What is Coaching in Transition?

My practice Coaching in Transition was set up out of a deep believe that whenever we are facing chronic fatigue or pains and aches in our bodies which cannot be explained by medical tests, we are transitioning to a new version of ourselves. The fatigue and pains are signals that we are ready for a huge mental, emotional and sometimes spiritual growth spurt. It tells us we are ready to step into the next best version of ourselves. 

This process does not come without challenges and generally there are 3 phases we go through. First, we experience a lack of clarity and find ourselves in a phase of ‘not knowing’. We are not quite sure about ‘the new’ which is emerging and may resist letting go of ‘the old’. This is normal. No matter how much we desire the change in our life, it implies leaving something familiar behind. That can be painful and needs to be processed. 

Once we see our options to create a new future, we have arrived in our chrysalis phase. This phase is marked by insights into how and why you feel, think and act the way you do. We (re)-connect to our core qualities, capacities and wisdom that help us overcome challenges in our transition. 

Lastly, we step out of the chrysalis with full clarity. We feel strong and energetic, think in terms of possibilities and know exactly what to do next. We have evolved into the next best version of ourselves.

“It’s never too late to be what you might have been”

George Eliot

Transitioning to a new leadership model

Coaching in Transition focuses on female career go-getters. Why? Because I believe the world is in need of more women stepping into leadership roles. Women, especially working moms, have more than one job to tend to every day, no matter how much our beloved partners step up and help out. Women also still have to prove themselves more than men in their positions, creating stress and fatigue. And while every one knows women’s health issues are markedly different from those of men, they are not commonly accommodated in organisational policies. 

Coaching in Transition supports professional women in transitioning into their powerful self, which is truly their authentic self. The world should prepare itself for an increased doses of female and feminine leadership. Leadership which is compassionate, supportive and empowering. This is not just for women. I invite all men in leadership positions to explore feminine leadership qualities like being sensitive, cooperative, empathetic, humble and nurturing.        


“One of the criticisms I’ve faced over the years is that I’m not aggressive enough or assertive enough or maybe somehow, because I’m empathetic, it means I’m weak. I totally rebel against that. I refuse to believe that you cannot be both compassionate and strong.”

Jacinda Ardern (Prime Minister of New Zealand)
