I help you practice science in a more healthy & happy way

πŸ‘‰ by improving stress-management skills

πŸ‘‰ by communicating more effectively

πŸ‘‰ by working SMARTER, not HARDER

πŸ‘‰ by being more compassionate (towards yourself)

πŸ‘‰ by getting the FUN back in doing science

πŸ‘‰ by prioritizing mental health

I know the academic world can be discouraging ‘cause once I was you.

I started my neuropsychology PhD with the greatest enthusiasm and ambition, but I soon came to the conclusion that the scientific world can be very harsh. I went through a burnout in my second year, and was completely overwhelmed by all that was coming at me as a first-generation academic. I felt lost and lonely, I didn’t think I would be up for it, and I thought about giving up.

But with lots of professional and personal support, learning about and experimenting with stress-management skills, and resetting my work-life balance, I finally managed to finish my PhD in time while being my most relaxed self. After finishing my PhD, I started teaching other researchers to navigate through the harsh academic environment. I’d love to show you how you can re-find your confidence, chill vibes, and fun science times!

“The course was very helpful, I wish I had found it behore starting my PhD πŸ™‚ (this is my perfectionist voice talking haha). I’m still not sure if I’m going to graduate as a PhD but I have chosen some goals (health and work related) to achieve during my last months. Watching your videos and guidance, gave me a lot of tools and confidence for making that possible.”
