“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

Albert Einstein


“You have to find what sparks a light in you so that you in your own way can illuminate the world.”

Oprah Winfrey

Yanina Trubchanka

Professional Co-Active Coach, Interpersonal Mediator

I am a co-active coach and interpersonal mediator.

I consider myself as an authentic leader and a woman with integrity sprinkled with consistency and persistence. I am passionate about human nature, individuals’ interactions, people’s relations and systems, where they evolve.

I am a citizen of the world. I have lived and worked in Belarus, Italy, the USA, France, Luxembourg and Belgium. I speak Russian, English, French and some Italian.

I was born and grew up in Belarus. My family transmitted to me the values of peace, tolerance and patience, which still resonate with me and guide me in my life. Knowing my values helps me to reveal these of my coaching clients and cherish them.

From an early age I was immersed in Italian culture which opened my eyes to the world and awakened my passion for exploring cultures. It fine tuned my ability to acknowledge and accept other cultures’ dimensions and attributes. In coaching, it keeps me aware of preconceived ideas.

During my University studies I had a chance to work in the USA-my first time living abroad all by myself. In my 20s a quest to discoveries and curiosity for the foreign world brought me to Europe. I came to study in France and started to build my life there together with my future husband.

In 2007 Belgium became the country where I started to evolve in my career. Luxembourg expanded my professional opportunities and reinforced my wish to work internationally.

From today’s perspective I learned how to overcome major life-changing events and could be absolutely present with my clients’ exploration around this topic.

Nowadays I live in Brussels with my husband and kids.

While working within various international environments, I realised that multilingualism, cultural mixing, and confessional diversity are the important components of my microcosm.

The inspirations for my work come from travelling, poetry, cinema and the theatre, learning new languages, reading, and sharing my time with the family and friends.
