Helping You Move Forward

Hi! I am pleased to find you wishing to get to know me better. My name is Sylvia Riesen and for as long as I can remember, I loved helping people to feel their best and simply be happy.

My goal, and my reality, has always been to be there for others; however, I realized that “one cannot pour from an empty cup”: I had to make myself a priority in order to be able to help others. At that time in my life, I had forgotten that I am worthy of my own help and needed to learn to love myself and find happiness first, in order to help others do the same. If I didn’t, providing support for others made me feel depleted, even weak and fragile, I lacked energy and felt empty. Being a people pleaser, I forgot about my own needs and my own wishes. Sound familiar?

My journey into self-recognition began over 10 years ago, when I experienced my first Reiki session. With every session I felt lighter and lighter, gained more self trust and more confidence. I realized what I needed to change for me to experience freedom. I started doing a lot of work on myself, reading mindset books, practicing meditation, and most of all, I learned to always listen to my own feelings.

I love myself now and I appreciate my vivacious spirit, my zest for new adventure, and my wisdom to recognize what works for me and what does not. It is not always easy, however I try every day to live in the moment and trust myself. I would love for you to achieve the same!
