For years, I lived ruled by my head and by patterns of people pleasing and work addiction. I was seeking external approval over internal satisfaction. I was completely disconnected from my heart, my intuition, and my body’s wisdom. I found it hard to sit still, to be alone, and just be with myself.
And so I was continuously setting goals, creating external change, and rushing through life, trying to find a solution to my constant dissatisfaction – without lasting results.
After years of self-harming behaviour, my body was shutting down and my soul was screaming: “ENOUGH is ENOUGH!” So I started my healing revolution – on my own. I studied Psychology (for over 6 years), became a yoga teacher, and nutritionist, read all the self-help books, attended every online event I stumbled across – and was still struggling.
The truth that I was afraid to admit is this:
We don’t heal in a vacuum.
We don’t heal in isolation.
We cannot “do it all alone”.
We were never meant to.
The truth is, you DON’T need a saviour coming to rescue you, but you DO need someone to support you.
You need someone who shows you how you can harness that inner wisdom that is unique to you.
Speaking from my own experience, I know that often times, when we decide to change something in our lives, we want to experience immediate results. The sooner the better!
But, when it comes to unhealthy beliefs and behavioural patterns that you developed over a long period of time – sometimes your whole life – you might find yourself lost and don’t know where to start. If you do get inspired to start something new and are motivated to change, the initial motivation does not last very long and after a couple of weeks you find yourself in the same situation where you started off – or worse as you couldn’t succeed.
If you find yourself in the description above, you are no different than the majority of us. The problem is this: when you know that something is wrong and you want to change it, you start by looking on the internet for help. Depending on your problem, you search for a therapist, (life) coach, dietitian, spiritual guru, yoga teacher, somatic practitioner, you name it. But often times these specialists focus only on one aspect of your life that needs change or help when often times the root of the problem is best approached with a combination of different disciplines and tools – holistically.
The thing is: it’s not all ‘in your head’. Your past is manifested in your whole being – body, mind, soul.
After ten years of trying out different therapies, coaching methods and (online) programs, I can say that a combination of all of them helped me to escape my vicious circle and finally change my entire life – not just one area as I previously thought.
I wish there would have been someone – a trustworthy person – that I could have received this knowledge from in one achievable package. But there wasn’t.
This is why I dedicated my time to become an expert myself. First, for myself and my own recovery and later to serve others who are looking for a more holistic – whole person approach and a nourishing container of like-minded souls to challenge and support one another. I became the one I desperately needed to have beside me many years ago, so I know how you feel.
I’ve deconstructed my journey so you don’t have to spend years searching for the answers.
For me, it wasn’t easy to accept help in the past. I wanted to prove to myself and others that I can ‘do it alone’. Now I know that it’s so much smarter to be accompanied on the way. You gain clarity much faster, get motivated when times get tough, feel supported and realise what you truly want to achieve – without the external noise. What I now know is this: A life of purpose and fulfilment starts from first and foremost, taking care of ourselves.
