I help people learn to navigate through real life. Messy relationships, sucky jobs, heartbreak, trauma, and dreams you’ve forgotten.

I believe in happiness.  I don’t believe in its relentless pursuit. Long term happiness, to me, actually looks more like contentment.  

That's why mindfulness is at the core of what I teach. When you learn to observe ALL your thoughts and emotions, to be curious about them, and to see what they have to teach you, that's when you can start to walk through life differently. 

That's when you can stop focusing on what you think is wrong with you and focus on what is right with you instead.

I'd always assumed there was something wrong with me - so my own journey entailed trying to endlessly prove myself (perfectionism), trying to please everyone around me and moulding myself into a definition of success that didn't fit. 

This did not work out well. In my 20’s, it manifested in an eating disorder – and later a diagnosis of chronic anxiety and depression.  

What I learned (through coaching) was that those dark times were a catalyst.  An invitation to step further into myself.  Along with my yoga and meditation practice (which fit perfectly with what I learned in coaching) my life turned around.  

I'd love to help you with that.  

I know you CAN change your life.

Through the way you manage and regulate emotion, through changing the thoughts and beliefs you hold about yourself and the world.  You can learn to show up differently - whether it's in your personal life, as a business leader, or whatever role you happen to be playing.

It's not the easiest thing. It's the hardest thing. But the long term changes for your life are so well worth it, you won't regret for a second that you got started.

 Join Me. 

My name is Sonia Voldseth.
