I have done 6 coaching sessions with Elisa within roughly 5 months. I did not have any previous experience with life coaching but was in a period where I was trying to figure out my next step in my career, knowing roughly what I wanted but not taking enough initiative due to insecurity and the feeling of not knowing where to start.
Elisa was able to ask the right questions, listen well and summarise back what I had said in a way that clarified my thoughts and allowed me to understand my goals or to re-assess my goals when necessary.
Throughout the sessions, she was very flexible and adapted her focus and coaching technique to the current situation – whether it was determining or re-assessing my professional goals, jointly coming up with accountable action plans, or sharing and practicing techniques that helped me prepare mentally for a job interview (which was successful).
Elisa never told me what to do, the coaching was a partnership whereby Elisa’s coaching skills enabled me to tease out the goals, problems and potential solutions by myself, getting me focused on homing in on what I really wanted to achieve and taking active steps towards it.
I am about to start my new job, in the research area I wanted to shift towards, and I am deeply grateful for Elisa’s guidance on the way, which was not only a success but also felt very positive – even if it hadn’t worked out, I would know that I had done the best I could. That is a great feeling, thank you, Elisa.
While I have done some traditional therapy before this is the first time I had ever tried coaching. I was not sure what to expect but Elisa guided me through this process in a calm and professional manner. I learned that unlike some other therapies that coaching is a very collaborative process and is not about telling people what do but giving them tools to see the strength and abilities they have but maybe could not see before. Occasionally when an impasse had been reached or it was clear I needed extra help to achieve these goals Elisa used some light hypnotherapy, which always turned out to be helpful. I feel the coaching I have received has markedly improved my life. The coaching has now made me more focused and structured in making progress towards my goals. It has also given me a greater confidence in my own skills and allowed me to see myself in a different way and unlock previously untapped resources. I can’t imagine any of these transformations being possible without the help of Elisa and can’t recommend her coaching skills highly enough!
This is the first time I've ever had life coaching and I didn't know what to expect. I was deeply moved by the support and guidance I got from Elisa. She kept a completely professional tone whilst guiding me through difficulties that were preventing me from achieving some crucial life goals. To tackle some of the more difficult issues that were preventing progress she used some gentle hypnosis to clear my mind and create new ways of dealing with things and it worked really well. I have now achieved all the things I wanted to do during that time, and am very relaxed and happy that I have done it all. I never thought that coaching could be so personal and in fact, it has taught me the exact tools that I need to navigate my own growth. I feel like I couldn't have done it without Elisa and that I know a tonne of better ways to tackle life head on now! I could not recommend anything more powerful than Life Coaching with Elisa Di Napoli.
