I began writing this review numerous times, but it never got beyond the first 1-2 lines. No matter what came out on paper, it was never adequate to describe what I experienced the last years I have been working with Vivian towards a goal which at the time, seemed impossible but now it has expanded beyond my imagination! Some experiences cannot be fully described via words, as vital aspects of them might be left out, painting thus, an unfair picture and the work we have done with Vivian is one of these experiences.
Back then my life was a total mess, I was wandering with no destination, aimlessly, literally wasting my time, as well as, this precious gift I was given: my life. Although I recognized the need to do something for my situation, I hesitated to make a move, because deep inside of me I believed that it was worthless… I was worthless. Misery had become a good friend of mine and I was busy building my own personal drama and living in it in a glorious way! Looking back from where I stand now…. I was really good at it! At that time, the only action I could perform was to book a session with Vivian and show up… I was very-very broken and confused.
After seeing Vivian for 6 months, I started to change and so did everything & everyone else around me. I approached our cooperation with an open mind and will to change… an attitude which you cannot not succeed with! Our cooperation evolved through various phases, just like a fine red wine.
We have dealt with personal issues, family issues, professional issues, spirituality issues and many-many more and when I decided to seek Life Coaching training myself, she was there to support me, with ideas, experience and knowledge. I am deeply impressed until today from the wide spectrum of subjects she is capable of dealing with successfully and with a high standard of performance!
Professionally, when we started I was in a Marketing Manager’s position and now I am the CEO of a manufacturing company with exporting presence in 34 countries and Vivian and I, planned and executed this transition together! Working with a life coach or a therapist, most of the times, the impact of the relationship doesn’t go beyond the point of solving a situation seen as problematic. For those outstanding professionals who stand out of the crowd, it is always something more, because they know that, to really become exceptional, they must “walk their talk” in all aspects and Vivian does exactly that. I gained confidence by observing and receiving her confidence, I learned to think with an open mind by observing her way of thinking. All clients during the sessions, what they primarily do, is to unconsciously model their life coach or therapist. Imagine how vital it is, the model you are modeling, to be an exceptional model!
After a while, my wife also started working with Vivian so we had the chance to work as a family under the same principles and values and this was the wisest decision we ever made and the greater gift to ourselves and to our son who is coming in 2 months! I believe that the birth of this child is the most valuable outcome of this cooperation, and it would not be possible without it for many-many reasons.
I wish everyone has the chance to work with such a skilled professional and loving and caring person as Vivian is. I believe in synchronicity in life and this was a case where the exact time the “student” was ready… the “master” appeared! Thank you for everything Vivian!
