Senior Trainer & Coach & Mentor


“To move the entire world, you must first move yourself.” /Socrates/

“I am very pleased that I can support my clients not only to achieve their goals and dreams but also to find their inner happiness, peace, and quiet, in my opinion, the key moments for success at work and personal life.”  

Most often, my clients appreciate the following:

  • My Respect for their individuality, personal values, and goals
  • My Empathy and Supportive atmosphere during coaching sessions as well as during the training
  • My Openness and Sense of humour
  • My Ability to listen, inspire them to explore new perspectives, and motivate them towards the objective
  • My High professionalism and years of practical experience

I have been a trainer and consultant since 1994, becoming a professional coach in 1997. Since then, I use the coaching approach also in training and workshops. My current coaching practice contains more than 1.860 hours.

I have been a member of the International Coach Federation since 2007, certified in 2011 as PCC – Professional Certificated Coach, and working as a Mentor for coaches as well.

In 2014 – 2015 I was a President of the ICF Czech Republic Charter Chapter (ICF ČR), which inter alia enabled me to meet in person with top coaches and representatives of ICF, establish many personal friendships in an international context and share experiences from around the world. As a Past President, I was a member of the Commission on Ethics of coaching ICF Czech Republic.

I am a professional coach certified by Erickson College International, a graduate of the accredited training – The Art and Science of Coaching, Family Coaching, and Deep Coaching led by Mrs Marilyn Atkinson. I also graduated from the following accredited pieces of training: Sir John Whitmore – Emotional Intelligence in Leadership and Coaching and John Whittington – Fundamentals of Coaching and Systemic Constellations.

Last but not least, I am a happy mom of three skilled children.
