Dounia was kind, attentive to minute details, persuaded me to dig deeper into finding solutions whenever i felt stuck and most importantly, was there for me when i needed a helping hand. My experience with a life coach has been super fruitful and i could not have been given a better match than Dounia. Intelligent yet so humane to every issue i came across, i will leave her knowing so much more about myself and having found a friend for life!Sheetal

I was really lucky and privileged to obtain a free quick consultation from Dounia. She is very capable to understand my situation and offer straightforward advice. I believe that Dounia is a priceless asset, and will not hesitate to use her again.Mohammed
It was a very nice experience. The coach was very understanding and open I really enjoyed talking to her.Aya
Yes it was generally positive. I felt she was empathetic and understood me, but I prefer the next time she becomes more sensitive in working with me to the point after (she mentioned it in the first session; you have some problems with yourself) I do not like a life coach to express in this way, because sometimes it effects in me to avoid discussing for more deeply issues with her.Kumrie Zika
I first met Dounia at work during a very difficult time in both my personal & professional life, she gave me her time generously. I was expecting that she would advise me directions to make my life happy, but instead she indirectly guided me how to choose my own directions, set my goals & achieve them. I learned how to speak confidently in public as she involved me in support group & to be positive to others, i felt that i made some success in my life since i'm more confident & i can see people & life from different aspects than mine.Anonymous

Dounia is a very emotional intelligent coach who knows how to build a successful rapport with her coachees. I had excellent interaction with her on both group coaching and one-to-one coaching. I highly respect the fact that she is always welcoming and energetic whenever I meet with her personally or over the phone and her positive energy flows easily to me and to others. She is very clear with her mentoring approach in which she makes sure the communication between her and the coachee is clear and meaningful in order to ensure full understanding of the situation and hence apply the right development tools and concepts. I was able to focus and work on her advices/ goals to me and I did reaped the benefits :)Nasra
Dears, I am writing to recommend Dounia MAREI for being an excellent professional coach. In fact, my experience with her has undoubtedly been the best I have ever made for my personal & professional growth. I feel exponentially more confident in the major areas of my life including my career, business relationships. I know her since 2015 as a colleague, a friend and a professional coach. From my experience, Dounia is kind, honest, ethical person and very easy to work with, Ill give some high-level topics that we covered: My mental blocks and fears around coming back to home-country and accept a new business challenge. Whether to take a huge job promotion or keep doing my thing. What I really want in my career and in my personal life. How to best structure and use my calendar. What it means to "work authentically" Why Im afraid to go for the win ? Many of these topics took several sessions to gain more clarity. I admit that some sessions werent incredibly valuable. It could have been me, because i were not in the correct emotional/mental space for the session. And Dounia helped me on that to reach my professional goals. As of now, and before I make any big decision in my professional life or when I have many unknowns around a business topic, I turn to Dounia for clarity. Im currently transitioning into a new job challenges. The first person I reached out to was obviously her. Finally and based on our experience together, I can confidently recommend Dounia for Business & Professional coaching. Sincerely, Halima Kenza DAHMANIHALIMA KENZA DAHMANI
