As a mid-career lawyer working in human rights and based in Turkey, I was recommended Patrycja’s coaching at a time when I was feeling a strong urge for change both personally and professionally but was unclear on how to go about it. I was initially a bit skeptical about coaching in general, but given Patrycja’s excellent credentials and vast experience in the field of human rights I knew that if I were to try it, she would be the right person to help me navigate this life transition. I had not guessed at the time how much I would be able to achieve thanks to her generous support, and early on in the process I became a strong believer in the impact that coaching can have. Through insightful questions, helpful tools and resources, and genuine care for me and our work together, Patrycja helped me as I defined my goals, priorities and next steps in a way that truly aligns with my values. She is an excellent listener with great attention to what is being said but also unsaid, and through our conversations I often challenged myself to think more creatively. I also very much appreciated her taking special note of context-specific challenges I was facing and integrating them in our sessions and beyond. The way she approached our time together was empowering in every sense as she both supported me in reaching and implementing some difficult decisions and equipped me with the experience and methods which I can repeat in other situations. Thanks to my work with Patrycja, I feel confident in my decisions and I have clear goals and better control over how I spend my time. Most importantly, I’ve made great progress in balancing the personal and professional – something I had been struggling with alone for many years. I cannot recommend her enough.
