About me

Your coach – Beate Nink (Dipl. Psych.)

Beate NinkAre you looking for a counselor who can draw on wide-reaching experience? I am a business coach and a supervisor (DGSv) with 20 years of professional counseling experience.

I have worked with people from different professions at my practice in Friedrichshain, Berlin since 2001. People at the start of their careers, others with a lot of experience already, people in junior positions facing their first management tasks and people in senior positions, employees, freelancers and entrepreneurs.

I studied psychology and am a qualified gestalt therapist. Since 1997, I have worked with my partner as a therapist at the Beratungshaus Friedrichshain. I incorporate my years of experience as a therapist in my coaching sessions, as well as creative methods attained from my first job as an ergotherapist.

I was born in Berlin in 1963. Straight-talking and an open, cordial manner have always been part of me. I see myself as someone who can motivate, boost confidence, trigger ideas an give feedback honestly.

My strengths lie in an area that many of my clients struggle with: Recognizing their talents and mobilizing their resources. Many of them appreciate the benevolent nature of my sessions where they have freedom to develop their ideas.

I have always been fascinated by people who dare to do something new in career terms, who take risks and follow their own path. I am happiest if my coaching sessions can help people to fly high, realize their career dreams and personal goals.

An overview of my current professional activities:

  • Coach, supervisor und organization consultant in my own practice (since 2001)
  • Teaching supervisor (Supervisor trainer since 2013)
