Hello, I'm Gordana, 

I help highly driven women like yourself break up with stress and get off that burnout treadmill!

I help them overcome known and unknown sources of stress that prevent them from living an abundant, happy and healthy life.

What makes Rise To Health Coaching unique?

Well, let me say that I believe we're all unique and special in our own ways. So, why would you want to work with me?

There are many reasons why you should consider working with me. I'm smart, funny, authentic, honest, and I'm simply the best! I'm beautiful, I'm wonderful and I'm me. Recognise those words? Tina Turner and Robbie Williams anyone?

Okay, let's get serious for a moment.

I believe that what makes me unique is not only my education, my knowledge in the field of health and life coaching and all my other training programmes. It is my story and my life experience. 

I was one of you - highly driven professional who always strived for the best but left feeling overworked and under-valued.

Check out the video below to find out (or keep reading you prefer that).

Well, let's start with I'm not perfect.

I'm a recovering sugar addict,  a people pleaser and a workaholic.

For the majority of my life I didn't think that I was good enough. I was lacking confidence and had low self-esteem.

But on the plus side, I am a highly ambitious person, a perfectionist and I can make people laugh. 

I know that this is not really what makes me special. What I'm trying to say is that I am a real person with real challenges and I managed to overcome most of them. But I am not perfect by all means, however, I found my calling and my superpower but the one thing that matters here is that I can help you with your health challenges.

Imagine you could

  • create the life you desire
  • increase your energy
  • sleep better and wake up rested
  • become stress resilient
  • get a clear head and better focus
  • look and feel 10 years younger
  • burn body fat naturally

You see, if you want to achieve all your health goals, you have to understand that food & nutrition play a vital role in transforming your life. As a nutritional therapist I will guide you through your lifestyle makeover so that you can thrive physically, mentally and emotionally. You will not only get relief from bloating and other digestive challenges, but most importantly, you will strengthen your immune system which is vital if you are living a busy life.

I  can help you get off that burnout treadmill because I have been there myself, experienced burnout myself and I now help others get off that burnout treadmill without wasting valuable time and making the same mistakes as I did.

What really makes me unique is my personality and the way I work with clients.

My sessions are FUN, LIVELY, EXCITING, EDUCATIVE, and they will leave you hungry for more. I will provide the right system, the right support and the right accountability, which is fundamental in succeeding habit changes.

You will receive curated information so you never feel overwhelmed. I know how busy you are and there is no point in teaching you everything I know.

What you are going to learn during the time with me is only what you need at this particular time and stage of your life.

We will focus on what YOU want. This is all about YOU, YOUR dreams, YOUR desires and YOUR life.

Are you intrigued but still not 100% sure what to do? Well, I am making this easy for you. I'm offering you a complimentary 45 minute health breakthrough coaching session where you can get a feeling for what it would be like working with me.

We will uncover where you're stuck, what keeps you from moving forward and why the things you tried before didn't work.

After this session we will know whether you're a good fit for me and whether I'm a good fit for you.

So, take advantage of my offer and schedule your session today. Simply click on the button below and we'll take it from there. 

I look forward to connecting with you.

What My Clients Say


I started working with Gordana, because I was at that stage in my life where I was having a business and confidence wobble. My business was doing well and growing, but in my head I felt I had nothing to grasp onto, no anchors and that it was all built on sand. I was beginning each day lacking in confidence and full of trepidation for what the day may hold.

Gordana completely turned things around for me in the 3 months I was under her wing, speaking to me once a week and really getting to grips as to the real reason I was having these wobbles. She helped tremendously and gave me tools to help when things became a little overwhelming. I still have the wobbles, but they are less and whereas before I used to despair if things did not go as positively as I would have liked and get quite down, now I can turn the negative times around much more quickly and really take a long hard look at myself as to what I have achieved.

I know now that I have achieved a heck of a lot and it doesn't matter when things don't go as planned, because life is like that and I shouldn't be too hard on myself. I love the days when I remember all that Gordana has taught me and I feel relaxed, loose and self assured, which is a great feeling to have. I am grateful for my life and Gordana has helped me see that.

I had the opportunity to work with Gordana as my health and life coach over twelve weeks. A great decision! During the programme we have worked on improving my health, reducing stress, goal-setting, confidence building and having the right mindset to achieve dreams. After making just a few small changes to my diet, the brain fog has cleared and my energy levels have increased dramatically. I no longer experience an afternoon slump in energy and can focus again. With Gordana's guidance, I now understand how my emotions and thought patterns trigger the decisions I make and she has given me the tools to identify obstacles and solutions myself. I feel empowered to drive forward to a new future.

