I believe that everybody already has the resources that they need to change, improve, grow, and reach their full potential. In this way, I guide you to realize yourself. My work is about empowerment and self-realization, independence, autonomy more than anything - without the BS.
The PERMA Model of Well-being by Martin Seligman
After several years in journalism for different media in Germany I moved to the UK and studied psychology and worked in research in academia and the NHS (National Health Service in the UK). I trained to become a psychotherapist and in 2012 followed my dream to open my own therapy center which I have now passed on to another colleague and which is still thriving today. This background means that I am always on the lookout for new research-based methods for learning, thriving and personal and professional growth and success. In short, empower you to flourish. My work is informed by Positive Psychology (I am a member of the International Positive Psychology Network), Transactional Analysis and my training in Creativity Coaching as well as my work in the field of psychology. You will not find any mumbo jumbo or corporate lingo but instead a creative, authentic and genuine coaching relationship. You can see my professional memberships in the footer of this website together with my ethics statement.
In my spare time I take my two dogs on long walks and adventures to new places, read a lot of books, connect with friends, meditate, practice yoga and pilates. It is impossible to separate my work from my life. Both nurture each other in perfect harmony.
Statement of Ethical Practice I conduct myself personally and professionally according to the highest standards of honesty and integrity and always hold the best interests of my clients as paramount and in strict confidence. I continuously strive for excellence in our coaching relationship and do not more outside the limits of my knowledge and expertise. I am a member of the International Coach Federation and abide by theirCode of Ethics.
