Testimonials from some of my coahcing clients:
Tanya McGill Freeman, President and Founder, Digital Sophisticate, LLC, http://digitalsophisticate.com/
“Herdis Pala is an absolutely amazing coach, specializing in really getting to the core of what one’s feelings and beliefs are to see what lies under the surface. While she works from a very heart-centered space, she isn’t afraid to dig deep with her clients to get to the root of what’s going on with them. This makes her remarkably effective.
I was personally very inspired by the following quote by Herdis, “I want to wake people up from their daily routine and have them ask themselves what they want out of their lives, then light a spark within them to go for it.” Indeed, Herdis lights that spark which, and here’s your warning, can turn into a marvelous fire!
I would highly recommend Herdis to anyone I know seeking to start treating their real issues instead of just the symptoms. Get ready to take action and achieve great results!”
I didn´t know there was such a thing called coaching until I heard an interview with Herdis Pala on the radio.
I felt she was talking right to me – about all the ideas that I have for myself but hadn´t done anything about.
I contacted her and got the first available appointment and now things are really happening in my life!
Herdis Pala is a coach that inspires me to do something about my ideas and helps me find my way to do it.
I have also realized, since I started working with her, that my big ideas are not unrealistic, not too big and not fantasies!
Before I used to get ideas and thought “no, this will never happen, probably too complicated”.
Herdis Pala has banned me to think this way, or rather given me tools to work with so I don´t think this way.
She walks me through my ideas, asks me tough questions that I sometimes have the answer to and sometimes not.
Being coached by Herdis Pala is inspiring, she encourages me to put my ideas into action, not only thinking about things or deciding on things, but to let things happen. Herdis Pala is realistic and inspiring ideas-vitamin!
I feel I can fly after being coached by Herdis Pala.
Edda Björgvinsdóttir actress, director, speaker and so much more :
“I have never understood what this coaching thing is all about and therefore I decided it was nothing for me. I knew Herdis Pala and that everything she does is smart and that she is a clever person and therefore when she became a coach I decided to give it a try! After several sessions I have discovered the magic of having a coach, to coach me through my sometimes chaotic circumstances and with Herdis Pala´s coaching I have come to believe that I will finally finish my Masters thesis which has been weighing my down. Thanks Herdis for coaching me and equip me with this new way of thinking – that I now use to balance my life!”
Védís Sigurðardóttir, project manager:
“With Herdis Pala´s coaching I have gotten the courage to start right away to actively make myself better both in my professional and private life. I have experienced here support and motivation til boost my self esteem and use it in my job. With the coaching I have also gotten better in organizing my time at work and therefore I now have better balance between my work and life.”
