Nico Veressen

After a 15 year long career as a professional fighter (5 x Belgian, Benelux, European and vice World Champion Muay Thai) and 2 years as an assistant professor Research Methodology in Psychology at the Free University of Brussels, Nico worked as a psychophysical performance coach and relaxation therapist. Initially, he helped people with evidence-based psychological counseling and hypnosis to improve their performance, prevent or overcome burnout / overtraining. In this work, Nico found that one of the biggest stressors in the lives of executives and entrepreneurs could be found in their personal life. In this way, his work started to move in the direction of relationship and intimacy coaching for exceptional people.

After 2 years,  he got offered a position as the head coach of a professional Mixed Martial Arts gym in Bali. But after a successful year (Prepared Tiffany van Soest and helped Aleide Lawant for their world titles), it became clear that his old passion didn’t fulfill him anymore. 

So he founded The Authentic Desire to help exceptional couples, women, and men to get sensational sex, monumental love and make more money.
