your magic is needed here

My sense is that we have entered what has been called ‘the space between stories’*. A transitional space where we can see that the status quo does not serve the vast majority of beings on earth. A space where the familiar is crumbling before our eyes, a time when we struggle to understand what’s going on or where we’re going.

I wholeheartedly believe that we can only weave a better story together, that each of us has their own particular and special piece to add to the tapestry.  Most of our leaders are failing us miserably and, more than ever, each of us must step up to the challenge of embracing our leader within. We must find ways of allowing and supporting the magic in each of us to emerge and contribute to something better.

Whatever this work looks like for you, coaching is my way of supporting you to flourish and to reach the potential you can feel but not yet grasp. This work touches your closest circles as well as your outward facing work, different sides of the same thing.

What can coaching help you with?

Here are some of my main offerings:

online identity coaching

8-pack: €528 – 2 to 3 month process
“I need my online identity to reflect who I really am in a way that helps me succeed”

Coaching and communications mentoring where we connect to and clarify your needs around your online identity. Together we develop a map of what needs to be done and move through it. I support you through being your accountability coach as well as coaching and mentoring you through my own communications, writing and marketing experience. This works both if you want to create an online identity from scratch (e.g. a new website) as well as for updating existing resources to suit current aims. Especially good if you are going the do-it-yourself route but also helpful to maximise effectiveness and clarity when engaging service providers.

navigating life curiously

5-pack: €350 or 10-pack: €650 – 3 to 8 month process

This is for you if:
You need support transforming a habit that no longer serves you.
You are looking for support in achieving a particular goal.
You feel stuck in an area of your life and need help clarifying the situation and support while taking concrete steps in moving through it.

clarity pool

1-time 60 min session – 80
A chance to reflect on one issue with serenity and clarity.

This is a 1-hour session focused on one particular issue that you identify beforehand as something you are seeking clarity about. Together we will create a calm space that helps us get to the essence of the issue and make it possible for you to see the situation clearly and know what your next steps are.
This can also be a space to clarify what kind of coaching / mentorship you require and get a feel for things before you commit to a longer process. In case you decide to go for a longer commitment, this session can be counted as the first within that.

life fork

6-pack: €408 – 3 to 5 month process
“I’m going through deep change and I’m at crossroads in my life. I have a sense of where things are heading but I’m not ready to let go into this and feel a lot of confusion and resistance.”

Coaching that can help you clarify where you are at the moment, what your choices are and what values help you to navigate this territory. Based on these values we will look at how best to move to action supported with tools and methods that increase your well being and boost your effectiveness while navigating this life fork.

A note about pricing: Born and raised on the Mediterranean island of Malta, I am very aware of the huge differences in incomes and pricing in different parts of the world. I am open to sliding scale rates that extend the lower and higher markers of my rates to better reflect your current personal situation. If you feel called to work with me, do get in touch.

What kind of coaching can you expect?

Warmly-hosted

Your full and weirdest self is hosted and welcomed in these coaching sessions. Together we will take the time to land, check-in and create a space that encourages you to embrace all your emotions, thoughts and parts so that we can work towards receiving the gifts that each of these presents to us.

Neuroscience-based

The science behind how the distributed brain (the nervous system running throughout our bodies) functions provides coaching with context and evidence when navigating the paths of change. We make use of what science has so far proven as a solid framework and secure anchor that makes our work together easier and more effective.

Embodied

Neuroscience clearly shows us the importance of including the body as part of any path towards change. Coaching sessions will help you to increase your awareness of the information your body constantly gives you (interoception), a powerful tool that we tend to ignore. Together we will also create embodiment practices that help you leverage your body’s help for making lasting change.

Systemic

Although coaching is focused on the self, acknowledging that we are interconnected to our environment and to each other is an important dimension of any change process. I use systems theory and lean into systemic constellations work to tap into information inherent to the systems we move inside of.

Some questions I'm often asked:

In my experience coaching and therapy are extremely complementary. As a rule of thumb, coaching is anchored firmly in the present and looking towards the future rather than exploring the past. Realisations about the past might come up during coaching sessions, more as ways of understanding our current situation and tracking our progress than for the sake of resolving the past (although that sometimes does also automatically happen).

Coaching is also action-oriented and will usually include a goal or task between one session and another as a way of creating accountability and support for your own progress. When compared to therapy, there tends to be more time between coaching sessions (2-4 weeks) and you can usually observe clear world-facing results within a few sessions. Coaching works more frequently in bursts with clear beginnings and endings rather than the ongoing steady weekly/bi-weekly rhythm of therapy.

The time interval between sessions depends on what you are trying to achieve and your life situation. I find a two or three week interval to be ideal in giving clients enough space for action and reflection however there are times when weekly or monthly sessions are more apt. You can choose to pace your sessions to best support you. As for number of sessions, I suggest that clients commit to five sessions to begin with as this gives us enough space to create a solid container for change. Past clients can choose to do one-off sessions after this initial phase.

Most of my sessions currently happen online, mostly for logistical reasons. I usually use Zoom and would send you a link after you book your chat or session. Sound only or phone sessions are also available.

It’s important to start this by saying that I am not a psychotherapist and I do not offer therapy. My work is however trauma-informed so that I can work with people who have experienced trauma (that’s most of us really) in ways that do not trigger or make the trauma worse.

I was actually hired to be a coach before I even knew what coaching exactly entailed. It was framed as consulting, which I was experienced at, but I quickly realised that this was something else. Knowing that I ended up on this project because of natural aptitudes but feeling completely out of my depth led me to search for tools that could help me do this job better. I have now been on this journey for the last four years. I have attended an ICF certified Neuroscience of Change training course for coaches, do ongoing work with my own coach, work on developing my core coaching competences and am currently studying about Systemic Constellations and different layers of the self as part of my ongoing professional development. You can see a list of trainings on my about page.

It’s important to have realistic goals here. For example, a lifelong pattern of behaviour might be shifted in a significant way in a handful of sessions but lasting change will only happen with repetition since we create alternative default neural pathways through lots and lots of practice. Knowledge of neuroscience and working through the body ensure that we have the best available tools to make change as effective and joyful as possible.

Please book a free exploratory chat where you can talk about your current situation and what you are looking for from coaching. I will talk a little bit about my background and approach and we figure out if working together sounds like a good idea. If it does, and we commit to working together, I will send you a short questionnaire to fill before our first session. This helps me better understand what you need and how you would like to be coached. Coaching sessions are generally 1 hour long.
