Coaching & Consulting

As our awareness grows, so do we. When we are trying to see the world differently, new perspectives open up. Choosing them resonantly creates different and better results, new learning, growth and connection. Be curious and courageous!


Ways to grow


Working on your strengths and weaknesses to maximise your potential

Are you looking for change, a different perspective, or do you have important goals to reach? My focus is on helping you to go from where you are, to where you are seeing yourself or where you see your business.


Breaking the habit – Exploring the change – Turning into a winner

Sometimes we repeatedly do the same actions expecting different results. Let’s find together the source for such behaviours and use new methods to change. My support will help you explore new pathways to navigate to success.


Knowledge is knowing what to say, wisdom is knowing when to say it     

My passion will be to listen to you and inspire you with new ideas and different perspectives and encourage you into trying and succeeding with new actions to foster your career advancement.

About Me

When working with a professional coach a few things help. A proper professional education as a coach through an ICF registered company, life, and business experience.With me, you get all three. I worked 25 years in the financial industry with regional and global responsibilities for international top tier institutions in the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, and Denmark. I have lead teams, sat on leadership teams, been in committees to promote Managing Directors and Directors. In a strongly performance and result driven environment I could make use of all aspects of coaching and leading. Twice in my career I willingly started from scratch as an entrepreneur to follow my dreams and purposes, breaking with financial security to explore the unknown. I am here to support your plan and actions, so you can succeed too. With the Co-Active Training Institute, I chose one of the first and oldest firms to train over two years to become a registered, certified professional coach, meanwhile for 6 years. And even now I haven’t rested to educate myself on the newest topics of coaching and consulting in service to my clients.

Finally, with 56 years of age, having lived abroad in 4 countries for over 20 years I throw in a good bit of life experience.
