How can I help?


Coaching 1:1

Dieses hoch-individuelle Coaching-Programm hilft dir, dich und dein Potential besser kennenzulernen und deinen eigenen Weg zu gehen –  authentisch, selbstbestimmt und frei.


Group Coaching & App-Support

This program enables you to implement lasting empowering changes, stop self-sabotage, better manage stress and lead a more fulfilling life.



In my work as a psychologist (Master of Science), alignment and mental fitness coach and mindfulness teacher, I experience these patterns again and again: limiting beliefs about what is possible, the associated loss of power, the lack of meaning and inspiration, the feeling of being stuck in old patterns and fears, fulfilling other people's expectations...

When I learned to step into my own power, to let go of other people's expectations and follow my own path, it was like waking up, truly coming alive.

I feel called to empower other people to also find their own strength and purpose and to find their own path


What Will You Do With Your One Wild and Precious Life

Alisa Gunzelmann


Through my own experiences abroad, I know the challenges of living as an expat.
This has taught me that I need a more stable approach to my life and work that grounds me and my clients, regardless of where we live.
That's why my work addresses the root cause, not the symptoms, by training the mind to break down limiting thought and behavior patterns and strengthen our wisdom brain regions. This allows for more flow, capacity, creativity and well-being. I also work in a very human, client-centered way that is completely tailored to the person I have in front of me. I support people from all over the world to find their personal path to well-being and to honor their uniqueness with all their needs, fears and dreams.

Coach & Mentor

Alisa became my coach and mentor last year when I was looking for someone who would help me along my journey.
I felt an immediate connection with her which we cherish until this day. I could feel her genuine interest in my personal and entrepreneurial story from the beginning and I felt extremely well supported throughout the process. Her professional skills paired with a great portion of empathy, dedication and curiosity is what has helped me take my business to the next level.
She even offered her support in between our calls and made sure we would both celebrate my progress as much as possible.
Alisa has this unique ability that made me feel like she is not only here to support me as a coach but also as a friend who is truly interested in seeing me succeed. I can highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for that particular combination or simply someone who is ready to go the extra mile with you. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her and would do so again.
Thanks, Alisa! (-:

Book & Professional Re-orientation

I have used Alisa's coaching services on different occasions over the last years: The first time for the conception, writing and publishing of a book I had wanted to write for a long time. The second time for a personal professional reorientation. Each time, Alisa met me exactly where I was and I felt very well understood, seen and supported. She asked smart questions that led me to new solutions from within myself. She was reliably available and an appreciative, enriching, inspiring counterpart. Her profound knowledge and the tools she provided gave me security and courage for my project and guaranteed implementation. I can only heartily recommend her to everyone and encourage everyone to afford this professional, transformative and compassionate support.

Clarity & Roadmap

Thank you very much for the coaching! I really enjoyed it and it helped me to find clarity very quickly about what I was actually looking for and to proceed in a structured and goal-oriented way to get there: Creating my own business, here I can finally fully use my skills and passion!


Self-Employment & Empowerment

At first it was hard for me to imagine working out the solution from within MYSELF. I had all these fears and beliefs that stood in my way. That I couldn't do it, that I wasn't enough.
Over time, however, I realized that coaching actually works. Facing my fears with your support and developing confidence in myself was a major turning point in my life. With a concrete plan in my pocket, I left my old job that wasn't fulfilling me and finally ventured into self-employment!
Thanks for helping me help myself!

Dear Alisa,

vielen Dank für die superschnelle Erstellung einer klaren und anschaulichen Dokumentation unserer gestrigen intensiven Arbeit. Das ist eine sehr konkrete und inspirierende Arbeitsgrundlage! Und nochmals ein herzliches Dankeschön für Dein sehr professionelles Coaching. Ich werde dich gerne weiter empfehlen, wenn entsprechende Anfragen kommen 🙂


Holistic Coach

The coaching with Alisa was very enriching for many aspects of my life. The best aspect for me was to realize the sum of assets and achievements I’ve already accomplished til now and how beneficial clear goal setting is in all areas of life. What I also enjoyed was Alisa’s very structured but still flexible and personal approach plus the number of tools she provided. If anybody is looking for a holistic coach to solve questions regarding personal or professional life, I can highly recommend Alisa.

