Petra Velzeboer is a therapist, facilitator and executive coach. She skilled up after a childhood with no education living in a religious cult that erased her identity and future. Through depression, anxiety, alcohol dependence and suicidal thoughts she reached her rock bottom at 25 and decided she had a choice: to learn how to truly live or to end her life now. Over a decade of experimenting on strategies for success and learning everything about mindset and psychology, her life is 100% different than what it might have been! Her goal is to teach others who are near their rock bottom, to help them learn the fast track for improving their lives! Join Petra as she interviews people from all walks of life about their journey to discovering that their superpowers are nurtured in their pain and their success is crafted through their story.

Customer Reviews

Brilliant and inspiring

I've really enjoyed every episode, they've been extremely useful and interesting. Whether you relate to the guests' experiences or not, the talks always offer extremely useful lessons for dealing with everyday challenges or longer term issues. The discussions are humbling, inspiring and empowering...can't wait for the next episode!

A very good listen!

I’ve listened through the first episode with Oskar and they touch upon subjects that are fairly close to me, and I seem to agree with the analysis quite a bit. I like Petra’s neutral stance through the whole episode as she lets the guest speak and make his points very clearly and this format seems to work very well especially for what seems to be a very difficult set of topics for a person opening up. can’t wait to listen to more interviews. Thoroughly recommended!

Why you should give these a listen!

Super motivational podcasts, episode 2 in particular was just what I needed to hear the other morning! I recently went self-employed and it can be oh so easy to feel isolated and doubt yourself. Coupled with this I'm facing my own demons with unhealthy indulgences in alcohol and food to fill the empty space I have with too much time on my hands whilst not feeling motivated to DO anything about it.
Petra unpicks the fears we all have (but maybe don't know how to express) in such a down to earth manner, when you listen to her talk you feel confident that she 'gets' the listener and isn't just talking at you.
If you want to kick start your positive mindset and need a little help getting back on track then give these a listen!
