One major lesson I learned is: I’m enough.
I love that Cherine speaks from personal experience to act as a guide. She pushed me to go more in depth and find out what I need, then offered practical solutions that I can continue to use long after our sessions are finished. Additionally, she is a delight to work with always positive, fully present, and nonjudgmental. In addition to helping me remember what's really important to me, rather than just what society/family tell us we 'should' do, Cherine gave me step by step processes that I can use to stay true to my values during any difficult situations that may arise in the future.
Even though I didn't use it between every session, I really liked the option of sending questions via email! And Skype is so easy and effective.

Karen Kurzmeyer shares the hesitations she had before joining The Courageous You 8-Week journey, why she said YES and what she dreams to achieve.
I benefited in so many ways. I found the encouragements, advice and tell it like it is approach very useful. That's exactly what I needed in order to progress and learn. I loved that we could do our sessions by skype, that I could write to Chérine whenever I needed to ask a question. I enjoyed the home works. I loved sharing what I'm learning and I embarked my friends on some of my exercises. I appreciated Chérine's involvement. It showed how much she cares and how much she wants this experience to be a success. I recommend Chérine to my friends first, because they would easily connect with her. Her down to earth, friendly approach is what would make them connect with her and feel safe. I recommend Chérine to my acquaintances as well, because she is a real professional, who takes her work very seriously and wants to make a change in people's lives.
The biggest learnings were to be more self-aware of what I desire and the decisions I take to get there. "How to you want to feel Rima?" is the question that I'm gonna keep asking myself before doing anything.
Thank you Chérine for taking me on as your client. Your presence was a true help in finding my way back to myself and in planning my future dreams. I look forward to working with you again!

"I feel so much clarity, this year I grew up a lot, and I feel I got it due to the courses I had with u Chérine. God bless you so much."
"stop list is great practice. I will begin by stop postponing !"
"Not going to wait till 2019 to start all this. In fact, 50% of the plan is already in"
"thank you very much Cherine! big big value you share with us! thank you all magic women! ♥"
"Thank you for a wonderful workshop. I loved every part of it. Thank you thank you thank you ♥"
"I have so much on my stop doing list and the self care plan has so many beautiful things on. that feels SO good! It feels empowering and gives me joy to think about putting into action for 2019 but also from now! What a great exercise! One example: stop depending from facebook likes and comparing myself. - Connect to myself and my soul every day and do things from that space."
Chérine directed me, so I became aware of myself, and how to live my dreams in my present moment. I now believe in myself and my capabilities. She doesn't advice but gently helps you to discover Aha moments which then transform your life. Quite honestly, I had worked with other coaches before but she's the only one who transformed my life. I recommend her to my best friends and family.

Aida, Educator, Mother and Entrepreneurs shares her experience of the year long VIP Feminine Leadership Program.
I believe everybody should get coached at some point in their life if they’re not clear about what’s important for them.
It helped me clarify my mind. I know what I really want to do, what makes me happy and how I want to bring more joy into my life. I learned to make my own choices. This encouraged me to take very big decisions I knew deep inside I should have taken a long time back.
M.A | Engineer | Egypt
I discovered that we’re the ones who limit ourselves. If I don’t push myself forward and go for it, I will never get anywhere because nobody will come fix my life if I won’t take the initiative to do it myself. I learned how to get the strength I needed to go forward and move towards my goals. How to think clearly, how to connect with my values, and get what I want from life. I learned how to live authentically! And above all, nothing that happens to me is the end of the world.
There’s nothing I fear now. Everything has a solution. That is life changing!

Now, I know myself better, I’m more focused, my self awareness is sharper. The biggest learning that is engraved in my heart mind and soul is discovering my life values. That helps me make choices that are in line with who I am in my friendships, love life, my environment and my goals. Totally worth it!
There is a special thing in your teaching Chérine. For some reason, what I’ve learned from you is different from what I’ve learned from books. Your message sticks in the brain infinitely and I use it in my daily life which I love!

