“Aline, thank you for going on this journey with me. Just four sessions with you helped me to make peace with myself. I feel more content in my work life and empowered to move forward. You have an incredible ability to lead a session without leading the narrative. Through simple tasks and questioning, I truly felt like the answers I needed came from within me and that’s so much more powerful than having ideas put upon a person from the outside.”
“Aline’s familiarity with academia meant that she understood the pressures of that work environment, as well as the mindset it encourages. Her approach to coaching challenged that mindset, with its emphasis on the body and the heart as trustworthy sources to tap into. I hadn’t experienced creative exercises in a context where they work to reveal unexpected perspectives on the questions that were keeping me feeling stuck. Aline suggested exercises in response to what came up in the conversation and suggested ways to build on these, drawing out unexpected insights from the outcomes. Through our sessions, I gained a new confidence in my ability to do this for myself, and to use it to find a way to get beyond my habitual ways of thinking. I recommend Aline as a coach to anyone feeling caught in reactive thoughts and doubts in any area of their life, professional or personal.”
“There are not enough words to describe my gratitude to Aline. The sessions were innovative, fun, respectful, and at times, mind-blowing. I learned an incredible amount from Aline, and she has a real talent for reminding you of the skills you already have – and how to re-use them. Like many people, I don’t normally seek support, but these sessions came at a really crucial time and having gone with an open mind, they went beyond helping – they have been life-changing. Thank you, Aline, for your wisdom, patience, compassion, humour and time.”
“Thank you Aline for your deep listening and understanding of the problems I was attempting to solve. Your sharp, clear insights were a great help and guided me towards making the right decisions. I was impressed by your ability to adapt and come up with novel and surprising methods to bring me to my own sense of knowing and trust. You have a rare talent for getting to the heart of a problem and I have already recommended you further.”
“Aline, I want to thank you for the support you recently gave me at a difficult crossroads in my life. I am not normally one to seek help from others because I tend to think I am in control of my own circumstances. I was wrong. Firstly, I was truly impressed with your compassion. I never once felt judged or that I should be ashamed of the situation I was in. Instead, I was greeted with great understanding, which enabled me to have total trust in you and your processes. In turn, you opened my mind to new ways of viewing the obstacles I was facing, and to reframe my feelings about the situation I was in. For me, the outcome has been clarity, to see the future in a new light and have a much more focused path to better times. Once again, thank you Aline.”
