Welcome to world 

My name is Riem. I am a half Saudi, half German, Californian at heart , Resource Therapy Practitioner & Certified professional Life Coach and Conflict Coach.

 

I was a few years old when I declared I wanted to be at service to people. A nurse ( like my mom and grandmother) or maybe a doctor. Belly dancer was on the table too . I was probably in my early teens when I decided I wanted to study psychology. and so i did . For my BA,  I majored in Psychology, with a minor in Communication, from California State University, Dominguez Hills, USA. During that time, I worked for Niswa, the Islam Women Shelter in California and later on for Lufthansa International Airlines at Los Angeles Airport.

Once i moved back to Saudi in 2002,  i worked for various  organizations including the Nursing college  and the United Nation. Deep inside , i was feeling unfulfilled and unsatisfied  especially that i was no longer in alignment with true calling .  So i moved to Berlin, Germany to complete my MA  in Intercultural Conflict Management  at Alice Salomon University. As a  multiracial and a third culture kid who lives in a world filled with cultural clashes, this sounded like a perfect fit.  

While I enjoyed my studies but the feelings of fulfillment didn't last long .  Afterwards, i moved on to work in places where i was incredibly overqualified and underpaid .   I continued to fulfilling my passion by helping people fix their problems - or i should say , by fixing their problems myself,  even if they didn't ask for my help . Needles to say , it had a negative effect on my overall well-being and on my relationships . No one likes to be told what to do especially when someone imposes their own views & values on them.

 

I started to feel incredibly unhappy with my life. Then on an August night in 2011 , I went on a night dive that, let’s say, confronted me with my reality and I knew I had to change something in my life. So, I took a leap of faith, said good bye to my routine at that time and dedicated a year out of my life to become a personal and professional coach at Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC)  in Los Angeles. And so I was back on track. During that time I enhanced my mediation skills by registering at the Loyola Law School Center for Conflict Resolution in Los Angeles, California. Through iPEC, I also became an Energy Leadership ™ Index Master Practitioner and months after that, I became an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coach Federation. It wasn't until I studied to become a life coach   that I finally learned what it means to honer other people's journeys and give them the space & support for them to fix their own lives if they choose to . After all, they are the experts of their lives. 
 My next move was to be trained as a Resource  Therapy Practitioner with the wonderful Dr. Gordon Emerson.  RT is great tool that helps individuals  work directly  with the conflicting parts in them . 

 

On another note, i also became an ISO Quality  Auditor for ISO 9001 and ISO 17025 . Yes, they do complement in each other. Coaching focuses on quality of living while ISO focuses on quality of work .   To access my resume, please visit  my linkedin page 

I have also learned to embrace  my inner witch and allow her to guide me.  This is how the Fairy Mama was created . she ..............................   

I love to go on hikes and  scuba dive , though i had to take a break due to some health reasons . I also love to use oracle and tarot cards . No, i do not tell the future but does empower us to connect with our creativity and intuition . 

And this is how I came to be the coach I am today.

Today, my vision is to create a community of people who are empowered and empower others, love who they are and lead lives they enjoy. My role as a coach is to empower and work with people to find their passion and help them create a life of confidence, fulfillment and abundance.
