, reframing of limiting beliefs and thinking errors, as well as to develop new stories and possibilities. When you work with me you will understand what is important to you, in line with your values in context of your whole life. You will be clear on where you want to be, and what it is that you need to change. I will help you find ways to get there and develop your skills to reframe your thinking in a way that will serve you. Life is not perfect, but you can find a level of contentment and consistency in how you deal with it. My job is to mentor, coach, motivate and support you.
In summary, if you struggle with your health, weight or with life, your job or your business, I can help you and will look at you as a whole person and how you relate and connect to everything else around you. I am a very good listener, with a solution focused coaching approach.
It always starts with a free assessment call, zoom session or personal visit. The purpose of the assessment is for me to see if I am the right coach professionally to support you, and for you to see if I am the right fit for you.
