I grew up in Munich, Germany as a late baby boomer and the eldest of two younger sisters. The general mind-set at that time prescribed that one needed to work hard, think hard and feel hard to achieve success in life. Early on in my life, I took everything very serious, wanted to live up to the expectation of my parents and worked very hard. In my late teens, my independent spirit had me move abroad to England, where I threw myself into a male dominated career path in sales and marketing. Working hard, thinking hard, feeling hard did get me to become a successful entrepreneur over the next 22 years. My Outer Reality had everything that one would wish for; success, a great career, financial freedom, yet my Inner Reality looked very different. I felt trapped, exhausted, powerless, purposeless and unfulfilled. I had to ask myself: How can I live my life in balance? How can I feel alive again? What does real freedom really mean to me? So, contrary to everyone’s advice I broke free….I went on my search for purpose and self-knowledge.
I came to New York City in 2001 and worked as a Marketing Director for a few years whilst re-inventing myself in the holistic field. In 2003, I graduated as a wellness educator in a holistic study; in 2005 I was accredited as a Certified Life Coach by the International Coach Federation (ICF). The ICF is committed to credibility and permanence of the Coaching Profession through establishing credentialing standards of coaches and training programs and providing a code of professional ethics. I was a Director of the ICF NYC-Chapter from 2005 to 2007. The International Coach Federation is the largest not-for-profit organization for coaches worldwide.
I founded my company, Dreams Into Actions, in 2005 in New York City serving others to live purposeful and fulfilling lives. I had discovered my purpose in life and felt a calling to support others in reaching their dreams and I believe that the key to living our dreams lies 'within' everyone.

I was working on organizing and marketing my nascent businesses that included being a personal trainer and an aquatics instructor. Because I did not have a strong personal support system in place, I decided to enlist the services of a coach to help me focus and prioritize my activities. I hired Claudia Bayr-Nobel to help me keep everything moving forward.
If that had been all she helped me do, it would have been well worth the investment. However, looking back at my experience and investment 6 months later, I must say that hiring Claudia was an incredible bargain. My career satisfaction shifted from a 3 to an 8.5 in that time. She also helped me balance and make some shifts in my self-perception that were holding me back from being as happy with my life as I could me. And her belief in my success helped to reinforce my progress.
I believe anyone who wants help in focusing multiple aspects of their lives can benefit from the perspective of a coach. One of Claudia’s best skills was her belief in my ability to succeed.
Sincerely and with much gratitude,

Recommendation for Claudia Bayr-Nobel, Life CoachCaroline, College Teacher, NYC
Having been referred to Claudia Bayr-Nobel through NOOMII on line, I am more than satisfied with our two sessions. Her penetrating yet compassionate questions helped me to give context to my decision, and to the hesitations I have had in deliberating about it. She helped me to see the value of the “Wheel of Life” as a graphic representation of the wholeness of my personality and needs. In talking with her about it, I came to see that the decision ahead is not about an isolated aspect of my life, but the whole of it.
I was also impressed by Claudia’s skills and intuitions in responding to the needs I presented. When I told her that an incompletely resolved trauma from a long time ago was not something I wanted to deal with at this point, she respected my decision about it. She also respected my decision that two sessions would be sufficient, rather than the usual four—and she helped me make best use of the time we had. She conveyed appreciation of my personality and experiences, rather than putting me in a category or box—which I thought was quite remarkable given the short time we had to get to know each other.
I should also mention her professionalism and adeptness (beyond the expected) is setting up our schedules quickly and expediently, responding to the urgency of my timeline for decision. The guidelines she set for our work, and the commitments she has urged me to express and hold myself to, provide the structure I need for responding productively to the decision I have to make. I am glad that I reached out for help through NOOMII and especially that Claudia Bayr-Nobel reached out to offer her strength, insight, and professionalism as resources for facing my current challenge.
Claudia was the driving force behind the launch of my business. Her guidance, insight and dynamic strategy gave me the solid foundation I needed to ignite my idea and turn it into reality. Unlike many coaches, Claudia has had phenomenal success in business herself, so she understands the deep complexities from operations to mind set to ensure success. But what really makes Claudia an incredible coach is her heart centred approach. She's brilliant.Ingrid Arna, Author and founder of IngridArna.com and BodyLove Daily www.ingridarna.com
"I approached employing a coach in my life the same way I had with a fitness trainer. In Claudia, I found someone whose personal and daily experience of life was an example of what I too could achieve.
Letting go of the past and of what I saw as missed opportunities, was key to finally getting back on the horse and genuinely being committed to my life dreams. As my coach, Claudia empowered me to move forward with determination and she has inspired in me a willingness to be a winner in all that I put my mind to.
Within weeks of Claudia’s coaching, I was creating a new reality; from quitting smoking, to beginning a full-time career as a photographer. Within 8 months I had secured a position for a weekly magazine in Europe and could look back on the goals we had arrived at months earlier and saw that I had achieved them.
