I am a qualified and practicing Hypnotherapist, and within this role I’m especially passionate about working with women with the Fertile Body Method, and as a Fertility Coach and Menstrual Educator.
I am very pleased to now be offering A Celebration Day for Girls in Portugal to support girls and their mothers during this very important and foundational transition.
I live in the beautiful Cascais area of Lisbon, and am inspired every day by my mother and my daughter, and the women I work with.

I was born in Dresden, a picturesque town in eastern Germany but have ever since lived in various places, including Portugal, Brazil and New Zealand, and have travelled and volunteered around the world.
Growing up I was an adventurous girl with a vivid imagination, I loved to craft, learn new things and spend time in nature. Originally I was educated in Architecture, the arts and stage design (Master Degree) in Berlin and Düsseldorf, but I changed carrer paths in 2012 to further study Elemental Yoga, Mindfullness, Meditation and other philosophies and holistic approaches in Spain, Thailand, India and Australia. As a certified Yoga and Meditation Teacher and Abdominal Massage Therapist my specific passion lies in movement and empowering people through the means of their own body‘s wisdom. In the last few years my project „Yogabem“ became more and more about teaching women how to practice Yoga and Meditation in tune with their monthly cycles and nature, and support themselves through self care and nourishing vegan/vegetarian food. I run creativity, cooking and movement workshops with kids and adults. Living out my passion of collecting stories, I started a blog interviewing people that inspire me – especially women. The latest project is a podcast called „Magnificent Mermaids“ that introduces „women who make things happen“. I think this is important because women‘ s stories, projects and ideas are neglected in our culture. There is a lack of positive female role models for girls which I am seeking to change.
Learning about my own cycle and the cycles in nature has showed me so much about myself, gave me strenght and acceptance of who I am and made me the person that I am now. Growing up as a girl there was a lot of confusion around my body image. In the post-socialist culture the experience of „not talking about things“ really shaped my experience as a young girl negatively – now I want to talk openly about everything. I believe an open and shameless communication can only benefit our relationships with kids, parters and ultimately everyone else.
When running A Celebration Days for Girls I experience the immense joy of inspiring in girls a positive body image, emotional resilience and a growing self-esteem and therefore freedom of expression. I am inspired to do this work by the girls and many strong women that surrounded me near and far. I believe that creating safe spaces for women and girls holds a big potential : as we give time to touch and inspire another, to feel connected and learn together, and step by step grow stronger – individually and as a society.
