I have developed my training and methodology for over twenty years.
I currently offer a very effective and engaging self-development service that combines the practicality and goal-oriented nature of coaching together with the emotional and physiological focus of counseling fusing them together within the framework of the natural cycles (feminine and/or lunar).
Individual video call sessions
Using the video call mode via computer or smartphone, you can connect from wherever you want over your internet connection.
In each session you are the protagonist. That’s your time. We can approach the goal you choose or explore your difficulty in defining it: I will listen to what you say and don’t say as well as help you overcome the obstacles you are facing and discover what motivates you.
Within the scope of your personal power, the only limits are the ones you set for yourself.
Three obstacles to overcome to get closer to your goals
With every action we take, we achieve results and create habits. If you want to achieve a different goal, you need to change your actions and the root thoughts that guide them.
This sounds easy and you have undoubtedly already done this in your life. However, if the goal is particularly challenging, we may be unable to achieve the desired results, despite our best efforts. In this case, it is of great help to have somebody helping us to get rid of what is keeping us stuck.
Together we can work on your mental and emotional obstacles:
- Lack of self-awareness
On my Paths of Change programs you will learn to recognise the energies of the natural cycles (feminine and/or lunar), your character profile and your core motivations.
You will realise how normal and predictable changes in your energy profile are during the four phases of these natural cycles and how practical it is to use the potential of each phase in your favour turning these cyclical fluctuations from being “enemies” into “great allies”.
- Lack of time
Time cannot be stored, turned back or created. That’s a fact.
However, when you learn to better manage your resources and accept that different energies are available to you in the four stages of the feminine or lunar cycle, it becomes easier to optimise the time that life gives us.
- Self-limiting thoughts
What we think of ourselves and of others is just a point of view that often limits us. By exploring new points of view we can give ourselves more opportunities.
The overall amount of energy available to us is also limited. As such, it is important to choose the point of view that allows us to make the most of it.
The approaches I offer you to mobilise your resources and face any challenge
The approaches I use today in our sessions are from the personal toolbox that I have created and used to navigate life at my best as a woman and as a professional since my time in banking and even more today as a facilitator of change.
-> Coaching: Rational brain (reasoning, conversations and limiting thoughts)
Starting from the words you say to yourself or to others, we practice a form of language aimed at realising actions to achieve your personal and professional goals.
With this focus, we work mainly at the verbal level, rather than the emotional and physiological ones. You define the activities that you commit to carrying out on your own after each session.
-> Counseling: Emotional brain (emotions, thoughts and feelings) + Somatic Experiencing®: Impulsive brain (fight, flight or paralysis reactions)
By observing how your body reacts as we approach the issues that are important to you, we explore:
– The emotions that overwhelm or frighten you and look for new ways of being with them and experiencing them to the fullest in your relationship to yourself and others.
– The impulses that move you and influence physical sensations, thoughts and emotions.
With this focus, we will work mainly at the level of the physiological sensations, rather than at the rational level. Words are used to explore the experience of the moment. The space between sessions will help you to internalize and integrate the work we do together. In addition, you may discover certain insights connected to our sessions and use them to take beneficial actions before our next session.
-> Gine Coaching®: Coaching and natural cycles
Gine Coaching® is a method, which I have tailor-made for women. This is a very effective and engaging self-development service that combines the practicality and goal-oriented nature of coaching together with the emotional and physiological focus of counseling, fusing them together within the framework of the natural cycles (feminine and lunar).
Can you tell which phase of the feminine or lunar cycle you are in without checking the calendar? Being aware of these natural cycles helps you to make sense of the changes in your emotions, physical feelings and thoughts throughout the month and to take action between sessions in ways that are consistent with the characteristics of four phases of the cycle. Below is a summary of these four phases:
- Menstruation / Black Moon (winter-wisdom): Getting in deep contact with what gives meaning to our lives makes this phase ideal for withdrawing to reflect, making plans and deciding where to direct our attention in the subsequent phases of rising energy.
