Olà, I am Eva

My mission:


"I encourage empathetic women to stop boxing themselves into the "normal" 9 to 5 hamster wheel, where they feel depleted and tired at the end of the day.


Instead, they are empowered to design a work-life where they can be truly themselves, express their unique potential and make a positive difference in this world."

Is this you?

Like many people, you wonder if you are still on the right career path.


The “normal” 9 to 5 routine alienates and tires you. 

At work, you feel you cannot be your authentic self and you have to adapt a lot in order to fit in.  


For some time, you have been thinking about changing your work life into a direction where you can create more meaning and impact for causes that you really care about.


Maybe you dream about living abroad and working remotely, you don't want to be caged into an office anymore.

Living as a digital nomad in the Bali bubble also doesn’t sound like a long-term alternative to you. 

I feel you!

It took me some time and courage to allow myself to go for the work-life that really energizes me and gives me the power to do things in my own way.


Back in 2017/2018, I was really stuck: My hormones were totally out of whack, I had been dreaming about moving to another country where I felt more at home, how to build a career where I could work with people individually, and not be bound to an office. However, I didn’t want to disappoint and hurt anyone. In my mind, I had to live up to the expectations around me, not cause conflict, instead of honoring my own truth. I kept lying to myself and others. It took me at least 3 years not just to admit to myself, but also to the people close to me, that I had outlived my life and started embarking on a new journey. 


Coaching gave me the accountability and structure to turn my knowledge into action. During the course to become a certified Co-Active Coach, I experienced coaching myself and had several light bulb moments.


Coaching helped me to connect with the inner voice that I had successfully ignored for a couple of years and encouraged me to act on that inner clarity. This clarity gave me so much courage and confidence that I made huge changes within 6 months - my ex-partner and I got divorced, quit my corporate job, moved out of my apartment, started my own business, and traveled the world. 

Today, I live 5 Mins from the beach and work remotely with inspiring personal clients and inspirational global organizations like Child Helpline International, UNICEF, and DHL. 


I am healthy, fulfilled and above all, I love what I do because my work has allowed me to create value for others. 


I see the transformation of my clients and I feel blessed to be part of their journey. Now, I can support empathic women with lots of clarity and courage to break free from the traditional 9 to 5 hamster wheel and to create a fulfilling out-of-the-box work life.


Reimagined my career

"Due to the coaching sessions with Eva ⁣I have increased my self-belief and got access to my resources and strengths. I moved away from my head (overthinking, worries, fear) to my body and whole being. I explored new perspectives, becoming aware of thoughts and beliefs that were blocking me. I connected with my purpose and values and took action by starting my own business."
