What is Life Coaching?
Unlike therapy, coaching does not delve into the past, but rather stays focused on the present and future. And unlike consulting, coaching does not advise, but rather empowers the client to access his or her own best answers from within. Coaching is based on the concept that each of us is on a unique path in life. By bringing more awareness and clarity of your true path, coaching offers you the means for being whole and living a life that reflects the real you.
Coaching is not just about reaching goals and dreams, although that is a big part of it. More fundamentally, the coaching relationship is about positively transforming the way you think, behave, interact and move through life that it is more conscious, purposeful and meaningful.It also about making the connection with your intrinsic worth as a human being and how your unique qualities can inspire, empower and transform others – thus making your unique mark in the world and positive impact on humanity.
If you have never worked with your own personal development or life coach before, you now have the chance to create one of the most life-changing and powerful relationships that you can ever have. I invite you to contact me for a complimentary session.
What are the benefits of working with me as your coach?
My aim for you is to create an authentic, holistic, meaningful and fulfilling life and inspire others to do the same!
Our coaching relationship involves a powerful and rewarding inner journey of self exploration and fundamental transformation.
We co-create a powerful partnership and work holistically to align your mind, body and spirit with your passion, purpose and potential.
You will learn to live, love and lead from an energized and empowered heart space.
When you create positive change for yourself, you inspire others to create positive change in their own lives, putting in motion a powerful universal ripple effect in the invisible, yet ever-present field of energy that connects us all.
A coaching relationship with me offers you the coaching space and support to:
- Feel better by looking inside yourself to find your own answers, especially if your confidence, self-esteem and motivation suffer.
- Rediscover your dreams, talents and greatest potential, especially when life may make you feel unfocused, unchallenged, demotivated or overwhelmed.
- Clear the clutter out of your physical and mental environment to see and appreciate your true self, especially if the support system of friends and family is not present.
- Act on your desires and express your truly unique creative potential, especially when you might have to learn how to recreate your authentic true self.
- Become CEO of your life by being 100% in control, responsible and accountable for fulfilling life, especially as you discover how your conscious life choices contribute to your own self-development and growth.
Once we get going in the process of aligning your energy and daily actions with your values, you will notice that your Higher Self is showing up – the best you in full form! Your energy vibration is positive and in flow. As a result, what you need and want will come to you more easily than “striving to achieve” it.
Life will start to flow more easily, more naturally, from an empowered space. You will feel more like YOU – the REAL YOU – you at your best and highest self.I am here to be your coach, mentor, guide, cheerleader and teacher – whatever you choose! Feel free to contact me for a complimentary session.
How Is Coaching Conducted?
Since I work with clients around the world, sessions are primarily by phone or skype in regularly scheduled weekly or biweekly sessions, lasting 30 or 60 minutes in length, depending on your preference. If you live near the Düsseldorf or Cologne region in Germany, in-person sessions can be arranged. Session times are flexible.
I choose to devote my time and energy exclusively to a select few clients at a time in order to work deeply and thoroughly with each individual. My clients and I usually work together for at least 3 months up to several years or more, forming a long-term bond and a broad and deep spectrum of learning that supports the client’s total well-being.
My job as your coach is to
- create a safe, confidential and trusting working relationship to support you
- listen to what motivates you
- ask powerful questions that lead you to insightful answers
- challenge you to fully believe in and own your talents and future
- empower you to think even bigger and bring out the absolute best within you.
Your job, as a coaching client, is to
- be open and honest with yourself and me
- trust in the synergistic power of our coaching partnership and the process of discovering your own best answers
- Take the actions that will lead to positive change and a more meaningful and fulfilling life
What most people really need at that point is a trustworthy partner who will hold them accountable for taking action and staying on track. Through this process, as your coach I will also introduce new perspectives, incorporate all the learning that is part of your personal development process and help you to naturally become the best person you want to be.
I love my work and it is my sincere hope that our coaching space will embody that love and inspiration. Please feel free to contact me for a complimentary coaching session.
What makes me different than other professional coaches?
As a published author, professionally certified life coach, certified Personal Branding DNA (TM) architect and experienced traveller, mother and wife, I have accumulated a wealth of experience, wisdom, perspective, insights and resources that I gladly share with my clients.
My own personal and spiritual journey has expanded over the years to include yoga, meditation, conscious eating and purposeful living, which are reflected in the holistic mind-body-soul approach I take in coaching my clients.
Clients come to me because I relate well with what they are experiencing and intuitively ‘get’ who they are and where they are with their lives.
I originally founded my coaching practice, previously called Global Citizen Coaching, in 2004 as a way to offer personal support, guidance and coaching to readers of my first book (The Global Citizen: A Guide to Creating an International Life and Career). Since then, I have worked with global women worldwide and provide a unique level of understanding, guidance, support and encouragement. I am fortunate to love what I do and be able to pass that on to others.
If you would like support in creating a meaningful and fulfilling international life and career, I warmly invite you to contact me for a complimentary coaching session.

I enjoy working with global-oriented, motivated individuals who are committed to personal, spiritual and professional development and the coaching process.
My coaching practice is unique in the fact that most clients see themselves as global citizens. Many have lived, studied, worked or travelled outside their home countries, may come from multicultural families and see themselves not only from being from one country, but also belonging to a larger, interconnected global community.
All of my clients want to make the most out of their time on this planet by leading meaningful, fulfilling and inspiring lives by ultimately becoming role models, leaders and change-makers. If this sounds like you, I invite you to connect with me for a complimentary coaching session.
What is the Most Important Point to Consider When Deciding on a Coach?
How much do I need to invest?
Fees among coaches vary widely. Learning to live your absolute best life consistently over time requires a commitment to the coaching process, and as such, many coaches base their fees on a monthly or quarterly basis. As I am committed to my clients’ success, I work closely with clients to design the right coaching package based on my clients’ needs and budgets.
