Coach, Therapist Liège – Giovannina Fornieri
When I started kindergarten at age five, I didn’t know a single word of French. However, I learned it very quickly. These experiences of approaching the language of the other and its mode of operation, although trivial for some, turned out to be quite decisive for my future because I subsequently understood the importance of communication with others and the influence this can have on their socialization.
My entry into the professional world was my commitment to Saint François-Xavier College in 1990. It is to this Jesuit establishment where I work today, no longer as a teacher, but as assistant director, that I owe my personal learning of rigor (even if my natural and probably “slightly Mediterranean” exuberance still persists). It was in this school that I made my debut as a language teacher and completed my basic pedagogical training.
Around the age of 40, my career was floundering. I then decided to go back to school to become an adult trainer. So I followed these courses for three years at the University of Louvain-la-Neuve. I think it was a real turning point in my life. I then trained teachers for six years. The idea of becoming a coach was already beginning to germinate.
I then decided to change lanes again. You see, changes don’t scare me. I took school management training and became deputy headmistress. I tried this function in two other schools before returning to mine where I am appointed today.
In my daily work, I support teachers with all sorts of issues that are not always related to teaching. It’s more like a human resources job. This is how I understood that I could help other people in other areas and accompany them in their choice of life thanks to my great experience.
Recently, I then resumed training as a coach at IFAPME Liège. Today I am there. I am at your service to help you either to reorient yourself, whatever your age, or to see more clearly in your life, or to support you in the choices you will make.
I look forward to meeting you !
