About me


I have dedicated my life to creativity as a professional artist and teacher. I have been through my own struggles and challenges and started a journey to shift my life, discovering the secret of happiness and that nothing is impossible. This incredible system is based on evocative coaching, with a spiritual approach. it resonated with me incredibly having the opportunity to work through self discovering and changing limiting beliefs. I have learned how to change my mind set and now i have all the tools needed to live the life i love. then I have realized i really wanted to help others shifting their life like i did! and that is why i became a transformational life coach.

As an artist, author and a Certified DreamBuilder Coach, I can help you design and manifest a life that’s in harmony with your soul’s purpose.


Now combining this background with the proven DreamBuilder technology, I am helping clients achieve extraordinary results in accelerated time. I work with people to transform their lives and close the gap between the life they were living and the life they LOVE living. I implement art exercises based on Mandala art and affirmation techniques as well.

I offer content-rich interactive sessions that take participants on a journey in which they design, define, test, and experience a crystal clear vision of the life they would love – a life that is in alignment with their highest purpose. They will have a unique opportunity to “step into” the life they are imagining and feel a resounding “yes”.

the first session and intro is completely free of charge!


When joining the program we will have a hr session a week over the phone or at times meeting in person if locally based and with my support and lifework by the end of the program you will have discovered the tools to be able to achieve your goals and vision for your life and also have the mind set to deal with all circumstances and seeing opportunities you didn't ever imagined.

I will give more specific information about the program itself during our first call which, as mentioned, is completely free of charge.

Here is a testimonial from one of my clients:

Dream builder Testimony by Wendy Charlton

I started the Dream-builder programme with Monika in October 2018. At the time I had space in my busy life to apply myself fully which is important as it requires some effort and commitment. In relation to a lifetime though it is only a short amount of time to make that dedication. At first, I found it difficult to visualise and create something which is further on in the future, however, I soon realised the usefulness of writing down my dream in detail.

The exercises, audio recordings and weekly contact with Monika helped me to recognise my thoughts, beliefs and fears which were holding me back from achieving my dream. It’s important to be honest with yourself during this process and to really tease out any insecurities you may have. Again, the act of writing is a useful aid in getting deep inside the mind, I found it cathartic, clarifying and cleansing. It’s also a great way to record everything so that you can re-visit and remind yourself of the work done.

I found the audio recordings helped in that they provided interesting examples of people’s personal stories and useful affirmations to keep me going on the dream builder journey. I see myself as still on this journey and I’m now more grateful and appreciative of the familiar and overlooked things in life. I have a much better approach to dealing with thoughts and feelings about failure. Again, the writing helps to map out where these ideas come from, helping to move you on from thoughts and behaviour patterns which hold you back.

There are parts of the programme which can be more difficult to tackle than others. For example, I struggled with the exercises on listening to intuition and found that I had to work hard to tap into mine. I tend to over-think things and ignore my feelings of intuition. It’s an ongoing journey, learning to tune in and turn up the frequency. Also, I’m fiercely independent preferring not to ask other people in my life for support. The gift of feedback and partners in-believing exercises have really encouraged me to be more open and let go of this fear.

Overall, I have found Dream-builder to be extremely beneficial at a time in my life when I felt it was really needed and wanted. A few months have gone by since I completed the programme and I am feeling and seeing the benefits every day. This only encourages me more to keep on going and I can refer back to the programme materials whenever I need. I also found it useful when listening to the audio recordings and the conversations with Monika to make notes in a book that can be easily carried around. This programme has worked better for me than anything else that I have tried as it provides an inclusive and holistic approach.
