Holistic coaching

Breaking old patterns, changing unwanted habits, being present, being clear and making good choices, learning healthier postures in everyday life, relieving and avoiding physical pain, experiencing calm and relaxation. These are the most frequently experienced effects of the Alexander Technique, the core method of my holistic coaching with my clients.

How does holistic coaching work?

Holistic means exploring the process of investigating patterns, habits, postures, etc. That I coach holistically means incorporating mental and physical aspects. Very concrete techniques are taught that can be tried and deepened in everyday life between sessions without much effort, which allows for a very lasting effect. Many people also use the option of combining coaching with a relaxing and tension-relieving treatment on the couch.


I am a certified instructor of the German Association for Alexander Technique (ATVD) of this holistic method, whose core principle is for me both professional and passionate. In addition, I have a basic educational training (Bachelor’s of Special Education, Master’s of Social Work) with professional experience as a project coordinator, as well as the author of various professional articles. I’m currently also part-time as a lecturer at the Evangelical University of Applied Sciences Dresden.


I receive inquiries about both private and professional coaching, on a physical or personal level. We work on posture problems and resulting back pain or specific work on voice, posture, presence in appearance and contact, among other things.

Another core area of work is learning strategies that enable people to navigate more consciously through challenging or stressful situations at work and in everyday life by recognizing physical signals and thus being able to control their own reactions better and more consciously. Some people simply come out of curiosity, to explore themselves and discover new potentials in themselves.
