About me


I'm Jolanta.

So nice to meet you :)

I'm really glad you're here.

In a nutshell, I'm ex-City worker, obsessive learner, poet, integrated trauma therapist, life and business coach, nature lover, who is dedicated to helping you to become your best version of you, your true self.

Working with me will transform you emotionally, mentally and spiritually and bring your authentic self and your genius to the light. No kidding here.

With that in hand, you can create the life and career you desire. Yes, happiness.

Please read on while listening to your heart.

Warmly, Jolanta.

I am a Life and Executive Coach, Integrated Trauma Therapist and Soul Healer. Years ago I retrained and left City investment banking job to start my Private Coaching and Consulting Practice. It was 2010... and I never looked back. I work with personal and corporate clients. I’m also Communication Skills Trainer, and HR Consultant. In my Coaching Practice, I integrate Contemporary Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy, NLP, EMDR, EFT, Havening, Mindfulness, Neuroscience and Shamanism.

My road to healing was long, painful and bumpy. I survived trauma and the dark night of a soul. There's a time in life when we know that we just need to heal and get over our inner obstacles and barriers. Because we can, because we are wired for healing.

It’s a human nature to grow and evolve in life. Our planet is constantly changing and evolving too. We always strive for something better than what we already have. Nothing is ever still. So, whether you are looking for personal development, achieving career goals, finding life purpose and fulfilment, improve your confidence, work/life balance or communication skills, or if you simply want to reduce everyday stress and anxiety and de-clutter your mind, hiring a coach like me can be the best option.

Change can be hard to do alone so having your personal support, sounding board and strategist in one person (me!) will get you where you want to be. I already believe in you and that you already have all the resources and talents you need. Trust me, the only thing you will need is your commitment and time.


What clients say...

"From the very first session with Jolanta, I started to thinking “I can” to major ideas that would reshape my life. Her energy and ability to listen closely had a positive impact on me from then on. I primarily solicited Jolanta’s help to get over anxiety issues that have ruled my daily life for the big part of it. She helped me to step on the other side of anxiety and find my inner peace and within a few sessions, I started to go easily for some activities without thinking too much or having preemptive blockages. She’s also very attentive to the body’s reactions and made me very conscious about the pain and tiredness I might get and I slowly started to move my body more and go more often for walks which had a great effect on my mind too and it amazed my husband and friends. The effects of the sessions we had never faded away, it sometimes gets difficult to find balance in life, but by just breathing slowly and reaching within, I always felt I had a new print left by Jolanta’s work with me to help me through." Karima from London

Life is an experimental learning process. Sometimes in your professional or personal life, you stumble across self-doubts, you lose focus, drive, motivation and confidence even when it comes to small everyday things. Sometimes underneath your every-day to do lists you feel stress, anxiety, and fear and you don't know why. Sometimes you have accomplished a lot in your life, have a strong drive to succeed and clear idea where you want to be and yet something holds you back. Sometimes you just feel stuck and don’t know where to go from here. Sometimes you just feel like you are depressed and not happy with how the things are in your personal or work life.

What would you do if these situations were happening in your life because you need to upgrade and learn something from it? What if these challenges are offering you positive growth? My job is to guide you to learn and build yourself, achieve exactly that positive growth, so you can become confident, calm, happy and live the life you want.

Let me tell you why coaching and psychotherapy work? Because our brains are wired for connection. It is natural that we need to connect with others and this interaction can change our brains. We can attune and learn from one another. The Therapist or Coach through the relationship and conversation with a client can stimulate the neuroplasticity of the clients' brain, enhance psychic integration and this creates changes in feelings, thoughts and generates new behaviours. It is scientifically proven that coaching can rewire our brains.

Depending on what you want to work on and what goals you have coaching might take you not only to achieving your goals but also it will take you through a process of self-discovery and transformation on a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual level. Very often I work with clients who feel lost in life and don't know who they are or what they want in life. If you are not sure of what do you want to achieve or what are your strengths and talents, I will help you to find out. Together, we can find out what's important to you and make it happen. You are not alone.

I will teach you how to communicate with yourself, your subconscious mind and your body. I will help you to clarify what works for you and what doesn't, how you would like to feel and develop in the future in each area of your life. At the end of the day what we really chase in life is a feeling. Not a car or money, or house, or career but an intangible feeling. We do things because we want to feel a certain way. Most of us want to feel safe, calm, confident and happy. So, how do you want to feel? Coaching will help you to learn how to create fulfilling life experiences, clarify and define how you can create the happiness you’ve always wanted, and manifest goals and desires for your life, career or business.

Coaching will help you to overcome your subconscious limitations and blocks standing on your way, very often keeping you uncertain and stuck.

