About me

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

Are you an expat who is struggling to build your home away from home? Or would you like to feel more confident in yourself - your forever home? I work with you to understand what’s holding you back, to get clear on your goals and to equip you with all the tools you need to achieve them.

Partner with me and embrace the changes you need to live your most fulfilling life. Are you ready to:

  • Transform your lifestyle?
  • Transform your career?
  • Transform your expat life?
  • Transform your body confidence?
  • Transform your self-confidence?

TRANSFORM YOUR LIFESTYLE

At some point we all find ourselves at a crossroads asking “What’s next?” We’re seeking change. While some already have a vision for their future they may be afraid to take the risk. Others will be so overwhelmed by choice, they can’t decide which path to take. With either scenario, the danger is inaction.

Here’s where I help.

With me by your side “What’s next?” is no longer a source of anxiety. Through coaching I help you get clear on your priorities, reframe any uncertainty and embrace the future. Meaning you move forward with purpose and confidence.

Let’s plan for what’s next.

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?

TRANSFORM YOUR CAREER

Are you happy at work? Or simply going through the motions? Life’s too short to be stuck in an uninspiring job simply because it pays the bills. If you’re miserable, lost or unsure how you ended up on this career path, it's time to make a change.

The people I help usually fall into one of two camps. Either you want to change careers but don’t know what you want to do instead or you have a dream but lack the confidence to pursue it.

Working together we’ll:

Clarify your dream role. Exploring your strengths, interests, passions and work preferences so that you leave knowing the career that is right for you.

Address the mental and emotional barriers getting in between you and your dream. And create a tangible plan to help you achieve it.

Are you ready to:

  • Create the career you want?
  • Step up and pursue your dreams?
  • Feel more in control of your life?

TRANSFORM YOUR EXPAT LIFE

Life as an expat isn’t always easy.

When everything about your new country - language, customs, food - is unfamiliar, it can make you feel disconnected and like you don’t belong. These feelings could manifest to the point you lose sight of why you moved in the first place. I know, I’ve been there.

In our coaching sessions you rebuild your sense of belonging. We develop the necessary tools to navigate cultural differences in your host country and manage your feelings about your home country. Leaving you full of confidence, purpose and in total control of your journey.

Are you ready to:

  • Find your home and happy place?
  • Get ready to move and get a fresh start somewhere else?
  • Embrace the opportunities your new home has to offer?

TRANSFORM YOUR BODY CONFIDENCE

When you can’t see beyond your own physical flaws it impacts everything. From your confidence, to the clothes you wear, to your relationships with other people, and most importantly, your relationship with yourself.

I help you take concrete actions to overcome your insecurities. We’ll look at how external pressures fuel your anxieties. We explore your strengths and learn to appreciate your flaws.

I want to be clear, this is not about dieting. My role is to help you see the beauty in you, and maybe embrace a different lifestyle.

Are you ready to:

  • Know your own worth? Show up and be seen?
  • Stop worrying what others may think?
  • Detach your value from your appearance?
  • And work on yourself on how to feel better?

TRANSFORM YOUR SELF-CONFIDENCE

We all have moments where niggling doubt creeps in. It’s that inner voice that pipes up and tells us we’re not good enough. When it takes over, we question ourselves, second-guessing every choice and underestimating our value. Not because we are incapable but because we lack confidence.

Self-sabotage is paralysing. Let’s work together to defeat it. I help you develop the right tools to address all those self-limiting beliefs which are getting in the way of you and your potential.

Are you ready to:

  • Trust and believe in yourself?
  • Build confidence and self-esteem?
  • Show up and be seen in your personal life and your career?

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
