Hello amazing YOU!
Let me tell you a little about myself...
My name is Ilaria Storch, I graduated in Advertising and I believe that having worked with brands and also as a journalist in this area, has made me very sensitive to people´s needs, likings and Desires.
So it felt very natural when I turned to coaching, first with myself, by fine-tuning my personal and professional life, so that I can be of good service to you. I believe in making progress through small steps, focus and FUN - being positive and having faith that we can see problems and challenges through a different perspective.
The fact that I travelled a lot, and still do, and also love to stay in the same place a lot for longer periods, gives me a good understanding of why we need settled down time and moving around time.
I chose to raise my family in Brazil, with my husband, we have two millennials, a daughter and a son, who married an amazing girl. I love the warmth and proximity of family - I come from an Italian family, from Turin, after all and yes, I love my two yorkies.
I studied with people from many places, at school, when that was not so commom, and I get the Latin way and the need to connect, specially when abroad.
So we can connect and chat either in English, Italian or Portuguese - and if you feel the need, practice more your English too.
For many years I worked with English translations and art illustrations and I feel all those skills were directing me to coaching - I really like to listen to people´s stories and support and collaborate with them, so that they can find their capacities and reach their goals and Desires.
The world has intensified its nomad characteristics, once again, which is wonderful as well as a bit scary sometimes. On the bright side, we have great technology that helps us to reach out and not feel stranded or lonely.
A little story on big inspiration and action!
While on an amazing learning and coaching trip to Vancouver, where I had the opportunity to take my daughter with me, we went sightseeing, on the intervals of the Retreat I was attending. After watching the FlyOver Canada film experience, at Canada Place, we decided to go for a long walk.
Just after we were leaving the facility, I saw a young woman on her cell phone, and when we passed near here, I noticed she was crying. I also noticed, when we were closer, that she was speaking the language of the country I was born in - Portuguese, from Brazil!
As she hung up the cell phone, I approached her calmly and said hi! I explained to her we also spoke Portuguese, the reasons we were in Vancouver and we started chatting - she seemed so grateful and happy to open up to our friendly presence and conversation!
It turned out she was a young student, in her twenties, missing her family terribly - she was on the phone with her mom - and was having double thoughts on her decision to travel so far away to study. I got to talk to her about what an amazing opportunity she was living - in a beautiful city and country, that soon she would be speaking the new language and making new friends. I really spent quite some time uplifting her and helping her find alternatives and inspiration, as well as helping her remember why she was there in the first place - calling in her vision again!
We said goodbye and she walked away with a smile on her face!
This is what I love to do - to uplift, support and help people like you, so that you can find strength to reach your amazing Vision!
Whatever it takes, you can reach out and get started!
