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.

“There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in” are famous words from Leonard Cohen’s Anthem.  

Light will always find a way, and when it succeeds things become clearer and brighter. 

In traditional Japanese aesthetics, Wabi-sabi is the concept of appreciating beauty in the transient and imperfect. 

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold 

No matter how split off or in pieces we may feel, mending and healing is possible. 

You’re not broken. You’re wounded. 

You’re not defective. You’re healing. 

You’re not incomplete. You’re whole. 

We’re all perfectly imperfect.  

Our flaws, imperfections, and struggles make us unique. 

They’ve played an instrumental part in character building; in becoming the person we are today. 

My question for you this week is: 

Which of your flaws can you find beauty in today?
