Do you often find yourself wishing you felt more confident and able to live your life more fully?
Maybe you’re not quite showing who you really are to other people, worried they’ll judge you and not accept you. Maybe it’s happened before, so now you find yourself acting wary. But now you’re feeling lonely out there on your own.
Or maybe you tend to try and figure out what people expect of you, keeping your deeper thoughts to yourself in order to not upset anyone. You care about other people’s needs, of course. Except that you know your own aren’t being met and it hurts.
It’s tough, trying to fill everyone else’s expectations while trying to find your own path in the world. The disconnect between who you truly are and how you show yourself to the world likely drains you, maybe making you feel it’s not even your own life you’re living. It’s stressful to try to be someone you’re not.
In the end, all you really want is to have the confidence to get your voice heard and be fully yourself.
Gaining a deeper sense of your old patterns
You’ve probably already done a lot of work with yourself – maybe through self-help books, therapy or some other kind of holistic work – gaining self-awareness and understanding of your emotions and reasons behind your behaviour. Yet you keep finding yourself in a familiar pattern – keeping parts of yourself hidden and holding back.
Patterns like this run deep. Often what happens is that no matter how much intellectual or mental processing you do, the underlying patterns are still there.
To truly heal, a more holistic approach is needed. One that connects the understanding of how your mind works with the deeper levels of wisdom in your body and heart. And one that releases all the accumulated stress from your body and your nervous system.
“I really had no idea that my body reacts so strongly to everything, especially to other people’s emotions. I also hadn’t realized how much tension I hold in I my muscles when I’m just thinking. It was interesting to see how earlier experiences can be stored in the body as tensions etc. … I now have new tools for setting my own boundaries, because following other people’s emotions is very draining.”
This is why I created this therapeutic coaching program, to help you release patterns that don’t serve you and find new, more fulfilling ways to live your life. To find confidence within yourself and learn how to deal with daily stress in deeply nourishing ways.
Is this for you?
This program is for you, if you:
- want to feel more confident in yourself
- find yourself worried that people will judge you if they find out who you are deep down
- care deeply about other people’s needs but know that you really need to pay more attention to your own
- often feel drained trying to meet everyone else’s expectations
- find yourself frustrated with how you don’t seem to get your own voice heard
- want to understand yourself better
- yearn for a deeper connection with yourself
- have an open mind toward holistic practices
This may not be the right program for you, if you:
- are looking for a quick fix to a stressful situation, expecting to find ways to manage external circumstances without going deeper
- don’t believe in mind-body connection or don’t trust holistic practices
- are only interested in voice training and not in exploring the therapeutic aspects of using your own voice
An important note about trauma: In case you have any untreated trauma that tends to affect your sense of security, this program may not be a good fit. You might want to find a trauma therapist first, or talk to me about the possibility of starting music therapy instead. This program has therapeutic qualities, but is not a replacement for therapy.
Benefits of my musical approach
This program combines individual coaching with elements from sound healing and music therapy, helping you connect with your body and your emotions and be present with yourself with compassion.
The power of fully expressing yourself is deeply connected with your own voice. Learning to trust your own voice and working through the layers of insecurities and shame around it help you feel safe sharing yourself and your truth with the world.
Sound healing and music therapy is a powerful combination, allowing for processing on several levels, including physical, emotional and subconscious. Focusing what’s going on for you on all of these levels gives you more clarity about yourself and your life, and helps release patterns that no longer serve you.
“Stepping forward through music has made it easier to be more open when talking as well. … The musical methods have given me more awareness about my emotions, helped me in expressing them and made me feel lighter overall. … Your presence is healing: you listen, inquire and give space and I felt accepted and understood.”
Maarit, career advisor
With this therapeutic coaching program you’ll start to notice more confidence and less daily stress in your everyday life. In addition you’ll find:
- A better connection with yourself to help you take steps to being more visible and getting yourself heard
- Ways to release stress and past emotional experiences from your body and balance your nervous system
- Keys to self-compassion in order to better start trusting yourself

- A better sense of your own boundaries and the courage to maintain them
- Stronger body awareness and an understanding of how your body speaks to you
The way I use music in my work is to help you get more easily in touch with your emotions as well as your body. You don’t have to have any kind of musical experience to be able to participate.
“I’ve been looking for many years trying to find out what my voice is for. It’s for myself, who knew! That means so much for me. You really helped me get to the heart of it.”

Supporting your personal journey
The work we do in this program is deeply powerful. And making changes in your life, especially in working with patterns that have often been developed over years, takes time. You can’t make the types of lasting changes to your life that you’re looking for in a single session, or even a few. That’s why this program is designed so I can support you for as long as you need.
This program is structured to give you the time and space you need to learn to access the wisdom of your body and heart and work with yourself, integrating everything that arises along the way. Everyone will move through this process in their own pace. Some weeks you’ll notice immediate insight and relief as you start to integrate the learnings. And, for most people, it takes at least a few months to start seeing lasting changes, such as increased confidence and less daily stress in your life.
Musical mage at your service
I’ve been educating myself in the healing power of sound and music since 2015. I received my sound healing training from certified sound therapist Merja Valve, and I also completed several shorter courses in different healing instruments and therapeutic use of my own voice. I’m currently in clinical music therapy training in Eino Roiha Institute and will receive my therapist certification at the end of 2021.
In addition, I’ve long held an interest in holistic healing. I’ve spent a decade studying and practicing mindfulness and emotional processing, as well as other modalities such as reflexology and NLP.
One of the most important things I’ve discovered through my own personal journey is holding a non-judgemental, compassionate space for my clients to find their own answers. My job is not to direct or teach, it’s to accompany you on a journey of self-discovery.
“Anni is one of the most warm-hearted and patient people I know. She listens and is present in a way that you feel seen and your problems start to unravel in your mind, just because someone listens and supports you.”
Emilia, customer service coordinator
“I found it easy to be with you. I also didn’t feel I needed to worry about what kind of things I could talk to you about. You’re warm and present. I felt good and safe being with you.”
This program is designed to get you started on your journey of self-discovery and includes:
- Ten 60 minute sessions with me over 5 months, either in person in Lauttasaari, or online through a video call.
We’ll meet twice a month, and each session may include, depending on your individual situation and needs, any of the following:
- Meditative work to help you calm down your nervous system and listen deeply to yourself and your intuition
- Active musical work including singing & drumming, to help you feel safe and confident in your body and using your voice
- Resonant work where harmonic sound vibrations help you balance your body and mind, strengthen your body connection and find new ways to deal with your emotions
In addition, you’ll receive:
- Personalized exercises
Each time we meet I’ll offer you easy practices you can do at home. These will help you find more spaciousness and connection with yourself wherever you are and will deepen your learning.
- Email support
I’ll be available between sessions via email in case something important comes up, so you don’t have to wait until the next session to get the support you need.
- A recorded meditation
I have recorded a meditation specifically to help you access your sense of self-worth anytime you need a boost of confidence.
The price for the whole program is 800€, payable in one single payment or in five monthly payments of 160€ / month.
