My mission is to empower every person to develop their own level of awareness and energy for sustaining a healthy work-life balance.

Welcome beautiful soul.

Born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal. Currently living in Ericeira, I am passionate about Nature, Surf and Life Coaching. Using Nature as Therapy in Life Coaching sessions, people feel more grounded and connected to the Earth, helping them see their difficulties in new ways. It can be most beneficial in coping with stress, anxiety, and individual or workplace relationship challenges. 

I am a certified trainer and coach in the areas of Leadership, Emotional Intelligence and Effective Communications and Human Relations by the World Coaching Organization, Franklin Covey, Ken Blanchard Companies, and Dale Carnegie. And a Certified Behavioral Consultant in DISC Profile (Personality Profile). My work is complemented with Energy Healing has a certified practitioner in Craniosacral and Myofascial Release Therapies, by Upledger Institute and Instituto Técnicas de Saúde.



At this time, the world is changing. We live a time of awakening and eager to change. We’re becoming more aware of our own challenges and routines that we need to change.

You may feel that something is different inside you. You have dropped your barriers and you see everything much clearer. You realize all the old habits you don’t wish to keep and you’re ready to live your own truth. You feel the need to be alone or with new people around you more aligned with who you have become. You have a deep calling for meaning in your life. A willingness to reconnect with yourself while you feel the presence of “coincidences” and “synchronicities” in your life. Insights are coming more often, and your intuition is increasing. You are focusing your energy on love and gratitude and losing interest in any type of judgment towards others or yourself.

You are drawn to be more into nature.



Step into a refreshing way of quiet your minD and nurture your soul.

You will:

Clear the path for what you truly want

Align your intentions and actions with your purpose

Be able to express yourself to others from the heart

Be aware of negative habitual patterns of thinking

Discover tools for living a meaningful live with joy, love and connection

nature-connected coaching

Nature-Connected coaching is coaching from the inside. It focuses on moving out of your own mind internal dialogue and listen what your heart and soul are whispering to you. It empowers you to shift the old paradigms which no longer serve you and set foot on new tracks of life aligned with your passion and your highest potential.

How it works? First you book a FREE 30-minute session, via Phone or Skype, with me. I will send you a questionnaire, to guide you on what you are looking for and to help me to get to know you. It is important to find a coach that you can really partner and trust. If you feel we are a good fit, we set up your first awakening coaching session. Sessions are 90 minutes and can take place in Terra Lodge Nature House (click here for more info ) or in one of the amazing Ericeira Walking Routes.

Personality profile assessment with DISC

We all have people who we find hard to communicate with or work alongside. And we need to make these relationships work. A good starting point is to understand more about your own personality. DISC is a behavior assessment tool based on the theory of psychologist William Marston, which centers on four different personality traits which are currently Dominance (D), Influence (I), Steadiness (S), and Conscientiousness (C). 

How it works? First you book your assessment with me. You will receive an access code for an online assessment, and you answer a simple questionnaire about your own behavior. After completion, you will get your DISC profile report on your e-mail address. For the next step, I will contact you to book a 90 min. debrief session (face to face or via phone/skype) where we can dive into your profile, how you can improve your communication with others, and finally, setting up an action plan to address your areas of improvement.


Intuition building is a tool to access your subconscious mind and receive guidance into where are you now and what you need to be aware. I work with several coaching cards game where you can find inspirational and affirmational images. During the session, you just need to set your intention, ask a question and I guide you through the reflection process.

It’s about grounding yourself in the present moment and a guide to generating insights through your awakening experience and self-development. Sessions are 90 minutes and can take place in Terra Lodge Nature House (click here for more info ) or via Skype or Phone.

Craniosacral therapy

Cranial sacral therapy (CST) is a type of noninvasive bodywork therapy that relieves compression in the bones of the head, sacrum (a triangular bone in the lower back), and spinal column. It uses gentle pressure on the head, neck, and back to relieve the stress and pain caused by compression. It is used as a health measure for several situations, such as: migraine headaches, chronic fatigue, emotional difficulties, stress and anxiety.

When you arrive for your session, I will ask you about your symptoms and any preexisting conditions that you have. You’ll remain fully clothed during the session, so wear comfortable clothing. It’s all about deep relaxation.

design your own experience

Do you have a specific need that needs to be address with a custom workshop, training program or a retreat? Drop me an e-mail with your personal intentions so that I can design and co-create with you the appropriate program to what you are wishing to experience.

Men holding space for Men is a new tribe that envisions co-creating a future they love for the following generations. It’s all about reconnecting with ourselves and remember our unique expression of being a man.

Why Men?

Men need the support of other Men to step up in their lives. We are leaving behind the old paradigm, where men believed that they should be flawless, never seek for each other support, and figure everything out by themselves.

We need to hold space for each other so we can grow and co-create a new meaningful life for us and our loved ones.
