Aisha Rachel Paez
My main experience is working with anxiety, career coaching, depression, relationship and work related issues, cultural identity, burnout, self-esteem, stress and life changing events. I'm also trained as trauma therapist and work as an EMDR practitioner and Employee Assistance Program counsellor and coach for different international companies. As an ex-corporate professional working in high pressure, multicultural environments I have particular understanding of the main challenges faced when trying to balance work and personal life and live in line with your purpose and values.
The psychosynthesis context which I follow is about Self exploration and awareness of our true essence so we can live and develop in a meaningful way. In my practice I aim to work together in creating personalised tools to support self-connection, inner freedom and growth for individuals and teams, so that clearer and achievable goals may be defined and you could overcome (self or externally) imposed limitations. We explore your past experiences not to stay there (lost in analysis) but to identify old patterns and coping mechanism so we can re-define your present and future.
The two passions in my professional life to date have been hydrocarbon exploration and the subconscious exploration by helping people understand their inner world. Much of the early part of my career was spent working as a Geophysical engineer looking for oil and gas in some of the great basins around the world. During my 14 + years of experience in the corporate sector, I’ve learnt the importance of developing effective communication skills at all levels to achieve significant professional and personal connections. Being on a high-pressure environment has taught me to be self-motivated and methodical in my approach without losing sight of the big picture.
Training and working as a counsellor/psychotherapist and coach has helped me to reach a new level of awareness from experiencing a greater sense of connectedness and emphasising the need of receptivity and empathy in our work environment. I get real satisfaction from these exchanges and feel motivated by soulful personal interactions that help improving life for individuals and teams

First consultation is 50% off and it is mainly a first assessment to see how/if we could work together and all other practicalities and questions you may have. After that, we could make the decision of what will be the best way forward.
