How does a session of Intuitive Guidance work?
One session of Intuitive Guidance lasts 1 hour and is done online. You will see and hear me the entire time. You will also need to turn on your audio and video so that I can hear and see you.
When you sign up for a session, you will receive information on how to prepare. Those seeking an oracle card reading should not expect to receive a simple “yes or no” answer; instead, the cards are used to guide you toward making decisions wisely. The question should focus on your own actions, not those of others.
During the session, I will ask you to tell me your question. Then, I intuitively pick the cards and interpret the messages that come through. Other messages might come through beyond the cards.
I will also ask you questions and involve you in the conversation, so please be ready to interact via audio and video.
Feel free to bring pen and paper. As a fist step in taking charge of your life, I recommend taking notes during the session so that you have something to refer back to as you move forward in your journey.
As a gift from your angels and me, I will tune in to your guardian angels after our session and send you a follow-up e-mail with an affirmation that I receive for you so that you can practice it daily to uplift your life.

Why do you offer coaching packages and not stand-alone sessions?
I believe that deep transformation occurs over a period time and with consistent work. One hour of inspiration can leave you feeling pumped for the day and ready to take on the world, but that effect usually dissipates and not much change occurs in your life especially if no follow-up action is taken. How often have you been to a workshop or motivational speaking event, felt awesome during, but then your life went back to "normal" shortly after?
My coaching is for people who are determined to change their life in deep, lasting ways - whatever it takes.
My coaching packages are tailored for people who are serious about their transformation and ready to do the deep work, and who know that successful change doesn't happen overnight.
My coaching is not a cookie-cutter approach; it is highly personalized to your needs and, at a minimum, includes regular meetings, follow-ups, "homework", e-mail support from me between coaching sessions, and some awesome surprises.
How do I know if I'm ready for change?
Real change can only come from deep within.
Here are roughly four stages to feeling ready for change (the stages are not mutually exclusive; they often overlap):
At this stage, you become aware and are starting to think about change. You'd like to change some aspects of your life, but change is not a priority right now so you're not willing to commit yet. It's a "nice to have", but you don't want the hassle. You're not spending a lot of time on this, just thinking about it occasionally. If someone showed up with a magic wand, you'd wish for the change because it requires no effort and struggle on your part.
For example, visiting the doctor, who makes you aware that you are overweight. You start thinking about getting in shape and living a healthy lifestyle.
If you're at this stage, you're not ready for true, deep change. Instead, consider reading inspirational or motivational books about the changes you're thinking about (for example, a book on happiness), attend various events or courses on the topic, or start following some public figures who teach or talk about those types of changes.

Preparing to Be Ready
At this stage, you're learning more in depth about what's involved to make the change that you're considering. You've really gotten into reading books or motivational quotes, watching inspirational videos, attending uplifting events on the topic, taking courses, or talking to like-minded people. You're seriously thinking about change; it's itching you to do something about it. You can't ignore it anymore; it's a constant nag in the back of your mind (or heart). You are reaching new levels of understanding about what's involved in the change that you're considering to make and what it requires of you in terms of commitment. You're slowly starting to do something about it, but you're wobbling between excitement and fear, commitment and non-commitment. You are advancing, but not in a steady and continuous fashion; you often feel like you're coming back to where you were. You may also find yourself overcommitting to many things, and not actually doing them in the end. You want to avoid the hassle and struggle and more often than not you revert back to old habits.
For example, learning more about nutrition and exercise. You become conscious of what you're eating and how it benefits (or not) your body. You read online articles and watch videos about healthy meals. You bookmark those that you find interesting. You also learn about the benefits of exercise and how to establish a routine. You try to buy healthier alternatives and work out at home, but it ends up being inconsistent. When you're stressed or tired, which is often, you revert back to old, comfortable habits (e.g., having the usual food or comfort food such a chocolate and chips).
If you're at this stage, you're not ready for true, deep change yet. Instead, consider diving deeper into learning more about what you need to go through the change or attend meetups with like-minded people who talk about those types of changes and can give you the support you need.

At this stage, you want to make a change, but are afraid. The more you think about it, the more the fear resurfaces...because you know it's inevitable; it's just a matter of time before you need to do it for yourself. You feel stuck between what you think you "should" do and what your heart "wants" to do in regards to undertaking the change. You feel change on the horizon, and at this point you know it's coming. You know that it's all dependent on you; no one else can do it for you. You're trying to do it on your own, but find that it's not as easy as you thought. You're progressing, but hit a plateau. You know that asking for help will catapult you forward, but are too shy or unwilling because you want to do it by yourself. But deep down you know that things would go faster and better if you'd just reach out to someone. So you start shopping around for someone who could help you, which can become overwhelming because of too many choices and trying to do too much. You're not quite ready to commit and show up fully; you're sort of waiting for the right person to show up. You're waiting for an external sign to show you that THIS IS IT so that you can embark on your new journey to transformation. You almost do it, but still hold back whenever you feel close to committing to the transformation - just like when you want to dive in a pool but first dip your foot in the water to feel the temperature...and you dip it a few times before you actually summon the courage to jump. You sort of want to make the investment - mental, emotional, physical, financial (but the required investment can show up as an excuse as to why you're not making the change yet).
For example, becoming aware that nutrition and exercise are just part of the story, and perhaps self-esteem and other limiting beliefs are involved, which are blocking you from living the healthy lifestyle that you want so much. But you're not sure if you want to open that painful Pandora box. You're considering to join a gym and hire a nutritionist and personal trainer, but you'd rather give it a serious try before you spend that money; the prices aren't very attractive so why not save a buck? So you're seriously working out at home and preparing healthy meals. You're losing some weight, but hit a plateau and get frustrated and discouraged...so you go back to your comfort zone that includes unhealthy habits to try to cope with the disappointment.
If you're at this stage, you may be ready for true, deep change and my coaching may be for you. If you can commit yourself to talk to a few coaches and show up fully, then chances are you might find someone with whom you deeply resonate and you'll feel strongly about embarking on your transformation journey with this person.

