My clients say...

“One of the greatest gifts I have given myself and my family is to work with an incredible coach. Silvia is dynamic, compassionate and intuitive. She not only knows of the problems that parents face bringing up children, she understands them. Silvia is also a great listener and communicator. She offers approaches that come with clear explanation while making sure it is the right solution and sustainable for our family. I find myself applying what I learn every day. Over the course of our time together, I am starting to see myself become more the person I have always wanted to be – more patient and understanding, calmer and happier. I was so strongly supported in this process. Silvia enabled me to value myself as a parent. I felt energized after our sessions and have a better understanding of what I need to do to make my family and our relationships stronger. Silvia has given me the tools to build a healthier, more fulfilling family life. My children, my husband and I have benefitted from Silvia’s coaching and our family dynamics reflect that.”

"Mi sono rivolta a Silvia perché desideravo migliorare l'atmosfera della vita famigliare e mi sono resa conto che avevo bisogno di aiuto per cambiare alcune abitudini ormai consolidate. La naturalezza e la compassione che Silvia trasmette dal primo incontro, mi hanno permesso di connettermi con me stessa innanzitutto come persona e poi come genitore e di avere consapevolezza dei punti di forza e di debolezza del rapporto con i miei figli. Il lavoro fatto con Silvia mi ha permesso di guardare i miei figli con occhi nuovi, di assaporare meglio i momenti piacevoli con loro e di accogliere con compassione i momenti più complicati. 

Essere genitori è un viaggio senza fine fatto di apprendimento e di adattamento alla crescita dei figli: grazie a Silvia ora ho alcuni strumenti molto utili per gestire con maggior consapevolezza questo viaggio straordinario." Chiara, mamma di due

"Silvia’s mindfulness workshop was outstanding. She provided a warm, professional and  informative introduction to meditation, as well as many opportunities both to reflect and to interact with fellow participants." Bonnie, Self-care workshop participant.

“Through parent coaching, I learned a lot about myself as a parent. During the process, I discovered what my strengths and my weaknesses are as a mother and then I learned, step by step , how to use those strengths to build a better connection with my girls and avoid the really tough times, or face them with self-control and patience. Besides that, I also learned how important self-care is when we are a parent, how it plays a big role in our children's feelings and wellbeing. Silvia has been a wonderful coach , I really appreciate the way she guided me to where I wanted to be , to my goals and my wishes.”

Magalie, mother of 2, almost 3 kids under the age of 5, from Madagascar

"In un periodo difficile della mia vita di mamma ho chiesto aiuto a Silvia sotto consiglio di un’amica, avevo una grande difficoltà ad affrontare una (seppur momentanea) separazione del mio primo figlio che ha fatto un’esperienza all’estero per alcuni mesi.

Silvia mi aiutata moltissimo con il suo atteggiamento zen e la sua franchezza e pazienza ad aprirmi e a vedere le cose sotto un punto di vista diverso, e grazie alle sue domande mirate ho capito tante cose su me stessa e su di lui.

Silvia mi ha dato uno strumento di misura dei miei sentimenti e dei comportamenti di mio figlio che mi è servito ad affrontare sensazioni e discussioni con una maggiore serenità.

Mi ha fatto capire quanto le mie paure e il mio dolore per il distacco siano stati non dei sentimenti “nemici” ma un mezzo per crescere insieme a lui e per aiutarlo a vivere la sua esperienza in maniera serena ma non egoista, mantenendo comunque un rapporto schietto ma rispettoso di entrambi.

Consiglierei a tutte le mamme di fare degli incontri con lei perché a volte la vita di mamma ci mette a dura prova e non siamo preparati ad affrontare le sfide che ci impone.” Paola, mamma di 3 figli di 8, 15 e 17 anni.

“Parent coaching has made me focus on the positive things in my family and my life - on my strengths. That is a focus that can be challenging for me, normally. Silvia made me reflect on specific dynamics in my family from a different perspective which was very giving and educational. I loved working with Silvia because she sees the positive in people, and it is easy to trust and be open with her. She has a very non-judgmental demeanour which I believe is essential in a coaching relationship. 

After working with Silvia, my family started having very calm and pleasant mornings. I have started using my sense of humour more, and this makes the atmosphere much lighter. This approach is a direct change from working with Silvia. I can recommend her enough to anyone who wants to change dynamics and habits in their family but struggling to get results."

Ea Laura, mother of 3 kids under the age of 10, Danish 

“Silvia is a fantastic parent coach!  Working with Silvia helped me to find greater clarity in my parenting in three important areas -- appropriate use of electronic media, finding a healthy and balanced approach to snacks and treats, and building my daughters' intrinsic motivation for making good decisions.  Silvia's coaching gave me new insights, while also affirming some of the approaches i have been using.  Silvia helped to improve my parenting skill and confidence.”

Robert, Father of two daughters (4 and 7), American