Myriam Moufarrej shares why she joined The Courageous You Journey + what she got out of it.
Chérine awakened me to what I REALLY want and less compromising and ‘making do’ with whatever I get. I feel so much more assertive about who I want to meet and what I want in the rest of my life. Knowing my values in so many areas is incredibly powerful. I won’t compromise on ME. Chérine is intuitive and has an empathy that comes through in her words and made me feel it’s ok to be me, exactly as I am. No need to dress things up or be shy about anything. Even though she assured me everything was confidential, I already knew that as soon as I spoke to her. I feel even MORE ready to meet a new man than I was before.
I feel clearer about who that man needs to be in order to have the soul mate connection that I’m yearning for. AND, even though feeling these things may make me more impatient, I actually feel more assured that I will meet him when the time is right. Because it is SO helpful! I can see how easily I was looking for someone completely different to my ideal man’s profile. I was allowing myself to compromise on so many things and ended up meeting men who had completely different core values to me. It’s no wonder I haven’t met the right man yet. Also, I now feel like my ideal man’s profile IS for me and not a dream and not ‘too much for little me’ which is how I was thinking before. It was great to feel more assured that I’m on the right path, doing what I can, but also that life will reveal my new man when we’re both ready. Can’t wait!
Chérine, you are invaluable. You have a true gift and I really hope you get this message and course out to thousands more people. It would be a crime not to!
J Butler | Online marketing consultant | UK
I am more aware of what I want and that it is okay to want them. It has helped me know when I am settling, when something is a red flag and when it’s something that I need to deal with. Chérine helped me understand better the way love can be. She initiated me to define what love is for me and most importantly, to understand how to love myself.
From now on, I’ll never compromise how much I value growth and learning in myself and, how important that is when I am looking for a partner. It’s what makes my heart sing.

FIND YOUR PASSION
I am so grateful to you and your offering! It has already given me so much insight and joy. I look forward to doing a new module with you every week! I have learnt so much about myself, by reconnecting to my creativity, and realized what my priorities are in life. This is so precious! And worth a thousand jobs.
This course helped me to be more open to the world! To believe in my potentials and that I CAN and I WILL do what I am capable of doing in life! And that nothing is impossible as long as we have a good will and enthusiasm
I advice any person who is ready, to take find your passion course with Chérine. The course will help you organize your thoughts and give you some insights about yourself and feelings. I just loved the course and Chérine is a really good & generous coach, and you can feel her love and passion even online. All the love and many thanks ❤️❤️
Let Cherine's energy and passion energize you! She's done a great job of getting me not only curious about my true passions but also expertly led the way to actually discovering my future business idea - and some long-lost passions I definitely want to pursue on the side as a hobby. Thank you so much, Cherine!
Love the freshness of how you share your message.
I really like the way you teach things and you are a wonderful human being thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to experience this course ??
The few classes I took so far already put my brain at work and it’s constantly working in the background during my daily activities/vacation without noticing. I find myself paying more attention to everything I’m doing and analysing them. The classes are so far a trigger most of all but also an enlightenment and a way to structure my thoughts. It give me a different perspective/way of looking at the things around me and in me that usually pass without being noticed.
I love the quality of the content. The systematic way and structure of the course reduces the difficulty to go through/accept the ideas that take my energy. it's like going to gym with a skilled trainer, who reminds you that some muscles exists , who shows you some forethought ways and makes you feel that you can do it!
Thank you for brightening up people's life, you inspire me all the time & I can't wait to start my coaching career, as despite I'm re-connected to myself & fueled as a humane & artist, I learned alot from you about coaching, you are my Idol
It did helped me to go deep into inner self and the real version of me. It is important to understand that our passion doesn't come from things we do now but also what we used to do in the past and analyse our daily routines.
