“I had a great coach. Helped clear out the fog that was surrounding my current situation so that I could see which avenues I could take and continue to move forward with achieving the objectives I have set for myself.”

ANALYST, FINANCE

“I have had the pleasure of working with Mirella for a number of years, so when an opportunity arose for me to select a mentor for my ICF ACC credentialing renewal, my first choice was Mirella. Her approach to coaching is both focused and intuitive, listening beyond the words and asking thought provoking questions. Her mentoring style is in the same vane: deep listening, an emphasis on the ICF Core Competencies and how they relate to various coaching scenarios, and above all, a dedication to letting the mentee find his/her coaching voice within these competencies. The mentee is encouraged to

“I worked with Mirella as my mentor coach and she provided me with a structured coaching program. Her feedback was always very detailed and specific, well balanced between the positive and competencies that required more work. She worked through the 11 competencies ensuring I was mastering each one and practicing until they were well integrated. Mirella is very inspirational, she took my success to heart and I felt I deserved her letter of recommendation at the end of the Program, I felt ready. I would strongly recommend Mirella as a mentor coach to anyone who is working towards the journey

“Mirella provided an exceptional mentor coaching experience. With her support and guidance I was able to see the specific areas where I could develop as a coach but also see what initiated the challenges I was experiencing in those areas. Mirella applied the 11 competencies within our coaching sessions, which allowed me to experience the flow from the receiving end and also be an observer to the process as well. I highly recommend Papillon MDC Inc’s mentoring program if you are interested in improving your coaching skills.”

“I met Mirella when coaching was just an abstract concept for me and she is the one that awoke the coaching passion in me. She has been a constant presence in my coaching journey that started almost 5 years ago, so when the time came, there was nobody else I would chose as a mentor. Her professionalism, her business insight, her easiness to connect with people is what makes dealing with her such a success. As a mentor, she has always been there for me when I was doubting myself as a coach as well as when I was celebrating

“I had the great pleasure of working with Dr. De Civita as my mentor coach while I was completing the Professional and Personal Coach Certification program at Concordia University. The ICF’s 11 core competencies were at the heart of our many discussions, which in turn allowed me to not only better understand these competencies but to integrate them in my coaching with clients and in my everyday life. I greatly appreciated Dr. De Civita’s support during and in-between our mentoring sessions as well as her expert knowledge of all things coaching, her genuine kindness, her constructive feedback and her unconditional

“A compassionate approach, a genuine interest in her mentees and an expert in her field are the first words that come to mind in describing Mirella. Choosing Mirella as a mentor made all the difference for me. I first began my search for a mentor by looking for specific credentials, all of which Mirella possesses. Then, as time progressed, Mirella offered much more than I had anticipated. In the many months we worked together, not only did I rely on her extensive knowledge to learn new theory, practices and skills, but she went above and beyond in the way she

“Mirella mentored me during a period of 6 months while I was studying towards an ICF recognized coaching certification. I must admit it has been one of the most gratifying experiences of my career. During our sessions, Mirella demonstrated unique skills in how she listened carefully to my words and emotions and give me feedback that celebrated what I did well in my coaching sessions with clients yet  pushed me constantly to reflect about one topic, to develop a particular skill, always in the service of the client. Her approach is far from mechanical. It leaves room for you to

“Because of my clinical background, it was imperative for me to find a mentor that was able to help me develop a coaching style that blended my previous work experience with my newer role as an executive coach. I am grateful for Mirella’s support and guidance in helping me identify and develop this “voice” as a coach. ”

“Working with Mirella has been a rewarding experience. Her professionalism, dedication, patience and inspiration have transformed my coaching skills. As a mentee I learned a lot from Mirella, and I highly recommend her mentorship programs.”

“Mirella never ceased to amaze me. I have witnessed her effective coaching before which gave me full confidence in choosing her as my mentor coach. Her ability to detect true meaning and emotions beyond surface, her articulate effective questioning skills and her strong intuition coupled with extensive experience are the key success factors to a superb coach. She has also been tremendously encouraging in her approach which enabled me to unleash the potentials beyond my own belief.”

“In two words: My inspiration! I had the privilege to work with Mirella De Civita as my mentor for my Coaching degree at Concordia University. My mentoring experience with Mirella was extremely useful during my coaching practice. She was my guide during all this process and she always provided great insights that pushed me to the next level. She has a very unique way of providing feedback and creating an atmosphere of trust and connection. I greatly benefited from her examples and observations that helped me with my coaching practice. Looking forward to working with her again.”  “Always surround yourself

“Mirella is an amazing human being and I could not have dreamt of a better mentor coach. While mentoring me as an aspiring coach, she took into account that I was also going through a transition period in my life and that there were sometimes other things coming in between the coaching. Bringing me back to the essence of what it is to be a coach, trusting me and establishing a strong relationship are all elements that allowed me to grow as a coach but also as a person. I would not have been where I am now, would it

“I chose Mirella as my mentor for my PPCC certification course due to her formidable mix of qualifications as both a qualified coach and psychotherapist and was not disappointed. Mirella’s approach was to focus on the core competencies needed for qualification, and her feedback was always rooted in how to notice, and improve these competencies, as the basis for coaching. She was also very practical, using the reality of over 2000 hours of coaching to illustrate how this translated into real life. I also really appreciated the practical discussions on the differences with her other specialty of therapy which were

I loved my coaching with Mirella De Civita. It allowed me identify what I wanted to accomplish and what I have to do to succeed. Mirella helped me to take decisions and make choices. She was a good listener to me and gave me self-confidence in my ability to make choices and find my way. Thanks.

