About the good life

“When the student is ready, the teacher appears. And then the only thing you truly need is this one person that deeply believes in you!”

- Nila

Why work with me

I am not your typical health coach overwhelming you with generalised methods and plans. I know that having a person around that knows exactly where you are and how you feel and has the proper skills is key to providing a successful, individualised support system. I can provide you with both: expertise as a registered psychologist, nutritionist and yoga teacher and my personal experiences with physical and psychological misalignments.

COACHING WITH ME IS HEARTFELT, RESEARCH-LED,
AND IMMEDIATELY APPLICABLE TO YOUR LIFE.

We’re all different. There’s no right or wrong when it comes to diet, movement and lifestyle. I want to help you find a way that works for you

Through holistic and integrative practices, I support you in creating more compassion for yourself, finding more capacity to feel the hard stuff, and developing more understanding of how to manage the challenges of everyday life. The core value of my work lies in the believe that healing doesn’t have to be difficult and done alone. I believe that healing, growing and evolving is possible at any age, for every person around the world.

Top 3 things that make me unique

“An expert is a person who has made all mistakes in a narrow field.”

I consider myself as an expert when it comes to nutrition, yoga, and psychology.

Apart from studying all 3 areas in extended detail, I have made all the mistakes imaginable in regard to dieting, movement, and desperately trying to “find” my place in this world. To be honest, I still secretly wish that 10 years ago there would have been someone who understands and supports me on my journey- without telling me what to eat, how to move, or behave, but instead supporting me to discover what feels right for me.

I bring my whole heart and authentic self to our sessions. I utilize a holistic lens, viewing the mind-body-spirit connection as integral in understanding who you are as a whole person. My approach is non-judgemental, compassionate, and authentic. I fully believe that being heard, seen, and witnessed without judgment is one of the most healing experiences we can have. Being that witness for others is a gift I am grateful for every day. I love to ask the “tough” questions as much as I am passionate about holding space for your answer to arise from within. 

Yoga, Meditation, gentle movement as well as changing my diet and my entire belief system transformed my life! In our sessions we will implement a range of tools from ancient wisdom combined with modern science-based techniques from positive psychology towards where you want to go.

A big part of our sessions includes practical, hand-on experiences and weekly “homework”. I will cheer and challenge you at the same time! Speaking from my own experience, I know too well that merely talking about what to do is not enough. We will practice specific tools together and find ways for you to build productive habits to achieve the results you are longing for for a life-time.

About the good life

“A holistic psychologist is not someone that you go to for life advice. A holistic psychologist is someone that triggers within you, your own ability to find it out yourself.”

- Nila

MIND

“We are continuously living in the feeling of our thinking. But because the special effects are so great, we think that we are reacting to what’s going on outside us.”

BODY

“The power plant doesn’t have energy. It generates energy. When movement & diet is wrong medicine is of no use. When diet is correct medicine is of no need.”

SOUL

"Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

Testimonials

Transformational stories

Sometimes, it’s best to hear from the people who have gone through the process themselves!

“I searched for reliable, easy applicable and practical ways to improve my self-believe when I was at a very dark point of my life. I was blown away by what I achieved within the last couple of weeks. This course did not just improve my relationship to my body, mind, and soul, but also to all my external relationships and the people I love. Believe it or not, this program will change your entire life! A worthwhile program for everyone who feels like they have lost their power inside themselves, with the intention to show others it is possible to change your current situation, because the gateways to wisdom and knowledge are always open. Thank you Nila. I really don't know where I would be without you today...I finally know what it feels like to be ALIVE!”

“I was diagnosed with major depressive disorder and hospitalised- twice. My doctors put me on pills, but I decided there was hope elsewhere. After about a month I worked with Nila, I experienced a dramatic change, and I’m now hopeful about the future. I just feel more at peace. I feel more complete. I was the worst of the worst, and I feel like if I can come back from that, then everyone has hope. I have learned that I can change the future that I have, and I don't have to worry about relying on other people for everything anymore. I have the power within myself to heal through changing my lifestyle and treating myself with compassion, kindness, and time. One day at the time.”

“I didn't have a diagnosed illness, and wasn't sure if this would be the right place to approach my issues. I had a history of eating disorders, depression and anxiety, numbing myself with alcohol and food. After the total Transformation program, I now feel a deep sense of being OK. I simply have to allow myself to feel. It's so refreshing. Today I am completely happy, I'm completely healthy. I'm more vibrant than I've ever been. I've lost all the access weight- both mentally & physically and no longer restrict my food intake and can enjoy my meals fully with friends and family. It’s truly amazing how much this work has transformed my life.. and the person who owns it!”
Sofie

"I was a non-functioning, 36 year-old mother of three. I couldn't take care of my kids, I couldn't take care of myself. I was literally just sleeping through life. The real me is more of a social person. I want to be happy. I want to help others. I laugh now and smile a lot. I sleep like a baby. I truly have all that I need within me and I finally look forward to tomorrow. Now, I’m really into yoga and trying some meditation as well, I feel amazing, and I will never go back. The biggest change that made every other change possible was a shift in my mindset. What really helped me was how Nila encouraged me to stop look outside and find a way that works for ME. I am now empowered to chose how my life goes on from now-on.”

