For 10 years, she interviewed, all over the world, extraordinary people who are changing the world in different areas, visionaries and social entrepreneurs, men of science and the arts, activists, pioneers and international authors in the field of personal transformation. (including great authors like Joe Dispenza, Gregg Braden, Bruce Lipton, Neale Donald Walsh, Masaru Emoto, Mark Williams, Barbara Fredrickson or Sir Ken Robinson). 


Ana Teresa Silva was also, for two years, a regular presence at SIC Mulher TV channel sharing new projects and people that are changing the world.

She just finished an international series of 12 documentaries, Roots and Fruits, which premiered on RTP2 on October 3, 2023, and which includes interviews from a Nobel Prize in Physics, or a Chef with 7 Michelin stars, to the grandson of Pablo Picasso or the son of Charlie Chaplin. This documentary series brings together the testimonies of 18 interviewees from around the world, with very different cultures, values and experiences, who are building a legacy in their area of expertise or who have inherited a legacy that is shared with Humanity.

What is the greatest legacy we can leave? And will this family legacy be an honor or a bondage from which we must free ourselves? From unconditional love to the deepest traumas, what factors define our identity? What is the weight of our choices in the path we have traced, as individuals and as a species? What really matters when we take stock of a life?


As a Life Coach, NLP Practitioner and PSYCH-K® Facilitator, Ana Teresa also has been empowering others to create the change they want to see in themselves and in their own lives.

In addition to obtaining the International Coaching and NeuroLinguistic Programming (NLP) Certification, she was part of the first group in Portugal to have advanced PSYCH-K® Certification, which Bruce Lipton, author of the bestseller "The Biology of Belief", considers a big step towards the new 21st century psychology.

Ana Teresa Silva also attended the Biodanza School of Portugal, Aura Reading Course, Energy Medicine, Authentic Leadership Course, Movement Analysis, International Training in Participative Leadership, among others.


Combining her different professional knowledge, she creates and facilitates courses, workshops and retreats in the field of human development and, in her writing, reflects the alchemy collected throughout the convergence of her multiple paths.
