A few months ago, I found myself in a weird and sad place. I was seriously bored and unhappy at work and as a consequence I was becoming increasingly angry. This had been lasting for a while, only getting worse with time. However, I also found myself unable to take practical steps to change my situation. I was browsing through job offers in my line of work but never getting to actually send a CV anywhere. I had the intuition that changing jobs to a similar position in another organisation would quickly end up being the repetition of an unsatisfying situation that would feel exactly like another dead-end.
I attended a talk by Bruna, and then signed up for a free taster session, and then decided to work with her for 3 months. A couple of months after it ended, I view it as an intense and highly rewarding process and I feel that the work that I’ve done has equipped me with a set of powerful instruments that I can use to build a better professional life for myself (including a practical toolbox to deal with moments of doubts).
My main takeaway from Bruna’s talk was that any satisfying career-change (one that would make me happy) needed to be deeply rooted in my own values and dreams. This sounded meaningful and got my attention. And the first steps of the work consisted in a process of reconnection with exactly that – the dreams I did not even dare to consider as actual possibilities – and then giving myself the liberty of saying it aloud, expressing clearly what I wanted for myself. This in itself was quite intense and it felt joyfully liberating.
But that was just the starting point: with Bruna’s encouragements, I then worked on refining a clear vision of my ideal situation and – quite importantly – on designing a practical strategy to achieve my objectives. In between the sessions, was intense work guided by reading material, time-consuming exercises and workbooks.
At the end of these 3 months with my coach, I have found myself ready to engage in to the realisation of my professional dream. I am very happy to have this reconnection with my creative and imaginative self, but I also feel capable of turning my vision into reality. Instead of feeling trapped in a cage, I now feel that I am in command of my life.
I’m deeply satisfied with the experience of being coached by Bruna and feel grateful for her guidance and help.
