"My life is my message."
I was born in Geneva, Switzerland. Throughout my childhood, and now as an adult, I have lived in, and travelled to, many different countries and as a consequence I am fluent in German, French and English, as well as being conversant in Spanish.
My love of experiencing different places and cultures revealed to me just how curious and fascinated I am by people and personalities. It was this that led to my studies in psychology and hypnotherapy at the Regent's College in London.
My professional career started with multinational companies in fields such as marketing, sales and customer relations. It soon became clear that my strength was to help people in need because I spent my time helping colleagues who regularly asked for my personal advice and assistance for their financial, professional, personal problems.
I completed training in personal and professional coaching at the IDC (Institut de Coaching) in Geneva. Recognising my ever-growing passion in helping others, as well as acknowledging the positive impact I could create in people's lives, it was a logical step to launch my own coaching and personal development company. I find it deeply rewarding to individually and personally guide men and women towards more positive thinking and to help them to see rewarding solutions and goals.
My personal experience has given me an in-depth understanding of people's frustrations at work and problems at home, and thanks to my therapeutic background I have also found the right ways to achieve a happy and fulfilling life. All this has taken me towards the milestone of becoming a personal coach and creating be&become.
I welcome people from all nationalities and cultures to contact me. My aim is for be&become to create a space of personal freedom for people, by connecting their inner strengths and by helping them to accept who they really are.
I look forward to welcoming you at be&become as your personal coach and confidant.

" I have truly been blessed to work with Valeska as my life coach over the last two months.She has a light,gentle, caring approach and I have found her 100% professional and highly efficient. She has really challenged me and allowed me to take a good look at what I want and how I can achieve it. It really helped me to be supported and encouraged through her highly accurate listening and feedback skills. I highly recommend Coaching with Valeska. "
" I'm having more fun than I can ever remember having.I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be where I am today if it hadn't been for my sessions with Valeska, as she really got me primed for moving and taking a risk!Thank you so much for helping me get my life back!!! "
" There's something very special about the coachings and interactions with Valeska. It struck me to see how deeply involved she was in helping me reach my goals. It all seemed so far away, so impossible to attain and yet she made it possible for me. I have full confidence in myself and feel good about my every day decisions even if they aren't always easy to take. I thank you Valeska for your huge support! "
" When I left your practice I felt overjoyed and optimisic. In only two hypnosis sessions you have removed my hopelessness and given me hope about my weight loss. I have lost 12 pounds in 3 weeks!My desire for junk food and sweets is almost gone,I am satisfied with having less to eat and I'm inducing more pleasure!Thank you. "
" I've made some pretty big changes!I'm now following a different, more corresponding career path, and I have finally started to do what I really want in life. The clarity gained from our sessions helped me to see clear again, and things have become easier for me as I do things in function of me and my needs.I'm feeling much more confident and centered.Having someone as wise as Valeska assist me with practical strategies, insight, patience and enthusiasm was for me the ideal combination of making these differences in my life. I highly recommend Valeska to anyone ready to make some big changes. "
" I have been using hypnosis in my ongoing battle with alcohol.It's a very difficult process for which I have tried various tools. At present I am 23 days sober..I enjoy it and feel it is useful, I'm hopeful and optimistic. "
" I was looking for a job. After almost a year of being unemployed and seriously unmotivated, I hired Valeska as my coach. Our professional relationship allowed me to open up about issues which I never even thought were important and it moved me to be honest to myself, finally. It was a very liberating experience to understand myself better and the barriers I had put ahead of me so far..I now not only have a full time job which I really enjoy, I also met the love of my life! I thank Valeska for believing in me and for having guided me through the process in ever way. "
" Hypnosis for me turned out to be very effective. I have completely quit smoking and I don't feel the urge to smoke either.Even thinking about it; the smell, the look, everything seems foreign to me now.I thought it would be impossible for me to be around smokers but it's all in the head. I haven't had a cig in 7 months now, I'm very happy and extremely impressed! "
" No matter my mood, by the end of the phone session with Valeska I've felt validated and heard because one of the many things she does is listen. A good listener is rare, Valeska listens with compassion and with care. She also has the ability to make you feel hopeful no matter what the problem is. In my case it was dealing with my daughter's death. I'm not sure how I could have coped without her help and strength and I truly thank her for bringing me my life back. "
" Being a schoolteacher I was ready to give up my career because of this horrendous class I was teaching.It was putting me down and began to affect me in ways I couldn't understand. Eventually you get sucked up in a vicious circle in which you think you'd be better off without the job.Problem was, I love what I do and knew in my heart it was my passion.I decided to hire Valeska with whom I did coachings and hypnosis.The impact was huge.I realized to what extend I wanted to teach and that having to deal with this challenging situation really was an opportunity for me to confront my fears and insecurities, many of them linked to my past.I finally said goodbye to my inner ghost and found new ways in strengthening myself when things get difficult.Thank you!!! "
" Prior to my session I was a compulsive gambler.I'd go to the casino's 3-4 times a week. After just one hypnosis session the urge was gone. One month later after the 3rd session I am proud to say that I have not been back!Not only have I stopped gambling, I have also started to live a much happier lifestyle!This experience changed my life!Thank you from the button of my heart for helping me through this struggle. "
" We had been trying to have a baby for 8 years and after a failed IVF cycle and one miscarriage, I was diagnosed with unexplained fertility. We basically became hopeless. It seemed to be an endless vicious circle filled with disappointments and sadness, which lead me and my husband to be very demotivated to carry on in trying. Eventhough I promised myself not to become too involved with the process and let things happen, I became totally obsessed and stopped living my life. My relationship also suffered a great deal. I had heard about the effects of hypnosis and decided to give it a try. I immediately bonded with Valeska during our first coaching session and I felt like I was in very good hands. She struck me with her optimism, her kindness and most importantly:she had hope for me. She was always very open to my feelings, taking each thought seriously and helping me to get back on track. Each session gave me strength and energy and I began to live again. I then understood that my childhood trauma was blocking me to conceive and it wasn't until I accepted, embraced and let go, though the hypnosis and coaching, these past events of mine. I'm now happy the happiest woman on earth because I am 3 months pregnant!!I am so grateful in so many ways and would like to thank Valeska for the gift she has given me. The sessions didn't just bring me pregnancy, it brought me to understand myself and my body better, to go after my intuition and to believe in myself, which in return will be a huge advantage to my child. Each session was truly memorable and I will continue with hypnosis and coaching sessions for me and my baby as well as for birth preparation. "

"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever"
We all carry the key to our personal dreams, goals and desires deep inside ourselves. We also carry the answers to our questions in life inside of us. But it is unlocking these positive feelings and talents and revealing and accepting the answers within us that so many people find difficult. Sometimes we feel lost or find ourselves at the outer edge of our lives and relationships, struggling to reconnect with personal strengths and self-confidence, and without the courage to make changes.
