"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.'"
C.G. Jung

“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

- Understanding what's at the root of any experiences or pattern - creates space and freedom.

- More ease, capacity, and presence with stress and triggers.

- Greater capacity to create, manifest, and maintain what you desire. .

- Access to more truth and unexplored, new edges of human potential.

Methods & Trainings

Family & Systemic Constellations

Constellations is a method of healing inherited ancestral trauma that we carry.
We unconsciously repeat patterns and filter our reality through familial beliefs. It reveals the hidden dynamics and trauma that spans multiple generations.
It resolves limiting or harmful effects of the past. Profound and powerful shifts occur on the unconscious bonds between parent and child.

Development &

Development Diagnosis and Intervention by STAGES is a recent theory and assessment methodology for human consciousness development. It combines psychological stages of development with psychological shadow work and spiritual state.
We can pinpoint the stage of development which has shadow or blockages creating huge relief and expanded capacity.

Energetic &
somatic integration

All thoughts, emotions, and beliefs have an energy that are carried in the body. Aspects in survival or resistance can block energy flow.
By connecting to the body and energetic field we can release these blocks and beliefs causing an ease in the body.
This technique frees up the field, giving back vibrancy and aliveness, shifting what’s possible in our journey.
