about me

Hello my name is Greta.
I’m a generalist and connector.

I have shapeshifted and recreated my self
and my work many times these last 10 years
as I move closer and closer to expressing
what’s at my core
in a way that can be understood and received.

I have followed my curiosity across continents and countries
Turned my life upside down and left my safe harbours
I’m brave and sometimes shy
Think a lot
and see everything along a continuum
Great at creating strong, long term relationships
Cheerleader, eternal optimist
and a dedicated follower of the river of life.

I worked long term in corporate marketing
I’m a web copy writer
An email marketer
A website builder
A teacher
A coach
and facilitator
Studied Geography
regenerative ecological design
and the systems view of life
systemic constellations
the neuroscience of coaching
and the art of hosting conversations that matter.

Perhaps this poem by Mary Oliver does a better job at summing up my values than anything else ever could:

Wild Geese

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
 the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting—
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

Some testimonials

Greta is incredibly deft at applying her broad range of skills to her coaching sessions. It feels like being lovingly held, encouraged and challenged all at the same time. She is wise, emotionally intelligent and brilliant. We recently worked through an almost devastating challenge in my business that found me ready to quit all together. Thanks to her sessions I feel quietly confident about the future and refocused, I am very grateful for her support.

Greta is a dynamic facilitator, with great skill at holding space in a room, encouraging openness, and sparking conversation. Her meticulous planning and experience leads to insight and she is an excellent collaborator. If you are looking for a creative, compassionate, incisive partner, Greta is your person!

Working with Greta has paved the way for a profound shift in my thinking and confidence. I would describe her coaching methods as intuitive and grounding. Our sessions have brought me closer to my values, and I find that I can now make decisions with greater ease and effectiveness. Our coaching work has helped me dissolve feelings of confusion and heaviness surrounding my life's work, and have sparked some much-welcomed lightness and joyful commitment.

Navigating the complex terrains of life is challenging. Flourishing within them, even more: it demands attunement with inner and outer worlds, as well as both the skills and courage to take agency within them. As a coach, Greta creates and holds spaces which support and nourish this process. She builds these spaces upon and through a warm, generous presence, and sharp focus. Her unique approach seamlessly weaves together variegated tools and perspectives which ground and bring clarity to difficult situations. Greta has supported me for many years and in many ways, both personally and professionally. The tools she has passed on to me hold true and strong, and help me, to this day, to find my own anchor in stormy weather. After every session with Greta, I feel inspired, energised, calm, more grounded, and more hopeful. As a dancer and pharmacist, I particularly appreciate and value Greta’s connection with somatic practices and embodied knowledge underpinned by her knowledge and experience in the neuroscience of coaching. As an independent creative, I value Greta’s superb facilitation and communication skills, which have supported me to sharpen my own skills, to discover and to share, more confidently, my voice as an artist and maker. Whether in a moment of transition, facing ambiguity or uncertainty, or simply in need of fine tuning, I absolutely and whole-heartedly recommend Greta to coach you through!

Greta and Johannes provided me with a full scale website design and creation, with brand design and features like mailing, booking, and blogging integration. From the beginning I felt confident in Greta, she has a steady, professional manner and was transparent about the process and the timescales, all of which were exactly as described and the deadline was met on the day! I will use Greta's services again no doubt and highly recommend her work. I would like to add that I was very happy with the colours, the branding and design work by Johannes and although I only communicated directly with Greta, I feel that as a team they have helped me to create an image and platform that my clients can connect with and that I can work easily with.

Is it me you’re looking for?

I’m not everyone’s cup of tea, here are some notes to help you find out if I’m yours.

– I’m a facilitator and a coach who will help you find your own clarity and wisdom rather than tell your what you should do. I will only give you my opinion if you ask for it.

– I will however point out when there are contradictions between what you say you want to do and what you are doing. This will help you to figure out what’s true for you.

– I see everything from multiple angles and can always argue at least two sides to each situation.

– I’m warm and positive and will tend to create a playful atmosphere even when dealing with the most serious issues.

– I have been self employed for 10 years, working alone and with others. I thrive in environments where I can follow my own creativity and not have to follow petty rules.

– I have 15+ years’ experience in marketing, writing and website content-creation, web development and website management.

– My toolbox includes Art of Hosting practices, life-coaching informed by neurobiology, systemic constellations and systems theory.

– I work with a group of amazing creatives to bring you well rounded services that ensure you can concentrate on what you do best.

– I love bringing things to their essence and reframing stories so that they can be easily understood and received.
