Hello, I'm Gordana,
I help high achievers like yourself break up with stress and prevent burnout!
I help you overcome your known and unknown sources of stress and flaws in your life, that prevent you 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.
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, I am an ex-smoker, I used to be a people pleaser and a workaholic.
And most of my life I didn't think that I was good enough and I had no confidence and a 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
- manage your stress better and learn how to keep calm
- get a clear head and better focus
- look and feel 10 years younger
- have better sex
- improve your diet
You see, in order 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 in burnout prevention.
I can help you get off that burnout treadmill because I have been there myself, experienced burnout myself and I have now figured out how to help others get off that burnout treadmill in much less time than 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 and what keeps you from moving forward.

What My Clients Say
In Gordana's lifestyle makeover program I learned so much about myself, my body and about nutrition. I like the fact that this is not a diet program and I never had to be hungry AT ALL! Gordana has a great way to motivate people which helped me through tough times. What amazes me is how much my body responds to my new lifestyle. I sleep better, I have more energy and I dropped two dress sizes! I feel so energised like I haven’t felt like this for a long long time. Being in a group program allowed me to share my experiences with other, like-minded people which definitely helped to stay on track. Thank you Gordana for making me last to the very end.
Rise To Health Coaching's lifestyle makeover program is amazing! I have not only released over 10 kg in this short time, I also burned body fat and doubled my energy. My life has changed completely and I now shop and eat more mindfully. And I can finally fit into that lovely dress again! The support given by Gordana was extraordinary. I’m so happy with the way I look and feel, and I can highly recommend working with Gordana if you want real and lasting results.
I can’t believe I lasted all the way to the end of the program. 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 program 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 program to my colleagues, family and friends.
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.
