2015 was an important year for me – it’s when I started my path towards becoming a family mediator. I had been a communications and multiculturalism consultant and trainer for over 16 years at the time, so discovering the worlds of sociology, decision-making, and psychology was what changed my own life and career path.
Being a mother to my children is what I call a sine qua non condition for my work. It would be impossible to be a family mediator and a vocational counselor (especially when working with pre-teens and teens) if I hadn’t had my own experience as a mother.
To have time for my family, to have time to walk, cook, write and read, and not feel a week has passed where hours of work were so crammed in my schedule that I wasn’t able to dedicate at least 30% of my active time to my family.
To help other people make decisions from a space of clarity and certainty, rather than fear and uncertainty – especially related to their work or family.
The greatest satisfaction in life comes from being able to contribute to others’ well-being.
Many women find it hard to access the same level of contribution they have as mothers, in their own family, within an organization. Many women live with a huge internal conflict regarding their contribution and self-work, which deprives them from fully enjoying both work and family.
