Hi, I'm Martha
Mindset Coach and French expat living in Germany, dedicated to help you squeeze the best out of you so that you can go for what you want.
Long Story short
Mindset wasn't my forte when I started in life as a young adult.
I had terrible beliefs about myself, totally lacked confidence, and was terrified at setting boundaries with others.
The result was that I was getting by and in constant survival mode.
I had left school at 16 and immigrated to Germany with no money, no knowledge of the language, almost no connections, and no clue. A few years later I earned a Master's Degree.
But in between, it was a living hell inside. I was stopping myself from doing things I wanted to do all the time and was scraping by with jobs I didn't really wanted in the first place, taking the next best thing, because I thought I couldn't do better.
The year 2007 was a transition for me as I started to journal and reflect deeper on what was going on in my life. 2009 was a turning point. I had enough and started to trust myself.
Fast forward to the end of 2019 I followed my passion for mindset and helping people get out of their own way.
The kind of coaching style you can expect from me...
I offer coaching with elements of training and feedback.
In my coachings I use the best from Neuro-linguistic programming, Emotional Freedom Technique, Rational Behavior Emotive Therapy, Cognitive behavioral therapy, transactional analysis and many others.
Intuition is also a big part of my coaching style.
I am a semi and full professional published author – I wrote regularly for the newsletter of our parish and became the co-author of an IT textbook on SQL edited by one of Germany‘ s leading IT publishers. Still, I suffered writer‘ s block a lot of times, and finally, I stopped writing at all. Used to solving my problems by myself and, yes, being a man, I was reluctant to get help from another person. So, I wasn’t really willing to work with Martha, but her energy and persistence won me over and helped me to get writing again. Since then, I started a new writing project and already got 30,000 words in the first draft.
Martha successfully helped me uncover a mindset roadblock that was standing in the way of me moving forward in my new business. She is very intuitive and could clearly see where I was holding myself back. I am eternally grateful for her help. I found that I could talk to her in confidence about everything and that she was able to get straight to the heart of my issue, even though I could not pinpoint it myself. On top of this she also gave me homework so that I can continue making progress even after our session.
Martha is a warm and joyful coach. If you need a new look at your business or simply need to break through some limiting thoughts, Martha is the way to go. She can help you get back into your creative flow and help you come back into your unique creative business flow.
Martha’s calm but determined attitude helped me uncover the root reason of resistance to start an important project and take a small but effective actionable step in just one session. Now that I got things in motion, I keep working towards my goal persistently despite still having struggles. Thank you Martha for helping me overcome this creative block and getting started in my project!
Martha's effect on me was incredible in such a short time. I don't know how, but she DIRECTLY recognized my needs and pain points, and gave me a super simple but very deep exercise that worked SO WELL! I took action for the decisions in my life that I've been waiting for for almost a year. I cannot thank her enough. If you're looking for a kickass coach go for her because she's simply the best and gonna change your life.
Well, I'm a coach myself and assumed that a Kick-Start-Call with Martha would provide enough clues to be able to continue on my own. The conclusion was yes. And no. Yes, because this Kick-Start session has hit the mark in such a way that I could hardly believe it. Martha has an incredibly calm, focused way of tackling the complex, tangled matters I presented. She has the gift of being able to get a clear insight into the underlying cause. For what she identified as the possible cause of my problem was a complete surprise. Well, I knew that it existed, but until she told me I didn't realize that this was a fundamental aspect. I did the homework she instructed me to do and also my variation of it. The result has been phenomenal. Rarely have I experienced such a significant change, almost on the very same day. Therefore I decided that I definitely won‘t go on playing on my own - no matter if I am a coach or not - and so I booked a package. Which turned out to be the best idea I had had in a long time.
This is me...
I love books and wirting, dancing and I'm a passionate jogger.
I love to snorkle and chase fish swarms in the Mediterranean Sea. Nobody gets hurts in the process.
There's not a single day I spend without music.
Sometimes I start the day by headbanging.
And I suck at parking. But that's a limiting belief. ;-)
You shouldn't book me if...
You are looking for an ICF certifed Coach. I've learned the tools and I let myself be coached and mentored by other coachs, but I'm not certified.
You're absolutely hermetic to spirituality. I'll adapt to your belief system but integrating spiritual elements feels more natural to me.
You actually need a therapist. Coaching is not therapy. Even if coaching uses tools that can be used in therapy as well.
If you're struggling with depression or any other kind of mental health issue, there are several official organizations that can help you find a therapist who fits your needs in your home country.
