I'm Allegra, The Thought and Action Coach. I help driven women slow down so that they can do their greatest work.
From the outside, T had experienced a lot of success, both in life and in work. Under the surface, though, she was feeling uncertain about the professional space she had carved out for herself and was ready to start going down a different, more compelling and personally inspired path. She had a Big, Scary Idea that was equal parts exciting and paralyzing. She kept coming up with questions that she couldn’t find answers to and felt some fear around moving forward in the way that she wanted.
My role as a coach in her life was to create a space where she could decompress, calm down, and notice how her overwhelm and confusion was temporary and telling her nothing about the truth of her journey. She stopped sleeping next to her phone and carved out time for herself in this morning to reflect and get grounded. From this centered place she was able to clearly see next steps and answers to the questions she was stuck on.
Our work together helped T see that she was feeling pulled in so many different directions only because of thoughts of what she should be doing instead of what she really wanted to do. As a result, she felt more centered and confident, revitalized with energy and a new sense of purpose.
J is a small business owner, creative, and busy mother and wife. While professionally very successful, when J and I met she had started to realize that there had to be more to life. Despite "having it all"... it still felt like she was missing something and that there “had to be a better way”! She was Overfilled and Unfulfilled: having a hard time finding space for herself, constantly feeling like she was giving to others (clients, kids, dogs, house, husband, family, etc), and not taking time for herself.
Our work together became about helping J rediscover and trust that centered space within herself and actively creating more of what she wanted and less of what she didn’t want. She started taking action on a creative project she'd been putting on the back burner for a long time. As a result of committing to HERSELF and saying “no” to those things which drained her of energy, J was able to find a part of herself that she had lost touch with for many years.
K and I started working together not long after a big relocation. She was struggling with reclaiming her own identity in a new place while also handling the needs of her family. Our work together focused on separating out her feelings from her thoughts, focusing on the power of self-reflection and taking small actions towards reestablishing her life in a new place.
As a result of our work, K gained a new and empowered understanding of her own thinking, reconnected with a deeper connection to her inner strength, and started to tap into some exciting ideas about what she wanted to create next in her life. Life became EASIER as K started to rediscover herself in her new town.
