Client Success Stories

“I feel so fortunate to have met and been guided by Paula – her compassionate and direct approach means you get the most out of every session and move forward to progress through challenges quickly and effectively. She is dedicated to her passion and this shines through. She has a natural talent for teaching and coaching people to learn and grow. I most valued how genuinely compassionate she was.

Being provided with the ability to critically think about and unpack complex issues and perceptions has given me the ability to diffuse potentially challenging situations. Recognizing my needs, values and strengths has meant I can identify who adds value to my life and where I can add value to others. Learning more about myself and recognizing strengths and weaknesses has meant a genuine sense of self-acceptance and an ability to own my stuff, work on it and move forward. I feel like the sole creator of my life and feel empowered to make positive lasting changes.”

“Paula has an astute ability to very quickly and effectively identify problem areas within a professionals life and career styles and turn them around into major opportunities through coaching techniques. This is achieved without burdening the professional but allowing for intense self analysis at your own time and convenience.

Certainly a coach of note and highly recommended for very busy executives and professionals who want to enhance their whole person balance in life, no matter where in the world you operate from!”

“Paula is an unusual coach; she is highly professional, compassionate and deeply engaged with her clients not only during sessions, but in-between, should they need her.

Her approach is direct, open-minded. She is unafraid to challenge the status quo. At the same time, with each client, she delivers a personalized coaching experience, meeting the client where they are in a judgment-free environment.

I met Paula while she was navigating an international move (to a country where she did not speak the language!). I was bowled over by her resilience during that transition and by her unwavering ability to keep her eye on the ball: being an awesome mom and a highly effective coach (while re-building a coaching practice in a new country).

Paula is vastly committed to professional development; she studies with leaders in coaching and positive psychology on an ongoing basis to improve her skills and to grow not only as a coach but in all the roles she values; mother, wife, entrepreneur and person.

I have been Paula’s instructor (Positive Acorn: Coaching Wellbeing), mentor and coach. She is delightful to work with, full of integrity and has a wonderful ability to get to the heart of any matter. I thoroughly enjoy our sessions together and recommend her without reservation.”

“Paula is a brilliant coach with a solid understanding of coaching, positive psychology and human behavior change.

She takes a keen interest in, and shows a genuine concern for her coaching clients.

I highly recommend Paula to anyone who wants to raise their game to the next level!”

“I’ve known Paula Facci since 2010, and in that time we have grown to be the closest of friends. She is the person I turn to as a coach and mentor, and has been instrumental as a support person to me over the last few years.

What I love most is her continued commitment to ongoing personal development and self mastery which to me is mandatory in being a powerful coach. I also love and value so much the commitment she gives of herself to every client she takes on. I have brought Paula into STAR Leadership as a coach and mentor to the coaching students, as she very much espouses the values of STAR, which are: sanctuary (the ability to create a safe and conscious space), transparency, authenticity and responsibility.”

“I really enjoyed coaching sessions and they have made a huge difference in my life. Coaching helped me regain self-esteem. I started to feel good about myself and believe in myself again. Paula gave me hope and a positive attitude again. The way I approached every task, changed. “Feel good, do good.”

I started utilizing my skills which I was taking for granted, while not realizing that those are the things that makes me unique from other people. My decision making ability has improved, and I easily identify what uplifts and drains me. Paula helped me to explore, open up and stop limiting myself, be more engaged, network and connect with people. I now live life not according to society’s expectations, but according to what works best and what matters most to me.”

“I can’t even describe what a change coaching through Paula has brought to me in my personal and business life. I have gained so much awareness about myself and my interactions with others. Life coaching is something I would strongly advise for everyone that wants to understand themselves and others better and those that want to excel in all areas of their lives!”

“Coaching with Paula forced me to re-evaluate certain existent thought and behavioral patterns, pushing me to move out of my comfort zone, resulting in it being an invigorating and exciting challenge.

She has a reassuring, ‘gentle and easy’ approach and her commitment and dedication is unquestioning and unwavering. The patience and kindness with which Paula guided me has and will continue to have a positive impact on my life and those around me.”

“A ‘WOW’ to my coach Paula! What a beautiful journey with you. I always thought I was in touch with myself, but my goodness, these coaching sessions with you took me out of my victimhood and stuckness (which I was totally unaware of when I started my first session), to knowing myself, my values, my strengths and showing up as my true authentic self, with complete clarity. Free of my inner blabber and insecurities.

Wow, how wonderful it is to now get in touch with the feeling of standing in my power. Thank you beautiful Paula, I am grateful that our paths crossed. I also learned so much from Paula, as a mentor, wanting to become a coach myself. It was truly valuable.”

“Would like to thank Paula for all that she has done. A commendable coach, as she has helped me realize what true potential and self-belief one can have.

The significant impact was, through self-awareness, being able to identify when my “EGO” was influencing my decisions thus in turn allowing me to lead and empower my staff more effectively while creating a less stressful environment for myself and the people around me.”

“Coaching supported me to see the negative thought patterns and automatic responses to situations that had become ingrained in my subconscious mind.

I began to work on my goals and become accountable not to someone else but to myself. I stepped out of my narrow point of view and saw things more holistically and factually.

The results were quick, my self-perception changed, I now have more meaningful friendships, I believe in myself more and have started challenging myself and taking risks, whilst ignoring my fears. I lost weight and am enriching my life with meaningful activities that inspire and motivate me.”

“I learned to embrace my strengths, and to be self-compassionate. Paula helped me with forgiving myself. It was a very powerful session with lots of stuff coming “loose”. I was then able to see and deal with them. I also had an amazing breakthrough in realizing that food was one of my self-punishment methods, from overeating to not eating. I know now why I do this and am able to work on it because I learned to love myself more. I am still on my journey to a better and healthier Irene. It is not always easy but with everything I have learned about myself, with Paula’s help, I am able to cope better, be more truthful with myself and handle life a lot better than I used to.”

“When I first started the coaching sessions I didn’t even know what my strengths were, where my life was heading and what I wanted my life to be like. I was confused and holding on to the past mistakes, listening to negative voices within ignoring positive ones.
Procrastination and fear of the unknown were my biggest challenges coupled by relationship mishandling.

However I’m proud to say through coaching I view life in a totally different way and every time I come across a hurdle I tell myself that I can overcome it.

Thanks Paula for the wonderful tools you have equipped me with. I now lead a totally encouraging and positive life.”

“The biggest impact that coaching has had on my life is…that I see my life in a much more positive light and all my close relationships have improved drastically!

Paula stood for my greatness and has made me aware of so many new possibilities. She is kind and friendly and made the sessions very comfortable and worthwhile..”
