Angela Di Paola (MSW, PSW) is an author, self development coach and consultant. For as long as she can remember, Angela has been interested in understanding what makes people tick and how she can best be there for them. To that end, she has earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in social work. For the past 11 years, she has dedicated her career to helping people, both as a coach and as a professional social worker.
In her capacity as a social worker for the Montreal General Hospital and the Montreal Center for Anxiety and Depression, Angela has provided support and crisis counselling to hundreds of people and their families. Angela works hard to assist her clients, who are undergoing complex and oftentimes devastating obstacles. She continues to be amazed and humbled by their strength and resiliency. Angela’s work, here especially, and in her interactions with others, is the reason you will often hear her say, “People are so much stronger than they realize!”
Angela has founded her own coaching practice where she helps her clients achieve the goals that matter to them. Compassionate and direct, she relentlessly brings out her clients’ strengths and capacities as well as provides them with the tools to overcome the obstacles holding them back.
She is very excited to be developing two new programs that will launch in the new year:
Taking Back Your Time – an intensive six-month program geared towards empowering women to give back to themselves and to do things on their own terms
Strategy Sessions – a simple three-session game plan where goals and the means to attain them are mapped out in concrete ways
Angela is recently married to the love of her life. She and her husband love their little one (the cat) very much. The cat tolerates their existence and allows them to share its space, so long as the food keeps coming.
