YOU ARE NOT ALONE
My name is Monika Ray, and I work as a Life and Career Coach for Expat Professionals. I am here to give you my support so that you can build a better life with confidence and courage.
You deserve whatever you desire.
And I know you can get it, if you really want.

Thanks to sessions with Monika I learnt to be more positive. I understood that all bad and negative situations which are happening to all of us are to give us good lessons to teach us something. Each session was amazing and very emotional and concentrated on me- this is what I needed to slow down for a moment and think of me. After each meeting I had a lot of energy and motivation and completely different vision of the things we were working on during sessions. It was really very great! Thank you, Monika!

Monika is the best ally to have in your personal development journey. If you need clarity on your goals, transform your dream objectives into realistic actions, build confidence and motivation, and start acting for your own benefit.

I have had the great pleasure of working with Monika for a long time. As a coach myself, I value her commitment, knowledge and individual approach to each topic even more. Each time I have a feeling of being taken care of, and I know that I can entrust 200% to Monika with every subject. Monika’s inquisitiveness and skilful conduct of the session led me to wonderful discoveries and reflections. What can I say, full professionalism!!!

Monika is a passionate advocate of life coaching. Monika’s drive, energy and enthusiasm make her coaching imaginative, intuitive and easy to converse. Her obvious expertise is gained from her depth of knowledge in life coaching. Monika’s coaching was the best I have ever been.
Excellent coach! Great talent!
I highly recommend her.

Monika is a fairy godmother from the real fairytales. She doesn’t just wave her wand to will your problems away, she gently helps you along the way as you face your fears and learn to rely on your strengths. Monika creates a safe space for your self-expression, doubts and existential questions. You can talk to her about life. You can talk to her about death. You can be yourself in her presence and be accepted.
Ana Kathleen Gauthier, US September 2023
Working with Monika is a great experience. Her intuitive understanding of people, combined with her commitment to accountability, sets her apart. She doesn’t simply provide you with answers, she equips you with frameworks to uncover your own solutions. I can’t recommend Monika enough for anyone seeking a career coach who guides with insight, supports with dedication, and challenges assumptions along the way. Thank you, Monika, for your invaluable guidance!

Just one session with Monika has profoundly changed my life. She speaks with caring, kindness and compassion, but also honesty where honesty is needed, as in my case. I needed someone with an outside perspective to realign my own perspective. Instead of focusing on what’s wrong in the here and now, she encouraged me to imagine a future that I want and then figure out the steps about how to get there. There are certain aspects of my life that she reframed in a way that helped me to see them more clearly. These small steps have blossomed into big changes. I’m more confident and socially active now, and I have clear plans about where I want to go with my life. The visualisation exercise is something that I really hold onto on days when I’m feeling a bit lost or low, and it never fails to give me a boost. I never imagined that signing up to her expat survey would have such a huge impact, but I’m so very glad I did it!
Harness your roller coaster
From time to time, we all go through difficult and turbulent times, despite the crazy efforts of the modern world to present life as a never ending, colourful and joyful adventure.
Life is like a roller coaster, but we are not always on the high.
The question is: how can we use the ups and downs, and the related emotions of joy, sadness, anger or fear for our personal growth and wellbeing?
What counts is the power of your mind
In the coaching process, I work with the knowledge that every person has a great, internal potential for change. You know yourself best. You know your needs, your beliefs, and your blind spots – even though sometimes you may not be aware they exist.
As Mahatma Gandhi said:
“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”
How can I support you?
Relationships & self-confidence
Work – a source of satisfaction and fulfilment
Facing life’s transitional moments
Take a break to see yourself
Even if you do not know what tomorrow brings, you can stay firm and honest with yourself. You can build your strength and confidence through making your own, independent choices and through acting wisely. This way you create your own path and your own response to life.
However, before you act, you need to stop, take your time and think about it. Seeing things from a broader perspective will open your mind and bring new ideas. This will help you to build a strategy for change. You will see more clearly what steps you need to take to achieve your objectives and to live a better, more conscious life.
“Man often becomes what
he believes himself to be.”
