ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Margarita Steinberg
I am a Leadership Coach with a specialism in Psychosynthesis psychology. I am the founder of ByHeart Coaching, and this blog grows out of my coaching work. I am also a qualified and experienced teacher, and draw on training in counselling skills. I integrate the fields of teaching, coaching and psychology (counselling), as they each bring a vital perspective on learning, transforming and becoming.
I work with individuals and couples, as private clients; I also work with organisations through running leadership coaching programmes and group workshops.
Speaking playfully and poetically, I am
* Peace Pitchfork
I reach deep within to find peace and resonate it out from there. Acceptance, being received, can be life-changing. Where within you is deep peace?
* Intrepid explorer of the inner landscape
...of my own personal landscape, other people's personal landscapes, and our shared collective inner landscapes. The world we live in is as much inside as outside.
* Whirling Tangera
Dancing with people, dancing with life: this is, for me, a metaphor for respectful and delightful, both light and deep, engagement with living, moment-to-moment, one step at a time.
* Words Lover
As the raiment of our dreams, words can lead to the soul. I look to the wellspring of words to reach the wellspring of our spirit.
I am all these things, and more.
I am defined by none of these things. I am more.
