Career Coaching

Are you reaching your full potential? Do you find it difficult to motivate yourself for work? Are you tirelessly working towards your next vacation? Remember, you only have one life. Make sure you make the most of it.

It's about you

It's all about you—your pain, your desires, your life, and your career. We're here to listen, challenge you with new perspectives, help you organize your thoughts, and help you work towards your goal. We won't tell you what to do or how to do it because deep down, you already know. Our goal is to provide clarity regarding your career ideas and empower you to choose your own path. 

We don't believe in standard approaches or quick fixes. If you're not open to taking a deep look at yourself, then we might not be the right fit for you. We strive for positive career development that resonates with your core being.

"I have been working with Petra. She has been a great coach; she was able to understand my personality and my values. With her help I have been able to bring out such values, link them to my interest and construct a coherent path. Suddenly, all my past experiences made complete sense and the path towards the future was clear."

What are some typical questions we address in career coaching? 

"I am looking for a new job."
My current job no longer energizes me. I'm still in it because it's comfortable, but I feel it's time for a change. What would be a good choice for me? Should I pursue the same type of work in a different environment? Should I consider a completely different line of work? Or should I follow my dream of being self-employed? I can't decide, and I don't know where to start.

"I want to get more out of my current job."
I enjoy the company, environment, and colleagues I work with, but I'm missing a sense of challenge. How can I continue to grow? What are my talents? Which direction should I take in my professional development? What steps can I take to reach my full potential? I need support in deciding the right path and guidance on how to take the necessary steps.

"I want to find more joy in my work."
There are certain factors that hinder my job satisfaction. I want tools to address those issues. I'm dealing with high work pressure and need help managing stress. How can I improve my work-life balance? How do I ensure that my work aligns with who I am as a person and what I value? Work is more than just a job to me, and I want it to reflect my true self.

Most coaching questions can be categorized within the three main questions mentioned above. If yours doesn't fit, no worries. Let us know, and we'll determine if we can assist you or recommend other coaching options.

'I want to get more out of my current job.' Usually requires 3 to 5 sessions.

'I want to find more joy in my work.' Typically involves 4 to 6 sessions.

Our rate is €135 per hour (including taxes for individuals; excluding taxes for companies). In a free introductory conversation, we can provide a more precise estimate of the cost based on your specific situation and needs.


"Petra is an excellent listener and very skilled at 'distilling' the great and important lessons and insights from one's career and/or life story. She creates a context of trust, calm, respect and openness, in which she does not prescribe answers, but rather supports the client to identify answers and new possibilities themselves."
