About Me

Updated on November 25, 2023

Hi, I'm Monika

I'm a Life, Career & Purpose Coach, wife, and the mother of a smart, beautiful four year-old little girl.

I come from Hungary but have lived in the UK for 7 years.

My Struggles

Having had many years of teaching experience when I became a mother and returned to school teaching, I realized that working as a school teacher wasn't working for me anymore. It didn't give me too much freedom and work-life balance to be the parent I want to be, even though teaching will always be a meaningful part of my personality.
I felt like I was failing at work and as a parent. I wanted a change – a more fulfilling job, better balance, and better finances.

My Transformation

I was trapped in a situation where I felt I loved teaching, but the circumstances: the tremendous amount of overwork and not being allowed to decide when I would go on holiday and be with my daughter when she was ill and needed me, brought me the feeling of dissatisfaction, and I embarked on a journey of transformation that has brought me to where I am today.

Transforming my teaching skillset toward coaching, from helping people learn information to helping people change and find their fulfilled work that is in alignment with their true selves, is my passion, and I feel coaching is a career that lights me up.

From struggling, I have blossomed into someone genuinely in love with what I do and who I am. I have experienced true fulfillment and peace of mind by creating harmony and balance in my life.

My Mission

My mission is to uplift and inspire individuals struggling with unfulfillment and unhappiness in their careers and lives. I understand the pain and frustration that comes with feeling stuck, and my ultimate desire is to empower others to break free from their limitations and embrace lives filled with purpose, joy, and boundless potential. Together, let's unleash your inner genius and create a future that surpasses your boldest dreams.

I believe you are here for a reason.

Deep down, you know who you are and what you want.

You have an unwavering feeling that there is something in life you’re meant to do, but you need help figuring it out.

You’re tired of feeling guilty because no matter how great life seems, you still feel unfulfilled and unsatisfied.

You’re tired of feeling lost. You want clarity and direction.

My goal is to empower you to cut through the confines of cultural conditioning, overcome your fears, and authentically express the truth of who you are with courage and confidence.

Together, we’ll uncover your unique purpose and develop a solid strategy for bringing it to life, so you can be the change our world so desperately needs.

My whole life has led me to this work.

My story

I was born in Hungary, and I was grown up in a small village in the countryside. I got a teacher’s diploma and started working as a teacher when I was 22. I met my husband when I was 19 years old, and we moved to the capital, Budapest, after being together for five years.

I worked in schools for over ten years gaining further teacher’s diplomas. During my teaching career, I started to deal with self-awareness and mindfulness, and I created many self-awareness exercises for my students at the boarding school where I worked for seven years. I wrote my thesis for my BA English Studies diploma in Work-Life Balance in Canada.

When I studied at university to get my MA diploma in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, I suffered from burnout, fatigue, anxiety, and sleeping problems from the immense workload and the numerous assignments I needed to hand in at university. Then I applied for a Harmony School, where I learned to use Audio-Visual Entrainment devices by the Canadian MindAlive company. I got to know their David Delight Pro device, with which I could reduce my anxiety and sleeping problems and achieve a deep level of relaxation and meditation. With the help of it, I was able to achieve better mental and physical performance, improve my memory, reduce my stress, improve my sleep, increase my energy levels, and even combat the blues.

Meanwhile, a new law was introduced in Hungary. I should have finished my university studies and gained a B2 level language examination in another language than English in a year; otherwise, I couldn’t have worked for that school. My headteacher forced me to achieve this. My life reached a point when I didn’t know what to do. Finally, I made my decision…

I left my school job and looked for a receptionist job that was a restful workplace for me, and I could finish my university studies. At the same time, I started to go to a psychologist who helped me transform my mindset and gave me many exciting exercises for this. I found those exercises fascinating because we worked on my negative thoughts and transformed them into positive ones. I had to pay attention to the language and how I verbalized my thoughts in my internal dialogues. I felt them very close to my English teaching.

When I took my final exam at the university, I didn’t feel too motivated to start learning another language to get my B2 examination for having my MA diploma in my hand. I started working at a company that offered medical devices for hospitals, medical institutes, and professionals.

In this position, I learned a lot about marketing and business. I could participate in an international professional meet-up in Prague, but most of the time, I needed to deal with spreadsheets and many numbers. I didn’t feel I could use my creativity in that position as much as I would have liked. If I briefly summarised my skills, I would say that my strengths are words, not numbers.

I felt I couldn’t utilize my communication, language, creativity, and organizing skills in that position. My colleagues were primarily economists and financial professionals; my mindset, perspective, and personality differed significantly from theirs.

Then we decided with my husband to move to the UK. He got a job in Southampton, a wonderful city on England’s south coast. I was pleased because I have always wished to live in the UK.

I continued private online teaching and started working at a Catholic secondary school. I worked in the English department and dealt with SEN students. I really loved that job; my colleagues were very helpful, kind, and inspiring. I felt I belonged to a fantastic family. Meanwhile, I got my MA degree from the university because they abolished their requirement for an additional foreign language examination, so they posted my diploma.

I had worked for that school for three years when my beautiful girl was born. I can’t find words to verbalize the feelings and transformation motherhood brought into my life. However, since our birth had many complications, I needed to go to physical therapy with her for more than one year; she needed to wear a special helmet, so it was obvious that I couldn’t go back to the school where I had worked before.

I really loved the time spent with her, but at the same time, I started to feel lonely and burnt out. I thought she needed me, and I could help her develop more effectively by staying home with her. This time was in the peak time of Covid, so the closeness didn’t affect my mood well.

Then I looked for a coach for myself. I had private sessions with her, then joined a group coaching with other mother peers, and we participated in very exciting Zoom coaching sessions. I started to feel that that is what I would like to do, too—helping women through coaching. I felt that coaching is very close to my teaching work, assisting people in developing.

I started to write a mummy blog, read many mindfulness books and articles, watched many Youtube videos, and listened to numerous podcasts on mindfulness, relaxation, coaching, and psychology.
Then I got an ESL teaching job at a college that I accepted. I was thrilled to be among people again and teach. My daughter was 27 months old and settled successfully at a nursery then.

However, she was ill many times, and I also got many colds, so my line manager wasn’t happy too much because of my often absence. I started to feel I would like to return to coaching and continue my learning in mindfulness.

I found the website of The Coaching Master Academy and applied for their membership. I have done their Foundation training in Coaching, NLP, and Holistic Coaching.
I found many things in this training that resonated with me, and I applied for their accreditation training and got my International Coaching Accreditation Certificate.
From my personal experience, I understand how anxiety, burnout, fatigue, and sleeping problems can negatively impact life. I have always strived to be perfect, even as a child. I was always an excellent student who could not let herself get bad grades. I have worked very hard to manage my anxiety, and now I want to help you because I know it’s possible.

I often found myself putting others’ needs first, not setting boundaries, and waking up burnt out. I would question myself and often give up. But there was a time in my life when I had enough. I realized I was stuck instead of moving forward in my life’s journey.

I noticed that balance and purpose started to appear in my life; I could build healthier relationships in my life. So, I began setting boundaries and letting go of relationships that were not serving me. I said “no” more often.

If my story or anything I have said about my coaching resonates with you any way, I invite you to reach out to me, and we can begin creating a plan of action for your confidence building, self-love, which will create balance, purpose, and authenticity you deserve in your life.

I am so looking forward to helping you be your confident self and be true to yourself!
