Hi, I’m Ilse
Accredited life coach and happiness expert. I work with young professional women who feel sad, stressed and confused. With powerful positive psychology, spiritual and coaching techniques, I help you reduce stress, take the next step with confidence, and be happier than ever.
I spent most of my life doing what was expected of me and pretending that everything was ok. I was dragging myself to a job that I disliked, all the while suffering from impostor syndrome and subconsciously believing that life is supposed to suck. Eventually I turned to food to cope with all the negative feelings I felt. Deep down inside, I knew there had to be another way but I was confused and didn’t know where to go next.
One day I threw in the towel and decided to enlist some help – knowing that it went against the perfect facade I had built. I started working with a coach and re-discovered that while there is no magic pill, life is not supposed to suck. I found the right environment for my growth and achieved the directorship position I always wanted. I revered from a 10 year eating disorder and depression and I continue building a strong relationship with my husband.
These days I mostly leap out of bed (not before my first cup of coffee), I’m more self-aware and happier than ever, and when challenges or negative feelings come my way, I have an array of tools to copy with them – I have more good days than bad ones, I’m able to recover from disappointment a lot quicker and I keep growing and learning with confidence.
Everyone deserves to be happy. My mission is to make the world a kinder and more positive place, one person at a time. I created this place to help you get a little happier every day! I do this, by providing 1-on-1 life coaching, courses, and sharing tips, tricks and time proven techniques based on Positive Psychology – the science of happiness.
What I really do is help people achieve Optimal levels of happiness – in a nutshell – understanding what your negative emotions are telling you, addressing the root cause and getting back on the happy wagon.
I’ve been obsessed with the concept of happiness all my life. My favorite activity is going to a bookstore, Starbucks in hand, head to the self-help section and spend the afternoon lost in the new book smell and new ideas. My most shocking discovery is that happiness can be learned, even if you’ve been sad all of your life, and this is what I want to share with you.
