Kaika = To Bloom

Do you ever find yourself holding back from exploring your thoughts, or acting further? Perhaps you are doing this unconsciously and you don’t even know this yet.  Kaika seeks to unravel some of these unconscious patterns, and open up new possibilities that your future holds.

My hope and wish for you is to blossom not just once, but many times through discovering and growing.  

“All the flowers of the tomorrows are in the seeds of today” ~ Indian Proverb


What KAIKA offers


One on One Personal Development Coaching

You may be an executive or leader working in your non-native environment, looking to be more assertive, taking charge with confidence, or managing a diverse team in person or virtually and communicating effectively.  Or you may be wanting to advance your career, change roles, explore your career, or even want to be more effective in your new role or in a new environment.  Maybe you are a mom stretched to meet the demands of the many people that rely on you, and work life balance is a challenge.  Or an assignee or a “trailing” spouse in a new culture needing to establish your way and your path.  Or perhaps grew up as Third Country National, feeling different and not completely fitting in.  

I am here to be with you to explore your future, possibilities, and hold you accountable for what you want to be and do.

If you are interested in exploring further, please arrange a free chemistry session (~30 minutes) with me.  If you have questions, you may contact me using the contact form below.

Minimum 4 month one on one personal transformational coaching program:

1) Discovery Session- (~80 minutes)

2) 6 Sessions- (~50 minutes per session)*

3) Completion Session (~50 minutes per session)

*Extensions are possible, and we can discuss further towards the end of the program.

Voices from KAIKA's clients

ENGLISH: お客様の声

A lot of thoughts that were not organized in my head became clear through coaching, as if a cloudy sky became sunny. With that, I was able to move forward, prepared to work in that path.  It became a reason to think about how to move forward, and look for my possibilities in a calming way.  Through coaching, and being gently pushed forward, I was able to see different worlds, and move forward.
