Career & Life
Find new balance and enjoyment by successfully navigating career (and life!) change
Hi! I’m Gabriela
You want to enjoy your job and feel useful – work to you is more than just making a living. You have come a long way and are standing at a crossroads. What is the right way forward? How can you find more balance in your life – doing stimulating and impactful work (for example in the non-profit or public sector), but also having the space and time for what matters most to you? Has the moment come to make a bold change?
If you are feeling unfulfilled and discouraged in your current situation, and if you've been thinking about giving your professional life a new direction – you don’t have to do this alone. If you are unsure and fearful about where to go from here and how to get there – reach out for the support of a coach. If your first attempts at change have made you lose your self-confidence and start doubting yourself – that is very normal. I will help you regain your focus and move forward in your career transition.
Coaching is based on the premise that we already have within ourselves all the solutions to our questions. As an internationally trained Certified Professional Coach (ICF ACC), I use proven techniques to help you uncover your own answers, and I partner with you to ensure you follow through on your intentions.
By working with me, you will get clear on what you want the next phase of your career (and life) to look like. With my support, you will define – and then actually take – the steps needed to create your future. You will come out with new confidence in yourself and in your very own path.
Let me help you transition towards the balance between professional enjoyment, healthy challenge, personal wellbeing and space that you've been looking for.
Life is short – craft your own happiness!

Your coaching package
I offer tailor-made packages of variable durations, starting from 3 sessions.
As coaching is a process that requires a minimum level of focus, commitment and consistency to yield sustainable results, I recommend an engagement of at least 4 to 5 months.
While meeting every 2 to 3 weeks is an ideal rhythm, we will adapt our frequency to your needs.
A session lasts 75 minutes.
Depending on the package, the session rate is between 140 and 200 CHF.
You will be investing in your own growth.
The chemistry between the coach and the coachee is one of the most important factors for coaching to be effective. It is vital that you feel comfortable working with me. Schedule a complimentary discovery call so we can get to know each other and see if we click. Then you decide – no strings attached.
"I have been working with Gabriela for the past few months and have already seen such a positive impact on my personal and professional growth. Gabriela asks the right questions that lead me to make very solid decisions. Thanks to her valuable guidance and support, I have been able to focus, prioritize, and establish healthy boundaries. Also, having been able to look at problems from a different perspective has enabled me to find very meaningful solutions to them. Gabriela is an exceptional coach whom I highly recommend to anyone seeking to make a positive change in their lives."

I am no stranger to change and reinvention – I've gone through many transitions in my life and career. The three childhood years I spent in the US awakened my urge for cultural exchange and exploration. Years later, MA in International Relations in my pocket, I ventured out into the world of international humanitarian and development cooperation, working in contexts of fragility and conflict in Africa and Asia. This journey allowed me to make friends with change and uncertainty. It also taught me much about what we all share as human beings – the pursuit of happiness. Whatever that may mean to us individually.
Nearly ten years later, in 2014, I returned to my home country Switzerland and ended up repivoting my career. Pursuing my passion to support others in navigating transition and tackling new endeavors, I became a career advisor and certified coach. I find great joy in partnering with individuals who want more out of life!
I am based in Bern. Get in touch so we can discuss if meeting online or in person is ideal. The get-to-know call or meetup with me is always free of charge and without obligation. I look forward to getting to know you!
