Coaching & Counseling Practice

Are you living in Bavaria and German is not your native language?

Are you facing challenges in your life or relationships that feel like just too much and are you looking for an experienced professional to talk to?

Are you working as a teacher looking for someone who is an educational psychologist and offers case reviews?

About Me

After graduating with a diploma in educational science and psychology in 1988 I completed a 3 years training program in client-centred counseling, psychotherapy and applications of the Person Centred Approach (C. Rogers) at the PCA Institute in London, UK.
I regularly attend international conferences and encounter groups in order to improve my own professional skills.

In 2014 I completed a training as a life coach at the Reinhold Miller Institute, Heidelberg.

I have professional experience in psychological counseling of adolescents, adults and families for 25 years of which at least 20 years at different school types and about 5 years practical experience in life coaching.

My professional attitude is empathic, non-judgemental and open to all issues that are of importance to my clients.

Coaching or


Both approaches are meant to offer you support to find ways of coping with whatever challenges in life – whether it be in personal relationships, family, school/university or professional life.

Coaching is the choice when you are struggling with or suffering from a concrete difficult situation or problem and you are seeking clarity and solutions.

Coaching for teachers means to discuss a case of a student and develop new ways, strategies or steps to deal with a difficult situation or relationship.

Counseling, though, deals with situations that may cause dysfunction in your psychological and emotional life which can lead to loss of energy, joy and resilience.

Sometimes the line between both approaches is and needs to be fluid.
During our introductory session we can figure out what is best for you.
