Genia Mineeva – Strategic Communications Consultant
“The powerful conversation I took part in has completely sorted out my life-work balance issue. As anyone with an executive role and young children, I struggled. The decisions I made as a result of this conversation were the best in my life.
I’ve been raving about this experience to my friends for months now and many of them have joined the project. I found my coach’s approach to be thoughtful, non-judgemental, I felt totally at ease. Also the beauty of it is that it’s your own thoughts and ideas, but without the gentle guidance it’s tricky to listen to yourself to that extent.”
Dr Pantea Lotfian – Managing Director, Camrosh Ltd.
“Participating in the Powerful Conversation project, we focused on a particular issue I faced. What stood out for me was my coach’s willingness to challenge my assumptions and question my long held beliefs. By doing so she helped me discover my blind spots to the issue. For me Coaching is powerful when it helps shift my thinking. My coach achieved that by her gentle persistence on pushing me out of my established beliefs. As the result of the sessions I have work to do but at the same time I am energized to make the changes as I can see the full picture now”.
Rayna – Financial Analyst
“I can say that thanks to the powerful conversation I participated in I have got some useful techniques as to how to achieve my objectives more effectively and understand my abilities on a much deeper level. I would absolutely recommend to anyone to dive in to such coaching experience as the approach is really productive and positive. I felt that we are really focusing on my individual abilities. It was tailor made experience.”
Jeffery Myers – Social entrepreneur within the young community
“I had the privilege to take part the project, which was very powerful and enlightening. We dove in on different experiences within my life’s past and present, in order to find the strong connections which may affect me today. We explored my strengths and weaknesses, and the elements which fuel them. We looked at the outside influences that helped create my perspective, and we determined how these perspectives affect me mentally, physically, and emotionally. Nevertheless we tied everything towards my vision and what I wanted to create with my understandings and awareness. The experience was eye opening and very useful in many ways to the extent that I would recommend it to any person looking for effective tools to help develop and support their personal growth. Thanks again for everything you are doing to help support the world at large!”
Dr Orlando Fernandez – Thought leader
“I took part in one of the powerful conversations and found that it helped me to see an aspect of my life that is confusing in a new way. The conversation was illuminating and made me aware of contradictory feelings that needed to be resolved in order to move forward. We concentrated on these feelings and found out that the contradiction that I was feeling was more a feeling than an actual fact. Yu helped me to clarify my assumptions and she left me in a position in which I can take it forward. She did it with a lot of tact and patience, but relentlessly, not allowing me to falter until we reached a breakthrough. Only when we had reached a milestone did we conclude. I appreciated her energy and commitment and I look forward to have more of these conversations in the future.”
Xing Wang – Chartered accountant
“The experience was intense for me. The topics we covered were the ones that I have consciously or subconsciously tried to avoid in the past. The very understanding and trusting approach made me open up and dig deeper into those areas. I thoroughly enjoyed this powerful conversation and find it very meaningful to me, especially at this stage in my life. There are two concepts that I feel were particularly helpful. One was ‘design your future’ which is totally a new way of thinking for me. The other was ‘what I want to do in my life’, rather than ‘should, could, would’. I believe these two concepts are inter-connected and will help me take a new approach in terms of finding out what I really what to do, and how I can achieve it and make positive changes in my life.”
Kathryn Gerrard – Civil engineer
“My work with Yulia was an amazing journey of self-discovery, where she guided me through the process, so that by the end of it I had a clarity on what I would like to achieve and how to get there. She helped me to discover some negative believes I had about myself and gave me the tools to change them to positive ones. In the end I had a deep feeling of self achievement as Yulia never advised me on what to do but made me realise that I knew it all alone and have a power to enhance my life in all its glory and bring my vision of it into reality. I would definitely recommend my coach to anybody who is seeking to work on their vision, however big or small it might be. She was sensible and sensitive at the same time, great listener and fun to work with, it was a fulfilling, deep but at the same time light and uplifting experience even though we touched some sensitive sides of my life. I can not thank Yulia enough for helping me to discover and remove some blocks I had, as well as to understand who am I and the fact that it’s in my hands to be content or change my life for the better.”
