Welcome, dear guest!

Come on in! Perhaps we have already met, perhaps not, it is still important to know: how are you? Do you remember when was the last time someone showed genuine interest in that?

Aaretesaar (Treasure Island) will not take you on a quest in a classical sense. There is no ship, no plane, cheap or expensive resort packages. However, it is just the right place where to start a journey to search your soul and find a treasure inside yourself.

A wise man once said: the greatest problem with people is that they take their music to their grave without playing it while still alive.

They are either too faint-hearted or modest for self-realisation. Thus, if you need a companion to contemplate over the choices you have to make in your life, you have come to the right place. Whether you seek reassurance while searching for a job or need more energy to be happy at your current workplace, I will gladly share my knowledge and experience.

I have been working on the subject of workplace happiness and self-development from various angles since 2001. It has become my true passion. Now I am at your service to help you find your passion and powers sources in life, by using methods of creative consultation and interactive lectures. Look around and feel comfortable. Should you have any questions, let me know.

See you on the quest!

She is always positive and cheerful, and with her presence, body language and well-argued explanations she instils optimism in her audience as well. Tiina has a talent of finding a positive element even in things that seem negative at first. Participants have always given positive feedback to Tiina’s presentations.

    Tiina is an excellent example of a person with open communication and good listening skills.
    She is an educator with polished performing skills, engaging communication and clear way of expression.
    Tiina can make the audience listen …. even if the topic is very soft and the audience contains hard nuts to crack, such as teachers with highly technical background.
    I believe that course participants got a boost to find their (WORKPLACE) HAPPINESS FORMULA and courage to head for their dreams, including their dream job.

    When she comes to hold a course in Tartu, Tiina brings along magical energy that lasts throughout the training day. She delves into any job with the same sharpness as when going for her winter morning swim.

    Tiina possesses the most important secret skill of a professional educator – to stretch out her “antennae” and look out for the situations, needs and opportunities emerging in the group during the session. Tiina has stayed with us for years, mainly because of her ability to get genuine contact and achieve the goals even with people who are currently in a very complicated situation in life. Tiina is definitely someone you simply have to meet in person and to share thoughts with.
