Hi, I am Alexa von Hase
Stories exist to be told, A tale which fails to be imparted onto further generations is a loss to all. My story is one of many fiercely self-determined women.
For 15 years I worked in brand communications and marketing for big corporations like adidas and Zalando. I climbed the corporate ladder with great determination, and was managing big teams and budgets. After my maternity leave I was told that the promotion promised to me at the company I was still employed at would not be mine after all. Eventually it emerged the company had mixed up the exact date that I would be returning post-baby. The system was to blame.
Simultaneously, I didn’t find the clichéd single-minded purpose new mothers are supposed to find in their new role, and suddenly I was facing pressures I could never have foreseen. Society’s image of the mother role, as well as my personal idea of what kind of mother I had to be, made me feel so claustrophobic that I could barely breathe at times.
It took a process and a fair amount of time to redefine my sense of self in this situation.
It has since occurred to me that I needed this exact personal turbulence to fully recognise myself, and to establish what it is that I want for myself — and my legacy.
My mission as an empowerment coach is to support women in finding back to their internal strength, to integrate self-care and acceptance so that no amount of external or internal forces can impose on this liberated sense of self. My work and the people whom I encounter are my inspiration and drive.
I have acquired my method of coaching and relevant know-how at the renowned Dr. Bock Coaching Academy. This academy is one of the few institutes that complies to and teaches according to the strict guidelines of the ICF (International Coaching Federation). The approach, developed by the founder Dr. Petra Bock, follows a strict client-centric, multi-method model of coaching, aligning classic and contemporary state-of-the-art methods.
