I am here to share with you my best kept secrets. I have traveled the world and invested thousands of hours of training and exploring the subjects I love the most.
During my journey I have been fortunate enough to learn from the best in their fields of work.
My passion for massage, hypnosis and Neurolinguistic Programming are some of the goodies I love to share with you either in class or in private sessions.
My teaching method is a fun loving experience that unconsciously implants the knowledge into the everyday reality of training.
It is NOT a traditional teaching method as it installs similarly to a computer program a “software” into our subconscious minds, resulting in helping us achieve our goals fast. It allows us to be human i.e. to laugh and be skeptical at the same time and why not to even joke and learn from the whole process.! To put it simply it gives you the tools to become the best you can be by using your individuality.
“I give the classes I would choose to be given, and so do I for the rest of my services”
