health and lifestyle coach

 

SO, WHAT’S MY STORY?

You’re probably wondering why I would be the right coach for you?

The truth is, I’ve always been about helping others. After completing my BSc in Biology at the Vilnius University in Lithuania, I wanted to do something meaningful with my life and expand my horizons. For two years following graduation I volunteered for Mercy Ships (www.MercyShips.org) on a hospital ship called the Anastasis, helping less fortunate people in Togo, South Africa and Madagascar. Now in a different, but no less motivated time of my life, I still feel the need to help others. In fact, I donate 10 percent of my coaching fee to organizations that support the poor and needy of the world.

After returning from my volunteer adventure, I became licensed as a Radiation Therapist. As such, I have seen the benefits and drawbacks of western medicine first-hand. After years of working at the hospitals, I decided to explore naturopathic healing through the use of the therapeutic grade essential oils and was so impressed and excited by their capabilities that it triggered a series of events in my life -- I began teaching classes to educate the community about natural alternatives and essential oil supplements for health. I also became more aware of the toxicity that exists in foods and the environment, and I began learning about other natural remedies, Chinese medicine, organic and raw foods. This love of holistic therapy prompted my expansion into a more natural health and wellness approach, as well as coaching.

On a more personal note, I know what it’s like to feel burned out. A little while ago, I didn’t understand why I was feeling so tired, stressed and anxious all the time. I was eating well and exercising, but I wasn’t sleeping well and my energy was depleted.

I visited a Doctor of Oriental Medicine (D.O.M.) who ran me through a battery of tests and confirmed that I was suffering from a fairly common affliction--adrenal burnout. The years of stressful, taxing jobs medicated with increasing amounts of caffeine to keep me awake and focused, were taking their toll on my body. Another surprise came my way when the cellular age of my 39-year old self (oops…I just gave my age away!) came back as that of a 55-year old woman! I remember my D.O.M. saying to me: “You had been running on sheer fumes, caffeine and will-power, my dear, for a long time.” And I thought I was healthy!

Recognizing that my love of the healing powers of Essential Oils served as my gateway to natural medicine, I try to incorporate this holistic approach in my coaching. I treat the individual as a whole where all parts of his or her life are integrated into the one being.

I am proud to be trained through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) which is one of the most highly acclaimed coaching schools in the world and is accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). Studying at iPEC enables me to have the best education and tools available to help you be successful. Incorporating their proven methods into my own unique style of coaching, and embracing my European roots to try to maintain an excellent work-life balance, means that you benefit from a coach who not only teaches you how to make changes in your life, but lives it herself.

I truly want you to begin living your best life. One that is healthy, energized and empowered!

 

I’m About Empowerment!

I like to inspire people to dream big and go for the “A” life. I want to help you tackle challenges head on, to have faith in yourself, take some risks and never settle for anything less than what you really want. I can encourage you to do these things because I've done them myself, numerous times. I wouldn't be where I am today without pursuing these ideals.

Right now I'm living a very inspired and empowered life. Establishing my own business, Kristina Simpson Coaching, has been an incredible journey – both personally and professionally. I feel like I am exactly where I should be right now, at this moment. I feel inspired and in complete alignment with my purpose. I get to be creative and manage my own destiny, and there is such freedom and joy in that. I feel free to completely express myself, and bring in elements of my life that enhance my work such as my creative eye, my interest in photography and in looking at the world from a different perspective. My coaching also draws on all I have experienced via my worldly travels, and brings in a spiritual element that is guided by living from the heart, intuition, faith and divine guidance.

 

I’m About Health!

I love science. As a child, I always wanted to know why things were the way they were. I’ve always been an academic, so it seemed natural for me to enter the medical profession. After earning a degree in Biology and returning from my work on Mercy Ships, I came to the United States and studied Medical Imaging specializing in Radiation Therapy. Now, a decade later and after working with cancer patients at institutions such as the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), I am often saddened to see the devastating side effects different treatments and pharmaceuticals took on a person’s body.

I developed a deep interest in alternative medicine as I mentioned previously, and apply the philosophies of holistic care when developing a program to help you achieve optimal health in a natural way. I strongly believe that the key to health is prevention and self care. Of course things happen and we get sick, but we have a lot more control than we think! The science of epigenetics proves that our genetic make-up doesn’t determine quite as much as we originally thought it did!

My holistic point of view focuses on many facets of life including your physical, emotional, and spiritual health. I believe in finding the root cause of your mental and physical blockages; blockages that prevent you from living a happily fulfilled life.

And, you’ll also get to hear some inspiring stories that my cancer patients have taught me about life.

 

I’m About Balance!

Being European, I embrace and admire the commitment to a balanced life. Europeans work to live, not live to work! I see life as a precious gift that should not be wasted. It should be enjoyed. Part of that enjoyment comes from working at something fulfilling, and that’s probably one of the reasons I’m not afraid to go after what I want.

Another very European thing to do is travel. I don't know about you, but I don’t want to leave my traveling until I’m retired. I started traveling as soon as I graduated high school, as I’d always dreamed of seeing the world. I love diversity, different cultures and exploring exotic destinations. When I feel stuck in a rut, I know it's time for a trip to the lands far away. I get so refreshed and energized when I come back. I use my prior experiences to kick myself out of my comfort zone, and move on to things that are more inspiring, meaningful and important.

If you feel stuck and would like to make travel a bigger part of your life, but can’t allow yourself to do it, I just might be the coach for you!

I’m About Abundance and Prosperity!

As part of a holistic approach to life, it’s important to think rich! And I’m not just talking fiscally. Thinking rich means achieving a sense of abundance and vitality to satisfy your inner self. If you think richly, you will achieve richly.

Whether it’s your job, your relationship, your finances or how much you feel you’ve achieved in life, I’m here to support you.

I’ve always been interested in the laws of attraction, and the dynamics between the sexes. I’m constantly reading more about it, and have learned that one key factor in attracting (or keeping) the right person, is being satisfied in your own life. I can help you build up your confidence and self-esteem so you become a desirable, attractive, energetic person.

I also respect money, and know that it’s important to treat money responsibly and with care. I’m an avid reader of books about how to become financially savvy and know how important it is to have not only a sound financial plan but also allow wealth and abundance into your life.

 

I’m About Being International!

I remember having childhood dreams about talking to people from all over the world. I feel like I’m living my dream. I speak three languages fluently and have visited over 25 countries. I draw inspiration from all of them, and feel that learning about new cultures brings us closer together, not further apart. I always knew it was my destiny to dream big and see the world!

My vision for the future. Angelina Jolie is a big inspiration for me. Not only is she an accomplished actress but her humanitarian work and global lifestyle fuel my desire to dream big. I’d love to create a truly international business where I can share my expertise and bring a transformative experience to men and women all around the globe.

And, of course…