At be&become I believe the way to personal fulfilment and a joyful life is to find the balance between all the different and important areas in your life. Through my own deep and personal understanding of life's struggles, anxieties and concerns, I feel your pain. I know how friends, families, relationships, work and private lives can present frustrations and challenges that seem to tear you apart at your very heart.
My vision is to become your guide, supporter and confidant. Understanding what moves you and knowing your deepest emotions will be my rewards, as well as the key to guiding you to finding the path to become the person you have always dreamed you could be.
Together we will work out the day-to-day steps to create your individual route for your personal goals. To begin this journey to a happier and more satisfying life you will learn to love and appreciate yourself, and realise your real desires and aims for the future.
With the assistance of carefully chosen therapeutic practices, such as coaching, hypnosis and mediation, I will help you to unblock negatives and to reconnect to your own strengths. I will take the time to explore all the important areas of your life, whether it is enhancing your self-esteem, learning how to say no, discovering ways to deal with stress and challenges or ensuring that the choices that you make are the right ones for you. You will see, in time, that coming to be&become is about partnership and discovering your personal dreams.
"There is no such thing as a failure. There are only results."
We all dream of a happy and satisfying job, and desire greater rewards financially and personally. But so often long working hours, stress and tiredness block our positive feelings so that we cannot realise our talents. In many cases, frustrations at work and difficult workplace environments can lead to economic struggles. Maybe you feel you have started the wrong career in your professional life, or you have the wrong job but cannot find the way to change the position in which you currently find yourself.
I have experienced many of these difficulties in my own career and I am very aware of anxieties and problems at work. I have faced the same barriers to progression and know the pain of being rejected or facing closed doors. That is why be&become can help you effectively as no problem remains misunderstood.
I will help you to discover a more satisfying professional life because I understand how much more rewarding life can be when there is satisfaction at work. The focused and rewarding coaching sessions will reveal how you can find the way to new opportunities with fresh energy and optimism. As a professional coach I work with clients in such way that they discover their inner potential and true talents. I will expertly guide you to a career of your dreams, and a much desired work-life balance.
What makes be&become different is that I believe that behind every professional crisis there are new and exciting opportunities, even after having experienced redundancy, job loss or a burn-out. It is only by going through and accepting these difficulties that you will learn to understand your true inner strengths, forces and needs, and learn how to reconnect with yourself. Throughout the process I will be at your side, helping you to find new energies that can change your life and lead you to a happier and more satisfying professional career.
"Love isn't finding a perfect person. It's seeing an imperfect person perfectly"
It can sometimes seem as though a happy and long-lasting relationship is hard to achieve, but within us all is the potential to discover the route to amazing and fulfilling relationships. So often the balance of a relationship depends on personal or job satisfaction but is also vulnerable to your partner's emotions and sensibilities. In fact it is a highly complex subject that requires careful exploration and guidance.
When you start your journey with be&become you will be shown how to take a closer look inside yourself. After all, how will it be possible to achieve harmony in a relationship if both, or one of the partners, is unhappy in the relationship? Let me be your guide as I expertly lead you to happiness in your relationship and private life.
Each relationship has its own inner struggles. Some people may feel their relationship is too boring, too quiet, too noisy, or just uncomfortable. Perhaps a relationship began happily but over time has been reduced to a loveless partnership, or only friendship. Some partners come to be&become because they can't decide whether to stay or flee their marriage while others are still despairing if ever finding the "true love".
I have deep understanding of the complexities of all relationships. My caring and personalised approach to coaching allows the individual to explore his or her own needs and emotions. You will be shown how to analyse your feelings and together we look at what moved you in your past relationships and what has caused your current situation. We will bring back harmony to your life and help you to discover a dreamed-of-relationship, filled with warmth, joy, passion and love. It is never too late to open the door to a happy and better partnership, friendship or love.
YOU are capable to reach this goal.
