About me:

I am Florian, neurobiologist, coach and life coach. Through my different activities I can devote myself in a wonderful way to my great passions, working with people and science.

I believe that it is a very big challenge to lead a satisfied life, because for this we have to balance many things in our life like work, family, friends, relationship and health. Our social environment, i.e. the media, social media and advertising, presents us with an idealized image of humanity that has nothing to do with the way in which we can personally lead our lives in the most satisfying way.

It is my goal to help people find their personal path to a more satisfying life. Neurobiology can help us to better understand our brain and make it easier for us to deal with it. I also firmly believe that more contentment from all of us leads to better interaction with each other, making life easier in general.
