About me

I have a dream …

…one which is to help you clarify your true desires and to reconnect with your authentic self. Five years ago I was caught up in a mental prison. I felt helpless and suffered from severe anxiety. I could see no way out of my troubled relationship with my partner.

It was then that I discovered Non Violent Communication and The Work of Byron Katie. I applied the practical tools of NVC in my every day life and they helped me align myself with my true authentic self. The positive impact that NVC had on my life and my emotional recovery was so powerful that I felt compelled to share this method with others.

I don’t believe in the Inevitable. We all have the power within us to create the life we truly desire. My mission is to accompany you on your path to a life of heightened awareness, one  that is more aligned with your goals and passions and one over which you have full control.


After obtaining a Joint Honours degree in Ethnology and Linguistics, I decided to follow my passion for languages and people and began my career teaching French as a foreign language.

Following a few years living and working in France, Canada, Argentina and Sweden, I settled in Geneva where I met my partner. At the birth of our first child in 2014, my partner and I experienced a crisis in our relationship which would transform our lives for the better. Moving forward, I decided to train for a period of four years with some of the world’s leading teachers of the Non Violent Communication method created by Marshall Rosenberg and the work of Byron Katie on the transformation of thoughts.

I completed my training by taking part in training seminars held at the Life Coach School in the US in order to become a Life Coach. Since 2018, I run workshops on Non Violent Communication and coach my clients on their personal and professional life goals.

My mission

To help you regain control over your life, to uncover the realm of possibilities available to you and accompany you on your journey to making your dreams a reality.

A programme in three steps:

An understanding of your situation, your aspirations and your projects.

Empathetic listening, rewording, articulating your needs.

Becoming aware of mental blockages and opening up to new perspectives.

Overcoming negative thought patterns and limiting belief systems.

Reprogramming your thoughts and setting a strategic, effective and focused pathway towards your goals.

My commitments

I believe in the power of connection with Self to regain confidence and emotional freedom to help you cope with every situation in life.

My mission is to

  • motivate and inspire you to change your thought patterns
  • remove any mental blockages and self-sabotaging beliefs
  • shift your perspectives and develop a Possibility mindset

I will help you gain clarity to limit negative-thinking patterns and support you on your journey to unlock your full potential.

I believe that a coaching programme is the best way for you to gain a better understanding of your situation and your circumstances


Johanna has coached me when I was experiencing real crises in both my personal and professional life. Her support has been invaluable, particularly during these last few difficult months…

She has an extraordinary ability to create an immediate connection with her clients in a way that is warm, friendly and non-judgmental. Her approach is a combination of real empathy and pragmatism; she has strong listening skills and formulates her questions in such a way you feel confident and comfortable enough to ‘dig deep’ to recognize and articulate deep-rooted issues that can affect your overall well-being.
As part of my coaching sessions with her, she helped me turn negative thought patterns I didn’t even realise were influencing my decisions and everyday life, into positive ones. She did this simply by asking the right questions and guiding me through unexplored but more positive thought processes which have really helped me transform and create better habits for myself . I always feel so much better and happier after a coaching session with Johanna; it always feels as if a weight has been lifted. I would strongly recommend her!

I have had many different types of therapy and coaching before but was really impressed by how effective Johanna’s approach was. In just a couple of sessions she managed to help me clear blockages and negative thinking around some very tough topics. She is also an extraordinarily empathic and warm person who immediately put me at ease. I would wholeheartedly recommend Johanna to anyone who feels stuck and wants to move forward in their lives.
