A personal mentor

When women experience difficulties in life we often blame ourselves and start a negative self-talk. We beat ourselves up and get further away from the life we dream of.

My passion is bringing self-acceptance, self-appreciation, gratitude and self-love back to my clients’ life. Teaching, that self-care is an attitude not an occasional day at the spa. By adopting this attitude and applying it to their life they start to create a fuller, happier and more inspired way of living. Average days become better as they learn how to deal with stressful situations bringing joy more often and focusing on what they already have and want. They learn that they are complete, safe and whole.

No single approach is the right one for every individual and so I have been trained in a range of modalities including trainings with Tony Robbins, Cloe Madanes, Mark and Magali Peysha and more. I’m always in the process of learning new techniques; right now it is Emotional Freedom Technique. To that comes my intuition, life experience, hundreds of books I read, seminars I attended and my never-ending desire to teach women love themselves. Because if they do, every single one of us win and the world becomes a more loveable place.

My Life Journey

I have never thought of becoming a life coach until 2015. To understand what changed I need to look back a bit…

In 2002 we decided to move to Canada from Hungary. We craved a better life for our two daughters, my husband and myself.

We were establishing our new life:  we learned English, found jobs and raised our kids.

Fast forward to 2013. This year my dad became sick, diagnosed with cancer and he passed away 7 months later. His sickness brought up many hidden fears in our family.

I am an only child.  I was told one night that my dad didn’t want to get well because his grandkids were taken away and he can’t see them anymore. This hit me very hard.  I knew intellectually that it is not true but emotionally I believed that I betrayed my parents.

A few weeks after his funeral I found a lump in my left breast and soon I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The world collapsed. I was 42 and wanted to live.

I don’t know where did the strength come from but I very quickly decided that something good has to come out of my diagnosis. I refused to call it cancer, I called it my condition. I didn’t know anything about how we create our reality with our thinking but I felt from the very first moment that this is exactly the product of my thinking, the guilt I felt leaving my parents behind. I wanted to punish myself subconsciously. The illness was what I manifested with my thoughts.

It was also deliberating. If created my reality then I can change it too! I started to listen to lectures by Louise Hay and Wayne Dyer. I was scared of my own thoughts and had to occupy my mind. I discovered that I could help myself!

My physical healing happened faster than the emotional. I was so excited about personal development that I talked about it all the time!

Before my illness I was an office manager and loved it. After I recovered and went back to the office I couldn’t find joy in work anymore.

One day I was watching a video of Tony Robbins and his work fascinated me! He has coach trainings and I started to study.  Being a life coach is a great way to teach people about the endless possibilities personal improvement can offer!

2016 came and I started the year with sending my resignation letter to my boss. I was scared but my heart’s desire was bigger than the fear of the unknown.

In May I had my certificate and started the coaching business.

I work with women who give selflessly to others and forgot about themselves. They don’t appreciate what they do and harshly criticize themselves.

Self-love and self-care is part of my coaching. I teach my clients that everything starts within. Small changes lead to bigger ones.  What they think now shapes their life. They have power: they just need to learn how to use it!

Being a life coach is an endless learning process. I always look for ways to improve. Seeing my clients’ happiness and achievements is the best feeling! I am grateful to be with them on their journey.

I needed to go through cancer to learn that I am responsible for my own life. I want my clients learn this without going through life threatening illnesses. Change now. It’s easier than fighting for your survival.

I want to help whoever is ready and I am sure then our paths will cross one day.

All is well.
