Testimonials

“I came to see Isabel Thompson searching for some direction in my personal and professional lives.

“Although outwardly successful”, I was quite unhappy with the direction my life was moving in. With the help of Power Map analysis, Isabel helped me “figure out what areas were lacking and how to ameliorate them”.

I particularly enjoyed the “homework”-tangible daily action items geared towards furthering the goals that we had laid out together. Three years after our intense sessions, I find I routinely use the coping and management skills she taught me, and I feel like I am driving my life in the direction I want it to go”  D, 41 years old, medical doctor

“The work with Isabel has given me a much deeper understanding of my own personality and my interactions with others, particularly in a professional environment. Isabel has a knack for people and asks the right questions to make you understand your own actions, often driven by subconscious decisions and assumptions. I can highly recommend her approach. “ S, manager, 34

“We came to Isabel for help with difficulties in our relationship. We found Isabel approachable, supportive, and easy to talk with. We also found her very incisive. Isabel quickly identified key issues, some of them cross-cultural, that we had not understood ourselves and gently talked us through them. We’re very grateful for the help, which definitely ironed out the issues. Thank you, Isabel.” C & M, expatriates in Geneva

I sought out Isabel when I was started experiencing high levels of stress and anxiety connected to my job. I was uncertain if I was in the right career path, and needed some objective support to identify my career options as well as the emotional support to deal with the stress and anxiety I was feeling at the moment. Isabel gave me with a safe place to express my concerns and feelings. She provided me sound guidance and productive exercises to work through my unhealthy emotional state and start building a more balanced future. As a result, I regained confidence to make the decisions needed to change the direction of my career. I also started dealing more directly with a personal relationship that was a source of repression at the time. Three years after my time with Isabel, I am happily engaged in a new career path and am involved in a new and healthy relationship. Perhaps I could have gotten here on my own, but I am so grateful that I didn’t need to. Thanks, Isabel, for everything. E,30 years old
