Coaching Programs

How I Work

Program Structure

I offer 4-6 month coaching programs, depending on your needs, challenges and goals. 4 months is the minimum because this gives us enough time to go deeper and get solid results. 

Before we start working together, after an initial discovery call, I send you an intake form with questions where you outline your goals and how you will know if you are receiving value from working with me. Based on this and our chat, your goals will act as the foundation of our work together and I will create a tailored program especially for you. We will work towards achieving them but my approach is also quite organic and intuitive during the sessions, so that there is space for other things to also come up.

My Methodologies

When working with my clients I address Mind, Body and Spirit using a combination of the following methodologies:

Positive Psychology 

Positive psychology is a scientific approach to studying human thoughts, feelings, and behavior with a focus on strengths instead of weakness, building the good in life instead of repairing the bad. As a field, positive psychology focuses on topics like character strengths, optimism, life satisfaction, happiness, well-being, gratitude,  self-compassion self-esteem and self-confidence, hope, and elevation.

 

These topics are integrated in my coaching approach using evidence based interventions in order to help you flourish and live you best life.

EFT (Tapping)

EFT focuses on the relationship between thoughts, emotions, sensations, and behaviors, and known bioenergy systems (such as meridians and the biofield). In my coaching approach I integrate EFT (otherwise known as tapping), to release trapped energy and trauma from the body and reprogram subsequent limiting beliefs.

Inner Child Healing

No matter how big or small, all of us experienced some kind of trauma as children. These traumas could vary from having your favorite stuffed toy thrown in the trash, to being abandoned by your best childhood friend, to being physically or emotionally abused by your parents.

 

Inner child work is a vital component of inner work because it reconnects us with a wounded element of ourselves: the child within. You will discover the root cause of some of your fears, insecurities and limiting beliefs, as well as your childhood needs that were never met and we will be able to identify and heal them together. 

Mindset Coaching

Mindset coaching is dedicated to rewiring an individual's mindset, allowing them to be the very best version of themselves and to unlock their full potential. Our thoughts create our reality and are at the forefront of how we respond to life, our stress levels, our perception of what's possible and can either limit us or enable us to flourish. The choice is ours. 

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the practice of maintaining a nonjudgmental state of heightened or complete awareness of one’s thoughts, emotions, or experiences on a moment-to-moment basis. This awareness lays the foundation for deep transformation to occur, as only what we are aware of; can we change. 

 

Through various evidence-based exercises I help my clients cultivate a mindful approach to life so they are in the driver's seat of how they respond to various situations and they have the clarity to shift their focus away from things that do not serve them. 

Shadow Work

Shadow work is the practice of reintegrating the rejected or "lost" aspects of self. We tend to reject parts of ourselves that we are not proud of or that society judges. This results in what is called "psychological incongruence" which causes stress and restlessness.

 

In order to heal and have a feeling of being "whole", we need to make these once-rejected versions of self feel heard, seen, accepted, and loved so we can finally reintegrate them.

Working with Cassandra for over a year has been one of (if not THE) best gifts I have given myself. The biggest takeaway is that there is always room to grow. Cassandra would guide me to realise that understanding myself, getting in touch with my feelings, finding the courage to express myself, is an ongoing journey full of joy.
