About Me & How I Work
There is much talk today about the importance of emotional intelligence or EQ (Emotional Quotient). More and more, people are coming to acknowledge the direct impact of a well developed EQ on our collaboration skills (soft skills) and professional performance. I’d like to say that this holds true, just as much, to our personal life, if not more so.
Historically, our social and formal education give very little space for emotional intelligence to develop. And with this hindered development we go on and entangle ourselves in an array of miscommunications and misperceptions. Co-creating unproductive (uncollaborative) relationships at home, at school, at work (... and with ourselves).
The emotional domain is a big taboo. We are generally scared and anxious to deal with it. We fear exposure, we fear collapse, we fear the very things we carry within. Clueless.
We live under the assumption that, whatever the emotional disposition, there is not much to be done unless it becomes chronic.
This is the paradigm that my work with emotional fitness training wants to break.
There is much to be done long before it gets chronic.
And it can be simple and effective, like learning to walk, speak or ride a bike. Emotional fitness gives us balance, strength and vitality for life.
Emotions are natural, real, and integral part of our system. Not a black box we need to cope with or pretend it's not there. The emotional domain is complex and fascinating. To become acquainted with it is to develop a skill that stands second to none in enabling wellness. Wellness for ourselves and for the environment around us.
My work with emotional fitness training has developed from practice. It is a blend of techniques designed to boost emotional development through a systemic and phenomenological approach. It is there to assist our emotional disposition (literacy) to expand and mature in a non-invasive and respectful way.
Emotional fitness training can support people in highly demanding environments to keep fit and prevent injury. It can also help people recover from debilitating incidents (stress, shock, conflict, trauma, loss, lack of self-worth and meaning...) and move on to find new ways of relationship (work, peers, partners, parents, children/adolescents, family, friends...).
It is suitable for anyone wishing to get on track in the emotional domain, and can go side-by-side with other processes you might be undergoing.
I offer one-on-one (personal training) as well as group sessions and workshops.
I deeply believe in the potential of emotional intelligence/EQ. Not as a one-solves-all solution, but in the notion that it is an asset to life. To be emotionally fit (or fitter) is a win-win in the most classical term. We feel better, we understand better, we express better, we contribute to a better environment. It adds value to life within and without.