Since undertaking your courses I have developed a tool kit for personal transformation. I feel more positive about developing and taking my passion to new levels. Your courses are well thought out and easy to understand. Thank you for your generosity of spirit.
Well, you are great, cheerful and positive, you helped us to get back to the base of our dreams and goals, you helped us to see the way to find our passion out ! Just a great Course ! Loved it because I had to dig deeply in myself to find my passion!
I dived into FYP with trust ( because you inspire trust dearest Cherine) and hope (because you always make sure we feel that). My trust and hope were rewarded.
Now I know my inner self better and more importantly can put names to the emotions and feelings I have. Each lesson and each module brought me clarity and knowledge. I have learnt an amazing, joyful way to see things, process information and a fantastic way to make decisions.
The whole process I went through in FYP was a revelation and it made/ makes me feel serein and at peace with myself. Somehow I let go of anger and frustration.
FYP really helped me with my vision of how I want my life to feel and what I need to do about it.
Thank you Cherine, you are a beautiful soul and an amazing coach.
Don't laugh...I really wanted this workshop to go on. It made me feel on the right track.
Tala Beydoun | Lebanon
The FYP course is a journey of self-exploration and self-discovery that helps even the most aware people become more grounded and more in touch with their inner capabilities, aspirations and perceptions... it's an enjoyable ride, a roller coaster on which you are intrigued to get back on time and time again to feel that adrenaline in your blood once more and savor the thrilling feeling of rush and freedom, screaming your lungs out... Nisrine Khoury 🙂
Nisrine Khoury | Director - Strategy and Corporate Development
This course gently guided me back to reconnect with my heart and to get in touch with what I love and cherish the most in this life. Through simple steps, I have been able to recognize where I got lost into the process of my life, so I can now see a brand new and joyful path towards my passions. Going through this process with Chérine made me realized that being just who I am is not only enough, it is fantastic, and I have to take care of my treasures! I now realize how legitimate it is to listen to my heart and my truth. I now dare to consider my passions as a top priority in my life. The quality of Chérine's coaching is remarkable. Her joy is contagious and brings a lot of motivational energy on this path of reconnecting to our own joy. Thank's a lot!
Find Your Passion takes you to an inner journey to meet yourself to discover -and rediscover- your inner passions, those things that move you and make you vibrate, those you had forgotten, those which make you feel that life has sense. I suddenly realized I was very deep in my mind and heart, without hard struggles to get there. The exercises don't let any important information scape from your awareness, and the materials make the journey fun and enjoyable making you decide from your soul and heart, something you don't get in therapy or at university, this is a deeper work, but again: enjoyable. I felt connected to Chérine while watching the exercises, her enthusiasm is contagious. You'll get to know yourself better, increase your self esteem and discover your passion.
Mónica Ramírez López | Bachelor and Master in Communications
Find your passion course is more than just a module to work on but it is journey to visit ur inside.
The module is not easy because you might like what you find or not! It invites you to take action and to move to become your better self. That’s why finding a passion is a also a never ending journey...
This course has helped me with thinking deeply about my strengths, the areas in my life that come so naturally to me, and my weaknesses. It has helped me remember times in my life when I was the most happiest and being my best self..
This course helped me to hear my soul, my heart, inspired my mind.
Find Your Passion is a course that made me dive in my mind and heart in a adventure of self recognition. In that journey, I found beautiful achievements I have gotten in my life, and also found old dreams that were archived but still waiting for me. Yes, I could find my passion! But that was after an enriching inner journey which I enjoyed step by step, guided from the hand of a empathetic coach (Cherine!) who made the way softer and lighter. She always guide you with a positive attitude, you will love her energy, her cheerfulness is contagious!
This course has helped me with thinking deeply about my strengths, the areas in my life that come so naturally to me, and my weaknesses. It has helped me remember times in my life when I was the most happiest and being my best self..
