  • Executive Coaching
  • Coaching Start ups and founders teams
  • Coaching Supervision


Katrin‘s approach to coaching is integrated and combinative. She often applies a carefully selected range of psychological techniques and coaching perspectives to provide the most effective practice for the client. These perspectives are combined with insights gained through extensive experience and expertise coaching across a wide variety of organizations and individuals.

For the last 17 years Katrin has been working as a coach alongside highly talented and inspiring founders and leaders. Her clients include German car manufacturers, an international aircraft manufacturer, German and international banks, one of the largest global technology corporations, and government agencies and non-profit organizations. 

Based in Berlin she is particularly dedicated to helping founders and start-up teams on their journeys. Katrin loves to work with people who are committed to developing their own personalities, their teams, and their organizations, to facilitate purpose, culture and growth.

Since March 2021 Katrin has also been an accredited Coaching & OD Supervisor. She sees her role as a supervisor as helping to ‘unblock’ the supervisee, freeing them to work effectively with their client(s), and creating space to partner with the supervisee to examine cases together. This helps to consider complex, multi-layered challenges, within ourselves or within team dynamics, and works toward organizational change.
