How can I help you?
I have 42 years of experience in many fields in life, with some hard times and also joyful ones; I have crossed from one side to the other several times in my life, and I have acquired some wisdom from the contrast. I have learnt how to survive in the most difficult moments, and how not to get lost during the easiest ones.
Besides all those experiences, my travels around the globe and the many books and courses of different kinds I have come across with, have made me have a broad understanding of life and, most importantly, of myself. And I say most importantly because, first, all we are looking for is inside ourselves, and secondly, once you understand yourself you can better understand others.
I have developed my left –rational– side of the brain, that I have strongly trained thanks to my profession in the IT-computing and Project Management fields. In addition, due to the different experiences in my life (including some traumatic events), I have developed a special sensitivity and empathy.
All in all, I am sure I can help you to find out more about yourself in many aspects of life.
I LOVE …
I have learnt to love everything and everyone, even when sometimes they make it so difficult!!
Of course, I love to have fun and feel loved, but even the hardest moments I know they are part of my journey, so I have learnt to embrace them as well.
And I love to give to others what I have inside, to help them to feel better and to reach their goals. That makes me feel great as well! What you are giving to others, you are giving it to yourself.
How I came to become a Teacher/Mentor …
When I meet somebody, if they are receptive enough, I always focus on transmitting them my energy and my insights, sometimes during hours of relaxed and deep conversations. I have encouraged the laziest, and inspired the most curious.
Their gratitude and recognition have been more than worth it. That is one of the reasons I am here, my goal is to make a living doing what I love to do.
The skills I have learnt along the way …
I will first talk about the theory… I have attended courses and got certifications in Coaching, NLP, emotional intelligence, neuroscience, creativity, leadership, effective communication, successful public speaking, customer service, team and project management, business management… complemented with lots of books about psychology, the law of attraction, quantum physics and metaphysics, spiritual awakening, health and nutrition…
Among others, I am a certified Master Coach and NLP Practitioner.
And I have travelled to over 30 countries, opening my mind to new cultures and ways of understanding life.
Plus, my career and profession have served me as a training to extremely developing my logic skills.
My unique style
I like finding a relaxing environment for a chat, and having calm conversations. I like listening more than talking. I only open my mouth when I have something interesting/relevant to say, or to formulate a question that guides my interlocutor to a deeper talk. I like to be clear and concise, I am always very honest, sometimes too much… but that is me!
I am very patient and I can explain the same thing in different ways if necessary. And I love to use the sense of humour when the time is right.
Sometimes I find appropriate to summarise at the end of the talk, not to leave forgotten anything.
My "work" does not finish with the chat, usually the conversation keeps going around in my mind, and I may contact you afterwards with a new insight or a better explanation.
Clients have told me that …
They remember our chats with pleasure, and also the things we talked about.
Some people tell me they feel like we have known each other for a long time.
