“Rita has greatly impacted my life! Working with Rita on the Energy Leadership Index Assessment was a life-changing journey for me. In our work together, Rita has helped me gain insights into the energy blocks holding me back in my personal and professional life. She assisted me in creating a pathway to my goals and success. In the few months I worked with Rita, I have found purpose and passion for my business and personal relationships. I am so energetic, happy and enthusiastic about everything. I have tangible goals and effective ways clearly set out on achieving them. Rita has helped me to become a more powerful, effective, and productive leader in my professional and personal life. I am eternally grateful to Rita for impacting my life so powerfully, without judgment, now I finally can live, love, work and play passionately achieving desired results.”

“I approached Rita when I felt really stuck in my job – I felt like I’d lost focus and drive but wasn’t sure if the issue lay with the job or if it was something within me that was preventing me from enjoying the role. I was coached by Rita both online and over skype, and I’ve lost count of the number of ‘a-ha’ moments I had during our sessions. Her insightful questions really opened my eyes in terms of why I had been thinking and behaving in certain ways, and I was so surprised when she made me realise how deep rooted my beliefs were and how my much my current actions were linked to my past. I came away with so much more than I ever believed, and felt that I could move forward with so much more awareness of how best to tackle any challenges ahead.”

“Being coached by Rita was one-of-a-kind experience for me. She is not just listening, she is in my head. She is not just observing, she deeply understands. Given her professional background and experience in life as well as her genuine passion for coaching, I found Rita to be uniquely qualified to help me assess the impact of my own personality both in my personal life and at work. She helped me place my professional ambitions in the context of both my strengths and weaknesses. Through our extremely intense conversations, I have achieved a crystal-clear view on my true goals. Her coaching guided me through a series of important decisions by helping me articulate a variety feelings, emotions and desires, eventually arriving at a step-by-step plan to further develop towards my goals, with more awareness, focus and a sense of fulfillment. Looking back, I can wholeheartedly recommend Rita to anybody considering coaching for variety of aspects in both their professional and private lives.”

“After years of pushing myself too hard, I was forced to stop and try to find new ways to deal with my stress. I took a break from work, got my energy back, but soon the same stress was there. I felt I needed some help, but I didn’t know what that would be. 2017 turned out to be a great year! In January I started my work with Rita. She helped me to see why I kept going back to feeling stressed and overwhelmed. With Rita’s help I finally understood what is most important in my life. With Rita’s technique I now help myself to find the balance that was missing. Today I see when stress is about to take over. I have a choice, and I choose Rita’s tools to bring me back to where I feel better, about myself and people around me. I didn’t know much about coaching before my experience with Rita. And still its difficult to explain what it is. But I wish everybody could get a chance to find out. Because this has given me a lifetime opportunity to feel happier, more hopeful, kinder and more optimistic. It is not only Rita’s technique that works so well, but also the person she is. So warm and easy to get to know. So personal and caring, at the same time so professional. I feel she has had my back through a difficult time. Yet a time that has given me a whole new perspective on my life.”

“Rita is an outstanding coach who listens and captures the essence of each session. She provides a bespoke service where she is deeply engaged and very personal. She is thoughtful, intelligent and gentle yet focused on unlocking the core of the matter, and she has the ability to string numerous conversations together creating a purposeful whole. I have been both challenged and encouraged on my career path, work in general, and my personal life. The work we have done has secured lasting transformational growth right from the onset, and I have achieved (and continue to work towards) a number of goals. The coaching sessions I had with Rita provided many ‘eye and heart opening moments’ and an improved platform from which I will continue to grow. I can highly recommend Rita – she is a first class coach.”

“I had the privilege of having Rita as a coach; she helped me to discover my true potential, and motivated me to pursue my passion and feel confident about my deepest career aspirations. With her heart, mind and soul, Rita has always provided generous and constructive feedback. She inspires and motivates throughout each step of the coaching process. Thanks to her, I now think differently and have put some of my biggest fears behind me. She is caring and has brought out the best in me. I would recommend Rita to anyone who wants to grow both personally and professionally. This journey was the best thing I could have done for myself! I cannot thank her enough for everything she has brought to me!”

“Rita is an extremely powerful and amazing woman who has made me see things that, quite frankly, could have taken me years to see. I learned so much about myself in the first few sessions we had together, I continue to learn more each week, to strategise effectively, show up more powerfully and I am looking forward to continuing this exciting journey. Rita is intelligent, insightful, warm, a great listener, she understands and is 100% present during our sessions. She is extremely kind and tactful in helping me discover myself, my energy levels and how to manoeuvre myself through challenging situations. She has completely changed my life, and I am excited about the continued learning and growing.”
