I have always felt a passion for helping people. A passion that led me to learn and understand more about how to work with our brains, our bodies, to help us move forward. Over the course of the past 6 years, I have spent more time engaging that enthusiasm and learning what motivates people and makes them happy.
I began my journey into Well-being by following a coaching course and emerging a very proud accredited IAPC&M Coach. I further expanded my own knowledge and have studied Science of Well-being at the University of Yale, Positive Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, Happiness principles for optimal living (The Happy Course) with The Happiness Research Institute and the Power of Embodied Presence with some of the leading coaches in the field, including Richard Strozzi from the Strozzi institute; as well as continually improving my knowledge and developing my skills as a coach as part of a global master coaching program.
I’ve got a zest for life, for living it to our best, for developing ourselves and never stop learning and evolving. I believe we all have the power to achieve whatever we want in life, if we put our hearts and minds to it.
I am also an eternal, unashamed and helpless optimistic.
I love all things creative and take pride in presenting new ways of seeing situations, solving problems or coming up with solutions and opportunities.
As for my own journey… a few years ago I reached a point where my promising career was just not enough. I had everything (on paper). I had it all… except I really didn’t have it all. I realised I was making enough money to not have to look at my bank account at the end of the month, I had a house, a car and lovely friends…which I never got to see or enjoy life with because I was too busy.
So, I took a break, quit my job and went travelling. Met wonderful people around the world, saw some of the most beautiful places on earth and mostly learnt to be in the moment, enjoy what I had and got to really know me. I made a truthful, direct connection with my heart and soul. I transformed myself and became a more grounded, happier and self-aware person.
Then I came back home, to a country deep in the economic crisis. Far from bringing me down, I saw this as an opportunity to carry on with my own development and enriching my personal journey; which led me to England, where I live to this date and where I have found the love of my life, formed a family and establish a business and life I love.
Some call it being lucky, I like to call it being aware – I was knee deep living on autopilot, unaware of all the things that were keeping me busy but miserable. Once I made the choice to stop and reflect I realised that dream life was nothing but.
And really, this is sometimes all it takes: stop, reflect and open up.
