Silvia Otero Santiago – Passionate About Inspiring Others
During my life journey I have been involved in different professional, personal and community roles.
From business owner in the design industry in Johannesburg and later in Cape Town (Space by Design cc) to employee for United Airlines in Argentina, specialising in problem solving, giving me the opportunity to fly around the world and learn much about other cultures. Throughout the years of travelling I realised how much alike and at the same time different we all are.
As a family we moved countries 3 times finding it quite an experience to re-establish and re-invent life each time with all the challenges that implies. As a result of my life experience I realised that in order to be successful in all areas of my life I was to constantly keep evolving and changing. As Heraclitus once said “Life is a flux.”
During 2015 I decided to do something completely out of my comfort zone and embarked on a 750 km walking pilgrimage in Spain, the Walk to Santiago de Compostela, my husband decided to accompany me…what an amazing journey for our marriage!
This was a life changing experience, walking for 30 days with just 7 kg of precious belongings on my back, not knowing what the day will bring, only trusting the way.
I could not stop looking for answers and in 2016 my husband and I walked 700km in Italy, the Francigena walk to Rome.The reflections over hours of solitude about the simplicity of life, the beauty of creation, how little we need to be happy and fulfilled and the camaraderie with other fellow pilgrims was so profound that created in me the need to find more about myself and the meaning of life.After a lot of introspection, I realized that designing beautiful homes was great, but helping people to design beautiful lives was better and coaching was the answer.
“Most of the things that we think as our limits are actually delusions. We are confined only by the walls we build ourselves. Getting out of our comfort zones can be so damn hard, but we might be surprised by how things would work out in the end. Don’t set your limit, throw yourself in it!”
Richard Bach from Jonathan Livingston Seagull
As your Coach I will listen, observe and customize an individual approach to your needs, I will help you provoke solutions and strategies, learn to manage your thoughts and feelings, be creative and resourceful, to finally find body, mind and soul balance. To be healthy, content and whole.
When you choose to have a coach, you are also choosing to make time and space for yourself. You will acquire an awareness of your actual reality with full consciousness. You will create healthy changes and be able to visualise your life from a different perspective.
All this is easier to achieve with the help of a trusting and accountable partner (coach) who will help you unblock and get clarity, stop procrastinating and move towards meaningful and sustainable goals.
You deserve to breathe at your own pace, be heard without judgement, reflect who you are and what you really want from life, find your strength, balance, passion and purpose.
