Does this sound like you?
... always feel anxious. Work is always in the back of your mind and you have trouble disconnecting.
... feel overwhelmed by all of your responsibilities and struggle to stay calm and grounded.
... constantly feel exhausted, like you are at the end of your rope.
... often are in a bad mood, like the smallest thing could make you snap.
... don't have any time or energy for the things or for the people that you love.
... feel like work has completely taken over your private life.
... have noticed some physical consequences of the stress you're under: poor sleep, troubled digestion, low libido, ...
... don't feel like your normal, youthful, joyful, energised Self anymore!
and you wish...
... that you could handle all of your responsibilities with calm, grounded energy,
... that you could cultivate a healthy lifestyle, based on a positive mindset, healthy habits and daily self-care,
... that you could feel energised at the end of your work day,
... that you could eliminate chronic stress and anxiety from your life, along with all of their negative consequences on your health,
... that you could create real *balance* in your life,
... that you could feel like YOURSELF again,
... without having to compromise on your hard work and professional ambition!
Hi, I'm Victoria!
For a long time, I lived a double life. See, before I became a full-time health coach & yoga teacher, I was a lawyer with a secret passion for the world of wellness.
I did the whole thing: law school, passing the bar exam, internships, two master’s degrees, a prestigious job as a commercial counsel in a big organisation… I was (and still am!) a very high-achiever. I bet this is something we have in common: when we do something, we either do it 100% or not at all… right?
I got into mindfulness when I first started law school as a way to relax. I was going through a lot in my life and I suffered from extremely high levels of stress - so much so that I lost almost half of my hair and developed a myriad of health issues. I realized that something needed to change and started going to my local yoga studio every week, learned meditation, and educated myself about proper nutrition and holistic health.
That’s when the obsession started ;)
Since then, I have accumulated almost a thousand hours of formal training as a yoga & mindfulness instructor and completed a one-year certification in holistic nutrition health coaching from IIN, the world’s largest nutrition school. I have a passion for learning, but even more than that, a passion for teaching.
I see stress & anxiety all around me. It’s like it has become a new trend. Or rather, an epidemic. But I believe that you can do the job you love AND be healthy. That you can hustle AND feel energised at the end of the day. That you can work hard AND be happy.
So, I put together a program to teach my signature methodology that has allowed myself as well as dozens of my clients to eliminate chronic stress & anxiety and create real *balance" in our lives, based on the three pillard of mindfulness, healthy habits and optimal self-care.
That is how "the Balanced Achiever Method" was born!
They have ditched anxiety for good... and so can you!

BAM is a great program. When I joined, I was under tremendous stress, which was affecting my mental and physical health a lot. I really didn't know how to fix it. The practices and conversations with Vivi totally changed my perspective and, to my own surprise, I have so much less stress, in every aspect of life, or would rather say that I have learnt how to manage it. This is really a first time for me, ever.

The BAM program has provided me with the right tools to face everyday challenges with another mindset where I feel more powerful, energized and with the ability to change everything I want. If we put in the effort, everything is possible.

The mix of various mindfulness techniques combined with theory on our subconscious & conscious mind together with regular calls leads to a breathtaking transformation. It's been such a wonderful journey of discovering myself, accepting & loving myself again and finding my way back to my positive energy. I'm so happy I decided to start this program and looking back I can't really understand why I waited so long to start.

When I started BAM I suffered from extreme anxiety, difficulty sleeping and a sense that something needed to change. By the time I finished BAM, my anxiety had almost disappeared and I felt like I had the tools to overcome any difficult situation with a positive mindset and healthy sense of boundaries. I loved Vic’s approach to commitment, questioning how and why we undermine ourselves in striving to become more balanced individuals, and the structure really helped me access each tool as I was ready. Cannot recommend BAM highly enough!
Valerie Cantave, BAM Almni (Lawyer)
When starting BAM, I was unsure of how much the program would actually be able to impact me and allow me to make real change in my life. But now, having gone through the program, I feel like I am a very different/much better version of myself. The practices that Vic has taught me have been instrumental to the positive changes I'm seeing take place in my life now. None of it would have been possible without Vic! At the end of the day, BAM was the best way I could have invested in myself and my only regret is that I didn't know about the program earlier.

This was an extraordinary adventure. The program allowed me to calm down, be more confident and positive about my daily challenges. Before BAM, I did not know that mental health could be improved so quickly, with simple and regular practices and an encouraging coach of course!
So, is BAM the right program for you?
