Learn to use your most amazing superpower to shape a meaningful and conscious life by watching my free Awareness 101 Video Series.
Hey there, I'm Valentina!
I help quirky human beings embrace a never-ending journey of expansion and growth so that they can shape an extraordinary life rooted in connection, fuelled by purpose, and ignited by love.
If I can, You can.
Are you tired of a life that tastes like 200 years old pudding?
Then you are in the right place!
Hi, I'm Valentina: a former Corporate manager in a Fortune500 company who went from crippling anxiety to being an awareness-junkie, consciousness explorer and life-obsessed quirky human being.
My superpower is to understand how people tick. I am hooked on living my best possible life. A life of expansion and growth. Of exploration and understanding. Of knowledge hoarding and research.
My purpose in life has become to teach the simple evidence-based tools, frameworks and hacks that transformed the life of thousands of people worldwide to as many people as I can.
I love teaching to all those people who cannot settle for LESS. To all those people who want MORE, even though they have been taught how to be LESS. To all those people who question and wonder and get lost in their never ending over-thinking. To all those people who are stuck because their dreams are too scary/impractical/unrealistic. To all those people who are hostage of their mind, life, or relationships.
To all those people who KNOW, even if in punctual micro-fraction of a second, that they ARE wired for WOW.
If this is you, I'd love to help you find that WOW.
In the form of your most unique essence: your true self.
In the form of your most incredible superpower: your ever-expanding awareness.
In the form of your most learnable skill: being in charge of your mind.
So that you can be in control of your choices and your whole life.
Join the geekiest and nerdiest (is this a word?) adventure of all.
Into your subconscious, digging for gold...ehhh... for truth. Ok, Gold AND Truth.
Into the higher awareness of who you are, and are not.
Rooted in connection and love - because like matching accessories, you cannot have one without the other.
Fuelled by purpose, because in connection and awareness your true purpose will shine throughout your heart.
I promise you this is going to be the most exhilarating and empowering experience of your life.
The only question you need to ask yourself s: if not NOW, then WHEN?
I know you can feel it in your bones... and even more in your strong beating heart.
This is the time.

I still can't believe how quickly it happened
I have been to quite a few counsellors and coaches in the past few years but none of them have made the difference for me that Valentina has - I still can't believe how much of a difference it has made and how quickly it happened. When she says there can be a big change in only a few sessions - keep an open mind and believe her, because it's certainly what happened for me!
Valentina is incredibly authentic, effective and gifted.
This work is a gift, it is a huge gift. Valentina has that rare combination of an incredibly alive mind and an open heart. She speaks to both the head and the heart. All of us get stuck and that's ok, but when you find someone who can guide you to freedom you really want to tell your friends about it! If you are one of those people who feels a bit numb and distanced from both themselves and the world then consider what it would mean for you if you could genuinely reconnect with yourself and those around you. That's what's happening for me and I don't think I could have done it without a gifted guide. Valentina is one seriously gifted guide!
I am not stuck anymore!
Thank you again so much for the work you did with me. My internal life is so much richer and I am not stuck anymore!
Feeling relieved and much more aware
Huge shout-out and THANK YOU to Valentina for the session with me today (coming with lots of love and relief from my inner child, too! )
Me before the session: frustrated with emotions and stuff I had no idea how to handle, feeling tossed and turned around and going through the notions.
Me after the session: feeling relieved and much more aware of what's actually going on with me, plus having tools that now I can use when I get triggered to handle the situation positively.
I so appreciate your help!
