where people experience freedom
by connecting to their innate power,
through presence, radical acceptance and joy
They say we can understand the slender threads of our lives only as we follow them and see where they take us.
I started my career in marketing research, a field where I used both my analytical and synthetic skills. I was drawn to the fast-paced environment, where I learned quickly and got many opportunities for career development. As years went by, my curiosity and ambition led me to branch out and create a unique set of abilities and skills. After nearly a decade of experience in various business areas, I started to take on challenging roles, that were newly created in the organizations and which allowed me to refine my leadership skills.
In the background, I was fascinated by psychology. Got my second degree in this field, completed various courses in areas such as NLP, Jungian psychology or mindfulness, all leading to my training as a psychotherapist and coach.
As I started to implement my human development knowledge into the corporate world, I saw the value it brings and the shifts in team dynamics & performance. Fully immersing myself in this work was just a step away.
As I was going through this journey I could not envision where all these experiences will lead. Looking back, everything looks perfectly laid out so that I get to become the person I am today. By bringing to the table all my business experience together with a keen understanding of human transformation, I can support other people in turning personal and professional challenges into their next stepping stone and bringing to light their own purpose and meaning.
Behind the scenes
What is my North Star: contributing and making a difference, witnessing the amazing work of my clients and the progress they are making. Doing this meaningful work while nourishing my freedom and authenticity
What keeps me grounded: moving my body (through long walks, pilates, yoga, fitness, biking, roller skating, hiking…), connecting to nature, my close friends, cooking (eating!), breathwork
What keeps my fire burning: coffee, exploring (inner and outer), travelling, snowboarding, laughing, volunteering, love and intimacy. Also, from time to time a full tray of baked potatoes with lots of garlic.
