  • positive review  Petra is a wonderful singing tutor and coach. She has the perfect balance between working on technique and emotional engagement of a song, whilst encouraging exercises beyond the repertoire to develop the voice. Petra is also one of the most patient coaches ever, I've been her student for a while now and really happy with how things are progressing!

  • positive review  Petra has been very helpful in me helping MY clients and students! I asked her to come speak to a class I was teaching about boundaries in the studio. Her knowledge and experience in psychology make her highly intuitive, while giving her the ability to call out people to their best selves. I recommend Petra highly when you need performance anxiety help, as well! Thank you, Petra, for your work in this area!

  • positive review  Petra had been on my radar for some time. I asked her to help me address my mindset recently when navigating a health challenge. I really appreciated combination of somatic and cognitive work - it helped me get out of the intellectual zone and into the body zone which was exactly what I needed. Now when my challenge raises its head, I have strategies for 'tuning in' and am coping far better. Petra's work on the emotional, psychological and somatic self can really help you move forward if you are feeling stuck.
