People I meet for the first time often ask me: "Is your name really Cinderella?" Yes, I actually do. Together with my son, I live in Berlin, the city in whose heart I was born and grew up.
I have often been told that I am a very good listener and that I have a calm, clear and confidence-inspiring quality. I suppose I owe these skills to my childhood and youth in the Kreuzberg restaurant trade. From a young age, I overheard many stories from the guests of my mother, who ran a bar and restaurant in Kreuzberg. The guests would pour their hearts out at the bar while I sat next to them doing my homework.
In my later professional life in the Berlin techno business as a barmaid in the Watergate club and as a DJ booker for the Mobilee label or in my press, personnel and production jobs for creative agencies, I always had a lot to do with creative people.
When I look back on the many different stages in my life today, I realize that I have always enjoyed listening to people, advising them and working with them to find solutions. So becoming a therapist and coach was a natural step for me.
I have long been fascinated by the holistic view of the human being that underlies alternative and Far Eastern medicine. For me, body, mind and soul form an inseparable unit in which everything interacts and is mutually dependent.
Bodywork, especially Transformative Bodywork, has inspired me from my very first session. As a long time rather top-heavy and analytical type, the direct experience with my own body brought me "home" in a short time to a part of myself that I had neglected for a long time. For the first time, I was able to feel myself as a unit and release hidden energies and potential to recover from old wounds and gain strength and self-confidence for new paths. I wish every person this experience and would like to enable and pass it on to you as your coach.
I firmly believe that it is possible for everyone to reach their full potential. If everything is allowed to flow, if the flow is right, then the magic of life can take over and give us wings.
Mit der Gründung von Free The Qi! zusammen mit meinem langjährigen Freund und Kollegen Johannes Braun erfüllt sich für mich ein Herzenswunsch: Die Verbindung von Body, Mind & Soul als revolutionärer Therapie- und Coachingansatz.
From my own experience, I know how powerful the interplay of body, mind and soul is for the healing process and coaching success and how much potential lies hidden within us, just waiting to be awakened.
About my work
My passion and expertise lies in therapeutic work with the body. As a Transformative Bodywork Coach and alternative practitioner for psychotherapy, I offer various methods that focus on the body. The training in Transformative Bodywork with Sophie Kinkel allows me to train you in body awareness and empower you to recognize and let go of limiting patterns on your own. Through training in the Trauma Buster Technique with Rehana Webster, we can work on your traumas effectively and sustainably - without sending you into protracted, re-traumatizing processes.
I learned and deepened my knowledge of general coaching basics and the client-centered approach of Carl Rogers, which is very important to me, during my training for coaching and personal development at the arche medica school of alternative practitioners and continued my training as a systemic coach. With my healing license as a non-medical practitioner for psychotherapy from the Berlin Health Department, I can and may accompany you psychotherapeutically and support you with my knowledge of mental health. Curious as I am, I like to keep learning, educating myself and bringing fresh knowledge into my sessions.
The collaboration in my coaching sessions is always at eye level, respectful, with calm, clarity and humor. Let's raise your potential together! "Like a sun in the sky. Spread your wings, fly. We're going high!" (Little Simz)
What my coachees say
By working with Cinderella, I get to know myself in an unexpected depth and honesty and discover potentials and sides of myself that were previously hidden. Her empathetic and direct manner makes it easy for me to let go and embark on a journey of discovery, healing and growth. My physical and emotional experience during our sessions has an intensity that I have never experienced before and that touches me deeply. I am incredibly happy to have found this support on my path. Thank you!

Cini was a wonderful ally in my healing journey during covid lockdown and unemployment, where my body was collapsing and traumas from over 20 years back were coming up to be seen. She took so much time for me (which no doctor would do then) and with each session I felt the change happen in my body. A wonderful space holder and gentle practitioner, with A LOT of knowledge! Can highly recommend 🙂

Through the energy work with Cini, I have become more aware of the physical patterns that occur in me in stressful situations. I can recognize them better and better and then react accordingly. It is fascinating to work with Cini on releasing these patterns and the accumulated energy and how it feels when the energy flows. I would recommend everyone to try it out for themselves.
