Trying to be better? Me too.
Here is my story
Life has not always been great. Even when I was frightened, and felt challenged by life, I still pushed myself, my urge to achieve was greater than my fear.
At age 31, my life was a mess. My ten years arranged marriage had failed. With no money in my account and two beautiful children to look after. My life wasn't just mine anymore so giving up wasn't not an option, if not for me I had to do it for my children.
Arriving in England in 1999 as a refugee, without family or friends and unable to speak the language was one of the toughest experiences I have faced. Even though I was fluent in two other languages and had gained a University degree, starting a new life away from home was a huge challenge.
Since 2009, I have helped my clients break through the obstacles that seem to be holding them back in life.
I work with clients; individuals and businesses starting from twelve weeks, six months and twelve monthly programmes.
I know for a fact that for any changes to take place you have to have applied the same strategy for at least twelve weeks.
Even the strongest among us can feel lost, unsure, ambivalent, or unhappy at times.
Remember you have a choice. Each of us has a past and, although we might wish some events had never happened, they cannot be erased. Over the years I have learnt that I can chose how to respond to the past. I can be miserable, or I can be hopeful; I can be depressed or I can be happy.
"I know I have that choice"
Accept that bad things happen. Adverse events have and will always occur to us. It is about finding a way to live with and accept them. I was involved in serious car accident which had a mental and physical impact on me. I could have remained stuck in the trauma of my experience or accept that this has happened. I “grieved” for all the possible outcomes including the fear that my children could have been left without their mother. Freedom lies in learning to embrace what happened.
Learn how to take risks. Taking risks does not mean throwing yourself blindly into danger. In order to be free, you need to learn how to take risks that are necessary for true self-realisation. A while back a dear friend of mine told me that “Embrace your fears, do not be imprisoned by them. To do things is not always easy, and if you don’t you are allowing safety to win over freedom”

I first contacted Shqiponja when I was completely burned out; Working full time as a doctor, and completing my degree while bringing up my two children (3 and 5 year old). My home felt like a hotel, I was hardly ever there, my children were missing me and my husband and I were working different shifts so we could cover childcare. Just after just a few sessions, I feel like an entirely different person. We now work on a plan, after creating an Action Plan we found out that we have many more opportunities to enjoy our life and not just exist. I can’t recommend Shqiponja's coaching enough.
I had experienced changes in my life that were affecting my mood and ability to function. Shqiponja helped me work through what I was feeling and now I’m on the path to feeling healthy and productive once again.

Working with Shqiponja was a life-changing experience. I learned how to appreciate the difficult moments of life and not let them define me. Shqiponja brought out the characteristics and talents that I never knew I possessed. If for any reason you are feeling stuck, I highly recommend working with them.
I wasn’t very satisfied with my life when I first contacted Shqiponja/KickAssCoach. Now, after just a few sessions, I feel like an entirely different person. I can’t recommend these coaching sessions enough.
