Approach to coaching and training
What do I want to achieve as a coach?
Many people feel constrained and insecure during presentations. To convey our own qualities self-confidently requires practice and self-knowledge. On stage, I learned how important it is to be able to present myself professionally yet authentically. For me, authenticity is the interplay of voice, body, personality, and genuine enthusiasm for what you do. I am continually motivated to find this enthusiasm in my clients, and together find ways to reveal their strengths to the outside world without denying their weaknesses.
I am a certified opera singer, singing teacher, and state-certified speech therapist. After graduating from the Hanns Eisler Academy of Music, I worked as a freelance singer on the opera stage and concert podium for several years before successfully completing my training as a speech therapist at the Charité Berlin. During the course of further training I have expanded my specialist knowledge in pedagogy and psychology, concentration and communication training, and voice training methods. I have been working as a speech therapist with a focus on voice therapy since 2012.
At Scienza I conduct workshops and seminars that combine communication and self-presentation in a number of ways. Networking is one of my focal points, since coherent and authentic self-representation combined with professional communication plays a decisive role in building sustainable relationships.
