Allowing Difficult Topics In A Safe Way, For Better Wellbeing
I'm Alessandra Patti, founder, consultant, and professional trainer at FindYourWay Coaching.
When I first created this company, the goal was supporting people being more assertive in their communication style and placing the right boundaries in order to prevent stress. Since this idea was born in 2017, we have been currently working with multinational companies, universities and organizations across different industries on their mental wellbeing strategy and prevention plans, through the use of education.
Being a linguist by training, and also a former translator and communication manager, I have extensive experience in facilitating and working with teams across different languages (English, Italian, Spanish, French, German). I design most of the company educational programs with an innovative outlook, to allow my customers to talk about difficult topics in a safe way.
My Background & Mission
I was born in Palermo, Sicily, and I have observed the lack of healthy boundaries and the presence of taboo and fear in my own culture, but not only, also in the international workplace scene of other countries I have lived in. We need to talk about stress and mental health, and we need to work on the right communication skills to make that happen.
I have made my personal and professional mission to change that, by working at the intersection of communication and mental wellbeing.
I have a background in adults' education, linguistics and communication. After many years of working in corporate communication as trainings responsible too, I got extra training in the following disciplines, so that I could start implementing the impact I wished:
Jungian Psychology, Energy Psychology, nervous system mental health and holistic wellbeing.
Mental Health First Aid, of which I became trainer and official partner for Switzerland.
Assertive and effective communication best practices at work.
Being born in a family of teachers, artists and scientists, I don't see the world in categories of science versus humanities. I believe in research and in being practical.
I base my work on my favorite two pillars: prevention through education. The coaching and trainings offered to organizations are evidence-based and most of them represent the perfect intersection between communication upskilling and mental wellbeing coaching. They address all levels of the organization. Book A Chat With Me To Know More.
The research behind FindYourWay is based on the benefits of assertiveness skills for mental health, holistic health, and research on communication skills.
I'm a facilitator, active researcher, community builder on the power of authentic communication, and I'm also the co-author of Amazon best-seller in Self-Help, "Activate Your Life."
A bit more about me: I have a great passion for reading, writing, learning, dancing and cooking. I learn languages as a hobby and I enjoy travelling and organizing events.
