Music therapy & Coaching

Welcome, please scroll down. and enjoy!


I've been coaching clients since February 2015 and have helped them reach their personal goals, to become fitter and healthier. The right mindset is key and through daily communication, we can effectively take small steps each day and create lasting results. Via coaching calls, we can clarify your goals and next steps and find answers to all your questions and thoughts.

As a coach, I work on several life areas of a client and am truly interested in building a long-term relationship. Helping you become more productive by getting up early, become healthier by choosing the right foods and exercising more or Minimalism are my areas of expertise. It's quite a responsibility, but the put in work is worth it. With my therapeutical and psychological background, personal experiences and my ongoing self-studies, I work with compassion and empathy and understand the power of habits and mindsets. For most cases, I can totally relate to problems people are facing. No-one says it's easy to get started and build a new habit. It can surely be a progress of several months, if not, years. I'd always encourage you to take small steps every day and if you get overwhelmed, just do one small thing - the rest will take its course.


As your accountability coach, I will guide and motivate you daily to achieve your goals. We differentiate between long-term and short-term goals. By achieving the short-term goals you build momentum, become more positive and sooner or later you reach your long-term goal.

»The key is that you need to share your experiences and feelings with your coach. Remember that you need to do more work on your goals than the coach because it's your goal and it's you who's trying to improve! When you do share, you're giving the coach the opportunity to personalize their advice and notice places where you might be limiting your own progress. Check in on your goal each day, share your progress with your coach, and keep an open and willing mind when they make suggestions.« -

Serey helped me to wake up early. I struggled waking up early for as long as I can remember. With Serey's help and accountability, I have been able to wake up consistently for the first time that I can remember. Thank you.


Coaching with Serey was extremely helpful [...]. I liked how I always felt that I kept progressing, even though it seemed like there was nothing left to do! [...] Today I can wake up at 7:30 AM normally. Again, many thanks Serey!


Serey shares excellent advice about waking up early and her coaching technique adapts to your personality. For me, I needed to wake up at 6am daily and didn't want to work my way incrementally. Serey supported my goal and shared her tips to achieve this. Thanks to her, I have added an extra 21 hours to my week!


I wanted to eat cleaner, feel healthier and lose weight so I hired Serey as my coach. Fast forward 5 weeks, I’ve lost 6 pounds, cook at home more, resist sweets like it’s my job, and feel amazing! Serey really listened to what my goals were, and helped me figure out how I can reach them. She checks in with me daily, offers insightful advice (recipes, social strategies), and is always super encouraging! I highly recommend her as your coach!


Serey is a great coach! She is consistent, thoughtful and adapts to your needs. I worked with her on getting up early and quickly realized that waking up on time is a byproduct of several other factors including: bedtime, scheduling your day, awareness for where your time escapes, setting realistic expectations, holding yourself accountable... and on and on. She has the resources and advice to help you get down and up on time and make the most of you day.

Music therapy

"Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent"- Victor Hugo

What is Music therapy?

Music therapy is the systematic use of music within a therapeutic relationship which aims at restoring, maintaining and furthering emotional, physical and mental health.

Music therapy is a practice-oriented scientific discipline which is closely connected to other scientific disciplines, especially medicine, social sciences, psychology, musicology, and pedagogy.

»Music therapy« is an overarching term for different music therapy concepts, which are psychotherapeutic in nature, in contrast to pharmacological and physical therapies.

Different music therapy methods are respectively based on different psychological, psychotherapeutic or philosophical traditions, such as depth psychology, behaviorism, systemic, anthroposophical or holistic-humanistic approaches.

About me

I'm glad, you're visiting my new website. I am a certified digital coach and Music Therapist (B.A). I have coached over 100 clients in achieving their goals of building habits for a healthy balanced lifestyle. As a Happy Bootcamps Coach, I host weekly intense outdoor workouts to connect like-minded people and have fun exercising together.

I lived in Cologne (born there), New Jersey, London and Heidelberg and am now located in Berlin.

I continuously strive to improve myself personally and professionally and am open to new perspectives and different mindsets. I love exercising, enjoy good food and always wanted to work with people. Over the years I've also noticed that it's very important to take care of oneself. As early as in my teens I have started blogging, made music and have been interested in Photography and Videography. I'm very grateful to be able to do those things in my freelance work and through my Youtube-Channel and am looking forward to what's coming next.

My vision is to help as many people investing in their physical and mental health, to prevent later diseases and have a fulfilled, healthy life. I want to encourage you to proactively choose your habits and thoughts to create a life you desire.

I believe that every person decides for his everyday life and can take actions to live the life one wants to live.
