About me


I am a qualified and accredited life coach with a strong social work background. I am working with children and adults to effect change in their personal and professional life helping individuals be proud of where they are in lives and fully embracing who they are. Do you want to be that grateful person? I can work with you on your personal goals or professional goals. I can help you raise your standards, stay motivated, develop new skills, and routines which will lead to greater success. If you want to accomplish something new or need help with something you have struggled with for a while  or maybe you are going through a life transition right now and need support to find your balance, taking an important  decision or   to keep your focus to get the work done. I can provide structure, advice and motivation to support you to accomplish your goals and enjoy the fruits of your labour.

To your success,

Cornelia Tiganov (Coaching Stars)