Years of not being able to follow through with the goals I wanted to achieve began to peel away. My drive to win was increased 10 fold. I developed confidence in myself, knowing that I could accomplish all things by incorporating her techniques. She enabled me to get clear about my intentions; generating healthy relationships, and a healthier me. Her approach to ‘getting it done’ was gentle enough that I could see where I was self-sabotaging, and allowed me to actively get back on track. Thank you Claudia!"Yiannos, New York City, Photographer, A client since 2002
It has been a great pleasure working with Claudia. Claudia is an attentive and insightful listener who helped me to understand myself better, to trust my feelings more in connecting to others to become a better team leader. I also have gained clarity of my own desires, purpose and goals and created confidence to follow them. I would be pleased to work with Claudia again to unravel any road blocks I could encounter.Claire, Int. Marketing Manager and Senior Project Engineer, France
Thank you for your guidance, support and love! I have so appreciated our time together. Our sessions have helped me focus on my health and you have helped me transform my dreams into reality. I want you to know how I feel more grounded and are moving towards my goals. I believe in myself more than ever and know that the universe is ever abundant. I can make my entrepreneurial dreams come true and you helped me see my vision and make a plan to put it in play!Alison, Make-up Artist, NYC
"I was attracted to life coaching as a possible change in careers, and was referred to Claudia by a friend. Her support and encouragement has been invaluable, in helping me to both identify my dream and chart a course for action. I have learned so much from her about myself and my own strength. Coaching is a powerful and life changing experience for anyone interested in pursuing their purpose and realizing their dreams."Cheryl, NYC
"It was a great pleasure working with you, Claudia. In a short time you have helped me to see how my negative beliefs created blocks in my life. You are a wonderful spiritual being and teacher with great insights. You supported me and helped me cut through my blocks. Thank you Claudia ."Marina R. Philadelphia, PA
Claudia has a way of sifting through my cobwebs to allow me to focus on what is truly important to me! Through my sessions with Claudia, I also find that I can better streamline my actions to achieve my goals in a manageable way. She also reminds me of the need to maintain my awareness of the flow and support of the universe so that I can achieve my dreams without stress and at a doeable and yet inspired pace.Sherrin Bernstein, Touch Fitness, Informative Bodywork, NYC & Florida
"The MAPP test really helped me realize my potential in fields I would have not otherwise considered."Sally T., New York City
"The MAPP assessment was incredible! It was almost eerie how accurate it was."Patrica S., New Jersey
"I have made more progress in just a few weeks than I did with 6 years of private therapy! The Emotional Intelligence Testing has helped me realize that there is one core problem, not a million issues that hold me back from becoming all that I can be. I have made tremendous strides in not only my professional but also my private life. I strongly recommend it!"Linda S., Westhampton, New York
"Claudia has a way of getting to the heart of the matter such that I totally get it’s my heart I need to trust not the chatter in my head! She has helped me to understand there's nothing "wrong" with me, and to re-focus my energy on what I really want to create in my life by believing in the new ME"Gem, Vancouver
"I come from a tradition where I always had to listen, obey and follow rather than being allowed to express myself and say what I really thought. Most of the time I had learned lessons thru criticism and humiliation. I lived thru my adulthood as a bad communicator. It was not until I met Claudia, my life coach, when I realized how frustrated I was, being a shy communicator and life was a series of misunderstandings. Claudia helped me discover and face my challenge. Now I am happily accepting the challenge and take responsibility for all the negative events that happened in my life. I was never honest to myself, didn’t love and respect myself. Having realized this, I tuned into her positive energy right away and a series of transformations began, her guidance stays with me like the truth brightens all situations that arise. Now I am in peace with myself and have reached a certain level of clarity. Life is an ongoing change from now and only for the better. I am forever grateful. Thank you Claudia!"Jean, Brooklyn
"Finding Claudia was one of the best blessings of the summer. She gently guided me to observe the root and the way of my life. Her insights and support continually challenged me to cut through my obstacles and begin to reconstruct my life in the way I wanted. This is exactly what I needed. As a college student, I have received more value in working with Claudia than from any class I've ever had. Everyone deserves to benefit from a personal coach as skilled as Claudia who will bring out our innate human ability to live our dreams. I am truly thankful for her wisdom and loving nature that has kept me focused on building a stronger foundation that will last forever."Julie, New York City
Claudia's coaching style is flexible, adroit and certainly experienced. There's a masterful spirit behind her coaching. She has the prerequisite and refined ability of letting go of 'seemingly' driving issues and be present to what is actually going on that are driving those issues. She listened, asked probing questions, was very pleasant and she pounced when the mouse needed prodding. I got positive reinforcement of my interest in being the kind of coach who can coach from the popularly expected mundane approaches to the more esoteric like quantum theory and the connections to god/universe. I specifically learned about Voice Dialogue from Claudia. That is an awesome body of knowledge and approach! I got to see the various 'selves' within me that I got to embrace and make one under the aegis of my aware ego. Bottom line, I have improved control over who I am from the understanding that who I am is made up of a plethora of competing personalities. As a result, I am much more focused and aligned about getting the things that I want in life. Specifically, I've brought in more money with greater ease and am moving positively into my life purpose activities... basically, I'm doing things that make me happy, inspired and satisfied.Alvin, Entrepreneur, New York City
Working with Claudia has greatly assisted me in all areas of my life. I decided to work with a professional coach, as I had realized that certain beliefs, fears and mental blocks were preventing me from living to my highest potential. Claudia, with utmost kindness, honesty and persistence, using various methods including Voice Dialogue, visualizations and other tools, has helped me free myself from a lot of the emotional baggage that stood in the way of reaching my goals. With Claudia's assistance, I was able to clarify what my dreams and desires are, which was a necessary step on my path to personal success. I highly recommend working with Claudia to anybody with a desire for a well-rounded, happy and successful life.Dorota, Real Estate Investments, NYC
