Certified Life Coach & Wellbeing Expert
I'm Irena, an entrepreneur, proud mom, and ever evolving human.
I am a certified REBT (Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy) Practitioner, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Coach, Guided Meditation Teacher, and a well-being professional.
I was born in Serbia, lived in Chicago and New York, USA, and have been based in Brussels, Belgium since 2014.
My life journey, like everyone else's, has its highs and lows. Most of my accomplishments have been made in the midst of serious life challenges and seemed impossible at the time.
I hold a black belt 3rd degree in Shotokan karate. I have won multiple national championships and proudly represented my country as a member of the national team. I also faced war and poverty. I struggled with depression. I moved to another continent and felt absolutely lost. I achieved a Bachelor and a Master’s Degree in Kinesiology and accomplished 3 years of PhD research in Biomedical Sciences while dealing with the challenges of being a single mom in a foreign country. Just to name a few of the life challenges which made me who I am today.
Intuitively, I have always been a strong believer in human potential and resourcefulness. However, the scientific knowledge and spiritual insight I deliberately gained over the years gave me the tools to recognize self limiting beliefs as my own source of suffering and to strategically move towards a peaceful space of clarity and inner wisdom.
I find great satisfaction in helping others do the same. How can I help you?
