As a life and performance coach, I support you to live by conscious choice rather than by habits, other people's expectations or limiting beliefs. My clients achieve better work-life balance, have more job satisfaction, find more meaningful relationships and reach their goals faster, whether this is a promotion, a new career, or develop more confidence, self-worth and direction. Increasing work pressures, never-ending todo lists, and demands from friends and family cause growing stress and general overwhelm and give us the feeling our lives are run for us. I help people take back control and find more purpose, balance, fulfilment and happiness in life.
Although there is an enormous potential in each of us, all too often we sabotage ourselves with doubts, lack of confidence, worries, and comparison with others. Subconscious automatic thought patterns give us deceptive reasons to stay where we are rather than pursuing our aims and aspirations. Using several techniques based on cognitive, behavioural and neuroscientist research, as a coach I tap into your potential and unlock and activate hidden skills, resources and strengths, thereby effecting positive change and growth.
Being client-centred, I do not attempt to replace your experience with my own views or dictate an action plan which has worked in the past for others. Instead, I assist you to discover a feasible plan that will work for you personally.
I support people who want to
- stop avoiding decisions and start implementing changes
- tackle old problems with new solutions
- reach their full potential
- acquire the necessary resources and skills to achieve more
- start getting things done rather than being overwhelmed by to-do lists
- stop living their life on 'auto pilot' and break free from repetitive unwanted thoughts, emotions and behaviours
- stop worrying and start taking control
- bring more purpose, direction and fulfilment into their life
With over twenty years of experience as an academic, I specialise in university coaching to help students and academics to to cope with overwhelming pressures and to accelerate their success, but many of my clients come from other walks of life.
In my coaching, I create for you a safe, non-judgemental and client focussed space that enables us to uncover your hidden limiting beliefs, unlock your full potential, find new ways of thinking and acting, and design an action plan that works for you. I also offer ongoing support if new challenges come up or if you need a boost for your confidence, motivation, commitment or stickability.
Training, qualifications & experience
After having studied law in Germany (Potsdam University) and the UK (LLM and PhD at Warwick University) I received my accredited life coach qualification in 2017 whilst working as an Associate Professor of Law. When I began my training, I assumed that life coaching was like sport coaching and mainly consisted of giving advice, encouragement and recording progress. But I learned very quickly that life and performance coaching is very different and offers so much more than mentoring. It taps into the unlimited and often undiscovered hidden potential of individuals, discovers new avenues to success, unblocks limiting beliefs and enhances productive thought patterns. Most of all it makes real changes and achieves tangible results.
Over twenty years of professional experience in teaching, research and publishing offered me the privilege of coaching and mentoring numerous students and colleagues and developed my expertise in building strong confidence, enhancing performance and strengthening motivation.
Throughout the years I have expanded my knowledge in skills in the field of mindset and performance coaching and have completed a number of training courses and qualifications including:
- Assertiveness Techniques
- Essential Mentoring Skills
- Motivating Students and Keeping them Motivated
- Accredited Diploma in Performance Coaching with NLP
- Appraising with Confidence
- Learning How to Learn
- The Science of Well-Being
- Spiritual Life Coaching Diploma
- Social Psychology
I am fascinated by the power of thought and the recent discoveries in neuroscience and social psychology and their practical applications in everyday life.

Here some examples of what my clients say:
“I can say with conviction: Have coaching with Regina was the best decision of my life and it saved me. First of all: Regina is extremely focused, solution-oriented and very humorous and warm-hearted. Already in the first lesson she managed to pinpoint my rather undefined problem areas. In my emotional impasse at that time, I would never have been able to do this on my own. I had lost myself, my self-confidence and all belief in my ability and doing.
With her refreshing and empathic manner, Regina achieved that I reclaimed the courage to allow myself things that until then I had only granted others and to accept my own strengths.
With her feeling for the essentials, she does not allow herself to be distracted by sideshows and coaches exclusively without judgment. She never criticizes or censors, but is always 100% honest in her support.
The coaching has helped me an awful lot, both privately and professionally. I have completely reoriented myself and am suddenly a much happier and more content person. For me it is like the end of a lifelong search in which I was almost lost. I can only say THANK YOU for this help, which will be with me all my life.”
“Regina was an inspiring yet patient coach and really helpful in the way she supported me in meeting my aim. What was refreshing was the way she was persistent without being pushy and encouraged me to find my own solutions rather than keep telling me what I ought to be doing”
“The greatest outcome of the coaching was for me that it was completely different from what I had expected. While I had previously assumed that a coach would simply prompt me, accompany and guide me in collecting my own ideas and organising my steps towards realising my goal, I ended up with an altogether different attitude towards my goals.
Regina asked me questions that I had not and never would have asked myself, which were so meaningful that by answering them I realised I wanted to alter my goal in a way that made it more satisfying and credible at the same time.”
"Regina worked with me for several months on setting realistic professional and personal goals and maintain a healthy work life balance. I found the conversations with her enormously helpful as she has a unique ability to empathize, listen and brighten up your day. She sheds light on entangled situations and habits, disentangles them with you and makes you see your positive qualities and how to strengthen them. Her goal is not only to help others with the excellent and imaginative advice she provides but to enable others to find confidence, wisdom, and strength in themselves. Regina also draws upon a wealth of professional experiences in high pressure and demanding universities which makes her the ideal coach for academics and PhD students. All in all, I am so thrilled that I was able to work with her as Regina has a real gift to help change lives for the better.”
“What I liked about Regina’s approach, apart from asking the „right” questions was, that she was always conscientious, sensitive and never in any way imposing any opinion, expectation, experience or council of her own, not even in a mild, suggestive way. I felt that our work was completely about me and that Regina was always waiting patiently for my thoughts to develop and my own inner guidance to unfold.
But most of all, Regina was so supportive during all of our work, that the feeling to be understood and encouraged in my aspirations helped me more than anything else. It is obvious that Regina does not put on a professional demeanour in order to achieve this effect but simply acts out her very natural and sincerely caring attitude to her fellow human beings.
I now believe that it is well worth our while to spend this time and attention on how we see a problem and how we set a goal before springing into action, since that may profoundly change the quality of anything we actually do. Before, I wasn’t sure that a coach could do anything for me that half an hour with a pen and a piece of paper couldn’t do just as well.
I would recommend Regina to anyone looking for a coach and will definitely ask for her services again.”
“Regina is a very emotionally intelligent person with a warm personality and great listening skills. There was no judgement or a feeling that Regina was trying to guide me towards a ‘suitable’ solution, just a time and space to break down goals into easily achievable action points. Regina has a natural ability to choose the right tools for a task and empower people to move forward towards achievement.”
