Who am I and why coaching?
I really like teaching and coaching. I come from a family of teachers and consultants, and I think that a good coach, teacher and consultant needs to walk her/his talk, and believe in the potential of the client even when the clients does not even believe it! I practice self-assertiveness and authenticity every day, by speaking up my mind and giving honesty the place number one in my life and my work. Now I want to teach you how to do that.
Coaching is a great way to do that. Because it is basically a talk with the right questions and a plan with an outlook for the future. Do you still don't know what coaching is or want to know the difference between it and psychotherapy. Have a look at this video.
About me and about coaching now!
I was born in Palermo, Sicily. The southern Italian culture is extremely collective. The group comes before the individual. So, putting your desires and wishes aside to please others first is considered normal. I am not saying we should behave in a selfish way, but if we put ourselves constantly aside, we can become truly unhappy. To solve that, we should place certain boundaries, know ourselves very well and operate clear communication. This is called personal development, and it can be extremely hard to do on our own, this is why it is great to have an accountability partner that has your back.
I am an accredited and certified coach, university lecturer and mental health first aid instructor. I base my work on extensive research on the benefits of assertiveness for mental health.
