“In recent sessions with Brenda Serrée, I’ve been rediscovering my ‘Ikigai.’ What gives direction and meaning to my life after 14 years with the same employer? These open discussions made it clear to me that values, autonomy, and altruism are crucial. Letting go of choosing one direction and embracing the opportunity to do multiple things simultaneously suits me well, allowing me to leverage my qualities better. Brenda is personal, engaged, positive, and holds up a mirror with humor in a pleasant way. Thank you for your excellent guidance! Sascha”

“When friends ask me what I gained from Brenda’s Ikigai coaching, I find it hard to put into words, but it has been incredibly valuable. Thanks to you, I’ve taken significant steps forward. I had been feeling out of place for a while, and the Ikigai journey has set a lot in motion. In just a month, I’ve learned a tremendous amount and applied the new insights. I used to be a huge control freak, and now, with a more relaxed approach to life and work through Ikigai coaching, life suddenly holds so much more.” – Sander (HR Advisor, 28 years old)

“I wanted to thank you through this message for the wonderful conversations in the past weeks and the live session yesterday. The filled pastry was excellent, the coffee delightful, and the insights enriching. I embarked on this journey with an open mind, and I’ve truly enjoyed the enlightening discussions. It remains astonishing how confronting it can be when someone holds up a mirror, even if you believe you know yourself well. There are always aspects that either get ignored or have long been suppressed. I’m already making a promise to myself to schedule a follow-up session with you in the spring!
