Hello there!

I’m Irina,

I’m an alignment coach for successful, ambitious and high-achieving women in the corporate world. I help women reconnect to themselves and reach their full potential, so they can live a deeply satisfying and joyful life.

But why am I the right woman for the job?

Because I’ve already helped hundreds women around the world, myself included, go from totally lost, disconnected and overwhelmed by work to living a life in complete alignment with their values and owning who they are.

My Story

For over a decade, I worked in a high-pressure sales environment and at first, I loved it. The enjoyment of working with passionate and driven clients was incredibly rewarding at the beginning, and I could relate to them a lot. They inspired me to work hard to achieve my dreams, which isn’t a bad ethic to have, and I truly believed if you worked for it, everything is possible. It wasn't until further down the line that I started to question who, or what, I was working for.

To the rest of the world it probably seemed I had it all, and I thought I did; a well paid job, a decent flat, lots of friends and extravagant holidays. It took me years to question whether this was really what I wanted. Tired of the constant stress, the pressure of delivering results, I realised something was missing. Always busy and on the go, I still didn’t know what that was, but I knew something had to change. I knew I wanted to find more joy, passion and meaning in my life, and stop chasing a never-ending finish line.

It was at this point that I looked around and saw the true nature of the world I was working in. Numbers and profit driven, my bosses didn’t actually care about the client and their needs. Having worked with them for years, I knew my clients trusted me and I could sell them anything, but I still saw them as human beings, so this reality didn’t sit well with me. I knew deep down that my true values weren’t aligned with my work, and even though I loved the feeling of success, I wanted my success to reflect what I believed in.

Confused, exhausted and always in my head, all of my fears and anxieties multiplied when my husband left me. I started to work even harder to hide them, to prove to the world I was strong and independent, when really, I was crumbling inside. Success became even more important to me because it was an artificial way to mask the real truth of my situation. It was a way for me to lie to myself, to take the easier route into a state of self-denial.

Artificial and inauthentic, my life did not reflect who I truly was. As my wellbeing deteriorated to its lowest point, I felt like I was no longer choosing my life; my life was choosing me.

The final, pivotal moment came when I was at an awards ceremony, receiving my annual award at work. Everyone was applauding, and as I made my way across the stage, I realized I didn’t want to be applauded for generating revenue in a bank; I wanted to be applauded for making a difference in the world. What was missing from my life was the real me, dreaming and believing that I could make a change. And that realisation felt more fulfilling than anything I’d experienced in my years of work.

Since that day, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery that took me back to my true identity. I spent the following four years reading, learning and attending hundreds of self-development seminars. I went to training and spiritual retreats, qualified as a Life Coach and NLP Practitioner, and transformed my life in a way I never thought was possible.

 
 

I now live an abundantly joyful, authentic and fulfilling life. I am happily married, have a successful coaching business and most importantly, I do what I love; empowering successful women to reconnect to themselves and live life to the full. I am still successful, but my perspective on success has changed. A stillness resides in me, a contentment for all that I have, and as I continue forward with this peace of mind, I can’t wait to help women all over the world in making small but powerful changes to transform their lives and the world around them.

Authenticity means letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we actually are.
