«Working with Ana was a privilege, the generosity of her soul and her firm convictions were essential to our partnership in the Portuguese team. Ana has moderation, timing and feel when working with people; she represents an innovative psychology that seeks qualities and potential in the human being.»Read More
«An experience that translates into enhanced insight coupled with multiple routines and a larger ability to control them, anticipate scenarios, and improve readiness and performance in them. Discovering and clearly outlining a new stage both professionally and personally. The opportunity to share and discuss feelings and goals with someone, experienced and professional, in the psychological dimension. Someone who is supportive but also challenging. This has clearly brought a different perspective on the reflections on one’s own or with friends.
«It was in a natural way that Psy.D. Ana has been awakening me to my side as a leader, a manager of a company with responsibilities to the public. It helps enormously to have someone to “break down” problems and make them into challenges/solutions. And these in turn, also make us grow in the future, both personally and professionally.»Read More
«To speak about the work I have done for 5 years with Psy.D. Ana Ramires, is not an easy task. I came convinced that I was just going to, as if that was not enough, consolidate my work of self-knowledge and personal development and I ended up living a real revolution in myself and consequently in my life. What I think is most fascinating is the simple way Dr Ana Ramires explains each situation. You cannot start the “complicographer”. She immediately pulls the rug from under and “often sends me to the floor.” And that is wonderful, because as I always learn new tools to exceed myself, I react increasingly faster and calmer to situations that would have made me very stressed before. I recognize that today I have a lot more skills in stress management, more ability to think in perspective, greater speed in generating solutions in the face of adversity, greater capacity for multitasking and I have even more drive in actions. Overall, there are many impacts I feel from the work done with Dr Ana Ramires. First of all, a larger capacity to understand what is happening to me, what is behind certain attitudes that I’ve had, or emotions that I’ve lived. Secondly, a much bigger emotional endurance and an awareness of the resilient person I am. Third, to realize the vast inner strength that I’ve always had and channel it in the right direction. Fourth, the growth in speed and effectiveness of my response, in the face of adversity. Fifth, the significant decrease of stress levels and in red line moments. Sixth, a much larger capacity to manage the diverse areas of my life and the time I dedicate to each one of them. And finally, to know how to sort priorities out. This experience with Psy.D. Ana Ramires, has been an endurance training, with several tests in between, in which in some, we learn and win and in others we only learn, which “sharpens” my athlete’s mind even more. For all this, I am extremely grateful to her.
«Working with Ana was an interesting journey of self-knowledge. The simple, but very sharp way in which it confronts us with our own contradictions, how she challenges us to question our pre-conceived ideas, to question our daily attitudes driven by the “force of habit”. This helped me to evolve to new levels of performance both in my professional and personal life.
Its broad approach to seeking balance through the combination of the emotional dimension with themes such as food and exercise, is an amazingly effective way that prepares us for the challenges of a demanding day-to-day.
The friendly, close and sweet tone of voice always made me feel that I was not talking to a professional, but to a friend.»
«I started working with Ana, at a crossroads in my professional life, when it seems that nothing works or that nothing makes sense.
Ana first helped me to get to know myself better, to know what my strengths are (and weaknesses too) and, mainly, to define what I want to do and how.
It also helped me to know how to relate better with my colleagues, teams and leaders, with small (big) analysis and relationship tips that made and make all the difference.
The impact of this work on a professional but also a personal level was enormous and, although it is never finished, here is a “thank you”!»
«Working with Ana Ramires and making sure that you don’t leave a conversation without taking something new, that makes you think, reflect and impacts your life, in the future and in your daily life. It is a breath of fresh air, reflection and alertness to what really matters: maximum performance, but always associated with our mental and physical quality of life. It is a constant attempt to see the same subjects from different perspectives, with easier, more humane and more rational solutions, even when there is a lot of tension, nerves and anxiety. Ana is an excellent professional, who effectively adds value to our lives. She is a professional that I recommend, without any doubt, to all people in the world, in high performance positions. I conclude by saying that I am lucky to have met Ana Ramires, recommended by Fátima Lopes, whom I will thank forever.»Read More
«I started working with Ana at the end of 2011 and it was undoubtedly a help, a great learning on a personal and professional level (although, initially, I thought that only the professional part would be addressed). In fact, any event in my personal and professional life was used to further increase my self-knowledge: Why had it happened? What had my contribution been? What could you fix, maintain or improve? We organized all the information about what had happened and discussed, adapted and trained strategies and tools to integrate into my day-to-day and work life, facilitating a feeling of growth and continuous learning. I felt more and more prepared to overcome the situations that appeared to me ahead and, above all, with the right tools to more easily go into “Flow mode” while training and competing, enjoying every moment of my actions. It was certainly a great pillar in my life, not only professionally but personally. A fantastic job, which I just must thank her, because for me it was one of the most important people I worked with and that made me evolve.»Read More