FAQs

Because I am passionate about helping you re(dis)cover yourself and  (re)claim your power.

I practice what I preach and only teach the tools that helped me on my own journey as both a patient and practitioner – not all of them can be found in textbooks.

I consider myself as an expert when it comes to overcoming obstacles and turning them into your greatest opportunities (turning wounds into wisdom is my secret superpower).

I believe that every single person has the right to be seen, heard and loved. I believe that everyone has a story worth sharing and turning it into something that will make them thrive for the rest of their lives.

Working with me is not all about pink roses and champagne. It will be “fun” (laughing heals), but you also have to do the real work.

Nevertheless, I will cheer and challenge you at every step of the way until you are ready to thrive on your own and awaken to who you truly are. 

I’m not a big fan of ‘the formal’ stuff, but I do believe that education is just as important as personal experience. So here is my educational background:

  • I have an international MSc. in Psychology cum laude (University Heidelberg, Germany and University Leiden, the Netherlands). 
  • I am a certified plant-based Nutritionist (ecodemy, 2019) 
  • I am a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga teacher (Zuna Yoga, 2018)

And the informal/’experiental’:

  • Personal history of eating disorder recovery, depression, anxiety, and self-harming behaviour 
  • spending a decade listening to every talk, watching every video, reading every book on self-development only to discover that sometimes it takes a long time to discover that it doesn’t need a long time to know yourself!

My holistic health coaching is action-oriented and focuses on enabling you to make small changes that add up to big results over time. My work recognizes that you’re the expert on you. I will be there to support you in making successful changes, but you’re always in control.

Some of the areas that I can help you with include (one or more of the following):

  • work-life balance, mental health and lifestyle
  • emotional support and positive behavioural change
  • depression, anxiety, and psycho-physical misalignment
  • substance abuse
  • eating disorders (if client is physically healthy)
  • relationships (family, friends, children, coworkers)
  • boundary setting & maintenance
  • yoga, mindfulness & meditation practice
  • physical blockages and pain
  • goal setting & achievement
  • nutritional advice 
    • how to go vegan / add more plants into your diet
    • develop a healthy relationship with food
    • nutritional advice & individual recipe development
    • mindful eating habits
  • personal abilities & challenges, and a sense of life satisfaction

Yes. As I would love to have an impact in as many lives as possible around the world, sessions can be hold in German or English. 

Yes, absolutely. You can combine any package of your choice. You will also get a special discount, if you decide to extend the intensive transformational program after 3 months.

I offer two ways to accompany you on your way. Most of my sessions take place online, because I want to make them available for ever single person around the world.

By offering online coaching, I hope to provide clients with increased flexibility and comfort while accommodating busy and complex demands of every day life.

If you happen to live around the corner, I offer you personal meetings in a beautiful environment in Hamburg, Germany. In exceptional cases, I can also make appointments at your place.

No matter which way we meet: I am here to support you on your journey.

It’s amazing what we DO spend money on in the hope of cultivating self-belief (I am talking from first-hand experience here)!

But when you make the choice to consciously invest in your healing, growth and development, you are doing something really courageous.

 You are saying to yourself that you’re ready to try new things, to ask for help, to take responsibility for actively participating in the creation of your life. 

Remember that investing in your health and wellbeing is the best investment you can ever make. Because this is YOUR life and it is up to YOU to create it as memorable, and joyful as possible.

Simply put, positive psychology is the study of the “good life” and  the foundation of my holistic approach. Positive psychology is the “science about what makes life worth living”, about the positive aspects of us humans, and about our strengths (not weaknesses). It is a very young branch of psychology, which only became established in the 1990s as a new field of psychology. In contrast to clinical-therapeutic psychology, the focus is on the healthy person, his abilities and characteristics that make him/her so special.

In contrast to classical psychology, which focuses on the treatment, development and exploration of negative emotions and classic clinical pictures, Positive Psychology focuses on researching positive feelings, resources, opportunities and strengths. To develop a positive outlook towards your future, instead of dwelling in the past.

