Coaching for women working in science, technology, and EU government affairs who want to:
- Be a better leader and manager of others.
- Change life direction and/or get unstuck.
I help you manage the unpleasant thoughts, feelings and emotions that we all have when stepping outside of our comfort zone. Challenging yourself to improve or perform isn’t easy. I know I’ve spent a lifetime trying to improve myself and I’ve failed many times. At each failure, I took on a lesson and tried to apply that lesson to my life. But along the way I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety, of feeling not good enough and imposter syndrome. We normally try to manage our emotions by taking action, sometimes that action is helpful and sometimes that action is unhelpful. To overcome impostor syndrome I learnt more, but I also became paralysed by it, my feelings of anxiety about getting found out ensured I didn’t do a good enough job.
The biggest factor that will stop you achieving your goals is not managing the emotional impact of your challenges. We all need support when we decided to step up or make a life change. I help you achieve your goals by helping you manage the emotional impact of your challenges and teach you practical tools to improve your performance and fulfil your potential. I use my life experience and a research-backed protocol that delivers results. Acceptance and Commitment Training is a unique empirically based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment and behaviour change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility.
I coach in person in Brussels, Belgium and I coach clients across Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand using video conferencing.
