Viktoria

Founder and CEO of Playful Loving Holistic Intimacy Coaching

I invite you to close your eyes and imagine what it’s like to be in a warm, playful loving, intimate relationship. Can you picture what it’s like to feel totally at ease with expressing your desires and needs. To feel supported and connected at the deepest levels?

Okay, now open your eyes. Is this your reality? If it is, I’m so happy for you. If it’s not, then I want you to know you are not alone.

So many people feel awkward and uncomfortable in their intimate relationships with themselves, loved ones and day to day life. They do not know how to ask for what they need and want without feeling a myriad of negative feelings like; fear, anger, sadness, guilt, unsafe, rejection, abandonement, and shame. They are left feeling lonely and disconnected, robbing themselves of their birthright to joyful intimacy and connection.

I help you to reconnect to yourself /and partner with presence and passion, and build your confidence. So you can connect deeply, live fully and laugh often. So you can become an amazing partner. So you can attract the right partner for you.

My passion to become a holistic intimacy coach led me to take a closer look at the word “Intimacy” through my lens. Intimacy: [Into-Me-See] Empowered self-awareness to confidently love S.L.O. (self, life, & others). And living the embodied vibrant and healthy intimacy you desire. Inviting curiosity, wonder, and adventure into powerful possibilties of transformation, so you can connect deeply. 

Its about practicing.
The 5 Pillars of Awesome Intimacy:

  1. Self-Awareness of your “now” with accountability, ownership and no judgement/critic.
  2. Authentically connect with curiosity to self, loved ones and life.
  3. Release past hurts, tendencies, conditioning and limiting beliefs.
  4. Curiously look at new possibilities of connection and growth.
  5. Mindfully engage with life’s experiences and be open to what is revealed to you.

Awareness Activates Connection in personally, partnered, and in life.

My personal journey has elements of ugly to awesome. Growing up in a strict Greek orthodox family I was disciplined in the art of heightened awareness and self-sacrificing service. I placed myself as an after thought.

As a result, I left myself on the back burner, putting others before me. I basically took on my mothers narrative of surviving in a loveless marriage. I was forced into an arranged marriage at the age of 18. I did not know who I was I just followed orders. This lead to a variety of physical abusive and emotional traumas at the hands of my care givers (who did not know any better), partner of that marriage and a variety of misguided people pleasing relationship to feel worthy and deserving. I felt incredibly alone and disconnected. No one understood me.

 

To survive, my coping mechanism led me to create a protective armour around my heart. Creating a sense of safety, my warrior side emerged and I became more masculine. I went through life feeling numb and disconnected. Unable to let my heart love myself and keeping people at a distance I became a prisoner of my own dark sadness and isolation.

Years passed, and I felt lost and tired of holding up my protective shield. My heart felt heavy and numb. My mind was angry and frustrated and struggling with unanswered questions: Why did this happen to me? What did I do wrong? Why do men inflict this kind of pain? Why are men abusive?

My heart fetl heavy and numb. Years passed with the realization that I felt lost and tired of holding up my protective shielding. I was feeling angry and frustrated. Struggling with various levels of sexual trauma, the same question kept coming up in my mind: Why did this happen to me?

My need to breathe deeply and burning desire to live life fully and authentically motivated me to begin my healing journey. During my odyssey of healilng, it hit me.  I came to understand that my body, heart and mind must heal together, holistically. This helped re-awaken and activate my joy, my confidence, my passion for life, my curiosity and creativity. Reclaiming my joy, feminine flow and playful loving intimacy.

You too can get the vibrant and healthy life, love and intimacy you desire. So you can bring back the balance of playfulness, curiosity, and fun!

Wondrous delights,
Viktoria,

When I am not coaching, I am probably in training learning new tools for my craft. Dancing the tango, transmuting energy through bellydancing, photography and crafting digital art. Enjoying the outdoors (especially the mediterranean sea), and going on new adventures that peek my interest.
