Coaching and Personal Development


Maybe your life is fundamentally fine but you might want to improve one or two areas by exploring and learning some new skills or tools, different attitudes and ways of being, like communication skills, parenting, how to overcome stress, develop your self-awareness, become calmer. Then perhaps coaching or personal development is what you are looking for.
I have experience as a coach and trainer and can help you, develop in a variety of areas. I believe that at the heart of personal or self-development is self knowledge. I think that for a healthy and happy life, it is necessary to be aware of what happens within your body, soul and mind.
Self-awareness has been an important element in many spiritual streams since ancient times. For example, it is central to the practice of Buddhism and was present in Ancient Greece as depicted in the inscription, “Know thyself”, at the entrance to the Temple of Apollo in Delphi.
Here is a list and brief description of the areas I can help you develop.
