Scientific studies show that coaching is a great investment. It increases life satisfaction and professional success and improves relationships.
The Journal of Positive Psychology found that coaching has positive effects on the outcomes of performance/skills, well-being, coping, work attitudes and goal-directed self-regulation.
Also, ongoing coaching is more effective than a one-time intervention. A study showed that while group training with managers increased their productivity by 22%, including a one-on-one, eight-week coaching session for the managers pushed up productivity by 88%.

Whether it's feelings of shame, guilt, or any other unpleasant overwhelming emotions, feeling them can be extremely challenging. In fact, some people have a hard time performing at their peak level because of old difficult emotions that are haunting them and appearing when least expected.
Part of the coaching process involves discovering why you are feeling these emotions. If they are coming up, it means that there is something that you need to experience, and usually the emotions won't stop until they are fully acknowledged and experienced.
The bad news is that there probably is a reason why you have avoided feeling these emotions until now. It's hard to feel them. The good news is that once felt fully, these emotions can teach you valuable insights about yourself. Also, once felt fully, there is a tremendous amount of energy that can be released, and become available to you to utilize.
A quialified coach knows what is the right amount of exposure to these feelings, so you can experience them fully without feeling overwhelmed. A coach will provide a safe space for you to explore whatever it is that you need to feel in a way that is productive rather than disruptive. They can also teach you how to use these emotions to your advantage instead of letting them control you and disrupt your life.
What I most appreciated about working with Lynn Saboe was her ability to listen and effectively challenge me to develop executable plans that fit my style and experience, and to implement these plans in just two months. Thanks to her support, the quality and speed of my transition was substantially enhanced.

Zsofia Juhasz is an accomplished coach, who uses powerful questions to help her client move forward. She is empathetic without being soft, she is strong without being tough. She is also adept at listening for changes in energy levels, and celebrating when she hears a positive change. Adept at using imagery to help reframe perspectives, and visualisation to create positive goals, she skillfully guides her client to the end goal. I highly recommend her services.
