About

MY MISSION is to share with people an essential life skill – How to Build Healthy Relationships and Transform Challenging Ones.
 
MY APPROACH: Our success in life is based on the quality of our relationships with others and also with oneself. 
 
Relationships transcend all boundaries, backgrounds and cultures as they are a part of everyone’s life. They unite us all. They also have the greatest influence on our lives. Our well-being is largely based on the quality of our relationships with others and also with oneself. 
 
Despite the great impact they have on our lives, we still rely on the idea that building healthy relationships is something we are born with or just pick up as we go. Sure, we do get bits and pieces here and there, but they are not enough to give us the full skill set that we need. 
 
Relationship counselling offers us a chance to get these skills and to become relationship experts in our own right. 
 
To get you started, I created a free WAR to PEACE RELATIONSHIP GUIDE.
 
ABOUT VIKTORIA: I am a Therapist, Coach & Wisdom Seeker.
 
I came to be a therapist because I struggled myself. It was a challenge for me to understand my intense and unpleasant feelings that I experienced in my relationships.
 
In the pursuit of wanting to make sense of my anxiety and insecurities, I studied Neuroscience and, later, Counselling Psychology.
 
But it wasn’t the academic knowledge or painful personal experiences that offered the most insight. It was therapy sessions with my own therapist that brought on the most growth and self-awareness and gave me the tools to successfully navigate relationships in my life.
