"Andrea is truly a good coach. She is very comfortable giving me time and space to talk things through without hurrying me along. There is no fear of quiet moments during the call, and I found that this really helped me explore things a little deeper.
She asks questions from a space of curiosity and compassion. I never felt judged by her, and she did not spend her energy on trying to push solutions or ideas on me. She allowed me to find my own way to my answers, but she was also willing to ask the challenging questions to get me to think about new possibilities or new perspectives. This balance was very powerful for me because it introduced new options into my thinking to expand my horizons (and get me out of my own self-created mind ruts -- something I really, really need!), but there was never any pressure to accept or embrace anything that did not feel true for me.
She always interacted with me from a space of true professionalism. She was always on time and prepared for appointments, she created a quiet space for our time together (without outside interruptions during the calls), and she always followed up after each call with beautiful emails that contained helpful summaries of the things discussed and of the action items I had committed to."