This 4 weeks journey might not get you all the answers but will definitely direct you toward the right questions ? A must do regardless what is your age, background , aspiration or where do you stand right now ... A bon entendeur salut ?
Find your passion course made me realise tremendous stuff about me and my personality! It made realise that being multi passionate is a blessing not a curse. It even made me know how people around me think about me and my personality! It was challenging yet very very constructive.. I am a highschool student who is truly suffering to find my major in the chaos of my multi passions and the bad school system i am facing, but after this course, i have become able to funnel my thoughts and passions, differentiate between hobbies and strengths and careers, and started listening to what my heart really wants, what my soul desires, and what my mind is asking for! Cherine is a woman of strength, cleverness, and positivity. If i have become any near to the cloud of success, Cherine is certainly who made me fly!❤️

After working with Chérine I am more aware and empowered. I feel more abundance in my life. I don’t feel guilty about affirming what I want and leading toxic people out of my life. Reminding myself of my core values and desires and using them as a compass for everything in my life is EMPOWERING! They reconnect me to who I really am and what I want to attract more of. They also make me respect myself more and help me with enhancing my sense of purpose.
What stood out for me about Chérine is that She is professional and punctual. She is experienced about the issues and needs I had. I recommend her because I got results and because she’s easy to talk to, open and nonjudgemental.
SONIA E. | FACULTY | U.A.E
Working together made me learn more about myself that I wasn’t aware of before. Specifically, about the ideal clients I want to work with and the way I can market to those clients. I also discovered how my uniqueness is a marketing tool that makes any competition irrelevant! I was blown away by her knowledge about marketing and the way she put it in service of my business.
Her full presence, her engagement, her commitment – all outstanding! Each session is structured! I loved it! Her energy, always positive, being down-to-earth and at the same time bringing all the authenticity and wonder into the same space.
Thank you Chérine! I am really happy to have had you as my business Coach!
Madalena Carvalho | Life Coach | UAE
Salma E. | Social Entrepreneur | Dubai
In these 4 sessions, I became more confident in being who I am and knowing that I will be accepted the way I am. I learned what I stand for and what’s important to me and that I don’t have to give up on them.
Chérine has a very welcoming, friendly approach that made me comfortable to say what I want to say. I felt no judgement and I was able to share everything that crossed my mind. I loved that she shared personal stories and her experiences because it made me feel that the trust was mutual. I loved that she didn’t make me feel that my problems were stupid. I recommend her because she works from her heart and she’s passionate about what she does and about helping people get the results they desire.
Chérine keep doing what you’re doing because you’re changing people’s lives.
Meera K. | U.A.E | Abu Dhabi
I’ve learned a lot from The LOVE! Course. I feel that I am more aware and in touch with my core values and that’s a powerful guidance in any decisions I make. I have now a profound respect towards what I want and desire in my life. I am an active member in my story.
Sarah Groth | U.S.A.
I’m writing this note as a thank you from the bottom of my heart! I know that I could call you - but this seems even more personal and permanent.
Joining and taking part in the course you carried out earlier on this year, has helped me beyond words.
The takeaway from your course, for me, was that I HAD TO LOVE MYSELF.
My life has changed some what since then……………
I’ve stopped smoking!!!!
I got a personal trainer 3 x a week
I make a concerted effort to at least have my eyes made up before I leave the house!
I make myself SMILE constantly - fake it ’til you make it!
I accept a compliment
I threw out and gave away A LOT of stuff!
When someone tells me I look beautiful, I thank them and do NOT turn it into something negative about myself as a joke to deflect the uncomfortable feeling of someone paying you a compliment.
I’m open but still fearful at times
I feel happier within myself every day
I LISTEN to myself more
Although it might not look like it, my business IS moving forward.
So once again, thank you, thank you, thank you.
There are no other words, apart from the above and that I love and cherish you.
Kisses, love & hugs.
My biggest realisation is I need to bring more heart into my job and communicate more. I learned how to acknowledge others and I discovered how important it is to be authentic in business.
