Mindfulness Self-compassion Workshop

Are you more critical of yourself than of others? Does stress, worry and shame pop up more often than you would like? Then this is your workshop. You will learn how to let go of these feelings, take better care of yourself and others, to reduce stress and anxiety and why punishing yourself doesn’t work.

A growing number of organisations are offering mindfulness and meditations trainings and it is not always easy to choose. Therefore I offer this free and accessible mindfulness workshop where you can get to know me and to learn more about mindfulness, meditation and the approach of Beyond Mindfulness.

With inspiring videos, interactive questions and new concepts I will strive to make this an enriching experience for you.

Mindfulness Tips and Exercises – make a start now

This mini-workbook stimulates you to take the first steps in the world of mindfulness and self-compassion and helps you to bring it in to practice.

Reducing stress

Learn to let go of stress, control and perfectionism and be more relaxed and in touch with yourself.


Become aware of your limits, recognize stress signals and allows stress to be released.


The approach is down-to-earth, practically applicable, fun without loosing any depth.

Tackling root causes

We go to the root of the matter and merge western psychology with eastern traditions.


The approach of Beyond Mindfulness is based on the insights and approach of the founders of mindfulness and self-compassion in the West (Jon Kabat-Zinn and Kristin Neff) and has influences of Tibetan Buddhism and Yoga philosophy. This unique combination consists of a wide range of meditation, in depth exercises, inspirational videos, teachings and group discussions.

Individual coaching is adapted to the experience and needs of the person in question. Beyond Mindfulness uses elements of solution-orientated approach, transformational presence, non-violent communication and Voice Dialogue.


With Beyond Mindfulness I aim to make the wisdom of the traditional movements (i.e. Buddhism) accessible to a larger group, in order to let people experience long-term inner peace, joy and happiness. In my personal quest, Due to my curious and searching nature, I have walked various paths. I studied in Wales, I lived and worked in Tanzania and worked both in business and the mental health.

I have the ambition to make a genuine contribution so that people can act less from fear and more from love and a connection to life. With my experiences as a meditation practitioner and as a professional trainer-coach I can offer a unique combination of activities.
