Jadzia has helped countless people overcome challenges and implement change to create the lives they want.
Here's what a few of them have to say about the way Jadzia works - and how it worked for them.
"For years I'd harboured dreams of being a writer but was too scared to sit and down and actually write something. It was more comfortable not to try at all, than to try and fail. I was completely stuck and it infected every aspect of my life. Jadzia encouraged me to take my ambitions seriously, helped me silence my inner critic, gave me the confidence to start and the belief to keep going. I've since signed a six-figure deal with Orion, one of the UK's largest publishers and now write full time. Life goal achieved. Life a lot happier!"
"My life coaching relationship with Jadzia began almost 2 years ago. When I began life coaching I have to confess that I held a number of prejudices and perhaps a healthy scepticism against the process. Nevertheless, I felt as though my life was adrift, with little purpose or focus. I also felt miserable in both my professional and personal life but was I unsure how to get out of the rut I was in. In addition to this I was also prone to flares of eczema, which I am certain were associated with my stress levels at the time.
My life coaching journey has been one that has been wonderfully empowering, enriching and liberating. Many fantastic things have happened to me as a direct result of coaching and there are times when I look at the person I am now and hardly recognise the one from the past. I’ve fulfilled and achieved so much in both my personal and professional life, some of which I’d have never thought possible and have gained a really useful toolkit of strategies to use in life! I also feel much happier and content and haven’t had an episode of eczema for eighteen months now. For me life coaching has become an essential part of my ongoing developmental needs and I consider it a worthwhile investment in me.".
"I met Jadzia two years ago, at a point where I could see no future in my life – at all. With Jadzia's constant help and inspiration - I have switched from a job that sucked the life force from me to setting up my own business, which I believe in passionately. My personal and professional life has changed beyond recognition. Jadzia has helped me achieve this through her unique caring, structured advice and guidance. She is a wealth of information, resources and techniques that empower you. I honestly believe that without Jadzia, my life would not be filled with such abundance, promise and joy as it is now. To sum up - Jadzia goes beyond....".
"I found out about Jadzia by chance one day at my local gym and I haven’t looked back since. Jadzia’s leaflet saying ‘are you fed up of being fed up’ struck a chord with me because at the time that’s exactly how I felt. My career has fast tracked from Team Leader to Senior Manager in the City, to also owning my own Business and Jadzia has helped me deal with and excel every step of the way, she is my secret weapon.
I trust Jadzia implicitly and know that I can email her or pick up the phone and she always finds time to coach me through those crucial split second moments that the corporate work environment poses. In addition to this Jadzia helps me focus on my life strategy ensuring my career, relationships and home continuously meet my expectations.
I found Jadzia 5 years ago and she has been with me every step of the way so I can truly live the life I always wanted, she has also ‘saved my corporate life’ on many occasion…...I’m not letting her go!"
"It would be hard to express enough gratitude to Jadzia, or indeed describe just how our work on my journey of self discovery re-shaped my life. My inability to break out of the cycles of my own behaviour had kept me a prisoner for most of my adult life. I was encased in denial and unable to see the worsening impact of my addictive behaviour. Jadzia helped me to find the courage and conviction to claim the full measure of health, power, and personal fulfilment she convinced me already lived inside.
Things are going well, the future is getting clearer- in practical ways. I work hard currently using the steps to truly try and change- where I get stuck- in motivation, motives and old addictive patterns.
Not working is both a blessing and a curse seemingly. Pea soup- your expressive description- except plenty of words and not enough action. But it has led me to look at the core of my worst habits and try build new ones. Somehow financially I managed to survive- and a slow turn firstly now to look for low paid work of any description, but hopefully at the same time back towards art college and lecturing. It's a goal I guess- and I'm right in there- just trying to make the next move forwards."
"When I first met Jadzia my life was in a mess. I had no friends and my relationships with my family were fraught and difficult. Everything I said seemed to come out the wrong way. I was also suffering from low self-esteem and often felt I was invisible. I had an eating disorder and was seriously overweight.
Since working with Jadzia I have received an honours degree with the Open University and I have been re-united with my family. Last year I spent a marvellous Christmas with my husband, step-son, daughter and grand-children.
This year I am writing a book about binge-eating and am planning to give lectures to parents and children on the dangers of yo-yo dieting.
Thanks to Jadzia my life has been transformed."
"If I had been told 2 years ago that aged 27 I would have a life coach, I would have laughed. Firstly I wouldn’t have really known what one was, but secondly I thought, as most people do, that you ‘sort yourself out’, ‘get over things,’ ‘cope’.
But in reality this time 2 years ago I wasn’t coping, and when I look back I have never really coped with life and the things that it throws at you. I had been in my second violent and destructive relationship. I was internally and externally bullying myself the way that girls at school had bullied me. I saw myself as a fat pig and was binge eating and then making myself to sick afterwards. I had successfully passed my teaching degree, but was working as a supply teacher with no prospects of the permanent position that I longed for.
Nearly two years on, I am now in a happy, stable relationship looking to buy a house with someone that I love and who I know loves me. He does not call me names, make me feel bad about myself or hit me. I have a full time permanent position at a school that I love and we have just had an ofsted inspection and been graded an outstanding school. I can not lie and say that I am now one hundred per cent happy with my body image, or that there aren’t occasions when I begin to speak to myself in an incredibly negative way. BUT I do now have ways to deal with things. In the time that I have been receiving coaching from Jadzia, my life has completely changed. I have come to learn the importance of positive thinking, of dreaming of what I want, writing it down and making it happen myself.
