Birgit Becker

I'm a qualified Co-Active Coach, working from London, and coaching in English and German. I combine honesty (verging on bluntness) with an acceptance of other people's lives - regardless how messy. I strive for authenticity and a good portion of humour to tackle the challenges of every day life.

I enjoy working with people who want to get to know themselves better and who are ready to create changes in their lives. In case you are wondering about what that means, these are some of the outcomes for my clients: 

“During the coaching session, I was able to describe and grasp what’s going on inside of me in a clarity that had escaped me before.”

“The exercises that we did and the insights that I gained during the coaching sessions have allowed me to become much more self-assured. I don’t get frazzled, I generally don’t take things personally anymore and I’m able to express my opinion calmly and to get my point across. Coaching has changed my attitude and I’m able to react appropriately and effectively without having to bend over backwards or trying to be someone that I’m not.”

Corporate Career - Career Coaching

My professional life started out in a global corporation. First, in a country unit juggling profitability and sales targets. Then, on a global level, setting global standards, dealing with virtual teams, training people and developing a light touch in diplomacy.

It is very easy to get caught up in daily work-life and have the business years just fly by. In order to actively take charge of your career, it is essential to take time to reflect on your own work and where you want to take it. In coaching sessions, we use dedicated and focussed time to bring out your values and strengths and develop strategies on how to live them in daily life as well as how to honor them on your future path.

Large corporations may have their draw-backs, but they also offer almost unlimited opportunities - you just need to dare ask for them and take advantage of them. Coaching will help you become clear on what it is that you want to ask for or work towards.

Future Mom - Hopefully

It took me a very long time to come to terms with my wish to become a mother and publicly admitting this desire. It may not happen - biology doesn't seem to support me. But I have managed to consolidate my previously conflicting views on either being a professional woman or a good mother and can now face the lengthy process with hope (and a necessary portion of humour) rather than anguish.
More on this in "Maybe Baby".

I look forward to working with you!
