Originating from a third-world country, Lucia once believed that happiness was contingent upon achieving specific external milestones, a mindset termed as “conditional happiness” or a “destination mindset.” She chased tangible ambitions, associating joy with goals like global travel, financial stability, ideal employment, or starting a family.

However, Lucia’s perspective evolved as she discovered that genuine contentment isn’t solely linked to external circumstances. While deeply committed to helping individuals achieve their aspirations, she acknowledges the importance of finding internal fulfillment in the present. This “Internal Goal” or “The Goal WITHIN” as she calls it, forms a connection with one’s true desires, laying the groundwork for authentic motivation and enabling the attainment of genuine happiness.

Despite accomplishing global travels, securing her “dream job,” and entering marriage, Lucia still experienced a sense of emptiness. This inner void, akin to perpetual anticipation of happiness, led her into a battle with depression, which she now regards as the catalyst for monumental change.

Driven by insatiable curiosity, Lucia embarked on a quest to comprehend human potential, uncovering the transformative power of neuroplasticity. Through her journey filled with trials and setbacks, she embraced Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Hypnotherapy, enabling her to rewrite her story, discover her true self, and find unprecedented happiness.

Now dedicated to sharing her wisdom, Lucia guides individuals on transformative journeys, unveiling their authentic selves and empowering them to achieve their aspirations. Her expertise spans personal growth, mental wellness, business success, improved relationships, overcoming challenges, and self-improvement. Lucia’s mission is to equip individuals with tools, training, and unwavering support to craft lives they cherish, with their subconscious minds as allies.

Driven by love and unwavering commitment, Within-Hypnotherapy stands on the pillars of authenticity and a profound desire to foster thriving lives. Expect her to deliver genuine value and strive for excellence every step of the way.
