Want or Need a Do-Over?
Do want to start over?
Your relationship? Your career? Your life(style)?
Are you unfulfilled in your relationship?
Is your career killing your spark?
Are you not feeling home at home?
Are you desperate for more joy and fun in your life, for more time to just be?
My hunch is you’re craving a change. Something different. Something more.
But you don’t know what you want instead or what you want more of.
Maybe you already have an idea of what you want that change to look like, but you’re too afraid to try it out.
Maybe you’ve already decided that you don’t want to live like this any longer, but you’re holding on to the status quo, because that feels safer.
So you stay where you are.
In that relationship. In that job or career.
In that place that no longer inspires you or makes you feel alive.
Whatever or wherever that is.
You’re craving is drowned out by “What-If’s”.
Know that it’s only fear talking.
And fear tells you something.
Only you don’t listen to its real message.
So here’s the deal:
What if I tell you change is possible?
What if it’s never too late to start over?
What if I tell you you can always have a do-over.
A new beginning.
What if I tell you you deserve to have more joy, more fun.
To do what you want to do.
To be who you really are.
To feel more alive.
I can help you do exactly that:
To take a chance, make a choice and create that change you crave so much.
I’ve done an intense life coach training and I’m a Certified Martha Beck Life Coach who has started over quite a few times herself.
I know what it’s like to leave behind everything that’s familiar to you.
To jump into the unknown.
I know what it’s like when you’re world is collapsing around you.
I know how to deal with road bumps you didn’t anticipate when you got out and you don’t know what’s next.
Because I’ve been there myself, I can guide you when you’re stepping into a new career, a new home, a new life, a new you .
Toxic Relationships Coach
Are you dealing with a narcissist or a manipulator?
Are you in an emotionally abusive relationship?
I’ve been there, done that.
Helping people get out of these relationships is my “thing”.
I’m deeply familiar with what it’s like to walk on egg shells.
To feel worthless.
To be called crazy.
I help you find out whether the feeling of something being off is on target
— Hint: It usually is.
I help you get more informed about the what and the how of what you’re dealing with.
About the red flags and the symptoms.
About the tactics manipulators and narcissists use.
Hint — I use the term Dark Souls for these people.
Knowing what you’re dealing with leads to more support and more efficient decisions, choices and actions.
So I guide and support you through the whole process.
From dealing with your thoughts, emotions, actions and reaction to the actual practical stuff you can lose sight of when you’re in the midst of emotional turmoil.
My promise to you
Whatever situation you want to get out of and/or start over with, I can tell you life coaching is not an easy fix or a smooth process. It’s actually hard work.
And doing this work can be a bumpy ride.
But I promise you that when you do the work you’ll be better equipped to deal with life’s rough patches and difficult rides, whether they’re big or small.
I promise you’ll have a tool kit to fall back on when you feel stuck, lost or down and out.
The work is deep, intense and confronting, but you know what? It’ll be so worth the effort.
“No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again.”Buddha
Are you ready to take the reins of your life in your own hands?
Because no one else can and will do it for you.
Don’t worry. I’m here for you.
You can do this!
