What my Clients Have to Say

“Coaching with Ms Pachabeyan has been a great preparation for my new job as an executive – thanks for that!

... Our collaboration was determined by mutual respect. It was very helpful in terms of helping me focus more on the challenges I was facing. I left every single session with the feeling of having taken another step into the right direction.”

C.K., 37, head of department at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum

 
 

"Ms Pachabeyan supported me during more than a year through a very tense job situation. During this period of time I was able to really grow with the challenges with noticable effects for people around me as well as for myself.

... She gave me “tools” which became an immense help in coping with the daily routine and with challenging situations. I was able to improve and even to establish a new remit in my organization.
Thanks a lot, Ms Pachabeyan. You helped me to rediscover my inner “compass” and to align my carrer path without losing myself.”

J.M., 51, IT unit manager

 
 

“Many thanks for the professional and warm support that led to great results in a surprisingly brief time.

… When I reached a certain limit in my job, I asked Ms Pachabeyan for advice and support. She had my absolute trust as soon as I met her for a preliminary consultation. Over the course of her friendly and professional coaching, we were able to find an individual ‘toolset’ for me that helped me prepare for stressful situations in advance and break up old behavioral patterns.
Thank you for everything. I have recommended Ms Pachabeyan as a coach to all my acquaintances.”

P.T., 51, Union spokesperson

 
 

Ellen is a great coach who helped me through a demanding time when parenthood and professional career were depleting my energy more than can be considered healthy.

Although I already initiated some emergency measures, Ellen helped me identify the things that will give me energy going forward and focus on what is important by providing a very valuable and professional external perspective.

O.S., 44, Head of German Operations, Pharmaceutical industries

 
 

“I began my coaching after realizing that my work was consuming me. I was completely focused on ‘functioning’ and didn’t really have a life. Something needed to change!

… In my collaboration with Ms Pachabeyan over the last couple of months, she has opened my eyes for so many things. I learned a lot about myself and understood how my own principles and values were causing me stress. I now have tools for reacting appropriately.
I particularly appreciate Ms Pachabeyan’s empathy, and the way she helped me draw my own conclusions by asking the right questions.
My life is changing for the better, and I have my energy and zest for life back. My expectations have been exceeded!”

M.D., 50 , IT consultant

 
 

“I wanted to say thanks for coaching me. It has been tremendously helpful, albeit in a different way than I had anticipated.

… But that doesn’t mean it wasn’t great, to the contrary. Just the other day, my husband said I seemed different, more content and happy. Then he added, with notable disbelief: seems like coaching did help you after all. From him, that’s actually a huge compliment, and he’s right!
So: Many thanks, Ms Pachabeyan. You always seemed so clear and level-headed, but empathetic and very intuitive at the same time. That appealed to me, as did the fact that we could laugh together – humor really is the most important thing in life.

Should I find reason to have to sort myself out again, I will gladly come back.” 

F.G., 52, Lawyer

 
 

"The three coaching sessions with you were very effective and tremendously helpful. At present I feel to have approached my coaching targets to a significant and sufficient degree.

...If the situation changes again or other issues to work on within a coaching arise, I will come back to you and would appreciate if we could work together again. Thanks a lot for the excellent assistence!"

A.P., 38, Marketing manager

 
 

“Ms Pachabeyan coached me through a phase of new professional challenges. In the beginning, I was tremendously stressed.

… My focus had been to keep functioning. I was moving through life with tunnel vision, and my situation seemed to become bleaker by the day. My greatest challenges were my withdrawing from everything and everyone, and my fear of failure.
Consulting Ms Pachabeyan helped me reflect my situation and acquire strategies for getting a grip on the situation in a positive way. Many things about my everyday life started to make more sense: I’m more conscious of what’s important to me, and what gives me strength. That means more quality of life!
The most important thing for me was to learn that there is a solution for every situation! I’m more relaxed now, but also willing to take more risks, which helps me cope with stressful situations better. I’m trusting myself and in my own self-managing abilities more now.”

M.J., 36, managing director of a PR agency

 
 

“I was facing an increasingly demanding situation at work, and I needed professional help to make sure I could continue working until retirement. Ms Pachabeyan helped me get my confidence back.

… Through Ms Pachabeyan’s empathetic eyes, I began seeing myself in a different light. I learned a lot about myself in the process. She made me ask questions I had never really considered before. I found new ways of coping with the stress at work, even though it isn’t always easy to stick with the program – it takes a lot of self-discipline.
Coaching was particularly helpful for making a decision regarding my new position as an executive. All in all, I came out much more confident.
Now it’s important to keep doing and using what I learned. Thank you so much!”

J. S., 62, IT engineer in a data processing center

 
 

“When I came to see Ms Pachabeyan, I was feeling stuck, career-wise as well as in my private life. I wanted to try coaching to resolve my situation.

… Initially, we had planned about six sessions. My first impression was that Ms Pachabeyan would be very efficient for sorting myself out, and I was right.
Thanks to her effective methods, three sessions were all I needed until I had a breakthrough. I achieved my goal 100%. I’m very grateful to Ms Pachabeyan indeed.”

S.R., 39, finance controller, health service industry

 
 

“Thanks for a great coaching period! Ms Pachabeyan helped me reconcile my creativity with being more organized …

… which ultimately enhanced my quality of life. I actually have more time now! The key for me was to understand my own nature, and to adapt my actions to this knowledge.”

