Hi, I am Ulrike.
As a child I had big plans for my life, instinctively knowing that life was a great adventure where anything is possible.
But my mother made me believe that big ambitions are not appropriate. That as a girl I would get married and have children anyway, so there was no need to have serious career plans.
My life, my potential were put into a box. A box that always felt much too small for me.
After I finished my studies came the opportunity to break break free from these chains: I moved to another country and threw myself with enthousiasm into my first job (I started as a secretary). Soon my efforts paid off and I got my first leadership role in a pretty exciting company.
But my mother’s box was still there! Unnoticed but always active in the background.
Eventually I got married and built a house with my then husband. I lived a quite life until suddenly and unexpectedly the moment of waking up arised: In my early 30s I realized that I was not in the right place. That my real life was somewhere else and that I had lived according to my parents’ ideas and values, but not according to my own.
I made a radical cut, found my soul mate, and went back to university to get my master’s degree. From that moment on, things went uphill, both privately and professionally, because finally I had admitted to myself what I really wanted and – more importantly:
I had given myself permission to make this will a reality!
I had not got rid of my box yet, but I had enlarged it so much that I could live quite happily with it.
In the years that followed, I was professionally motivated by performance. I was taking on challenge after challenge and steadily climbed the career ladder to the top.
But despite my success I was full of self-doubt.
Today I ask myself how it was possible to have had such a career despite my little developed self-confidence. I explain it to myself with my pronounced perfectionism, which made my projects one by one become great successes.
But it was precisely this – the combination of perfectionism and low self-esteem – that made me never feel fully happy with myself despite my steep career.
On the contrary, the more my career developed, the more I felt like an imposter that did not really belong there. I struggled with my role as a leader and put a lot of energy into “playing” this role as perfectly as possible.
When I reached the top and joined the executive committee of an international corporation, I suddenly realized that my box was still there.
That there were deeply rooted beliefs that kept me from being my true self.
So, I began to look for ways to get rid of my box once and for all. I read a lot of books about self-development and took some courses. This made me move forward towards my inner freedom, but I knew that I wanted to go one bold step further.
In 2018, I decided to train myself in this area and I chose a renowned coaching academy in Switzerland, which works with ertified processes that go deep into the subconscious.
That was the key moment for me, the big breakthrough! Finally – after 45 years of my life
I knew how to flip my inner switches so that I could spread my wings and soar to whole new heights!
I do not want you to wait 45 years to unfold your life. That is why I am here, that is why I put all my energy into my work today.
Because I want to empower women with dreams and ambitions to discover and develop their strength within to free themselves from external constraints and to empower themselves to live the life they have in mind.
I hope we will meet on this journey and I am already looking forward to getting to know you!
Do you know that feeling?
When you know that you want to change - but somehow you cannot take action...
…. I know this feeling very well. Each time when I knew that I needed to make a change in my life and that I had to take bold decisions and make bold steps to get there – I was anxious. Because I did not know what was waiting for me at the other end and because I did not know what or who I would lose on my way.
But despite this uncertainty I always had like an inner engine that gave me extraordinary strength and courage in these moments; something inside of me that empowered me to overcome any obstacle that was in my way; fueled by a deep understanding that we always get as much power as we need.
I am deeply convinced that absolutely everyone carries extraordinary strength inside of themselves and that we can mobilize this strength when we need it, when we have to make a bold step in our life.
If I was able to do this, you are able to do it, too.
This is what I help you with.
