Our environment changes all the time and so do we. To a degree, change is a choice. We can choose to use inherent skills and attitudes, which make us more resilient: this includes awareness, curiosity, emotion regulation, kindness, courage, wisdom, and the willingness to do the things, which really matter to us. And the process of thinking and doing things differently quite literally changes our minds
by 'rewiring' our neural pathways - an effect known as neuroplasticity.
Welcome, I am Petra
Personal & Professional Development Coach and Mind Skill Mentor
I am an ICF trained Coach, Certified Mindfulness Practitioner, ACT* practitioner, veterinary radiologist and compassionate fellow human with a long-standing interest in positive psychology and science of wellbeing. I offer coaching and mentoring for individuals from veterinary and other high-stress professions who wish to:
+ bring their best self into work and life.
+ enhance their non-technical professional skills, performance and wellbeing.
+ gain clarity about what is important to them and constructively work with their challenges.
+ become more resilient through greater awareness and application of helpful mind skills and behaviours.
+ switch off autopilot, embrace live and do what is important to them, even if this seems difficult.
+ improve their relationship with themselves, others and the world they live in.
+ continue to grow and learn.
It is my firm belief that we carry the ability to deal with all our challenges already inside us. I offer a supportive, non-judgmental and safe environment in which you can (re)connect with your own inherent skills and resilience, allowing access to wiser and more flexible ways to deal with the inevitable ups and downs in life.
*Acceptance and Commitment Training
'Petra has been an incredible coach throughout our sessions, her gentle approach and reflective style gave me time to think and process tough questions and make some truly break- through realisations. She helped me navigate work issues and some more deep seated personal challenges, as well as giving me techniques and strategies that I can take forward myself and apply to newly arising situations. It was an emotional journey, but one I am truly grateful for. I would highly recommend Petra as coach, whatever your hopes/goals may be.'
