I follow the principles and ethics of the International Coach Federation ICF.


My roots lie in producing music and in musical theatre – still a great passion of mine. Over the years, I have built up a reputation for transforming creative visions into concrete, full-proof successes. Through our work together, I see myself as your supporting partner, appreciating your skills, your personality and your ideas, and so letting you flourish.

Throughout my 15 years in the management team of the Tonhalle Duesseldorf, I expanded my experience from the artistic field to corporate strategy and leadership. My training as an Integral Systemic (Business) Coach extends and deepens this aspect of my work.
