My very first coaching session with Alja was a transformative experience that impacted me on every level. It was both mind-blowing and healing. That day, I made the courageous decision to quit the job that had been causing me immense unhappiness. From there, Alja guided me on a journey towards discovering my purpose and pursuing my true goals. As a result, I secured a higher-paying job in a more pleasant environment, where I received increased respect and autonomy as a leader. Additionally, I took action on my passion for songwriting, incorporating it into my life as a fulfilling hobby.Susan Jones, Head NurseAuckland, New Zealand

What stood out to me about my sessions with Alja was the perfect blend of practical knowledge, heartfelt insights, and soulful guidance. Our conversations resonated with me in a profound and meaningful way. Alja's warm and welcoming nature created a safe space for me to navigate the challenges and demands of my busy business and life.

Alja's coaching has been instrumental in my journey to reconnect with my true passions and values. After years of feeling unsatisfied in a corporate job, I reached a point where I questioned my beliefs about hard work and job satisfaction. Through Alja's support, I gained a deeper understanding of my values and envisioned the life and career I truly desired. She helped me develop trust in myself, explore new career options, and stand up for what I believe in. As a result, I made the decision to take a sabbatical and pursue systemic coaching and yoga teacher training. During this time, Alja assisted me in finding a new job that aligns better with my personality and beliefs. Now, I'm on the verge of starting a job in the 'people up-skilling' industry while teaching yoga on the side. This entire process has been incredibly rewarding. I have grown in self-awareness and self-worth in ways I never thought possible.Heike Bitterle, Customer Success Manager & Yoga TeacherMunich, Germany
As a photographer, I struggled for years to effectively segment my clients and package my offers in a way that truly reflected the conscious experience I provide. However, after receiving business coaching from Alja, I finally feel like I'm authentically expressing the resonance of my work. I'm amazed by the holistic offers that Alja and I designed together. Not only am I satisfied with my pricing and website, but I'm also excited to implement my social media marketing strategy. Alja helped me understand the importance of clearly defining my offerings as a conscious creator. This process has made me feel valued and seen.

Alja has had a big influence in all aspects of my life. Most noticeably, she has helped me to gain better perspective on what is important to me both on a career and personal level. Following on from this, Alja and I have worked together to re-evaluate how I define success and I am no longer bench-marking myself against others but instead setting goals based on the values that are important to me. This, in turn, has led me to re-evaluate how I currently spend my time/energy and the end result is I now in a happier place both on a work and personal basis. Alja has also helped me improve my self-awareness, which has helped me to become more impactful on both a professional and personal level. And following on from this, Alja has been a fantastic mentor on a relationship front. In conclusion, she has guided me through a number of tricky situations and given me some fantastic tools to better handle certain/people situations in the future.Josh Taylor, TraderAmsterdam, The Netherlands
Coaching with Alja has been a trustful, fun, exciting, and, I must say, challenging experience. She has a unique ability to delve into the 'why' behind my life choices, encouraging deep reflection and honest self-assessment. Although at times it was difficult, this process of truthful reflection has been truly transformative, as I believe that genuine growth occurs when we are honest with ourselves. Alja's thorough methods have been invaluable in uncovering areas of potential growth, allowing me to become a more fully realized version of myself. Throughout our sessions, Alja skillfully helped me uncover many unconscious thought processes and beliefs that were driving my actions. By challenging these patterns, she guided me to see them from different perspectives and break free from negative thought patterns that were impacting my self-worth. Her reflective nature, attentive listening, and thought-provoking questions have truly contributed to helping me live my fullest life. I am grateful to Alja for her unwavering support and her ability to challenge and guide me towards personal growth and self-discovery. Working with her has been an empowering journey, and I highly recommend her as a coach to anyone seeking to unlock their full potential.Jesse Lisser, Software developerRotterdam, The Netherlands
Alja is not only a beautiful soul but also a remarkable coach. Her personal journey of growth and development is truly inspiring, and I have no doubt that she can guide others on a similar path. In just two coaching sessions with her, I discovered my true purpose - helping people incorporate more plant-based meals in their diet to support their health and show compassion towards animals. Additionally, Alja has empowered me to run women's circles, fostering connection and empowerment among women. I will forever be grateful to you, my friend, for the transformative impact you've had on my life. Thank you!Evita Puzin, Real estate agent & Coaching Business OwnerLjubljana, Slovenia
I feel very grateful to have Alja as a coach– she is friendly, approachable, non-judgemental and a great listener. I thoroughly look forward to my sessions with Alja – she has a great energy and calmness that always leaves me feeling more prepared to take on whatever challenge I am facing. Although we only commit to one and a half hour sessions every few weeks, she always goes above and beyond that. She checks in on me regularly, and I feel I can message her outside of our scheduled hours. She gives proactive solutions through guidance, meditations or exercises that are suitable to my current situation. With Alja, you feel you have gained a friend as well as a coachClaudia Cairns, Sales Coordinator at Green GorillaAuckland, New Zealand
Alja’s coaching has supported my blockages around promoting my own services. It was enormously healing, and a catalyst to changing beliefs and behaviors that weren’t serving me. Her efforts resulted in inner peace, and trusting the process of what is happening in my life. Her thought leadership associated with ‘self-worth’ and inner confidence has propelled me forward in personal and professional life. I greatly look forward to going to her full self-worth workshop and to having further sessions. I am so pleased to have met her, and I’m so excited for all that she will be able to create in this world. I highly recommend her and for you to share her services with whomever you meet that may require support.”Misty Maree Goodmare, Real-Estate Business OwnerAuckland, New Zealand
Alja is an incredible coach that has helped me change my entire outlook on life. After years of battling depression and going through several psychologists, counselors, psychiatrists, and life coaches, Alja is the only person who has helped to arrive to a place where I truly love and accept myself. She has a unique ability to quickly form a deep connection with you, then use the connection to challenge your existing mindset and habits. Instead of giving you “tools” to use, she guides you to come to an understanding of your own problems and why they exist. it is with this powerful knowledge that Alja gives you the foundation to build yourself from. She then assists you in creating actions and habits to achieve what you want to achieve. Alja is by your side throughout the journey, showing you where you are now, where you want to be, and providing you with coaching and guidance that will make it happen. I now live for every day since my first session with Alja.Elijah PurnellAuckland, New Zealand