We will work together to identify your current challenges and struggles that you are facing, and transform them into opportunities for growth, wisdom, and strength. I will challenge your status quo to discover subconscious negative patterns of behaviour that usually shape your life experience. We will tap and activate your internal resources, your excellence, aligning your values and belief system with your life so you can feel empowered to achieve your outcomes.

And finally, you will learn how to design an elegant strategy to get you where you want to be. I put a massive emphasis on developing your plans, strategies and practical, achievable action steps so you can follow through step by step without feeling overwhelmed. It's all about activating your excellent resources and integrating them with your everyday life. And of course, I will hold you accountable for implementing these changes.

So, if you have a burning desire to move forward, achieve more and learn who you are, undeniable commitment to live your full potential, determination, patience and curiosity I would love to work with you. And I believe if you are reading this page you already have it.

Personal development will improve your confidence and this will have has a positive effect on all areas of your life. You can strengthen your belief in yourself, self-esteem, improve your work-life balance, develop your creativity, intuition and courage to pursue the dreams you have. You can develop your personal leadership skills and presence and become a conscious creator of your own life.

What clients say...

“Jolanta you are such a lovable, kind and beautiful soul as well as a highly professional person. Over the last year, you have always been there for me as my coach and mentor with all your support, sharing knowledge and wisdom. It’s been a pleasure and an honour to work with you. I know that even though things are working so much better for me now, I still have to work on myself and there is still so much to learn and many new challenges to overcome. I strongly believe that you can help me and we will continue working this year on my limiting beliefs and replace them with positive ones so I can unleash my true self to conquer and achieve all my dreams, passions and goals. I know that with your support, encouragement, kindness, knowledge and professionalism, I am able to do so. I have a path full of uncertainty ahead of me. I feel excited and scared at the same time, but I know it will be ok, I feel ready to go through all these new challenges in my life and with your guidance, support and wisdom I know I will be fine. Your encouragement, kindness and wisdom are always so much appreciated.” Sonia from London

What clients say:

"Sometimes we meet people in our lives that touch our heart and somehow, change the course of everything. And the worst of that is that generally, those remarkable people never know how significant they were. Jolanta, I can’t just disappear from your life without telling you how wonderful you were with me and how much you’ve helped me. You always had loving words and support and I really appreciate it. But that is not all. You’ve helped me to discover myself, to define who I am and what I want. Thank you for changing my life, for opening my eyes and showing me the person I truly am and the potential that I have. I will never forget our conversations, as very often I remember them when I confront new challenges, when I take a decision and when I need to stop and focus on my real purpose. In summary, I always remember you with a special affection; a kind of positive and clarifying energy that you transferred onto me and has always been with me. You really marked my life and I feel so glad every time think of it. I am aware of things that I never thought before, and I owe you that personal development. Everything that you taught me, every word you said, helped me significantly and I will be eternally thankful. You are a wonderful person with a huge talent. I really wish the rest of the world would be able to share the same experience and appreciate you for all your charm personality full of generosity. THANK YOU." Angela C., Contemporary Artist

What clients say...

"I would describe Jolanta as a guiding light. She has helped me find clarity and direction during a challenging and dark period of my life. What I appreciate most was that we never dwell on the situation instead we have found ways to embrace it, accept it and ultimately move forward. Despite having worked with a number of coaches over the years, I have found Jolanta's approach to be totally unique and very refreshing. She is truly a holistic practitioner and has actively worked with me on addressing all levels of my being; mental, physical, emotional and spiritual. I never know what to expect from a session as she brings such an array of tools and techniques to the table ensuring I get results. Sometimes we are talking, another session writing and brainstorming, another visualizing and then creating anchors and movement patterns that have me dancing around the room. When I have a session with Jolanta I am aware that I need to be prepared to work hard, to be challenged and pushed out of my comfort zone, but I can also rest assured that she will provide me with accountability, understanding and support but most of all I know she believes in me and my ambitions. She offers encouragement and when I need a push she is there to remind me to keep growing, striving and dreaming big!! Jolanta, thank you for supporting me on this leg of the journey and for inspiring me to find my own way to serve people. You are an Earth Angel.

"Coaching was a lifesaver for me. I desired changes, but I didn't know what I wanted to change. Coaching sessions helped me to believe in myself, rebuild my self-esteem, reconnect with inner me and, finally, move forward. I was discovering my full potential and becoming free from limiting beliefs during each meeting. I know I still have a long way to go, but I'm not afraid of it, thanks to Jo. She made me fearless. I think each of us needs someone like Jo. She asks the right questions, motivates you, believes in you. Most important is that she reminds you to be brave every time. Because she is like an angel who picks you up when your wings forget how to fly. Thank you Jo." Agnes.S.
