Hi! My name is Valérie. I'm a nature-lover, backpacker, perpetual learner, happy Mom and wife to my 30-year partner Laszlo. I live my life full out and I love getting out of my comfort zone because this makes me feel alive, growing, and moving forward. I have a passion for sharing and caring. I love serving, bringing value, solving problems, meeting amazing people, and supporting others in their life journey.
I am also a transformational coach. I am the founder of Vision in Mind, the coaching company I have created to share the massive knowledge, understanding, tools, and wisdom I have gained over the past 25 years of sharing the life of indigenous communities while studying philosophy, positive psychology, nutrition, permaculture, epigenetics, spirituality, quantum physics, and neuroscience. Today I feel so grateful for the mentors and coaches who contributed to the person I have become.
The story of Vision in Mind began when I decided to leave the well-known path after College* and backpack through South America for a year. Living with the local populations of the Altiplano and the Amazonia opened my mind and soul and healed my heart in such a way that I have become a continuous traveler since, looking for authenticity and significance. I am convinced that my stays with spiritual communities like the Kogis in Columbia, the Maasai in Kenya, the Himbas in Namibia, the Lolos in Vietnam, the Yogis in India, the inhabitants of the longhouses in Borneo, the local families in Nepal and Laos, the nomads in Mauritania, the shamans in Mexico, the Aborigines in Northern Australia, have contributed to my growth and to becoming the best version of myself. The spiritual values of the local people, their connection to Mother Earth, and their strong sense of community feed and expand my life experience. Today I am deeply committed to supporting them the best way I can. They welcomed me at a time I needed them most in my personal journey. Now I feel this is the right time for me to give back to them.
In my early thirties, I discovered the work of brilliant writers, thinkers, leaders, and game-changers, and I became a sponge to their teaching and wisdom. After giving birth to three amazing kids, I decided to listen to my inner voice, go for my dreams, and live my true passions!
For more than 12 years, I enjoyed working as a coach in nutrition, healthy food, and permaculture. I met wonderful people and found the perfect balance between my professional and private life. I am the author of 5 successful books, and I was featured in different magazines, newspapers, radio, and TV programs. In 2017, I was awarded “Person of the year” by the “We’re Smart World” Association in recognition of my contribution to healthier food and more sustainable agriculture. After this awesome recognition, I felt the need to write another chapter in my life.
In 2018, I took a quantum leap, left the successful path I had built, learned hard, was guided by world-renowned mentors and master coaches, found out my new life purpose, and got certified as a Life Mastery Consultant**. I am convinced we are all here to grow, evolve, become, and co-elevate, which is why learning is part of my daily practice. In 2020, I became certified as a Knowledge Broker*** by Tony Robbins and Dean Graziosi.
Now I feel the time is right to inspire, empower, and share all the wisdom, inspirational insights, life-changing conversations, tools, and techniques I have collected and implemented in my journey so far.
I feel honored and humbled to have this opportunity to guide YOU on the way to your true potential and help transform your experience of life into something magical!
Thank you for joining me on this exciting journey. You are GREAT and you deserve a life that makes you vibrate! You can be AMAZING and give a new meaning to your life, and this all starts with digging deeper into yourself!
I can’t wait to share rich experiences and see how extraordinary you feel after connecting to your true Self, to Others, and Life!
With love and care! Valerie
