Start Living your Best Life with Self-Actualization Coaching

Why self-actualization coaching?

Self-Actualization Coaching is designed to help you to start living your best life.

Born out of the positive psychology movement, Self-Actualization Coaching focuses on how positive changes can be achieved, rather than why things are the way they are and what caused them.

With this approach, it offers an alternative to traditional therapy and can be especially useful to those, who have not reached the results they hoped for with psychoanalysis or cognitive behavioural therapy.

It is practical, works with small and concrete steps, which can cause significant changes and can help anyone to work towards becoming the best version of themselves, and to develop and explore their full potential.

What Self-Actualization can look like in Practice


Being open and able to give and receive unconditional love.

To experience freedom, purpose and joy in every aspect of your life.
Being able to tap into genius or flow, a state of true knowing, connectedness and creativity, easily.
To be free of prejudice and judgement, and to forgive easily.
To live centred in yourself and in your connection to the universe/god/source/life energy.
Knowing and understanding yourself and being able to communicate your needs, desires and boundaries easily.

Processing and feeling your feelings so that you have the clarity and the freedom to react to a situation and not to your past.

We are all able to live this way. In fact, I believe that this is our natural state of being.

Through cultural and personal conditioning, trauma, limits and learned behaviours we have removed ourselves from this state, but can come back and fully regain this state through deep- inquiry, living true to oneself and with the help of Self-Actualization Coaching.

To see that our world is spectacular and perfect, so is every being in it and so are you.

To be hopeful and to have the faith to see that we are all striving towards wholeness and balance.


To live a happy and balanced life.

Why am I a good coach for you?

Apart from my formal qualifications, I have also been practising what I teach for some years now. Like any (self-actualizing) person, I continue to learn and grow and see an opportunity for that in every encounter.

I will never meet you or anyone thinking, that I have it all figured out and can show you the way, but I am here to guide you to find your own way and will gladly teach you the tools and skills that you need for that.

This whole process came to me very easily, naturally and I love what I do. I love living this way and l’d love to share these easy steps with you so that you can overcome fears, doubts and limitations and start living your best life with love and being true to yourself for the rest of your life.

I live by the saying: “Knowledge that is not in your body is just a rumour.” (this comes from the Asaro tribe)

I’m not about spreading rumours.

Everything I teach and share with you, I have tried myself and I know that it works.

Self-Actulization Coaching with Verena

How do you know if Self-Actualization Coaching is right for you?

I honestly think that there is no one, who would not benefit from self-actualization coaching.

If you want to know if I’m the right person, you can look around on this website, read the blog or follow me on Social Media.

I built this website myself, I wrote all the texts, I took many of the pictures. My love is in all that you find here and I’d be more than happy to meet you with love as well.

Booking a free appointment with me to see if we are a good fit is completely risk-free. No obligations, just an exploration.

But I also have to warn you:

Working with me is not going to be effective, if you are not willing to go deep and be completely honest with yourself (and me).

You have to be ready to explore new ways and to get out of your comfort zone.

Apart from that openness, you won’t need to bring anything.

I’d be happy to meet you, wherever and however you are, without judgement.

Why self-actualization coaching?

Many people don’t even see how much they are suffering because everyone around them is facing the same hardships. I was one of these people for a very long time.

I thought: Everybody is stressed, why should I be able to not feel that way, it’s how the world works these days.

Or: Getting sick is something that happens to me, why would I be able to prevent it? Everybody gets sick, what does that have to do with me?

I struggled with shame, with anxieties, and tried to blame my circumstances or my upbringing for the things that I wasn’t happy with, in my life.

I tried to find solutions on the outside instead of looking in to solve them.

I thought being happy and fulfilled was for other people, not for me.

But none of that is true. I experienced that first hand and I see it in more and more people every day. And I hope you will get to experience it too. 

PS: I still remember my own fears, before I started to embark on this journey:

I was afraid it would mean that things would actually change (funny, huh?). I did not know what would happen if I broke with old patterns, and that scared me.

I was also afraid that I would lose friends (which I did, but I also found new ones).

I was afraid to admit to myself that I have been hooked on many illusions, and that I would have to admit that to others as well.

And I was afraid that the fact that if I then changed my behaviour because of that, I would also implicitly show others that they are hooked on illusions as well. (I saw that as a bad thing because I was so afraid to criticize anyone)

More than anything, I was afraid of hurting other people’s feelings, of making them uncomfortable, by making changes that were good and necessary for me to be me.

I was afraid to take up space to make decisions for myself and to do something so radically different for myself.

I’m so glad I did it anyway.


We want to be safe at all cost, and we wish to please and belong, this is how we are as human beings and this is why it is so important to have a coach and/or other people to support us on this journey.

I had and have my own teachers, coaches and guides and I’m happy to now be the person to cheer you on and support you in your growth and on your journey to becoming your true and best self, to discover your full potential, to live a life filled with love.

I do that knowing that not only can this transform your life, it will empower you to inspire transformation in many other people as well.


I cannot encourage you enough to make this first step and to discover that so much more is possible for you than you might be able to imagine right now.

I wouldn’t have believed it, if somebody had told me how I’d feel today, five years ago. Surprise yourself. It will be worth it.

„I had a virtual meeting with Verena, and I felt really safe and comfortable opening up about my struggles with Verena.
She is such a good listener and she shared with me a list of practical and efficient tools/solutions to change my mindset and the way I talk to myself. It was eye-opening. I totally recommend talking to her - her expertise can be a precious resource for everyone!“ - Francesco

I am at a stage in my life where I can (and want to) make a shift, but struggle envisioning the right direction to take and the action needed. Verena helped me to focus on my desires and what is keeping me stuck. Her approach is sympathetic, calm and down-to earth. It felt like she truly wanted to work with me towards my goals and my wellbeing, through small, concrete steps and kindness. She made me feel more confident, and now the change seems more approachable. – Elena

Verena holds compassion for herself and for me, listens and allows space and treats me as an equal.
She shows up with curiosity & presence, reminds me to listen to what's important to me, suggests simple, manageable practices, giving me concrete things to work with, all in one 60-minute call. Thank you again for this gift! – em

I always admired Verena's ability to bring together people of very diverse backgrounds and give others the space and the freedom to be who they are and to express themselves. It was amazing to watch her transform her life and herself and become much happier in the process. – Corinna

I’m so thankful for the email you sent yesterday about being a conscious digital citizen. 🙂 It really sparked my day and I must have agreed with every word you said […] maybe even more as I am opening up to start presenting my thoughts and work online to wider audiences, it is so important to be concise about adequate behaviour in the digital world and lead by example 😉 Thank you for reminding me of that! 🙂 😉 – Luisa

The three Elements of well-being:

Physical Well-being // Body

To fulfil our physiological needs, we need enough sleep, good food and enough exercise.

We also need a safe place to live and be.

I always think of Virginia Woolf's quote: “A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.”

Mental Well-being // Mind

Our mental well-being is usually linked to our physical well-being and vice versa.

Once we know how to take care of ourselves in terms of food, sleep and exercise, we can learn to develop a strong and positive relationship with ourselves mentally as well.

We can start to change and train the way we think of ourselves, ...

Relational Well-being // Soul

The work always starts with ourselves, but ends with being able to be fully present in community.

But once our inner work is (mostly) done, we can safely, lovingly and joyfully be with others and inspire and uplift.

We can learn to live in the freedom ...
