As an internal change coach, I work with people from the inside out, rather than focusing on what it is you need to take action on or goals you need to set.
I work with people who are struggling to find a way forward or to live as they want to feel, who want to make some changes in themselves or in their lives, or who are finding life challenging - and don’t really know how to change things. You may be feeling stuck, lost, unfulfilled, overwhelmed or anxious. You may have lost a sense of direction, or confidence in yourself.
Much of what holds us back is our relationship with ourselves and how we perceive, react and think about things; how we meet our experience. Some of what we carry needs attending to, some of it we can let go. I guide you to understand and notice your own internal processes within the safe space of our relationship, beyond judgement.
I have found these three principles to be most helpful in supporting change:
Awareness is the choice point
Lightness is who you are; not who you think you are. How you can be; not how you think you can’t be or should be
Clarity is about knowing how to be now; not what to do then
As you free yourself up, this will enable you to move through the current challenge to live life with more ease and a sense of spaciousness and possibility.
These three processes support internal change:
Explore: what may be holding you back; unfolding struggle and conflict, resistance, negative self-beliefs, self-talk, stories and ‘should’ standards
Establish: ground, safety, regulation and self-kindness; which parts of you need acknowledgment, understanding triggers, nervous system and mind/body connection.
Expand: illuminating what matters, wants, resilience, your values, inherent knowing, self-trust, choiceful response, possibility.
I create a warm relationship and space. As a coach I’m working alongside you as an co-explorer and move between compassion and challenge. You can expect me to be non-judgemental, direct, open, intuitive and astute and to bring warmth, humour and respect. I would describe myself as down to earth, independent, free-spirited and creative. And I love the coaching process.
Please do feel free to get in touch. Antonia
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained with Animas (Diploma in Personal Transformation Coaching, Distinction) 2014. I am an Internal Family Systems practitioner and trained in Polyvagal Theory (nervous system) and integrate these two approaches as they had the most affect on me personally. I also work somatically which means including the body in explorations, as a source of wisdom. I draw on a range of therapeutic approaches and models in my coaching and I am constantly learning. I am trauma informed.
I am also a qualified Coaching Supervisor to other coaches.
I have worked in the voluntary sector in homelessness, housing, and arts and wellbeing and in architecture, creative education research and development in a range of roles.
