me and the “LTC” Team

“It is in playing and only in playing that the individual child or adult is able to be creative and to use the whole personality, and it is only in being creative that the individual discovers the self.“

Donald Winnicott

Hello I am Daniela Schlemm committed to transform your life with ease and fun.

I love helping people becoming free from limiting beliefs and to develop their unique potentiality.

LTC „Life Therapy Coaching“ was born out of my passion for play and my expertise as a Body Mind Coach and Integrative Therapist.

It is especially important for me to integrate playfulness into coaching and therapy, as in play we have the chance to try the new without consequences. We become aware of our inner play and can change the script according to our true nature.
I believe that personal development and therapy is play, two people playing and one supports the other to get into play again were the flow got stuck. 
To be able to play is a sign of good health, resilience and well being, uncluttered and free from emotional blocks. Playfulness in itself is a resource. Let’s not take things too seriously but play the game of life well. 

My background is in clowning, improvisational theatre and dance.

I am also a state certified Clown 😜 and Laban/ Bartenieff Movement Analyst CLMA

Daniela Schlemm 

I studied Psychology in Bremen, Germany 

Performing as a professional clown and teaching groups in the art of play, I became very aware of life’s dramas and the scripts that seem to endlessly repeat themselves – which might be amusing and funny on stage, but less so in real life. In real life we want a happy ending.

A snippet from my performing times

Once I became aware of this, I was determined to find ways to rewrite my life’s scripts, live a more satisfying and joyful life, feel healthier, have more money, and all-in-all be the best that I can. 

On this journey I discovered the powerful techniques of Voice Dialogue, wingwave® coaching and the Pesso Boyden approach, and found them completely transformative, discovering that change can be faster than you ever expected it. Now professionally trained in body-oriented transformational psychology I want to share these exciting tools.

I believe we are born to be curious and creative; to keep learning, growing and changing continuously. I love helping clients to do this, guiding them towards change in the direction they choose. Helping them to feel happier in their skin, mind and body, becoming confident, calm and in balance; experiencing flow and discovering a different kind of reality. Seeing my clients astonished by what they have achieved and how different they can feel about issues which had been causing them great anxiety is so rewarding.

I believe I can offer an unusually comprehensive range of therapeutic and coaching approaches to suit all manner of challenges and every individual client.

I am fully insured and receive regular supervision.

I run „The Joy of Life Group Retreats“ together with my amazing friend and colleague 

Deborah Clarke

With a background as an actor and theatre director, and in arts and education development, I have always found fulfilment in helping people find confidence, creativity and enjoyment. Eighteen years ago, I found another outlet for my passion for bringing the best out of people: coaching. Since then I have helped people from many walks of life make the most of their personal potential. 

Coaching provides a supportive and neutral environment for people to examine what they want and consider the best way to achieve it. For me, coaching is an opportunity for a life-changing conversation. The simple process of asking questions and listening enables my clients to confront and explore challenges, address issues and discover the right decisions. I believe that my clients always have the all the answers they need; I just to get to them to ask the right questions. 

I love discovering new approaches and specialisms, particularly the profound mind-body therapy known as the Pesso Boyden Psychomotor System; as well as peak-performance coaching techniques. I have studied how bioenergetic personality types and our early life can inform our personality styles and life choices. I am a ‘Coach U’ graduate and continue to expand my knowledge of coaching and therapy: I love learning anything that makes me better at my job, helping me to achieve more effective and long-lasting results for my clients.

I am an accredited Pesso Boyden coach and wingwave® practitioner.   

The weeklong retreats bring you to life, drawing on our wide professional experience and training in dance, theatre, dramatic arts and personal development. Many of life’s unseen limits become so obvious when you step outside the box. Give yourself permission to play and not take things too seriously. It is a liberating experience to discover and laugh at all those silly rules we forget we are following.
