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 sessions in 2 to 3 months: x. €1056 / y. €528*
“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. Let’s have a chat about your needs.

clarity pool

1-time 60 min session: x. €160 / y. €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.

Go ahead and book your session here. I will be in touch be email to make preparations together.

life fork

6 sessions in 3 to 5 months: x. €916 / y. €408
“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.

You can book a discovery call here.

get my website online

5  sessions in 2 months: : x. €700 / y. €350* or 10 sessions in 5 months: x. €1300 / y. €650*
“I’m working on my website and I need help getting it done.”

Perhaps you have a service or product to sell, you’re finally ready to share your art with the world, or you want to put your self and story online for others to connect to. Yet it hasn’t happened yet and it all feels very daunting. Here’s where my coaching comes in. I provide space, encouragement, accountability and mentoring to get through the challenges in the way of getting your website online. I can help you decide whether you want to go for the diy approach, and if so what platform is best suited for your needs. I can nudge you towards tools and knowledge that can help you keep moving steadily forward rather than feeling overwhelmed. And as your insecurities and blocks surface along this process (and they tend to), we will gently move through them using tools based on neuroscience and centred in the body, giving your project the support and success it deserves. Book a discovery call to see if this might work for you.

telling my story

1 week to few months process
“I have a story to tell but it’s currently a little too intangible for others to connect to.”

Is this story is an important part of the work you feel compelled to do? Perhaps you want to share how you found yourself doing this work, or present the work that you do in a way that does it justice.

In these sessions we explore your stories together, going deep to find their essence and a clear way (or ways) of communicating this. These sessions help you to connect to what feels authentic and compelling about your work, in a way that helps you communicate this to others in conversations, in recorded videos, online through your website, emails or social media.
This work can be up to 3 sessions in preparation for a video recording or a longer process over a few months to work on multiple themes.

Let’s discuss your needs over a no-obligations call.

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. For this reason, pricing comes in two tiers. 

x tier is for people with medium to high incomes generally based in the global north. 20% of revenue from this tier creates a scholarship fund for those not able to afford even tier y.

y tier is for people with low incomes more generally based in the global south or those with lack of support or in a low paying situation based anywhere. Please use whichever tier best works for your situation.

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:

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.

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.

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 learning to facilitate Systemic Constellations and learning different layers of the self as part of my ongoing professional development. You can see a list of trainings on my network and trainings page.

I have been creating websites with teams and on my own for over 15 years, have worked in design studios, with web departments, did a lot of copywriting for clients and used different CMSs to manage online content. I have also been building my own sites on wordpress for the past 10 years or so.

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.

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.

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.

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.