When I look back at the things that I wrote during my first few sessions with Jadzia, I can see that with her guidance I have achieved almost every one. I wrote down key aspirations for a year ahead, things that I never thought were actually possible, but it was fun to dream them, and they happened. I made them happen. And most of them happened within 6 months!
Jadzia has made me see the importance of me and my control on my own life and future. I can now understand good, positive, loving relationships and can say that I deserve to be in one. I have learnt to not put myself down, I wouldn’t put anyone else down in that way and so why should I do it to myself. I have begun to wholly recognise my own achievements and to celebrate them. I now know when I am unhappy about something and instead of getting angry or upset with myself I now talk about them and ask for what I need. I have techniques to help me deal with situations and turn them to my advantage. I know what my good habits are and what happens to me when I let these slide, I know what I can and can’t tolerate and what needs to be done to reduce my tolerations. I know how to write and release feelings that are much better on paper than in my soul.
I had tried traditional counselling about 9 years ago after a different violent, abusive relationship but this did not work for me. I sat there pouring my heart out while someone nodded and asked occasional questions, offered me anti-depressants and told me I then had to wait another 3 months for an appointment. This is not life coaching. Jadzia does listen when I need to pour my heart and will ask the questions or notice things that I do like the way my breathing changes, she may just remain silent for what seems like forever, but its during the silence that what is being said actually begins to make sense. Life coaching is far more practical than counselling. You have to do the work, you have to make the changes, you are encouraged in an indescribable way to live your life the way that everybody should, happy, confident, and successful in everything that you want to achieve.
Thank you Jadzia and I look forward to our success in the future."
"I first met Jadzia when a close friend decided that my despair was just too great- an alcoholic father followed by losing my wife had finally taken its toll.
The work with Jadzia was tough, there were many tears and there were times when I just felt too tired to talk. I knew, however, that I was working with someone who genuinely cared about my mental health and we worked through many painful issues together.
I continue to move towards emotional wholeness and am now running my own business and looking after my three children unaided.
Thank you Jadzia for your part in my recovery!".
"Jadzia's guidance and encouragement took me to a job I love, control of my finances and self confidence in twelve months."
"Coaching is tough but the rewards tremendous - a change in career, quality relationships, financial security - and the time and energy for things I never thought possible."
"My career has gone from strength to strength since I started coaching with Jadzia. I've learnt to enjoy so much more of my life without taking anything away from anyone else."
"It is hard to put into words how much Jadzia Kopiel has helped me grow into the person I am now. The greatest gift I have received from Jadzia in our work together is that she has guided and encouraged ME myself to dig deep and unearth my own answers. I believe this personal discovery to be far more powerful than someone simply telling you! This ongoing journey is both empowering and joyful but not without challenge. I first visited Jadzia during an unsettling period of change and readjustment following my unhappy return from Hong Kong with my husband and two sons. Jadzia helped me figure out "the wood from the trees" and encouraged me to focus on what positive changes I needed to bring into my life to achieve my goals both personal and professional. She is warm,.caring and supportive whilst at the same time honest and unafraid to encourage you to challenge yourself and those long held views which may not be serving you well. As a result of my coaching sessions I have experienced a significant boost to my self esteem, a far greater confidence in the validity of my own opinions, and I feel far more able to address challenging situations which I had previously shied away from. I have a far more clear sense of self and who I am. Consequently I have taken more control of my life and with this renewed sense of 'me' I am now embarking on training to be a self esteem coach. When things start to slip, and confusion arises, I am increasingly able to draw on the tools that Jadzia has given me and bring myself back onto a more even keel. She continues to be an invaluable sounding board. Furthermore Jadzia's wise words and wide ranging experience helped me to guide and support my twelve year old son as he navigated his own readjustment to a new school and country. This was a very challenging and sometimes distressing time in his life. I feel immense joy and satisfaction when I reflect on the happy, well adjusted and resilient child he is now."
"I cannot thank Jadzia enough for the positive changes she has enabled me to make in my life and for those around me. I am blessed to have her in my life."
"Jadzia has looked after me for many many years, beginning at a crucial time in my life, when, after the death of a child, a divorce and then a very wobbly period in my second marriage, a friend told me that she was about to seek help from a Life Coach. Life Coach? This was in the 1990s and I had never heard of life coaching. How did we choose Jadzia? We got together the names of several people offering this service and we listened to each of their voices on their answer machines - we chose Jadzia because she sounded calm, confident and there was just a tiny hint of something else. We were not sure what it was. But as soon as I started to work with her I realised that above and beyond Jadzia's highly professional and common sense approach to my problems, there was always the funny side, the ability to get me back to some sort of reality and to enable me to laugh at my wilder gyrations into fantasy. Things were often bad but there was always a way through the mire. Since I met Jadzia I have (sorry we have) managed to cement a better relationship with my children, my step-children and my beautiful grandchildren. I have also learned how to rub along with my husband - sometimes happy, sometimes livid with him, sometimes sad - but still together. Jadzia also helped me to keep going when I was studying for a BA and then an MA. She was there when I was co-writing a book that has been published. I now arrange lectures and exhibitions. But as the years passed surprise surprise I became old (I keep having to remind myself that I am nearing my 80s because in my mind I don't feel aged) and Jadzia has helped me to adjust to my new lifestyle. In my mind I am still 38 years old but my body has gone on ahead and I have high blood pressure, diabetes, and a touch of rheumatoid arthritis. Yes - take less salt and keep off the cakes and walk walk walk. These are just part of the routine that Jadzia has helped me to set up and which, when I occasionally ring for help because life is getting at me and I am about to explode, or implode, she helps me to put my routine back in place. Peace! I will always be grateful to Jadzia - she helped to save my sanity. In my case she has truly been a Coach for Life."
