I had never been to a psychiatrist in my whole life and was rather skeptical about being accompanied. I thought I didn’t need it, as I’m rather a positive and resilient person. Well, I was wrong!
I started the coaching sessions with Stéphanie a little before starting the IVF process, to check if I had any psychological blocks that were preventing me from conceiving naturally. Stéphanie immediately put me at ease and gave me the keys to overcome the roller coaster of this journey to motherhood. We started with a cycle of 5 sessions to lay the foundations and work with concrete exercises. After that, I came back to her in a few occasions when I felt things were not going well – and she really helped me feel much better each time.
Talking about these subjects with friends and family is really different from doing it with a specialized professional like Stéphanie. We verbalize, we concretize what worries us rather than letting it eat us from the inside. It’s highly beneficial for the mind – but also as a consequence for the body.
Before wasting your money on books or maternity gadgets, I recommend all women with a pregnancy project to go see Stéphanie to calmly approach the process.
A big thank you Stephanie for your precious help.
After several negative attempts to have a second child, I felt the need to find emotional support to better live the process and get out of this sadness I continuously felt.
Stéphanie was very quick to respond to my 1st contact and this was a very important point at a time when outside help seemed non-existent to us!
I felt that in her eyes, my story, however common for many women, was listened to and was in no way judged. I also felt a lot of benevolence and kindness in her eyes and in her voice during our discussions! The program she proposed was perfectly adapted to my profile and situation, and I felt its benefits much beyond the support for fertility treatments : it helped me “sharpen” the feeling of my emotions, in order to “tame” them and understand them better. It also helped me widen my vision of the moment and open myself to the possibilities to come.
I am really happy I found Stéphanie in this difficult period for me, I highly recommend her!
Stéphanie accompanied me during my IVF process. Devastated by various unsuccessful cycles, I no longer knew if I could or wanted to start over again.
Thanks to her in-depth knowledge of the universe of assisted reproduction, our conversations were concrete and deep. Her support and questions allowed me to find my own answers, to define my expectations and my limits, and to make these treatments much more bearable… I felt less fear and less guilt, which made my “backpack” much lighter to move forward on the path of assisted reproduction.
THANK YOU Stéphanie for your priceless support!
I started coaching sessions with Stephanie because I felt the need, before beginning a protocol of assisted reproduction, to ask myself the right questions and to start a process of emotional support to prepare myself and make the right decisions.
Her support was very enriching for me. It allowed me to progress on this still unknown path, to understand it and to be less afraid of it.
Stephanie was the perfect person to help me move forward on these motherhood and fertility issues. Her experience, but also her kindness and gentleness brought me a lot of serenity.
Thanks to this coaching process, I feel more in tune with my emotions, and more self-confident. It allowed me to realize several things about myself and my relationships with others that I was not aware of. I feel stronger after these 5 sessions, when I was at a time in my life where I had never felt so vulnerable.
I particularly appreciated Stéphanie’s kindness and the fact that she didn’t try to change me, that she adapted to me. She never tried to convince me of anything that was not in line with who I am, and that is something very important to me. She helped me bring to light aspects of my personality that I didn’t know – and I’ve known myself much better ever since.
I met Stéphanie at the end of a long fertility process, which I was finishing as a single woman. By the time I contacted her, I was really demoralised. Then we started our video sessions (I live in France). From the very first session, I really appreciated her availability, her kindness and her indulgence. She also gave me exercises to do between each session which I found very useful and really helped me. She accompanied me every week until the end of the process and in the end, even if I did this journey by myself, I really felt supported. I really recommend you to call on Stéphanie!
I was lucky enough to cross Stephanie’s path when I was in a lot of doubts career wise. Thanks to her wonderful coaching skills, she helped me find back clarity and set a new direction for myself.
Stephanie is very gentle, has wonderful listening skills and will ask you the right questions to guide your journey. I strongly recommend her to anyone who needs support in defining (and getting!) what they want in life.
