“While studying for my master’s in social work , one of the first things we learned was to work from a strength’s perspective.

I really love that this was part of my learning. Otherwise, clinicians and even clients tend to focus on what’s wrong, what is not working, how “wrong” one feels.

I have taken this and much more into my coaching practice and I am happy to support you from the same strength’s perspective.

If you want to make some positive shifts and start moving in the direction you know you are meant to be on….let’s talk!” Guisela

*How to get what you deserve from your current situation when contemplating a job, career or relationship change
