“It’s easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” Frederick Douglass

Magdalena Kelaridis

From a young age, I have been fascinated by human behavior and the intricate workings of the mind and how things work ingeneral. This passion for understanding led me to pursue a double bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Management, followed by a Master’s degree in Human Resource Management.

After some years in HR and then politics, I no longer felt satisfied with my work. I didn’t feel that I had arrived at a career where my heart truly lies. Seeking greater fulfillment, I pursued further specialized training, becoming a certified Counselor (Lebens und Sozialberater, where we help people stay mentally healthy). I also gained expertise in prenatal bonding, pre- and perinatal education, family-couples-sexual coaching, supervision, conflict resolution, and mediation,… This extensive educational background has empowered me and provided the knowledge I was deeply seeking. I wanted to explore and understand the complexities of human behavior from multiple perspectives. Who are we? Why do we react the way we do? Does this behavior stem from the here and now, or could it be rooted in many years or even generations back?

My insatiable curiosity and love for learning have always driven me to ask numerous deep questions, which can be challenging for others. This quest for knowledge isn’t just about personal satisfaction; it’s about sharing insights and connecting the dots across various disciplines. I believe that true understanding stems from interdisciplinary collaboration, where diverse information is analyzed and synthesized to create meaningful conclusions.

Some describe me as a “complicated thinker,” but for me, it’s not complicated. My brain often connects the dots where others don’t see them, sometimes faster than I can articulate and other realize. Translating these insights into words can sometimes be challenging, as I need to convert complex mental pictures into understandable language. However, the moment of clarity, when confusion gives way to true understanding, is deeply rewarding. It is a feeling of satisfaction, combined with a sense of, “What why didn’t I understand earlier.”, or “Why didn’t I think about that before?” Whether it’s me or others experiencing this epiphany, it brings a deep, warm feeling to my heart and soul, filled with positive energy that’s hard to describe.

These “light bulb” moments that my clients, students and workshop participants experience, when true understanding dawns, are even more gratifying for me, than my own discoveries.❤️

I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to do what I love. My work feels less like a job and more like a fulfilling pursuit. I hope to help my three children and others find similar joy and passion in their own lives, fostering a lifelong love for learning and understanding. I know not everyone is fortunate enough to attend schools that nurture a passion for learning, curiosity, and creativity. However, I was lucky to attend schools that preserved these natural traits.

I know that I can make a significant impact, helping others navigate the complexities of human behavior and fostering environments where knowledge, understanding, peace, and health thrive.
This is important to me because I believe all humans should have the opportunity to live a wonderful, healthy and fulfilling life.
