Before Coaching arrived to my life...

I hold a degree in Technological Chemistry (FCUL) and a PhD in Chemistry made in two institutions: ITQB, Portugal and Kantonsspital Basel (Hospital of the Canton of Basel), Switzerland. I worked several years as a researcher in 7 different institutions; between Portugal and in Switzerland. My PhD and career in chemistry were dedicated to Cancer research. This research area challenged me in several ways, as I had to learn to develop skills in different directions, not only scientifically, but as well as a person. I worked on teams, where human diversity, coming from different backgrounds, cultures, languages and personalities, energised my natural curiosity about human nature, what moves and connects us all. In Kantonspital Basel I had occasions, where I was in closer contact with cancer patients. That was the toughest “professional experience” that I ever had. I had to deal directly with the questions and the hard reality of several special persons, who expected that our team effort would give him/her hope for a better life. My sense of mission turned much stronger. I wanted to help. I learned to listen more deeply. I learned to smile with understanding compassion. I learned that we just want all to be happy.
