Create the life you truly desire
Is a nagging issue spoiling your happiness?
- Feel worn out and craving relief
- Sense a rift in your relationship with your spouse
- Feel a distance with your adult child
- Struggle with loss or transition
- Feel overwhelmed taking care of an elderly family member
Life seems to speed up, and you don’t want to live with regrets.
It’s time to create change.
Let’s find time for yourself, live in harmony, and put the sparkle back into your relationship.
Commit to Yourself
Don’t waste your time waiting and hoping for change to happen. Work for it, instead. Make a little change today and enjoy results for the rest of your life.
I help you to:
- Find your true self and create the life you aspire
- Reclaim your personal freedom and stop feeling controlled
- Choose and pursue your goals in line with your values
- Boost your confidence – let go of self-doubt and believe in yourself
- Nurture your love and enhance relationships
“Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you need help, and brave enough to ask for it.” ~ Mark Amend
How does mentoring work?
Together, we define goals and implement twists to steer you toward the life you desire. You get support and sparring from me all the way through.
Assessment & Discovery
We start with detective work. I help you assess your current situation so you get clarity on what you want to achieve:
- Define the challenge and areas for potential growth
- Explore the discrepancy between your desired vs. actual life
- Establish the inconsistency between your assumptions vs. your behaviour
- Discuss alternatives, possible solutions and your expectations
Definition of your challenge to make sure you work intentionally and move in the right direction.
Let’s say your spouse took an early retirement and stays home for the first time in your 20 years together. You feel overwhelmed and freedom deprived. Together, we adjust your expectations; and set up a new daily routine for you both.
Or have you lost a loved one and can’t see yourself through? I help you grieve without suffering. Because you don’t have to suffer unless you choose to.
No matter how overwhelmed you feel, I help you get to the roots of your issues.
Learning & Implementing
Time for small twists and adjustments.
I help you understand your current situation:
- See your life from another perspective
- Get insight in what you are missing
- Anticipate what change can do for you
- Choose specific steps to ignite a process of change
- Implement what you learn and get results
- Sprouts of new skills
- Continuous sparring and support
- Answers to your questions and feedback to your actions
- Empathy and compassion
- A gentle nudge or a pat on the back, if needed
- Tools, exercises and worksheets when necessary
Consolidate & Maintain
Let’s make sure that changes stick.
For instance, you might be learning active listening, making requests or managing your inner critic. Now and then you slide back to your old communication style. That’s as normal as loving your old, comfy clothes.
I help you make sure new connections in your brain are solid so you’re taking firm steps on your new path.
At the end of each process, I help you:
- Acknowledge and celebrate your achievements
- Support you in using new skills to maintain the result
- Refresh the lessons you learned
- New skills and the change in your life you desire
- A gratifying feeling of pride for overcoming obstacles and personal limitations
- Flourishing self-confidence and stronger self-esteem
- Sparkling relationships
Why I Would Love to Work with You
I was not always a happy woman.
Growing up with a self-absorbed mother, I had to learn everything from the basics: How to be self-compassionate and say no. How to build up self-esteem and set boundaries. How to be a good mum and wife. How to love myself and other people. Give and take. And to forgive.
Fortunately, I had good teachers and mentors along the way who helped me leave pain behind, grow and enjoy my life.
Life is too short for pain, loneliness and despair. I’d love to help you find your path, and to live the life you desire and deserve. A difficult journey becomes easier when you have the right support.
