Who I am?
I’m Emilie, a certified transformational coach and aromatherapist with a background in Marketing and Sales. Born in Switzerland, I have been travelling the world before to settle down with my husband in Hong Kong in 2013.
Coaching has been a real life-changer for me, helping me on both personal and professional sides. As a manager and a parent of a dynamic little girl, I thought coaching could be beneficial in my daily life but I wasn’t expecting such a profound shift in my personal development. My coaching studies have been a revelation and quickly became a true vocation. Pursuing my inner calling, I decided to make a bold change in my career and created my own coaching practice.
Essential Mind Coaching reflects the importance of coaching in my life but also another passion, which blends perfectly, the use of essential oils. With the COVID-19 pandemic, I felt even more inclined towards aromatherapy and the use of essential oils helped me to cope with my emotional state, supporting and enhancing the body and the mind in these though times. Certified aromatherapist, I am today convinced of the benefits to use the essential oils in my coaching practice to support my clients on all levels.
My Journey to Coaching
Living in the bustling city of Hong Kong is certainly very exciting and we learn to live by the statement that “busy is good”.
I used to work as a business owner. My days were filled with marketing and sales technics to get more clients, more profit, more brand recognition, more, more, and more… I was driven by the idea that I could do better, have beyond what I already had, and earn extra money. I was not even aware I was putting myself under constant pressure. COVID-19 surely didn’t help, and added another layer of stress onto that. As a consequence, I became seriously ill. I lost weight and suffered from constant fever and extreme fatigue. For months, doctors tried to find out the cause of my illness without being able to point the disease. All medication failed; I felt worn out and at the end of my wits.
I turned to holistic approaches and started to believe in a mind-body connection. I understood that my mental and emotional states were blocking my physical healing. With the help of coaching, I started to shift my mental focus from misery to wellbeing. Session after session I gained awareness, clarity and understanding of my own beliefs and perceptions of the reality. I was able to create new visions and put in place positive changes. Within weeks, all my symptoms disappeared, and few months later I was in the best shape of my life, and most importantly I had never felt so much alive!
I realized that personal development was the key to my mind and body wellbeing, and the life I was living before didn’t allow me to grow to that extent. I am truly grateful to be able to work with people who are passionate about (re)-taking ownership of their own lives in the same way I did.
