AFONSO MALÓ FRANCO

Former Captain U-18 Rugby National Team | Master’s Degree Final year Kingston Business School

"Working with Psy.D. Ana Ramires, was a privilege. When I look back, I look at Sports Psychology as a tool box for life. Throughout continuous work Ana made me realize why I would feel a particular emotion during the game, in what way it would impair my performance and what strategy to apply. She has helped me to set goals and to manage my performance. I have accumulated these "tools" and the funniest thing is that I am constantly using them during my day-to-day professional life. What I’ve learnt is totally transferable to all the challenges I’ve faced, whether on a sporting, professional or personal level. It was an amazing work and, eventually, we were left with a close friendship, relationship. Thank you Ana!"

AFONSO TAIRA

Professional Soccer Player, Kiryat Shmona (Israel)

"Years of growth do not diminish my admiration for Psy.D. Ana's work. The more you work with the Dr the more you realize her genius in human and evolutionary perception and sensitivity. Above all, continuous improvement is the key to her process. A key which is, as well, a 'tip' for life."

 

ALEXANDRA MALÓ

Director Branding, Marketing, Communication, Design & Image - Malo Clinic Group

"To achieve success it isn't enough to be a visionary, one must know how to direct one's actions, and act with confidence and determination.

If there wouldn't be focused professional help, one would seldom get past the dream state."

ALEXANDRE REAL

Partner, SFORI

“Ana Ramires is an excellent professional with an extreme sensitivity and superior technical knowledge.

Her insight is a talent and a personal development accelerator.

I recommend Ana without any reserves for the field of personal development and high performance.”

ANA ISABEL DIAS

Musician - Harpist

“An example of accuracy, exigency and generosity.”

ANA RITA GOMES

Beach Volleyball Coach

“Sailing in high competition is science, art and instinct.

We have to know how to coordinate and foster competencies and knowledge in different domains of performance. But above all, sensitivity is needed to choose and use them both efficiently and effectively in a specific context and circumstance.

We are never alone in this course. It is mandatory to know how to listen and observe all incoming messages. But most of all it is necessary to grasp them with accuracy. Sailing with the strong hand of Ana Ramires helps us maintain clarity and tranquility, both required in the decision-making process.

She helps us understand that the same sound of wind may be listened by the crew in various different tones and that even the same current may be felt in the same direction but at different speeds. 

She helps us clear the soul from installed winds and currents in such a way, that incoming messages brought about by new winds and currents become clearer and allow us to make choices in the best state of mind. 

She helps us to win!”

ANTÓNIO RODRIGUES

EMEL Training Department

“It’s not hard to define the quality of the work developed by Ana Bispo Ramires.

The difficult part is to define it in a few words or without seeming excessive.

I am very grateful for having the privilege of working together with Ana Ramires and I hope to count on her commitment, professionalism and motivation capacity for future projects.”

CATARINA ROQUE DA FONSECA

Psychologist

“Together with the dedication that she has to each client/project she embraces, Ana has an the enormous ease  in understanding both what it is she is facing and its context. She also has unique therapeutic qualities at the intervention level,  providing tailored tools to each client and adapting them to their own timing and pace. This allows the client to recover the control of his life and to progress with his objectives and achieve personal and/or professional growth.

Ana Ramires also possesses the capacity to intervene in punctual situations and in crisis moments, attenuating the emotional phases of great disorganization, giving back to the weakened individual the perception of bigger serenity, control and less suffering.”

CARLA ALMEIDA

Businesswoman

“Ana Ramires belongs to the group of the “Outstanding Ones”.

I had the chance of observing Ana in an audience and she has that singular and unusual capacity of touching each individual, even if in front of a varied audience.

It is like being part of a therapy-group. She observes, sees and always says something different, unique, and way forward of what anyone else has observed, seen or said. She surgically 'touches' where she has to 'touch'. She makes those questions that makes us think, and helps us to become aware of what is necessary to later make better decisions and get better results. 

She’s a model. World class performance!

Congratulations and thanks Ana!”

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.

FILIPE FERREIRA

Partner SFORI

“The partnership that unites us to Ana is more than just a commercial relation, where training, coaching or behavioral and psychological interventions services are bought. Availability, openness and understanding have been a solid base where we have built our relation and from which we currently develop projects truly together.

The scientific contributions, founded in deep experience, amplify the excellent opportunity that we have to share moments of human development.

For everything she is and represents, Ana Ramires undoubtedly is to SFORI an indispensable and irreplaceable Partner.”

HUGO MARTINS

Dancer, Producer and Creative

“Already 20 years have gone by of sharing with Ana Ramires, as a high performance athlete, as an artist, as an artistic manager and as a person….