These coaching sessions helped me a lot: the simple fact of being able to talk about what was happening to me relieved me of an enormous burden. I can now project myself into the future with positivity.
Each session went one step further to articulate my action plan, organize my ideas and thoughts, calm down my emotions and see my situation from a different and more positive perspective.
Talking out loud about everything I felt and was going through, to someone who didn’t know me personally, was the best decision I could make. Writing and reflecting after each session on the topics we talked about was also a big help: having that moment alone with thoughts and feelings is difficult to describe, but I would say it is really powerful. It connects you with your true self, with your “naked” soul.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the time you dedicated to me, and for your energy and patience.
The contact has always been very pleasant, and you have allowed us to express ourselves without ever judging us. You have given us tools to confront these complex moments on an emotional level, which we believe is the most complicated part of the process. Being able to carry out the coaching sessions together also strengthened us as a couple.
Thank you so much for everything!
At a time when I felt misunderstood by the medical profession, I had the chance to meet Stéphanie (from afar since I live in France and we did all our coaching sessions online).
I had been trying to get pregnant for a few years, and this meeting completely changed my way of understanding my fertility process.
Our sessions brought me more self-confidence and serenity and I felt I was really listened to.
The techniques used by Stéphanie allowed me to be more positive in my daily life. Thanks to this “teamwork”, I finally managed to no longer feel guilty for living happy moments with my husband. The difficulties of this long fertility journey are still here, but I experience them in a different way. I am more connected with my body and with my emotions.
Stephanie came highly recommended by a friend at a time in my life where I needed help finding my internal compass, and to get external direction in my life and career. I was not disappointed! Stephanie’s empathy and expertise guided our sessions, each building on the last with amazing reflections and insights. Working with Stephanie gave me the tools, and the confidence to make what I needed to happen actually happen, and I couldn’t have done it without her.
My sessions with Stéphanie helped me order my priorities, reflect on what I wanted and take the time to think (I am an impulsive person). It allowed me to understand what I really wanted to do.
Before the coaching process I had many ideas and aspirations, but nothing was really clear (desire to travel, to change position or even to change profession and sector- but to go where and to do what?). The only thing I was sure of was that I wanted to stay in Barcelona. Coaching helped me organize my thinking.
What helped me the most: the questions that impulsed a profound reflection; the practical exercises; working on my key personal values (independently from the others); looking always a little deeper into myself.
Moving to a new city or country makes you put everything into perspective. I started coaching sessions with Stéphanie one year after my arrival in Barcelona. Moving to Spain initiated a series of changes and questions, particularly on a professional level. In this new life and balance, I was having a hard time finding meaning in my work.
I was asking myself many questions: should I implement a career change? Or should I continue but work in a different way? What should I do?
The coaching sessions helped me have a clearer vision, highlight what was important in my life and make choices in line with my priorities and desires.
Stéphanie showed great listening skills and was able to pinpoint a hidden evidence. Sometimes it only takes one word, or one sentence and everything lights up!
Her approach is benevolent and above all very concrete. Our discussions were rich and effective. After 6 months, I still perceive daily the benefits of this work.
Thank you Stéphanie!
Thanks to her listening skills and excellent advice, Stéphanie help me get conscious of certain mental blocks I had. I absolutely recommend her as a coach.
The coaching sessions with Stéphanie were a very valuable support, both for her accompaniment in the complicated process of IVF (In Vitro Fertilization), as well as on a personal and professional level.
Her calm, serenity, listening skills and good advice make her a great coach, and made these sessions very productive and constructive.
Throughout the process, I was able to identify and name my emotions, express my fears and desires, order my priorities, and set clear goals for myself. The process also helped me know myself better, thanks to interesting tools that Stephanie always proposed at the right time.
I now know that, if I ever have a moment of doubt, fear or confusion, I can call her and she will guide and reassure me with her beautiful energy. Thank you so much Stephanie!
