I was very unsure at first about going to see a life coach... I had thought about it on and off for a couple of years and finally reached a point where I made the call. It was a combination of wanting to better understand my thinking process and because I felt unable to manage things. It took me a while but I am so glad I made the call in the end.
Going to my first session I wasn't sure that I should be going. I had suffered no major traumas, I didn't consider myself to be depressed, I wasn't really sure what I wanted to achieve. I felt like an impostor, and worried that I would be politely but firmly told not to return, there were people more in need than me.
That's not what happened at all. Bianca dispelled all my fears instantly, she congratulated me on making the decision to go, I was assured that a life coach isn't only there to help people in desperate need. I felt totally at ease talking to her, I was surprised how open I was talking about myself, which was something I normally found incredibly uncomfortable and avoided whenever possible.
Bianca helped me identify the areas I wanted to work on, and we started making progress almost immediately. At the end of the first session I was completely sold, and walked out delighted that I had taken this first step. I had been surprised at the insights Bianca had made about me, things that I could tell were obviously true, but that I hadn't until the noticed.
I went to seven sessions with Bianca over three or four months. And each time I walked out feeling that significant steps had been taken. That's not to say that I was immediately able to implement the strategies in my life, but over time I was better able to identify triggers, flawed thinking and unduly negative thoughts. I felt more confident to make the changes I wanted to see in myself, and over this short period of time I felt that I had regained so many of the traits that I like about myself that I thought I had lost.
My sessions came to an end because I am moving abroad, which was one of the goals I had going in to my first session. That doesn't mean my journey is over. I am much more aware now of what I can do to improve my thinking, I am keen to reach new goals and I am excited about the journey there. This is in itself a great feeling for me, excitement being one of the things I had struggled to find before the sessions started.
I'd highly recommend Bianca to anyone, whatever your goals are, whatever you are trying to overcome or do, or if like me you aren't sure what it is yet. You're looking at reviews so you've taken the first step, now make the call, you won't regret it.