With her helping hand I took one of the most important decisions in my life: I abandoned my career as TAP Portugal pilot to dedicate myself to what truly makes my eyes sparkle. Like that, without fear and against all expectations, I became a dancer and subsequently producer and artistic manager.

With a rare capacity of surgically isolate the essential out of the accessory in any given thematic, Ana is able to, invariably, identify the conduct patterns that, in each moment, limit us, giving us back the power to create our own reality in accordance with our objectives. 

I still continue nowadays, to transform and to recreate myself at each conversation we have, and also have the privilege to closely witness her achievements and conquers. Thanks.”

INÊS FERNANDES

High Performance Nutrition

“Ana exudes knowledge, creativity, competence and integrity, combining all this qualities with a unique Human spirit.

It is a privilege for me to learn daily by developing my professional activity by her side.”

 "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.”

 

JOSÉ RAMALHO

Businessman

"I met Ana in a leadership training. Ana coordinated the training whose practical component was given by the Marines, and the theoretical component covered a diversity of themes with experts from each one of those fields to moderate their respective debates. It was a quite interesting activity but, above all, it was my wake-up call to the fact that, both in performance and personal performance, it is "out of the box" that we find paths to solutions and answers that we often seek without being aware of the need.

I asked Ana to help me out and.....  a true "storm in my brain" started; which until then, and well settled in life, only complained of routine excess and of the limitation that a corporate manager has, developing and creating his field of business. Anyway, the usual for usual people in usual businesses....

It wasn’t difficult to quickly come to the conclusion that it is possible to change, it is possible to do more and better, it is possible to be happier and have more time, and moreover.... that all this change depends upon ourselves, exclusively. It sounds simple and it is, it isn’t easy though, and it is a process!!!

"Personal coaching" is actually, a very specific, a very technical activity, it has its methods and when done well, it has the amazing effect of bringing about small changes of habits, attitudes, more objective analyses that lead us to clearer interpretations and more accurate decisions. The result is a clear shift in focus, leadership style and strategic thinking/vision. Eventually, the result is a major change.

What does change around us?? In the overall atmosphere we can say that nothing changes, but in our scope of intervention, the change is gradual and trending towards increasingly clearer.

 Congratulations to Ana who, in my case, was able to identify my condition, my profile and helped me make a personal change which can be called evolution. By defining small objectives and simple reflection exercises, and joined by Ana, I went into an adjusted process of constant surmounting with exceeding results.

Actually, the solution isn’t far away, it's indeed lying very close and within each one of us.

Unlocking is totally needed, and so is correct guidance and it makes all the difference to do it with professional help; and if possible, with the best!!!"

LEONOR RAMALHO

Dressage Rider

"It’s of no use to have the greatest talent in the world if we do not have guidance. It’s of no use training 12 hours a day if we aren’t going in the correct direction.

Ah! And when I speak of guidance, it has to be the correct one, or we run the risk of falling short of our abilities.

This is what Psy.D. Ana represents for me, the correct orientation. She gives me the tools so that I can make the most of my talent."

MARIA JOÃO GOUVEIA

ISPA-IU University Teacher

“I know Ana Ramires since we were colleagues at ISPA-IU. We have cooperate in the teaching, training and  development of psychological and behavioral competences. Ana is a person endowed with an extraordinary clear thought, entrepreneurial capacity, determination and positive ambition towards the people with whom she works with. No one stays the same after working with Ana Ramires.”

MARTA SILVA

HR Manager AOC Group

“Ana was invited to work with us in a project of “inner inspiration”, communicating with, following and preparing our professionals to face the various goals aimed by the organization during that year. 

The fact that she is a highly qualified professional, specifically in the area of training and optimizing human competences, and together with her huge professional experience in various contexts, provide her with an almost immediate  ability for organization analysis and  approaching individuals.

She is a dedicated professional, kind and simple, fundamental qualities to the engagement of our colleagues in this action. She always leaves a long for “exploring and developing more”. 

For all these reasons, I leave my personal wishes and those from AOC group of an excellent success in another upcoming challenge that she embraces.”

MIGUEL FARO VIEIRA

Training Director Academia Refer

“I met Ana Ramires 20 years ago when she was my student and since then we have maintained a close relation. 

The successful career that she has achieved as clinical psychologist and as coach during her professional life speak by itself.

Nevertheless, I would highlight her sensibility to understand and help others, the energy and perseverance that she places in everything she does, her unique critical sense to promote self-reflection and changes in people, her integrity and free spirit facing life.

It is a privilege for me to be Ana's friend and colleague.”

PEDRO MARQUES

Global Lead Football Performance (Coaching Methodology and Performance Analysis) City Football Group

"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."

PEDRO MENDES

Performer and Asthanga Yoga Teacher

“Being at the highest physical and psychological level to face a career, is a challenging project of high complexity. But, without a doubt, working with Ana Ramires in the development of my potential, raising it to the highest level of performance, was the biggest challenge of all. 

