We have worked with Joanna Trawińska for the past 2+ years in her capacity as a virtual assistant. During this time she has provided us with a fast and responsive service across a number of administrative and support areas. We are very happy with Joanna’s contribution and we can recommend her as a reliable, responsive and pleasant colleague.

”I have known Joanna both as student on the Diploma course Counselling & Coaching and as co-trainer for a subsequent group. Joanna is enthusiastic and good at making connections with and between people, she is inventive and motivated and brings in valuable intercultural perspectives. She is eager to get ahead and expresses willingness to learn whatever additional skills are needed to be self-reliant and independent. I wish her success.”

”Joanna brings energy and zest into every room she enters. She motivates, delegates and collaborates people from every walk of like and sends them on their destined path! I chose Joanna to be my business partner on a workshop because she sees people as people and not a number. Her prices are most certainly reasonable and she is eager to help. There isn’t a course she hasn’t been on nor a contact she doesn’t have!”

  1. I met Joanna few years ago… She was bringing the joy of life and a smile on our faces… In the beginning I thought that she is just polite with the other people, having a good word for everyone, like most of us are usually do… But during the years I discovered that she really cares about people, she really wants to help when possible! And if she is asking you “how are you”, she really wants to know how you are, and she looking into your eyes paying attention at your answer. For all these reasons and for many others Joanna is a very special person to me! And I truly appreciate her friendship and her knowledge!…

  6. Dear Ilona, it was a pleasure meeting you and I am happy you managed to learn something from me during those 10 months of the coaching & counseling training. Wish you all the best in your coaching journey. Joanna

  7. By coincidence in my search to find cooperation with a non-staff coach I met Joanna and meanwhile it got to me that my own goals were in need of getting clear and worked on. The continuous (non-fake) interest&optimism, support and methods&insights of Joanna helped me through and setup my next journey to get to my dreamjob/life. For sure it’s good to have Joanna in your circles.

    1. Thank you Pascal for sharing your coaching experience with JO(B)ANNA – Dream Job Diva Career & Life Coaching 🙂 I certainly hope to see your journey develop even further. You are a fighter! Good Luck!

  8. I met Joanna at one of her workshops, while I was looking for a job in the Netherlands I had just moved in. I have to admit that my experience by that time with “coaches” was not that good, but Joanna made the difference; she was cheerful, positive, friendly but also devoted to her mission! She made me feel much more confident and at ease about taking the next steps forward and start my career as an entrepreneur!

  9. Dear Tonia, I am happy that you were able to turn around stressful situation of not having a job and turn it into a successful and fun ”Dream Job”, your own business – each time one of my coachee is finding the creative way to bring money home I am proud! Thank you for your kind words 🙂 & good luck with what ever you do!!!

  10. Dear Asiu, You do a great job. You help others to discover themselves, their hidden talents and their enormous inner power. Most people focus on people’s external metamorphosis (make up, clothing, hairdressing). You, however, focus on one’s inner change. Your warmth and joyfulness, your methods during the workshop, give people lots of positive energy, belief in themselves and in the future. You dare to dream and belief that dreams can come true. This is the only way to get prepared for the application interview.The kind of person one is, their personality, is the most important aspect of this interview. Keep continuing this way, Asiu. You are doing a great job and are helping a lot of people. Not only do you make one’s career boost. You do much more. You give them a new way of living. Lots of love, Grazyna

    1. Dear Grazynko, You are awesome, I did not even know that the last Sunday Femininity Workshop made such an impact on someone. I am glad and touch that those few hours made a difference. I had fun too 🙂 Double, Trippe Thank you for your kind, warm and positive words on my work 🙂

  11. I see Joanna as a committed and enthusiastic coach. She knows how to stimulate you and bring you above “the water surface” again. Thanks to our relaxing and trustful talks I finally woke up and learned how to get the best out of myself in a respectful way. Even when I thought I would not manage with my plans she was there for me to shake me and push me forward. Thanks to her guidance and coaching, I have regain my strength and I can fly again. This is now my motto: “the sky is the limit”. Besides her roll of professional coach, Joanna is a very pleasant person and great friend. Thank you lovely JO(B)ANNA :-*

  12. Dear Diana, Thank you for being such a good coachee and for sharing your story with others. I wish you more cloudless skies, Your Life Coach – JO(B)ANNA – Dream Job Diva

  13. I have known Joanna as a colleague, both of us being counsellors/ coaches.
    Joanna is a very enthusiastic person, she brings a fresh way of looking at things and has good ideas and an original way of thinking.
    She’s pleasant to talk to, she loves people and can bring a great insight into every conversation.
    She’s sharp, clever and super positive- a thing which I believe is extremely important for a therapist who does what Joanna does.
    When someone is asking for a career coach, I’m always happy to recommend Joanna as an expert.

  14. I had one and only session. I wish I had more! It was great experience! I was crying, laughing and going really deep in whats inside my mind. I had good homework too. After meeting with Joanna some things in my mind just have opened and I look at things a little but different. Thank you

  15. Dear Noa and Beata, thank you a lot for your kind words. It was my pleasure to be of your assistance and support. Looking forward to meeting you again. – Your Career & Life Coach – JO(B)ANNA – Dream Job Diva

  16. Once upon a time ;-)…no, no it was just few years ago, when I met Joanna; new immigrant in NL, looking for friends, job, networking; I found all of them through Jo(b)Anna; I participated of few meetings, workshops and sessions for preparation for interviews; I remember like now, when I called Joanna desperate and scared that I need urgent help…and I received it…with no previous appointment; and the training was fantastic! And here I am …after 2 years, with a job, permanent contract now…
    Thank you Joanna, you are on that list of precious people which helped me to re-discover myself and to continue to grow.

  17. Dear Antonia,
    Thank you for your honest and beautiful words, you made me share a tear:) I am happy I decided to go this direction, as I am able to meet such wonderful, open, and precious people like yourself. Thank you for being you and for sharing your story here with others.
