My Coaching Story: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

by | May 22, 2018

You know those commercials where a pretty lady with perfect hair and diamond white teeth smiles at you and tells you that everything is going to be okay? Well, that’s not me.

My story is far from a fairytale. When I decided to become a life coach, it took me 2 years to get over myself and simply start my business.

The Good

Since I was a little girl, I’ve always known that my dream job would somehow be related to helping others. All of my friends would come to me and ask me to give them advice on this and that. For a long time, I didn’t realize that helping others figure things out was a gift of mine.

One day, a friend of mine said: “I would pay you just to listen to you talk!” That stunned me. At first, I thought that he was joking. But then, another friend told me I was really good at this, and then another one, and another one… I had actually been coaching my friends throughout my teenage—and especially throughout my adult—years. I just wasn’t aware of it.

So I starting digging. I looked for occupations that would match my drive to help people simplify their lives. And then, I discovered coaching.

As any craft, coaching has its knowledge and tools that any coach must know before they start to practice their profession. So I started searching for training programs, found the right courses to take, held multiple exams, and finally got certified from four different institutions in the US and the UK as a Life Coach and Relationship Coach.

For me, being a coach is definitely a dream come true. Having the opportunity to listen to people’s’ deepest dreams and fears, is a life-changing experience for me. I like your raw souls, your beautiful stories. And I want to help you from the bottom of my heart. I truly do.

The Bad

When I was starting my coaching practice, I couldn’t get the courage up to even launch my website for a year! I was too scared, even though I had the certificates and skill set to launch with.

My husband tried to support me, but I wasn’t ready to dive in. I made excuses just to postpone the launch. So I decided to start digging deeper. I looked into myself and fought with my demons, my darkest and deepest fears. And then came the ugly part.

The Ugly

Going through therapy and coaching, I had to relive my childhood traumas. I had to feel like the little vulnerable girl that I used to be many, many years ago. I had to cry. I had to scream and shiver. I had to face my deepest fears. I had to do it all. And I’d do it all over again.

My life is far from perfect. And behind these beautiful websites and fancy clothes, there are real people. I am just a woman who managed to get her life together. And I want to help you do the same.

I feel vulnerable right now and it’s beautiful. Every time I choose to show my true, raw self to the world, I realize there’s nothing to be afraid of.

So what are you afraid of?

Make the first step.

Talk to me. I’m here for you. And I’m not going anywhere, as long as you need me.
