Coaching in transition
What is Coaching in Transition?
My practice Coaching in Transition was set up out of a deep believe that when you are facing chronic fatigue or pains and aches in your body which cannot be explained by medical tests, you are transitioning to a new version of yourself. The fatigue and pains are signals that you are ready for a huge mental, emotional and sometimes spiritual growth spurt. It tells that you are ready to step into the next best version of yourself.
This process does not come without challenges and generally there are 3 phases you’ll go through. First, you experience a lack of clarity and find yourself in a phase of ‘not knowing’. You 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 you desire the change in our life, it implies leaving something familiar behind. That can be painful and needs to be processed.
Once you see your options to create a new future, you have arrived in your chrysalis phase. This phase is marked by insights into how and why you feel, think and act the way you do. You (re)-connect to our core qualities, capacities and wisdom that help you overcome challenges in your transition.
Lastly, you step out of the chrysalis with full clarity. You feel strong and energetic, think in terms of possibilities and know exactly what to do next. You have evolved into the next best version of yourself.

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 their true authentic self. The world needs an increased doses of female and feminine leadership. Leadership which is compassionate, supportive, empowering, 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)
