About me

Hello! I am Adele, founder of Ichinen Coaching and a certified Transformational Coach.

Imagine what you could achieve if you felt more confident. Would you switch careers? Make different life choices? I help people who are at a crossroads in life find their purpose and fulfil their true potential.

Most of us lose sight of what we want at one time or another. You might wonder how you ended up on this particular path. It can be difficult to understand what is the right choice and what to do. It in turn affects your self-esteem, clarity and so on. It’s a vicious circle.

I work with you to understand what’s holding you back. Together we address the niggling self-doubt and unlock those limiting beliefs that are sabotaging you. We get clear on your goals and priorities, equipping you with all the tools you need to achieve them.

With me by your side “What comes next?” is no longer a source of anxiety. Instead you will embrace the changes you need to live your most fulfilling life.

Are you ready to:

  • Take ownership of your choices?
  • Proactively seek opportunities for your own happiness and advancement?
  • Build the courage to overhaul your life?

Happy Clients

"My journey with Adele has been amazing. I met a joyful, dynamic, brilliant, intelligent and caring person who helped me to achieve a very important change in my life. I had been working as an Engineer in London for six years. I had been sending CVs for four years without so much as an interview. We started coaching in July. By September, I found a job in my hometown of Rome, earning the same salary I was receiving in London and improving the quality of life." Damiano V. - Engineer

"I am super happy that I have found Adele as my coach! I couldn't ask for anyone better. I feel encouraged, braver, reassured, I no longer pressure myself thinking “yeah I really SHOULD do this or that” anymore. Now when I explore what I want to do I ask myself why, and only after that I take steps to reach my goals. The goals that I have chosen, not the ones imposed on me. " Nadine W. - Journalist and Professional Photographer

"My coaching with Adele has been literally life changing. I can’t be thankful enough. Throughout the entire process, I never felt “weird” or “wrong” and was able to talk about whatever I was feeling without the fear of being judged. I really hope that people going through similar experiences will see that there is support out there and it is not just their cross to bear." Luna R. - Dr, Researcher in Biomedical Sciences

"The coaching sessions I've had with Adele so far have been important opportunities to connect with myself. With each issue we’ve tackled, she has offered me a chance not only to find a practical solution to the problem, but also to acknowledge how I would break the pattern. During this journey together, I have learned many tips to overcome my own hurdles. I will definitely keep having coaching sessions with her. Thank you Adele!" David F. - Pharmacist, Herbalist and Nutritional, Nutraceutical Consultant

"I got so lost. My relationships and my job just weren’t making me happy. After just a couple of sessions with Adele things became clearer and I value her support more than I can explain.Now I have the tools and skills to face whatever life throws at me (and there have been some pretty awful things thrown my way recently) and to come out of the other side still smiling.If you want a professional who is insightful, supportive, non-judgemental and a joy to talk to, then speak to Adele." Stefania S. - Yoga Teacher and Maternity Nurse
