Education

Verona completed a BA Degree (Majors English & Psychology) PGCE: post grad diploma in Higher Education and a Personal & Business Financial Management Diploma.

Emotions Drive People and People Drive Performance

Working in a corporate environment, Verona became acutely aware that, unresolved emotional issues, inability to focus the mind, subconscious programming, limiting beliefs, stress and trauma subtly drive people without their conscious awareness – which is detrimental to mental, physical and emotional wellbeing and impacts performance.

Verona’s Passion

“As a compassionate and caring person, I want to, and am driven, to make a difference! To empower people with tools to balance their work and personal lives and to realize their full potential.”

“The key to high performance, success and happiness is to live in our natural state of being: one of equanimity, peace, joy, balance, calm, grounded, present and connected to one’s superconscious.”
