As a mission in life, I choose to help and inspire people like you, awakening the sparkles of wholeness in one's eyes, enlightening actions for one's desired results and better emotions!
I am passionate about people, their capabilities and potential; and for over 17 years I’ve been studying human behavior, social relationships and interactions between people and groups in different contexts and at different levels.
Born in Lisbon, Portugal more than 3 decades ago I moved to Alpiarça at an early age. Alpiarça is a village in the magnificent Ribatejana Plain, where I grew up and began my studies which then took me all over the world including Santarem, Coimbra, Oporto, Rome, Lisbon, Carvoeiro, Amsterdam and, most recently, San Diego.
For those who really want to know, I have a degree in Sociology by one of the most prestigious Portuguese universities and best sociology national schools (FEUC); with advanced professional training in Training Management for a renowned Portuguese multinational in the area of Innovation (SPI), an international certification in Coaching by one of the largest certifying entities in the world (ICC), and a Post-Graduation in Leadership Training and Team Development, pioneer in Portugal, at the best national school for psychology (ISPA). I am certified as a Practitioner and Master Practitioner in NLP (ITA); trained by John Grinder in New Code of NLP; certified as Generative Trance therapist with Stephen Gilligan.
Perhaps more meaningfully, I continue to learn about human behavior in areas such as creativity, Multiple Intelligences, Mindfulness, Neuroscience, Trance, NLP, Human Needs, Motivation, Peak Performance, Psy Cap, Leadership, Communication, Parenting, Emotional and Relational Management.
Besides surfing the web, discovering gadgets and trends, in my spare time I go for 8k walks or jogs, practice home workouts, meditation. I'm looking to practicing tai chi and yoga again; plus start aikido. I love read and travel!! (Oh yes! I do love to travel!!)
