Do you need a listening ear?
I'm listening to your story
"I'm listening to your story" would actually be something I wouldn't offer if these times were different and if we felt we could pour our hearts out to one another. Fortunately, there are some who do find a listening ear, but for others it' s not so obvious. Waiting lists of psychologists are long, while psychologists also say that many people often come to tell their story, to be heard.
If people would feel safe with friends or family, they would tell them what's in their hearts or on their minds. It is often said that in these times we are more connected (globally and online) than ever. And at the same time, we feel more alone and disconnected than we ever felt.
Do you feel alone too?
Do you need a listening ear?
Are you grieving or do you feel a deep sadness in your heart?
Do you have the feeling no one understands you?
Or do you feel no one listens to what you have to say?
Are you scared of the judgment of others when you speak your truth?
Do you have a need to share your story with someone?
Do you have the feeling you are carrying a lot on your shoulders?
I am here for you! And after I have listened to your story, you will feel lighter and relieved. Because of that there may arise more clarity and an opening in your heart. Even some healing might have occurred. There is a magical power and healing strength that happens when we feel seen and heard. It comes with a peace.
Sometimes we even don't realize we just needed someone to really listen to us without judgment and with a loving heart, for us to be able to let something go, to move forward, to heal, to feel joy again, to have trust again or to believe again in what is possible.
What is the purpose of this session?
The purpose of this session is not necessarily to "do something" or to bring about change, the aim is to BE, together, in a place where everything is welcome. A place where you can tell your story, where I create a safe space, without judgment and provide firmness and stability like a mountain. A place where I am a listening ear, give you attention, where I listen lovingly and try to understand you and your situation.
In this session you tell your story. And I listen.
The story you share can be your life story, it can be what you struggle with, what bothers you, what hurts you, what you fear, what happened to you, what you don't understand, something you want to tell someone, something you've never told anyone before, something you'd rather tell someone who doesn't know you, it could be anything, anything is welcome.
Hi! I'm Ama!
When I was in primary school, I always was the person who was 'in between' conflicts and never in it. I was not bullied, I was not the bully. I understood where people were coming from, even if they had opposing views. A lot of times I became the 'go to' person, because people knew they would find a non-judgmental listening ear. Some people would share their story, others would cry. But always they left feeling lighter or as if they knew what they could do. In high school it wasn't any different. Even after high school, people kept on approaching me.
I am sure this has to do with the fact that I really listen to people.
I don't listen to react right away, I like to listen to understand, without judgment. I give them space and I respect where they are at.
Listening to people so that they eventually feel better and feel a relief is one of the things that is most natural to me. I would love to listen to you and your story, too!
Why should you choose a 'listening ear' session?
This is about YOU and your need to tell someone your story.
In my listening and presence, without judgment, healing can also take place. All emotions are welcome. Emotions sometimes just want to be seen, to be heard, to be felt. They can have a place in this session. It is sometimes underestimated how much healing there is in someone who talks and someone else who listens lovingly and respectfully, without reacting.
In contrast to other coaching sessions, this session is almost a kind of ritual where I listen with all presence and where your wellbeing is our focus. The focus is not to ask questions, the focus is to listen with all my heart and to give you all my love. There is space for you and for what you are going through. I hold space for you, for your story and for your healing.
If you like, I can ask you questions if it's difficult to get your story out or if you need this. I can also give you my perspective after you shared things. Yet I only do this if you ask this. It is a different thing to ask questions or give perspectives than to simply listen consciously and with love. The ultimate goal of this session is that I listen to you and you can tell your story.
How does it work?
This session takes place through a video call via Zoom at an agreed time.
There is approximately 1 hour for you to tell your story. Then we have 30 minutes left for a post-conversation, depending on what you need. This can be to briefly discuss together how it was or how you can proceed with something, some questions can be asked, a short meditation can be done. We decide together how those last 30 minutes look like to conclude the session in a good way.
Everything that is being said in the session stays between us & within the session.
It's possible for me to open up the space for you to share your story with an opening prayer and inviting in our ancestors and other spiritual helpers. Not everyone wants this, so I leave the option to you. When you book the session you can let me know what you prefer.
The session costs 55 euros.
If you are really looking for guidance, then a coaching program might be more for you. There also could be a follow up conversation/coaching after the session of sharing your story.
Instead of having a Zoom session, there is also the possibility to have a 1 hour chat (Whatsapp/Telegram) or an e-mail session, but then it is slightly different and it becomes more a conversation. If you are interested in the chat or e-mail session, then I advice you to go the intuitive coaching page.
