My work is based on Creativity, Embodiment and Mindfulness, offering you a clear and warm-hearted support through challenging life situations and transitions, like midlife, separation and new beginnings.
My life and work is inspired by my love for creativity, meditation and exploration.
I left Germany when I was young and Iived abroad for nearly 30 years- discovering various ways of living in different european countries. These opportunities taught me over and over again to find home in myself and to widen my perspective on life.
Since 2016 I have been living with my daughter in Berlin.
My approach is using the immediate embodied experience and creative tools to meet and explore whatever arises with respect and compassionate presence.
Body knowledge reveals deep insights into complex connections – old belief systems and ideas about ourselves become visible. Establishing an intimate contact with your body and mind helps you to develop a direct, authentic connection with yourself and others and to meet life with more ease and joy.
Sometimes we have no words for our feelings and suffering and there are moments when our inner experience can be expressed more easily through creative methods like colors, materials, movement and music.
Complex connections become visible, the perspective expands and new possibilities for action are opening up. The lived experiences during this process can then be transferred into everyday life.
Through Mindfulness and Self-Compassion you become aware of your needs and to learn to give yourself what you are deeply longing for.