- Pre-ovulation / First quarter Moon (spring-action): This phase is dominated by an increase in energy and a predisposition for getting things done, which is excellent for implementing decisions which have already been taken without acting impulsively. However, you might also experience storms of positive thoughts and seemingly brilliant ideas which will often later be revealed as being unsuitable and ill-thought-out.
- Ovulation / Full Moon (summer-creation): A greater openness to the world and readiness to interact with others enriches this stage, which is the most suitable for critical conversations and negotiating to take place in.
- Pre-menstruation / Last quarter Moon (autumn-awareness): A decrease in our energy, the reduced capacity for rational reasoning and the subsequent withdrawal of energies from the outside world is contrarily accompanied by an increase in our intuition and assertiveness which where marginal before and happen to make this phase ideal for creative and innovative thinking as well as for reviewing what you want to keep or let go of.
If you want an introduction to the different energies of the natural cycles, I suggest reading more on the website dedicated to the Gine Coaching® self-development service (www.ginecoaching.com).
-> The Enneagram of personalities and individual differences
Although each person has a unique approach to life, it can be useful to refer to guidelines that bring together common traits for the purpose of personal growth.
The Enneagram map, developed by Claudio Naranjo, proposes 9 personality types, divided into the three centres of intellect (head), action (gut) and feeling (heart), each of which is connected to a predominantly accepted or denied emotion, i.e. the intellect centre to fear, the action centre to anger and the feeling centre to sadness. Each of the nine traits has 3 different nuances depending on whether the person’s comfort zone is the personal zone, the couple-family zone or the social zone. We can use the principles of the Enneagram to support your evolution, connect you to your core motivation and overcome any self-limiting attitudes typical of your personality type.
As an introduction to this tool I suggest reading my essay “BioGestalt® Counseling and Ontological Coaching meet” and Helen Palmer’s book “The Enneagram“.
Practising conscious attention facilitates the process of change. Nurturing the gaps between thoughts improves self-regulation, builds resilience and creates the basis for strengthening motivation.
Although we share common traits of human nature, each of us is different. That is why your path of change will be as unique as you are, and will originate from a spark that lies within you that is prompting the need for transformation.
On the following Paths of Change programs, I offer you the combination of approaches and techniques that best helps you meet your challenges and reach your personal or professional goal(s):
- Take action
- Time for you
- Find your motivation
- Gine Coaching®: Synchronize with the natural cycles
- Personal growth
- Professional growth
- I don’t know what I want
These services take place as Individual sessions via video call:
All of them include a free first exploratory session and have two purchase options:
- Single session (60 min / €75)
- 4+1 Pack (4 sessions of 60 min + 1 Follow-up / €314)
For the change to be effective, you need to harmonise with your outlook on life 4 areas of your personality: thought and action, emotion and felt-sense, intention and instinctive impulse, motivation and choices.
Whichever goal you set for yourself, you can choose to access change through one of these 3 gateways: the words you say (to yourself or to others), the emotions you feel, and the instinctive impulses you struggle to control.
It is up to you to decide whether you prefer to explore only one or more of these and whether you wish to go through a particular door first or whether you want to go through all three at the same time. Whichever you choose, we will work together hand-in-hand and step-by-step so that you can gradually expand your awareness and activate the resources that serve your goals.
You may choose to start your transformation from a particular door just because you feel you like it, but along the way you discover that you prefer to go through another door that you have never explored before. This is normal; changing your mind is part of the process of transformation. At any given time, you are free to choose the depth you want to take your transformation process to, i.e. to the level of actions, of results or of your deepest motivations.
- To get extra support for your growth, join our online community
The energy of a group is very powerful and can be useful to sustain change, share it and find support.
During a path of change process with me, profound transformations occur that develop over time. Having people around you who know this process because they have been through it themselves is a great help to share successes and overcome difficulties.
I contribute to various groups where people who have started to live in tune with their core motivations can share ideas and experiences. It is very nice and useful to be able to grow together.
In the community section you can explore the online pages and join the ones you like best.
