Hi!

I am Sophie,

I LOVE HELPING YOU FIND CALM IN THE MIDST OF BUSY LIFE.

THE PROUD FOUNDER OF ZEN & GO.

I first discovered the potential of Mindfulness training at work as Global Marketing Manager at Siemens Healthineers. Impressed by its effect on my wellbeing, performance and the quality of my relationships, I started a successful grassroots initiative in the company that grew from 15 to 900 people in only 1,5 years and received CEO & board management attention. Understanding how relevant modern Mindfulness training is to ensure a healthy, happy and productive workforce, I started my own business: Zen & Go.

The Zen & Go philosophy revolves around "slowing down to go fast". I am convinced that a clear mind drives the best decisions and helps us to bring our full potential into our jobs. When we stop being distracted by constant streams of thoughts, internal biases and conflicting triggering emotions, we can focus our attention on what really matters in the moment. I teach modern Mindfulness in a hands-on approach, always referring all tools towards the use in busy daily life. Only a few minutes can already bring a moment of calm and re-energize body and mind.

What makes me unique? I really care. Working with me is professional and authentic, full of joy and creativity. Instead of selling standardized packages, I align my knowledge with your team's needs.

I am based in Berlin am fluent in German and English. You can book me on-site or virtual in Germany & the whole Europe.

The Mindfulness training with Sophie, was a beautiful experience and I am very glad I could share it with my team. It seems Sophie was born to be a "mind" fitness coach. She made me and my team members feel immediately comfortable to share our personal bottlenecks to be always on in our job and together we worked on discovering what are our respective "me moments" we should plan and protect in our days to recharge fully the batteries of our mind.

The entire course was wonderfully structured and holistic as it combines fundamental basics with exercises and the workbook. Coupled with Sophie's wonderful manner, it is a weekly appointment that makes you look forward to the next lesson as soon as the current one is over. An all-around feeling-good course! Over and over again, I find myself just observing instead of reacting to feelings and thoughts that irritate me. In addition, I am more focused and communicate more friendly with myself.

With annual training courses we want to give our employees, mostly software developers, the chance to broaden their horizons. Therefore part of our training program for this year were two-day online seminars with Sophie on the topic of "Mindfulness & Resilience". Sophie put a lot of effort into making the event - which we had originally planned as a face-to-face workshop - an equally great remote event. The organization was very straightforward and ran smoothly, and Sophie was always very responsive to our suggestions, requests and feedback. The participants were enthusiastic about the varied blend of theoretical background and practical impulses. Sophie also provided the participants with many literature references and tips on other resources, so that they can now further deepen the topics of "Mindfulness & Resilience" after this two-day program. This is fantastic support so that participants can stay on the topic and can also incorporate the learned input into their everyday life.
