Why Dopamine ?

As per science,  every time you choose to lead your life with Love and Passion,  your brain releases chemicals, of which is Dopamine, that help boost  your  overall well being, giving you a sensation of pleasure and motivation.  I will guide you on how to fall in love with life and secure a system full of Dopamine.

My Why


Few years back, i hit rock bottom. I couldn't find someone to provide genuine help. I decided to gather my broken pieces, glue them with selflove, sustain them with gratitude, and move on with mindfulness. It was the start of a calling to spread awareness of  the effect of mental health over your wellbeing.

the story



I tailored a solution that worked for so many people out there... My ideas started flowing from self help books i read since i was a teenager. This is how i started my journey of self motivation and the concept was born: an AUTARKEIA (self sufficiency) approach to life will allow anyone to live a happy life from within achieved by raising your Dopamine level intentionally.



Feelings of BROKENESS, ANXIETY and FEAR suffocate us. A breath of fresh air allows us to float and move forward... This is why i set the DOPAMINE Boost concept in place. Once you are at peace you can plan the long term solutions if needed (coaching).



BELIEVING BLINDLY will lead you towards your proper direction..

Exercising SELFLOVE, GRATITUDE and MINDFULNESS are the ingredients of a happy life from within.... I am blessed to have this man of faith in my life... Msgr. John was the spiritual leader of Mother Teresa.

the road to AUTARKEIA



Mentoring and Coaching people, online and in person, have been part of my daily pleasure. It is mainly guiding people around the world to see the gain in the pain... the convenient in the most inconvenient... The feedback has always been mind-blowing that i decided to take it to the next step.



During this session, we will discuss your story, your goal, the outcome you are seeking, your concerns and your reality... i will guide you to understand where you are and how to move forward in Life. Through this Dopamine boost session, you will see your internal conflicts  from a different perspective and experience how to live a happy life from within. Based on this session, We will discuss further steps towards a sustainable change. It is a MENTOR style session. Duration: 2 hours
