ABOUT ME

Coaching – Therapy – Spirituality

… and what makes me tick

I enjoy supporting and inspiring a wide variety of people in their development, their search, their processes of change and healing. In my first studies I focused on a training in client-centered interviewing.

Openness for what people can be about longings and resources, sense for the healing life force and wisdom in all of us

A broad horizon for life, what is possible in a human life in terms of experience, suffering and healing.

A wide range of professional activities in different branches. Many years of experience as a hospital and clinic chaplain and as a teacher of visual arts for children, adolescents and adults.

Versatile creativity, openness and joy of discovery, to go new ways, artist

A deep, trans-religious spirituality and connection with nature, with the creative force – in the stream of the formless creative, from which everything becomes, the life force, which is development into something new, mystic.

Silence is my home, it is the place where i come from. Silence is the place where emptiness is everything at the same time. Only silence enables listening, compassion, togetherness, understanding, peace, actually: life. Ultimately, I see my work as a contribution to peace.

 „And my soul spread its wings wide, flew through the silent lands as if it were flying home.” Joseph von Eichendorff

 “On this side I am not at all comprehensible. For I dwell just as well with the dead as with the unborn. A little closer to the heart of creation than usual. And still not nearly close enough.”
Paul Klee

Thinking, reflection and science are important to me and a beautiful art. During my studies, I had explored the possibilities of thinking skills with joy and intensity. When I had to choose between an academic path, studying art or music, I chose art, the creative, visual arts. Instead of repeating what I already knew, I was interested in continuing the path I had begun with other abilities that were equally inherent in me. This path led me deeply into art and music, and further into spirituality and therapeutic work.
