I was born and raised in Germany but at 19 I moved to the UK to study for my degree in European Business. In addition, I lived in France and Italy, returned to Germany, moved altogether 19 times, and eventually settled in London, where I lived for eight years until I once again moved back to Germany once again for a job opportunity in 2015. I primarily worked in event management, as Head of Meetings at an association, then Team Lead, and finally as Account Director at an events agency. I love organisation and communication, and successfully managing events for up to 1,500 people certainly provided me with a lot of job satisfaction!
Why I became a life coach
I've had the opportunity to work with three coaches so far. I experienced first hand how things shifted rapidly with a little bit of external help. And this personal experience first gave me the impulse to consider getting into coaching. Ever since that first vague idea, I’ve been working towards this goal through attending coaching and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and positive psychology courses, as well as through gaining practical experiences.
When I progressed into a senior leadership role, coaching naturally became part of my job. I went from having just one assistant to managing a team of 15 people, and it became even clearer to me that working with people in this way is something I am good at and really enjoy.
Being able to support another individual in finding and following their path is incredibly rewarding. It is amazing and fulfilling to witness how new ideas form, sudden revelations erupt, and sometimes just a subtle shift in thinking leads to more happiness.
I BELIEVE THAT
... we all have the answers to our questions already within us.
... we often hold onto old beliefs that no longer serve a purpose.
... we are never too old to change.
... we should never stop growing.
... we sometimes need to remind ourselves about the resources we have.
... asking for help is a strength, not a weakness.
... life is easy and fun and it’s just our ego that gets in the way at times.