Calm & Control

After my initial skepticism that an app could put my thoughts on the right track, give me more serenity and calm, and reduce anxiety, I had a very pleasant and motivating conversation with Alisa, which convinced me. 
After a very short time after signing up, I was already immersed in the subject, knew my so-called "saboteurs" that were making me weak and got to know the strengthening, calm and serene so-called "sage". The course was embedded in a binding schedule, accompanied by weekly instructive video impulses, my familiar chat group and a weekly virtual meeting in which experiences and approaches were discussed openly. 
Mindfulness exercises were offered several times a day, which became an indispensable partner for me in learning to be more calm, more relaxed and more confident.
They playfully appeal to all the different senses, such as hearing, touching, seeing and breathing. I can schedule the training sessions and use them where and when I want or need them. 
Even after completing the 6-week course, these exercises, like the entire app, remain accessible. Every evening there is a self-reflection that invites you to answer a few questions about what you have learned. 
Personally, I have learned that PQ Reps strengthen my power, reorganize my mind and how to retrieve my thoughts when they wander and scent unnecessary dangers and cause unrest.
The course is highly recommended, fun, extremely entertaining, very instructive and easy to put into practice immediately.

Lasting change

For me, this program is the first concept with which change can really succeed and be implemented permanently in everyday life. Although I was familiar with the individual "components" of the program for professional reasons (mindfulness, self-compassion, stress patterns, neuroscientific background), the combination of everything made an amazing process possible for me. The daily support via the PQ app with the 2min exercises plus the respective encouraging feedback, the helpful and loving support through the weekly coaching sessions in the group with Alisa and the explanatory Saturday videos by Shirzad Chamine are easy to integrate into everyday life. And I increasingly enjoyed doing more than just what was necessary.

It was gratifying to better recognize and classify my saboteurs and to use my Sage skills more consciously. It is helpful that the program is still available after the 6 weeks or that there is a further "Grow". I have been supported in this way for six months and I am now sure that I have "learned" it and won't fall back into old patterns. I love the freedom to play with the skills I have learned and the opportunity to apply these tools to all areas of life (stress, conflict, self-development, leadership, etc.). I can only recommend the program!

Change deep limiting beliefs

I first heard about "Positive Intelligence" (PQ) from my mindfulness meditation teacher, Alisa, who has been leading our group for years. I know she is not the person to get involved with programs/methods unless they are legitimate and substantial.
I decided to take part because my life was out of balance, or rather, I was quite unhappy, felt trapped in my circumstances, friendships had become difficult and I didn't know how to turn this around.
Now, after only 3 weeks out of a total of 7 weeks, I am fascinated, surprised, sometimes challenged, sometimes happy. I am learning about my thoughts, my beliefs, my feelings and my reactions. The exercises and teachings of the program have taken away the power and manipulation of the saboteurs. I feel such relief that I am able to change long-standing beliefs and habits to live my life without stress and unhappiness.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to participate in this wonderful and nurturing PQ program.


Spürbare Verbesserung

The Positive Intelligence program has noticeably improved my everyday life. When I am overwhelmed by negative emotions and thoughts, the app offers me great support and makes it easier for me to deal with my saboteurs. 
A clear recommendation to everyone!

PQ - enables you to move from self-sabotaging to thriving as modus operandi

When I was first introduced to ‘PQ - Positive Intelligence’ in the context of a mindfulness workshop conducted by Alisa, I was skeptical on how an App-based program could really build the momentum for lasting change. And, at the same time, I was curious to put myself through the experience. And, boy, am I glad I did! The PQ program has been very mindfully crafted by Shirzad Chamine incorporating the wisdom from the latest research in relevant areas of expertise, such as neuroscience, cognitive behavioral psychology, positive psychology, performance science, as well as his vast personal experience and insights from many years of working with coaching clients from all walks of life which helped Shirzad in developing a deep understanding on how the human mind works.
The course takes you by the hand and breaks the curriculum down into baby-steps that can easily be integrated into your daily routines. It offers a great mix of background information and action steps geared towards developing and integrating new habits of operating your conscious mind. Shirzad motivates and cheers you on so that it is fun and rewarding to stick with the curriculum. Thus over the course of the program it becomes easier and more and more natural for you to identify when your mind is running on auto-pilot producing more of the real-life results that you no longer want to see manifesting because they do not serve you in creating the life that you truly wish for vs. when you are creating life experiences from Sage mode with much more beneficial and rewarding outcomes.
By the end of the program you have developed a pretty good feel for when you are in Saboteur vs. Sage mode and how to consciously opt for “thriving” vs. “surviving”.
Favorable by-products of PQ: deep breathing, more relaxed vagal system, overall trend towards expansion vs. contraction, better choices.

So, if you are looking for an easy-to-use tool which offers a path towards lasting change in upgrading your live experience on all three levels (mental - emotional - physical) - a PQ coaching with Alisa would be a great choice to invest in yourself.

The weekly POD meetings throughout the program hosted and moderated by Alisa offer valuable additional insights gained from a well-structured exchange amongst fellow PQ-students, supported by Alisa’s passionate and professional coaching expertise.
