What do clients say about Paula?
Paula is an excellent source of wisdom, support, and objective insight. I have learned more about myself in the 2 months we have worked together than the past 2 years combined! Paula actively listens and engages her clients through grounding exercises and thought-provoking questions. What I appreciate most is that she always ends the conversation with a call to action and follows up with a summary of the session. This encourages growth in her clients and empowers them to take a journey of self-discovery. I have appreciated my time with Paula and highly recommend others to her!
I didn’t know what to expect when I started with Health coaching with Paula. I came into it in the thick of studying for a difficult professional exam. I wasn’t consciously aware of how much it weighed on my identity, but I knew it was a source of stress in my life. Many of our conversations were about the exam, and I found a lot of perspective in our discussions that helped me shift my perspective towards the exam and reduce much of the stress. It didn’t change the fact that I still had much studying to do. However, Paula was able to help me connect how studying mirrored many other past endeavors in my life and allowed me to take life lessons from those and apply them to this challenge. It has been extremely helpful for me and I would recommend Paula to anyone else who is looking for a health coach whatever their background may be.
