I am always intrigued by the imagination of what abundance lies in each person. Without exception, everybody carries precious unique gifts. Most people only live a friction of their potential. Being curious about each other's full potential can open inner doors.
I am aware that coaching settings themselves can create power hierarchies and disempowering patterns in a hidden way, and I try my best to circumvent such patterns. I invite equity that brings the humbleness, respect for everyone's life experiences, and that is a space of self-responsibiliy and agency for the coachee.

Marshall Rosenberg developed this approach in order to build trust and cooperation in relationships rather than distrust, conflict, hate.

The approach spread all around the world and has also been applied in war zones.
Passionate about the environment and social justice since childhood, I had decided to study environmental sciences and politics at the Leuphana University in Lüneburg, a small town close to Hamburg.