In my sessions, I am always working holistically and using techniques from psychology, mind-set coaching, nutritional counselling and ancient practices such as yoga, meditation and philosophy. As a holistic health practitioner, I use an integrative approach to both diet and lifestyle changes to improve my clients’ health. Thanks to the versatility of my academic and additional education, as well as my personal experience, I have developed a method that combines the areas of psychology, yoga, and nutrition (holistically). The holistic approach allows us to address both the body and the mind and their bi-directional connection. During my sessions I coach & educate, empower, and help you create a healthy (new) life style from the inside out. 

A holistic approach focuses on the “whole being”:

Your mind

With this part we will focus on holistic psychological techniques to work with the mind-body connection. Some of the tools we will cover are: meditation, mindfulness, and conscious awareness practices. We will establish a personalised plan for you so that it will support you on your own journey.

Your body

Together we will take a deeper look into nutrition, how food affects you and makes you feel. We will work on a long-term nutrition and body program to keep you in connection with yourself.

Your soul

During the program, you will connect on a deeper level with your spiritual self including your unique passions, strengths, and purpose. You do not need to belief in anything except from yourself. That’s when the healing begins.

Therapy is about healing the past. Consulting is about creating the future!

In my sessions, I advise people on a variety of topics. Thanks to my studies in psychology and my further education in other subject areas, I offer you support in the form of one-to-one conversations, visualizations, nutrition, yoga and breathing exercises. Psychological counselling is – in contrast to psychotherapy – suitable for mentally healthy people and promotes the mental competence and the mental and physical well-being. These include, among other things, skills as well as the development of new patterns of feeling, thinking and acting. Our sessions are a wonderful way to develop mindfulness for oneself, to release blockages and thereby to exploit your own full potential.

Whereas licensed therapists focus on identifying how your past affects your current feelings and behaviors, coaches focus on modifying your current behaviors so you can reach your future goals of health and happiness.

It’s about allowing more of YOU into your life – your emotions and experiences, your natural strengths, what you value and the thoughts you are thinking about yourself and your life – for the purpose of helping you create what you want.

I work with people who are clinically healthy and want to improve their mental well-being, remove blockages, develop a healthier way of dealing with stress or nutrition, or work on topics that occupy them all.

Furthermore, I offer additional support to people with clinically diagnosed mental illness who are undergoing psychotherapeutic treatment after consulting with the attending physician (e.g. eating disorders, depression, allergies or food intolerances). I see my work as an important and effective complement to the therapy, with which I can enable patients to heal holistically and, above all, in the long-term.

Gentle reminder: a therapist/coach doesn’t “heal” you. A therapist shares tools and knowledge, while providing empathy and holding space so that you can heal yourself.

Please note:

I promise no cure or relief from physical or mental suffering. I consider myself as a supporter and educator who encourages you to not bind your hopes exclusively to other people.

Also, I do not treat illnesses, but look after and accompany people who need help or assistance in certain situations for a while. My aim is not to eliminate specific symptoms, but to work with you to illuminate conflicts from different perspectives and to support you on the way to activating your self-healing powers.

My treatment does not substitute for a psychotherapeutic or medical treatment, but it can serve as an addition to support you on your journey.

When we work together 1 x 1, our sessions are always tailored to your specific needs, goals and intentions. Private sessions give you the space and time to focus on yourself. For me, our sessions are not about dictating you how you should live your life. Also, the focus in our sessions is not on your “problems” but on the possible solutions to your problems.

Our 50-minute sessions combine a combination of individual advice, breathing exercises, mental techniques, meditation, relaxation and lifestyle techniques, as well as nutritional education (if you request so). Our collaboration will be goal-oriented to assist you in your efforts and to motivate you to become totally independent on your own.

The tools we will use will imply a combination of tools:

    • Holistic Psychology
    • Transformational Journaling
    • Mirror Work
    • NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming)
    • Self Care & Reflection
    • Mindfulness-based Techniques
    • Habit-building 
    • Nutritional education
    • Somatic work (breath work, yoga)
    • Adventure-based Therapy

ME TOO.

For many years, I hid from the world, afraid to raise my voice. I’d fake a smile and say I was “doing great” to hide the pain I buried deep inside. The problem with the time we live in is that we don’t really share the struggles. What we share instead are the results of the struggles, but this gives a false impression. Truth is: I had to ask for and accept a lot of support to get me where I am today.
⠀⠀
So I know that it takes a lot of courage & radical honesty to open your mouth and raise your voice. But asking for help doesn’t make you less capable, less independent, less strong, or less worthy. Asking for help simply means you’re acknowledging your humanness – something we all share. Vulnerability is courageous.

As Brene Brown so beautifully says, “We don’t have to do all of it on our own. We were never meant to.”
