Coaching in Berlin

As a Life and Business Coach, I accompany you when you feel the need for new personal perspectives and growth, for professional or private change.


I support you in finding your own personal, salutary and resource-activating way of dealing with stress, overload, the threat of burn-out or bore-out, with inner or conflicts in your private or professional environment, with crisis situations or a lack of self-esteem, existential and fears about the future. In doing so, I follow a Buddhist approach which, through its attitude and methods, particularly trains one's own awareness and ability for self-reflection.

The 4 aspects of my coaching

Conceptually, my work is based on these aspects:

  1. development of inner strength
  2. development of happiness in life and confidence
  3. development of mindfulness towards oneself and one's environment
  4. salutary handling of one's own “self-centredness”


These four aspects are not to be understood as self-contained coaching packages. In my opinion, a “one size fits all” approach has no place in personality development. After all, it is about you in all your naturalness and diversity. In our coaching sessions, you are therefore given the space you deserve for self-development. You can thus gain vitality, life force and ultimately quality of life. I offer you a process in which you, as the expert of your life, determine the topic, the pace and the rhythm. It is the “here and now” that counts!

1. Development of inner strength

Perhaps you have heard the terms “resilience” or “ego strength” for this. This is connected to the question of how we as individuals deal with challenging situations or circumstances. Do we quickly become discouraged, give up, back down, push back and doubt ourselves, or do we pursue our goal even in difficult moments, keep our heads up and make good decisions for ourselves and others?


Often we look for the answers to such questions in the outside world, in other people, which usually does not fully satisfy us. However, if we turn to ourselves, we have a great chances to find what we are looking for.

How to strengthen your inner being

  • development of inner peace and the ability to relax
  • salutary handling of one's own feelings and emotions
  • development of coping strategies for stress and inner and outer conflicts
  • transformation of destructive, often hidden beliefs and convictions
  • development of compassion and acceptance for oneself and for others

2. Development of happiness in life and confidence

Many of us ask ourselves at some point what we want from life. This question is, of course, entirely justified, as it aims to bring out our innermost desires. On the other hand, it bears the danger that we live our lives in a certain passivity. This, in turn, can lead to disappointment, frustration and even life fatigue if the desired does not happen.


Therefore, we should rather ask ourselves what we can give to life. With this active inner attitude, we set ourselves on a journey to our real needs, our inner values and priorities, our strengths and supposed weaknesses. Buddha urged people to “be an island to oneself”, i.e. to find out as much as possible who one is. In the best case, this path leads to inner balance and serenity. Swimming with the river of life instead of fighting against the current. To be at peace with oneself as much as possible. This will be the basis for being truly there for others.


How to develop more happiness in life and confidence

  • developing clarity about one's own needs, values and (current) priorities (Where do I stand? Where do I want to go? What is important to me? What makes me happy? What causes me fear or worry?...)
  • development of a current life picture (work-life balance, professional development, interpersonal relationships...)
  • salutary handling with existing issues (personal upheavals, illness, age(ing), grief...)
  • development of equanimity, serenity and gratitude towards oneself and others


“Personal growth means: more awareness, more behavioural options, more ego strength, more permeability.”

C.G. Jung

3. Development of mindfulness towards oneself and one's environment

I will say that you are familiar with the term “mindfulness”. In recent decades, this attitude to life has taken root in our minds. Thich Nhat Hanh emphasised that practising mindfulness means returning to life in the present moment.


For me, mindfulness means to become more aware of one's life, to better understand what is going on. Getting to know your body and mind better. To recognise one's real needs. To use one's own resources in a salutary way. To assess situations better. To make good decisions for oneself and others. To shape one's interpersonal relationships in a fulfilling way.


This cultivates one's own well-being, which in turn feeds inner strength, happiness in life and confidence.

How mindfulness can help you

  • salutary access to body and mind in order to feel oneself better, to accept oneself and to be able to shape one's own reality more consciously
  • recognising and transforming inner evaluation concepts, which leads to more inner peace and reduces the subjective feeling of stress.
  • You learn to listen more to your inner voice.
  • Through attentive and concentrated observation of your thoughts and actions you can develop more inner balance because you reduce negativity and cultivate positivity.
  • You gain discernment and create more alternative courses of action. This strengthens the variety of your experiences and your vitality.
  • You can develop happier relationships because you communicate more mindfully.

4. Salutary handling of one's own “self-centredness”

Buddhism also speaks of “ego-centricity”. This refers to the constant circling around oneself and the associated permanent focus on wanting or desiring something (at all costs) or not wanting something, i.e. inner resistance to something. This leads to suffering because our needs are not met.


Don't worry, I don't want to convert you to give up your “I”. Rather, it is about developing more “permeability”. Experiencing yourself, especially in difficult situations, not as a rigid, petrified being, but as part of a large network of relationships that every person influences at every moment with their thoughts, emotions and actions. In other words, to keep an eye on the big picture, so to speak, and to align one's behaviour more flexibly. If you will, to relativise one's own greatness to a certain extent. To accept one's own fallibility as something normal. This can lead to more inner strength.


How being less “me-centred” can benefit you

  • You create more harmonious and happier relationships for yourself and others.
  • You feel more in the flow of life because you can react more flexibly to situations and people. Less (inner) resistance means more quality of life.
  • You suffer less in conflict situations yourselves.
  • You develop your ability to compromise and thus your ability to communicate.
  • You are more open to new, enriching experiences. This makes your life more interesting.


If you feel the need for new personal perspectives and growth, you feel the desire for professional or private change, I would love to accompany you on this journey.
