¡Hola! Soy penélope
Health Coach & Podcaster, introvert and optimist, passionate about human potential.
I firmly believe that we humans are capable of achieving anything we set our minds to, and I believe that the inner work is one of the most effective and rewarding tools to achieve it.
Although this is not something I have always seen this way. It’s a lesson I had to learn the hard way. For almost ten years I pursued the myth of “success” by working non-stop in the advertising industry, constantly searching for external validation: promotions at work, outings with friends, distractions through traveling, anything to avoid facing how I was feeling inside: empty, disconnected, with no sense of purpose.
Until January 2011, when everything in my life fell apart due to an eating disorder and job burnout. Suddenly, I found myself totally lost, jobless, with no energy, so I agreed to start therapy (thanks to my family’s intervention!).
It was the beginning of my inner journey. And although this is a lifelong process, I’m very grateful and happy with the person I am today after ten years of inner work: Happy in my own skin, aligned with my purpose and in love with the life I intentionally create day by day.
All of this didn’t happen by following all-size-fits-all formulas to achieve life’s goals. Quite the opposite. It was a process that required me to stop doing and start being. To unlearn old ways to see and live life and relearn new ways, more real, authentic and unique to who I really am.
That is why, in 2015, I decided to leave the advertising industry and pursue my true passion in life: Support others on their journey of self-discovery and inner work to consciously create a life they love. A healthy, happy and purposeful life. To do this, I got certified as a Holistic Health Coach by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York (CIHC | IIN) and I am a member of the International Association of Health Coaches (IAHC).
There’s no fixed path and time you must follow in your life. There are as many ways of living as people in the world. The secret is to define what success and happiness mean to you, and how this is translated into your day to day.
Through my process of ten years, I have discovered that Coaching is a powerful tool for self-knowledge and the creation of the life we want. It is finally my experience, what has worked for me personally and with my clients throughout these years, that I share with you in the content I create and the coaching I offer.
I don’t believe in dogmas and formulas that apply equally to everyone. However, I believe that the tools we learn along the way can be very helpful for those who begin this inner journey. So it is my hope that you find useful and helpful the tools and resources I share here.
To get a better idea about the work I do, go to Work With Me section where I give you more details about my Individual Coaching sessions and other online resources I’m currently working on like my Membership Program y Online Courses (to be announced soon!). In my Blog section you will find free tools and resources that I share every week as well.
The inner work is a lifelong process. But you don’t have to do it alone. I’m here to support you on this journey. And as you discover who you really are and what makes you happy, you can actively create the life you want. You start aligning with more authentic relationships, better opportunities to live your purpose, and more enriching experiences in general.
You can achieve anything you set your mind to. I have no doubt about it.
Welcome to my website. I hope you find here the tools and resources you need to create a life you love.
