When moving to the UK in 2017, I decided to blend my knowledge as a Physiologist with coaching skills, in order to help people make sustainable lifestyle changes. My aim was to offer a direction for others to be able to adopt healthier and happier lifestyles in a way that suited their specific individual circumstances.
After working in different fields as a health coach, I decided to direct my expertise on supporting and advising people facing Non-Hodgkin cancer diagnosis and treatment since I was aware of the different stages we go through when having this cancer diagnosis, facing the treatment, or planning our lives after finishing treatment. I know what it is like to deal with the emotional challenges and uncertainties of this new situation when suddenly we find ourselves feeling that the word "future" doesn’t make sense and no longer exists in our vocabulary.
My personal experience, as well as the experience of cancer peers and many other people that I have supported, allow me to implement strategies to help Non-Hodgkin cancer patients to manage their diagnosis, their treatment, and cancer recovery in a healthy way, considering the different aspects of their lives.
My knowledge in Physiology, together with my personal cancer journey and studies in Health Coaching, provide me with the understanding and experience needed to tailor a cancer coaching plan that can meet the needs of each of my clients, so they can lead rich and balanced lives, go through the treatment in the best physical and emotional state and live a fulfilling life.
My own experiences of the disease and the challenges with family’s and friend’s health, have also enabled me to develop the understanding and the compassion needed to fully relate to clients who are struggling with cancer related issues, thus allowing me to help them adopt and sustain new healthy strategies.
