a skill at doing a specified thing,
typically one acquired
through practice.



elating to or denoting an emotionally appropriate, significant, purposive, and responsible mode of human life.



the way in which two or more people or things are connected or behave towards each other.

Take a moment. Close your eyes. Imagine yourself.

Imagine yourself not afraid of showing the world who you are and what you want.
Imagine finding yourself coming out of hiding.
No more pretending in face of the "social" norms.
No more violating your own values, just to please someone else.

Imagine standing in a crowd. Standing up tall. Radiating confidence. Trusting yourself no matter what. Because you know that you are good enough, smart enough, worthy enough. You simply are enough.

Imagine standing in your truth. And not being ashamed of that truth. 

That, my dear, is the art of authentic. 

Obviously there's no magic pill that you can take and — whoosssh — suddenly you're the most authentic woman on earth.

The Art of Authentic requires you to take a deep look inside.
What do you value?
What do you desire?
What inspires you?
What do you want to create?
What legacy do you want to leave behind?
What's your purpose on this big, blue rock?

The Art of Authentic requires you to practice the truth you are. 
And to fail miserably. And to never give up but to always try your best, whatever happens.

So if you feel lost. If you're afraid of letting your truth shine through, it's time to reconnect. To reconnect to your body. To feel your truth inside. 

Because I know one thing for sure. You can get clear on your very own Art of Authentic.
You can get clear on what an authentic life, career, relationship, health and well-being feels like for you.

The Art of Authentic has a few essential ingredients.
Values, strengths, integrity, compassion and kindness, self-care and self-acceptance, to name a few. The Art of Authentic is alchemy. It's creating the perfect blend of these ingredients, so that they work for you.

And I'm here to help you make your own special Potion of Authentic.
I'm here to help you master the Art of Authentic.

The most important thing for you to know right now is that the Art of Authentic is an Inside Job.

An inside job means that you’re willing to do the work.


Doing The Work.

The Art of Authentic is a process. It requires your commitment. It requires you to make mistakes. To be afraid and be totally fine with that. To be patient and to trust. To start over and try again. And again. And again 

Practicing the Art of Authentic is intense work, whether it's in your life, relationships, career or health. And the ride can be bumpy.

Yet, fear not. I'll be the Donkey to your Shrek. I'm there to push you, soothe you and keep you going. I'm there to help you handle the rough patches, big and small.

Buckle up and enjoy the ride because this is so worth the effort.

Transform & Benefit.

The Art of Authentic reconnects your body and mind. Your heart and soul. It reconnects you to your inner wisdom. To all the truths you carry inside of you. 

Living an authentic life helps you reduce stress, set boundaries, take better care of yourself, be kind —yet firm, and to be in integrity with your deepest truth. 

  • On a physical level it will reduce your cortisol levels and calm the hormonal storm.
  • On an emotional level it will uncover the thoughts and patterns that cause you pain or discomfort. It will help you release the blocks that keep you from moving forward to a life in tune with you.
  • On a spiritual level it will help you get to know yourself better. And to grow. Exponentially.

And you know what? We can always strive to do our best and be real.
Each and every day.
When we strive to live an authentic life, we always win.

I’m Christel and I help you create an authentic life and business.

As a Life Coach, Wayfinder and Mentor I help you take a good look at what your life or business looks like right now.
At what inspires you and what scares you.
At the obstacles you create that keep you stuck.
At what you can't or won't let go of.
At what isn't useful anymore in your life. At what hurts you. At whom you just can't forgive. 

At your "why's" and "how's".

Together we'll discover what small, brave and bold steps you can make to stand in your truth and own your story.

The most important thing I want you to know is that you can do it.

And that it's never too late to start.
