Coaching FAQ
What is coaching?

Internacional Coaching Federiation defines coaching as meeting with clients (coaches) in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
 Therefore, a coach can be useful, if you want to improve any interpersonal skill, also when you want to improve your health or physical condition. The coach in fact doesn’t need to be an expert in the area that the coachee wants to improve because the coachee is considered  the best specialist, an expert on his life, who  knows which solution works best for him, but sometimes is not able to discover it. This is when he might use the help of coach to assist him in his travel.
Coaching is a very individual process, adapted to the rhythm of each client; however it usually takes no more than few months.
 
What is career coaching?
Career coaching focuses on all aspects related with work and its importance in our lives.

Why does coaching work?

ABOUT ME
I first learned about coaching while attending a Silva course at the age of thirteen.
Due to my deep interest in psychology, later on I took up studies in this field at the University of Gdansk (Poland).
After graduation, I furthered my career at human resources departments in Barcelona, (where I gained practical skills in the field while analyzing different kinds of personalities, their goals and possible ways of reaching them. Apart from my regular position, I also took up internships at a center for immigrants, so as to make my work experience as a coach more versatile and therefore – effective). 
I hold a masters degree in coaching, issued by the Instituto Europeo de Coaching (Certified by ASESCO-Spanish Coaching Association) and a professional degree/certificate in NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) awarded by the Institut Gestalt Barcelona.
If in doubt about coaching, feel free to contact me and I’ll be more than happy to attend you in your personal development

I´m an author ofa book: "Learning Happiness" ("Nauka szczęścia").
