Welcome! My name is Eva Maria Hanson. I am a youth coach and trainer, a social entrepreneur, and the CEO of the NPO Ready for Life, an active young volunteer and a sporty woman. My mission in life is to support young people in their early adult years in navigating the challenges of everyday life amidst more consciously, kindly to themselves, and in harmony with their values.

I want to support you in achieving your goals.

How can I support you?

My story

I am 22 years old. Four years ago, I burned out due to an active lifestyle, perfectionism, and societal pressure, which led to severe depression. It took me nearly two years to recover from the depressive mood, apathy, inactivity, lack of interest, and suicidal thoughts.

I have always been a person with very high goals. It is important for me to do something that creates value in the world, but often this is not easy path.

Today, I am the CEO of the NGO Eluks Valmis, a social entrepreneur, youth trainer, and coach. I do what I love, I know how to balance work and rest, love myself unconditionally, I am my own best friend and supporter, and make my daily choices in line with my values and goals.

I am happy.

I empower you in finding clarity and direction amidst the maze of adult life

During 3-10 coaching sessions, we will work on your goals so that you achieve them within the desired time frame, solve any arising problems, and feel better than ever before.

What is a youth coaching session like?


We discuss what is important to you and formulate a goal to move towards


We only address the topics that you wish to discuss and in a way that is comfortable for you


In our conversation, only your opinion matters. The coach does not give judgment.

What is done during coaching sessions?


We establish cooperation agreements, sign a contract, and get acquainted.


We set a goal and create a plan how to achieve it, explore new aspects.


Using various tools, we find new solutions to reach the goal.


We solve any problems and obstacles that arise during the process.


We agree on the time of the next session and sometimes clarify homework instructions.



I offer coaching within the framework of the CATCH project.
