My coaching and counseling work has therapeutic background, so you are welcome to work with me on any issue in your life. Through my qualifications and life experience, here are a some themes I am additionally specialized on, that maybe resonate directly with your situtation:
TRUE ROOTS OF A HAPPY LIFE
SELF-COMPASSION & SELF-LOVE
We all need to learn genuine self-love and self-compassion, as this is not something we learn anywhere in our lives. The whole society today supports human functioning that is organized around the outer values and achievments. This is why we so often think that the source of our happines or unhappiness is outside of us. On top of it, most of us have an internalized inner critic, that is hard on us the whole day long. The way out of that negative spiral is self-compassion and self-love. It is a basis of any development. As Tara Brach wisely says: "Whatever we don't embrace with love, imprisons us."
SESSION FORMATS that might be good for awakening your heart towards more self-love are: life coaching and counseling, mindfulness and self-compassion, sessions in nature (as nature supports emerging of our lovable essential self). Also the special format "Dancing with Demons" supports in facing the unloving monster that keeps chasing us. Energy work sessions help in rooting your self-love into your energetic core.

LIVING YOUR SOUL PURPOSE
YOUR MISSION - YOUR SOUL BUSINESS
Uncovering our soul purpose gives us immense joy and deep satisfaction. Suddenly everything makes sense - our life story, the tasks on the way, our talents, our choices and challenges etc. We begin to understand ourselves on a deep level, on a soul level. And even more fulfillment arises once we are ready to ground this purpose into the mission of our life, when we make it our vocation and dare to develop our soul business. Then the business does not have the task to only provide money, but much more - to be in service to the world and helps our soul's realization in this life.
SESSION FORMATS that could be most helpful in developing your soul business are: Soul Business sessions, life coaching and counseling, mindfulness to get in deeper touch with yourself and Authentic Design for giving a shape to your business from the inside out. You can also take part in the workshop "Trust Your Inner Gold". If you want a little inspiration, read my personal story about developing my soul business.
HELP FOR HEALING FROM CHRONIC FATIGUE, BURNOUT AND OTHER CHRONIC ILLNESSES
SUPPORT FOR HEALING CHRONIC FATIGUE (CFS/ME)
I have a deep understanding and empathy for the helpless and desperate state of chronic physical suffering. After having chronic fatigue syndrom (CFS) for years, I have finally managed to heal myself by solving the puzzle of various influences. I haven't found good medical support as this disease has not been researched enough and is considered incurable. So I went on my healing path all by myself and discovered a variety of resources that support body, mind and spirit in healing CFS/ME. By now I have gained a lot of experience and practical and theoretical knowledge that I would be glad to pass on.
SESSION FORMATS that can help you in finding your lost inner balance are: sessions in nature, life coaching and counseling, mindfulness and compassion and energy work. I have developed a special workshop format "Forest Healing" for those with chronic illness, where we practice to come back into the "healing state" - as the word says, it is a "state of being" and not of doing.
THE BIG TRANSFORMATION
DEATH AND GRIEF - A NEW MEANING OF LIFE
Are you having hard time facing death of a beloved one, that happened or will happen? Or maybe your own death? It is just normal. Most of our world nowadays lives completely cut off from the simple truth of life, that we all have to die one day. We don't even feel how surpressing this fact makes us fearfull and unhappy. In a society today, death is not any more a part of life - while on a natural level it is. Facing death was in my life and in lives of many people I know, the most powerful transformation. It gave my whole life more peace, more love and a deeper meaning.
SESSION FORMATS that can help working through the themes around death and grief are: mindfulness and self-compassion, life coaching and counseling and Dancing with Demons. A wonderful support and inspiration are sessions in nature, because there we can find all the elements of flow of life and its impermanence.
BACK TO THE SOURCE
After many years of meditation and inner work, the universe gave me an insight into the state of consciousness beyond our ego, which lasted several days and which I call "the essence". Although I came back to the functioning ego-personality afterwards, the state of oneness has remained in the background. Guided by my own experiences and tools from various sources, I offer support not only with personal problems, but also for your meditation practice and spiritual orientation. I also use tantric techniques of Buddhist energy work and work on different levels of the aura: chakra, hara and essence level.
The shadow is a psychological term for the parts of us that we are not aware of, that we can’t see in ourselves. We have a dark shadow of our negativities, that we don't like to acknowledge, but we also have a white shadow - our talents that we are not aware of and that we don't use. If we want to transform from egoic self (based on outer mask and fear) towards a soulful quality of our fearless heart, we must go through the shadow land. Embracing the shadow is a challenging but rewarding process: it brings us self-acceptance and freedom, and thus possibility for change and new choices.
SESSION FORMATS that are especially useful for the shadow work are: a session format Dancing with Demons, life coaching and counseling, mindfulness and compassion. Working on your Self-Love is a good support for facing the shadow. The workshop "Dancing with Demons" is a great chance to be witnessed and to witness others in their shadow dance.
