Emotional Intelligence & Mindfulness Coach

What is Emotional Intelligence?

Social + Emotional Intelligence is a form of intelligence that drives our success in work and in life and in our relationships with others. 

Social and emotional intelligence is about being aware of ourselves and others, in the moment, and using that awareness to manage ourselves (our behavior, our responses to stressful or challenging situations), and manage our relationships with others.

The Social + Emotional Intelligence Profile (SEIP)®

The Social + Emotional Intelligence Profile (SEIP)® is the most comprehensive social and emotional intelligence assessment instrument on the market today, measuring 26 distinct social and emotional intelligence competencies.

Now people can instantly see their strengths and potential vulnerabilities when it comes to social and emotional intelligence.

What kind of emotions does this trigger?

Are you a pie of these emotions?

Is your life dull and grey or colourful and cheerful?

Self-awareness and social awareness (or a lack thereof) can either help or hinder your ability to live a rich and vibrant life. Doing so doesn’t mean avoiding difficult emotions or steeping in them for too long. Instead, bringing awareness to what is occurring presently and applying this information helps you become more effective at self-management and relationship management.

Take the Social +Emotional Intelligence Profile (SEIP®) and work with me to deepen your personal and social competencies. Bring a healthy sense of “aliveness” into the relationship you have with yourself and others!

Are you Mindful?

Are you living your life on autopilot? Do you feel like you are in a constant rat race that leaves you feeling stressed out and dissatisfied?

I can help you develop the skills to become more mindful in your daily life so that you are living your life purposefully and with greater ease.

Practicing mindfulness can help you be/become:

  • More intentional
  • More aware of your choices
  • Creative in responding to stress more healthily
  • Curious and cultivate a beginner’s mind when necessary
  • Fully immersed in the present moment
  • Flexible with your perspectives

WHAT I DO

Helping you Unlock your Full Potential

My role as your coach is to assist you in uncovering your inner resourcefulness, resilience, and creativity in the journey from where you are to where you want to be.

You may be looking to be more successful, become healthier, and improve your relationships.

Or perhaps, you would like to handle transitions with greater ease, want to get unstuck, achieve a big goal, or sharpen your communication skills.

Whatever results you are seeking, I am confident that you already know the answers even if they don’t seem apparent yet.

My job is to help you unearth those answers through the dynamic process of inquiry and additional coaching tools and techniques. The grand result is that you follow the integrity of your heart while taking practical steps to achieve higher life satisfaction.

I can help you unlock your full potential through my emotional intelligence and mindfulness coaching sessions and bring about a transformational change!

 

Testimonials

In 2019, I had travelled to the U.S. to visit my son. Back home, my grandson was sick, and I was anxious about him.

I was feeling overwhelmed, and it is at this time, I contacted Lourdes. Lourdes is very compassionate, approachable and empathetic.

She always makes you feel heard and accepted. Speaking to her gave me solace.

She helped me stay focused on the present, and through her coaching, I learned the skills to handle stress and worry.

She also gave me extra helpful resources that I could use on my own time.
I highly recommended her.

L.F.

Before starting my sessions with Lourdes P., two months ago I was constantly procrastinating and very disorganized.

After a few sessions she taught me the skills I needed to move forward and I applied them right away.

I feel like I have a new mindset and more positive energy to get things done!

Thank you so much!

K.R.

When you think of a coach, it is mostly related to sports or fitness. What about a coach for your career?

Who is guiding you to get on the right path? When I was looking for work and couldn’t decide between a business or going permanent at another job, Lourdes help me focus on 1 task at a time.

She did an initial program to understand who I was and what I wanted to do.

I appreciate she putting the focus back into what I wanted to pursue.

Thanks.

What I learned from my first solo road trip to Muskoka

I choose to share my personal stories because I value authentic, genuine connection, and I believe we are all connected. I hope that they are helpful to someone or many out there who feel isolated and especially to those who feel the pressure to show up well put together all the time.
