Find Life Coach | Meet Svetlana Banks: How to Rediscover Your True Self and Unleash Your Genius?


Svetlana Banks is one of the coaches that we found this month and we did a little interview with her. She impressed us with her positivity and strength of character.

She designed a career path as unique and compelling as the stories she shared with us. From the genesis of her educational voyage, where ink met paper in journalism courses, to the flourishing vistas of motivational speaking across continents, her narrative is one of resilience and unwavering belief in the transformative power of words. Her mission is clear: to illuminate the path towards self realization and profound personal growth.

She shares insights into their coaching style, honed through a kaleidoscope of experiences spanning journalism, psychology, and profound encounters with diverse audiences. Central to her approach is the belief that each individual possesses an innate genius, often obscured beneath the debris of societal expectations. Through a fusion of introspection and body awareness, she guides her clients on a voyage of self discovery, unlocking doors to fulfillment and unleashing the dormant potential within.

Her spirit is strong and that helped her overcome her obstacles and live her dream life now. But perhaps most striking is the personal odyssey that shaped her coaching philosophy, a testament to overcoming disbelief and forging a life of boundless possibility despite being diagnosed with an incurable disease and told she will not live to be five years old. Now she is happily married and living her dream life. Here is what she said.

Meet Life Coach Svetlana Banks:


Name: Svetlana Banks

Pillar: The Spirit, The Mind

Who is this coach for: Anyone who wants to rediscover their true selves and live the best version of their life.

How they can help: By using various coaaching tools, techniques, and methods that help people reframe the way they see themselves and what they can achieve in life.

First of all, how are you and your family doing after these Pandemic times?

For my husband and me, the pandemic period was very fruitful.

During this time, I improved my professional skills, and he also enrolled in university and continues to advance his career.

Many found it very difficult to endure the time away from the streets, restaurants, and entertainment, and it was hard to be at home surrounded by family members, but not us.

We like spending time at home, we enjoy cooking something delicious and then watching movies together.

So, this time turned out not to be so scary.

We were only worried about our relatives and close ones who were sick.

How did the coronavirus pandemic affect your clients? Did it affect you at all?

The pandemic has impacted my clients in the sense that many have suffered from severe illness, some have lost loved ones, and others have developed a fear of leaving their homes or interacting with people due to the risk of infection.

As a result, another spectrum of life issues has emerged that needed to be addressed.

What are the biggest lessons that you learned in this pandemic?

If you’re bored when alone with yourself, if you’re tired of your loved ones, it’s definitely time to change something in your life.

The Origin:

Tell us about you, your career, how you started with your coaching career?

My education began with a deep belief in the power of words.

Initially, I completed journalism courses and wrote articles on various social topics.

Wanting to develop professionally, I entered the University of Printing Arts.

During this time, I also wrote a book and published it.

This book is a collection of stories about real people and their love stories.

I wrote about couples that made an impression on me, where one of the spouses was seriously ill.

My reflections and belief in love became the foundation for this book.

Later, I received many responses from people who found hope through this book.

As interacting with people has always held a very important place in my life, I started studying psychology.

For several years, I conducted various meetings as a motivational speaker in many cities.

I spoke on topics of relationships, faith, love, and suffering to a wide range of audiences.

These included future doctors, students, high school seniors, parents of children with disabilities, and teachers.

Each meeting led to new acquaintances and new communications.

All this formed the basis of my subsequent education.

I became a life coach.

In this profession, my skills in writing and speaking, my deep faith in the power of words, and my years of experience interacting with people and audiences are deeply involved.

Long before I became a certified life coach, I noticed that it was very easy for me to inspire someone, see their uniqueness and individuality, and help them see it for themselves.

In this way, some people found their profession, while others entered into the relationships they had dreamed of.

Many have told me that they feel different around me, they come alive in spirit.

I’m glad that I can now use my ability professionally.

What was your biggest obstacle that you had to overcome in your life that made you who you are today?

When I was three years old, I was diagnosed with an incurable disease that, according to doctors, should have stopped my lifespan at five years old.

Nobody told me I would be happy, and it was very difficult to believe in my happiness when nobody even believed I had a future.

But now I am happily married and have many wonderful friends.

I have been on three continents, seen a few oceans, and visited many countries.

The biggest obstacle is when you encounter disbelief.

Disbelief in your ability to succeed, in your worthiness, in your future, and in your potential for happiness.

I have found a unique remedy for this.

I am eager to share it with my clients.

If none of the problems I had to face stopped me on the path to happiness and the opportunity to live a fulfilled life, then I can help those who are looking for fulfillment in their life and who strive to achieve big goals.

The Coaching Style:

How do you innovate with coaching your clients?

Every client is like a separate universe, which is why the approach and coaching will change each time depending on the specific person and the specific situation.

There are no two people alike or any two lives that are the same.

Even the way we develop in utero happens differently each time, despite some similarities in the process.

Each of us has our own individual path, our own unique story.

My task as a coach is to help the client see this path, recognize their uniqueness, uncover their strengths, and unlock their potential.

What’s unique about your coaching approach?

I help people reconnect with their minds and bodies to discover a fulfilled life and achieve their wildest dreams.

First and foremost, I help to uncover the genius with which a person was born into this world, and which, as a rule, over time, a person loses under the ruins of imposed stereotypes of desires, opinions, and feelings.

I help return to one’s true essence, to understand “who I am” and “what I really want”.

Often, we start with simple desires and feelings, with the development of the simple skill of understanding oneself, with the perception of one’s body.

The image of a person’s body is another profound and very important topic and sphere of a person’s life.

How I perceive myself in my body, how comfortable I am, how much I like myself, how well I understand my desires… reveals much deeper levels of personality.

If something is wrong with the perception of one’s body, if a person dislikes how they look, feels insecure among people, and does not always understand their desires, then moving with this to something greater, success in personal life, business prosperity, and so on, makes no sense.

It’s necessary to deal with this visible, tangible sphere in order to have the opportunity to move towards something more concealed or spiritual.

What benefits do your clients get after working with you?

I believe I won’t be mistaken if I say that after our sessions, a person will never be the same, something will change forever, and this something is for the better.

The most fundamental and most valuable thing I want for each client to find in our sessions is a greater understanding of themselves.

If they experience this meeting with their authentic self or simply learn something more about themselves, that is the main value of our sessions.

Do you use any specific tools to be efficient with your clients?

I have used a wide variety of techniques, tailored to the individuality of the person and their personal request.

Anyone who wants to see the effectiveness of these methods and tools is welcome to my sessions!

The Impact:

If you had a super megaphone that, when you speak into, the whole world will hear your message, what would you say?

Our thoughts lead to actions, our actions shape our lives.

We make choices every second, every minute, every day, and all of this is reflected in the reality we currently inhabit.

If you want to change your life, if you dream of something in the future, you need to start with your thoughts.

You need to change the small and large choices you make.

It’s necessary to arrive at a conscious living of one’s life, it’s really worth it.

What is the greatest lesson you have learned in your life?

Love is the foundation and fulfillment of life.

Love fills relationships, work, and creativity with meaning.

It is the measure of our worth.

Your final thoughts?

Nothing to add.
