I'm Inge.

I’m on a mission to help you keep life simple, playful and uncluttered - and to help you really care about self-care.

You see, I know what it’s like to be overridden with fear, insecurity and self-doubt in life and in business. I gave myself, heart and soul, for ten long years to the corporate world, hustling for approval and trying to squish myself into a box I just wasn’t made for. The lack of flexibility, inspiration and creativity crushed me slowly but surely, until my health began to suffer.

I was forced to stop and question many of the decisions I’d made in my life so far.


I began to realise that I was defeated by:

  • my powerful need to achieve,

  • my constant people pleasing,

  • an inability to set healthy boundaries at work and in my personal life,

  • growing feelings of resentment and anger,

  • broken self-confidence, self-criticism and self-sabotage,

  • chronic ingratitude,

  • physical illness, and

  • a deep, deep unhappiness.

The message in the back of my mind that played constantly was, “No matter how hard I work, or how much I do, I will never be enough.”


My anxiety, stress and health challenges manifested physically, emotionally and spiritually. I had reached the end of my rope.


maybe you have to know the darkness before you can appreciate the light

breakthrough  life coaching

My real breakthrough came with life coaching.

I was introduced to a community of people committed to self-love, compassion, and kindness, people knowing and living out their true purpose, people making bold choices and brave changes. I realised that no one else was going to get me out of this dark place - except me!

With the encouragement and support of a life coach, I began to make my bold choices - courageous decisions that have ultimately benefited my emotional, spiritual and physical well-being.

I began to listen to parts of myself that I had shut down, leaving me depressed and lonely.I learned to incorporate play, fun, and joy into my health, business, and relationships again.

The journey up the mountain has been long, but so worth it!

Coming out of of that difficult time reaffirmed my belief in pursuing my dreams of living a strong, healthy life, of travel, and financial stability. More importantly, my journey has set a fire in me to empower other women to listen to their intuition so that they too can live with passion, and find their flow in life and business.
