The Project Self Change Process is founded on three principles that I have found to be the most affective for personal change:
Awareness is the project. You are the explorer and the exploration.
Lightness is being more of who you are; not who you think you should be. How you can be; not how you think you can’t be.
Clarity is knowing how to be now; not what to do then.
My time working with Antonia has been a really important time and has brought about genuine, positive change. What has been most key for me is taking the opportunity to accept the current situation and work forward more confidently having evaluated the things I had let hold me back. I’ve gained a lot of confidence through this process and I’ll be checking in with Antonia in the future.
Antonia’s coaching style is inspiring, and this has given me a new perspective. As a result, I feel more comfortable with myself. Challenging and supporting, Antonia’s excellent rapport skills held the space for me to explore and I found out it’s not the outcome but the journey. I am now more self-aware, focused and relaxed.
Antonia finds out about your life, pulls it apart and then discusses what is important to you and why. She can be compassionate but will also help you face up to the issues. Each session looked at different areas of my life and without exception something significant came out of each one. I put in place some of the action which helped to clear the depression/fog/burden (whatever you want to call it) in my life. Don’t go along to Antonia if you just want cosy chats, be prepared to have your life changed. My journey has not finished but life has certainly improved.
Antonia is very attentive in her listening. She encouraged me to explore my strengths, not by suggestion but by realisation, and also to realise that some of my perceived weaknesses were perhaps not so.
Antonia is very approachable and professional in her dealings with clients and gets right to the heart of a subject, saying just a couple of words that make you think, giving you feedback that hits the spot, throwing into the conversation an astute observation that you might have been ignoring for years.
During Life Coaching sessions with Antonia, I have become illuminated to myself in a way that does not easily translate into words. I expected some gentle probing on her part and considering on mine. Antonia’s insightful and incisive questions elicited keen feeling responses. I have the sense of a deep shift occurring. I started the sessions with the aim of becoming able to identify my skills. Something beyond that is happening; I am now beginning to identify myself. I am moving towards claiming (or perhaps recognising) a ‘me’ shaped space in the world. Antonia is totally present, allows silence and shows humour and empathy. There is always a feeling of having time and space.
