Coaching

Coaching offers tools for growth, self-reflection and personal development. With the help of a coach you can formulate goals, make a concrete plan of action, and follow small steps to reach what you aim for.

I have received my coaching diploma in Brain Based Coaching from the NeuroLeadership Institute. I am currently working towards my Associate Certified Coach-certificate from the International Coaching Federation (ICF).

I offer coaching for individuals and organisations. Online and in person in Helsinki, Finland.

Step 1

Getting started

Click here to book your free 30 min session. During this session we get to know each other, I present what coaching is about and how it can work for you and your needs. After this session you decide if you want to work together. No strings attached, the decision is always yours to make.

Step 2

The process begins

It can be that we meet for one session, or your journey continues for months or years. During the process you will work in a way that is different from many other relationships you have. You will wander outside your comfort zone at times, reach new insights, see yourself and the world from new perspectives. You might feel proud, scared, curious and happy - all at the same time.

Step 3

The process ends

We evaluate and conclude the journey together, and you will continue on with new tools and perspectives. We celebrate and acknowledge everything you have accomplished. This is a very important part of the process that will lead you on to new adventures, challenges and possibilities a little more prepared than before.

The benefits of coaching

Coaching is an individual journey that has as many topics, insights and outcomes as there are clients. My clients have listed the following benefits as examples of benefits they received from coaching. Benefits of coaching:

  • Support in formulating goals

Customers about me

“Amanda is a present, professional and creative coach. She helped me reach new insights, and I got answers I didn't even believe would be possible in the time we had. Her empathy, experience and way of asking the right question at the right time, gave me clarity and concrete steps to move forward. A wonderful moment of relaxation in the beginning made me completely precent for the session.”

"When I started on my coaching journey, I didn't know what to expect. I had no prior experience of coaching and the thought of sessions with a coach made me really nervous. I doubted if coaching could really help me. Quickly I realised that it really can. With the help of her personality and professionalism, Amanda had the ability to create a safe environment, where it felt good to tackle difficult, as well as easier topics. During the journey I had many new insights, insights that I think were possible to reach only through the interaction we had. I sincerely recommend coaching and Amanda as a coach. My experience is that I got more out of this journey than I could ever have imagined being possible"

Nytt år

En av de stora grejerna jag jobbat med under hösten är Burn Bright Community - en community för högpresterande kvinnor som vill skapa ett liv där både karriär, familj och fritid får plats, utan att bränna ut sig. I början av december startade jag gruppen och idag har den 122 medlemmar. I januari testar jag själv på några nya vanor. Den nyaste vanan jag nu är igång med är att göra fem solhälsningar varje morgon i fem dagar. Sedan vilodag på helgen då mornarna ännu är mina små barns. Nästa vecka kan du vara med om du vill! Håller en fem dagars mini-kurs där jag håller en 15 minuters morgonsession via Zoom.

Att hitta en coach

Att ta hjälp av en coach är att bjuda in någon i sina tankar, drömmar och rädslor. Det är ett stort steg och för att hitta rätt människa att dela den resan med är det skönt att veta vad man kan förvänta sig. Jag erbjuder allt från enskilda timmar till en sex-tolv månaders process av coaching. Idag tänkte jag öppna upp vad som händer om man jobbar med mig under en längre tid.

3 sätt att varva ner och somna

Mörkret gör mig trött men konstigt nog är det svårt att komma ner i varv och somna, trots att min kropp bestämt säger att den kunde sova dygnet runt om det vore möjligt. Jag har dessutom två små barn som vaknar under nätterna och tidigt om mornarna, så att få tillräckligt med vila är viktigt för att vardagen skall fungera.
