Positively life-changing

"The guidance I've received from Margarita has been positively life-changing. After each session I enjoy with her, I end up with another glorious nugget of self-realisation that has a profound impact on my mental wellbeing and my day-to-day life.

I haven't felt this much at ease, self-confident and grounded in years."

"The guidance I've received from Margarita has been positively life-changing. After each session I enjoy with her, I end up with another glorious nugget of self-realisation that has a profound impact on my mental wellbeing and my day-to-day life.

Ahead of my first taste of psycho-synthesis with Margarita, I was experiencing a constant tightness in the head and chest, stress and burn-out. All of that has almost completely disappeared. I'm very confident it isn't just fleeting relief. That's because the depth of introspection she has navigated me through has astonishingly revealed some fundamental truths about my identity, behaviours, beliefs and desires. But, Margarita's magic doesn't end with that enlightening analysis.

She's enabled me to devise better ways of being. For example, we were able to pinpoint that I had a propensity to treat others with a degree of compassion I wasn't affording myself. Instead, I was continually punishing myself, which caused stress. Using role play, she helped me find a way for compassion to guide my Will (my principle desire/purpose) so I would treat myself in a more kind and rational manner rather than beating myself up when I did something 'wrong'.

My sessions with Margarita haven't been your typical talking therapies. Far from it. What also makes them unique and particularly effective is that she brings her own personality and life experiences to the fore to help me understand myself. This ranges from delving into etymology of language to dancing around the room performing basic tango. It's joyous!

I haven't felt this much at ease, self-confident and grounded in years.
Rather than cowering at the thought of taking on the future and its plethora of potential problems, I'm excited by the challenge of pursuing my Will and creating the future that is most *me*.

Needless to say, I urge anybody and everybody to take the step to psycho-synthesise with Margarita, no matter who you are and where you're at in your life. If you're confused, stuck, fearful about anything or just want to learn more about yourself, get in touch with her! It could significantly change your life, like it has mine."
When is the right time for you to get coaching?
Situations when coaching is most relevant:
if any of these ring true for you
I've been stuck for a while
Staying stuck is no longer an option for you, yet what you've tried so far hasn't helped
I don't know what to do
The suggestions you've received don't seem to match your situation
I've been going round in circles
You've done the pro's and con's analysis, you've found some online articles, but you haven't yet found a solution that works for you
I know what I need to do, but I just can't bring myself to do it
This is often caused by overlooking some intermediate steps that would connect up the dots for you
I've consulted friends and now need professional guidance
The resources around you are not enough to help with what you're attempting. This is the time when professional guidance can make the world of difference
I am stepping into something new
You are about to undertake something new, or you want to. There are many unknowns, too many to handle without proper guidance

When to choose coaching
Q: What's the difference beetween coaching and counselling?

A: It's a bit like choosing between visiting a doctor and hiring a sports/fitness coach.
Your priority is to heal
Doctor
Counselling and therapy are focused on reducing suffering, helping you get over traumatic experiences in the past etc.

With this in mind, therapists and counsellors tend to commit to work with you until things are better (whereas a coach will work with you towards a specific goal, which often puts a time limit on the collaboration).

If it's hard for you to 'keep your act together' just now, then chances are that counselling/therapy would be a good fit for you at this point.
You're in decent health, and keen to up your game
Sports coach
Coaching helps you with improving something in your life, taking it to the next level.

To put it another way, creating positive future outcomes is the primary concern of coaching, so resonances from the past are only explored where they are relevant to unleashing your potential.

Coaches also tend to work with clients for a defined period of time, so you can expect to sign up to work with a coach for six sessions or three months, rather than open-ended, as is common for therapy/counselling.

The core areas I help clients with are

  • developing your career
  • developing your leadership skills
  • strengthening your relationships
  • empowerment for women
  • health
Beyond those core themes, coaching can apply to a lot of scenarios and most likely could help with your specific situation. If your problem is not in the list above, please feel free to get in touch with me, so we can discuss what would be a great fit for you.
What's making you hesitate?
It's OKAY TO GET HELP - and THRIVE!

We've been taught we SHOULD know all the answers ourselves, and that receiving help is cheating.

Traditional schooling really drives this message home, and many experiences of adult life can reinforce the message.

>>> TIME TO GET PERSONAL <<<

The photograph in this section is a note that my son Kim wrote, reflecting at 19 on how he'd felt as a younger teenager.

He had seemed cocooned, defended against any attempt to help him. Luckily for my son, some help did reach him, and he found his way to flourishing.

Do you feel that asking for or accepting help would be cheating? That only if you succeed on your own would it truly count? Is "staying alone and not changing" keeping you away from success for the sake of staying safe?

If any of these feel familiar, you may be experiencing the effects of stress. If so, check out my blog post 'Use your stress' for first-line assistance →
