Nancy Kalina - Safe Space Life Coaching

I invite you to . . .

Take a break from your day to day life.


Remember who you authentically are.

We live our lives surrounded by an invasion of the external world. There are always decisions to be made, daily demands, and pressures from the constant commotion that is life in the 21st century. We take little time for ourselves. We don’t necessarily spend time with our inner thoughts, yearnings and hankerings that come from within us. We may even feel frustrated, feel like life is not flowing and not know why we are frustrated or why life feels like a struggle.

It’s possible that the still small voice within you holds the keys.

Safe Space life coaching is exactly that, a safe space for you to remember who you are and all that you can be.

I act as a guide to help re-introduce you to your personal navigation system. It is within this relationship with your essential self that your journey toward wellness, energy, and living your best life can begin.

Recently, Kim and I received an e-mail from our two nieces. This note was a delight to us both simply because we love hearing from them. However, it was also wonderful for another reason. In addition to filling us in on their lives, there was a request for us to support an organization they belong to: Republican Women for Progress. Kim’s nieces have been lifelong Republicans. I have been a lifelong Democrat and Kim has been a Democrat for over thirty-five years, but we are both old enough to remember when elected officials worked together. They collaborated.

I subscribe to the belief that every opportunity (good or bad) is an opportunity to learn and to grow. I like to consider myself a lifelong learner. That being said, some of my lessons come much harder than others. An article titled “Everyone’s a Critic—And Why That’s a Good Thing” from fellow Martha Beck coach Jackie Gartman resonated deeply with me. We all have interesting relationships with criticism. Recently, I had the opportunity to learn more about my strong reactions to criticism.

When I first started my life coaching practice, I intentionally named my practice Safe Space Life Coaching. Being able to hold space for people who are suffering, struggling, grieving, and deeply desiring to be more at peace in their lives is an honor—one that I never forget. When people hire me, they choose to enter into a pact where I will hold space for them to actively melt down in order to build their lives anew. Creating a safe space for others is an ongoing, intentional practice for me.
