Antonia Clews, Project Self Personal Change Coaching
As a change coach, I work with people who want to make some changes in themselves or in their lives, or who are finding life challenging.
I work with people who are struggling to feel any different or find a way forward to live as they want to feel. People who want to feel more like they are living as they want be.
Would you like to feel more like yourself, feel lighter or freer, have more space? See things differently and move through current confusion or stuckness and live life with more ease?
I enable people to change their relationship with themselves. The Project Self change process reveals, challenges and shifts. It’s a process of self-exploration founded on three principles that I have found to be the most affective principles for personal 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 and not being a version of yourself for others.
Clarity is about knowing about how to be now; not what to do then.
We start with where you are in your life in order to create awareness, lightness and clarity. We feel through, figure out and find out who you are and what you want. You develop practices, a mind-set and resilience to navigate and create change.
The exploration unfolds around your aspirations for yourself to:
Identify where you can benefit from acceptance, letting go, digging deeper. Illuminate your coping strategies and reactions so you can respond differently, be more connected to yourself and feel more centred and balanced;
Identify obstacles; what may be holding you back, negative self-beliefs, playing out stories, repeated patterns and how these originated
Reveal your values, how you really feel, what you already know and need to know so that you have a clearer sense of direction in the world.
I guide you through questioning and deep conversation, sometimes gentle, sometimes challenging, to help you to understand better your emotions and reactions. I share what I sense, notice and observe. We explore your whole experience (mind/body) responses, feelings, perspective, behaviour and thoughts within the safe space of our relationship

Training, qualifications & experience
I trained with Animas (Diploma in Personal Transformation Coaching, Distinction).
I have further certificates in Relationship, Somatic, Health & Wellbeing and Existential Coaching and Transactional Analysis. I have trained in Systemic Coaching and Emotional Resilience and draw on a range of therapeutic approaches and models. I am currently training in Internal Family Systems and Polyvagal Theory.
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.
I create a warm relationship and space in which you can give yourself time and attention and be given undivided attention. You can expect me to be direct, open 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
