“I realised that I could have both a meaningful career and time for my family“
Hi! My name is Elena and I met Claudia at a time of great change in my life. I had just moved from Italy to Brussels with my whole family and had just had a second beautiful baby girl. When I started my journey with her, I was very worried about my future and if I thought about my career, I saw everything in black. Claudia helped me with patience and determination to understand who I was as a woman, as a mother and as a professional. She helped me to clarify my values, my skills and my priorities. With her I realised that I could have both a meaningful career and time for my family. With the career leadership coaching programme, we developed all the tools to enable me to have the job I wanted.
I now work as a senior UX designer at an international web agency. It’s a great job, but part-time and remote, which allows me to play with my girls on my days off.
I have to thank Claudia because her programme did not miss any aspect of my life. Despite the fact that I came to her for a strictly professional aspect, her approach was all-round.
“Nothing to lose here – only the uncertainty, demotivation and frustration“
I was stuck at a point, where I did not see any perspective for development and growth, where I felt demotivated and burnt out in my long feared career. Before working with Claudia, I tried to work on some different projects to rebuild my interest and motivation, to change my job, to self help and pull myself out of this situation on my own.
My interaction with Claudia completely changed my perception on the issues I was experiencing. It helped me refocus, turn inwards, rediscover my desires and motivation, and helped me make the steps towards my dream job. Claudia lead me to rediscovering my values, reconfirming my strengths, to clarify my vision for the future, and to put a strong step-by-step plan towards execution. If you have any doubt about the future of your career or already feeling unhappy with your current professional life and feel that you need a change, but don’t know where and when to start, or if you want the change but the fear is preventing you from doing the step – speak up, take the burden off your shoulders and trust Claudia to open a new door or a whole new world in front of you. Nothing to lose here – only the uncertainty, demotivation and frustration. Claudia has this incredible ability to make even the most complicated issue/topic/idea look simple, understandable and possible. This is still amazing me most:)
“I have adopted a new way of being and feel more balanced and accomplished in what I do.”
With Claudia I discovered a completely new world. I am convinced that I wouldn’t have managed to make the progress I have made without having her on my side. She is an exceptional listener, very empathetic and able to figure out what is going on well and quickly. She guides you in her genuine and direct way! I wanted to combine work-life balance together with a fulfilling profession and was trapped into fear of failure and lack of self confidence. I learned and adopted many self-care habits such as meditations, positive affirmations, expressing gratitude and manage to stop consciously when I get into my old subconscious patterns. I feel happier and more confident. I have adopted a new way of being and feel more balanced and accomplished in what I do. In addition, I now know I can achieve even more and enjoy every step on that path!
“I learned how to listen to myself”
I was looking for a coach with whom I could talk of all my career issues and struggles, without feeling that on the other side there was just a polite professional, listening to me because she had to. This was something I could immediately identify in Claudia. I learned how to listen to myself, not just to my rational brain, but also to my other, less rational levels of conscience. Creating the space in my “interior life” in order to be able to make space for other experiences and transformations in my “exterior life”. Until I did not sign my new contract in my new role, I did not believe it would have been possible, but through the work with her, now I know and I have the proof.
” I enjoyed the honest conversations, her dedication to have me get on and the exercises she regularly gave me.”
I was not so sure how to proceed with my work activities, and therefore approached Claudia and I got the clarity I was looking for as well as an understanding of the resistances I had. I enjoyed the honest conversations, her dedication to have me get on and the exercises she regularly gave me. Claudia is very good at addressing resistance and she really cares about people.
“CLAUDIA HAS HELPED ME TO UNDERSTAND VERY QUICKLY THAT MY BELIEFS WERE THE BARRIER THAT HAD KEPT ME SMALL. CLAUDIA GAVE ME THE CONFIDENCE TO FINALLY START ASKING FOR MORE.”
I felt stuck in my career and started being exhausted with juggling everyday life as a full-time working mom. At the same time I was turning in circles trying to initiate change in my life. I feared that I would end up with doing something, even worse and literally saw myself working harder, longer and with less benefits – so why change? I had created myself a nice mantra of, “Just be happy & thankful for what you have.” Trying to keep me in the situation but inside I knew I was doing harm to myself and I had to act and find help. Claudia‘s approach is really from the inside out. With her insights she has helped me to understand very quickly that my beliefs were the barrier that had kept me small. Claudia gave me the confidence to finally start asking for more and she has filled my toolbox with some wonderful techniques that are really powerful to navigate the journey. A lot of positive things have fallen in place for me with an easiness that I did not dare to imagine. Many aspects in my life have become light and more playful for me and this truly is changing my life in a very positive direction. Thank you Claudia! I would suggest to people to trust your inner voices that are telling you that you deserve more and get support to work on your belief system. Most likely this will be the best investment for yourself that you have done in years. RENATE M. SALES MANAGER
“Having worked with Claudia was incredible beneficial for me and my career.”
Having worked with Claudia was incredible beneficial for me and my career. Her commitment to me as her client and her general work attitude were and still are outstanding. The clarity and structure she brought into each coaching session are phenomenal and gave me the orientation and trust that I needed. Before I worked with Claudia, I already worked with two other coaches with whom I could not really advance and become clear on what I wanted to do with my career. If people want to change their career then Claudia is the right one as she is honest (no bullshitting) and identifies the pain points to make change possible. Claudia knows what she is talking about. She offers her personal experiences as well as so many other resources. She is a great leader and mentor and I feel honored that I had and still have the opportunity to work with her.
“I felt immediately connected with Claudia, who understood my needs.”
I had recently graduated from an executive MBA. After almost 4 years on leave / staying at home mom, I felt the need of looking for opportunities to get back in the professional market. I was emotionally very drained and confused. I felt immediately connected with Claudia, who understood my needs. Her personality and structured way of working, especially the transformation from inside-out truly convinced me to engage in a program. I learned about my values, mission and my purpose. I also enjoyed being more aware of my talents – and the focus and feedback session we have in each session. Claudia has many talents but the one I found outstanding is her empathy in guiding me through the coaching program without ever losing the focus. Now I’m taking control of my needs and aligning them to my values. I also recognized my strengths and skills to move towards a career decision that fulfils me and my purpose.
“Claudia really helped me to change my perspective and overcoming my cultural restraints.”
I wanted to change my job position and increase my financial capabilities, and I knew that my historical and cultural background were preventing me to exit my comfort zone without a parachute. I’m far more conscious of my capabilities, more determined and I increased my communications capabilities at an effective level to ask for what I want, not always hiding behind myself. Claudia really helped me to change my perspective and overcoming my cultural restraints. I learned how to get out of my comfort zone, to the point that I am also able to jump from a 4m high trampoline into a pool. I would never have been able to do that prior to working with Claudia. Just give her a try, she will not disappoint your expectations!
“I recommend the Coaching Program to anyone who needs a mirror that puts one’s emotions into words…”
The Coaching Program with Claudia helped me realize what is most important to me in my professional life as well as encouraged me to be myself and seek fulfillment actively. I recommend the Coaching Program to anyone who needs a mirror that puts one’s emotions into words and/or a trigger to reflect and guide oneself in the chosen direction.
“I was able to become aware of which were the limits I was imposing myself, of which patterns and social rules I was following in order to block me from enjoying a satisfactory work-life.”
Claudia has shed light on a work-life situation of mine where I was totally in the dark. She has been a wonderful coach that with softness and steadiness has guided me seeing clearly through the situation. Through Claudia’s help, I was able to become aware of which were the limits I was imposing myself, of which patterns and social rules I was following in order to block me from enjoying a satisfactory work-life.
