Hey there I’m Angeliki, but friends call me Angie.
I am happy you have found my page. I am Rapid Transformational Therapist and a Certified Hypnotherapist. I also have a background in Management. But, who am I really? Now, that’s a long story, but I am a Greek who grew up in Ethiopia, married an Italian and has 2 amazing boys whose future looks very Dutch. I like to think of myself as an easy going, understanding and empathetic person. I love nature and animals. I have friends from all over the world and I appreciate and love to learn about different cultures. I am generally curious and fascinated by life, so I love trying and learning new things.
I am currently living in Groningen and it’s the first time in my life that I feel at home. Of course, this was not initially the case. Upon my arrival I was already planning my departure. Having lived in a few different countries feeling at home has always been a challenge for me. However, I am pleased to say I’m home now with my family and my awesome circle of friends and acquaintances. Getting to this point was quite a journey of up and downs.
Coming from a rather conservative environment, once I left my childhood home in Ethiopia, all I had to face the world was a low self-esteem, no confidence and an endless list of fears. This gradually triggered self-doubt, leading to anxiety and depression. Slowly I withdrew from the outside world and stayed in my comfort zone and just did what was expect of me rather then what I truly desired. I lost connection with myself.
My journey to becoming a therapist started when I decided to quit my job in the corporate world. As a child I had got the belief that in order to achieve success and happiness I had to work for a multinational company or just simply for a known brand. Once I actually achieved this, I too quickly realised that that was not my dream, it was someone’s, but definitely not mine. I saw no purpose in the work, I felt no joy and I knew in my heart that I was far from my life’s course. That was when I hit my lowest of lows. I realised I had it all wrong. I felt unhappy, unfulfilled and I knew life couldn’t go on like this. I then realised I had the need to have a profound purpose in life and I soon understood that I could achieve that by following my heart and doing what gave me the most joy; helping others and make a positive difference.
So, I started off by focusing on doing some soul searching and submerging myself in lots of books and online resources. I decided I wanted to have a career that made a difference to the world, that helped people, that I could connect with others and really bring joy to them. Through my tons of searches, I finally came across Marisa Peer and her award-winning method; Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT). With it, my life changed drastically, I went from being in the dark, to seeing light at the end of the tunnel and finally being in the light myself. I fell in love with RTT and decided I finally found my life’s calling. This has led me to becoming a qualified therapist and hypnotherapist so that I can use it to do for others what it did for me. I am really honoured to help others transform their life for the better, just like I did.
