The founding of The Reset
One thing became clear after many years in the corporate world: stress and burnout are common challenges. It was our desire to 'Live in Joy' - not just during weekends and holidays, but every day - that led us on this journey of personal growth and development. In doing so we found our calling and passion, and created a company that helps transform the way we approach work and life.
Quitting work or all your responsibilities is no guarantee for joy. In partnership with our clients and companies, we remove the barriers that are preventing us from moving forward and causing us to feel stuck and burned out.
Jomar & Sophie
We are two comically different people who connected over a love of travel, wine, and bread. The Reset is the manifestation of a dream we had of the future: to live in Joy. Mix Latin passion, Dutch groundedness, American boldness, and European common sense, and you get us. All of our offerings reflect this eclectic mix, including individual coaching, virtual group series, corporate trainings, and keynote speeches.
Both Jomar and Sophie are certified professional coaches (CPC), Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioners, and accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) as Associate Certified Coaches. Jomar is also a Positive Intelligence® certified coach.
How does 1:1 coaching work?
Partnering 1:1 with a coach creates clarity, reduces doubts and fears, and helps you move forward toward your true goals.
Above all, it's a place of refuge, a safe place, a place for you to think. This time is dedicated to you and your goals, dreams, obstacles, and stumbling blocks. Pause, reassess, take action.
If you feel ready (or maybe a little uncomfortably excited), you can book a free exploratory call. You will get a chance to experience our approach to coaching, and we will explore what it would be like to work together in 90 minutes.
Best of all, these 90 minutes come with no obligation: we are ready when you are.
We believe in the power of transformation, in bringing joy and passion into our lives, and above all, in living purposefully.
Coaching is not magic. It is conscious work.
And we're committed to that work.
How do I know if I want to work with Jomar or Sophie?
Both Jomar and Sophie are trained in the same method and philosophy, but come with wildly different life experiences. You can read Jomar's story here, and Sophie's here.
Based on those stories, who resonated most with you? Don't overthink it, go with your gut and book that exploratory call. It's totally fine if after that exploratory call you want to talk to the other coach, too!
This is about your journey, and you get to decide how you want to experience it. Including who will be your friendly coach-guide!
Working with Sophie is a must and has been an exciting journey. Every session helped to clear my thoughts and left me with an increase in energy, a sense of clarity and empowerment.
Jomar is a fantastic high energetic reliable creative & well rounded life coach. Her nice & gentle style and support has helped me tremendously.
Why you can trust us:
The International Coach Federation (ICF) provides certifications to coaches who uphold their high-quality, professional, and ethical standards in their coaching, and are committed to continuing their training to do so.
Founding The 1 Reset, Jomar and Sophie both wanted to have these certifications linked to our names, and our company. We are committed, and proud of our education.
In ICF's words:
Anyone can call themselves a coach. But ICF-credentialed coaches are professionals who have met stringent education and experience requirements, and have demonstrated a thorough understanding of the coaching competencies that set the standard in the profession. Additionally, they adhere to strict ethical guidelines as part of ICF’s mission to protect and serve coaching consumers.
Jomar and Sophie met during their training at iPEC, a coaching organization that has been accredited by the ICF for over 20 years. The training takes at least 9 months, after which the designation of Certified Professional Coach (CPC) is earned.
Both Jomar and Sophie continued their education with iPEC to become a Master Practitioner in Energy Leadership Index, and added another ~8 months of training to become COR.E Dynamics Specialists in Leadership, and in Transition.
We have added Positive Intelligence to our toolbox through Jomar's certification, and Sophie is currently working towards her Happiness Studies certification.
This is all to say that we don't just wing it. For our clients, we are committed to developing the capabilities, the skills, and the standards that make us the best coach possible. We joyfully put in the hours, the work, the mentoring, so we can serve you.
Remember: it's not magic. It's commitment. We are committed to our mission to live in Joy and to create a community of like-minded people who believe work, life and everything in between can be rewarding and enjoyable. We are committed to giving individuals the power to consciously make choices that are aligned with their goals and desires. These credentials are tokens of that commitment.
