I’m Anke.

Who’s Anke?

Whilst I love my corporate career, being ‘just’ in corporate was never enough for me. I have a passion for helping people.
After having spent so many years working in Human Resources, I did realise a few things:
  • Wherever I’ve worked, all people are similar. Regardless of their background or the country they work in, their worries and feelings are all the same.
  • In life, we all encounter similar things, both positive and negative.
  • Some of these things may throw us off track for a while, so that we need or want a break from work.
  • But when we want to return to work, so many of us have again similar-ish hurdles to overcome:
    doubt, fear, confusion and sometimes guilt.
I never had a career break myself for a longer time, but I have dealt with so many applicants who had one.
They have such great experience which would benefit a lot of companies. But due to their overwhelming feelings of doubt, fear and confusion, they are not able to present themselves to the job market to the best of their ability.
And this is such a shame!!
What if it did not matter that you took time off to study, travel, have children, care for a loved one, even if you lost your job or simply wanted a break?
Whatever the reason for your career break was, let’s move on and let me help YOU to get the job and pay you want after your career break.
Imagine how you would feel if you had a fun job that you love with excellent pay that lets you live exactly the life you want.
I think you owe it to yourself to give it a try.

  • I love Anke. I have worked with her for six weeks only and she has changed my life. I was wondering about how to address my promotion that I was promised to me. I got so anxious because nothing happened. Anke has shown me how I can take charge of my feelings and actions and address my manager. So in less than a week, I have gotten my formal promotion and a payrise! Absolutely love it. Thank you, Anke

  • I've been working with Anke for about 9 months now, and the whole experience has been revelatory and wonderful. I began coaching sessions with her because of my stress with my work, but our work has evolved to improve my sleep habits, my attitudes toward my body, and how to treat myself with kindness. Through it all Anke has been committed to helping me grow on my own terms — suggesting new ways to look at my life, but always letting me propel my own progress. She has helped me realize the ays in which I want to change my life and has given me the tools to reframe my perspectives. At least once a session I'm speechless because she has made me think of my life and my choices in a way that I had never imagined before. I cannot recommend working with her enough. Her caring, but no-nonsense approach to coaching has been one of the best things I've ever done. Thanks Anke!

  • Anke saved me. I started working with her when the family dynamics in our household were at a very low point with seemingly no hope of improving. Anke's compassionate but matter-of-fact approach helped shift my perspective - and therefore my actions. Working with Anke grounded me, and gave me a path back to a better relationship with my two teenagers and an often absent husband. She armed me with tools, mantras, realism and hope. She was always accessible and utilized "tough love" when I needed it. I was a "doubter" about lifestyle coaching until I worked with Anke and found out how much of a positive difference she can make!

  • I have been working with Anke for the past three months on my crazy stress levels that I thought were caused by my executive role and being a mum of twins. I had lots of health problems and the relationships with my family got worse by the week because I was so exhausted and overwhelmed.

    After my doctor told me that I should be taking a break, my alarm went off and I started looking for solutions. I came across Anke, who offered me a free consult call to see what all this coaching is about. At that point, I believed coaching was only for super fancy people. Anke made me think otherwise, even after our first call. With her funny and no BS approach, she proved not only my beliefs wrong, but she managed to enable me to enjoy my job again, have a much better relationship with my family and she also helped me putting some exercise into my day and decrease my blood pressure! I am so thrilled.

  • I came across Anke through a friend. A few months ago, I was at a point, where I could not sleep anymore because my work caused me so much stress. My relationship with my boss reached a really low point, I totally lost my motivation and I tried to look for another job without success. I was so frustrated.

    After working with Anke for several weeks, I managed to have an improved relationship with my boss and also find the energy to look for a new role which was more aligned with my interests and financial requirements.

    The coaching with Anke was so much fun and extremely insightful! I have learned so much.
