Helena (Jacci) and I met several years ago in Madrid. Recently she was able to come over for a brief visit of 3 days.
I thought, "Oh this is nice, we can get to know each other better and we can visit a couple of people." Little did I know!
We did visit a Spanish speaking lady who felt that her poor English made it difficult for her to progress with work and life. I watched in awe as Helena took exactly one hour to impart the basic principles of English pronounciation through a visual and verbal method she has invented herself. "That," she said, "is all you need to make yourself understood. The vocabulary will follow!" The lady was delighted.
When we arrived home her conversation danced around how people function and she told stories of coaching experiences that brought out the potential she perceived even though covered with many layers of learned defensiveness, fear, judgement and false expectations. As our fascinating conversation progressed into the night I found myself opening up my own can of worms and she eagerly set about working her magic, drawing diagrams (one of which should really be patented, its brilliant! (I call it the Energy Tree)) and bringing me wondrously, via questions not statements, to a life-changing understanding of my own limiting behaviours that drained my energy and thwarted my goals, to seeing clearly how to shed the blockages of assumptions and judgement and replace that with humility and love. So peace...
This very special woman is a warm, intelligent coach of the heart. She's not interested in telling you what to do but in enabling you to see for yourself what you really want to do and be. And when she sees you've got it then she disarmingly lets go so that you can get on with doing and being it. So dignity...
I loved and strongly recommend her unique, generous and deeply intense method of coaching, paying forward her refreshing influence as an inspiration to clarity and freedom.
She left in my house a new energy... that unearthed my complacency and infused me with impatience to apply what I had come to properly understand... that judgement is toxic and makes me ill and that love is alkaline and will make me well.
Perhaps because we are friends she was able to fast-track me to sanity, but listening to her stories I happen to know that she takes as long as she needs and will do whatever it takes... Look her up!
