"The difference between a good and a bad day is what you focus on"
Not Another Coaching Company is not just another coaching and training company. "The world does not need another coach", for the longest time, this was my response to people around me who were encouraging me to start my own practice. I decided that if I do, it is not going to be just another coaching company. It is a life-changing coaching company.
My name is Khawla Shehadeh, I am in my 40s and what I have to offer to you as a coach and trainer is special for several reasons. Firstly, due to the unconventional path that my own life has led me on: An intensive meditation training at a young age, a year of silent solitary retreat, my (Palestinian/Dutch) background, my philosophical and spiritual pursuits combined with my grounded, pragmatic, light and humoristic character.
I offer workshops and trainings in Mindfulness, but not just any mindfulness. It is the highest quality of the classic Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program from Jon Kabat-Zinn. The most scientifically researched and acknowledged meditation form in the world. In my workshops MBSR is combined with a deep-rooted personal knowledge and experience in the thousands of years old tradition of Buddhist meditation. The origins of where all mindfulness meditation began.
My second specialty is in Compassionate Communication (Non-Violent Communication) from Marshall Rosenberg. A model so simple, so pure and yet so revolutionary. It is utterly transformative and liberating. It brings us back to the basics of communication which is connection. We all long for connection and yet we lose this when we think, speak and listen in terms of guilt, shame, accusation, oppression, submission. We lose the connection to ourselves and thereby to others. Compassionate Communication restores your birthright to true freedom and helps you connect to the underlying feelings and needs to everything you do, say or hear and that of others. It is essential in recovering the key to your own happiness and wellbeing and in building and restoring relationships to others.
From these two perspectives and methods I also offer personal coaching so to work on your own mission or challenge. Coaching is, however, only possible after having attended at least one of my workshops or trainings.
