While working with Andrea Gawron in coaching, I really appreciated her human approach and practical view on the individual topics we addressed during our sessions. Her practical experience in a corporate environment was very helpful to me and she was able to give me direction so that I could perceive my progress during our collaboration. I would also like to thank her for her helpfulness, honesty and the way she is able to pass on her experience."

Andrea was able to grasp my personality perfectly and showed me a lot of things that today help me not only in my work, but also in my private life. Some moments were very challenging, but the reward was the subsequent "all puzzles fitting in" and the eye opening outcome. It was an experience that I recommend to anyone who is interested in developing their abilities.
I met Mrs. Andrea as she was recommended to me. I didn't know exactly what to expect from coaching, so even before we met in person, I went through her website and watched the interview that Mrs. Andrea gave to a Czech Radio. I could already tell by her voice that he was an empathetic person. After the personal meeting, I could only confirm my thought, that if I want to move forward internally, you have to trust your coach and sit down with him . And this is exactly what I felt with Mrs. Andrea. It was unbelievable how deep we got during the coaching sessions. I left each session full of positive energy and with the feeling that a new path had opened up for me. Ms. Andrea, thank you so much for being the person who helped me find my new path.
I am very happy that I had Andy as my mentor. Her approach suited me perfectly. She is friendly, empathetic, knows how to listen, understand, and lead a person to solutions, important realisations and necessary changes in life. It has countless quality resources, enriching information and tools/exercises that have allowed me to move forward. However, what seems to me most important is that she really and sincerely wants to help people, thereby gaining the trust of clients and providing them with the best room for growth.
After a period of several disappointments and failures and at the same time before finishing my studies, I was unsure about the direction of my life. I needed to put my thoughts straight and find myself again. Andrea listened attentively and at the same time gradually led me to complete the tasks on the way to my, at first unclear, goals. During the session, I figured out a lot of things and began to think about them in a completely different way than before. I learnt to appreciate myself and what I do more, I compared my own values and clarified what motivates me on my way. Andrea was demanding, I often left the session exhausted by what I revealed in myself, but all the more I knew that next time I would be a little more relieved. She was empathetic, responsive and devoted a lot of time to me, for which I thank her very much.

What began as an experiment last September ended after four months with me clarifying my life attitudes and priorities, and achieving greater self-confidence and assurance in my personal acts.All of this is thanksto my coach, Andrea Gawron, who had infinite patience with me at every meeting and was willing to listen even to those stories that led to dead ends. But we were always able to return to a point that was important for the set goal and then maintain this direction. I can say with certainty that it was energy, time and money well spent. It was a great experience that I can highly recommend.
Andrea is first and foremost a great person, which is one of the main prerequisites of a good coach! She won't give you instructions, but she will help you find the way to your happier SELF and a calmer mind. I can really highly recommend her...
I approached Andrea at a time when I
didn't know where to go and it was clear to me that I wouldn't be able to find
the way on my own. Thanks to her support and guidance, I managed to clarify
many things, align my thoughts, goals, and above all, align myself. Her
understanding, ability to relate to my situation, her methods and the way she guided
me during our sessions were very compassionate and pleasant. Because of this, I
learnt a lot, I changed a lot and I am really grateful to Andrea for that.
Thank you so much for the great cooperation and for what a guide you are to me,
Andy and I have known each other for some time. I knew she was a great girl: we often exercised together and she always emanated an incredible energy. I knew what she did, but I honestly hadn't thought she could help me, and I was somewhat sceptical towards her work. But after 15 years working for the same company, I decided to make a major change and start again in a new field, new surroundings and with new people. Unfortunately, I had underestimated the whole situation, and I lost myself and my self-confidence completely. So in the end I sought out her help. And it was the best thing I could have done for my life.
In the meantime, the coronavirus crisis had broken out, during which I remained without a job. Under normal circumstances, I would definitely have fallen into depression, because it was the first time in my life that I had been unemployed. But with Andrea's help, I suddenly realised that life is about much more than work, and that it is beautiful. After each session, I felt full of energy and joy, and I felt that I could do anything I set my mind to: even if I had wanted to fly to the moon :-) Andrea helped me to understand myself better, to find meaning in life outside work, and in fact to realise what I really want in life. And I had thought this was something I could not achieve at 48 years of age.
Andy is intuitive and empathetic, she will help you to understand yourself and see how core human instincts and habits work, aspects which I had been convinced I could never change. But I was wrong: you can with Andy! It's not an easy journey, but it can be done. My sessions with Andy showed me that I am not "too old" for anything, that life is worth living, and it totally transformed my perspective on the world - in the best way possible. That's why I can never recommend and praise Andrea enough! If you're hesitating, then go for it and you won't regret it.
I've known Andy for a while. I have
to say that I was quite sceptical at the beginning. I've already been to a few
therapists before, but no one has been able to help me. At first, I had trouble
opening up and being completely honest. I was afraid I would say or do
something wrong. That changed quite a bit after a few sessions. With Andy, I
was able to solve even the deepest problems. I also had several "whoah
moments". I thought that at the end of my journey I would be different, I
would feel better - and I have to say that all of this came true. Something
different than I expected happened, but what happened was even better. The
thing is that Andy doesn't tell you how to live, but teaches you how you can
help yourself if needed. It's not just for a short-term solution, this can
change your whole life. What she teaches you, the procedures and problem
solving, is just great! I finally found someone who taught me how to be happier
in life! I would love to say thank you for that!
Before working with Andrea, I had theoretical ideas about coaching, but after a few sessions it became clear to me that practice is a little different after all. Andrea has an amazing gift of instilling trust from the first moment - you don't decide whether you will "reveal" something about yourself during the interviews, even on topics that you don't talk much about with anyone. And if you don't want to delve into an area, Andrea doesn't push you. Although I initially entered the coaching with different goals, in the end, thanks to Andy, I discovered that I needed to change completely different things in order to be happier and more confident in my life. Andrea has been my guide all along on the way to change - especially to change the way I look at myself, which is something I couldn't break through for many years. And she also managed to show me that it doesn't matter how old you are or what you've been through. One is never too old or "too mature" to change.

