My mother taught medicine at the university - and I knew at age 5 that I wanted to become either a physician or work in a pharmaceutical company.
At 16, shortly before I finished school, I discovered punk and politics. After a severe liver disease that conventional medicine could not help me with, I realized that it wasn’t as almighty as I had presumed - and also that big pharma might just pursue other interests than the quest for healing.
At age 14, after my parents divorced, I had developed anorexia, and that
also raised questions in me, like: What do we even consider
unhealthy? How do body and soul interact? How sick is the individual -
in relation to a sick society?
I read a lot of books on psychosomatics and tried to study philosophy, in the hope that that could provide some answers. Instead I found a record store and a job as a DJ in a huge club. I fell deeper & deeper in love with music and it opened whole news levels of consciousness for me. I didn’t go to class often… (Oh Bondage! Up yours!)
I moved to Berlin and started a record store with my DJ partner: MR DEAD & MRS FREE.
At age 27 I met an astrologer and that became my next obsession. I started to study astrology and worked in a homoeopathic practice and went back and forth between two worlds. In order to work with homoeopathy I started to study regular medicine - but got very frustrated after 2 or 3 years.
I married and had 3 children.
Just before I got married somebody gave me Bert Hellinger’s
der Liebe - and I knew immediately: This is it!
It took a little while before I found a group that was working with
Hellinger’s concepts, in 1999. It took a little longer to find the right
teacher for me: in 2012 I started training with Peter Orban (and also
got a degree as
Heilpraktiker für Psychotherapie)
When my kids developed several allergic symptoms, that I had also
suffered with for years, I realized that homoeopathy was not sufficient
to deal with that. I discovered functional medicine and the Paleo diet -
und cooked the whole family free of symptoms within 9 months. We never
want to go back to
Since that time I coach other people through that same kind of
transition to a healthier diet. Very often that also raises more
psychological issues - as food is so closely related to a lot of
emotions. So I find it extremely efficient and helpful to work on both
aspects - physical and mental/emotional - simultaneously.
