Alessandra PattiMental Wellbeing Strategist and Communication Trainer
Passionate about prevention through the power of education, I offer mental wellbeing strategy guidance to organizations. How? With mental wellbeing workshops and communication trainings.
I’m Alessandra, the founder of FindYourWay Coaching. I was born in Italy and since 2009 I'm based in Zurich, Switzerland.
My company offers guidance to organizations in the form of mental wellbeing coaching and communication trainings with special attention to prevention of mental distress. Doing prevention is on one side to take care of our mental health, and on the other side is to learn how to communicate in a compassionate, sustainable and assertive way, so that our mental wellbeing is not negatively impacted.
How does this translate into practice? By working with teams and individuals. My offer includes upskilling trainings in assertive and sustainable communication, team coaching sessions on wellbeing topics and mental health first aid certifications and/or awareness sessions. Every month I present my work during a free virtual session called "Breakfast with Wellbeing".
My background is in adults' education, languages and marketing. I work in 4 languages and across very different industries. My content is evidence-based and I always offer the latest information of global trends on mental health.
After having worked in corporate communications for 7 years, I founded my company, and changed my career path by getting a diploma in psychology, coaching and becoming a certified mental health first aid trainer. I partner up with meaningful organizations in Switzerland that I believe in, such as Pro Mente Sana, and I am their official partner for mental health first aid courses in English and Italian.
I was featured on the "20 Minuten" magazine for having lead one of the first public mental health first aid courses in English in Zurich: Psychische Gesundheit: Lernen, über Suizid zu reden - 20 Minuten