Andrea was absolutely perfect as a personal coach, precise and very empathetic. During each session, she was able to accurately estimate my mental state with her friendly and at the same time professional approach. That is, how much and to what depth it is possible to work with my personality in a specific session. I also appreciate the guidance in setting individual tasks that led me to the set goals. Despite my initial scepticism about coaching as such, I have to admit that the coaching sessions under the leadership of Andrea exceeded my expectations in every way.
First of all, I should probably say that I am not exactly a "model" client. I have, or rather had, a problem with putting things off until the last minute, which I managed to "demonstrate" several times during the session with Andrea. However, we worked together on it and a huge improvement followed soon after. It's incredible what possibilities and solutions I came up with thanks to Andrea. I am more confident not only in making decisions, but also in my perception of myself. Andrea is a professional through and through, yet she is very human, empathetic and incredibly perceptive. I looked forward to every session with her.

I remember when I heard the term life coach for the first time and thinking to myself wow...what will they think of next to help people out. Thank goodness I am not one of those since I had my life together, a great career, loving family and an optimistic outlook on life.
Therefore it was a little ironic that a few years later when I had a chance to connect and work with a life coach I was blown away on what a huge impact it made on my "perfect" life.
I don't think I understood the concept of a life coach, just thinking it was someone who was a mini psychologist that would try to fix you in a different aspect. I came to realize that a life coach is someone that does not analyze or judge you or dig up the past to fix your future. It is someone that helps you channel your inner energy and insight that you never realized you had.
I won't lie I entered into the first session a little skeptically but willing to give it a shot. After our first meeting I got a better idea of the process and what would be going on over the next sessions.
I was given some light homework which was the wheel of balance and at that point I realized my life was not so balanced as I had imagined. I was eager to continue with the process to find out more.
During the course of the next few weeks Andrea facilitated my unpredictable schedule with different Skype sessions and we dove deeper and deeper.
I am a professional pilot and during the assistance in one coaching session I came to the realization of the reason why I love my job so much. I finally understood deep down with the assistance of Andrea that I was co-dependent on this insatiable need to be valued and respected by the people that I worked with because of my low self worth concept. It was like someone struck me with a stick! I had never realized why I had valued my profession and career over family, friends and other things. I was in a wonderful daze as I emerged into this new life as if I had regained a piece of my eyesight, seeing the world in a different light. All thanks to Andrea's spectacular coaching and her channeling the right questions that made me come to this realization all on my own. This newfound awareness allowed me to realize that I was wanting more out of my life and I was just using my job as a bandaid to help stop this feeling of limited connection with people and a fear of being vulnerable with others. This is only one of many aha moments I had during our sessions.
I had been to a few self help classes before but I had never gone into such an internal depth as with the guidance of my life coach.
During the beginning we set up a few goals to work towards and at the end of the program I realized how superficial they were because I was able to get to such a depth I never was able to realize.
Never once did Andrea tell me her opinion or give me some lecture. She evoked this desire to find the true feelings and reasons behind many things in a very safe environment. With the use of her well guided questions she helped me find the answer to them on my own which was such an empowering feeling. My life has been completely transformed by the time that we were able to work with each other.
I am a lot more aware of situations and mainly my attitude and responses to every day things. I have come out of this experience with a profound sense of being and self awareness that I could never have accomplished without the expert guidance of my life coach. I was humbled by this experience and will forever be grateful!! All my thanks and appreciation Andrea Gawron!!!
First of all, I would like to thank Andrea
for sticking with me. I know I've been a very complicated client. I originally
went into this with very different expectations. My idea of coaching was very
naive. But I persevered and I'm grateful for that. I have finally realised what
I expect from my life and where I want to move next. And yes, I had to figure
it out on my own, I know that very well now. 🙂 I am grateful to Andrea
for all this. She's a very empathetic person, yet a pro and a challenging
coach, and she still manages to lighten it all up with her sometimes dark
humour in a very appropriate and fun way.... Thank you.

Andrea was clearly a lucky choice for me. Her direct, purposeful and decisive demeanour created exactly the kind of background I was looking for. Sensitive, with attentive listening and sincere understanding, she was a reliable and dynamic guide. Thanks to her empathy, she chose and supported the right steps towards the goal. Today I look at myself completely differently and I also see my surroundings in different colours. Those who can smile happily at themselves can also spread happiness to others!
Light, joy, optimism, zest for life... Meeting Andrea brought me all this. I would describe it as the "Northern light" or a light that will help illuminate your path when you feel that it is dark all around. Thanks to this charming person, I "kicked" my senses, found a job, started working on my relationships and my health. I finally took off my "black glasses'' and I'm feeling so much better. The main impression from working with Andrea? I can breathe freely again. Thank you, Andy☘
