Welcome to my website!
I’ve created this Web site as a source of inspiration for you who want:
– to improve your personal development
– to boost your health and wellness
– to leverage the quality of your life in general.
As a personal Counsellor and coach, I know that whatever you want, whatever you dream of, there is always a way to achieve it! Yours!
You were born with all the wisdom you need to achieve your dreams. All you may additionally need, is to see and then turn yourself towards the direction you want. Perhaps you have it all, and just need to recognize it. Some of you may need to work a bit more on yourself, and look closer to your deepest goals. Maybe you need more clarity on your goals. Some others, may just need a small push to start getting what you were ready for.
I strongly believe that it is your responsibility to replace any behaviors, thoughts, beliefs, skills, that you no longer need, that no longer serve you, with more powerful ones, according to who you want to be today

Every organization or business entity, consist of human systems. The wellbeing of each member, is essential to the wellbeing and sustainability of the total organization, as are healthy cells to a healthy body. Under a systemic approach, viewing oneself as a whole system, including the three essential elements, body-mind-soul, enables him to embrace and guide feelings, thoughts and actions in daily performance. Change is inevitable. Positive change is a choice.
One-self is a human system. Under the systemic approach, the human system, consists of organic parts (brain – mind – body), but also our emotional and spiritual world. In addition, it includes the inter-relations between these elements. How we function is a result of biological correlations, but also influenced by the way we think. Systemic thinking, values additionally to the organic level, the relationships we form with people around us, as well as with ourselves.
Negative emotions and thoughts, bad nutrition and lack of understanding of our real needs, can cause malfunctions, often expressed as a disease in the body.
To feel well, starts from inside.
Start feeling moments of happiness and gratitude and gradually fulfillment will be extended to all aspects of our lives.
Examining our daily habits with honesty will lead us on where and what to change. One small change will bring another and will gradually realize that a big shift has happened. As we become more and more healthy and happy, we contribute to the whole happiness and better health, eventually of the whole world.
How is the relationship with yourself?
How is your relationship with the significant others (parents, partner, children, friends, etc.)?
What kind of relationships you want to have with those around you?
How can you achieve the optimal balance between your personal life, work and good health?
My big personal WHY?
After years of studying and working in various professional areas of human development, I realized that my intention on everything I was doing, was to help people move forward, to achieve more in their lives. I was touched by every idea, story or action that has a positive impact on peoples’ well-being and on our environment. I was motivated by everything that makes our world a little better place.
I’ m being inspired by people who want to make a difference in their lives. Who touch and enhance others’ lives. I become «unstoppable» when I contribute to a child’s smile. When I inspire a happy face. When I offer joy and relief to those around me.
I ‘ve realized that freedom and independence are important values for me. Thus, the best way to enjoy my own freedom is by helping other people enjoying their own freedom. The freedom to make their dreams become true. To be free from any obstacles from the past, which prevent them to live the life they want. The freedom of choice. The freedom through conscious commitments that you choose for yourself.
