Cleelia asks just the right question at the right moment of reflection and did miracles in helping me shift my thinking from self-imposed barriers to opportunities. For me it was a surprise to have entered a natural state of self-reflection in between sessions to really come back to the next meet-up with progress made you can further build on.

It was a good experience that helped me remember what had worked for me in the past so that I can work on it again to achieve my goal.

Sara, IT Process Manager (Portugal)

I want to start by expressing my gratitude for the AMAZING experience with the coaching session Cleelia and I had. Thank you very much! 

The coaching sessions were very engaging and very informative. I was going through a transition phase at work and struggling a bit with the change, but Cleelia really helped me to see  that we can change and improve ourselves with the proper attitude, reactions and the right words and mindset. 

Leonor, Administrative Specialist (Portugal)

 I wholeheartedly recommend working with Cleelia. She supported me in the early stages of creating my coaching business, and during a 10-weeks process, boosted my confidence and the drive to pursue my dream career. Cleelia offered me an excellent level of support and guidance while at the same time challenging my limiting beliefs and helping overcome the fear of being visible online. She encouraged me to expand my comfort zone and truly show up for my business and my clients. After my coaching with Cleelia, I became more confident promoting my business online and speaking about my self-development journey. I became more committed to growing my business, showing up consistently, and making bold decisions like investing in my coaching certification, even though it felt out of my reach. Every session with Cleelia brought me more clarity and enthusiasm about my career. She has a talent for calling out on the BS while at the same time providing a warm and nurturing atmosphere. I'm immensely grateful for her guidance and for supporting my growth as a coach and an entrepreneur.

Cleelia is a fantastic coach. High energy and really digging in to drive outcomes. I was able to get to some tough decisions and next steps. Cleelia demonstrated great coaching technique. She has nailed the arc of coaching in my view. Really had some great results in our sessions.

Edward, Managing Director & ICF Peer Coach (Germany)

Even though I know a lot about coaching, before getting coached myself I was skeptical that it would help me in the way I needed it. I was skeptical that having so many questions to myself (“What’s the problem?”, “What do I want?”, “How could I possibly get there?”) that someone else - a stranger – could help me to find answers just by listening actively but not giving any advice. Very quickly Cleelia proved me wrong. Thanks to Cleelia I now understand how being coached can be so much more powerful than getting advice. If I had a concrete question I could get concrete advice followed by a concrete action and most likely a solution. However, if I only feel that something is wrong, but I don’t even know what it is, the situation is much more complex. Being coached is a process that has helped me to reduce this complexity and add some clarity. This can’t be achieved by one advice, nor by one coaching session. This needs to be explored over time. That’s why coaching might feel vague and fluffy (compared to getting advice), but in the end is so powerful.

Cleelia is a wonderful partner to guide you on this journey. I can absolutely recommend her!
