Tailored to your organization
Mindfulness describes the mindset every great leader needs:
Approaching moments with presence,
Making decisions with clarity,
Managing others with empathy.
Mindfulness training promotes open-mindedness and clarity, both of which are key factors for leaders and teams to quickly adapt to new situations, stay mentally healthy and focus on the team's success.
Zen & Go mindfulness training combines mindfulness techniques with methods from Psychology and Coaching. Transformation takes place on a mind-set level (mental training for increased focus, presence and resilience) and behavior-level (improvement of work efficiency as well as productive teamwork).
All my trainings are 100% relevant to the modern business world.
Mindfulness can be cool.
My trainings are modern and joyful. I love introducing the concept of mindfulness to organizations and to show clients how they can find a way to thrive in a past-paced world.
I have worked with conservative leadership circles as well as hip start-ups in Berlin. I really care and don't offer any standardized packages, but really want to make a difference for you and your team. My materials are beautifully designed, and our sessions will be fun!

This really gave the opportunity to learn and explore and find the methods or styles which fit your needs or you enjoy most. I liked Sophie's openness and honesty, you don't pretend to be an almighty guru and you share from your own experience. The course helped me to become more aware in the NOW, so for example during the day I now sometimes do a belly breathing more consciously and try to do a body scan when I feel stressed.
We’ve introduced „Mindful Breaks“ at Batten & Company as working from home further increased how relevant resilience, focus and self-awareness are for the team. Sophie’s approach to teaching mindfulness is down-to-earth and pragmatic, so that it’s easily relatable for all of us. I particularly like that the breaks are a mix of stretching, self-reflection and guided meditation.
The five weeks Mindfulness program with Sophie equipped our team with meaningful tools. It was a great mix of different theory and practice by a trainer who was able to again and again adapt to the team's needs - thank you so much!
BUSINESS MEDITATION SCHOOL
Meditation is considered one of the most effective scientifically proven tools for reducing stress in everyday life and for promoting calm and creativity. Participants systematically learn about meditation, the philosophy behind it and its relevance in the modern working world. They learn different methods via direct experience and application. Each meditation can be practiced at home using a dedicated app.
MINDFUL EMPOWERMENT COURSE
My signature transformative 8-weeks-program based on mindfulness and neuroscience. An intense coaching course that has been shown to reduce stress by 38%, increase creativity by 19%, and increase the ability to focus by 16%.
We are all familiar with the concept of work-life balance and everything that belongs to it. But what if you could find a better balance during work? Here is where Mindfulness comes in for me. My days are usually long and often hectic, running from meeting to meeting and barely a chance for a lunch or even bio break. So I was looking for a way to re-charge quickly and easily during the day and not just after work. However, I wasn’t very successful until Sophie offered a little mindfulness session after the lunch break during a 4 day training. It took maybe 10 minutes, but already this little time helped me to overcome the usual “lunch coma”. Over time I learned more about Sophie’s mindfulness initiative within the company and had the chance to participate in a dedicated 45 minutes session that covered both the theory behind it as well as some practical exercises. And again I was astonished how you can achieve so much with so little regarding your own well-being.

What are the three main effects of mindfulness in a professional context?
What can our cooperation look like?
Your ability to focus is significantly strengthened by mindfulness. This correlates with increased productivity over the same time investment. Furthermore, it prevents the phenomenon of presenteeism, meaning "being present physically but not present mentally", which costs companies millions every year. Moreover, regular practice strengthens resilience to stress, which guarantees good mental health even in times of pressure and stress. Studies show that meditation reduces the volume of the stress center in the brain ("amygdala"). In addition, mindfulness promotes inner clarity and openness to new things, the prerequisite for making good decisions.
After your non-binding inquiry, we will discuss how I can best support you and your team in a subsequent preliminary meeting which is free of charge. For this purpose, I will ask you questions, and we will go over which format might best fit your strategy, your individual challenges, and preferences. If we're a good fit, I'll send you a proposal and we'll set up the final details.
What’s special about the Zen & Go mindfulness training?
I show you how to find more calm as you go about your fast-paced daily life. Many have heard of meditation or already practice it. However, as soon as the workday begins, they are back on autopilot, experiencing lack of focus, stress and reactive behavior. My method builds a bridge between mindfulness and the challenges of everyday work life. I demonstrate time-efficient methods that can be directly integrated into your daily work routine. Furthermore, you receive valuable impulses to raise what you are doing anyway to a higher level through mindfulness. No extra work needed - once the "mindfulness muscle" is strengthened, it can be used as a superpower at any time.
How can mindfulness help with the current situation (covid-19, home office)?
Rapid and unexpected change can throw us off track. Everyone has their own stimulus-response patterns when it comes to change. Often, these are emotionally charged. If the resulting processes such as resistance, fears, and insecurities are not consciously observed, they can have a destructive effect on behavior toward ourselves, our work, or others. Mindfulness includes a box of cognitive and emotional tools to see opportunities in change and tap into inner strength. These tools increase self-awareness and self-regulation. Moreover, the individual becomes more resilient to stress and change.
I have a specific idea of how I would like to integrate mindfulness into my team or event. Can I also request personalized formats?
I would first like to understand how mindfulness and the challenges of the workplace fit together in general. Is an info call possible?
Of course, there is no such thing as a standard program with me anyway. I always check in with you first, understanding your individual situation. Only then we define what will work best. Of course, we can also talk about formats that are not listed on the homepage, like supporting your organization becoming more mindfulness on a greater scheme (case study building to convince management, consulting on how to include mindfulness into HR strategy, internally building resources, etc.).
Very much so - because there are some AHA moments to be expected! In a non-binding call, I would be happy to introduce you to the powerful effects of mindfulness methods in fast-paced everyday life. For this purpose, I am using the latest neuroscientific findings as well as personal experiences from my years as a global marketing manager in a large corporation.
Can you support me individually to learn mindfulness on my own and integrate it into my daily life?
As a team, could we just give mindfulness a try?
On request, I also offer 1-1 coaching on the topic of mindfulness in everyday life. The goal is to develop an individual plan for you and to determine the methods and meditations that suit you and bring you joy. Based on your daily routine, your challenges, and preferences, I will create a program for you that will make your everyday life much more relaxed and bring your work achievements to a new level. The coaching consists of a 60-minute session, the development of a personalized plan for you, email support over the next 4 weeks, and a subsequent 60-minute follow-up session. In terms of pricing, this transformative package is currently at €360. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in learning more.
I offer a free 15-minute trial session in which you can experience the positive effects first-hand. To do so, feel free to contact me and we can discuss further details. No strings attached - if mindfulness isn't for you or your team, that's perfectly fine.
Do we, as a team, also receive resources that we can use afterward?
My 8-weeks mindful empowerment course includes materials that can be used afterwards. These include the mindful empowerment workbook, various recorded meditations for different situations in everyday life, as well as HD videos featuring yoga and mindfulness exercises. Additional content can be provided upon request.
