Hi, I’m Jelena.
I am a Personal Change Manager – I work with individuals on the move who are looking to take charge of an exciting or an unwelcome change in their relationships, career, and whereabouts.
I believe that human connection has transformative power in all aspects of our lives and that the right support can change lives for the better.
I needed and used such support myself, moving countries and places. I have lived in three countries, maintained and grew a 17-year long successful career in Finance in all three of them, while nurturing a loving relationship and keeping devoted to healthy lifestyle.
Not an easy task…
On this journey I have gone through expectations and challenges, ambitions and obstacles, achievements and failures in both, my professional and my personal life. I have felt what it means losing the support network all at once. I have dealt with CHANGE in its lowest but also in its best.
My efforts to master the “switch-culture and adapt” game, only further enriched my natural interest in what people are like and what makes them tick. I got to realize the tremendous significance of support and I got equipped with coping tools and techniques which I am now happy to share. While intuitively we all cope, there’s a method behind keeping oneself focused on personal goals and well-being while in transition.
Now settled in Greece, I provide long-distance coaching and mentoring sessions, and run an island retreat for interactive activities dedicated to personal growth.
To me, Personal Change Manager is not another fancy moniker for “life coach”. Nobody can “coach” you to live, but everyone is his own Change Manager with a little support given and commitment taken.
Apart from the MBA, MSc of Banking and Finance, I am International Coaching Federation (ICF) – certified for Executive Coaching and Mentoring, ACC candidate, a Relationship Coaching trainee of the leading psychotherapist for modern relationships – Esther Perel, and a multilingual nomadic professional.
I hold 400 sessions each year with clients from all over the world. Read here what clients say about my work.
All of us experience moments when unwanted emotions intensify, when our behavior leads to unwanted and unpleasant results —and that’s normal. It’s what you do about it that makes all the difference.
Although, conflicts are inevitable in any close relationships, there are healthy ways to handle conflict. There are also proven techniques that can instantly turn these arguments around. How? This is what you will gain from joining Relationship Flip online workshop with me.
Surrender literally means to stop fighting. Stop fighting with yourself. Stop fighting the universe and the natural flow of things. Stop resisting and pushing against reality. Surrender = Complete acceptance of what is + Faith that all is well, even without my input. It’s not about inaction. It’s about taking action from that place of surrender energy.
Living and working in congruence with your values and overcoming your limiting beliefs is critical for achieving the best we can and create and lead a life we love. And this is where we gain our confidence from.
Too often we live life on autopilot, stay stuck in our patterns and our routine even when we don’t find it anymore so comfortable. We want to change, but feel discouraged with the task at hand and rather live a less than fulfilling life. We stay in an unhealthy relationship, or continue to work at the job that drains our life energy or never find the courage to move forward with our business idea. Whatever it is, it has a cost.
Like you, I also like to see a good love movie once in a while. However, lately I have started realizing that the wedding vows we hear in those movies additionally raise our expectations from Mr./Mrs. Perfect or The One to the point that this person doesn’t exist, at least not in one body.
