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.

This is the 99th episode. In tribute to famous Jay Z lyrics, it feels like an opportune time to say I’ve got 99 problems but reflection ain’t one. 

The thing with problems is, if we look for them, we’ll find them, and plenty. 

When our confirmation bias kicks in, we identify whatever supports the perspective we want to believe. 

If prolonged, victimhood and disempowerment become caked into our identity

It becomes easy to adopt a nihilistic and pessimistic view of ourselves, others and the world. 

But...

We can choose realism with a healthy dose of optimism

We can lean into the more pleasing, satisfying thought 

We can embrace empowerment 

We can orient to the opposite view 

We can see problems as puzzles 

We can practise gratitude 

We can seek opportunities for growth 


My question for you this week is: 

What’s going right? 

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