"Everyone has access to their own inner healing wisdom that makes change and transformation possible at any time."

Throughout my life I was driven by the question

if it is possible to live a happy fulfilled life despite living 

through childhood trauma and with severe health challenges. 

Following this question I was led to many different places meeting wonderful

people, teachers and mentors in my professional as well as my private life.


After studying political science, sociology and pedagogy in Frankfurt/Main and

first professional experiences in New York, Hamburg and Berlin, I started working for the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) as a democratization officer in Bosnia-Herzegovina in the late 90s. From 2003 to 2007 I was responsible for large multilateral projects to combat human trafficking for various organizations (GIZ, ICMPD) until I started my own consultancy business (mediative solutions OGin Vienna in 2007 working with various organizations and teams in the psycho-social field and since 2014 more and more with individuals in the therapeutic field.


My personal search has lead me mainly into the field of transpersonal psychology,

embodiment techniques and the work with expanded states of consciousness in modern therapeutic as well as in shamanic contexts. Today I am healthy and very much enjoy bringing these methods into my professional practice supporting people on their individual journey towards self-empowerment and wholeness.

I love to combine modern medical knowledge with ancient wisdom systems. If necessary,

I work here in a network with doctors, psychotherapists and psychiatrists.


As co-founder of the European Association for Holotropic Breathwork (EAHB)

and as Austria coordinator for the international

Grof Transpersonal Training (GTT) Program

I am passionate about raising awareness about the transformational potential

of working in expanded states of consciousness and training people to

become Holotropic Breathwork® facilitators.