Gordana has a passion for helping people and is an inspirational coach. She is  incredibly sincere and has given me the tools to identify obstacles and solutions myself. I am continuing to work with Gordana, who has my strongest recommendation for anyone seeking a coaching professional of the highest calibre.

I can’t believe I lasted all the way to the end of the  90 day programme. This is the first time I actually enjoyed making changes to my lifestyle – I even quit smoking! This has never happened before. The best thing was that I never had to be hungry and that’s a BIG issue for me, having been on diets where I was restricted to 500 calories a day! This program is the best non-diet programme I’ve ever done! And Gordana made it easy for me to understand why I’m doing what I’m doing. I will definitely recommend this programme to my colleagues, family and friends.

My Journey

Every one of us is on a unique walk of life.

We don't know what life has prepared for us and when we look back, we might think about the things we could have done differently.

Some people just accept what life throws at them, other go out of their way to find happiness and satisfaction, or whatever it is that they are looking for.

I am one of those people who always strives for more.

I consider myself a healthy, happy and fun loving person. I can say that I finally found my calling. I am grateful for what life has to offer me.

Being a Health and Life Coach and a nutritional therapist is what I want to do and breathe for years to come. That’s how much I love what I do but It hasn’t always been this way.

Not long ago, I thought that I could never get over my anxiety and depression. Life wasn’t always easy. I was brought up in a country where you live to work rather than the other way around. Qualifications meant everything. Testimonials from previous work places had to be outstanding in order to secure a good job. And the competition never sleeps.

For years I lived under enormous pressure, wanting to excel at work. I totally neglected my health and well-being and lived for my jobs and my holidays. Nevertheless, I was always in search for something greater, something that would finally make me happy. It wasn’t so much the money, or having lots of it, that was my driving force. It was the freedom to do what I want, to be where I want to be and to live the life I always dreamed about. I created a vision for myself but it almost seemed impossible to reach my goals. I was constantly living in fear of failing – at work, in relationships and with money.

That fear prevented me from achieving my goals. I was afraid to be ‘too good’ at work. I thought it might upset my work colleagues. I always tried to please my friends because I was afraid I’d lose them if I wasn’t the kind of friend they wanted.

Many years of extremely hard work and ambition resulted in well paid jobs in marketing, PR, project and event management. It enabled me to travel the world.

Travelling is one of my greatest passions in life.

I spent a great amount of time living my dream while travelling around the world and discovering foreign places and cultures. But I still didn't feel like I lived an abundant life.

Sadly, the constant stress and pressure took its toll on my health. I developed several stress related illnesses that made my life a living hell. With no other option available at that time, I kept going. Not being able to talk about it made me feel very lonely. I felt that I was on my own.

To cut a long story short – I wasted many years ignoring the signs of self-care neglect. I never seemed to have found time for self-care until I collapsed. I reached rock bottom - I had burnout! That’s when I had my ‘aha’ moment. I realised that I had to change my life profoundly in order to get better.

First of all, I had to learn to relax, find a way to manage stress and, most importantly, learn to love myself. Not an easy task, I can tell you, because I didn’t know how. I didn’t have anyone who would motivate me and who would stretch me. No one who'd get me out of my comfort zone.

Extensive research in the field of health and nutrition led to me signing up for a course to become a nutritional therapist.

Soon I realised that I wanted to go more in depth and help people figure out what is stopping them from leading a healthy lifestyle. 

If I can help them, they wouldn't have to go through what I went through. Advising people on nutrition alone didn’t satisfy me so I decided to become a health & well-being coach (Health Coach Institute).

This change of career turned out to be the best decision I ever made. My studies have taught me so much, not only about nutrition and health in general, but also about myself, my body, mind and spirit. Mindfulness and meditation were also part of my personal development as well as how to take care of myself.

During my studies I’ve learned about the power of gratitude, how to live life to the fullest and how to be the best version of myself. But most importantly, I learned that I don’t have to walk all of my life journey on my own. It is okay to accept help from time to time in order to get that little bit further, faster.

We all need motivation, support & accountability.

That's why I decided to become a health and life coach. I want to share my knowledge and experience with others and I want to help people, who have the desire to make changes in their lives, create new habits that last.

My mission is to help high achievers transform their lives so that they can thrive emotionally, physically and mentally.

I want them to fall in love with who they are and to feel empowered to take their life into their own hands.
