Life coaching - The road to a new and positive life
At a certain moment in your life you can feel restless in one or more areas of life. Professional, financial, private or emotional. Life coaching is aimed at self-development. You learn to make choices and you are encouraged to achieve results and actually achieve your goals. Know that the key to success lies with you! It is no longer a secret that we are all extremely busy and think that we no longer have time for ourselves, for some free time. Perhaps you have made choices in the past that no longer make you happy and that you remain attached to. It is therefore all so easy to keep wandering in our familiar life while you realize that there must be more. As a result, we are not feeling well in our skin. We all recognize ourselves sometimes in the sense of 'lack'. Sometimes we don't even know what we want, what we dream of. We know that there is more for us, but we cannot see it. Life coaching ensures that you gain insight into your life again. Together we look for those insights, the causes and that new path. We work with all the potential you have towards that perfect life. The insight that you can take control of your life and finally change things. It's okay to dream and go after it.

Online chess lessons for beginner and intermediate level. Learn the basics and improve quickly!
It doesn't matter if you don't know anything about this subject and you want to get into it or if you already know how to play and you want to master your skills, I can help you with that! It's scientifically proven that chess helps you to develop and strengthen many aptitudes such as: efficient planning, creativity, self-criticism, discipline, logical reasoning, problem solving and concentration. That's why playing chess is so good for mental health or children and adults. But also, and even more important, it's fun!! I've been playing chess since I was 5 years old, competing at an international level and being awarded many times. I've also given chess lessons since I was 15 until now, when I'm 25. With my classes, you'll learn all the strategies and tactics while focusing in the three parts of a chess game: the opening, the middle game and the endgame. Webcam classes are totally feasible for chess both for adults and kids! Thankfully Covid isn't a problem for learning chess. In fact, one of my young students reached the 2020 Under 8 Terefinal of the UK Chess Challenge after only a year of classes!

I strongly believe in learning by understanding, not by pure memorization. We will study all phases of the game (openings, middlegames and endgames), focusing on your main areas of improvement. I will adapt to your request, while offering you tailor-made methods. Thus, I will be able to support you to reach your objectives. I can give lessons via Internet (Skype, Teamviewer, Discord...). See you soon on the chessboard!