Chérine is easy to open up to and encouraging.
Adib Choueiri |Head of Customer Service sales| Ericsson
I learned the importance of having more communication within the team and the positive impact of acknowledgments.
Mónica Ramírez López
Monica shares how The Courageous You helped her make tough decisions.
To all growth junkies, coaching is a very fulfilling experience with Chérine. For those who do not know what coaching is or for those who do not even think about it, I know that Chérine is your coach. The main thing you will get out of your journey with her is increased self-awareness which is the tipping point to true growth.
The learning that really change how I will lead my life and relationships is: when you know how you want to feel, you would be able to explicitly state what you want.
The one thing I learned is the importance of passion and the importance each one’s role has within the organisation.
It taught me how to give the opportunity to others to participate, give remarks and input for a better communication- even if we have different opinions.
What most enlightened me: Knowing others values, their way of thinking, their way of behaving and their work ethics.
This provokes a positive change only for those who really have a good intention to change.
My number one learning: Being frank with others.
From now on, the way I’ll deal with my team will be different.
I’ll recommend this to others because cooperation and trust and respect are very important component in a team. Actually, you can't survive within a team or family without them.
Chérine has the patience to deal with a team and knows exactly what’s going on even if we don’t talk about it, she’ll nail it.
What surprised me is others points of view and perspective, behaviours, priorities
The one learning: importance to go back to ourselves every now and then.
From now on I’ll take others’ feelings and circumstances in consideration and respect their own way.
This is a completely different approach in work relationships based on absolute transparency.
Chérine participates in our discussion and that makes us want to talk and open up even more.
I was blown away by the acceptance of the team to learn, the willingness to improve and how much respect we have for each other. I learned it's crucial to confront honestly with each member.
I found Chérine's method effective and dynamic.
What I’ll do differently from now on is that I’ll take in consideration difficult personalities and their different perspectives or point of view.
What I most enjoyed are the honest conversations.
I didn’t feel that the main principle of building a team
wanted more positive and negative stories.
I’d recommend TeamShift for honest conversations to improve productivity and healthy interactions.
Chérine makes us want to communicate and open up.
I insist everyone in our organisation should take this workshop.
Thank you Chérine for your support and sharing your knowledge.
What I learned are the positive points and strengths I discovered within our team.
What I’ll do differently from now on is taking change with a bigger heart and open arms and putting my focus on the positive points of change. The most useful tool I got from this is how to make an agreement on how we’re going to be as a team for better and for worse.
Although at first, I thought it would be difficult for us to sit together and have these tough heart to heart conversations, after doing TeamShift I realised it's easy for me to have these discussions.
Tania Blanco shares her story: why she joined The Courageous You 8 weeks Journey + what she got out of it + how it feels to work more intensively one on one.
It really helps you get your year ahead into focus.
I loved identifying specific goals and actions, as well as feelings, about my dreams. Loved the pace of it too!
Setting a plan for the coming year and for life.
It’s a great resource if you have goals you feel you’re not reaching, or if you want to take charge of your life.
"I learned to be more specific when I set my future Objectives and to prioritize measurable Goals."
"Chérine worked at a fast pace and explained why. I've attended a couple of webinars focusing on goals for the following year before and always felt rushed, overwhelmed and out of my depth. I enjoyed working intuitively, it made sense to me and I found I had plenty to work with. "
"I loved that Chérine placed a lot of emphasis on core feelings, working with our intuition and emotions. That each task, goal or objective often came back to how it made or would make us feel."
"Chérine's passion and delivery with her message was as always bang on. "
"It's a push to execute my plan, making things tangible, feeling easier to execute."
"It's practical, easy and resonates with my way of thinking."
"I find at the moment and quite unexpectedly that I'm experiencing breakthroughs or getting clearer in terms of what I want and don't want to do and be. Personally, the timing of the webinar was ideal as a lot came bubbling to."
