Coaching means getting focused and recognizing the next step you need in life. With me as your counterpart you can find clarity, becoming stronger and freer.
Coaching can help to address personal or job-related challenges in a positive and productive manner, give life a new direction, or find solutions to issues that you want to let go. No matter the goal, a decision for coaching is always a decision to shape your own life more consciously!
My Coaching Services
You want to know what coaching with me is like?
I am pleased that people from different industries and a wide range of ages place their trust in me.
To give you a first impression of how coaching works with me, you can read here what my clients say:
Michael K. (42 years old), CEO IT Company, Leipzig
No matter what topic I came to Katja with, she always listened very carefully without judging me. The work with her was always a game changer, both privately and professionally. On the way to myself, which I am still heading for, she always puts me back on the right path. After our sessions I always feel better even in difficult times and they help me to refocus on what I really want. Her experiences and emotional maturity are remarkable.
Claudia N. (42 y.), manager Fraunhofer Institute, Leipzig
The coaching came at exactly at the right time for me. I was in the process of a professional change to a management position. With Katja as a coach, I was able to experience very new impulses to reflect as I was not used to up to that moment.
We worked through issues and challenges occurring at work. This helped me to understand the origin of certain behaviors of mine. Katja manages to create a very safe atmosphere in which it is possible to even deal with supposedly “difficult” topics.
After each appointment, I always took new insights with me. I was able to successfully integrate them instantly into my professional and private everyday life.
Even so I had already used some elements beforehand, I can now realy name them, which opens up completely new doors for me.
Katja’s coaching approach is really a good support, which leads from professional coaching to deeper personal insights. This also helps me perfectly in my private life.
solutions right away
Anne D. (28 y.), PhD Student, Texas A&M University (USA)
When I first started coaching with Katja, she really listened, without any judgement and offered actionable solutions right in the first session – which I still use today. As a result of working with Katja, I could recognize and break through old thought and behavior patterns and I became a lot more compassionate with myself. I am softer now, more resilient, and even curbed emotional eating.
I learned to realize who I am, what I need, and how strong I can be (but don’t have to be) through coaching sessions with her.
When I moved abroad for a job, I was overwhelmed with the demands of my new life and the loss of family and friends. It felt like drowning. Katja was the one that helped me to keep me afloat and strategically set myself up for success again.
If you really want to bring some meaningful change into your life, I 100% recommend coaching with Katja. She guided me through hard times with unwavering steadiness and trust that is built on her own experiences and compassion as a wonderful human being.
I am ALLOWED to explore my life with her, question it, live it the way I want, without restrictions or the baggage of old patterns. Seeing and engaging the world in these new ways has opened doors and opportunities for me that I never thought existed.
beyond my imagination
Nara R. (33 y.), artist, Brazil – Portugal
Katja helped me reaching out for new opportunities that I didn’t imagine to achieve. We met trough a friend while I was trying to find a way to finance an art residency, so we developed a portfolio with products and a text to present myself and my work. Reflecting my skills and competences with her gave me even more confidence to apply for other open calls, like the master in Fine Art. That is what I’m now studying in Porto University, at Portugal.
Anika K (26 y.), Program Manager Clean Heating Transition, Rhode Island (USA)
I have always been a bit skeptical of life coaching, since I had the misperception that it was too unstructured and focused too much on the influence of emotion in making big life decisions. Katja showed me that this is not the case. She used clear and helpful tools to help me reconsider my perspective on things and focus on what matters to me.
I had coaching sessions with her at a moment in my life that I didn’t realize was going to be very pivotal for my young career. Just before, and in the midst of, a big transition, Katja’s sessions helped me focus on certain attitudes of mine that were holding me back and shift my perspective. This helped me be open to new opportunities and pathways in my life. Katja’s wonderfull coaching room was the perfect backdrop for reflection and growth. She creates a very serene and warm environment, where I really felt able to take a step back from the outside world and focus on personal things I wanted to examine.
The tools and techniques Katja uses helped bring structure to my thoughts, and her methods helped open my mind to new possibilities, ways of reflecting on my experiences and wants for the future.
Antonio P. (54 y.), artist, Italy – Leipzig
Katja challenged and guided me to focus on my inner core again. That was very decisive for me and the basis for taking further practical steps to realize my pictures. I was able to feel purpose, the sense of reality, orient myself and develop my artistic activities in a positive way.
All this is now reflected in my art. Thank you, Katja!
very good listener
Sabine D. (60 y.), Area Manager Media Markt
The discussions with Katja were always very constructive. She is a good listener and tries to open your mind to different perspectives of your concerns. She doesn’t try to impose her opinion on you, instead, you should find the right solution for you yourself.
In numerous consultations we were able to reach the right result for me.
I always had the feeling that it was about me and my concerns. Regardless of whether it was about a new job, or exit negotiations in an existing job. She made me aware of my strengths and raised me up and supported me in my new projects and also mentally steered me in new directions.
Overall, I was very satisfied and can only recommend Katja to everyone.
What do I actually want?
Patrick H. (45 y.), Head of Finances, Biotec Company, Leipzig
In my mid-40s, halfway through my working life, I suddenly started asking myself all sorts of questions: How to proceed now? Should I try something new again or am I satisfied with what I have? What can I do and what do others appreciate about me? Will I regret later on if I don’t listen to my heart? And why am I asking myself these questions now?
Of course you talk about these topics in the family or among friends, but you regularly lack the distance. I met Katja incidentally and she offered me to sort my questions and, in particular look at the different topics from different perspectives. At first, I thought that Katja would answer all my questions. I quickly understood that this is not the case. With a very structured and methodical approach, she made it possible for me to find the answers myself during the conversation and, surprisingly, afterwards too.
Now, after 15 years, I changed my job and am in charge of a department in a mid-sized company. And most importantly – I will never have to regret not having done it, also thanks to Katja.
Lydia T. (32 y.), Occupational Therapist, Leipzig
With the help of Katja and her objective perspective from the outside, I can break down old thought patterns and behaviors and relearn them in a goal-oriented manner. Step by step we were able to analyze and work though my basic problem. It was very important for me to take home strategies for everyday life, so that I could work on my own in the long term. I was given very valuable “tools” and I always had the opportunity to ask for advice if I was unsure.
The coaching with Katja helped me to take on new perspectives and to recognize where my options for action are.
In summary, I felt constantly safe and taken care of. The coaching always took place in a very pleasant atmosphere, which kept the feel-good factor constantly high.
I’m very grateful for the sessions and what I’ve been able to take away with me up to this point.
A very valuable address!
