My name is Roberta Meli, I am a certified Clarity Life Coach and Counselor.
My mission is to help my clients to get clarity, get unstuck and build a powerful driving vision for their life and career.
I was born and raised in Rome and spent most of my adulthood in London where I worked for the highly demanding and fast paced corporate world of Investment Banking. I moved to the Netherlands in 2010 when my career switched to the Oil and Gas industry.
After 15 years in the corporate world, one glorious day I decided that it was time to make THE change and follow my heart desire to be doing something meaningful with my life that could somehow contribute in making a positive change in the world.
So with that thought in mind I sat down and asked myself “What do I Love?” “What am I gifted with? after thinking about it carefully for a while and really listening to what my heart was telling me, the answer came to me; “I love seeing people living life with Awareness, Purpose, Focus and Confidence” and “I am gifted with an innate ability to see opportunities in adversities, being accountable for my own life, falling graciously and standing back up more determined than ever with a new refreshed vision and plan for my life, I’m an incurable optimistic and I refuse to give up on my dreams and I would love to use my own life experience to inspire and motivate others to pursue such life” and so I had fund my life purpose and a new vision for my life was built. In 2015 I got certified by the Academy of Counseling and Life Coaching of The Hague and stared my own Coaching practice with the mission of serving and helping as many people as possible with living that magnificent life they were born to live.
I love the sea, animals and my childlike sense of wonder, which takes me on a NeverEnding fascinating journey to discover new things about myself, about others and about the world.
Mindfulness is a big part of my life, I have been practicing meditation and visualization for over 20 years and I incorporate some elements of it in my coaching.
How I Can
I believe that having a clear vision for your life is the driving force to living an authentic life, by “authentic” I mean a life that is “yours 100 %” NOT a blurred version of it, NOT an accidental version of it but a life YOU have chosen for yourself and you feel accountable for and PROUD of.
Let me tell you a story...
"Once up on a time there was a 20 years old Italian girl who moved to the UK to follow her dreams.
She stock to her vision and one step at the time, with sacrifices and hard work, 15 wonderful years later she had accomplished all the things she wanted to accomplish and she felt that life was great!
Unfortunately though due to an unfortunate unfolding of events at the age of 34 she found herself back in her family home in Italy with absolutely nothing, except the 17 moving boxes she had brought back with her!
She spent the first month back feeling sorry for herself, heartbroken and totally lost, then one morning she woke up and she decided to stop feeling sorry for herself and to start looking for new opportunities that will bring her a way out from that unpleasant situation.
To make a long story short, she ended up getting an amazing job in Italy (some small sacrifices were required but was totally worth it!) and a year later she was having a job interview with a big international company in The Hague which came to her through the company she was working for in Italy, she got the job and moved to the Netherlands and THAT was the beginning of a new fresh start, an opportunity to rebuild her life from scratch as she wanted it to be... a new wonderful chapter of her life!"
Now, what do you think it would have happened if she thought “oh but I am in my mid-thirties is too late to start over in a foreign country “,
“I don’t know anyone in the Netherlands, what I am going to do there on my own” what if she gave up on her dreams or gave in to fear or ignored her vision of what she wanted her life to be....well let me tell you...that girl was me and every day I feel so grateful and so damn proud for not giving up on myself. Moving to the Netherlands brought me where I am right now in my life and there is no other place I would rather be right now!
So my heartfelt message to you is KNOW what you want TAKE responsibilities for your life DON'T give in to Fear BUILD the focus and confidence you need and GO for it!
If this resonates with you, if you wish you had that clarity on what you want and a powerful vision to give you the purpose and the drive to achieve it ....than I am very grateful that we have found each other!
