About host
Hi, I’m Rebecca-Monique: an ICF accredited (PCC) grief and trauma coach, and coach supervisor. My work is centred around supporting individuals through their healing and growth. 

My specialist areas are grief, trauma, anxiety, depression, addiction, sense of Self (identity), boundaries and confidence. My modes of coaching are somatic (i.e. embodied awareness) and transformational (i.e. a focus on attitudes, values, beliefs, behaviours, etc.).

I have particular interests in social sciences and human-centred disciplines, including psychology, psycholinguistics, sociology, spirituality and philosophy. 

I live in London, UK with my son (who is also blessed with the awesomeness that is hyphenated first names!).

You can find out more about my personal journey and what led me to becoming a coach here, and here.

Hi, I’m Rebecca-Monique – an ICF accredited coach and coach supervisor – and these are my passing thoughts.

You’ve never been here before. Remember this. 

  • Changing school, college or university
  • Studying
  • Interviewing for a job
  • Starting a new job
  • Losing a job 
  • Retirement
  • Beginning a new relationship
  • Getting married
  • Travelling or visiting
  • Social gatherings
  • Moving home, city, country
  • Doing a presentation or performing  
  • Talking to strangers
  • Becoming a parent or having another child
  • Puberty, menopause
  • Bereavement

People, places, circumstances, support, context, our mood, motivation, mental and physical health. These variables and so much more are different every time. They’ll influence the intensity of our reactions and our capacity to manage situations. 

Ancient Greek philosopher, Heraclitus is quoted saying: 

“No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.”

Even if you’ve experienced something similar in the past, you are a different version of yourself now. Your view of the world and who you are is altered. 

How reasonable is it to expect to know how to handle this exact situation? 

Sometimes there is no ‘doing better’; there’s just doing our best. 

Sometimes there is no right or wrong way; there’s just the way we can in the moment with the resources we have. 

Extend yourself some grace. You can do hard things. Meet yourself where you are, not where you think you should be.   

Remember: You’ve never been here before. 

My question for you this week is: 

What feels brand new and different every time you experience it? 

Speak to you next week, until then, be well.
