THIS IS MY STORY

I graduated from KEDGE Business School/Grande Ecole in France with a Master in Management and started my career in London in Customer services for FMCG companies (Danone, Lactalis) and in Finance (UBS). I did spend the larger part of my career in the Media industry, successfully designing and implementing complex technical projects with huge marketing and commercial impacts - either in-house (Canal+) and eventually running my own Project Management Consultancy in Paris and in London.

I spent years juggling career and family life, with its ups and downs and most of the time to the detriment of my own wellbeing. Too much stress coupled with too little time and happiness always seemed to be ahead of me, something that I had to wait for ... next Easter's holiday in the sun, moving into our new house after months of renovation, the promotion I had been working really hard for ...  Something was missing, Happiness was missing because it somehow became a destination and I had forgotten to enjoy the ride!

Long story short, the rollercoaster of life took me on the 'Science of Happiness' race at UC Berkeley and the fun began! Within a few weeks of studying the neuroscience of happiness and applying the techniques I was learning, my entire life shifted. I got my modjo back ! I became increasingly resilient to stress, very optimistic and fiercely confident, I started taking risks, getting out of my comfort zone, thinking outside the box and most importantly I started to really enjoy life. This shift in my mindset also had an amazing ripple effect on the people around me and on my interactions with others.

This has been such a powerful experience for me that it became obvious that I had to make it my life mission, sharing these tools with people to help them deal with stress, build the mindset to become successful in every area of their life and most importantly to have fun along the way. I am truly passionate about everything and anything related to Happiness, so I still keep on studying and adding skills to my happiness toolbox.

I am an expert in the Science of Happiness at work & at play, and a certified Mindfulness, Heart Math & Positive Neuroplasticity Training (PNT) coach.

A UNIQUE APPROACH TO HAPPINESS

This is what makes me different

  • I have been to hell and back, have experienced all the tools first hand and am only sharing strategies, tools and techniques that work!
  • I have had a very versatile career from working in international corporations to running my own businesses. So, I do understand the challenges and pressures you might be facing at work.
  • I have a scientific and very pragmatic approach  - No Flower Power ! The techniques I am using/sharing are 100% science-based and can realistically be integrated in our busy lives
  • I truly engage people in taking care of their own wellbeing - even the most cynical ones ! 
  • I have been married, divorced and have 2 teenage kids and most importantly I have managed to keep my sanity through this rollercoaster :-)

I coach both private and corporate clients to help them navigate challenging & stressful situations and live happier and more more successful lives.

THIS IS MY REAL STORY - UNCENSORED

It was published a few years back by Happiful Magazine, click the logo to read more.

It took me a while to reveal my real story because of the stigma still attached with depression. I was ashamed to admit it to others.

Today, I can say that all these battles with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem where a true blessing in disguise.

Not only did I make it to the other side, but I now feel invincible because I know that regardless of what is happening in my life, Happiness is within me and I can connect with it anytime, anywhere thanks to all the practical tools and techniques I learnt.

The 5 secrets to a Happier life

Once you understand how your brain works, it's not complicated to start taming it to feel happier, calmer, more confident and to make the most of life

Frequently Asked Questions

To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment, and a resulting “compelling story”, that brought me to where I am today – teaching people like you on exactly what to do to become happier and more successful in every aspect of their life. That defining moment in my life happened in 2015.

 

Looking back, I would have described myself as a very fortunate woman living a priviledged life. I have had a very successful career (highly stressful but very rewarding financially) in media and owned my own consulting firm. I got married, had 2 beautiful children. And when work/life balance became too much of a challenge, I had the opportunity to become a full-time mum, supporting my daughters and my husband’s career. I basically had an amazing life and career trajectory from the moment I'd been adopted as a child. There was only happiness. 

 

Or so I had though, until one fateful Wednesday morning in June life threw an unexpected and hard curve ball at me. From that moment on, my life took a different spin, I broke down and found myself in full depression mode. The image of myself I had carefully crafted over the years, that warrior business girl, now full-time mother, confident and always smiling was gone! I was burnt-out by stress, petrified about the future and completely paralysed by fear, financial insecurities and the prospect of having to go back to work after a nine-year break.

 

I had the shoking realisation that I had never really been truly happy before, something was always missing. While a successful professional, my life was badly tinted by stress and anxiety. I was only just coping until the next holiday, like a hamster in a wheel, missing out on all the fun of the journey. While a full-time-mum, I had lost part of my identity, a sense of purpose, achievement and self-esteem.

 

All I kept saying to myself was: How will I manage to raise both my kids on my own? How will i get another job after being out of the workplace for 9 years? Will I ever be truly happy? Why are some people happy and others so unhappy - and how do I figure this out even though I'm so depressed right now and have no confidence at all?  

 

I made a decision right then and there that I was going to figure out this whole “Happiness thing”. At that very moment, I made a commitment to immerse myself in absolutely everything that had to do with Happiness. I got into the Science of Happiness and within weeks of applying the techniques I was learning, my mindset and entire take on life shifted. 

