What People Are Saying:
First and foremost, this coaching experience has made me realize how vital it is having a coach who is wiser and yet still relatable. In addition, Fumi has been challenging me in the best way possible to challenge my own myths and misconceptions. She’s done this not only by asking me to identify things that I can recognize to be untrue or harmful, but by subsequently replacing it with what she calls a “higher truth.” This has been an absolute game changer for me, considering suppression is only a temporary hack. In that sense, my relationship with myself has had room to blossom and cement itself in wonderful and supportive soil.
Fumi provides homework and stackable habits to incorporate into my life after each session. All of these have visible changes in improving my life, my thought process, the way I present myself, and the way that I act. Eventually, some of these habits have become second nature, and have given me so much more confidence. And I can directly point back to specific coaching sessions as the source for these positive changes.
Coaching with Fumi is the primary decision I made in a sequence of life improvements this year. With her help, I am growing in all aspects of my life, attracting better people, and confronting challenges in a more authentic way. I no longer doubt myself often or overthink everything. She challenges me to think about what I want and makes me feel empowered to be my own advocate and best friend. I am so grateful for my decision to work with her!
I learned how to distinguish the difference between an anxious response and a reasonable response to disrespect. Fumi was very direct, and got right to the heart of the issue quickly. Since our session I have rekindled things with my ex-partner. Our new relationship is much stronger than the last. I took your feedback, to heart about establishing boundaries and standards, and not defaulting to just assuming my needs are less valid because of my anxious attachment style. I’m a lot more assertive and happy now. Still watching your content for tips and insights.
My session with Fumi was more than I could have expected. She was so insightful and she gave me several activities to do on my own after our session. Since then, completing those journaling activities has opened my eyes to a lot about myself. I've done a ton of internal work but her coaching helped me uncover some things that I didn't realize needed attention. I not only have more explicit boundaries, but I feel more comfortable sticking to them. I already notice the change in my dating life, particularly being less anxious about losing men. Having a more solid foundation in who I am and what I want has given me the confidence to know that I'm not asking for too much and there's a man out there who will provide it. Coaching with Fumi is exactly what I needed to start this next chapter.
I had an intro session with Fumi for potential life coaching and she unknowingly ministered to my soul. That intro session was only 30 minutes but it ended in tears because I had finally admitted some of my fears and traumas that had been affecting my relationships for some time...We did 4 in-depth sessions and after each session, I had a homework assignment. One of my favorite assignments so far, she had me write down all my fears and a rebuttal for them. I still reflect on the rebuttals each time those fears start to appear again. My favorite rebuttal that Fumi helped me come up with and I confess every day is 'Other people's experiences do not define mine. All I've seen is not all there is.' Those words have kept me in some of my low-faith moments.
