Viktoria's Life Philosophy: Be mindfully aware and always within boundaries of safety, consent and comfort levels with respect, honour and trust with myself, first and foremost, and then reciprocally with others.

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’re 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.

I help you to reconnect to yourself with confidence, presence and passion, /and partner. To become an amazing partner. To be able to attract the right partner for you. To learn what works for you so you can love deeply, live fully and laugh often.

My passion to become a holistic intimacy coach led me to take a closer look at the word “Intimacy” through my lens. Firstly, it means “into-me-see” by embracing all aspects of yourself. Secondly, connecting with loved ones. And most important, it’s about awakening, healing and connecting with life, love and laughter.

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.

When you do the above, you can live your life in authentic technicolour and surround sound — with passion. purpose, meaning and magic. You get to create a life of vibrant intimacy, personally, partnered, and for life.

My 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?

I felt the need to breathe deeply, to feel safe, with a burning desire to live life fully and authentically. I decided to begin my empowering healing journey.

During my epic odyssey of personal healing, it hit me, like a brick to the head. I realized my body, heart and mind must heal as a holistic system. I learned how to feel connected and empowered with myself and my environment. I began to cultivate my authentic confidence. Bringing forward my passion, curiosity, creativity, love of life, joy of laughter 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.

I define “intimacy” as “into-me-see”. Intimacy [into-me-see]; Empowering self-awareness and confidence so you can authentically love deeply, live fully, laugh often, and get the embodied vibrant healthy intimacy you desire. Inviting curiosity to adventure into powerful possibilities of transformation so you can deeply connect.  -Viktoria
