Testimonials

‘The coaching session with Valbona gave me the opportunity to explore what I have to do in order to eliminate a limiting belief I am holding. Valbona was open and honest and I really enjoyed the mindfulness start of the session that helped me to focus. Also the fact that she was connecting me with my success in the past. Thanks a lot Valbona and I wish you all the best.’

‘I found Valbona incredibly holding, empathic, warm, yet boundaries. She begun each session with mindfulness practice. Whilst I am familiar with mindfulness, Valbona’s tone of voice, including her pace was  deeply comforting.

My goal in coaching was to enhance my self-esteem as over the course of academic training (and as a PhD student), I have encountered various obstacles that have made me wonder whether I am capable of fulfilling my dreams. This self-doubt has transpired to academic proscination.  Valbona’s collaborative approach helped me identify useful techniques and strategies, including self affirming statements in helping me achieve my goal.  By the end of each of session, we would go over what was discussed and action points. These action points were reviewed in the proceeding session, thus there was a nice flow across our sessions.  

Thanks to Valbona my self-confidence has improved, which in turn provided me with the strength to complete my academic assignments.  I would like to thank Valbona for her patience and professionalism’.

‘Coaching with Valbona has helped me identify my fear of failure and how that in itself has served as a hindrance in going forth towards achieving my goals. I have also come to understand the process which I must follow in order to increase the probability of fulfilling my ambition.  My awareness of time management and allocation of resources towards my goal has taken priority and now there is a clear action plan that I can follow in order to achieve best results.  Coaching has also helped me highlight and reinforce belief in my existing skills some of which I had discarded or long forgotten that they are still within my possession but just needed a bit of polishing and a jump start towards progress in the right direction’.

Valbona has a very pleasant demeanour and it worked well for me from a rapport building perspective. I distinctly remember starting one of the initial sessions by taking 10 deep breaths and it helped me focus on what I wanted to gain from the sessions.  Valbona has helped me clear my thoughts on how to work towards the goal of becoming a keynote speaker for an upcoming seminar while gently nudging me to put the game plan together.  Though initially I was over ambitious, being a good coach, she let me learn how to create a feasible pace on my own. At every stage, Valbona encouraged me to keep going with the plans. This meant that I was self motivated to fulfil the commitment I gave her. Its been a real pleasure to have Valbona as my coach and I wish her all the best with her onward journey.’