I love the fact that I can quickly get a call with my coach and go over my concern / issue and being able with her guidance to take actions in a very timely manner.

Objective 3rd party viewpoint.

Her enthusiasm, the fact that she understood and was able to break down my issues. The fact that she was able to provide me with tools to resolve those issues.

The advice and different perspective.

At the end of the session I had a plan, step by step of what to do to solve my problem.

First I have already done it. Sometimes you need insight from someone outside of the situation or who isn’t already programmed to think like your current work environment. This is that avenue to get a fresh perspective.

Because it’s an amazing way to gain insight on where you are “stuck” both personally and professionally

Was extremely helpful. Could figure out what to do after only an hour of coaching while I was anxious for so long

It goes beyond coaching; it’s support, challenging my thinking processes, exposing alternatives and potential actions…it’s totally awesome.

1st session with Marisa Murray was very powerful! I thought of it every day now. Looking forward to the next session. Thinking differently ;-)

I was skeptical at first on how for a first time meeting and in 1 hour have a meaningful coaching session. I was proven wrong. We dove right into the topics that I had identified and Marisa was prepared with solutions after just a few additional questions and understanding of my situation.

My coach was professional and easy to talk to.

Helpful to speak to someone.

It helped me to open up a different thought process and techniques to my professional and personal life.

Helpful to speak to someone

Some people can gain a lot from it.

The coaches are skilled and I like the format (by video conference)

It was helpful!

Availabilities when you need

External point of view in our stressful professional life at work.

The coach quickly understood me and was able to provide valuable insight.

I enjoyed that she was prepared to discuss and provide guidance for our review. There was no time wasted trying to understand the issue.

Face to face (virtually) approach Coach experienced and knowledgeable. Really a game changer – Think differently Accessible – multiple availabilities.

It really helps understanding your strength and weakness, gives you guidance on how to improve and grow. On a more personal note, it really helps with my self-confidence.

I liked that it was confidential and that it makes us look at other points of view and how others see things.

The coach was able to help me manage a difficult situation.

This program is an amazing way to gain insight on where you are “stuck” both personally and professionally.

Good support channel.

I thought it was helpful and a great tool for a manager who needs immediate guidance.

I knew I had to get out of the corporate job/environment I was in for a long time. When that moment to leave presented itself, I immediately looked for a coach who could walk the path of that transition with me. My goal was to align my values with my actions, to go there where my passion is and live it every day. Through a trust relationship with my coach, deep challenging questioning and open honest conversations with the coach but also with myself, I made it to that happy place.

I found the coach I had very knowledgeable and listed out many ways and ideas to tackle a scenario. We went through a list of different issued and concerns I had and the feedback I received was excellent. I did not go back to receive further advise because at this time I am still currently applying the technique and process I was coached on. In future I may need to attend another session but at this time the coaching was very successful I am currently still guided by the notes and ideas I took very seriously to apply to my

Very open and transparent conversation.

It made me reflect and think about how I should approach the person I had a conflict with, rather than just argue.

It helps as sometimes we do not want, or we are afraid to ask our superiors for help as we think they will feel we are weak at our position.

Loved it

I learned a lot.

I like to have a different perspective from someone not in my company & not from the fashion industry. It helped me to find my blind spots & some of the patterns I was stuck in.

Convenient time slots.

Objective viewpoint, new ideas, positive energy, good strategies.

It helped me have the confidence to step up and self-validate.

It really helped me to grow as a manager & as a human. It gives the opportunity to see beyond the problem & have a larger perspective of the situation.

Sometimes it is difficult to ask your supervisor for advice as they are too busy.

It helped me on my personal & work life, I feel like I’ve grown a lot.

Helps to deal with your day-to-day work stress.

My coach gave me some great exercises and strategies for coping with some high pressure situations (both personally and professionally). She highlighted the importance of work life balance.”

“My coach helped me realize that I had the answers all along but was just refusing to accept and initiate it.”

A friend and esteemed colleague of mine recommended Grand Heron International when I was navigating new career and growth opportunities. I had some idea of what I did and did not want; however, after just one coaching call with Valerie (love her!), I had a better tool set and actionable plan for me to take the next steps in my decisional tree.I highly recommend this service. It comes with on-demand qualified, and most importantly correctly CERTIFIED coaches without the commitment of multiple sessions or packages (unless that's what you need; then you also have those options).

It’s hard not to fall in love with a purpose-driven company filled with passion-driven people on a mission to “lift society through liberated minds.” Offering on-demand coaching to anyone, anywhere, and anytime is more important today than ever before and GHI has been one step ahead since its inception.I’m both grateful and honoured to play a role in Grand Heron International as both, the Head of GHI’s Coach Ecosystem and as an Associate Coach amongst an elite roster of incredible professional coaches. Working alongside wonderful people while having a positive impact on our clients via a truly innovative & unique service is certainly a body of work that I’m proud to be a part of…AND to preach about! 𓅣
