Hy, my name is Stephanie

Searching happiness

 

Since a teenager I have been curious about the secret of happiness.

 

For many years I was searching for answers: many years of traveling, meeting people, founding companies and family, seeing and experiencing happiness and joy, adversities and sorrow. Being still and meditate. I received some answers to my questions. But I still was not satisfied.

 

Until I discovered a science that researches happiness: The Positive Psychology. An academic discipline that asks questions like: what makes people happy, what lets people flourish, why are some happier than others, what lets us find joy and happiness despite challenges and sorrow... The science of happiness found many answers. Finally! Nowadays I work with great passion as a Coach, Trainer and Initator and am happy to pass on the findings of the science of happiness with my personal experience and with playful coaching and workshop methods to individuals and organizations.

 

I am a mother of 5 wonderful children, like nature, yoga, meditation and traveling and live with my family on a little island.