One of the main learnings I made during my working process of “coaching for performance” was how to explore my potential in an independent way in a daily basis. As former athlete, professional dancer, choreographer, Ashtanga vinyasa yoga teacher and as a physical coach for high performance athletes, I know that from the greatest challenges the greatest successes are born. 

The success resulting from the work with Ana Ramires resulted in a present partnership in projects to foster performance, by which the body and mind synchronize efforts to achieve bigger objectives.”

 

RAQUEL ÁLVARO

Jazz singer musician, Composer

"Working with Ana transformed me, I became more honest with myself and the process of recognizing emotions, gave me the openness to work on the problems that were incapacitating me both in my personal and professional life.

The set of personalized strategies, physical exercise and the development of critical and practical sense, has lowered my anxiety and my stress levels in an unimaginable way.

This inner change and the change of perspective on life, has helped me to live in the moment and to keep me healthy physically and mentally. Only this way it has been possible to persist in the face of difficulties and reach step by step the objectives I have set myself to. Now, I have to continue to work in order to be able to live and grow as a Jazz musician and singer."

I believe that working with Ana has helped me to materialize an absolutely fundamental journey which allows me now and in the future, to live the life I want to live.

REGINA BRANDÃO

Sports Psicologist (Luiz Filipe Scolari)

“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.”

 

RICARDO DINIZ

Solo Sailor

“In my journey of life there is a clear difference between the before and after of working with Ana Ramires.

These have been fascinating years of self-discovery and evolution.

Ana always managed to find the trigger points needed to untie this and that knot, thus helping me to move forward with even more strength.

It is totally safe to say that working with Ana Ramires was absolutely essential in the success of my projects during the past 10 years.

Thanks for everything Ana!”

RICARDO JANOTA

Professional Soccer Player, Tondela (Portugal)

"To be followed-up by a high-performance psychologist helped me to focus on myself and in what I control. It allowed me to create strategies to cope with, overcome and grow with adversity; and above all, to value positive actions, not negative ones. I feel like a more complete and confident athlete."

 

RICARDO PERES

Second Coach of Portuguese Football Team

“From my professional relation with Ana Ramires a sense of organization, development and decision making skills were brought to the various contexts of my life.

The stimulus for reasoning and subsequent scenario anticipation, represents an added value to a systemic  planning and its adaptation to each reality. 

I had a 100% increase in the performance of my professional activity, baring in mind that in working with Ana Ramires, we gain the perception of another 1000%  margin of progress in each of us.”

SIMÃO ALMEIDA

High Performance Athlete Men’s Artistic Gymnastics GCP | Portugal’s National Team

"As a high-performance athlete, the focus is often aimed at the moment of competition and everything else that can be worked upon, outside this short and specific moment, stays unexplored. With Ana I’ve learnt to “train” in training and outside it, to then simply "reproduce” in competition.

All these teachings and challenges that I’ve been exposed to working with Ana have helped me to better understand the person I am, to change what needs to be changed and to accept what needs to be accepted. All the growth on my athlete’s facet is, and will always be, accompanied by equal personal development. Thank you, Ana"

“When the soul gets sick…

Only angels can make it return!

 

My tribute, in eternal recognition, to the high scientific competence professional, with a sense of moral civility, worthy of mention as a reference.

I have learned to read life….”

VITOR GOMES

Banco Popular Coordinator Director

“Ana is a 360º woman.

Highly qualified trainer with an integrative and global view of time and people. Extraordinary capacity of involvement and of active provocation, she transmitted me passion in movement, strategic sense, trust and creative intelligence, strength and  the will to believe and dream. 

With a refined pragmatic sense, she transported me with great accuracy and analytic quality, to the decisive aspects of searching and developing excellency solutions, with enthusiasm, freedom, awareness and constructive reflection about behavioral and personality adjustments, in a context of permanent change.” 

ANONIMOUS

"She follows the individual in a practical and achievable process, providing him with objective strategies and tools, minimizing the impact of “life accidents”, using them as leverage tools."

 

"She manages to enhance the positive characteristics and to adjust the negatives ones, through an unpaired logical process, validating trust and conviction in our capacity to fully fulfill our aimed goals."

 

"Sagacity allied to an ever curious spirit, in the search for the maximum extent of the Human potential."

 

"She helps to achieve performance optimization in the Being's various dimensions, in a personal or systemic manner, respecting and boosting the unique characteristics of the individual, in an unshakeable ethical conduct."

 

"I would characterize Ana as the first TRANSformer that I have met – with an extreme ease to understand and reach the essence of the human being, boosting his characteristics in a such way it attunes the individual with his life project (personal or professional), with a notorious impact at the level of excellency of teams and the cultural organization of a company."
