About

Who’s behind Conscious Strength?

My name is Vera Taihuttu. A co-parenting mom in a relationship. My personal story in short: raised in a domestic violent household, went on selfdestruction mode in my youth, survived a personal bankcrupcy and along the line worked in an high dynamic and demanding world of IT.

In the midst of all that I figured out how I all coped, process and healed from it and noticed how well and natural I could help others with this. People would find me by them self, I did not set out to start helping. The eternal student in me would say, “but I myself aren't ready yet, how can I help others?”, but personal development is a life long process, each phase has new things to learn or even to unlearn from. So from that perspective I changed my view and course. I got retrained and certified and am now happy to guide you in what I value in personal development:

What's Conscious Strength about?

It's about personal development with the main view: self awareness.
I offer different trainings to let you become aware of:

  • how you think (cognition)
  • how you feel (emotion)
  • how you act (behavior)

And how this all interact together, when dealing with for instance:

  • Setting boundaries
  • Unacceptable behavior
  • Recognizing and acknowledging emotions
  • Personal Integrity
  • Dealing with pressure and stress
  • Self-control
  • To persevere

Etc ..

I can help you with developing (more) self-awareness in those areas. To help you identify your pitfalls and your qualities.
Self-awareness is the ability to tune in to your own feelings, thoughts, and actions.

Sounds great, right? But how? Everybody is different, so everybody needs a different approach. Hence the different trainings I offer.

With Conscious Strength I am available to give 1-on-1 training sessions and group training. For kids, youth and adults.
