I spent my 20s doing everything I could for a career in law: two state exams, a PhD from University of Münster, and an LL.M. from UCL. In my 30s, I had the career I had always dreamt of: I was working as a lawyer for a big firm in Berlin for almost 7 years. I was loving my job – and being fabulous at it: recognized by colleagues, clients, and competitors; ranked as a “Rising Star” for Media Law; on my way to becoming a partner.
All that came at a price: I know what stress is. I know what pressure is. And I know what a fast pace in life is. At times, I was overwhelmed – feeling that I had lost control over my life. I'm incredibly grateful for this time: I've learned so much from my amazing colleagues and clients. And I realized that I wanted to change something. In my life, inside myself.
I became fascinated by breathwork, mindfulness, and meditation – which helped me to step back into my power. I became more resilient to stress. I could work more calmly and effectively under pressure. I could allow and embrace my feelings. And I felt more at ease in life.
After some time, a strong calling arose to pass on my experience to others. At 37 I quit my job in the law world to embark on this journey. To share the power of the breath with you – and to support you on your own journey. With my background in law, I know how to listen closely, ask the right questions, and hold space for people in challenging situations.
I work with my clients in German and English.
