So glad to see you here!

Grab a cup of tea and let’s get to know each other…

Hi! I am Vivi, a Holistic Health Coach in training and a Hungarian wellness junkie living in Copenhagen. I believe in the power of self-love & the conscious pursuit of self-development in order to become truly happy.

My mission is to empower and inspire women to take control of their health and happiness through daily practices that support overall well-being.

My wellness-journey started in 2013 when I took a huge step outside of my comfort zone and moved from Budapest to Copenhagen. I easily found the Scandinavian lifestyle attractive, as I realized Danes try to maintain a healthy work-life balance and prioritize family time. This was all very new to me.

I was inspired by their mindset – and at the same time, determined to fit in. I purchased a bike and added other types of physical activities to my life. Regular exercise had a tremendous impact on my wellbeing.

In 2014, I became part of a spiritual community where I got acquainted with meditation and more natural ways of living.

At the time, I came across an article about a natural fertility awareness method. It made me feel motivated to take my health a step further. Therefore, I gave up birth control pills and I learnt to chart my menstrual cycles. However, at the end of 2015 I felt that something wasn’t quite alright regarding my reproductive health, as I had 40-50 day long cycles. I visited several doctors about this issue. None of them seemed to be able to figure out what it was, up until September 2016 when one doctor diagnosed me with PCOS. It felt like a punch in my stomach.

After weeks of feeling frustrated and devastated, I decided to take the diagnosis as a wake-up call. A new beginning and an opportunity to take better care of myself.

I started to research natural solutions as alternative to synthetic hormones. Fortunately, I stumbled upon the wonderful idea of Cycle Synching developed by Alisa Vitti, and began to eat and exercise according to the 4 phases of my menstrual cycle. I even quit dairy, gluten, sugar, caffeine and alcohol.

My efforts started paying off and I began to see amazing results: my skin cleared up, I finally had 30-day cycles and I felt more energized. A follow-up ultrasound also confirmed that one of my ovaries was completely clear of cysts. YES! I truly felt that I was on the right path to a healthier and happier life.

But… not so fast! In 2018, I started struggling with keeping my symptoms at bay, when my fiancé and I had just launched our own business. Shortly after, we were both working 7 days a week. Weeks soon turned into months. My life became meaningless, I felt lost, lonely and could not recognize myself anymore. I was downward spiralling into depression…

My better half and I had countless talks, which made me realize that there was only one thing to do: changing my mindset about how I viewed the situation and my life. I was desperate not to feel miserable anymore and I needed guidance.

I reached out to self-help books, which generally pointed toward the importance of self-love and personal development. Slowly changing the way I was thinking, made me feel significantly better.

This progress also revealed my true passion! Since childhood, I have always known that I wanted to have a profession that allowed me to help people. My ‘how’ had been changing throughout the years, but this experience made it crystal clear for me: I wanted to empower women to find balance and create happier lives.

In start of 2019, we agreed on closing down our business. Right after, I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, to become a Holistic Health Coach and be able to help women the best way possible.

Despite all the hardship in the past 2 years, I am extremely grateful for the valuable life lessons it taught me. The combination of my past experiences and my current study programme allowed me to create the Happiness Assessment.

In order to find balance in the 12 areas of your life, I believe it is essential to get to know yourself, accept and love who you really are. All the answers are already within you, and I am excited to help you to bring them to the surface.

XO Vivi
