The coaching helped me get my life on track
After I lived in a women’s shelter for several months due to the family violence that my children and I experienced, we were assigned a government house. When I moved to the house, I realised that I was in charge of my life again, that after all the support from the women’s refugee, now was the time to start building my life again and be a good example for my children. However, I did not know where or how to start.
I knew that I needed to study and get a job, but I did not know what to study or what job I wanted. My self-confidence was very low. I felt alone and adrift. At that time, I received a call from a coach that the women’s refugee referred me to a while ago. That was the signal of my new beginning.
The coach helped me identify my personal and professional goals. First, my coach helped me identify my strengths and weaknesses, second, to identify what I wanted to do in my professional life, I did not know what to do, but I knew what I did not want to do. Third, my coach helped me improve my resume, including my profile, relevant work experience and the skills and abilities to make it look professional. Fourth, my coach gave me effective conversation techniques and problem solving. Fifth, my coach found me a volunteer job in the area where I wanted to work, and I started studying.
Throughout the process, my coach has been patient, empathetic, respectful, witty and always willing to listen to me, guide me and find me better opportunities.
My coach supports me constantly. I feel that my coach is always available to me. If I need the guidance of my coach, I know that my coach will respond in a very short time by phone, text message, email or in a face to face meeting….Thanks to my coach, now I have a part time job, where they understand my situation and are flexible with my work hours. I also work in the area where I wanted to work, my self-confidence has increased and I feel that I am going the right way in my personal and professional life.
I am very grateful for the guidance and continued support of my coach.
