“Working with Urszula over the past 6 months has been one of the most transformative experiences I have had. I’ve worked with a variety of coaches in my life and Urszula creates a space and container to do deep work like no one else. Her guidance in the sessions on top of the practices she arms her clients with, to do the work outside of the sessions, creates shifts that are foundational and long lasting. Truly a gift.”

She has helped me to see the possibilities, to tap into the wisdom that I already have, to re-frame my questions and perspectives in a way that leads me forward, and for holding me accountable. I will practice the tools she has given me for the rest of my life.
