COACHING

We focus so much on what is going on outside, it’s time to look inside! 

  • Do you wish for more clarity and direction?
  • Are you ready to create an intentional life?
  • Do you want to bring meaning to your career?
  • Are you sick of feeling unfulfilled?

As a coach I will help you to connect your head and your heart to find your answers to your questions. We will discover what happiness means to you and bring meaning into your life and work.

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” 

Carl Jung

What is life Coaching?

Life coaching draws upon a variety of tools and techniques to assist people create change in their lives and move them from where they are, to where they want to be.

It’s a relationship between a coach and a client, which honours the clients as the only experts in their lives, who truly know who they are and what they need, and have the answers to all questions or challenges – even if those answers appear to be buried or hidden inside.

The skills of a coach are knowing the right questions to ask and having the right tools to empower clients to find those answers within them. Thereby a coach helps the client to uncover what is truly important to them and what they feel is missing in their life. By reminding clients of their strengths, helping them to develop positive feelings about themselves, and giving valuable feedback, a coach assists them to become their personal ‘best’.

When I started Life Coaching with Janina I was really struggling with my self-esteem and direction in my career. I had a lot internal conflict, questioning whether or not my career was the right career for me and if I should try a new path.

I decided to do coaching when I realized that life was too short to be doing something that I didn’t enjoy. By the end of our first session I realized that all the answers that I was seeking weren’t going to be found externally and that they were already inside of me.

Being coached was empowering, joyful and authentic. The biggest change that I’ve noticed has been my boost in confidence. My anxiety and self-doubt has subsided and I am a lot more self assured. A year ago I never would have thought that I’d be in the job that I’m in now – my dream job! Amanda

Is this you? 

  • What do I really want?
  • Where do I belong?
  • How do I know what’s right for me?
  • Overall everything is good, but why am I still not really happy?
  • There’s got to be more to life, right?

The answers are within you! I believe that our heart is our compass but many of us have lost their connection to it. Life is so busy and we are exposed to so many influences every single day that we have forgotten how to look within and get in touch with our intuition.

Common things people choose to work with me include:

  • Gaining clarity on their life direction and meaning
  • Finding their dream job or changing careers
  • Uncovering and claiming their strengths and talents
  • Overcoming fear and self-doubt
  • Improving self-confidence and self-believe
  • Moving strongly through significant life transitions
  • Identifying their personal values and boundaries
  • Finding their passion(s)
To me, Janina is like a glowing candle in the dark: she radiates a soothing warmth and is a guiding light in times of reorientation and uncertainty. Being coached by her was both alleviating and liberating.

My goal was to find back to myself and to let go of unhealthy, self-imposed beliefs. I wanted unlearn negative behaviour and thought patterns in order to leave my stressed and ‘just coping’ self behind. Step by step, Janina helped me to take off my stiff and suffocating armour consisting of dogmas such as „only if you do xxx, you’ll be successful“, or „you should do xxx because that’s what society demands”, by providing me with the tools I needed.

What will we do together?

Together we will work on your goals and create an inspiring plan to move you towards the change you desire. Change that inspires you to live your best life, to build a positive relationship with yourself and to perhaps follow a new career path.

We will examine what is going on in your life right now, discover what your challenges or obstacles are, and choose a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be. Through coaching we will find answers to your questions, answers that only you know.

I don’t believe that there is one formula that serves all, but that it is always worthwhile to find out what yours is. My coaching is bespoke and individual, because everybody needs something different. I use a combination of coaching techniques, mindfulness practices, as well as tools from NLP, positive psychology and personal development.

Coaching can take place in person in Hamburg or online via Skype or Zoom.
