I wanted to thank you for our work together. In the last months, your warmth, support, wit and intuition helped me in so many areas on my life, I am not sure that "career coach" is the right title for you 🙂
Before working with you, I had just left my "dream job". A lot of money, business class trips, a nice title on a business... too bad I hated the job and was slowly killing my soul. After almost 6 years in a career I never enjoyed but was what I had studied for and was "supposed" to do, I started suffering from adrenal fatigue and hypothyroid. After years of hating my job and not "speaking out" (= doing something about it) and finding my "voice" (= my purpose), I could tell that something was not right but I kept ignoring the feeling because what else could have been done right? Except that, I found out personally, the message will find a way to be heard, no matter what. And after having feelings, then thoughts, I finally got a physical message through adrenal fatigue (burnout) and hypothyroid. So I stopped my job and decided to take a few months break to think about what I wanted to do with my life.
Then, someone I hadn't talked to in years gave me your email address and I thought "why not?" And I am so glad I ended up sending you an email! Working with you helped me see things about me that I had ignored for so long. Doing your assignments and going over them with you each week, taught me so much about who I am, what makes me happy, my values... it had an impact on way more than just my professional life.
I now have a tool I can use to see if a job is in harmony with who i am or if it will just make me unhappy. I really got clarity on who I am and what I need to do to feel alive.
Since working with you, I don't feel lost and without hope anymore. I know my strengths, what makes me unique and how to use it. I know that there is a job that will make me feel like I am not working but it doesn't have to be scary and overwhelming, You showed me that I need to focus on the next step, while working towards the end goal.
You also taught me to listen to my intuition, trust and take action!
Your warmth, kindness and dedication are just incredible and it's incredible how you have been able to understand my fears, joys and needs. This was much more than just career coaching 🙂 Thank you so much Toy for the time spent working together, it was fantastic! “Lucie Robazza, Australia
