A combination of international business and therapeutic coaching methods

I have successfully specialized in combining methods from the fields of international business and therapeutic coaching.

In addition to a Bachelor in International Business, I have many years of experience in international event management, project management, strategy development, conflict management and marketing.

Through numerous training courses with various internationally renowned teachers, I have also specialised in personal development, conscious business leadership, the teachings of the Enneagram and systemic constellations, among other things.

As a conference interpreter, I have accompanied further countless training courses of well-known trainers, thus proving time and again my quick and strong communication skills. 

My career has combined those areas from the beginning and thus, I have more than two decades of professional and personal experience.

Mary Poppins and her magic bag

Through my continuous further training and development, my toolbox is growing constantly. It contains a collection of different techniques, methods, approaches and experiences that I combine intuitively in different ways according to what is needed.

I have deliberately chosen not to list the individual elements here. In my experience, it is of advantage for my clients to be able engage in a new and unbiased way.

Since graduating from high school, I have mainly lived and worked abroad. Native German, fluent English at interpreter level, fluent French and work experience in various countries such as the UK, USA, Australia, India, France, and of course Germany, are part of my portfolio. I have been living and working in Germany for several years now.

Initiator and companion - guidance from within

As a result, my coaching and faciliating is not a theoretic lecture nor the application of concepts to your situation, but instead is based on interaction and experience.

As a coach and faciliation mentor, I see myself as an initiator and companion on the path that supports the moment of development and enables change and growth.

From the blind spots to the solution - new perspectives open up

In my coaching and Faciliating mentoring I offer you the opportunity to turn towards the blind spots of your professional challenges; that means looking at what you may not have looked at before.

In this way, we can bring to light the deeper, hidden, troublesome dynamics and dissolve them.

Afterwards, the solutions for your challenges present themselves almost automatically. They come from within, from yourself, your project or your company. And therefore, they are not a foreign concept to be applied, but are adequate and fruitful for the healthy change and sustainable success of the project or company.

In Alignment

I love helping clients create successful high participant contribution and engagement events, increase overall initiative, build strong and resource-full communities and company identity, create collective synergy whilst enhancing the creativity, joy and initiative of the individual.

Through many years of co-ordinating Open Space Festivals and Workshops I specialise in creating the right mix of safety and impulse.

I am highly skilled in "on the spot" and structured program management: adept at managing open programs spontaneously while also implementing highly structured program management when required.

Embedded in a strong network of experienced professionals who I enjoy collaborating with, I can provide individually tailored, comprehensive solutions.


For businesses and organisations:

Strategically, analytically and with sensitivity I support companies in change processes, conscious business leadership and further development of processes at management and team level. I always keep an eye on the company’s DNA.

From Potential to Powerhouse

My favourite quote and my inspiration:

“Where would we get to if everyone said where we would we get to, and no one went to find out where we would get to if we went.”
