GET TO KNOW ME
I believe as people we all have a story. A story which either hinders us or liberates us. I wish to help people discover their story, their reason for their lack of self-love and to help them take authorship of their own lives. Happiness starts from within. A little darkness is needed to see the stars and when we embrace ourselves we liberate ourselves.
I grew up in a family with lots of love, but there was not much space for my own voice. The environment did not allow for individuality. I had no room to express myself or my "feelings". Not getting the attention I needed as a child, I started compensating, adapting.
I adapted into "Mister Nice Guy", a people pleaser that can’t say no. I would rather suffer from the consequences of not saying "NO" than ever letting someone down. This became my sub-conscious compensating mechanism.
Then I stumbled upon coaching and it turned my life around. It opened my eyes to the truth that I and only I am responsible for my life. Scary? Sure. No more blaming, no more denial, the time had come to let go of the story I told myself and start designing my own authentic story. It was a transformative experience that opened a floodgate of emotions, insights, reflections, and opportunities to me.
I have started to take responsibility for my life. Facing the fact that I was a product of my upbringing but I was also responsible for my actions and future. I had to let go of the blame and guilt. Instead, I saw it as a possibility to take ownership of my life and to shape it the way I want it to be. It surely isn't easy but it certainly is rewarding to the fullest.
Mindfulness was a huge game changer along the way. I practice it almost every moment of my life. Once you learn how to be present and aware of your emotions and actions it will affect not only yourself but also everyone around you.
Becoming a Coach made me open up to my own emotions. Emotions I had suppressed for many years but now realise were burdening me. This self-empowerment is the same gift I wish to give each and every person I coach and come into contact with.
When you face all the mis-beliefs you grew up with, you will realize that many of them are not serving you anymore. Once you face them, accept them and then let them go, life becomes so much more fulfilling.
I want to help people to find their authenticity. When I see people transform it is one of the most rewarding experiences ever. That is why I am on a mission to help others find their true selves.
Once you start our coaching journey, it will be hard to look into the mirror and not see your truer self that has hid underneath years of insecurities and negative beliefs. This is the point liberation begins.
We are the orchestrators of our own life. We can make choices in the present moment that shape our tomorrows so that our yesterday’s become more pleasant to look back on.
