A Loving Space

“There is something wonderfully bold and liberating about saying yes to our entire imperfect and messy life.”

Hello lovely, so nice that you have found your way to me!

I am Anna Johanna, the founder of a loving space. I created this website in order to make use of my strengths and talents and to give advice and support to people on their paths of personal development.

I have studied Psychology and Cognitive Neurosciences in Göttingen and Munich, worked in children and youth psychiatry and in a psychiatrist’s office and am in the midst of becoming a cognitive behavioral psychotherapist for children and youths.


Accordingly, I’ve acquired a wealth of knowledge and experiences, which I want to make available for more people – independent and separate of diagnoses and therapies.

There are several projects I am doing this through: Online and offline coaching, meditations on insight timer, a monthly mindfulness newsletter. I’ve got loads of other ideas, which I will bring into being in the future.

My work is influenced by many wise, empathic and smart humans.
I call myself lucky to have learned from them and to be able to call some of these

youth psychiatrist Felix Brummer and my yogini Julia Freiberg.

These two seemingly very different people, though being very similar in their hearts, have taught me that silence is not to be feared. That strength has nothing to do with aggression. And that taking a deep breath and and checking your poise and approach can save a lot of effort.

Tara Brach introduced me to meditation in her book “Radical Acceptance” in an open and loving way. Her podcasts are wonderful soul strokers from which I take something new every time.
 
With his book “The body keeps the score” Bessel van der Kolk has confirmed my understanding of the body as inseparable from soul and psyche and has given me one more reason for my yoga and meditation passion.
 
Lacy Phillips has convinced me with her work of my very own inner strength. Thanks to her, my trust in myself, in Mother Earth and in the universe is stronger than ever before.

All these people, my personal lessons and professional experiences have prepared me wonderfully for transitioning into online coaching.

 
My heart, my intuition and my empathy guide me.
 
 
I am looking forward to getting to know you and to accompany you in your very own growth.
