„What we nurture in ourselves will grow-
that is nature's eternal law.“

(J.W. von Goethe)


Traveling and living abroad has greatly influenced my life.
Especially studying psychology at the University of Baltimore had a great affect on my view of people and the world. After 7 years in the US and half a year in Moscow, I settled back in Vienna in 2002. For five years I was part of an international project regarding solar systems in Iran.

My experience working with people of different cultures has shown me, that there is something very unique in each and every one of us.
It is exactly this unique potential that needs to be discovered and developed. This realization took me back to my true passion – the love for psychology.

A lot of people have given me great input that enabled
me to change my perspective on difficult situations and,
ultimately, on my life. I am speaking here of moments
when some pieces of the big puzzle simply fell in place
and widened my perspective. These experiences made
my life very rich, and I am very grateful for it.

Tabuthema – Schwangerschaftsabbruch.
Was zurückbleibt ist die Seele.

Was wäre wenn ...?

Die Beratung einer ungewollten Schwangerschaft endet oftmals in der Klinik, in der sie abgebrochen wird. Manche Frauen fühlen einfach nur Erleichterung „danach“. Bei anderen Frauen bleibt ein Stück Seele zurück, das sich über Jahre als innere Stimme immer wieder meldet.

Wo ist mein Platz?
Raum für den Austausch der Erfahrung und Verständnis für die Emotionen wie Schmerz, Wut, Trauer, Scham, Schuld fehlen
völlig. Schließlich hat sich Frau dafür entschlossen und wenn
sie „es“ nicht bekommen hat und damit nicht fertig wird,
dann ist das ihr Bier.

Wird das abgetriebene Kind rückblickend in die
Lebensgeschichte der Frau eingebettet, so findet die
Entscheidung ihren Platz und es verstummen die
quälenden Stimmen wie „was, wäre wenn“,
„Ich fühle mich schuldig“ uvm.

Austausch und Aufarbeitung;
weitere Termine auf Anfrage.
Zeit: 9 h – 18 h

I dedicate my full attention to people and their efforts to strive towards a happy and content life. What is it that moves, touches or worries you? What is hard for you to deal with and what do you handle with ease? Each of us has his/her own way of seeking happiness. It is fascinating to see what individual approaches we all take to find happiness and why we sometimes fail in our attempts.

Brain research studies have proven what many of us have known for a long time: body and mind interact inseparably. The decision as to whether a situation is perceived as burdening or not is made in the frontal lobe of the brain. Here emotions are consciously perceived and can be analyzed and experienced in the body. We hence
may choose which issues to focus on. Most importantly, we
have a choice and we can consciously decide what gives
meaning to our world and our lives.

The pursuit of happiness and satisfaction is deeply
rooted in all human beings.
A happy and satisfied life -
isn't that what we all dream of? We are equipped with
the adequate tools that enable us to lead a fulfilled
life - our body, our mind and our emotions.
Do you we consciously use them?

The development of potentials is the central
focus in Entwicklungsraum coaching.
This holistic
approach is based on the principles of
salutogenesis and system theory. It enables
your personal, deeply rooted knowledge to
permanently find expression in your life.