My capacity to identify and enjoy simple, beautiful things in life started growing a little bit more each day. I learnt to embrace my emotions rather than fight against them. I learnt to love myself again - and in process found out that I was someone very different from both the warrior business girl or the depressed wreck, I was someone else in the middle, kind, compassionate, full of hope, who deserved to create a happy life for herself. I managed to reconnect with a lost enthusiasm for life. Fear was soon replaced by hope and life became a vast field of possibilities. I found a new sense of peace, confidence and the clarity to become the dreamer of my dreams, the architect of my own life. I rewired my brain to be happy regardless of my circumstances and to have the confidence to take risks and create the fun life that I deserve.

 

This shift I experienced was so wonderful that I made the comitment to teach other people how to do the same. I kept on studying cutting-edge techniques with Mindfulness, Positive Neuroplasticity Training, Heart Mathto add more techniques and strategies to my toolbox and I quickly created my business, The Happiness Society.

 

Since then, I have spoken in front of countless groups and worked with hundreds of clients. I watched their mindsets shift, their inner strengths and confidence grow, their enthusiasm for life sky rocket! I watched them having fun while creating more happiness and success in all areas of their life. 

 

I have now created The Ultimate Happiness and Success Bootcamp : Unlock the power to create a stress-free, happy, successful life™, a series of 4 important inner and outer steps everyone needs to know to sky rocket their resilience, confidence, clarity and happiness.

I work with people just like you who are ambitious people, entrepreneurs, corporate warriors or full-time mum CEOs of their families who refuse to settle for average. They want to be happier, have more fun on the roller coaster of life and confidently create a meaningful and happy life for themselves and those around them.

People who

  • are willing to grow and change
  • want more out of their lives
  • feel stuck in the daily grind/ hamster wheel of life
  • are under a lot of stress, pressure, anxiety
  • going through difficulties at work, or at home
  • are often struggling with work/life balance
  • are over-giving, running on empty and rarely have any juice left 
  • feel that something is giving or something is missing
  • have lost their confidence or identity
  • want to change career or start a new business
  • need to re-invent themselves after an ordeal
  • want to get the clarity and confidence to move to the next phase of their life

Although we will occasionally touch upon values, goal setting and other “coach-y” things, you have me as a Happiness expert and consultant. I work on the inner and outer principals for Happiness and Success and look at your life from an organic and holistic perspective.  

My approach is at the intersection of science and spirituality. So whatever your personal beliefs are, wether you are a 100% rational or more open to spirituality, my tools and techniques will always resonate with you, you will understand all theirs principles and have the unshakable motivation to move forward with them.  

What that means to you is that you get a wise-sage-meets-kick-butt authentic Happiness coach. I’m direct but compassionate and you will always get a straight to the point quick and honest response from me. 

I’m concerned with how to get your Happiness and Success shoot up FAST. Sometimes, you may not like what I have to tell you – but you can be sure I will always tell you the truth. The truth about what’s standing in the way of your Happiness and how to get rid of it FAST.  I am a zero-BS sort of girl, I will go straight to the point to get you results in record time (and I throw in a healthy dose of humor and practical suggestions, which always helps!).

 

This program is not for people who want a quick fix. If there was a quick fix or a manual for a Happy life, I would give it to you. But there is none. 

This program is not for people who are not willing to get out of their comfort zone, put in some effort and create changeIt is not for people who are not willing to take serious and consistent action.

You might feel stuck right now and not sure how this is all going to work out but as long as you have the desire to learn and grow, we can work things out. Without this strong desire, we cannot get results.

So if you are go-getter and ready to take action, you are in!

The program begins with getting you in a place of calm where you reboot your nervous system. This allows you to move out of the Stress mode - Fight/Flight/Freeze zone -  and regain calm and clarity. Only then can we start working on healing, letting go, moving forward, rewiring your brain to get you making progress fast.

Here’s what the methodology entails:

  • PEACE : Stress and anxiety badly impair your physical and mental wellbeing as well as  your clarity, and ability to make decisions.

You will learn to manage stress and build resilience.

The purpose is to get you quickly in a position to design a plan of action to heal and design your new life.

 

  • HEALING : You will start to let go of everything that is holding you back (disappointments and limiting beliefs) and learn to forgive (others and yourself too). These are nothing but heavy bricks in your backpack, you will drop them one at a time and for good so that your journey becomes effortless. 

 

  • EMPOWERMENT : Through science-backed techniques, you will  beat the negativity bias of the brain, cultivate optimism and develop a strong focussed mindset that beats fear and sees the world as an exciting field of opportunities. You will manage the inner (and outer) critic like a pro, sky-rocket you confidence, feel strong, worthy and valued regardless of the current circumstances of your life.

You will discover your authentic self and strengths . You will learn to nurture and love yourself in a way that attracts and nurtures meaningful and loving relationships in your life.

We will create a daily routine that keeps you on track to creating the life that you want until it’s time to reap the rewards.

The results depend on how quickly you can make those inner shifts.

Some clients are ready to let go and move on, they sky rocket their Happiness and Success in a very short time frame, sometimes even a few weeks while others have a bit more work to do first. It very much all depends on your commitment to do the work but also on your starting point, your current situation.

Do all of your homework, be committed to your wellbeing.

Understand that this is a process, a proven one, that works if you take action and implement all of the steps.

All my clients who have diligently applied every step of the program see incredible changes, in much less time than they would have on their own.

Within the first month, they can see these amazing changes:
