a little background

Today I’m a certified Transformative Coach having graduated from Michael Neill’s Supercoach Academy in New York.

But, believe it or not, I’ve been working as a banker for more than 20 years!

I was born and raised in the cutest little island of Madeira, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Lucky me! Beautiful place, great weather, nice people… Just not big enough for my dreams.

So, when it was time I went to Lisbon to the university, where I got my Economics degree and started to work in banking. Because of my job, I lived for many years in Lisbon, then moved to Holland and later on to Mozambique. All amazing experiences and incredible learning opportunities. I loved it! Except that I ended up paying a huge personal cost. And I almost lost myself on the way…

Fortunately, life has it’s own way of providing us with second chances, and as if by magic, when all I could see around me was darkness, I got my wake up call!

And suddenly it all fell into place. The circumstances around me were exactly the same that had thrown me into a serious depression, but I learned to look at my glass as half full and not empty as before. I found my life’s purpose, my mission, my passion, my joy. I experienced a real transformation and with it I unearthed myself.

After all, all it took was a deep look inside, because all I ever needed (truth, happiness, peace) was already there, I just had to find it, grab it and transform it into LOVE.


why coaching?

When you go through such a major life changing experience like I did, it’s impossible to keep it to yourself. You have to pass it on.

You feel like you can change the world!

It all made perfect sense when I realized the interconnectedness between my biggest values, my motivations and my skills. And on top of it all… I had the opportunity to learn from the best of the best in the coaching world! The delight is unmistakable when the magic is perceived and when you experience really owning your life.

And because I truly get that everything is already within you I want to be there, for anyone who is willing to take on this amazing journey of self-discovery and whom I might assist.

This, I believe, is my mission.



what people are saying


Dear Alex!

Whatever you perceive to be good and of use in others is within you! You are strong and loving, courageous and kind beyond measure! Keep nurturing all that is good and wonderful!

You are loved absolutely and unconditionally!

With all my love and gratitude for your presence in my life!

I’ve been a client of Alexandra’s for about 4 months and her work with me has been amazing.  One of the things that I do is that I’m very hard on myself…very.  Alexandra is wonderfully gentle, considerate, patient and loving and is just phenomenal at guiding you to see things from a positive and appreciative perspective.  Her work has been invaluable for me and many of the strategies we’ve talked about I use every day.  As I work in a similar industry, I’m fully aware of the value of having a trained professional to guide you along your life’s path and show you a few fun shortcuts when you think you’ve got bogged down with everything. If positive change is what you really want that you can apply to all areas of  your life, contact Alexandra.  She’s delightful, you won’t be disappointed and your life will be so much richer as a result.
