Hi I'm Johannes, mentor for transformation processes

About me

As a mentor for transformation processes, systemic coach and psychotherapeutic alternative practitioner, I offer my clients a wide range of help, clarification and support services, which I underpin with the authentic experiences of my own life. Born in Berlin, one of my formative childhood and adolescent experiences was growing up in a Christian fundamentalist sect, a toxic environment into which I was born and which has left a lasting mark on me. And even though I left this sect on my own as a young adult, growing up in this environment anchored destructive patterns in me that led to constant exhaustion and dysfunctionality in everyday life and a depressive illness.

I worked through the causes of this in the course of many years of psychotherapy, during which I learned that depression can be cured and how. After leaving the sect, I turned my love of music into a career, followed by almost three decades in the music and event industry. Since the early 90s I have been DJing in many Berlin clubs, and in 2002 I co-founded the Berlin club Watergate. From 2005 onwards, as a tour manager for internationally successful bands and DJs such as Booka Shade and Tiga, I organized and carried out tours and performances all over the world and created a perfect logistical infrastructure for creative performances for my clients with commitment and attentiveness.

In 2015, I gave up traveling as a tour manager and worked for another 3 years as an event manager in top gastronomy. There, too, mindful interaction with my team was always of immense importance to me. In 2018, I therefore decided to underpin my professional experience with systemic coaching training at The Coaching Club in order to be able to pass on my structural knowledge and experience to people working in the creative industries and gastronomy. However, it was above all the many years of dealing with my own depressive illness and healing from it that subsequently prompted me to train as a psychotherapeutic alternative practitioner at the arche medica alternative practitioner school, which I successfully completed in October 2020 with an official examination by the Berlin health authority.

At the beginning of 2021, I decided to include the topic of "sect exit" in my therapeutic portfolio, so that I can now help people in similarly challenging life situations with my experience and knowledge. In 2022, I founded Free The Qi! with my partner Cinderella Baksa-Soós, in which we combine mental and somatic coaching and thus offer our clients a booster on their way to their full potential with our joint work. On my life's journey, I have been able to learn from and with myself how great our potential for healing and self-empowerment is, a process that makes me deeply happy and is far from over.

About my work

I am happy to offer you my knowledge and experience to help you maintain a balance between creative chaos, economic challenges and mental health: I will meet you where you are in life. Always full of respect and mindfulness, always at eye level. With my training as a systemic coach, I can work with you to develop a new perspective on your life situation, develop new ideas and recognize existing resources. My training as an NLP practitioner enables me to bring existing knowledge and emotions from the subconscious to the surface with you through conversations and exercises, as well as to anchor new insights deep within you.

My training as a psychotherapeutic alternative practitioner allows me to go on a deep search with you for beliefs and patterns in order to work on them with you, but also to impart knowledge and show you possibilities that can help you to cope with everyday life in specific crises. The basis of my approach is my humanistic view of man, which is reflected in the application of person-centered conversation psychotherapy according to Carl R. Rogers in my work with my clients. Accordingly, I work with a resource-oriented approach in order to use this focus to promote your self-healing powers for self-realization, towards experiencing your wholeness and your full potential.

My life path, my personal experiences and skills and my resulting authentic attitude enable me to create and hold a space for you in which you can discover emotions, express thoughts and juggle ideas without judgment. As a result of these processes, you will be able to find new paths and realize and live your potential better than before, because my goal is and always has been to make things better. With you and for you!

Let me be the tour manager of your Highest Potential!
