ABOUT ME: YOUR COACH
I'm definitely a passionate person, and I listen to people stories with passion, empathy and appreciation. But I never hesitate to poke my clients if my intuition tells me so! I want to unlock people's brain and make them see that they can speak up their mind. The question is always: how you do it, not what you say!
Born in Palermo, Sicily, I have been raised with the "culture of sacrifice" and the respect for authority, which means I don't come first, but other people's needs do. And never question authority. But, even as a child, I was always opinionated, and I thought "It should not be like that! I want to be able to express myself and figure out my VALUES!"
I believe in supporting others no matter what, but I need to be well myself in order to do that! And I need to choose my battles and my boundaries.
When I understood that, I achieved many things in my professional and personal path:
- A Master Degree in Translation and Interpreting in Spain, where I lived 4 years
- A Diploma in Digital Marketing and Communication, when I moved to Switzerland, where I was a Marketing and Communication Manager for 7 years for an international company.
- I successfully completed a year psychology school and 2 years coaching school, becoming accredited and specializing in assertive communication.
- I'm a certified mental health trainer (German and English language) and I became a freelance professional in 2018.
I love studying and also teaching... this is why I am on my way to become a Swiss Federal Trainer.
I'm also the co-author of Amazon best-seller in Self-Help, "Activate Your Life" - By subscribing to my newsletter, you can get the chapter for free.
My passions beside coaching: books, salsa dancing, cooking, wine, hats, pilates, and foreign languages. I'd like currently to learn Croatian!
Some people ask me: "What do languages have to do with all this? You were a translator and now a coach! What is what?"- I answer "Let's all stay open minded here! How do you think I can coach my clients already in 5 languages?"
