About Andrea

If you don't who I am or what I do, my name is Andrea Reger, and I have been changing lives for better for over 20 years.

I have been guiding people on their life-transformation journey applying holistic care and non-judgmental support. I work best with those, who are ready to make a change to bring back calmness, confidence, courage, self-love, joy, passion, happiness, energy and fulfilment into their lives, guilt-free.

In the past, for over 16 years - while working in corporate leadership roles -, I was living an extremely stressful life. I prioritized everything and everyone before my own needs. I didn’t enjoy life despite having everything I needed: family, money, career, as I didn’t have what my soul wanted: passion, energy, joy, happiness, calmness, peace and balance.

My health had started deteriorating and it was almost too late when I realized, I had to do something about it. ABOUT ME. I suffered mental health problems and my gut health was compromised too. I overused stimulants to keep me going to a point when my body crashed and one day in April 2021, I couldn’t get out of bed. That was my wake-up call.

I did a lot of research over many years on how to cope with stress and find happiness without harmful substances or prescribed medications. I have discovered and studied amazing alternative ways over almost a decade and when I started implementing them into my life, changes started to happen instantly.

I resigned from my corporate job at the end of 2021, and since then, I have been supporting others on their self-developmental journey.

I have never been healthier, fitter, calmer and happier in my whole life. I feel confident, loved, supported, energized and fulfilled.....and this feeling comes from inside, rather than outside. And this is what I call an achievement that I'm very proud of!

I know you can change your and your circle's (family, friends, clients, etc.) life too and even if you cannot imagine it right now, calm mind, courageous attitude, confidence, energy, happiness and peace is achievable for you too! I will show you the way. (...to read more, click here)
