Hi, I’m Barbara

A life coach, creativity facilitator and Reiki master.

My mission is to help you rebuild after burnout, help you reconnect to your true, authentic self and develop your creative mindset in order to create the life you dream of, filled with joy, fun, meaning, freedom and magic.

I believe we all deserve to live a happy and joyful life and I believe we are all born creative.

Creativity is not just art, it’s the ability to make your ideas manifest in the world Chase Jarvis

I was a very imaginative, creative, child, always creating stories, crafting art, drawing…


Life happend,

I had my challenges, I grew up…

But creativity was always around me. I worked 25+ years in an “artistic” and cultural world ( TV, magazine, music industry) always surrounded by very creative and passionate people. And I loved it. But with the years passing I started to feel it wasn’t fulfilling anymore… I didn’t listen to myself and in 2009 I ended up completely burnt out. I didn’t know who I was anymore and what I wanted, I was not happy. I knew I had to change something but didn’t know where to start and how to do it. I was forced to dive within and look at how I was living my life.

A close friend gave me the  book “the artist way” by Julia Cameron and it changed my life!


I embarked on a 10+ years of self discovery and transformational journey that brought me to change everything.

creativity helps you open your mind to unlimited possibilities

I quit my job, start travelling more, realizing some of my dreams (all Route 66 from Chicago to LA with friends, volunteering at an animal shelter in Zimbabwe…), start taking art and photography classes, sold my apartment in Belgium, moved to France, and finally started my own business… All my decisions were more aligned with who I really was. 



It was not always easy but I have never felt more alive.

 I reconnected to my north star and now I know what I want, where I want to go, who I want to be and what kind of life I want to live.

I would love to support you on your own adventure and help you live your best, successful, meaningful and happy life.

Are you ready to create a joyful and colourful life and reconnect to your true, authentic self by using your creativity again?
