Masha is incredible - caring, gentle and patient, everything you could ever wish to have encapsulated in the form of a coach and psychologist. From our sessions, I have come to learn and understand a lot about myself and my behavior. And through carefully unpacking the very full carpet of my childhood I have been able to take back control of my life with a much clearer sense of self and purpose.
Working with Masha has assisted me to show up, live bravely, and begin creating a bigger life for myself. As a result of her authentic presence and genuine unwavering support, I have found the courage to shed light on all aspects of myself and consequently, come to greater self-awareness and self-support. Due to Masha’s coaching, I am now living freely and more authentically, and not only can I see my potential, but setting personal and professional challenges for myself has become a norm that I do with curiosity and great excitement.
Masha helped me through a tough career transition in my life, from having a full-time job to freelancing and starting my own business. She empowered me to feel more confident and self-assured. Seeing her has changed my life and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Masha is very kind, knowledgeable, sincere, and friendly. It’s so easy to talk to her. She is an expert in her field and her passion for what she does is evident in the way she connects with others.
I came to Masha with the feeling that I was not getting the best out of my life in a number of areas. From the beginning I sensed we were a good fit and I really appreciate that Masha not only draws on her wealth of knowledge and experience but is also happy to be open and honest in sharing her own personal journey. Every session uncovers new insights for me and Masha gives practical advice and tasks to think about or work on in between our meetings. Having regular sessions definitely keeps me accountable! Already I have achieved outcomes that I never believed were possible for me, and drawing on the success of these achievements is strengthening my belief that I can reach my goals in the other areas of my life that I am still working on. I am grateful to have Masha walking this journey with me
My sessions with Masha have been very helpful. For a long time, I was in a bad space and had internal conflicts, but I was not really sure what the root cause was. All the emotions that I had suppressed for years were all coming to the surface and I did not know how to handle them or even where to start. Masha helped me by giving me tools and homework that has helped me get through the things I struggled with, and she has been a constant support in my journey. There is a huge difference between who I was the first day I sat on her couch, and the person writing this testimonial. My journey to healing and rediscovering myself has been difficult, but because of her support and encouraging words it has been worth it.
I contacted Masha to help me with my job search. I was looking to unlock resources and strength in myself to overcome a very stressful period of my life. Masha helped me see the issues that were blocking me, many of which I didn’t necessarily want to face or handle at that time. But Masha was able to gently encourage me to shift my perspective and transform beliefs and assumptions that were limiting me. The sessions helped me build my self-confidence and self-esteem – so that I was able to perform at the best of my ability in the interviews. She also suggested some hacks and tricks to better organize my time, and I was surprised to see how it improved my time management and released pressure from my shoulders. Six sessions later, I can happily say that I made it – I got the job! So, big THANK YOU to Masha for unlocking those hidden parts of my personality and helping me access my strength and resources. Those sessions were the best investment I ever made
When I first met Masha I was in the worst place possible in all the ways one could imagine. I was physically, emotionally, and mentally overwhelmed. During my time working with her things started to fall into place. I found my voice, and ambition, and realized my value as a dynamic woman. I know this was all due to the effort I put in to do the work, but Masha reminded me of that possibility within me. That is my experience with her - someone who always reminded me of who I am, even when I took things for granted.
Before embarking on a coaching journey, finding a coach that is the right fit is key. This initial conversation is a great way to discover if we are a good match. You get to learn about my approach and I get to hear what you are after. Looking forward to connecting with you!
