A while ago, the Guardian, a UK newspaper, published an article (Is mindfulness making us ill?) with a surprising verdict: mindfulness is not helpful to everyone and for some, can...Read more

One of my clients, who I have been working with for quite a while now, wrote: 'The other thing I wanted to talk about was your fantastic newsletter - I really did like the topic.

Have you noticed that tips 6 and 7 were missing from Part 1? There is a good reason for that. So far I have shared 5 essential tips on how you can measure your personal success against what others expect you to be, to have or to achieve (according to their own views on what success is, of course). However, tips 6 and 7 may require your special attention and this is why...Read more
‘How to manage my time properly is what I want to explore in my coaching session today’ – said one of my clients. Self-reflecting on the flow of time she realised that it was far from nice to catch herself thinking about unfinished work and a deadline approaching while spending what meant to be a relaxing weekend with her family. The symptoms included worrying, lack of focus, inability to be present and...Read more

If NO is the answer that shows up straight away, keep on reading so you can identify what stops you most from being present and from living your life consciously and mindfully as it is unfolding.

The other day my son curiously peeked into the room where I was coaching a client via Skype, quietly closed the door and left. He has asked me about coaching before and I have always answered his rather general questions. I will need to talk to him again about staying away from my office when I work, I thought. After my last coaching session I went upstairs only to be immediately...Read more

Perhaps you have been sensing it in yourself, too, and thinking of taking steps to create something more meaningful, more exciting and more authentic in your life? A lot of people choose to slow down these days, leaving jobs they were not happy with, moving houses,...Read more
- Thanks to my coaching sessions with Kasia I learned how much I was not only constantly judging myself but also neglecting my own needs, making others responsible for my unhappiness. I'd claim I had known the theory of being responsible for my own happiness but actually feeling it and living by it is a whole different matter. Thanks to Kasia, Continue Reading
- The 90-day Better Communication and Deep Dive Personal Transformation Coaching and Training Program took me steadily through a series of worksheets which tackled various points I have chosen, and were well balanced between work issues and life issues (which were probably all the same issues anyway!) and brought me a point of self-awareness. The coaching sessions brought me to an awareness Continue Reading
- Kasia is a fabulous facilitator who empowers all the group to speak honestly and openly and as a consequence we all seem to bond and offer positive support and reinforcement - Anna, UCLan
