A Terrible place in my marriage
Women in complicated relationships
I came to Yasmin Abouelhassan when I was in a terrible place in my life concerning my marriage. I knew intuitively I did not want to go to a psychiatrist who is doing marriage counseling. I don’t know how I knew that but I just did.. I wanted someone with “life skills”, I did not even know there is such a thing called life coaching, or relationship coaching, I did not even know what she does,, all I knew is saw her on TV. a couple of times and she made sense., and she was not talking about relationships, it was about dealing with grief. The process she recommended made sense.
I never thought I would actually find her and talk to her, but I tried and found her on the web, and took an appointment. more
What a journey, it’s been almost 3 years, but from day 1 I trusted her, and she has not failed me once. I am not easy to please, and consider myself well read, especially in human relations, so she has to be good for me to continue.
She has coached me into a much better place, she managed to pretty much keep me on track, and at the same time flexible enough to deal with crisis whatever they are, and there were a few.
Not once did she falter, or did I feel she does not know what she is talking about, it seemed to me everything was scientifically backed with research and she really knows what she is doing.
My relationship is miles away from where it started, and I am personally cities away. We did self discovery and wow was that so comforting to know that what I hazily felt, was real, backed by processes and coaching to discover them inside me. She helped me put into words what is missing, develop my passion and be daring enough to take it to the world.
Yasmin’s excellent scientific background, and her high ethical values, come together to make a highly skilled, genuine, honest and credible person to trust as a life coach. I recommend her to everyone – and I mean everyone—everybody needs a relationship/life coach.
This is the best investment one can make, to understand one’s self, one’s needs, hopes, passions, to learn relationship skills, and to have the tools and support, and very important the accountability to a coach to move forward. Yasmin thank you does not say it; my heart says I love you.
I am trying to live the life as it really is and enjoying each &
Actually I am not the kind of person who can put what they feel in words, so I will put it in short... more
It was really a great honor to me to meet such a great person as Yasmin. She is really one of the people whom I thought they no more exist!!
It has been so long a time that I can see anyone trying to help another without something in return!!
Actually before I met Yasmin, I used to think that I am really a mad person, who is really in need for a psychiatric and I was nearly losing hope!! But after I met Yasmin, I found out that things are much simpler than I used to see!!
I will not say that she had the magic stick that took all my pain away & change me completely, But I will say that simply she really helped me a lot to understand my problem, to understand myself & what I really want to do and be !!
For me this was such a great starting point to try to change myself & help myself be better. I am now really feeling so great. I am trying to live the life as it really is and enjoying each & every second in it.
The second point is to be satisfied with what God has given you, to ask God for help & to thank God is your way of happiness always.
This is what Yasmin has taught me.
Thanks a lot Yasmin. I am really thankful for you & I will always remember how positively you affected my life even from few words you told me. Your words were really enough to let me understand a lot of things inside me. Thanks a lot.
We need someone to help us understand how to deal with ourselves
Women in complicated relationships
I faced a lot of hard times after& before divorce, I fell in love with a guy for 3 years and after a lot of troubles our relation came to a dead end .I asked God to be with him forever and I spent 3 years in my life thinking about him , loving him and trying to be his mother , friend , his lover all at the same time but our relation ended so bad at the end and I got divorced after a month & 22 days from date of official marriage which was a shock for me ,my parents and everyone and we ended it up by a lot of troubles and bad events.
These were the most difficult moments I spent in my life .
Of course after all that, I lost faith in myself, my character changed a lot. more
That's when I met someone who started to give me support. Yasmin offered to be my coach. Frankly speaking I wasn’t sure about that but Yasmin started to tell me more about life coaching Yasmin started to bring me articles talking about life coaching at a period of my life when I was very hopeless.
I started to think about the whole thing about what is the meaning to life coaching? how can you coach someone without affecting him with your opinion? It was really hard for me because I am one of the characters that is very weak to take any decision alone ,all my decisions were because I am stubborn and that I want that not because it is right. For the first time I insisted on something and I was dying to spend my whole life with this guy; I failed to achieve that , I found myself pushing through hell alone, I simply broke down .
So to have someone to coach you by listening to your needs and try to help you to achieve your dreams even if it is an unbelievable dream and to let go of what are left inside me from agony and bad memories and hate, something must be appreciated because I believe that two minds are better than one and so on….,
I have to admit that when support comes from someone talented or specialist it’s really helps so much, it makes you discover yourself in a new frame, discover that it is not the end of life that you lose in one battle still there are lots of battles we can win but we only need to face our battle.
My coach as someone specialized in her feild and in her study helped me to discover a lot in myself & character. All I needed is just thinking, good planning and sheering up.
After that I realized that Coaching is something important , we always need people to support us, we can’t live alone in this word we need friends, we need someone to teach and help us to understand how we can deal with ourselves.
Meeting someone like my coach on weekly basics helped me personally, professional and emotionally.
Life coaching will be of great help
Men dealing with work related stress
I was passing through very tough times at work due to the financial crisis and other matters related to my partners. I was faced with a situation where I had to take important decisions that are very crucial to my career. Adding to that, I also had some problems with one of my daughters and again had to make up my mind of how to deal with these problems in a rational way. I was totally overwhelmed with all what was happening around me and started to be depressed and out of focus.
Thanks to my wife, that has heard about Yasmin from a friend of hers, I started talking to her every Saturday at 8 am. That was very convenient for me, as I function best in the early hours of the day. more
After a few sessions of sharing with her all my problems, threats, fears, and concerns, things seemed less tangled. We started to address each matter alone. We set targets and a clear plan to reach such targets. I had a better vision of what I want and how to get there. I was also more positive and focused.
I really believe that if you are passing through a stage in life where you are confused and cannot see a clear path forward, life coaching will be of great help. Thank you Yasmin.
Separation & Divorce
Women starting over
I’ve been going through a rough time during my separation and divorce. I felt down, hopeless and disoriented. Life Coaching helped me to focus on connecting to myself, understand my life priorities, and be aware of my life choices. I was able to move forward, live consciously, accept life experiences and enjoy changes and small achievements. I would love to keep doing life coaching even I don’t have the same problems anymore but we all need to set targets and be prepared for all life challenges.
Yasmin was supportive, good listener, understanding, non judgmental and trustworthy. Her optimism encourages me to move from sadness and anger to acceptance of all life experiences. more
She guided me in every step in my self-development by setting targets that I would like to improve or change in my life. Yasmin is professional in same time a very friendly person, I always felt that she is the person who I like to share with my life challenges knowing that she always care about every single thing happens in my life....
