I underestimated the toll that the pandemic has taken on me
I came into our coaching sessions after living almost two years in what seemed to be a daily nightmare working on the frontlines as an ICU nurse during the Covid pandemic.
To say that the last two years have been difficult is understanding. Having been an ICU nurse for over twenty years, I underestimated the toll that the pandemic has taken on me. I felt like I had nothing more to give to my profession and like an inadequate mother to my children.
While I was feeling depressed and hopeless, you helped me to look into my good qualities and helped me recognize the need to take time to take care of myself. Though is a work in progress, I was able to set short-term goals that will help me live a healthier and more fulfilling life. For example, making sure that I exercise every day even if it is for a small of time.
Working with you was very comfortable and fun. I looked forward to our scheduled meeting. Having someone listen and guide you through your goals without feeling like you are being judged was very refreshing. It is so easy to lose track of your small goals and having you there to guide me through the process was very valuable.
The thing I appreciated the most about our sessions is that they made me realize that I have a lot of qualities that I don't give myself credit for. I am resilient above all and I fail to recognize that. You helped me feel unstuck!
I feel that many people would benefit from your coaching, I can think of my coworkers and friends. In fact, I cannot think of anyone who wouldn't benefit from working with you.
Thank you for your help and guidance.
