ARE YOU READY
"Kirsten Cottone introduces you to your truest self. From that place, change becomes possible."
2016 Australian of the Year Nominee
With mental health concerns at an all time high right now, I've set up a number of offerings to help alleviate some of the issues we are facing around Covid-19. Please follow the link below to learn more.
Do you ever feel overwhelmed, lacking in confidence or stuck in a rut?
You're not alone. Between the pressures of everyday life and perceptions of how it all "should be", many of us are just not happy! As women, these disruptors can affect any of us, at any time:
At A Cross-Roads
Not Being Heard
Lost Your Mojo
But, these are really just the symptoms. The core problem is that "you" have been buried under all that is not you!
Hi, I'm Kirsten Cottone and I help individuals and organisations make positive change.
As an academic and creative, I use evidence-based tools from positive psychology, neuroscience and creative coaching, to deliver a process of change that really works.
I can help you get your mojo back, so that you once again feel confident in who you are, clear about your next steps and excited about your life!
WANT A SNEAK PEAK?
If this resonates, but you're sitting on the fence, how about an introductory strengths-analysis session where we can get to know each other better?
Why strengths? Because the science of positive psychology tells us that knowing and using your top five strengths increases happiness and wellbeing. Whether you want to clarify your purpose, build stronger relationships or increase confidence, it always starts with your strengths.
If you're fed up with your current situation, then this is the easiest way to take some no-risk action today! Let's go beyond your hunches and use evidence-based tools, so that you can start changing your life for the better. Let's face it, this really is one of those offers where you have nothing to lose. I'll see you soon.
WHAT TO EXPECT
I often take on clients who have been to psychologists and life coaches, without success. Yet when they work with me, they soon report a shift in their way of being in the world. Here's why:
Unlike traditional psychology which focuses on what is wrong with you, positive psychology focuses on your strengths; what is working well (even if the answer feels like "nothing" at the moment). My coaching style uses an appreciative enquiry approach.
Neuroscience tells us that our mind and body are intimately connected. Yet, most talking therapies stay in the head.....sometimes for years. I offer an experiential approach, which also involves the body and heart, so clients walk out of the room feeling profoundly different. From there, it is much harder to slip back into old habits.
I passionately believe we all possess creative insights - those flashes of genius - that hold the answers for our next steps. I will help you gain access to these brain zones, but you are the expert on what we find.
To translate all of that into practical outcomes, here are some things you might experience from a session with me:
~ Being heard at the deepest level.
~ Full engagement with your whole being.
~ Insightful perceptions that you won't have noticed about yourself or your workplace before.
~ Fun, because if it's really hard work, it will take longer to stick.
~ Dissolving of blocks.
~ Speedy, yet lasting results.
