Savoir Vivre Crossroads Coaching…

…laced with a sensible amount of French “savoir faire.”

For anyone who feels overwhelmed by impending change, whether planned or unplanned.

Standing at the crossroads, despite the ever-escalating anxiety that threatens to overwhelm you, you have a choice. You can change the way you live your life. The coronavirus crisis has seen most of us adjust our priorities, what was crucially important to us beforehand might be less so now; what was of little importance has now become of utmost importance.

During lockdown, we had nothing to do, nowhere to go, nothing to look forward to while we contemplated, days on end, the threat of becoming seriously ill, losing our loved ones, our jobs, our businesses and the complete political and social disintegration of life as we know it.

The coronavirus crisis gave the term ‘stressed beyond endurance” a whole new meaning. We feared for our very survival, we were worried that we might lose our homes, be unable to buy groceries or pay for medical care.

We suddenly had to work from home, were furloughed, were made redundant, lost our jobs because of slashed budgets, had to close our small businesses. Those of us who are retired feared that our income would no longer be enough to cover our needs.

We have had to assimilate the ‘new normal.’

We have changed. We work differently, we think differently, we react differently, we spend our time differently.

In many parts of the world, the pandemic is no less of a threat than it had been. We are still stressed, overworked and overwhelmed, many of us are teetering on the edge of burnout.

I feel so incredibly lucky to have had this chance that worked out so amazingly in divine timing. I know that you are, yourself, going through a stressful time and so that is why I am even more grateful that despite that, you were there to help me through this transition. I am also inspired by you and how you have faced your challenges, and I appreciate so much that you are also so human, with vulnerabilities just like we all have. Thanks also for sharing these moments with me. Anisah A. 2019

I was skeptical about transition coaching, initially, but it has finally been one of the most enriching experiences of my life. Margaretha coached me through one of the biggest transitions I have ever had to deal with and because of her encouragement and support I had the courage and confidence to cope with monumental changes in my life. She helped me to master the skills I needed to deal with whatever challenge life throws my way. I can still hear her now, “Whatever happens, you can handle it!” Steph M 2020
