What I do:
I show highly sensitive women who have lost their identity to their career or family, how to rediscover who they really are and live the life of their dreams by protecting their energy and prioritizing themselves without guilt.
Highly Sensitive People and Empaths have the tendency to absorb other people’s emotions and try to fix everyone’s problems, to the point they forget about their own needs and aspirations.
As an Empath, I have a deep understanding of how challenging it can feel to prioritize yourself over others. When you feel obligated to do certain things, what people want you to do, you lose track of what you truly want and you start experiencing anxiety. The main feature of highly sensitive people and Empaths is their intuition and when they’re feeling stressed or anxious, their intuition gets crushed. Without intuition it feels like being lost because you no longer have a compass to navigate through life.
I know, because I was there myself just a few years ago. But then I discovered coaching and its powerful force which propelled me to where I’m now. Highly sensitive people feel different from others, they feel like outsiders and then they start to think there must be something wrong with them. But it’s OK to be different!
The problem is that if you don’t fully believe in yourself and in your abilities you can’t get where you want to be. Your lack of self-belief is preventing you from living your best life. In fact it’s even stopping you in your tracks and it’s not allowing you to think outside the box you put yourself in.
Let me help you. This will be a two fold journey:
Firstly, if you can dream it, you can achieve it, but you have to believe in yourself and take action. Confidence will come by doing things and seeing them through. I will support you every step of the way and I will coach you to reach that big dream, whichever it may be for you, because I’ll help you break it down into small achievable steps.
Secondly, you’ll have to go beyond your limits, those limits you created yourself, you inherited from your parents or society planted in your head. These self-limiting beliefs are what keep you stuck. You can free yourself from these boundaries and live a truly fulfilling life. Nothing happens in the comfort zone and uncovering your true potential is not as scary as it may seem. It can actually be fun, and it’ll be healing. When you know who you are, you can be who you want to be.
What you can expect:
Each session will focus on you and what you want to achieve. You’ll uncover which fears and limiting beliefs are holding you back from living the life you dream of. You’ll discover your core values and how to live in alignment with your beliefs, so you can attract everything you desire into your life with ease. You’ll get clarity and focus, so you can make the best decisions for yourself with confidence. You’ll find your worth and the courage to go after what you want without second guessing yourself all the time. You’ll break through your own blocks and find fulfilment by taking action, one step at a time. You’ll stop listening to what people tell you should do, and you’ll trust your intuition. You’ll have healthier barriers with people and you’ll become your own best friend.
What is Coaching?
Coaching is a collaborative partnership where the client is the expert in their life and the coach is the expert in the coaching techniques. In coaching, the client will explore their own issues and options, the focus of the sessions is to take the client from where they are now to where they want to be. The coach asks powerful questions to enable the client to find their own solution to the issue they are facing.
What is an Empath?
An Empath is a highly sensitive person (HSP) with a so-called “hyperactive mirror neuron system”, this is why they are high on the empathy scale. Empaths feel everything deeply and so they often get overwhelmed by too much stimulation like loud noises, strong lights or crowded places. While growing up they were often labelled as “over sensitive”, “too dramatic” or even “weak”. If they aren’t self-aware, they’ll absorb other people’s emotions into their bodies, and this can really affect their wellbeing.
“Before working with Francesca, I was thinking too far ahead into the future instead of staying in the NOW. The “what ifs” and the planning for multiple eventualities that I didn’t even know would happen got to be overwhelming. As an HSP I tend to be hypervigilant and overthinking to make sure that everything goes well for everyone. Within just a few weeks of being coached by Francesca, I learned to slow down and pay attention to my thoughts. Now I ask myself, “Is this the reality of the situation NOW or are you planning for a possibility?” When it’s the latter, I take a deep breath and let it go, bringing my focus back to the tasks currently and truly at hand.
I’m so much less stressed and I’m even sleeping better as I’m not waking up with so many racing thoughts. Working with Francesca has helped me to channel my energy where it belongs. In the daytime and most importantly, in the present – allowing me to slow down, breathe, take one thing at a time, and sleep so much better at night. If you’re wondering if Francesca is worth working with, stop wondering and make an appointment! Francesca is kind, compassionate, highly skilled, and attentive. I can say that as a coach, Francesca is in the major leagues!” Kim L. USA
