Are You Struggling with a Quarter-Life or Midlife Crisis?

Embracing Life's Turning Points

Life has many ways of surprising us.  Maybe you’ve achieved what you thought you wanted, but something feels not right. Perhaps unexpected challenges have left you feeling lost. Or you feel the urge to make the changes, but you cannot figure out which direction to choose to achieve fulfillment. These moments, though unsettling, can be powerful catalysts for positive transformation.

Could this be your chance to design a life that truly lights you up?

We all experience transitions – moments when the path ahead seems unclear. But within these uncertainties lies incredible potential. It’s a time to reconnect with your values, explore possibilities, and rewrite the narrative of your life.

You don’t have to navigate this alone.

If you’re ready to transform these challenges into opportunities, I’m here to guide you. Together, we can unlock your potential and create a life that feels meaningful and authentically yours.

Quarter-Life Crisis

“Because a thing seems difficult for you, do not think it impossible.”  – Marcus Aurelius

  • Do you feel behind of where you think you should be at your age?
  • Are you afraid that you will not be able to reach a satisfactory financial status?
  • Are you doubting your abilities, education, and career choices?
  • Do you feel societal pressure to settle down, have successes, or act “as an adult”?
  • Do you feel uncertain about your purpose and direction in life?
  • Do you experience anxiety, stress, or depression?

Midlife Crisis

Life is long if you know how to use it.” – Seneca 

  • Do you feel unsatisfied with the current life trajectory and the point you are in?
  • Are you stuck in the current job, looking for more meaning and fulfillment?
  • Do you experience problems in your relationship?
  • Do you worry about your health, aging, and the limited time remaining? 
  • Do you regret missed opportunities?
  • Are you questioning your values, beliefs,  priorities, and purpose?
  • Do you feel a strong urge for a change?

My Coaching Philosophy

My name is Monika and I am a Life Vision and Transformation coach.

I became a coach as a result of my own transformation – after years spent in the IT industry, I realized that I no longer enjoy my work and I do not find it meaningful anymore. Only later I figured out that I experienced burnout, but from today’s perspective, I could not be more grateful for it.

I changed my profession, place of living, lifestyle, goals, mindset, and interests (sadly my financial situation changed also, but for the worse😄). At that point, I decided that I wanted to help people who have to leave the known path and jump into the unknown, despite doubts about what awaits them on the other side.

My coaching merges two aspects:

  1. Soul-searching to discover one’s values, motivators, purpose, vision, goals,
  2. Practical problem-solving, designing approaches, planning, and ensuring progress.
Life Vision and Transition Coach Monika Sałach

What I care most about during the coaching process is that the client feels safe and respected, and does not hesitate to share thoughts and emotions. I do not play a guru in our relationship, but we are true partners with a common goal to discover meaning and nurture confidence to pursue it.

Results I have helped create

Monika has been a valuable source of guidance and support for me over the past several months. Her coaching style is empathetic, insightful, straightforward and action-oriented, which has helped me to identify and achieve my goals in both my personal and professional life. During our sessions I have gained a better understanding of myself and what was blocking me. Monika has put me in front of some of my limiting beliefs, sometimes even going straight to the point with some observations, and we were able to dispel them. She has consistently challenged me to push beyond my current way of thinking and pursue meaningful change, while also providing the encouragement I needed. I would say she is a deep active listener and a non-judgmental person, which in my case has made the difference! I felt I could be completely myself and open myself up.

I have been working with Monika for more then a year and I always know that whatever I am dealing with I will always be greeted with a warm smile and open mind, which instantly makes me feel calmer, safer and free to speak openly and be vulnerable about any and all of the issues. Monika always listens intently and without judgement, asking insightful questions. She is so thoughtful and genuinely cares, often suggesting logical and creative solutions for me to consider, and then holding the space for me to work through the ideas. I always leave the coaching session feeling lighter, stronger and able to overcome any obstacles in my way. In under a year, I have achieved huge transformations in both my professional and personal life. I can't think of anyone better to walk alongside you every step of the way from 'burnt out' to 'living your happiest life'!
Laura D.
Executive Assistant (UK)
I have been working with Monika for a while now in a time when I am trying to establish a new business and going through a career change. She has helped me to see the situation from different perspective and to see different options which I wasn’t aware of before. Monika is a coach who shows empathy and understanding throughout the session. In difficult times she made me feel heard, understood, and supported. She helped me to dig deep into my underlying beliefs, which I wasn’t aware of and helped me see things from a different angle and take the right steps towards my goal. As I am transitioning into a new career, I feel confident in the steps I am taking, and I feel I have the support I need. I can highly recommend Monika as a highly skilled and solid coach.
