Dr Petra Bock is the author of several international bestsellers, a management consultant, and a groundbreaker in European life and business coaching. She is an intellectual pioneer in Europe's German-speaking regions.

Petra Bock was born in 1970 in a small town near Frankfurt am Main. Following her parent's divorce, she and her older brother moved to a county seat in Lower Bavaria in 1980, where they grew up. The conservative atmosphere of Bavaria in the 1980s was challenging the curious and idealistic young women passionate about human rights and politics from an early age. She was driven by one question: how can change lead to improvement, both in her life and society?
In 2008, she founded her academy for coaches in Berlin. Today, the company is considered one of the foremost addresses for professional coaching seminars and advanced education programs. 


The author devoted the first decade of the twenty-first century to developing her award-winning method, which helps individuals and organizations break free from internal barriers and achieve success. She exclusively teaches this method at her academy to advanced coaches, therapists, and leaders, while continuing to refine and develop it. 
In addition to her work as a highly sought-after coach, speaker, and trainer, she is currently dedicating her time to a significant project centred on the theory of human thinking and the development processes she has created.