S.D., 43, film director  

 
 

“Ellen Pachabeyan coached me over a few months during an important career phase. Her coaching has been crucial to my being able to prepare for and successfully take a number of exams.

...Ms Pachabeyan not only helped me define interim goals and strategies for achieving them, but also made me change my inner attitude towards these challenges. I appreciate her professionalism and empathy. She creates a productive, trusting working atmosphere.”

Dr. J.S., 35, postdoc, science research center

 
 

“I can attest to a completely successful coaching with Ellen Pachabeyan. Her thorough understanding of my business, framework and the challenges I was facing has been beneficial on all accounts.

… Ellen Pachabeyan pointed out the right directions and helped me define what I wanted to do, with competence, experience and her deep understanding of human nature. Another reason why the coaching was so successful is that she made sure I stayed on course in terms of all the important issues we worked on.
Considering my own values and what was really relevant to me has helped me assess my situation, define my goals and find my direction. I highly recommend her services.”

R.S., 34, managing director of a communications agency

 
 

“I began my coaching with Ms Pachabeyan with a lot on my mind. I was generally unhappy with my situation at work at the time.

...Thanks to her using various “tools” from her large toolbox, we managed to sort out the chaos in my head quickly. I am aware of my values and motivators now. I actually have answers to the questions: Who am I, what can I do, what do I want.
Many thanks, Ms Pachabeyan.”

J.A., 36, account manager with a HR company

 
 

“I began coaching because I was feeling stuck both in my job and in life in general. Ms Pachabeyan greatly helped me ask myself the right questions and approach them systematically.

… With a wealth of experience and remarkable empathy, she accompanied me through the coaching process, which developed a huge intellectual and emotional dynamic, in a process-oriented but flexible way. The methods she used were perfect for my needs. My development was given a framework, but it was still my own.
It was really surprising for me to see distinct changes in such a short time period. My co-workers are noticing that I seem more content, they can tell I am calmer and more target-oriented in my actions, and that I pay more attention to them. The people I am close to notice that I’m more balanced and happy. I am more open, I have more energy and I feel fresh in a lot of ways. Had I known how effective coaching can be, I’d have done it a long time ago.”

 C.B., 41, senior executive with a federal agency

 
 

“I greatly benefited from the coaching for stress management and burnout prevention with Ellen Pachabeyan. She made me take action, and showed me strategies for how to activate myself and channel my stress whenever the situation called for it, even after the coaching was finished.

… In the beginning, she familiarized herself with my situation, by making me complete the stress questionnaire. Then she helped me with asking specific questions so I could find my own solutions.
In collaborating with her, I realized that my own perfectionist tendencies were an obstacle to finding the inner peace, power and energy I needed for my daily life. It was a significant step for me to appreciate myself, both my work and me as an individual, and to realize that I could find time for my family as well as for myself. It made my everyday life a lot brighter.
Dear Ms Pachabeyan, thank you so much for your support, for your open ear and the seemingly never ending questions that helped me so much.”

M.W., 53, area manager with a service provider

 
 

“It’s always amazing how Ms Pachabeyan manages to coax the right answers out of me when it comes to making complex decisions regarding my private and professional life, by activating certain methods and tools.

… When I was forced to completely reconsider my health, career goals and life balance, her coaching helped me see which steps I needed to take to make the necessary changes and implement them in my daily life.
I appreciate the well-structured process, Ms Pachabeyan’s professional and flexible manner, and especially her versatility. I always rely on her coaching when it comes to making important decisions, because I can be sure that the result of the sessions will make me see more clearly on all relevant levels, which mostly go beyond the rational. More often than not, the answers I found have been a surprise. It is important to me to know somebody who can assist me with finding my own way.”


E.S., 44, executive light designer

 
 

“My coaching with Ms Pachabeyan was mostly about finding out what I really want and what is right for me, and thereby determining the direction for my future career as an academic and as a member of the university...

… I found Ms Pachabeyan’s background as a psychologist especially helpful because it opened completely new perspectives in the coaching process. A coach with a background in economics wouldn’t have been the right person at all. We took a very broad perspective and worked on emotional issues in connection with my biography. This made me see more clearly and enabled me to identify my personal patterns as being the key to everything.
The coaching process gave me a clear perspective of the coming weeks and months, which I wouldn’t have thought possible when starting out.”

Dr. med. S.H., 35, neurologist at the University Medical Center

 
 

“Ellen Pachabeyan coached me through a very intense leadership training over the course of one year. I learned to take a more mindful approach to situations when I’m under pressure in my capacity as a leader, and learning to look at situations in a less rational and more emotional way…

… I found the analysis of the Reiss Profile especially helpful – in connection with realizing that I “want” a lot of things and that it’s time to allow myself these wishes. I have chosen a new path for myself, completely changing my career, and it seems to be sustainable. I’m very happy with my new situation, I feel awake and alive. I’ve had my own business for one year now.
Thank you, Ellen!”

B.B., 49, entrepreneur and manager

 
 

“The coaching Ms Pachabeyan gave me was very clearly structured and always took into account the relevant issues. She used a number of methods during our generally very target-oriented collaboration …

… It was also perfect to receive the documented results so soon, including theoretical input, for enabling me to stay on course regarding my goals. I trusted in Ms Pachabeyan at all times during the complete process.”
