Are you living with one or more long-term health condition?

Are you currently struggling with managing your workload because you are constantly tired and/or in pain?

Are you worrying what the people you work with will think of you, if you ask for adjustments to be made so that you can better manage your health and your workload?

Are you feeling lonely and resentful because you worry what others may think of you because of your health condition?

Are you stressing out because you need to take time out of work to attend medical/hospital appointments?

Are you busying yourself with work to distract yourself from dealing with your health?

Are you finding it difficult to “recharge” once you get home and feel you are in that never ending cycle where you work hard and collapse in a heap when home?

Are you resenting your body and your long-term health condition because it is affecting all the things you used to enjoy (example: hobbies/sports, your work, and your relationships)?

Are you asking yourself…  “What have I done to deserve this health condition”?

Are you blaming “others” for the way you are feeling?

Are you feeling sad, angry, perhaps often tearful and keep telling yourself you need to “snap out of it”?

What if I told you, this is a “normal reaction to an abnormal situation”?

You see, I have been there myself!  

I understand how you may be feeling, and I have made it my mission to help others who are going through something similar.

If you, would you like to better manage yourself whilst living with a long-term health condition, so that you can:

  1. continue to be productive,
  2. have more energy so that you can enjoy the things you do,
  3. have better relationships (both at work and in your personal life),
  4. challenge yourself to experience “new” things in your life,
  5. feel calm and at peace with yourself and
  6. much more!

Then it’s time to contact me so that I can help you to do just that!

Email me directly: vanessa@vanessavajana.com for further information.

Speak soon and in the meantime, remember… Be Kind to Yourself!

Vanessa 🙂

Vanessa listened to what I had to say and, just by her doing that, I was able to look inside myself closely and find answers I needed.

She pointed me in the right direction. I was able to take action and break a circle: I took some steps forward that will, hopefully, bring me closer to achieve my goal.

I found her professional but, at the same time, caring and approachable. She speaks two languages!

I would definitively recommned her to anyone feeling somewhat “stuck” in their life.

Vanessa’s direct but encouraging enquiries into the roots of my habitual defence mechanisms enabled me to see that other views are possible.

The support, exercises and feedback Vanessa provided enabled my “habitual” thought processes to change. This has resulted in better relationships with and understanding of others due to a shift in perceptions.

I have learnt that by practicing being good to myself, it becomes a habit and a way of being.  When I have felt sad, depressed and lonely I have realised that it doesn’t have to be this way and that I can put into practice what I have learnt. This practice is life changing.

When we are going through challenging times we often unknowingly (or knowingly) use language that describes our experience in a negative or victim mode.

I would call this a … Continue reading Have you noticed the language you use? / Hai notato il linguaggio che usi?

Sometimes… receiving a diagnosis (a label) for your change in health can be a blessing as you have confirmation that what you have/are experiencing is “real”.
