Raphaela is a true professional with a natural talent for getting to the core of your problems and helping you own the process as you begin moving forward. When I initially came to Raphaela, I was frustrated with going in circles,and not feeling like I was making progress towards a life I’ve always wanted. I didn't know how to get out of my own way, but she helped me with regaining focus and staying on track so I could complete my daily, weekly and work towards my long term goals.
I now have achieved the biggest thing for my life which is getting clear about my career goals learning the steps to take to get there, and working on this every day. Also during this process I felt comfortable sharing my faith with her and knowing she would be able to respond to that accordingly providing guidance and not steer me away from my Christian beliefs during this process. I have developed a support system and put things in place to help me maintain a healthy mindset to keep moving forward.
I recommend Raphaela’s coaching services to anyone who feels stuck, unsure about next steps in areas of their career/life and wants support in having a safe space to explore , gain insight, direction and clear strategies to move forward. She will keep your goals at the forefront and help you take steps with getting out of your comfort zone.
