About Me

Life Coach | NLP Master Practitioner | MSc Psychology

Dear Amazing Woman, 

First of all, congratulations on taking a step towards designing your life. I know on the outside you seem to have things put together, but let's face it, you also battle with believing in yourself. Your negative self-talk gets in the way of reaching your full potential and you've likely stuffed those "pesky" emotions so deep you're not even sure what they mean anymore. 

It takes a lot of energy to keep up the facade. I know, I've been there. People pleasing, perfectionism, needing approval, terrified of judgement and pretending to have it all together were my go-to crutches. I'm here to let you know there are easier and healthier ways to live. I've worked with several coaches to get to where I am today and my goal is to share everything I've learned with you. 

 

It's about defining who you are while creating your version of happy. No more comparison to someone's social media they-are-happier-than-me profiles, no more people pleasing and no more settling! It's time to learn who you truly are! 

You are phenomenal and deserve to see

yourself as the rockin' woman you are! 

To support my clients on their personal development journey I mainly make use of my experience. I also have an MSc in Psychology. I'm a Life Coach, certified by an organization accredited by the ICF (International Coaching Federation) and I'm an NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) Master Practitioner. I also have some other fancy certificates. If you’re interested, you can check them out below.
