In order to maintain structure and harmony, society is set up with rules that sometimes influence our choices even without us noticing. This can be misleading at times as we begin to follow a very narrow and general path of what is “right” and what is “wrong”, what is expected of us and what is not.
Do you feel you want to make a change in your life but aren’t quite sure what change that might be or in which direction to turn?
Do you find yourself often thinking of what you ‘should’ do, have, feel? You ‘should’ be happy with what you have even if you have to settle; You ‘should’ have your life figured out even if inside you feel you don’t; You ‘should’ have the great career, the stable relationship, the perfect balance but somehow you are left feeling stressed, unmotivated, dissatisfied.
Do you believe there is more to life than how you are living it? That life can be more fulfilling, joyful, purposeful and that you can feel more comfortable, confident and authentic?
You’re not alone. It isn’t too late. You have what it takes.
In order to move forward, some moments in life call upon us to make a change.
At the age of thirty I found myself at a fork in the road. I had done everything I was taught to do, I had followed the “right” path, educated myself, found a good job and gained the respect of my peers. And yet, despite all I had accomplished, I didn’t feel fulfilled, I felt frustrated and confused. Was this just something everyone felt at one point or another? Were my expectations from life too high? Was I being spoiled to think that my job should provide me with the type of fulfillment and gratification I felt I was missing?
I tried to push away the nagging questions that kept coming up but my motivation to continue as things were was decreasing with every passing day. I didn’t believe I was too old to make a change in my situation, I didn’t believe that this was all life could be about and decided to transform the nervousness I felt into an energetic and positive force.
The Co-Active coaching method speaks to me because it focuses on the whole person and encourages building on strengths and solutions rather than lingering on weaknesses and problems.
Questions concerning my career are what initially motivated me to start working with a coach but what I learned in the process was that the key to creating more satisfaction and less imbalance in my life couldn’t be found in my professional life or in any other outside source; it was and always is within me.
By the end of the coaching journey I discovered that what motivates me and gives me a deep sense of satisfaction and fulfillment is helping other people ; not by doing something for them but rather by empowering them to do it for themselves.
I am just like you. I have been where you are and am here to support you in whatever stage you are in at this moment in time.
My mission as a coach is to be present, listen attentively and help you find your way to bring about the change you want to create in your life. During our work together I offer a safe place for you to express all the colors of your being. All of you is welcome; the dreams and hopes as well as the doubts and fears.
Together we work towards one goal; to find the unique expression of your individuality. We explore the ways in which you can manifest your heart’s deepest longing into a job that truly fulfills you, a relationship that has a solid foundation and a life that you can feel confident and comfortable to be yourself in. After all this is your life, no one else’s.
Co-Active Coaching Model
The Co-Active coaching method isn’t about “right” or “wrong”; it is about helping you find your way back to YOU and encouraging you to lead a life that is contributive and considerate whilst celebrating your individuality and truth.
This is accomplished with the help of the Co-active coaching model which is geared towards guiding you to:
- Clarify what is important for you and what motivates you as well as what leaves you feeling unmotivated, tired, depleted
- Connect you to your values and transform your fear of the unknown into new opportunities, building on your individual strengths
- Start being comfortable in your own skin and become more confident with your unique self
- Get tools to make the right decisions in your life
- Create a life that is fulfilling, full of joy and best of all, the product of your own making
