“I wasn’t sure where a Life Coaching would take me, but the journey was the most beautiful of my life – the journey to my true self.
I learnt so much about myself. If I had to name the biggest change, it would be the awareness for myself – for my strengths, weaknesses, my values, my priorities, why some things are so easy for me and others challenge me a lot. I feel like I am being more aware in life now. I am aware of what situations, people, places do to me. I think Janina’s nature is made to be a coach. She always knew when to let me discover for myself, help me along the way or push me. She gave me a lot of different tools to explore the goals I had set. I felt very comfortable opening up to her and I certainly never felt judged in any way, the opposite was the case. Janina made me feel that I am enough and taught me many things I hadn’t appreciated before – like self-love and self-care.”
“The Life Coaching sessions were one of the best and most valuable experiences in my life. I felt very comfortable with Janina from the first session on. The coaching that was perfectly adjusted to me and my needs. Before the coaching I felt lost in my life and had no plans for the future. Through coaching I became much more determined and am no longer afraid to ask people for help. This has opened up many new possibilities. I hope I have now found a job that fits me perfectly. I have also become more content and true to myself.“
I was going through a period of introspection, albeit it subconsciously, and I wanted to find some more meaning in my daily routine. My main focus was finding a more enjoyable job, and one that utilized more of my individual talent. I went into it with an open mind and it became quite clear to me that there was more to the overall picture than just career change. While career was and is an enormous piece of the puzzle, there was a bigger opportunity to tackle other underlying issues. The introspection I’d been subconsciously approaching was about to be properly explored. What I got out of coaching was clarity of mind and direction. Being able to recognize that thoughts, and in particular negative thoughts, are nothing more than words and don’t necessarily demand my attention. I’m not as conscious of what other people think, and more confident in the path I’m taking.
“Janina couldn’t have come into my life in a better time. When I met her, I was undergoing a lot of changes, having just migrated to Australia. While trying to settle to a new life, I felt a little bit lost and overwhelmed. With Janina’s help and encouragement, I was able to get clarity on the bigger picture and figure out what I want in life. Through her coaching, I have become the most confident version of myself, and able to pacify the negative thoughts and fears that I constantly have. I have become more outspoken and comfortable talking to different people. With Janina’s guidance, I was able to figure out my vision for the future and what I need to do to make that a reality. At the end of our coaching, I am one step closer to fulfill my dream of being a social entrepreneur.”