At this stage, some fear is still there but nothing will hold you back from moving forward. You are actively seeking change and are determined to go through it. You are willing to make the investment - mental, emotional, physical, financial. You do whatever it takes and there's no turning back. No one can talk you out of it. You're 100% in. You know it's now or never. You know you won't regret it because this is what you truly want - whatever the cost. You know deep down that your personal transformation doesn't have a monetary value, but rather it is something powerful that will stay with you for the rest of your life and will bring you to new heights of happiness, peace, fulfillment, and success.
For example, joining a gym and hiring a personal trainer and nutritionist. You commit to hit the gym 3 times a week and put it in your calendar. You do the workouts that your trainer built with you. You also follow the nutrition plan that you built with your nutritionist; when you shop for groceries, you only put healthy choices in your cart. Your trainer and nutritionist also help you understand unhealthy habits that have an emotional root and they help you overcome them. You know someone is holding you accountable and you're tired of delaying change; you're in 100%. You know that the money you invested doesn't come close to a lifetime of perfect health.

How does an Empowerment Coaching package work?
We work together one-on-one for a minimum of three months; anything less than that is not enough to create lasting change.
We initially meet for a powerful conversation, during which you get to feel if I am your coach and I get to feel if you are my client. This discovery meeting is free and will help us determine if we're "meant for each other" and want to commit to working together for a determined period of time.
If you say "YES!" and if I say "YES!", your life will change!

What's the difference between coaching and therapy?
While coaching and therapy share certain similarities, they do differ in several ways. Here are some important differentiations:
The therapist sees the client from a medical perspective. He analyzes them and tries to find the answers or solutions to the client's problems. The therapist is seen as the expert. In comparison, coaching is for individuals who are emotionally and psychologically healthy. The coach is not a healthcare professional and is not the expert in identifying solutions for the client; the client is seen as their own expert for finding their own answers and the coach is there to guide and facilitate the process.
Therapy seeks to help the client recover, while coaching sees the client as whole and seeks to help them achieve new heights of personal success, fulfillment, and happiness.
Therapy focuses on the past and on recovering from past traumas, anxiety, depression, or other mental and emotional troubles that affect one's ability to function normally day to day. The focus is on finding what's not working in the client's life and fixing it through a therapeutical approach. In comparison, the starting point in coaching is the present with a focus on the future from that point forward - on the person that the client wants to become and the life that they want to live. Even if coaching will, at certain points, touch on the past to understand certain blockages and limiting beliefs, the essence still focuses on learning from the past to shape the future that the client wants.
Therapy can focus on introspection, while coaching is dynamic and combines introspection with action and change.
Therapy focuses on the emotional aspect, recovery, and understanding of oneself. In comparison, coaching combines the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual aspects to help the client unleash their full potential in life and achieve their goals.
Coaching also helps the client realize that they are the only ones who have the power to change their lives.
So should you seek out a therapist or a coach? This decision is a personal one and depends on what you are looking for.
If you have been diagnosed with a certain mental illness or are experiencing life challenges that affect your ability to function normally day to day, but want to try coaching, some coaches will require you to seek permission from a therapist first.
How do I know which coach is right for me?
Finding a great coach for you is a matter of the flavour that you're looking for. It all comes down to trusting your heart and intuition (gut feeling).
It's always a good idea to read about the coach you'd like to work with. Check out their website and social media, and see what they're about. If you get a good feeling about this person - if you resonate with who they are and what they have to offer, sign up for a discovery session. A great coach knows that there needs to be chemistry before they can coach you, and they offer a free discovery session so that you can explore this together.
When you interact with the coach, pay attention to how you're feeling. Here are some guiding questions:
What happens to you during the conversation - emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually?
Is the conversation so powerful that you want to have another one?
Did your time spent with this person feel magical?
Do you see yourself being accompanied by this person in your transformation journey?
A good coach will let you know if there is chemistry or not.
If there is no chemistry, don't get discouraged. There is a coach for everyone, and there is definitely one for you! Better to keep looking for the right fit than settle for less.
If there is chemistry, that's awesome! What next? The coach will propose to you to work with him or her. Remember that the decision to commit to your transformation is yours; it is not the coach's responsibility to convince you why you need change in your life. So if you're all in, then you're set to embark on a journey of deep, powerful transformation!
If there is one thing I would advise, it's the following: do not confuse fear with intuition (gut feeling). Often, when it comes to personal development, people don't have a budget like they do for their bills, a new TV or new furniture, groceries, etc. So if you're feeling stuck at the money you need to invest in your personal development and that's the reason you decide not to work with a coach, ask yourself if the fear to get out of your comfort zone manifests as a monetary excuse. You need to get clear with yourself if improving your life is a priority. Deep down we know that personal transformation is worth beyond monetary value because it has life-long effects that ripple in every area of our life. As such, your heart will always lead you to a place of self-improvement, not avoidance. One of the best indicators to differentiate between fear and intuition is the following: fear manifests as a tightening pit in the stomach - you feel worried, anxious, and quick to find excuses as to why you should not do something; in comparison, your heart reassures you of what you truly need to live a life that's authentic to your full potential, and that usually includes going out of your comfort zone no matter the cost (emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, financial).
