Frequently Asked Questions.
Can you please describe your coaching in a nutshell?
My coaching style is a deep methodology that incorporates traumasensitive breathwork, embodiment practices, meditation and visualization exercises as well as talk coaching.
Do you only coach in English?
No, I also coach in German. Which is actually my mother tongue.
How do I know if my institution is able to fund my coaching?
Go and ask your program coordinator, managing director or supervisor! 🙂
Usually, every publicly funded research project has a specific budget for the promotion of equal opportunities and excellence in education and research systems, especially related to gender equality and balancing a scientific career with family commitments.
I collaborate with many academic institutions such as: post graduate programs, schools, and international collaborative research centers.
The administration of the funding is usually quite easy, especially for DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) funded research projects and programs.
If your organization is unable to fund coaching, do not hesitate to contact me regarding individualized terms and conditions.
Where do I find the intake form you were talking about?
Why do you want me to complete the questionnaire/intake form you before we meet?
Where do the sessions take place? How do we meet?
I have never worked with a coach before - what do I need to do to be prepared?
You don’t need to do anything specific to prepare yourself for our sessions.
Come as you are! All your parts are welcome!
You can trust that I will lead you through the session in a way that you can focus and surrender to the process itself and feel as safe as possible.
If you want to tune into the upcoming session, find the/a part of you that is playful, open and curious.
Can we/I book single sessions?
You can book single sessions after we completed either the initial 6-Sessions-Package or 2 x 3-Sessions-Packages.
This is in the best interest of the client. It makes a huge difference in the transformation process if there is a certain strong commitment beforehand. It also helps the client to not take the easy way out when things get more intense and potentially highly transformative.
Having said that, of course everything I ask you or ask you to do is always an invitation. Nothing will happen without your consent.
After 6 Session the client and I have usually established a great foundation that is stable enough to do great work together whenever the client feels “it is time” for another session.
