Development Consulting Coaching


Explore and Enrich Life Together

As a nature-loving, cosmopolitan and sports enthusiast, I have always been fascinated by the possibilities of how people can positively support and promote their quality of life and performance as easily and effectively as possible, even in challenging situations and phases of life, using their own strength and natural resources.

I support people in finding their own self-guided ways for accessing their personal competences and resources, as well as strengthening them, so that they can use them powerfully and meaningfully to achieve their goals and master any challenges.

Tried-and-tested and scientifically based approaches are developed in a tailor-made manner to deal with what is important to my clients.
In particular, the concepts of hypnosystemic work by Gunther Schmidt, embodiment and positive psychology as well as other proven state-of-the-art concepts and methods are used.

The key is to always respect and consider the person as a whole and in interaction with the immediate world around them in order to develop and successfully implement a target-oriented approach.

My personal core values of fairness, professionalism, quality, transparency and confidentiality as well as the professional ethical guidelines of the BDP ( shape the framework and path for the working relationship with my clients and this of course continues beyond any counselling period.
