Our founder and director, Ignaty Dyakov-Richmond has made a career shift since late 2016 and become a life coach, specialising in lifestyle changes and rediscovery of oneself after major illnesses.
Here's what Ignaty offers in his own words:
Looking for a more balanced, healthier lifestyle? Pondering a career change? Starting a business? Getting back to life after a major illness?
Life coaching isn't counseling, nor is it psychotherapy.
View it the same way as coaching in sports, when an experienced professional coach, who's been there himself, helps sportsmen and women to get the best out of themselves, and find the most effective ways to succeed.
Now, success isn't necessarily a financial thing. In fact, measuring everything in monetary terms might limit your life considerably. What we can do together is define what success is for you and only for you. Then how to get there in the way you find comfortable. And how to enjoy your life in the process. Life is for living, and no one really knows how long he or she will live for, so every moment should be noticed and treasured.
I became a life coach after a major illness, when an entrepreneur, public speaker, trainer, and writer, I had to readjust to my new reality. It's taken a few years and is an ongoing process, but I'm happy to share my experience and facilitate and guide your changes.
